Hey Everyone,
Here are a few questions.  I am sure they are based on my lack of understanding and I am hoping the answers to this email will make me wiser for the asking.

1.  When a new station comes onto the log it shows black while the others are green.  My answer is to think the one in black has not been reported to lotW and eqsl.  When it turns green, logs are up to date.

2.  I turned DX spots on and decided I did not like them and turned them off.  Settings > dxspotting.  Nothing is checked but they are still displaying.

3.  When a new station is a logging in waiting, the recent contacts list pops up and fills from 1 to a whole page full of the about to be logged with all stations details.  I never get to see the actual page that shows logged until after the fact.  (Note: I would like to be able to see the logged page all the time, any way to do this??

Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions Phil.  With all the other projects on my plate, I'm not planning to add color printing at this time.

Thanks again for your thoughts!

Enjoy!

That seems to work OK but I see that the "standard" wording of the comment on the last row of the label has not been saved and I would not want to have to enter this every time.  Can this be made to save as a boiler plate text please?
Also, Is it possible to configure the QSL label to have (say) a different colour for the callsign, another for the text and a third for the Standard message please?

Yes, I can see that as a possible work around but the major obstacle as
far as I can see so far is the inability for the program to be able to
print a batch of QSL labels for a single DX callsign.  As I said before,
I've been using Win-EQF for many years but it is no longer supported and
doesn't work well under Windows 10, which is why I'm looking for an
alternative.  However, as far as QSL management is concerned, this is
probably the most important feature of it.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your e-mail.   Please do the following:

-  Click Settings > Rig Interface and make sure N3FJP API isn't selected.
-  Click Setting > Transmit > CW and make sure N3FJP API isn't selected.
-  Click Settings > API and make sure the bottom check box isn't checked.

That will do the trick.

Re: DX Spotting Stops

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The two most common causes for what you describe are:

- You PC going to sleep.

-  An Intermittent Internet connection.

You can try enabling the Keep Alive function on the DX Spotting set up form, but with it failing as fast as you describe, you will likely have to remedy your connection to keep the DX Spotting active.

Enjoy!

I love the spotting feature of Scott's programs, but I must have some setting wrong and would appreciate it if someone could give me a clue where to look. I launch the spotting program and it works great and then it quits showing new spots. I have cleared both Scott's programs and port 30 to pass everything through the firewall. If I turn the Spotting program off and then back on it shows new spots, but then a few minutes later it quits updating.

Hi there

I am a potential new user and established QSL manager.  I have been
searching for an alternative to the Win-EQFlogging program that I have
been using for over 25 years but which is no lomnger supported and does
not work well under Windows 10.

I have downloaded and installed a trial version of AClog and at first
sight, it seems to meet my requirements but I am not sure if I can
import more than one ADI file.  I have something approaching 150
different log files for various DX callsigns that I need to be able to
import and manage independently.

Can this be achieved please?

I am planning on setting up a Separate Log under ACLog using WSIT-X/JTAlert combo to feed the Log. That way the Grid Code will get Logged without having to enter it. There is really NO Contest Logger for this one.

I was thinking of one account to deal with all your manager work. Of course you would be using a different log file for each call, which is what you would be doing anyway. But your home configuration under your main account would remain unchanged.

So far, it all looks good.

Is there a way of making my primary log (G3SWH) the default on opening
the program rather than have to select it each time please?

Hi there

I am a potential new user and established QSL manager.  I have been
searching for an alternative to the Win-EQFlogging program that I have
been using for over 25 years but which is no lomnger supported and does
not work well under Windows 10.

I have downloaded and installed a trial version of AClog and at first
sight, it seems to meet my requirements but I am not sure if I can
import more than one ADI file.  I have something approaching 150
different log files for various DX callsigns that I need to be able to
import and manage independently.

Can this be achieved please?

73 for now and TIA.

DX Spotting Stops

Mel - N7GCO - Cheney, WA
 

I love the spotting feature of Scott's programs, but I must have some setting wrong and would appreciate it if someone could give me a clue where to look. I launch the spotting program and it works great and then it quits showing new spots. I have cleared both Scott's programs and port 30 to pass everything through the firewall. If I turn the Spotting program off and then back on it shows new spots, but then a few minutes later it quits updating.


Which log do we use for the WW Digi DX Contest

Mel - N7GCO - Cheney, WA
 

I was wondering which N3FJP log to use for the World Wide Digi coming up August 29-30?

Thanks Scott

I'll take that as a "no" then. :-)  In my experience, defaulting to the last used log leads to far too many errors of new QSOs being entered in the wrong log, which is why I prefer a nominated default.

Also, in view of K7GA's and your comments about the inability of the program to print batches of QSL labels, I'm beginning to think that your program is not for me.  However, I will continue to evaluate it for the time being.
