Ed,

When you click on the Date / Time field header highlighted in this picture, it will reorder the contacts by date/time.

Re: Problem with Logging program, followup.

Scott Davis
 

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  I am assuming your data is not loading following those errors.

First, try clicking File > New > New Database and then see if you can enter a contact.

If that doesn't correct the problem, it sounds like there is either a problem with the Access support files on your PC, or more likely, your security settings / security protection software are preventing AC Log from opening /creating your log file.  This FAQ was written with Field Day in mind as the security errors are more common in network setups, but will likely get you going:



I hope that this helps.

Enjoy!

Hello everyone,
Every time I open the logging program, a window pops up that says something like ' Can't execute 'GetData' and  after I close that one, another pops up that says 'Can't opeb table(0)'.  The actual msg might be slightly different, that's close.
I have subscribed to QRZ XML service.  
In conclusion, it's probably my fault.  Everything else is.
Thank you for any assistance you might provide.

Contact Logger + HDSDR on ICOM 7300: Issues

Chuck Chamblee, W4LAC
 

I am trying to use HDSDR (OmniRig for CAT control), and Contact Logger simultaneously on my IC-7300. I'm using a virtual serial port splitter (Fabulatech Serial Port Splitter) to split my physical serial port for the IC-7300 via USB, COM10, into two virtual ports (COM1 and COM2). If I run ONLY HDSDR, on COM1 without running Contact Logger then HDSDR works fine, and will control the IC-7300's frequency as it should. Or, if I run Contact Logger by itself, on COM2, without HDSDR running, then Contact Logger polls the 7300 properly and follows the 7300's frequency and mode. However, if I try to run them simultaneously, then Contact Logger cannot poll the 7300. It gets no response from the 7300. HDSDR continues to work properly, and can control the 7300 via CAT functions. If I shut down HDSDR, then Contact Logger begins to poll the 7300 properly.  If I switch rigs, and go to my Kenwood TS-590SG, using it's physical COM16 split into COM3 and COM4 virtual ports, with HDSDR on COM3 and Contact Logger on COM4, they both work properly, together.  What is it about the IC-7300's USB serial port that won't allow two apps to talk to the radio?  Any workarounds or solutions?

I see the spots show up on the telnet window, but they do not show on the main form.
When they show on the telnet screen, they have already gone through the telnet filtering.
So why don't they transfer to the main form???

Everything shows up as being sent.  The message I get when trying an upload to LOTW is:

LOTW.adi created with 1 QSO.

Another box comes up and says:

The log contains 1 QSO which appears to have already been signed for upload to LOTW, and no new QSO's.  This box allows cancel or resubmit.

I have tried allowing it to resend the "duplicate" but it always comes up with the same message again if I try.  This has been going on for a couple weeks.

All the QSO's in the log file have Y in the sent column so can't find it that way!!

Thanks for the help.

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!

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.

Re: COUNTRIES LIST

Christopher Scibelli
 

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.
