Hi Michael,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  I just double checked and the Field Day software is accepting WD5JTZ fine here.

It sounds like your Internet protection software is clamping down on the Field Day software.  Giving the Field Day software the proper permissions in your protection software will correct that.

Enjoy!

I recently picked up 3 programs logs.  I like them.  WFD and LA QSO party.  no issues. but on the ARRL field day, I have two strange messages pop up.  the first, 1) says it appears I didn't enter a valid call sign in the operator field.  I entered my call, just don't understand why it would say that. 

The second, says.... Access to the path /c/users/ mike/my documents/ afiirmatech, etc. et is denied. and below it is says   error saving setting file...C, users....etc. etch. 

I am sure over time I may figure it out.....just trying to avoid...over time :)    Thanks


Re: COUNTRIES LIST

I once took a ferry ride from Calabria (Southern Italy) to Sicily.  I doubt the trip was longer than an hour.  Sicily likely doesn't meet the distance rule for an island whereas Sardinia does.

Yes,  I'm aware that Sicily does count as a country for non-ARRL awards and in some contests such as Worked All Europe.

Re: Bad record somewhere in my log!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your follow up.  One of the records doesn't have an L in the Sent Confirmed by Field.  You maybe be able to click on the column header to sort like records together and hopefully find the missing record.  Adding an L to that record will do the trick.

Re: Satellites Names and eQSL

Hi Alan,

Thanks for your follow up.  Sorry, while I do include Prop Mode, I don't also have a dedicated Sat Mode field in AC Log, so that isn't something I can add directly.  Folks that have customized an Other field with the Sat Mode ADIF tag can just export in ADIF and upload to eQSL the regular way.

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.

But then?
If next marked field, in the dialogue Scott mentions, is Country, what should happen? I see no difference, or should just one field below be filled at a time?

Alt-S - does it do a search on only those fields that are filled among the fields checked in the "List Matches for These Fields with Tab" dialogue?

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.

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.

Sardinia, which is another Italian island, does count as a DXCC Entity.  It's prefix is IS0.

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

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.

Hi. Since I started POTA activations I have made a separate Log for each location. I do not want to mix these logs with my home AClog since the location of the station (POTA location) is different for each log and is not my home station.  I would also like to check if I have a specific call sign in any of my POTA logs. That is easy except I need to bring up every POTA log and check each one. Has anyone found a way to have just one complete POTA log? I would think I could make a log called complete POTA and import each of my separate logs into that complete log. That seems to work except for one problem. When I entered the paper logs into each separate N3FJP POTA it took the QRZ address information and put that info into the comments area. Now it seems that when I export and fill in the field " add optional comment for ever contact" the program will not add the comment (Like K-5239) if the comment field already has an address in it.

From this point on I assume I need to not have QRZ fill in the address info in order to create a complete POTA log but do I need to go back and delete the comments in all of my current logs to import them with the correct POTA number?

Any suggestions?

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

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.

Bad record somewhere in my log!

I have a bad record somewhere in my log.  LOTW says I have a duplicate record every time I try to upload but can't figure out how to find it.  Any ideas??
