I had this problem a while ago.  What the problem was for me was the computer was going to sleep or hibernation mode.  Once I turned that off everything stayed connected.  Hope this helps.

Sorry that didn’t work for you Tom.  Maybe someone else has a suggestion.  All I can say is I had a similar problem as you described and it worked for me.  Good luck with your problem.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  There isn't anything within AC Log that would delete a portion of your log (aside from a user multi selecting multiple QSOs and then clicking Delete - not suggesting you have done that).

You can restore from your most recent backup as detailed here:



Enjoy!

You know, it very well could be my internet. We are out in the country and have no wired internet available. We have a microwave link, 8 mbps each way. It is slow sometimes with long latency. I'm giving that a high probability!

Thanks for the idea!

This happened to me when I had DSL and a local provider for Internet. The problem was with the provider. The Internet dropped out several times a day just for a few seconds. You wouldn't notice it for normal Internet use. But it was enough to kill the Telnet connection that served the DX cluster. So the problem may be your Internet connection. A call to your provider can check to see if you have any drop outs during the day. I now get my Internet from the cable company and hardly ever have that problem.

Hi tom,
 
It’s probably not ACLog that is hanging.  It’s probably the spotting cluster you are using.  Open up the DX spotting window (Cntrl-D) and disable/enable spotting.   Sometimes choosing a different telnet host will help.

Hey Tom.  I had that problem after I placed a new computer into service.  I forget now what I did to fix it but I’ll try to dig through my notes to see if I saved anything related to the issue.

 

Good luck.

Hi Rino,

Thanks for your follow up.  Yes, if you rename Other6 to n3fjp_spcnum, those values will populate that field on ADIF import.

Hi Scott, when I open the adif from the cwops contest log with notopad  I got this , I think it is a field tag,
 
< n3fjp_spcnum :4>1037      1037 is the cwops member number.
 
When I open the adif from my main log with Notepad I got the same field tag but also
 
< other 6 : 4 > 1037
<cwops :4> 1037
 
What I need is that when I transfer my contset log to my main log the number 1037 goes into my main log Under the cwops box ( other6)
 
If I copy the field tag <n3fjp_spcnum > Inside the other6 box will it work ?
 
I’ve tried different things but there is Something I do not do right.
 
Thank for your patience.

Hi Rino,
 
Thanks for your e-mail.  Yes, give the Other field title the exact ADIF tag by clicking Settings > Other Field Titles.
 
You can open the ADIF file in Notepad to see the field tag.

Hi Scott, when I use the CWops contest log their number is store in the ( state/pr/cnt # ) but when I transfer my ADIF to my main log I use other # 6 to store those numbers , is there a way to send those number from ( state/pr cnt #) box to the one I use in my main log. I can do it manually but I was wondering.
