Morning All,

Is anyone experiencing issues downloading log files? I am trying to get the ARRL SS contest downloaded but it isnt working. I click on the download link and nothing happens. I have also tried some others to make sure it wasn't just that one.

I even went so far as to disable all firewalls etc on my computer in case that was blocking it, but still no joy

Thanks

Thanks for the report guys.  Edge seems to be working fine (and Chrome works fine here, too).  

The next releases of all my software will be digitally signed, so hopefully that will keep more of the browsers happy.

Enjoy!

Re: Callbook-QRZ Internet Lookup

Scott Davis
 

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  Make sure you only have one call book data source selected.

Aside from the option to put the address in the Comments field on the main form (Callbook > Place Retrieved Address in Comments Field), the only settings in AC Log related to QRZ Online lookup are:

-  A valid QRZ UserName
-  A valid QRZ Password
- The check box checked to Enable QRZ Internet Lookup
-  Make sure no other callbook lookup options are selected.

In addition:

-  You'll need to set your Windows Protection and / or Internet protection software to allow AC Log to access the Internet
-  A QRZ subscription in good standing

Also, make sure that you don't have any unusual characters in your user name or password.  If you stick to letters and numbers you will be fine.

That's all there is to it and there isn't anything else to change or set.  I haven't had any other reports of problems, so if you continue to have trouble, please try reentering your user name and password and then double check your account status with the QRZ folks. 

Enjoy!

This might help you - I know all about the comm port issues, I also run Win4Icom with my radio, and also use com0com to make virtual comm ports, which get put into win4icom - I am sure there is going to be a way to use virtual comm ports to make everything work together - and may even be a free solution https://sourceforge.net/projects/com0com/, I have 8 virtual comm ports, which allows me to have all my apps all up and working and full cat control over the radio, in whatever app I happen to be in - works like a charm.

Hello Scott,

 

I have been using your software since about 2008, and I will admit, underutilizing it... After a little time well spent with your website, and my Icom 7410 manual,, and a couple of false starts, I finally figured out the rig interface. It works like a charm, I am very pleased.

 

Now to get ready for Sweepstakes, and this is the voice of someone who can forget to change bands when entering QSOs into the Contest Logger, I see I have to enter the settings in that software also. No problem.

 

The only problem anywhere that I see is that I will not be able to operate ACLog and Sweepstakes at the same time on the same computer, as there will be a Comport setting issue. I ask this because if I hear a special event station during the contest, sometimes I will take a break, make contact, and go back to the contest.

 

If there is no easy answer, that's fine. Just wanted to express my gratitude for the effort that you put into your software.

Please Test DX Spotting Reconnect in AC Log 6.7.1 Beta!

Scott Davis
 

Hi Gang,

I've been working on enhancing the DX Spotting reconnect functionality in my software.  In addition to automatically attempting a reconnect with your currently selected DX Spotting Telnet host, if the reconnect attempt fails, it will then try the next host in your list.

This is a difficult function to test, as aside from unplugging and replugging the LAN cable to simulate a disconnect, it is tough to simulate all the scenarios causing a disconnection.  I think the best way to test this is for as many of us to run AC Log, as much as possible and see what occurs if / when the Telnet site you happen to be connected to goes down.

If you would like to help test this feature, would you please uninstall your current version of AC Log from Windows Control Panel and then install this version:

http://www.n3fjp.com/programs/ACLBETA.exe

It will say Beta 6.7.1 in the title bar.

Then click Settings > DX Spotting > Configure and check the Auto Reconnect option here:

Capture.JPG


If you have the ability to simulate a connection loss, awesome.  Otherwise, just let AC Log roll and see what happens.  There will be a text to speech voice letting you know if there is a reconnect attempt or a new site is tried.  You will also see text on the DX Spotting set up form of the attempts.

If you leave the PC, make a note of the host you are connected to and see if it is still the same site when you return.

Thanks in advance for your help with this!

Please let me know how you make out!
