I submitted my Cabrillo file last night and it went through with no problems.

So, I dunno.

I uploaded my Logger+ SPDX RTTY Cabrillo to the designated site with no errors. That was six hours ago.

attempted to upload log to SP website, but it got rejected for Cabrillo errors. Is there a separate template
for Cabrillo for this contest? I haven't ever had a problem before for any contest, so this is new to me.

Unusual Bug found during FLQP

Mitch NW0M
 

I encountered a very unusual bug this weekend during FLQP.  It is a quirky error but it does create an incorrect log entry and the condition is repeatable.  The bug logs a Q for the wrong band.  I was using version 7598 but can re-create the bug with 7644.

Here are the steps by an example:
  1. On freq 7041 enter K4OJ and WAG county.  Do not log.
  2. Change rig to freq 14041.  Enter K4OJ and WAG county.  Do not log.
  3. Go back to 7041, K4OJ appears above entry box as it should.  Hit Space Bar to populate K4OJ and WAG.  Do not log.
  4. Go back to 14041.  K4OJ and WAG already display IN the call entry box (which is likely the issue).  Log the call.  Call is logged but for freq 7041.

Like I said it's pretty quirky but it did happen to me today.  When you have peanut station such as mine you do a lot of back-and-forth...  :-)

Maybe it's not worth the trouble to look into but I thought I would report it.

Michael,

Station Category = Expedition conflicts with IOTA contest. I added a change to allow the use of the Expedition selection only when QSOPARTY is selected. It will be in Tuesday's release.

Here are the instructions. I will update the section to include the Expedition selection after Tuesday.

I seem to recall there was something strange about an Expedition working
the County Line in N1MM+ for the 7QP contest. I think we had to indicate
Rover or something and any time we had to restart the program we had to
re-input our county lines? There was some special keystroke combination
to enter the county line. I thought there was some discussion regarding
this on this list, but I am unable to find it right now. I know it
caused me personally some confusion last year and I'm sure it resulted
in some incorrect logging. I would like to avoid that this year.

May 4/5 is The Big Weekend for QSO parties: Indiana, New England, 7QP,

the 5th. With N1MM+ no matter where you are, you can run all four at the
same time in the same log.

Here's how. If you are inside one of the four, start a new log, pick
QSOParty and then select your state from the drop-down list. If you are
anywhere else, select IN7QNE as your "state". These parties permit
county line operation. Enter their whole exchange,?? i.e. IDWAS/ORMAL and
N1MM turns it?? into two log lines for proper scoring.?? Remember that
each time a mobile enters a new county he is considered a new station.
This is another reason to copy their whole exchange.

Each of these five "state" choices use the same multiplier list so when
you enter an exchange like WORMA from New England, ORDES from 7QP, INMAD
from Indiana, or KDE from Delaware, N1MM will give you the proper
credit. That is, you'd get an MA credit as a 7QP participant and the guy
in MA gets his Oregon credit. The beauty of all this comes at the end of
the weekend. Simply send your Cabrillo file to all four of the sponsors.
That's it. They will score your log and disregard any non-counting

Dave,

You are welcome to try my telnet DX node, which runs VE7CC's CC  Cluster.  Other than relocating from Western Washington to North Central Kentucky in the summer of 2016, it has been up and available almost continuously. The user load is very light so there's plenty of room. The various issues with telnet and Windows come and go in the form of internet outages and forced Windows updates. Nevertheless it is just a simple matter of reconnecting. Autoconnect, autoreconnect, and keep alive are very helpful if your telnet client supports those features.  Here is the information for my DX node. Everyone is welcome: 

w7jd.ddns.net, Port 9000

Also, the companion CC User program works well with CC Cluster. I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Gary, K7EK

It is not the effect of radio static reduction as displayed by the spectrum window. It is the omission of static crash data FROM the spectrum window.

You won't hear any better, but signals will be easier to see in the waterfall and better detected by the program (red dots).

As you can see from the picture of the radio screen, there was a
lot of static on 40m. The top of the other picture shows the old
static reduction approach using IC-7610 via CAT. The lower part of
that picture shows the static reduction approach used for radios
supported via ExtIO and for the IC-7610 via FTDI.
