Re: FT-920 CAT

Scott Davis
 

Hi Craig,

Actually I've had good reports from 920 users. This is the first problem that has come to light. I'll certainly check it out once things settle down here. E-mails are coming in faster than I can answer with Sweepstakes at hand. In the mean time, perhaps Dave's response will be a good remedy:

<<Scott,

Don't know anything about the FT-920. I use the FT-990.
Turn the split OFF on the rig. Simple as that. The split will not work well with CAT. The rig doesn't know what the heck you want to do, or with which VFO. Now, if you could tell us what magic input would be recognized by the rig to allow this, that's great; but I'm not suggesting we go there right now.

with VFO A active on the radio, no splits turned on, and no memory

This is more of a problem report than it is a feature request. In my
opinion, you are parsing the info that the rig returns, and not
looking at the right part of that long string that is returned. But,
I am no programmer, that's for sure.

I'll bet no other 920 users are having any success.

Re: Dupe feature

Scott Davis
 

Hi John,

Thanks for your e-mail.

Since ACLog is a general logging program I don't think that you would want to preclude logging the same station. I think most hams will log the same station when worked multiple times. In fact, it is fun to tell the station when you last worked them and some of the QSO details.

Of course you will know if you have worked the station before by both the label that appears in version 2.4 when you tab from the Call field and the listed items that appear if you have Call checked for List Matches for These Fields with Tab.

I have the feeling I'm not getting what you are driving at. If you give me more details of what you have in mind perhaps I can give you a better answer.

Kind of reminds me of my last visit to the doctor. I told him "Doc, when I
do 'this' it hurts."
He said "well, don't do 'that'."
He then charged me $105. and that was the end of it. ;o]

Thanks for the info I had tried most of the things that you

familiarized the program. So far it seems to be User friendly.

Re: Icom Interface setup question.

I've been using 2.4 with good results for quite some time. It took some playing, but the following settings work well for me (I'm running XP Pro on an IBM Thinkpad, pretty old version).
Comm Port: 1
Baud rate: 19.2 (Icom seems to set this as default)
Parity: none
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Connection power: DTR
Polling Rate: 500 ms
String to read freq: FE FE 66 EO 03 FD
String to read mode: FE FE 66 E0 04 FD

(The 66 is for my 746Pro: you would substitute the code for your 756.)

Good luck!

Icom Interface setup question.

n6xtus <red.dawg@...>
 

Hello All,
I'm trying out Aclog 2.4 demo everything work fine tell I got to rig
interfacing with IC-756Pro. I have the right serial port(#2) and
all. tried several Icom Hexadecimal including the one from the user
manual 58, but it's still not seeing the rig. I'm using XP Pro OS.

Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Two other corrections have been made and uploaded as of 6:30 PM 11/12/03 EST. If QSL Received had been checked as a result of a card but was not confirmed by LoTW the check was removed on download. That has been corrected. I have also widened the matching time window to 30 minutes.

If you already have 2.5 installed the latest .exe file can be downloaded by clicking on this link:

http://n3fjp.ky1v.com/ACLog.exe

Just replace the existing file in c:&#92;program files&#92;aclog 2.5 with the file that you download above.

I have also uploaded a new installation package with the same corrections. If you haven't installed the beta version of ACLog 2.5, you can download the installation files from:

http://n3fjp.ky1v.com/ACLOG25.exe

The installation package only needs to be downloaded if you haven't already installed version 2.5. If you have installed version 2.5, just download the .exe file from the first link.

The only other possible issue is the one digit zones, but no one has responded that they are having problems since the initial e-mail. I can't duplicate the problem here. Unless anything else comes to light I think 2.5 is getting close to completion!

Again, thanks so much and please keep your observations coming. This is VERY helpful!

Re: LoTW clarification

Hi Ed,

Good Question, in a nutshell it works like this:

- You request a download from LoTW.

- All the records requested from LoTW are displayed in the
list box at the lower part of the LoTW form.

- At the same time, your log records are reviewed and confirmed when the date/time/band criteria are met. Any additional fields such as county, grid etc, are also populated.

- If a record is encoutered that doesn't have a match, ACLog lets you know and asks whether you want to add records or not.

- If you choose No, additional records are not added.

- If you choose Yes they are. You can then close the LoTW form and the added records will be at the top of the main form list. You can review the records from the main form and delete any if you like.

Hi Scott, I have a question about the LoTW d/l process. I just did a request
for new contacts and got 5 responses. 4 were from yesterday and 1 was a new
one. In a response to Neil (copied below) you said that thru ACL, we could
choose the ones we wanted to add. When I got the list I could highlight the
records but I didn't notice any opptions appear to add/delette any of the
records. So, what am I missing or did I misunderstand Neil's question and
your response. I may very well be barking up the wrong tree.

As a side note, the fact that I got the 4 from yesterday is probably an LoTW
issue. Even when I got the info in ADIF format straight from them, there was
extra data. I'd just edit the ADIF file before importing into ACL.


Thanks, Ed

Hi Neil,

Thanks for your comments. Keep in mind that ACLog will let you know
if it has found additional QSO's in the LoTW download and gives you
the option of adding them. You have control over whether they are
added or not.

Re: ACLog 2.5 -- Beware of "Download All Data"

Sorry, I missed that post! I thought I was caught up on my reading
but I guess not. Thanks for addressing the issue and I'll take a look
at the new .exe.

Regards,
Jim

Hi Jim,

Did you download the fix that I posted this morning in response to your
earlier e-mail? I believe the deselection of QSL Received for QSO's
confirmed by
cards when downloading all from LoTW has been corrected.


ACLog 2.5 -- Beware of "Download All Data"

kb9dna
 

I mentioned this bug in passing before thinking it was just a minor
annoyance, but I've since realized that Download All Data has cleared
all of the QSL "R" columns for the hundreds of contacts that do not
have a LOTW match. I was scratching my head why I couldn't get my
awards to show any more than 12 states and 4 countries... well that's
why! I'd like a little more explanation on the relationship between
the four QSL columns. Furthermore, it may be useful optionally place
a "C" in all of the records that have QSL "R" when importing to AC Log
2.5.

Regards,
Jim
