Re: Using older *.adi file

Scott Davis
 

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  Please try entering a new contact.  If you get the same error, then your protection settings / software are clamping down on AC Log.  Giving AC Log, the file and folder path the proper permissions in your protection software will correct that.

Enjoy!

Re: AC Log Calldata Out of Date?

Scott Davis
 

Hi Chip,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The data source for the callbook lookup is this:

ftp://wirelessftp.fcc.gov/pub/uls/complete/l_amat.zip

Keep in mind that AC Log will also optionally pull data from previous QSOs forward, based on your settings.

Enjoy!

I had an interesting experience in my POTA activation yesterday.  I'm BRAND NEW to this software and it was my first time using it.
I made about ten different contacts with the same person (once on each of 10 different bands)  and the output from whatever the database used was weird.
I typed in his call sign.. and up pops two different names.. One was in CO and one in ID.  The one in CO was incorrect.  The one in ID has had his call for at least a few years.

What database is used?  When I type his call into QRZ.. everything looks correct.. but in ACLog.. it gets this dual problem.. It's only happened this one time

I had a similar issue with a 2nd contact where this ham replied to my QRZ and, of course, a name and address popped up.  But it was incorrect information.

Curious how frequent this happens..
What database is used for the contact data?

My N3FJP download took place about a week ago.

Hi JoAnn,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Please see this FAQ here:

If you don't need the comment, you can just add the Spot Last button to the main form and click that.

Enjoy!

Over at the SKCC group, a poll was taken on which contest or logging software is used by the members (as an adjunct to the SKCCLogger). I'm happy to report that ACLog did very well :) 
 


Re: AC Log Calldata Out of Date?

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mitch,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The FCC data is updated weekly and you can use the old version of AC Log to process it.  In addition, I run the process every 6 months as well.  The next planned update is January.  

Other services such as QRZ and Buckmaster's Hamcall offer more currently updated options.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] AC Log Calldata Out of Date?

I use AC Log (V6.6) Calldata when I am working POTA and not connected to the internet.  I found out yesterday that that data was out of date.  So... I updated it from the program after connecting back to the internet.  I then checked the calldata.html webpage to see when the data was last updated.  According to that page, the data is updated weekly when using v4.1 or higher of ACLog.  Apparently not?  As a check I entered the callsign of the contact that complained to me about his record, and it has not changed after I downloaded the new files.  QRZ data is current for that one callsign.

What am I doing wrong?

Is it possible to edit this form? I know in the main entry form you can
change what blocks you have, the tab order, etc. Is it possible to do
this with the Net form?

For our local nets, I'd just like to have CALL, NAME, QTH, and COMMENTS.

Thanks Scott, that made it work much nicer. I didn't even know about that setting.

It doesn't seem to have any effect on some sub-windows, like the LoTW, Awards, etc. Those still come out full screen.

Not an issue, just an observation.

Dupes Section - CQ WW DX CW

Marlo Montanaro - KA2IRQ
 

What is the software trying to tell me?  At the risk of sounding like a total noob (I've been a ham for 40 years)...

I'm running the CQ WW DX CW logging software.  Below the box where it says "Possible Duplicates" and above the beam heading it says...

14  Total =11
Bands: 40=2  20=9
CW=11

I looked in the help but I can't find how to decipher this... The station in my Call field is A60A in the United Arab Emirates, which I have never worked on any band or mode before.  If I clear the call field, all of the above clears also, but I'm at a loss to decifer this.

11 what?

No problem.

Scott and crew has built an incredible suite of software and the support is second to none.

It is this great group of people that helps us all out with the tips and tricks that are hidden in the software and helps take some of the load off of Scott so he can continue to build better and better programs for us.

Re: no upload to QRZ?

Unfortunately, there is no AUTOMATED LOTW to QRZ - It's still one more manual process to get from AClog to QRZ (and then HRD?).  Not sure I can leave my old logging program if I have to manually update two other online logs every day.
