Re: Spotting stops working

Hey Mel.  Not sure if this will match your situation or not but after I acquired a new PC I had the same issue you are experiencing.  What I did to fix (repair) the issue was go into the Power & Sleep settings and change  the Sleep setting to “NEVER”.  I don’t remember what the factory default is but every time the new PC exceeded that default it would lose it’s DX Spots because it was no longer connected to the internet.


Again, this might not be what you are experiencing but who knows.  Give it a shot.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Spotting stops working


When using AC Log, I will start the DX Spotting and it will work fine. Then it will stop receiving new spots. If I switch to another Telnet spotting program, again it will work fine for awhile then stop again. If I now switch back to the original it will start again only to stop latter.

Any suggestions on what to try to keep it active, especially during a contest.
