Recently, when uploading QSOs to LOTW, it has been asking me for my LOTW
password. In ACL, my information is correct, and in LOTW all
my info is correct. Certificate does not expire until 2022.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Re: Problem with ACL and SatPC32 interface with Kenwood TS2000

Thanks Scott,
I'm using the Kenwood option.  If you look at the screen shots the first frequency received is A which is the downlink frequency 435MHz. The uplink frequency( Receiver B) is sent second 145MHz. From what you said, ACL first picks A. Does it enter that into the log even though  B was requested?? Isn't that the problem? Shouldn't  ACL continue to look at the received strings until it finds B and enters that frequency into the log? I apologize if I'm missing something?

With the Kenwood2 option, your rig should return the active VFO regardless.  In that case, the software looks for IF.  

I hope that this helps!

Hi Scott,
Thanks for looking.
I think I know what's happening. Satpc32 Commands the TS2000 Receiver A and B (SSB U/L) about every few sec for doppler correction and frequency read. ACL polls the TS2000 every 2 sec by setting. This occurs over a single COM port using a virtual COM port splitter.

Please refer to the screenshots attached. Does the ACL code ignore the tag FA or FB  of received data to determine which Receiver frequency to enter into the log?  Or does it ignore the Tag assuming it is the response from the Receiver that was commanded to read? When Satpc32 is not running, ACL works fine. Please confirm.

Many thanks,

Different gear, but same problem. Haven’t yet found a way around it. It’s a PITA, and not limited to ACL. I’ve tried several different logging programs for satellites and have the same problem with all of them.

Hi Scott or anyone,

The TS2000 has only one RS232 port. I'm using a virtual port splitter to connect Satpc32 and N3FJP to that port. The TS2000 has 2 receivers. When operating on different uplink and downlink bands (Receiver A set to downlink and Receiver B set to uplink), N3FJP records the received frequency/band (Receiver A) in the log. I wish to have the transmitted uplink frequency/band (Receiver B) recorded in my log. I have configured ACL in the radio settings menu to read Receiver B (FB;) but ACL still reports Receiver A. Any help in fixing this would be appreciated.

Double logging.

 

Hello Scott. Hey I am getting back to using FLDIGI. I have ur ACLOG doing the logging.
What's happening is in the beginning of the qso it logs to ACLOG with no signal report. Then my goodbye macro I have it to auto log with a signal report which is what I want.
Any thoughts??

I enjoy working contests  very informally, just like giving people a few points.
I just use N3FJP standard logger.
I setup the 1st "other" field and  named it "contest,etc".
Recently worked a contest and put the same value in "Other1" for each contact I made.

How do I do a "search and replace" on the records in my log file.

locked Off Topic: Protecting our Frequencies & Our Country

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

Below is an e-mail I sent to our local club yesterday afternoon.  We are in a unique position to do so something very helpful for our country, by monitoring for illegal activity.  Collectively, I suspect we can provide this service better than anyone else on the planet.

The text is specific to our club, so you will likely want to reword some of this, to make it applicable to your area, before you share it with your local group, but please feel free to use any sections that are pertinent....

Subject: Everyone, Please Read: Protecting our NEMARC Frequencies & Our Country

Hi All,

I think most of us are still somewhat reeling, sickened and incredulous as to what happened last week in Washington.  Whatever our political beliefs, that behavior is completely and totally unacceptable.

As you probably know, the riot organizers have lost the use of most of the on line forums that they previously relied on for planning and coordination.  What you may not know is that these individuals are now turning to two way radio to further their agenda.  According to a CNN article dated today, the FCC just made the following statement:

https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/17/tech/fcc-radio-extremist-social-media-attack/index.html

"The Bureau has become aware of discussions on social media platforms suggesting that certain radio services regulated by the Commission may be an alternative to social media platforms for groups to communicate and coordinate future activities," the FCC said in its warning Sunday. "Individuals using radios in the Amateur or Personal Radio Services in this manner may be subject to severe penalties, including significant fines, seizure of the offending equipment, and, in some cases, criminal prosecution."

I believe that is occurring in our area.  Earlier this afternoon, I heard a new guy "testing" on 146.595.  I gave him a call and asked the normal, welcoming questions.  It didn't take long for the individual, alluding to the riots, to explain that he and several of his friends were newly licensed in the last few months, so that they could communicate and make plans for certain emergencies / contingencies / meetups, etc.  He went on to explain that they had their own Discord channel, but it that their Discord channel got shut down after the riots.  It is easy to infer the content of their channel if it gave Discord cause to block it.

In addition, episodes of intentional, harmful interference in Harford County are increasing.  It's not limited to the ham bands.  Public service frequencies, such as Harford Fire are also being intentionally interfered with.

So, we have two specific goals:

1.  We do not want these guys on our NEMARC frequencies.

2.  We do not want these guys in our area.


To keep these guys off our frequencies....

We've not been as active on 146.595 lately, so perhaps others have found it easy to slide in.  For us to accomplish goal number 1, we need to make 146.595 less attractive for their purposes.  These guys are looking for frequencies where they can communicate without lots of ears.  If you hear someone new on the frequency, call them.  Be nice and engaging.  First, they might truly be good, new folks (and we sure want them to stay), but if they are guys with nefarious intent, they are not going to want to continually have to go "around" us to plan their stuff.  So, everyone, please monitor 146.595.  If you hear someone new, chat them up every time they are on (but don't invite them to join NEMARC until you are sure they are ok).  They will get tired of us and move to another frequency.

If you start a conversation, ping the rest of us on Discord, so that we can all join in.


To get these guys out of here.....

Guys, you and I are in a unique position to be especially useful in ferreting out these guys and helping to protect our country.  

If we can prove illegal communications are occurring, we can relay that proof to the authorities.  The beauty is, we already have most of the equipment we need to listen for that proof.  My guess is these guys are going to be using unmodified radios, so think Amateur Radio, FRS, GMRS and CB frequencies.  Most of us already have good antennas covering those bands.  All we need are inexpensive analog scanners with those frequencies programmed in.  

If you pick up illegal communication, record it.  Should we obtain solid evidence of planning for illegal activity, I have contacts with ARRL that I know will advise us on how to proceed.

If you don't already have a scanner, I purchased this 500 channel, analog scanner about a year ago.  It is only $99 and is perfect for the application we are describing, covering all the frequencies they would likely use:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C73X4FK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

After this is over, you can always use it to monitor local repeaters, simplex, 10 meter repeaters, Harford Fire, etc.

You will want to hook the scanner to a good antenna.  The telescoping whip won't cut it.  I will be using either my 2M / 440 antenna, or a scanner antenna.  There are adapters available to easily hook your existing coax run to your scanner.  It will hear like a champ!

Finally, keep communicating with the group.  If you hear something locally, let others know what frequency(s) to monitor on Discord and e-mail.  Above all, if illegal activity is being discussed, DO NOT ENGAGE or tip your hand.  Just press record.


Let's do our part in this guys.  We can make a difference and help protect our country and uphold the basis and purpose of Amateur Radio.

Thanks for the reply. I was able to download with Microsoft Edge and with IE. I also tried the trick from the link using a right click>Save Link in Chrome and it worked. I am using Chrome 87.

 

Anyway, we got the file and we are good to go for Winter Field Day (using Web Upload Contest)!
