Subject: [N3FJP_Software_Users] CWT Practice et al -- a little off topic.
 

Hi All,
 
I happened to be in the eHam CW forum and I came across these CW practice sets.  All can be done from the website I'm providing a link to so no need to download programs.  One of the segments is for practicing the CWT contest.  The speed is adjustable from 15 to 40 wpm.  These maybe of value to some members and I like the fact it's teaching to copy CW in one's head and not by typing the answers into the computer or with pad and paper.
 
Here's the link:

OK Hal. Been many years since I tried to work with MMTTY.  But AA5AU has some great instrunctions on getting started in RTTY and how to set up and use MMTTY. You might find something not set properly. I found his page as a link off the MMTTY page.

Re: Please Test History File Implementation!

Scott Davis
 


Hi Dave,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Yes, the idea is to use one history file in the shared folder that all applicable contesting programs can access (not AC Log), so that the data from any one contest is added to the resource and available in another contesting program, even if it is the first time the user is using a history file for that following event.

That said, users can optionally set the software to use a different file name and or location from the history file form, if they want a particular program to use a different file.  

If you haven't already tried it, please download this beta and check it out:

http://n3fjp.com/programs/CWOPSCWTBETA.exe

I would love to see users coordinate and maintain history files.  I'm not planning on adding data users compile to my web site, but users can make the combined files available on their personal web pages, or simply use the files section of our e-mail group to upload files and make them available to everyone on the group:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/N3FJP_Software_Users/files

Users are welcome and encouraged to announce to the Users group whenever they have created a new file.

Enjoy!

Scott,

As Dave K5IX stated, the CWT Call History File for N1MM from the CW Ops closed site is what I sent you a while back when we were discussing Call Histories. Is it your intention to utilize a single Call History file in the Shared directory for all of your Contest Programs? And as time goes on, each Contest Program will be populating data in the one Master File?

Has anybody stepped up to the plate to combine user's Call History File into an ACLog Master File that could possibly be stored on your website and be downloaded from there? If not, I'll volunteer to ***help with others*** get this process going. What I would propose is a depository on your server where folks can upload their Call History file after each contest. Even a "button" to automatically do this in the next revision of your Contest Programs would make it more likely that folks would actually take the time to upload the file. Then, with a TEAM of Excel gurus, we would merge each file into the ACLog Master File for use in all contest programs.

I think the "back-end" process of collection, merging and publication still needs to be thought through. If you'd like, I can start a seperate thread to discuss how best to implement the back-end processes.

I'm excited that you decided to allow auto-filling. One still has to copy the exchange because in Maryland, as you know, some contests require just MD and others MDC. That is where people are going to lose points if they don't listen to the whole exchange and verify what autofilled. Come to think of it, could you also add a "flag" to future versions of the Contest Programs where on the first receipt of a new call in that contest the "flag" is not set. Then if you work the same station on another band, the "flag" is set telling the operator that they have validated the exchange once before. Or do you think it is better to force the contestor to validate every exchange regardless of the number of times they worked the station?

Re: JT Alert and AC log error

Craig,

This has happened to me a couple of times:

When AClog has not been launched or when I have inadvertently has two sessions of AClog running.  In that case I just close one instance and it works fine.

Other than my two above errors, it has always worked.  I use Windows 7 Pro 64 here.

Best regards,

John,  WoGN

Hi all, Â
I am using JT alert and AC log.  Using it with Wsjt-X.

I have enabled API's on AC log and have selected AC log as the logging program on JT Alert. All things appear to be working ok from what I can tell.   After I make qso I click "Log QSO" on WSJT and it brings up the log qso feature.  I click that and then I am getting the above error message. Â

The weird thing is that about 50% of the time, the qso actually logs in AC log.  Any thoughts or suggestions

Hi Craig,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I know Laurie is on this group, but I don't know how closely he monitors it.  You might get a faster response if you post your question here:

https://au.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/HamApps/info

As an aside, I've made 40 JT65 contacts now and every one has transferred to AC Log from JTAlert automatically, just fine.

Re: Using the Timewave Navigator with ACLog

The one thing you forgot to mention is what digital software your using. I use FLDigi with the Signalink and all digital modes require the radio to be in USB not LSB. I don't have to offset the freq. Just point and click. Oh, and just upgraded to Windows 7. No Win 10 for me.

Currently to use RTTY I must "hear it" on the LSB and I must always move the xcvr up 1.4 KHz from the DX spotter frequency.

This is my question:  If I get a Timewave Navigator interface, will I be able to "click on" the DX spotter frequency and receive the RTTY signal on that frequency?

Thanks for any/all help you can give me.  If you need additional information in order to answer my question, I will, of course be more than happy to provide it up to the level of my technological competence (which has not won any international awards lately!).

Re: Please Test History File Implementation!

N3FJP CWT users:
 
I have loaded a large CWT call history file to the files section of the Yahoo groups space.  It was formatted from the latest CWT file history file provided for N1MM+ by VE2FK.  Group members should also have received a separate email with the link to get the file from Yahoo.
 
You can access this file at the URL:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/N3FJP_Software_Users/files/N3FJP_CWT_CallHistory_1621.txt
 
The converted file worked for me using the merge feature in the “Settings->History File...” form.

Thanks for the report.  Yes, properly formatted, the data from the file you referenced should load up fine.  Just make sure you format it exactly as the history file my software creates is formatted.  If you or someone else modifies the file for my software to use, by all means, please make it available on the group!

Scott,

There is a CWT Call History File formatted for N1MM+ out there, ready to go.  I tried to reformat it to import it into N3FJP, but I guess I'm not smart enough to make it work.  Your history file has many more fields--I suppose it's for future expansion. 

When I tried moving between csv to xls and back to csv formats, I keep getting weird ASCII characters instead of commas and such.  Maybe there's an easy way to make the translation?  It's just a .txt file but it's driving me nuts.

Fellow CWT users--anyone have the coding chops to do this?

I love your software!  I normally don't go for self-populating exchanges, but the CWTs are so fast and furious that I make an exception for that.  The call history feature will be a welcome update!

Thanks, and 73,
Dave K5IX
