Hi Nick. Welcome to the best piece of ham radio software around. To answer your questions:

1. You need to connect ACL with QRZ; you'll need a QRZ XML subscription.
  1. Choose the menu item CALLBOOK>QRZ INTERNET LOOKUP
  2. Fill in your QRZ membership login and password.
  • If you'd like to see the member's QRZ page displayed in a window along with your log, there's a box to check for that.
I'm attaching screenshots of both of these steps.
2. Yes. The $50 gets you every program/log Scott has ever written (or will write in the future). VERY good deal. Each of the individual contest logs' records can be imported into ACL if you wish.

Filtering Out RTTY DX Spots

Jeff Freedman
 

Greetings fellow ACLoggers. I thought the following was obvious, but apparently not. Still haven’t got it to work right.

I’m looking to receive only CW DX spots. What do I need to set to filter out RTTY alerts classified as CW-mode please?

Thanks!

Scott,
 
If you could slightly modify the workings of “Net and Round Table Manager” it could (would) work exactly as Rick, KN3C, is requesting.
Currently the ”on Time” is populated with the current “On Time” {Good} when a call is entered and you move out of the “Call” field.
However, clicking the “Log” button Does Not enter the current time in the “Off Time” on the main form.
This also Doesn’t occur when you press the “Save and Close” button.
If either of those buttons would populate the “Off Time” field on the main form with the time the button was clicked, it would be very useful, and do exactly what Rick is wanting.
I would also like to see this happen, as it would greatly enhance the usefulness of the Net and Round Table Manager feature.
 
Just my thoughts on the situation.

Net Logger is a web based system used by a great many nets.  I've used it briefly.  As I understand it, anyone who wants to check into a net has to log into Net Logger so the net controller knows they are waiting. 

We really don't have a net in the strict sense of the word.  It's just a bunch of hams who get together daily and shoot the breeze.  When I was searching for logging programs way back when, the ability to enter Time Off was missing from most programs, since, I assume, they were meant primarily for DXing or contesting.  Logging programs that emulate the old paper logs were difficult to find.  ACL comes closest to what I was looking for.  Hey I'm retired.  What's a few more keystrokes, right?

Re: Time Off Field

Neil Macklem
 

I second the motion! I use ACL NET function and the only thing missing is the time off entry when I log the station out of the net. 

Scott does have the "Net Manager Logging Program V1.0 on his website under the "Specialty Logs-Other programs" selection. 



This is not the same as the "Net" feature in ACL. It does allow you to enter the time out for each station by tabbing to the field or clicking the field in the order they leave. You can keep the entire list on screen until the end, so you can see the progression of the net. When finished, you can click the "Log All"  and it will populate the History file for the program. You then go to the main File tab and select the Export ADIF and set the range of entries to export. This is then imported to ACL. 

If the ACL Net feature can be modified to add the time off it would be good using that. The other feature that I would like if possible, is to have all logged calls stay on the screen unit the end so I can reference the times they checked in and out, as happens with the net Manager program. Currently the "Net" section will remove them from the list when logged and the sequence number will show the highest number on the active list, not the total number of check-ins, so it doesn't indicate the total number of stations. If I have 4 on the list and one leaves, I click the Log button and they are removed. When I add the 5th station, they show as #4 in the Order.

Sorry for the long response Scott!

Bob,

You have it correct.  In my previous two log programs, to log off a contact, you just highlighted it and hit F1?  It was that simple.

And as you surmised, I'm editing the off times manually, which takes longer, but isn't the end of the world.  Like I said in an earlier post, I'm retired so I have time.  But I'm also lazy so hitting a single "F" key or using a single mouse click takes less steps!

I would look for a simple Excel Spreadsheet to modify to do what you want. I haven’t worked with Excel for years, but I remember it is fairly simple to develop this kind of APP. After the net you could import your info from it into your main log. Look around online there are many spreadsheet logging APP’s to go through, and then simply modify to your exact spec…

Mike,

Net Logger is a web based system used by a great many nets.  I've used it briefly.  As I understand it, anyone who wants to check into a net has to log into Net Logger so the net controller knows they are waiting. 

We really don't have a net in the strict sense of the word.  It's just a bunch of hams who get together daily and shoot the breeze.  When I was searching for logging programs way back when, the ability to enter Time Off was missing from most programs, since, I assume, they were meant primarily for DXing or contesting.  Logging programs that emulate the old paper logs were difficult to find.  ACL comes closest to what I was looking for.  Hey I'm retired.  What's a few more keystrokes, right?

Thanks,
Rick, KN3C

Mike,

I think you summed it up perfectly.  The last program I used was Win-EQF which was originally written by Tom Dandrea and then later on sold to Torkel Jodalen.  It did most of what ACL does, not all.

Sadly, of the other logging candidates I've looked at, ACL was the best of the bunch for my type of operating.   It's registered, and I can continue to use it.  Maybe I can convince Scott to add a "feature" at some future date?  I am no programmer so I can't roll my own logging program.

Appreciate all of the feedback.

Re: Time Off Field

Rick,
The 'time on' is automatic when you tab there after you enter the call which you know. My 'time off'  time does not get populated until I hit 'log contact' which is what I am understanding is your desire.

Dave,

Saw that but unless I'm missing something, that's not helpful.  It logs the "on" time in the "off" field when you initiate the contact.  When I have completed a QSO, I log the off time.  This is a casual QSO, not a contest.

Hey, it's not the end of the world, but a keystroke rather than having to type in the time would be easier.

I keep accurate logs, including Time Off.  Is there any way to automatically log the Time Off?  Currently I have to do that manually by editing each contact.  My previous logging program allowed you to highlight the contact, hit an "F" key, and the off time would be automatically entered.

I looked through the documentation but haven't found much about the Time Off field.
