Syncing my Amateur Contact Log with my Laptop

Bob W8RBD <dushkoff@...>
 

Just getting into the Amateur Contact Log program, and love it - have this on my desktop computer at home. I have FlexRadio so sometimes I run "remote" outside with my laptop computer.
In addition to putting the Amateur Contact Log software on my laptop, is there a way I can sync my present log with the laptop, and when I make contacts with my laptop and I log them, can they sync with the desktop?

Thanks for reply,

73 de Bob W8RBD

in the program it has all counties spelled out instead of 4 digit abbreviations
Rules say you must log the 4 digits?

Should you just put in the 4 digits and it will show in log? or if you tab county will it
change to 4 digits in your log submission?

Thanks in advance

Hi Joe.  I’ve handled the password situation in two different ways.  Since I’ve changed computers 2 or 3 times since I’ve started using ACLog I have a hard copy printed of the original email Kimberly sent when I purchased the suite.  After misplacing that email a couple of times I figured I’m going to fix this problem once and for all.  I took the original email and scanned it into a PDF file and it resides in my documents folder with the name “N3FJP-Passwords”.  This file gets backed up every weekend using SyncToy.

 

Typically the only time I need to refer to this document is when I decide to play in a contest I’ve never entered before.  Other than that the various loggers in the suite are pretty good about remembering their various passwords.

 

Good luck.

 

73,

 

Pat – KZ5J

does anyone  have a best practice for the passwords 
Every time I load a contest I have to hunt for the email with passwords.   No way to go to a universal password is there ?

Guess you can do that also, wherever you save your contacts.

I used to have the same problem. I have a folder in my email for N3FJP so what i did was make a subfolder that I call KEYS. I put Scott and Kims email with the keys/passwords in that subfolder. also in that folder are direct correspondence I might have with Scott and Kim

Hi Joe,

Thanks for your e-mail.  You only need to enter the passwords once.  The only time you should have to reference the password list after that is when to move to a new PC, so keep them around for that eventuality, but otherwise, you should not regularly need to refer to the list.

If you ever do lose your password list, you can e-mail us direct and Kimberly will send you another list.

Enjoy!

Re: Passwords

Joe your passwords are supposed to be stored in the folders that were installed for each contest. Look in your Documents folder there should be a folder named Affirmatech, then inside the N3FJP folder should be folders of each contest. I believe the password for each one should be where they belong. if they are not stored there then your program missed something.

When you click on a station in WSJT-X, it will send data to JTAlert.

In operation when you get the popup after the RR73 is sent. When you click log it will log to the

Good point Jim, I guess one way to look at it is that we should have access to many Elmer’s in today’s technical world. And, it gives those with knowledge the opportunity to become an Elmer to those of us who struggle with certain issues.
Keep up the good work.
