1.)
a.) First, each record needs to have the park I am activating;

a.) It would be great if the F3FJP software would help us build (or import) a list of parks.
b.) Each time we activate a park, we may be at a different park somewhere in the world.

     Each park location has specific details (during a single park activation, this info is usually the same for each record):

Ernie, you're over-thinking it.  I've been using ACL since I started POTA in March, and have logged over 4,000 POTA contacts. My main screen looks a lot like yours:
ACL1.jpg

I capture the grid, the state, and the county of the park and include them with the log, and I'm in the minority.  I'm confident that this will provide the data that 99.99% of your contacts would ever want. Unless there's a new contest I've not heard about, nobody gives a darn what zip code, lat/lon, or city you are working from. 99% of your contacts are only interested in one thing: your park. The county hunters and grid hunters don't hang out on pota.us looking for contacts.

Scott gives us eight custom fields to capture what we want. You need two for the SIG data. That leaves you six more to capture the data that you feel is most important.
ACL2.jpg

Enjoy the park and the contacts you make. Don't get all wrapped up in unnecessary logging complexity. POTA logging is as simple as it gets.

Have fun out there!
73,
Rick W0YGH

The "All Since" dance needs to be a part of your usual process. Think of it as a handshake between LoTW and ACL that the QSOs have been received (but not necessarily confirmed).

I go to LOTW section and it tells me I have already sent the qso.
I have both EQSL and LOTW in auto upload.

Re: Parks on the Air (POTA) logging

Jim Shorney
 

There is an active POTA help group on Slack, as well as plenty of help available in the Facebook group. Those are better places to ask how to do POTA in ACL. What you are asking here is venturing into the area of a another contest specific program and Scott has already detailed the logistics involved there.

This is something I would be very interested in as well. I have been trying to update the fields for SIG_INFO etc but there is now some new requirements for another field.

 

I would pay for a POTA version or even as said before a version aimed for NCS Stations.

Re: Prep for Nov Sweepstakes

Deni,

Scott makes each contest program meet the requirements for that contest. Contest exchanges are built in and contacts are logged with the required info. After the contest, you can create your Cabrillo file for submission and then export your contest QSOs into AClog.

The SS log is here:

http://n3fjp.com/novsweeps.html

I highly recommend taking a look at the entire suite of programs. Each one built for a specific contest with no frills or complex configuration.

Hope this helps.

Painful to have to be constantly aware that it might happen at any time, but at least I know what the problem is, and it is not anything to do with 6.7.

Thank you to Dave wo2x!!!! Who called me and helped me out using a TeamViewer troubleshooting session. Always good to have a second pair of eyes when you get stuck. And he found the issue quickly. Thank you kindly Dave! Turned out since I was operating remote the data packets between ACLog and Flex Radio API were not being passed though the home router, as the router was blocking and not forwarding this port. I now have at at least two solutions. 1) port forward 12061 in home router and/or have a local PC running that would serve to feed Flex API with Spots locally. Thanks again Dave for helping understand what the issue was and suggesting work arounds. I hope this information helps someone in the future if they have a similar scenario. The SPOTS were all working for me for about a year when my SSDR client was local and directly connected to the radio through a switch and thus the SPOT data packets were passing successfully from ACLog to Flex Radio Panadapter. When I moved the SSDR client remote, as I didn't think about how that may affect the ACLog to Flex Radio interaction. Dave didn't have to take the time out and kindly lend a hand to this old man but he did and I am grateful. Thank you, dan WA1QZX


Re: FILE/OPEN Command

Scott Davis
 

Hi Ray,

Thanks for your e-mail.  When you click File > Open, only files with a .mdb extension are displayed by default, so make sure you are clicking the proper file command.

If you are sure you are, it sounds like you are signing on to Windows with a different User profile than you were using previously, where your log files reside.  More details on that are here:

Enjoy!

Evening,

I have several different callsigns associated with my N3FJP AC LOG program (my current and original callsigns; my wife's present and original callsigns; club callsign). I have always used the "file/open" command to access these different files when necessary.  Now, however, when I execute the command rather than seeing a list of the log files I see a list of computer files -- not log files.

Help!

Ray, K1HG

Re: DX Spotting Help

Scott Davis
 

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  First, check to see that you are properly signed into the telnet host and it is functioning properly (you are seeing spots on the set up form).  If not, this FAQ will get you going:


http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q95


If you are seeing spots on the set up form, but not the main form, click the More Filtering button and correct your filter settings.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] DX Spotting Help

I just recently registered N2FJP. I set up DX spotting and it was working great.
I closed the program and the band map is not populating, neither is the lower dx spotting list.
I verified that dxspotting is enabled and it was. I reset all the preferences and it continues to not populate.
In the dx spotting settings menu i see the spots coming in but it just isn't being populated. Even the Large DX spotting form is empty.

Thank
Daniel
