Tom,

You may want to look here. This should allow WSJT-X to do most of the dupe checking.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your e-mail.  All non phone and CW (digital modes) fall under the DIG mode selection.  Once you work a station on one digital mode, you can't work them again on another one.


6.3. Field Day contacts are allowed using Phone, CW and Digital (non-CW) modes. Stations can be worked once per band per mode under this rule. 

Enjoy!

Hi Scott and all...

I'm primed and ready for FD 2020.  I am planning to use FT8 with WSJT-X, JTAlert and N3FJP FD Logger. It's all setup, tested and ready to roll.  I used the same setup (except for the log) fr the June VHF Contest and it was flawless!  Thanks Scott for the ease of operation.

With the rule changes for 2020, I expecting the bands on FT8 are going to be jammed from wall-to-wall!!  I was thinking of switching between FT4 and FT8 when things get too crazy on one or the other, So, I did a small test to make sure this is possible, to avoid surprises during the contest!  I hate those :)

  • I manually logged VE3ABC 1D/ONS on WSJT-X using FT8/20m as a test call and it logged in N3FJP as expected.
  • Then I switched WSJT-X to FT4, same band and tried to VE3ABC but the logger reported it as a dupe!?
I reread the rules for FD and it says you can work any station once per band/per mode.  So, are FT8 and FT4 considerred as the same mode (digital) for FD?  If so, that kinda adds a wrinkle to my plan.  Or am I missing a step?

Thanks for any input.....so you all in the pile-up!!

Re: How to only view DX stations?

Mike Olbrisch
 

Good morning Andrew.

 

After sleeping on it last night, the only other solution I could think of is this. 

 

 

With ALL records selected on the button (not last 50), then click on the COUNTRY COLUMN in the main form, and scroll through it.  They will be in alphabetical order, either ascending or descending order, click on the COUNTRY COLUMN to reverse the order.

 

After doing this, you can scroll through it and see what countries are there.  Depending on your personal set-up, confirmed and unconfirmed will be in whatever colors you picked.

 

I have about 10,000 QSOs in this log, and I’d say about 90% of it was USA.  There were only 6 countries below USA, Venezuela, Vietnam, Wales, Western Sahara, Willis IS and Zambia.

 

Then you are done, click on the REC# COLUMN to reset it back to normal.

 

 

I hope this helps you.  I cannot think of anything else.  Perhaps Scott will jump in with more knowledge than I possess.

 

Gotta run, we’re departing on another Great Adventure this morning.   The JEEP is almost packed.  From El Paso, into NM, across the Western Gila Wilderness, passing the eastern edge of the Mogollon Rim in AZ, destination tonight Flagstaff, tomorrow Lake Havasu, Thursday Sedona, and back home Friday.  We will be spec-ing and ordering our retirement trailer.  Only 3 dealers in the USA.

Re: Port Problems with JT Alert and Field day logger

Scott Davis
 

Hi Larry,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.

To clear the API error, first make sure no other programs, such as AC Log, are running and already using that port.  Then click Settings > Rig Interface and be sure the N3FJP API option is not selected.  Then click Settings > Transmit  > CW and again, make sure the N3FJP API option is not selected.

To clear the JTAlert log verification error, use the Remote Network PC option detailed here:

Re: How to only view DX stations?

Not quite certain just what you are asking – but if it is total countries you have worked,  click AWARDS à STATES COUNTIES COUNTRIES.  Add any filters in the boxes provided, like a single band or QRP etc, and click CALCULATE.

If that isn’t what you are asking, then please try again.

The way I prefer to “View countries other than mine” is on vacation, but somehow I’m thinking that wasn’t what you were asking for 😊.

Thank you, Scott. I have done as suggested and all of my entries where VE3QN is shown as Operator now show "L" in the "S Conf By" column. There are, however, a few hundred entries under my previous callsign VE3RBE (at this location) and for these the "S Conf By" column is blank. When I attempt to upload to LoTW using the "All Contacts Not Uploaded" option I get a notice highlighting the VE3RBE entries. (See attached screenshot). I'm not sure what to do here. All the VE3RBE log entries were uploaded to LoTW several years ago and I subsequently let the callsign certificate for VE3RBE lapse. Now I am not sure what will happen if I select either of the options offered. I'm not sure I want to reload all the VE3RBE options and it's possible they won't be accepted since the callsign certificate is no longer valid. I don't want them uploaded as entries from VE3QN. What I do want is for them to be treated as having been uploaded such that when I click on the "All Contacts ..." button N3FJP only offers my new contacts. I'd be grateful for your advice.

Sorry if I missed this but how long after one logs a QSO in ACLog does the software upload to LOTW and ACLog? I have had a couple of instances of logging the wrong call or QSO info, and quickly going back to delete or edit the QSO. I have never been sure as to whether I have beaten the upload. I poked around and do not see that this is configurable. One can of course Enable Realtime Upload (and I have) but does that mean immediately after logging a QSO or is there some slight delay?

Re: Rig Control Failure FD Mode with WSJT-X, N3FJP and JTAlert

So I installed flrig v 1.3.50. I fire it up and tell the applications to use flrig for radio type. The problem now is, flrig won't run longer than about 2 minutes before it spontaneously shuts down. No clue, no error, just poof, it's gone. I can't keep it running long enough to see if the other apps are actually working through it.

Getting ready for Field Day. I have the latest versions of WSJT-X

My understanding is to start N3FJP > WSJT-X > JTAlert in that order. I
have followed the various tutorials and instructions for setting these
up. When I start WSJT-X, I get a "Rig Control Error" box asking to set
up the rig parameters (IC-7300). These are all correct. Running WSJT-X
by itself is no problem. Only when N3FJP is running do I have an issue.
I am obviously missing something. Any suggestions as to what?
