Re: Using Rig Interface and CW Form Simultaneously #aclog

Kevin Gray


Normally you need two separate Com ports.

One for the Rig interface, and another separate port to key your CW.

More detail can be found here :


Some newer radios will do both, using one USB cable, but still require the correct com port drives to do so.

They actually create 2 different ports from the one USB connection.

When ACLog 5.6 was released, there was the following comment from Scott:


"I am particularly excited about this release. One of the new features - the ability to check entity confirmation status in your main log while contesting - is something I've dreamt about for a long time! I'm also very excited about the ability to use rig interface and send CW from multiple programs simultaneously!"


Does this mean I can use the rig interface and CW form in ACLog at the same time? They both try to use the same com port so I'm thinking Scott's comment meant something else.


If Rig Interface and CW Form cannot be used simultaneously in ACLog, would a program that creates virtual com ports be the solution?
