Need an idea to solve issue

John AJ1R
 

I enjoy contests by making contacts and giving points to those participating in the contest.  I use the standard N3FJP log program to record my contacts and check if I have previously worked the station.

The problem I am having is the result of using Microsoft Magnifier which I use because of my poor eyesight, it makes the screen appear larger.  Larger than what will show on the physical screen.

When I enter a call sign in the data entry area and then press the tab key, the previous times I might have worked the station shows in the upper window area.

Unfortunately, because I am using "magnifier" you have to move the cursor upward in order to see any previous contacts in the upper part of the screen. Then you have to move it back down in order to continue with the login process.

It would be nice if the previous contacts showed up in the lower portion of the upper window. With the most recent contact at the bottom of the area That way they would be visible without having to move the screen to see them.

One solution would be if Scott could modify the app, so that your previous contacts showed in the lower portion of the upper area with most recent at bottom.

I am looking for any ideas on how to handle this issue.

Thanks for any ideas.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Correcting timestamp order in NY QSP Party log

I was running 2 contests at once over the weekend.  N3FJP for NYQP and N1MM for Worked all Germany contest.

Il ogged the call in theN1MM but I also forgot to log the call in N3FJP/NYQP.

Ilater  added the German call after I made about 10 more calls in the NYQP contest then correctedd the time with the edit function.
   
Is there any way to get the German call in the correct time sequence? I saw the reset counter function under the File function but I do not think that will do what I need to do.

I can correct the order manually by edit the CABRILLO file but I want to coreect it in the log file.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your e-mail.  No, there have been no changes whatsoever to the Flex API interface code (or any other problem reports), so something external to AC Log, specific to your system is at play.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] New Feature Idea for LoTW Last Upload Date for a QSO

Hi Scott,

Thanks for a great program. I know you get a lot of feature requests. Hope this isn't some kind of duplicate.

One issue when using List, QSOs with unconfirmed country/state is that many ops don't update LoTW for a LONG time. I don't use eQSL but I assume that's a similar issue.

I find myself having to note (I use one of the Other fields) that I need to wait and check LoTW Upload Date, or mark that someone doesn't do LoTW. I end up looking up the call multiple times to find out if I should initiate a request to confirm the QSO via email or by other means.

If there was a column on that list that included the Last LoTW Upload Date, or flag the row somehow that the op hasn't upload based on the QSO date, would be a big help.

Since you already have the LoTW data, perhaps it could be done if you think it worth while.

Thanks for considering

Hi Name/Call?
 
The current NYQP program is version 2.0.  ACLog is not designed to be a contest program.  This may be the cause of your issues.

Hi Marv,

Thanks for your e-mail.  WSJT is not exporting their ADIF header to ADIF spec, causing the first call sign to drop.  Please see this remedy here:

Re: NYQP logging problems

Scott Davis
 

Hi KC3KO,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you ran into trouble.  It sounds like you were trying to use Amateur Contact Log instead of the proper contest program, which in this case would have been the NY QSO Party contest software.  AC Log is a general logging program that was not designed with contesting in mind.  


http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q53

Please always be sure to use the proper contest log for each contest.  If you check this pre contest checklist before each contest, that will keep you on the right track going forward:

http://www.n3fjp.com/help/contestchecklist.html

You will find the NY QSO Party here:

Good afternoon Scott

Once again I am amazed at the functionality of the N3FJP software.
I wanted to export all the qso's made with one state to a spreadsheet.
Copy and paste in some programs messes with formatting.  When possible i prefer a .csv export. You somehow made it possible to search by state, copy to clipboard and paste into spreadshee with no hassle.   Easy!!!!!

Probably easier than a .csv file.

Scott,
 
Thanks for explaining about the History File function, which I have never used on any of your contest software.  I’ll use it from now on!
 
On my other question, I figured out an answer:  If I start a new contest with the current database file, then after the contest I export the new contest log as an ADIF and import the ADIF into ACLog, I will only import the QSOs logged in the new contest.  That’s because the logdata from any previous session of that contest stored in the current database file will have been erased.  Is this correct?

I use N3FJP contest logger programs and ACLog for my master log.
 
For a recurring contest such as CW Ops CWT, I have been choosing “New contest with a new database or file location.”  That way I can submit results just from that (weekly) contest and I can export an ADIF file to import into ACLog where I store all my QSO records.
 
However, I would like to set up the file so the program remembers each previously worked callsign and the associated exchange information (like SPC and member no.). 
 
If at the start of the contest I choose “New contest with the current database file,” would the program remember the callsigns and exchange information logged in previous contest sessions? 
 
If I choose this option, when I import the contest QSOs into ACLog, would I get just the QSO records from the latest contest session, or would I also get a dump of all the QSOs from previous sessions of the contest (such as the weekly CW Ops CWT)?
 
Any guidance would be appreciated!

In my main ACLog window, if I scroll to the right, there are columns labelled "# R" and # S" (3rd and 4th from the extreme right). These are the serial numbers received and sent from the contest log.

Hope this helps.

I just checked ADIFMaster and it looks like you can import a CSV file. You should then be able to massage it and export an ADIF. Never tried it, but looks like it might work.
