Hi Buzz,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm not sure why you are receiving that error.  Please try clicking Settings > History File > More and at the bottom, reset the path to Shared Default.

Hopefully that will do the trick.

Enjoy!

When I close my Field Day Log I get a window that reads:

This error only occurs when closing the AC Field Day Logger, not any other contest logger. I recently had an HDD failure and had an SSD installed and Windows 10 reloaded. The Field Day Logger install went fine - no error messages.

Any suggestions on how to get the Field Day Logger pointed in the right direction?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your e-mail.  That error message is being returned from ARRL's TQSL software, not AC Log.  Correcting your station location for the proper grid square in TQSL will remedy that.

Enjoy!

It should propagate through to the MY_GRIDSQUARE field in an ADIF export. What I sometimes do is make a new blank log file and name it JUNK, TEST, or something obvious like that to test things like this out.

Re: POTA and Grid Locations #pota #lotw

OK - so I just checked. I have two other fields left open still.

What are 6 other fiends taken up with?

Current Location: Often enough the station I am working is in a SPTA/POTA
location too.
SOTARef: The summit I am talking to.
MY_SOTA_Ref: The summit I am on.
SMIRK #: Smirk activity had fallen off for a while, but seems to be picking
up with a new club managing it.
My_Sig_Info: The POTA park I am activating.
Sig_Info: The POTA park I am talking to

Best I can tell, to maintain accuracy and continuity, I need three more
pieces of data.

MY_STATE. MY_COUNTY. MY_GRID.

I do not wish to give up one of the OTHER fields I have currently in use.
So that leaves me in need of one more.

Jim..... what do you have to say? Does changing My Grid in the setup take
care of the grid?

The only one you really need for POTA other than the two SIG fields would be
MY_STATE. Which I believe the new POTA uploader can also pick up. OPERATOR
and STATION_CALLSIGN, while not related to location except in the case of
operating from another DXCC using your own call where that is permitted, are
also available in ACLog.

Re: POTA and Grid Locations #pota #lotw

Grid and County? I know you can enter a grid in the SETUP that can be made
available. But I don't know how that would react to an automatic upload.

What I do know is that choosing the location file for an upload is only an
extra two clicks, and it over-rides any errors the other stuff may contain.

Could you imagine me uploading my logs from Netherlands, Belgium,
Luxembourg, France and Germany, and using the location file confirming that
contact from El Paso County in Texas, grid DM61rt? The 6m contacts I made
over there would love it I'll bet!

Honestly, I have over 100 locations in LoTW. When I activate a new location
(like 4 new countries this last visit to Germany), it literally takes less
than a minute to add a new location. I just sit back and grin at the people
who say it is too much. Life can get challenging in many ways I guess.

In WSJT-X When the pop up box opens to ask you to log the contact you can input the TX power and it will repeat that setting until you change it.

Re: POTA Self-Uploading

THE POTA self uploader is quite automated if your format the log and the file name correctly. It is probably the best online upload system I have ever seen, and I have been beta testing it for the past couple of weeks. Begging Scott's indulgence, here is the movie:

IMO it wouldn't be that helpful to upload directly from ACLog.

Re: POTA Self-Uploading

Scott Davis
 

Hi Brent,

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.  That functionality requires an API from the receiving host (for example LoTW, eQSL and QRZ each have an API protocol to handle that).  As you may know, we have most recently added direct upload functionality to QRZ in AC Log, using their API, which is going well in beta testing now.  When the POTA folks get that far along with their API to be able to handle uploads directly from the logging software, we will certainly give it a look.

Enjoy!
