Hi Ralph,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The UTC time is read directly from your OS.  No calculation from local time is required.

Enjoy!

Have looked through the Settings and cannot find how to set the UTC time, to accommodate Daylight/Standard time. Any help would be appreciated.

Great idea! That will certainly do until a feature is added to the software.

Like Jim/NU0C, I am always importing from my N1MM exports folder ... so I made a shortcut to that folder and put it in the ACLog folder that always opens on import.  A quick mouse operation and I'm in the folder I need to be!

Re: ACLog JTDX JTAlert w/ K3

Although I am using mostly different software, I can share ports using VSPE - Virtual Serial Port Emulator software from Eterlogic.  The 64-bit version is not free ($25) but works very well.  I think that is what you need.

Bruce,

Check out VSPE. I use this all the time to "port share". Works great on my systems. It allows 4 Apps to share the same COM port.

I've not experimented with port sharing software so I don't have any advice to add myself, but others may have some suggestions for you there.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] ACLog JTDX JTAlert w/ K3
Scott,
I have ACLog, running with JTDX, running with JTAlert, connected to a K3.  The K3 has the upgraded interface/internal soundcard, KIO3B/ KXV3B.
The KIO3B uses a single USB cable to connect the computer (through a virtual COM port, in in my case COM6) to the K3 for Rig Interface and Soundcard functions.  CW keying is done through a WKMini assigned to virtual COM7.
This all works great together, except if I have JTDX running too.  The rig interface functions conflicts with the two programs, JTDX and ACLog, running at the same time.  I get a COM6 conflict error message in ACLog, which I click OK and it allows me to use JTDX and JTAlert with no issues.  However, if I want to switch to CW, I have to close JTDX, JTAlert, ACLog and only restart ACLog, then I have to go into the WinKey set-up and open the WinKey, COM7.
This is cumbersome to say the least.  Is there a way to resolve these conflict issues with the Rig Interface functions and keep all the programs running at the same time?

The menu selection "Import ADIF ..." always goes to the ACLOG directory in Documents. It would be nice if the last directory used could be remembered, or even better if it was configured.

Re: Can ACLog be installed and operated from a thumbdrive?

Jim Shorney
 

With the size of USB sticks as big as they are these days you could put a Linux distro on a bootable stick and run ACLog in a Windows virtual machine under Linux.

I just configured ACL for WWFF-KFF but I also want to use the program for "normal" stuff. To do that I need more room on the screen.
I really don't need to see my last 50 contacts, is there a way to resize that portion of the screen?
Any help will be appreciated.

Re: shift-cntl-g

Scott Davis
 

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your follow up.  Details are in the CW setup text narrative on the CW setup form as follows:

To enable the Tab Sends Message (TSM) option, press Ctrl + Shift + G from the main form.  With TSM enabled, when you tab from the Call field, the F2 string will be sent.  When you press enter, the F3 string will be sent.

Enjoy!

Re: Operator field in AC Log

Jim Shorney
 

Per the ADIF spec, OPERATOR is "the logging operator's callsign", and further "if OWNER_CALLSIGN is absent, STATION_CALLSIGN shall be treated as both the logging station's callsign and the callsign of the owner of the station".

Hi all
I never really took notice of this until now. AC Log fills the operator field with my call sign but I’ve noticed one of the digital mode programs I recently started using fills the operator field with my name if importing the .adif files in to AC Log.

Is this just a personal preference thing or is there actually a right and wrong way, what must be in that operator field?
