Author Topic: QRZ Lookup count  (Read 2823 times)

 Just curious if anyone knows if when a ham gets a new vanity call does the QRZ Lookup count on their web sight database start over at zero ? My old call had a high lookup count and my new vanity call started the count all over again. Also do you think that QRZ can put it back up where it was ? Thanks and 73. Jim W5JJG. Previous KF5HRN

Click on Detail tab.
Then Edit Record.
Then Callsign Data

There's a box where you can enter whatever callsign lookup count you want.

Yesterday my callsign lookup count was 3,453. Last night it was zero. This morning it's 12,555.

I think that as NN4RH so accurately indicates through his actions, the lookup count counts for nothing and is indicative of nothing, so why worry about it.

Since only you (and the sitemasters at QRZ, of course) have access to your record, it does show something.  If you don't change it, that is.  Even though, the count is supposed to be how many times one particular callsign is looked up--not how many times people have looked up a person.

If I'm not mistaken, the Qrz lookup will automatically transfer over to your new callsign anyway, so there is a valid reason for setting it to whatever your old count was.

I tried changing my lookup count to a googol, but it won't fit.  Cry

Really. Changig your lookuo count in some pathetic
vain attempt to show people that you are a well
known and/or popular op is just stupid, or
a sign of deep rooted insecurities.

Too funny..........

I could not care less what my lookup count is.

It's not the lookup count on QRZ that matters; it's the QSOs in the log that matter.

I kind of agree with the previous two posters.  Haven't touched mine, and I don't intend to.

 Actually there is no way to change your count. I tried what the second post mentioned and it does not work at all. Wen you click on EDIT Record there are no options at Callsign Data to change it???

It's there.

Under the green box which has the fcc data in it, there are some other boxes. One of them is "Lookup Count". Just type a number in the box. You  might have to scroll down the page a bit to see it.

By the way, next to it is the "real" lookup count in case you ever want to go back.

Look me up and you will be sure that it's possible.

I suppose that would be the spot where the "old call" number would be after a vanity change if that data remained available directly in the database. 

Otherwise you probably have to ask to see if they saved data from before the change.

It would be nice if qrz provided a way for you to see who all had looked you up, that would be much more interesting to me than just a number.
