Hi Bob.  Try this:
 
1.  Enter call in call field.
 
2.  Hit “Tab”.
 
3.  All of the entered calls will be listed.
 
4.  Highlight first call in list.
 
5.  Hit “Shift” and highlight last call in list.
 
6.  A “Delete” box will pop up.
 
7.  Make double sure that you really want to delete all the calls in the list.  (IMPORTANT)
 
8.  Hit “Delete”.

My call is in my log over 25 times. Is there a way to bulk delete them.

Use of Function Keys to send Code

George
 


 

I spent hours trying to get the function keys to work before the GQP this past weekend.  I wanted everything to be set up before the weekend.  I tried everything without success.  Yesterday I discovered that the function keys don't work unless the logging program has been started either by clicking for it to start or by entering the first call sign!  What a dumb thing on my part!

I now have my IC7300 connected to my laptop with two USB cables, N3FJP is loaded, and my paddle connected directly to the rig for fills.  Everything now works!!!!!  Just not in time for the contest! HI

Maybe a note could be added to the program to remind users that you have to "start" the program before the F keys will work!

You need to correct your location coordinates.
Your location is found under"Settings" / "Setup".
Make sure that your coordinates have the proper sign -- west longitude should be entered as a negative number, north latitude should be enterend as a positive number.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  There hasn't been any changes to the distance calculation for many revisions.  From the menu options click Settings > Setup and make sure your Lat and Long are entered properly in decimal format.  Long should be a positive value in 6.2.  More details on the bearing and distance are here:

Hi Chris,

On the Elecraft site under K3 manuals look for the Programmer's Reference Guide.  It has everything you need (and much more) to control your rig. 
 
To get started you might just go to page 25 and play with the Switch Macros.  That is where you will find the Noise Blanker macro I was testing on ACLog.  The K3 NB command is SWT33; so just add RI:SWT33; to a Command line in ACLog and you can toggle the NB. 

You can also stack commands like this one I also tested with: RI:SWT13;SWT13;FT1;UPB7;

Call it Split UP5.  It moves the freq from VFO A to VFO B, Enables VFO B as the transmit VFO thus changing to Split Mode, and sets the xmit freq Up 5.  So with one click the rig changes to split mode and up 5 on VFO B.

Re: ACLog controls rig's "Voice Memory"

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mitch,

Thanks for your follow up.  You can use the same commands regardless of mode now.  It's just that when you are in CW, the F key commands will only be sent to the rig if you have a keying option enabled (and, as you observed, you can enter any command you want).  That's because the CW F keys were designed around conventional keying and if not implemented, there was never a prior need to send them to the keying module section of code.  I understand that you intend to use the new option as a replacement to, rather than a supplement for conventional PC CW keying.  That's something I will have to code for in the future (and it will take some doing under the hood as each program will require modification, so that will be a while).

In the mean time, the easy solution is simply to enable a CW keying option and you will be all set.

Thanks again for your thoughts.

Enjoy!

OK, but that's unfortunate to not be able to use the same CAT commands regardless of mode.  In my example, turning the NB on/off, has nothing to do with a CW key interface line.

It would be nice to have an option in the setup to use one Pkey command list that worked on all modes.

Hi Mitch,


Thanks for the report.  Right now, for the control keys to work in CW mode, you do have to have a keying option set up on the CW form.

Scott, one more finding. 

The reason it works sometimes in CW mode is after changing from SSB to CW and I hit the Pkey quick enough before ACLog polls the radio and puts it in CW mode.  After ACLog is in CW mode, the Pkeys don't work.

Hi Scott,

I just downloaded the latest 6.2 version to try the rig control CAT commands for my K3. 

It works great in SSB to execute any of the rigs buttons including memories, NB, NR, Band UP, etc.  So for example it's really nice to toggle the Noise Blanker on/off from an Fkey.  Also with CAT commands the rig will also go in transmit mode and send messages from stored messages.  All works great. 

However, in CW mode they don't work correctly as in SSB.  I've added the same commands to the CW list as SSB Fkey list.  Most of the time nothing happens.  I've been testing this and sometimes it will work for one Fkey stroke and then not work again.  From the K3 if I go back and forth from SSB to CW, sometimes the Fkey will work once or a few times and then stop working again.  But most of the time the Fkeys don't work at all in CW mode. 

I've tried powering the K3 off and back on but the Pkey don't work in CW.  They always work in SSB. 

As an added test, I added the command in the SSB Fkey list to change bands.  It works always in SSB mode and once in a while when moving to CW, the FKey will change bands.  So in CW mode it still was reading the SSB command list.

I've changed the Transmit/Select Mode (to associate F keys...) but it seems to have no bearing on my testing of this issue.  

My setup does not include a CW keying interface cable.  I'm only using the single USB cable for radio interface.  I don't need/want a second interface cable for keying my rig and sending CW from ACLog.  I just want to issue commands to the radio and let it perform PTT if necessary as it now works so well in SSB.

So I don't know if there is a bug but it would be nice if regardless of mode the CAT commands worked the same.

Subject: [N3FJP_Software_Users] ACLog controls rig's "Voice Memory"

 
Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know about my experiences with "Rig voice playback", one of the newest features of ACLog.  

I finally got the DVS-6 voice recorder module installed into my Yaesu FTdx1200. This module has 6 audio recording slots for contest (or other) operation (it also requires the 'paddle-style' FH-2 keypad). I immediately recorded my callsign into memory 2 and verified it worked on the rig. 

Next, I looked at the CAT manual for the FTdx1200, and discovered the voice playback command  PB02;  (last digit 1-6 for the 6 memories). I entered the following string into the F2 slot of ACLog's 'Settings' - 'Transmit' - 'Phone Setup' screen: 
RI:PB02;
and saved it.

I fired up the rig in the SSB portion of the band, and pressed F2. Immediately and with no delay, my rig keyed right up and I saw my RF output jumping as my voice boomed from the monitor speaker. 

SMOOTH LIKE BUTTER!  

I recommend you make these recordings (1-6) match up with F1-F6 in ACLog; so, F1/Mem1 would typically be your CQ call (since only that one has auto-repeat). 

I have used ACLog's ability to play saved files, and I had used Audacity to help optimize my audio - but the easy re-recording and high-quality (Heil) rig microphone for the Yaesu makes for a simple, fast experience! If your rig can play pre-recorded voice calls, I recommend you try the new feature to see how you like it!

(Scott, I'd like to suggest the ability to 'label' the F-keys! )  

Once again, N3FJP/Affirmatech has provided more and more functionality that continues to make our experiences easier and smoother! THANKS!

We are planning a special event in the very near future that will have operators working from different locations.  We will not have a local LAN to connect us, but we will have internet access.  We're looking for a way to have shared access to the log as we do when we're all working from the same LAN.

My first thought was to try to map a drive letter to a Google Drive share.  But, not having much luck doing mapping it.  I wondered if anyone has attempted this.  If not, Scott, wondered if it might be possible to give ACL the URL of a cloud share instead of pointing it to a local windows share. 


Thanks for any input.
