Re: Satellites Names and eQSL

Alan Floyd
 

Thanks for that Scott. We are still missing some information though.

Satellite Modes in the Manual Log Entry dropdown

A = Uplink: 2m Downlink: 10m
AU = Uplink: 10m Downlink: 70cm
B = Uplink: 70cm Downlink: 2m
J = Uplink: 2m Downlink: 70cm
K = Uplink: 15m Downlink: 10m
L = Uplink: 23cm Downlink: 70cm
LU = Uplink: 23cm Downlink: 70cm
SX = Uplink: 13cm Downlink: 3cm
T = Uplink: 15m Downlink: 2m
UV = Uplink: 70cm Downlink: 2m
VU = Uplink: 2m Downlink: 70cm


In order to properly determine the uplink frequency band, the Satellite Mode (ADIF: SAT_MODE) should be provided. For instance, a Mode UV satellite QSO is done by transmitting in the 70cm band and receiving in the 2m band. The BAND information in your log (and in the uploaded ADIF record) should say "70cm". (Remember in ADIF crossband operation, the BAND is the transmission band, not the received band!) Don't confuse this with the communication MODE, which might be SSB or CW or FM, etc.

Tnx for your suggestions. I think I will keep my home log intact and load to LOTW through N3FJP as usual with my home location. I will then make a POTA complete log and put all my POTA contacts in it.  I experimented a bit and it is fairly easy to copy and paste the Park number and  Park name into the comment area just under the address. The search function in N3FJP works well to find any qso with the specific park number or name in the comment area. 

I agree with you about the location, especially the grid number for the parks. So far I have been able to do this by creating the adif file I need for that one park and uploading directly using the TQSL program and not going through N3FJP to upload. 

Tnx for your suggestions.

Re: COUNTRIES LIST

It (IT) comes from the Worked All Europe Multiplier List.  There are a small handful of deviations on this list that are not on the DXCC list.  CQWW is the most notable contest to also include it in the country multipliers (Along with DXCC).  The same applies to the IGx and IRx which are Italy on DXCC, but also separate multipliers on the Europe Multiplier List.

Just depends upon whose scorecard you are using.

Re: Consolidating my many N3FJP POTA logs into one complete POTA log

Jim Shorney
 

Use two of the ACL "other" fields as SIG_INFO and MY_SIG_INFO. This is a best practice for activator logging and will help you keep things straight. MY_SIG_INFO will be the park reference number that you activated and SIG_INFO will be for the reference number of any park-to-park contacts. These fields are recommended as a fallback for POTA crediting of park-to-park contacts in the case of multiple contacts with a rover activator which would otherwise be rejected as dupes. Both of these fields may be placed on the main entry form for easy access as described on Scott's most excellent FAQ page.

These fields are in the ADIF spec as Special Interest Group fields and are used by POTA and WWFF, and maybe other programs.

Re: Consolidating my many N3FJP POTA logs into one complete POTA log

POTA = SOTA – pretty much the same thing.

 

I keep two logs.  One log is all of my activities in Europe, that’s portable DL, HB9, HB0, OE, OK, everything Europe.  The other log is all my activities in the USA.  Home and portable, it doesn’t matter, one big happy log.  And I can pull up a call sign from any contact dating ack to 1990.  I am just very fastidious about making certain I only upload to LoTW with the proper location selected.  With a little fore-thought, this is easy to do.  Once you get the hang of it, there’s nothing to it.  I’d be happy to point you in the right direction should you decide to go with the one log.

 

Alternately, you can have more than one log fine as you know.  So make one log containing everything, and open it when you need a global search.

 

Good luck, whatever you decide to do.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Couple of questions

Greetings;

I’m using what seems to be the best software on the planet.  Thank you Scott.

 

Couple of observations I have noticed, especially durning contests.  Does not seem to occur when operating with ACL.

 

Last weekend during the ARRL DX, I noticed that I could set my filters for the desired BW, but would notice after a couple of transmissions they would change to a different filter setting.  I would reset to what I wanted, and happen to glance down again and they had changed. (i.e. Had Fil 1 set very tite, and Fil 2 about 500 kc wider,  often when operating Fil 1 I would happen to check screen and it was back on Fil 2).  Not a complaint, just an annoying issue that I would like to eliminate.

 

I am running an IC7300, with rig control, DX spotting, and RBN all open and working properly. Is this a rig control issue or an issue with the 7300?  I have never seen this problem posted.  I used both the option for mode switch (so that cw filters don’t reset), and also unchecked that box with no difference in operation.  I have not found any RFI in the shack, using linear p/s, and beaded usb cables.  Using standard option on Icom (Not option 2).  I do have my settings at 115200 baud, and 500ms frequency change which both seem to work well.  Windose 10.

 

Other unrelated comment.  Sponsors ask you to leave dupes in log.  I do so, to keep them happy, but found it can make a tremendous difference in your posted score in the program.  It gives you a misleading number.  I had far surpassed my goal only to find out I just barely made it when I removed the dupes to transfer to ACL.  What are others feelings on this?

TIA

Hi Dale,

Thanks for your e-mail.  My software does not send any filter commands, buy when you send the mode command, Icom filters reset.  With the Don't Send Mode Change option, that eliminates the filters resetting on both my 7610 and Pro II.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Couple of questions

Greetings;
I’m using what seems to be the best software on the planet.  Thank you Scott.
 
Couple of observations I have noticed, especially durning contests.  Does not seem to occur when operating with ACL.
 
Last weekend during the ARRL DX, I noticed that I could set my filters for the desired BW, but would notice after a couple of transmissions they would change to a different filter setting.  I would reset to what I wanted, and happen to glance down again and they had changed. (i.e. Had Fil 1 set very tite, and Fil 2 about 500 kc wider,  often when operating Fil 1 I would happen to check screen and it was back on Fil 2).  Not a complaint, just an annoying issue that I would like to eliminate.
 
I am running an IC7300, with rig control, DX spotting, and RBN all open and working properly. Is this a rig control issue or an issue with the 7300?  I have never seen this problem posted.  I used both the option for mode switch (so that cw filters don’t reset), and also unchecked that box with no difference in operation.  I have not found any RFI in the shack, using linear p/s, and beaded usb cables.  Using standard option on Icom (Not option 2).  I do have my settings at 115200 baud, and 500ms frequency change which both seem to work well.  Windose 10.
 
Other unrelated comment.  Sponsors ask you to leave dupes in log.  I do so, to keep them happy, but found it can make a tremendous difference in your posted score in the program.  It gives you a misleading number.  I had far surpassed my goal only to find out I just barely made it when I removed the dupes to transfer to ACL.  What are others feelings on this?
TIA
