Exchange_rcvd is a field of particular interest in contesting. This is where you can log the contest exchange which you have received from your QSO counterpart. The exchange_rcvd may be any string of characters or a QSO-number. More information on how to customize  the loginput line for various contest modes is outlined in the chapter logging modes. The exchange_rcvd field does not belong to the QSO essentials.This results in no checking for data integrity while the QSO is logged.


Like all other fields the exchange_rcvd field can be customized on the loginput line. All features described for customizing the loginput lineapply for this field including the commands available and search operations ( keyword search, quick search) in particular.


With respect to the field properties the exchange_rcvd field is not equipped with a stack by default. Of course you can define an input stack .If defined the stack will pop up directly below the exchange_rcvd field on pressing Ctrl+Cursor+Down. If you want to load into the exchange_rcvd field you just select the line of interest by mouse or by pressing Cursor+Down. A left mouse key double click will enter the stack line into the exchange_rcvd field. Likewise you can press Enter for the same action. Both operations will not only load from the stack but also move the input focus to the field to the right of the exchange_rcvd field. This saves an additional keystroke.

Every input field can be clicked: See loginput line.
