Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Hello and a question

Hello Everyone,
I'm a long time N3FJP user but new member to your group.
Question:
I sometimes have to import contacts from an ADIF file, for example, the WSJT-X log file.
When I do import, ACL doesn't perform the QRZ look up and data fill in.
My QRZ credentials are correct, ACL does look up new contacts but not those I import.
How can I get ACL to do a QRZ look up for specific log entries.
Or, failing that, is there a program that I can use to do a bulk look up, export to ADIF and then import to ACL?
Thanks & best 73, Rich

I’m using the latest version of ACL. I can’t change the power level. No matter what I do it keeps coming back to the power level that it has been set to for months.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] How to cancel "Transmit CW"

I was using Winter Field Day Logger.

 

I had too many USB connections for my laptop. And I plugged in a USB keyboard lamp, Rig Control (that I just got working with my TS-50), Keying adapter, Signalink USB, Mouse.)

 

I used an old powered hub that I have had for years. When I plugged in the keyboard lamp I transferred the keying adapter and the rig control to the hub. Later, when I plugged in the Signalink, which wants adequate power, I transferred my moue to the powered hub and plugged the Signalink directly into the computer.

 

Every time I keyed the radio with my microphone PTT or my code key, or the Signalink, the system would go crazy killing all the com ports as well as my mouse. I had to spend time reactivating the ports and finding my mouse again.

 

The computer told me that the USB hub was unrecognizable. I took it and the USB lamp out and plugged in the rig control and the keying adapter directly as well as the mouse. Joy!

 

Then I thought I would try to set up for digital, so I unplugged the keying adapter and (eventually) plugged in the Signalink. I brought up FLDIGI, and after I figured out the missing connections, I got it working and it was asking for frequencies and receiving the actual frequency. I need to work on how to make QSOs but I think it was working. I decoded some CQs. Now to work on answering.

 

As I could not see much action so I wanted to go back to CW and SSB. There was notice about a missing COM5 in the Transmit CW. I unplugged the Signalink and plugged in the CW adapter. Message kept recurring. It was toward the end of the Field Day period, so I did not want to shut down to repair the COM port.

 

Rig control was still working so I tried to type a new frequency into the CallSign Field. After every digit, the notice about the CW Com port recurred and had to be acknowledged.

 

I could not find the checkbox to check or uncheck saying enable this function. Could I have turned it off?

 

Next time I am going to have to think carefully of what I connect to the USB ports. That recurring message made the program nearly unusable.

 

Or is there a reliable powered USB hub available?

 

Thanks

Re: Winter Field Day log question #contest

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Yes, all my contest software functions that way since inception (over 20 years now).  It was a philosophical decision for two primary reasons:

1.  To enable folks to begin logging with the absolute minimum of complexity and decision making.

2.  Folks often don't know what additional bonuses they will wind up with (did they change their mind and increase power mid contest due to rough conditions, did they successfully make a satellite QSO, did they copy the W1AW bulletin, etc.).

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Winter Field Day log question #contest

Hi. I used the N3FJP software for Winter Field Day this past weekend and it worked flawlessly. The one question I have relates to keeping track of scoring.  During the contest, the main page keeps track of ongoing score based on QSOs, modes, and automatically computed multipliers. The automatically computed multipliers are based on unique modes per band and bands.  It does not take into account the power multiplier.  When the Cabrillo file is created, it includes the power multiplier (In my case it was less than or equal 100 watts, for a multiplier of 2) as well as extra credit points. It multiplied the displayed score on the main contest page by the power multiplier to give the computed score in the Cabrillo file.  I guess this is  matter of philosophy, since there are also additional credits which are added when the Cabrillo file is created. But the power multiplier has a large impact to the score.  Should that be included as part of the setup?  It is a single digit multiplier, easy to enter.
Thanks,
Steve K1RF


Re: How to cancel "Transmit CW"

John I had a similar problem using an older win 10 computer with a bad keyboard.
One usb port was then used for a remote keyboard.
RF from 20 meters was getting in and taking control of my software.
I found it necessary to put some ferrites on the wired keyboard connection and
that cured the rfi. It's a good thing to keep ferrites available when messing around
as I did!!

Hi Maury,

Thanks so much for your kind words on the software!

I suggest that you start a new topic thread with Flex Keyboard in the subject title, so that more Flex users will be able to see the thread and hopefully be able to provide some insight on that.

Thanks again!

Just want to say that it was super easy operating and submitting my log for the CQ 160 CW contest. Your software made it more enjoyable. I look forward to using it in more contests in the future. 

One question, I had a conflict with F key operation between my Flex SDR and ACLog. I had to mouse click to get ACLog CW choices to work, if I used the F Keys it would use the text set up in Flex SDR. Any idea how to manage that so I can use ACLog F Key vs. Flex?

Walter,
Welcome back!  I was only a year or two ahead of you, getting back into ham radio after retiring.  Much has changed, much hasn’t.

Just like you, I love the N3FJP software — just used it in the 160M CQ DX contest and it is much more fun than 15 sheets of scribbled upon paper I used to use.

 I exported the contest log, then imported it into ACL, then upload from the ACL menu to LoTW.  I also use the file to upload to QRZ.com which allows recent contacts to see that they’re in my log.   If you are into a map, QSOmap allows you to put your contacts on a color map.
Good luck,

George NGM
