Staying Connected to DX Spots

Pat Whelton

Hello All.  I recently bought a new PC and placed ACLog back in service.  I’m running v. 5.2 and restored the log from backup.  I ordered new TQSL files from the ARRL and successfully uploaded and downloaded from LoTW.  The new PC is running Windows 7 Pro.  The big problem I’m having now is trying to stay connected to the various Telnet Hosts.  I can stay connected for probably 1/2 an hour and the next time I look at the spotting screen there has been no DX activity for several minutes.  I have to do a cntl-D and reconnect.  This is getting to be a pain the the tookus.  I use to be able to call up ACLog at 6:00 in the morning and remain connected all day until bedtime around 10:00 pm.  I’ve tried different Telnet Hosts VE7CC, DXSPOTS, etc but they all drop me after a short while.
Has anyone recently placed a new system online and experienced this?  What did you do to fix it?
Regards & Best DX,
