Ron,

Sounds like it might be RF. Have you tried using lower power? I know that I get all kinds of wierd things when I run rtty at more than about 40 watts on 15 meters.

Thank you Steve. This is not a rule that I am not accustomed to for in-state operation, and I don't like it either. But the rules are the rules.

Thanks again and good luck,

Joe,

From the rules page:

"MULTIPLIERS:
A. California Stations (Maximum of 58 Multipliers)
Count U.S. states (50) and Canadian areas (8): MR, QC, ON, MB, SK, AB, BC and NT where:
  • MR = Maritime provinces plus Newfoundland and Labrador (NB, NL, NS, PE)
  • NT = Northern Territories (NT, NU, YT)

Note: Although the “CA” abbreviation is not used as a multiplier in this contest, the first valid CA county logged will count as the multiplier for California.  California stations must log all CA contacts with their 4-letter county abbreviation; everything else as two characters, including "DX" for all stations outside of the U.S. and Canada."

If I am reading this correctly, it looks like CA stations only count for QSO points for in-state stations, so the calculation is correct.

As I send this, I have contacts in 4 states and 6 counties and 10 contacts. My score shows as 80 (20 QSO points X 4 states). Shouldn't it read 200 (20 QSO points X 10 states and counties)?

Just wondering.

Issues with Editing Fields Displayed, etc..

James Goff
 

I am pleased to report with Thanks to Forum users, I have been able to correct the problem. The main form file was, apparently, corrupted...my first clue should have been its displaced "Comments" field location-- askew in the middle of the entry form.

After exporting the ADIF data and reloading ACLog, the form look as it should;  importing ADIF data brought all previous QSOs back, perfectly.

Thanks to all,

As I understand it, I would just instruct the stations to simply log me three separate times with each county (unless their SW can log it in one entry).

Tim;

How do we know you are in 3 counties in one transmission without you doing a “laundry list” in each transmission?  This question really belongs on a different thread than Scott’s, but actually presents some logging problems with us out-of-staters. How can you be in three counties at once?

Hi Catherine,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Given the complexity of the scoring for this contest, lack of similar template to build from and very late announcement notice, I'm not going to be able to support it this year.  The steering committee also indicated that they may make adjustments to the scoring after reviewing the first year.  


http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q123

I'm sorry that I didn't have the answer you were looking for this time, but depending on how the event progresses in the next year or two, I am definitely keeping a close eye for possible future inclusion.

Enjoy!

Good day all,

Thus is Catherine AC4YL.  I’m very much looking forward to participating in the portable operations  challenge this weekend.  The exchange is callsign, station class (Q or P), serial number, and 4 character grid square.  Callsigns, frequency, date snd time in UTC, and power must also be recorded.

I’d like to use N3FJP for logging.  I’m guessing the only log to use would be AC log?  I was just wondering if there were any plans to create a log for this event with the exchange boxes without score calculations (cause their scoring is a bit of a convoluted mess)?  I love the contest logs as they make keeping up with the exchanges much easier as that’s the only info on the screen.

Hey Scott,

Actually, Jim suggested concatenating the commands, and I couldn't get it to work. And just now, I tried it again and it's flying! Pressing one F key builds the exchange in the memory slot, and then sends that slot off to the radio's keyer. Not sure what changed (maybe baud rate? cpu load? who knows). Bottom line: we have a winner! 

This scheme will probably work for quite a few Yaesu rigs (also FT-991, FT-2000, FT-3000, since they have the same CAT command set).

I would like to be able to store three types of frequencies for easy recall.
1 - Temporary frequencies of recently heard stations that I may call
2 - Frequencies of nets that I regularly check into
3 - Frequencies like start of SSB segments for various  bands like fpr 40,20,15 meters

I can use the 5/10 temporary memories for ether #1 or #2
The standard memories could be used for #2 and #3.
However, recall access to standard memories is difficult because of the small size of the knob.
Especially for me due to limited ability to turn it due to physical limitations of my dominate hand.
Due to diabetes the fingers on it have been "shortened".

For example a second set of temporary  memories if available would really help.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
