Re: CW PTT

Scott Davis
 

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your follow up.  Choose the com port you have your CW interface connected to, from the upper left list of the graphic you sent, under the Com Port heading.  

The amp keying is opposite the CW keying, so since you have DTR keying selected, your amp will be keyed from the RTS line (assuming you have all that configured on the hardware side).

Hi Scott -
I tried the CW PTT for Amps check box but I can't find where it defines which com port I am keying the PTT. After I check the box nothing happens.  In the ACL Phone setup we configure the com port for PTT as shown.  I am looking for the same set up for CW.  Thanks and 73 - Paul NO0T

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] CW PTT

Hi folks

I have a remote station operation using an ICOM 756 Pro 3, Airspy HF+ Discovery SDR and a Palstar LA-1K amp.  I use an RF switch relay to switch between the SDR and the Amplifier.   For Software I use Ham Radio Deluxe for CAT to the ICOM radio and N3FJP ACL for logging and keyboard CW.  Computer is Windows 10 64 bit.

When I try to send CW while operating contests or casual QSO's I always get the first character of the letter cut off when I start sending. When I use the ACL keyboard to send CW, the first character i.e. a dit or dah  is cut off.  If I use a keyer directly onsite with a separate PTT line to the radio no problem.  I suspect the semi-breaking keying is too slow for the relays to close, losing the first dit or dash.

I use a physical RS232 port to key the PTT on the radio from a RS232 COM port on the back of the radio but I can find no way to configure that port in the CW settings of ACL.  I can configure a direct PTT com line from the ACL Phone settings.

What am I missing - is there any way to key the RS232 com port PTT line immediately when I hit send from the keyboard?

Thanks for the help.

Re: Problem with ACL and SatPC32 interface with Kenwood TS2000

Super, thanks so much for the good report Steve!

I assume then for normal operations (when there is only a single return value), you tried both FA and FB and everything works normally as well with both?

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?

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.

Also keep in mind that people using radios inappropriately may likely be
using ANY frequency. In fact, the chances of them using "standard"
frequencies is less likely than using "random" frequencies. If they were
cognizant of standard ham simplex or other channels, they probably would
avoid them. Also, remember band plans vary around the country, so the
simplex frequencies listed below may not apply in your area.

We have found "bootleggers" on various unexpected frequencies in our
area. For example, there is a group of Spanish speakers using the output
frequency of a distant 440 ham repeater using low power handhelds.
Another group was found on 146.555. Cheap readily available radios
(Baofengs, etc.) come with a bunch of ham and non-ham frequencies
programmed "out of the box". We often find people using these channels
for various communications. Inland areas often find people using marine
radios for improper communications. (Very common in mid-west farming
areas far from water.)

If you are interested in looking for these, I suggest using the
"band-scan" feature of most scanners by inputting a low and high
frequency and scanning everything in between. Again, as previously
mentioned, programmable analog scanners are often found cheaply on the
used market. Receive only systems are much more forgiving, so I have a
25-1300 MHz discone antenna on the roof feeding an amplified wide range
multicoupler designed for 75 ohm TV distribution feeding several
scanners and SDR dongle receivers to monitor a wide variety of services
and frequencies.

Re: New Log

Mike Olbrisch
 

One caution here.  That “all contacts not uploaded” only works if you have never been portable anything or anywhere but home.  If you have operated from two or more separate locations, each group of QSOs needs to be uploaded separately using the proper location file containing the proper certificate.

I realize that the majority of hams operate from one home location.  That being the case, Scott’s words are accurate.

Hi Bob,

 

Thanks for your e-mail.  Sure you can export a year's worth of records in ADIF and then click File > New > New database, enter a new file name and import the file.  That said, it is MUCH easier to just become unstuck and use the LoTW features I've worked hard building into AC Log already for you.

 

In short, instead of doing all of the above, on the LoTW form, simply click All Contacts Not Uploaded.

 

Enjoy!

With 123K QSO in my initial ACLOG I find that creating a new ADIF batch (100+Q’s) for upload to LOTW probably takes longer than it would if the log were smaller. I know, the process can be automated but I’m stuck in my ways.

My questions:

Would it help to create a new (additional) log and if so, how would I do that without destroying what’s already in place?

Could I copy the prior one year’s Q’s to the new log?

Thanks,
Bob, N2UU

Hi Pat,

Thanks for your e-mail.  You have OneDrive set as your default Documents directory for your user profile.  That's okay (I think, I don't use OneDrive myself), but you will need to give the software the proper permissions to access the folder.

Enjoy!

Re: New Log

Hi Bob,
 
It’s much easier to upload directly from ACLog and only upload new contacts.  No need to generate an ADIF file.

Select your new contacts, then: eLogs >> LoTW >> Selected Contacts from Main Form
