Re: province/state

My question was not clear Scott, when I log a contact in my general log, if the contact is from Texas then Texas will be in the state box, but when it comes to Canadian provinces, it doesn't work, if I work someone from Quebec the box stay empty, if I look in the list there is all U.S. state but no Canadian provinces, I believe I had.them before.

can I reset my record numbers

Ken Reid
 

Hi,
Can I reset my contact record numbers to match with the date and time.
I somehow brought in some new contacts that have record numbers 1- 180 or so.
I want my earliest contact to be #1 and my latest contact to have the highest number.
Thanks

Yes it was great in the CQ WW DX SSB contest.  While looking for multipliers it would tell me if I had worked the country or not and if I still needed a confirmation or not.  It allowed me to work 5 all time new ones during the contest.

Larry,

They QSOs won't transfer "real time". The ADI transfer is for after the contest to put the entire contest log into ACLog. The other option is used to tie multiple programs together so that the main program communicates with the rig and cw interfaces.

Hope this makes sense.

Now I just need help to get the Software to connect to my radio.

FlRig connects to my Radio.  The problem is in the N3FJP rig control it dos not show the Linux com ports.

Does anyone know how to make this connection in Linux Mint 20?

In this reply the link brings up a list of three options for installing the logging software.  In Linux Mint 20 I used

"On 1/20/2020, Bill, WA7NCL sent along these step by step, detailed instructions for running the new (since 2014) .Net versions of my software on Linux Wine."

This one runs the logging software and loads my logging data.

Be careful of the one encouraging you to load WineHQ.  The SDRplay folks told me to do that to get SDRUno going and it broke my system.  Be Warned.

Hello All,

My Windows 7 PC died so I have switched to Linux Mint 20 with Wine.

I have loaded the ACLOG and it opens and has registered.

I have a backed up copy of my log but when I try to load it I get and Error 0  It says it "cannot find table 0"

What do I need to do to get this to work?

Also I cannot connect the rig.  However FlRig and Fldigi both connect to my rig so I know the connection is possible.  Of course the Com ports in Wine do not match the selections needed for Linux 

Has anyone succeeded in connecting to their rig in the ACLog on linux?
Is there a way to get the data through FlRig as Fldigi does?

The API is even simpler.  Choose it from the menu, complete the mode translation screen and the transfer is done.

The API is simpler, in the File menu there is an option to transfer via api.  This does exactly the same thing as the export/import without the file being written and having to do 2 steps.

The following was taken from the ARRL Letter dated 11/5/20

A Sweepstakes "Clean Sweep" Means Working 84 Sections This Year
The ever-popular ARRL November Sweepstakes (SS) weekends are upon us -- one for CW and the other for SSB. This year, participants will have to search out an additional Section. The CW event takes place November 7 - 9 (UTC), and the SSB event is from November 21 - 23 (UTC). Each Sweepstakes leg begins at 2100 UTC on Saturday and runs through 0259 UTC on Monday. Stations may operate 24 of the available 30 hours. An SS Operating Guide package, available via the SS web page, explains how to participate in Sweepstakes. Clubs or public service teams that are considering participating in SS will find
the guide to be a useful source for information. This year marks the 79th SS event, which attracts more than 3,000 entries each fall for both weekends.
The number of ARRL and Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) Sections rose to 84 earlier this year with the addition of Prince Edward Island (PE) as a separate entity. The objective of SS -- or "sweeps" -- is to work as many stations in as many of the 84 Sections as possible within 24 hours of operating. The number of Sections worked is a score multiplier, and working all of them -- a "clean sweep" in SS terminology -- is the goal of many SS aficionados, who qualify for a clean sweep coffee mug. Hardcore SS operators try to run up the contact and multiplier counts by operating for the allowed 24 hours.
Some multipliers are rarer and/or harder to work, and these can vary from year to year. For many years, the most difficult SS multiplier was considered to be Northern Territories (NT) in Canada, where J. Allen, VY1JA, in Yukon Territory, was often the only station available. Allen has stepped back from amateur radio, however, owing to health issues. Making a clean sweep also requires working Alaska and Hawaii (or another station in the Pacific Section), as well as Newfoundland/Labrador (NL) and Prince Edward Island (PE) in the other direction. On the rarer side, finding -- and working -- stations in Alberta (AB), North Dakota (ND), Northern New York (NNY), US Virgin Islands (VI), Wyoming (WY), and Delaware (DE) has proven vexing for some SS operators.
Nonetheless, even stations with modest equipment and antennas can
enjoy success. Many stations like to operate in the QRP category (with an output of 5 W or less), although that challenge has been more daunting at this point in the solar cycle.
ARRL November Sweepstakes is the oldest domestic radiosport event (the first was in 1930). The SS contest exchange has deep roots in message-handling protocol and replicates a radiogram preamble. In SS, stations exchange:
  • A consecutive serial number (NR). Operators do not have to add zeros ahead of numbers less than 100.
  • Operating category (Precedence) -- Q for Single Operator, QRP; A for Single Operator, Low Power (up to 150 W output); B for Single Operator, High Power (greater than 150 W output); U for Single Operator, Unlimited, regardless of power; M for Multioperator, regardless of power, and S for School Club.
  • Your call sign.
  • Check (CK) -- the last two digits of the year of first license for either operator or station.
  • Section -- ARRL/RAC Section.
Full contest rules and an Operating Guide that includes examples of log formatting are available on the Sweepstakes web page. The deadline to submit CW entries is November 16. The deadline to submit phone entries is November 30.
