Re: LotW Status Display

Jim Hamlin
 

Thanx for the insight.  I've just connected my rig to N3FJP and have stopped manual logging so it's time to get a proven back up and restore procedure in place.  I'd like to use a permanent usb thumbdrive for this purpose, but need help on how to set this up.  Ie, how to link it to the logger, then how to do a recovery or restore.  Any details you might point me to?  I'm running windows 7 and not very good at moving files around.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your e-mail.  You won't see a red QSO from your LoTW downloads, as only records you upload (Sent) are returned from LoTW.

This explains why newly uploaded QSOs are black:

I'm a bit confused as to LotW status shown on my main screen.  My colors selected are:
Sent = Green
Received = Red
Sent & Received = Blue
 
None of my qso line items ever show up in red, and immediately after I upload new qso's to LotW, the ones that just were uploaded still appear in black.  I'm sure I'm missing something here.
 
PS: I just connected my radio to N3FJP and love'n it!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] ACL Sort on Date/Time error/bug? v 6.7

 

All,

 

I am trying to sort ACL v6.7 log by Date / Time to export just a select range of recent ones (all contact since N5QJ) - I normally do this by just Rec# order. But I realized sorting by date field is more correct as the Rec# is NOT always the same order as contact date/time.

 

However, when I click the header field to do so, I now see the sorting is in error. It seems to not take in account the YEAR in the sort - thus is not truly sorting correctly...   (Example below)

 

Is it just me?  Can someone confirm?

Re: Second RX2 Freq

Patrick Moonen
 

Hi Scott,

Today the last update RX1 & RX2 work together with 2x JTDX and 2x JTAlert.
This with uploads from both JTAlert to N3FJP.
The CTRL X works as it should and follows nicely RX1 and RX2 when switching all of this in V6.7.3 here.

Scott to you the family and the team Merry Christmas !

I know this isn't N3FJP problem, I think its LoTW.
Has anybody seen this, it just started about a month ago.
Every time I enter a new QSO it pops up. It doesn't appear to be

Any suggestions on a contest log that I could press into service for the Gedebage CW Contest coming up this weekend?  Exchange is pretty basic: Log just needs to record (sent and received) callsign, band, signal report and serial number.

Re: DX Spotting

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.  AC Log connects to one Telnet host at a time, but the sites I am familiar with (by no means all of them) appear to relay mostly the same data.

Re: Uploaded to LOTW but not appearing in LOTW

Updated to 6.7.

Another page that shows current status for LOTW is here.

This shows if they are on line or off and is updated, I believe, every minute.

Re: Can't connect to spotting

 

Note that when I noticed VE7CC--the one I had been using--was down when I fired up at about 1200Z this morning, I tried all of the ones listed. They all appeared to be down.

DXSpots is, as Scott noted, apparently working now. I did not try the others.
