Scroll to the right until you see the frequency column. Click-hold on the title bar and drag it to the left until you have it where you want it.

I suggest you keep it in the lower box also for times when you may want to enter the freq manually.

Re: Parks on the Air (POTA) logging

Jim Shorney
 

I have not done this yet myself but I would imagine that if you enter at least your grid square and state into the designated log fields in ACL and turn on the override in TQSL it should work. I do see a Grid S field in ACL but there doesn't seem to be a way to put it in the data entry area. It looks like you can enter it for your most recent QSO logged by using the QSO Edit form>More and it will fill from there. You could also fill it manually (as MY_GRIDSQUARE) in your ADIF export with ADIF Master. You might want to get in contact with K0BAK, he is a prolific park activator and no doubt has used this a lot although I think he uses N1MM for his park roves.

Hi Jim,

How does it do that?  Do you have to change your location in ACL?  I run mobile/portable a lot and use the method described above setting up a new LOTW location.  This seems easier.

Buzz,

    I have written a program that acts as a CW memory keyer for my IC-7300. I use the API to get the call of the station I am trying to work from one of the N3FJP contest logging programs and embed it in my contest messages.

Re: using contest loggers to send CW

John Miller <n1umjjohn@...>
 

Scott, I am using a different port for CW from the one used for rig
control. Frank it seems weather I check DTR or RtS either way it does
it but only when the software is open. I close the software it's fine
so I'm thinking the cable is fine. It's got to be either a setting, or
my computer being flakey again, that computer is the master of flakey
sometimes. When it works, it works but any time I plug something new
in to a USB port, forget it I'm in for several days of headaches, so
here I am now. If I wasn't laid off with no chance of being hired
back, I'd just give up on that computer and get another one but right
now, I'm dealing with what I have.

Hi John,

You will need to use a separate port for CW from rig interface.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] using contest loggers to send CW

I got a cable on amazon to go from the usb port of my computer and send CW
with the straight key jack. I believe it uses RTS though there is no info
with it. No matter how I set it though, as soon as I open the software,
mostly tested with the 10 meter contest logger since that's the next contest
I plan to participate in, as soon as I open the software it's like someone's
holding a straight key down, just a constant tone. Is this a software
setting I need to change or is it something with the cable? radio is a
ts-590S not the G version. I have another cable with the 1/4 jack I tried
that with an adapter but the computer doesn't like that one, it will this
computer just is a pain about anything I add to it for some reason and I
don't feel like going through the hassle of setting up another device on
this nightmare computer if I don't have to. I'm guessing there is no way to
send CW with the usb port in the radio as there is with some? I rather send
by hand but you know the odd contest now and then it's nice to have that for
stored CW reports and stuff.
Thanks,

Hi Larry,
 
Those are listed on the band headings on the contest page.  Look for the numbers after the band, for example my 40M header shows: 40 = 18 / 8, which means 18 countries and 8 zones.

CQ WW D Contest Logger

Scott,
    I know you have a reason for doing this but LOTW has a headache with it.
When the Contest was over, I had it not only create a Cabrillo log file which I
sent to CQ. I then had it make an .ADIF file. When I attempted to send this file
to LOTW, LOTW had a headache with it. Saying that the PH for Mode was Invalid.
I had to go back into the Contest Logger, create a new ADIF File but this time I let
it convert the PH to SSB. Then LOTW was happy. SO why do you use PH for SSB
contacts and not SSB? I did notice that the Field Day Logger used PHONE and LOTW
was Happy with that.
