Re: Auto Refresh of the LoTW User File? #aclog

Hi N7AY,

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.  I have given that thought myself and it certainly could be, but I don't know how robust the LoTW server is to be able to handle simultaneous file requests from every AC Log user at once.  That is my main hesitation, but we will give that some thought for the future.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Auto Refresh of the LoTW User File? #aclog

Can the refreshing of the LoTW Users file be automated, or is downloading it have to be a manual process?
Would be nice if ACLog could be told to automatically download it each week when the ARRL updates it, or, pop up a dialog box and ask the user if they want to download the latest version.
