Hi Scott,
I am, and am not now! That explains why I was unable to locate a file for the log...

Sounds good, I now understand. I manage a small net here, and am going to point all the NCS stations at the software, and wanted to understand it first! THANKS! What a cool piece of software it is...

Hi Dale,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  I just tried downloading the AC Log Call Data here.  The server is up and working fine.

Make sure Your Internet protection software isn't clamping down on the download.

Re: FD scoring question

Ken Gunther
 

Stephen,

    You are correct, contacts between class D stations do not count for score. I have suggested that class D stations call "CQC Field Day" instead of "CQ Field Day". The extra C stands for commercial power. If you are operating class D and hear a station calling CQC you just ignore them because the contact will be worth zero points.

I was in the FD contest log and noticed that if you will be a 1D station for FD and enter another Delta station you get a message that says “Delta stations do not earn QSO points for working other D stations” Since many stations will be operating D this year, will it not matter. I also have heard that scoring will not take place. That’s a rumor only?
Any input

There is now way in the cw interface to set up speed or stopbit  or parity. so if you don't want to use rig control you have no way of setting those items to set them and then .

Hi Mel,

 

Thanks for your e-mail.  I can't speak to the K3 specifically, but CW sending and rig interface are two independent functions in my software.  Typically, it is not necessary to enable rig interface to send CW.  You do have to have the software in CW mode though.

Here is my situation.

 

I plan on dong the CW WPX contest.

I will probably only work 40m

I have a K3 with the usb interface

I have all the parameters set correctly settings > transmit > cw > com 3 and dsr.

I will not be using  the rig interface because I am staying 40m cw and the exchange does not need to know about freq.

when I test using F9 nothing happens.

I go back to setting > rig interface > elecraft > com3 > 38400

I poll it works

I go back to setting >rig interface > none 

then I go back to the cw and it  works.

so it seems that there is not speed setting in the cw interface and you have to get rig interface to work first and then turn it off

remember I am only using one cable because I do not  need to use rig interface

 

Am I doing something wrong

Re: Using CW option

When using your software with a usb cable to the elecraft k3 with the k3iob interface the speed parity stopbits must be set. if you have a source better than me could you follow up with them. if rig control is not used first to set those parameters ahead of time it will not work.

Here is my situation.

I plan on dong the CW WPX contest.
I will probably only work 40m
I have a K3 with the usb interface
I have all the parameters set correctly settings > transmit > cw > com 3 and dsr.
I will not be using  the rig interface because I am staying 40m cw and the exchange does not need to know about freq.
when I test using F9 nothing happens.
I go back to setting > rig interface > elecraft > com3 > 38400
I poll it works
I go back to setting >rig interface > none 
then I go back to the cw and it  works.
so it seems that there is not speed setting in the cw interface and you have to get rig interface to work first and then turn it off
remember I am only using one cable because I do not  need to use rig interface

Am I doing something wrong

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your follow up.  My software only keys via your processor, taking RTS or DTR high or low, or using Winker.  Those are the only two keying options in my software.

There is now way in the cw interface to set up speed or stopbit  or parity. so if you don't want to use rig control you have no way of setting those items to set them and then .

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I can't speak to the K3 specifically, but CW sending and rig interface are two independent functions in my software.  Typically, it is not necessary to enable rig interface to send CW.  You do have to have the software in CW mode though.
