Sorry, you will need this too:

int FreqStart = 16;  //In case there is no colon


                    //See if there is a colon
                    int index = t.IndexOf(":");

                    if (index > -1 && index < 20)
                        FreqStart = index + 1;

Hi Making,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Sorry, I would love to help, but I have no idea.  The only applicable setting in the N3FJP software is to enable the API.  The rest is handled by JTAlert.  You will find the JTAlert support group here:

Re: wrong band

Tom Ellis
 

Does this happen after you log the contact or just when JTalert first enters the call.

I noticed that when JTalert just enters the call, before it logs the contact the band might show a different band. Especially if I just changed bands.

However, when I finished the QSO and logged it, it would show the correct band.

 

I hope this helps.

Field Day Log 6.3 is Now Available for New 2020 FD Rule Changes!

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

In case you haven't heard, Field Day 2020 is now a whole new ballgame!


Field Day Log 6.3 is Now Available!

Yesterday, ARRL announced a special waiver for Field Day 2020:

1)      For Field Day 2020 only, Class D stations may work all other Field Day stations, including other Class D stations, for points.
Field Day rule 4.6 defines Class D stations as “Home stations,” including stations operating from permanent or licensed station locations using commercial power. Class D stations ordinarily may only count contacts made with Class A, B, C, E, and F Field Day stations, but the temporary rule waiver for 2020 allows Class D stations to count contacts with other Class D stations for QSO credit.
2)      In addition, for 2020 only, an aggregate club score will be published, which will be the sum of all individual entries indicating a specific club (similar to the aggregate score totals used in ARRL affiliated club competitions).
Ordinarily, club names are only published in the results for Class A and Class F entries, but the temporary rule waiver for 2020 allows participants from any Class to optionally include a single club name with their submitted results following Field Day.
The full text of ARRL's announcement, with additional details is here:


I have updated the Field Day software to accommodate point scoring for Delta station to Delta station QSOs.  If you plan to operate in a category other than Delta, version 6.2 is fine, but if you will be operating in the Delta class, please upgrade to version 6.3.  You will find version 6.3 here:


And the upgrade steps here:


As always, upgrades are free to registered users!


Field Day and Clubs!

I am very excited about ARRL's 2020 modification!  While, Lord willing, we will be able to share Field Day together at the same location in 2021, the opportunity for clubs to experience a contest weekend together virtually this time will be a new, fun and exciting experience for many!

Lots of clubs, who are passionate about Field Day, haven't yet experienced the joys of participating as a club in the many other great contests we have to enjoy annually.  The same techniques that clubs will use this Field Day, in the social distancing environment to stay together while apart, can be applied to ARRL November Sweepstakes, ARRL International DX, CW World Wide DX and many other contests.  

Sharing contest weekends together virtually, as we each operate from home with lots of fun, support and camaraderie, has taken Amateur Radio joy and excitement to a whole new level for our club!   Regularly operating together virtually to turn in combined club scores has thoroughly invigorated our group!  I'm very glad that many of you will be able to experience it for Field Day 2020!

Last time I wrote in more detail how our club shares contest weekends together using tools like:

- The Virtual Clubhouse text chat room we set up on the free Discord App:  http://www.nemarc.org/clubhouse.html
-  My free Club Score Processor, so you can see how your club is doing individually and in total in real time:  http://www.n3fjp.com/clubscore.html
-  And I should have mentioned Zoom, which is new to us in the last few months, but is an awesome tool for both impromptu and scheduled virtual gatherings:  https://www.zoom.us/

For lots more details, please see the How can our group enjoy Field Day together virtually, while staying apart? section here:  http://n3fjp.com/news/news2020-05-06.html

And if you aren't currently participating with a club, find one or start one!


Enjoy Field Day gang, and see how your club fairs in total compared to our Northeast Maryland Amateur Radio Contest Society!  We are planning to bring it Field Day weekend!  :)

I'm looking forward to working you!


And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...    


Package Upgrade Information...   

If you have registered one or more individual programs and would like to upgrade to N3FJP's Software Package for full use of all our Amateur Radio software, we would be glad to apply the amount that you have registered so far as a credit towards that purchase. Please send us an e-mail directly and we'll let you know your balance.   

N3FJP's Software Package includes more than one hundred programs for contesting, net management and general logging Amateur Radio applications. In addition to full use of all these programs, registered package customers are also entitled to receive free passwords for any new software that we add to the package and free upgrades to existing programs. There are no annual / maintenance costs of any kind.  Simply register once and you are set with N3FJP Software for life!  You'll find all the details on the Register Now page here: 



Donations are Gratefully Accepted! 

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly and I are very grateful...  

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"   

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:  


or send your contribution by mail, payable to Affirmatech Inc., to:

Have them operate and use their individual call signs.

Each uploads their own log and puts the clubs name in the blank  i.e. “Gary’s Railroad”

The scoring will pull together the total score of all “Gary’s Railroad” scores and score as a club, but also each individual will be scored separately.

Our club uses N3FJP software for Field Day, and the club is a registered user. (I am a registered user too).

 

Members were asking about using the club’s license for their efforts from home for the aggregate score as we are not doing a traditional Field Day this year.

The coding changes were minimal, so I don't expect any problems, but I will be very grateful if you would give it a quick look this evening and let me know that it works as expected logging Delta stations (assuming you have entered your class as D in set up):
