Re: eqsl lotw acl and dupes

Scott Davis
 

Hi David,

Thanks for your e-mail. The easiest remedy when contesting is to disable fldigi's auto upload feature. That way, when you upload from AC Log, they will be marked appropriately.

Be well and enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] eqsl lotw acl and dupes

So, on digital contests I use FLdigi, it plays so nicely with ACLog contest loggers. My trouble starts after the contest is over. FLdigi is set to upload live to eqsl and lotw, which it appears to do just fine. After the contest, I transfer to ACL from the contest logger by API. So far, so good. A week later I download all confirmed since from LoTW, and get a ton of imperfect dupes that I spend a whole afternoon removing. Not every entry is duped. There will be runs of 5 or 6 together, and singles and doubles here and there. I think I cleared 50 from the 200 QSOs in CQ WPX RTTY. They "seem" to occur because the downloaded QSO has a different time than the locally stored QSO. Usually a minute but sometimes up to 5!. Is this curable at my end somehow?

sent spots not showing up

philiplevine
 

I have things set up so that when I enter a dx qso I then go to Settings/DX Spotting/Configure/Spot Last and then Send. Is that the best or only way to send spots? Doing that my spots do not appear. I tried using DXspots and Ve7CC.

spotting with N3FJP program

 

I have been using N3FJP for years. Yesterday and today after calling CQ in the CW mode I noticed that I came up in the spotting window multiple times. My N3FJP is set to "dxspots.com". I routinely come up on the reverse beacon network but it has never come over to my spot window. Is this a new feature? Am I the only one seeing the spots or is it also going to the DX cluster? Is there a setting for this? I have attached two pictures of what I saw after calling CQ on 40 meters.   Thanks.

DG and PKEpress

Jeff has updated both DG and PKExpress programs. The biggest update is if your connected to a Logger (AClog or Contest) and you use the Rig Control in the DG or PKEpress, the program will also now change the Band on ACLog or Contest Logger.

Re: VLS Logger

K4NAX Don
 

I found the problem.  The VLS logger automatically finds your position/grid square and logs it.  Since it is different than what is stored in my TQSL file, uploads to LOTW are prevented,  I was able to dis-allow the location feature for the app on my android device and problem solved.  I can now import the files into ACLog and upload as before.

Hello All,

For RTTY contests I like to use HRD then have AClog also running with the API ticked as on for port 1100....the log was not populated...I used to be able to do that which I think is a great feature of N3FJP software.  

Any have an idea to resolve this issue?

Re: "Unable to retrieve data" pop-ups

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your e-mail.

This FAQ was written with Field Day networking in mind, since insufficient permissions causes the error to appear most often under those circumstances, but the following applies to stand alone installations too.

The causes of errors accessing your database are listed from most common to least common as follows:

- By far, the most common cause of that error is that your security permissions are not allowing the program to access the log data file. This can occur as a result of insufficient network permissions, or the file / folder permission settings on your local drive. I have received reports of Window Updates causing your permissions to be changed in some cases.

First, make sure that you save the LogData.MDB file to a drive and directory that is accessible to ALL PCs on the network, or if using a local drive, that the file and folder permissions are set to update, not just read. I do not recommend using your Program Files directory, as Windows is especially particular about allowing access there. Instead, use something like c:\FieldDay. The drive, folder and file ALL must have their permissions set to Update, not just Read and must be accessible to all the PCs on your network. In this example, your drive c, your folder FieldDay and your file LogData.mdb must all have permissions set to Update. The drive and folder must also be Shared. More details and the example network security sharing settings I use are here:

http://www.n3fjp.com/FDInfoTips.html#networkingtips

- Your network is having drops in connectivity. I have lots more information on remedying that here: http://www.n3fjp.com/help/networkinghelp.html.

- Your virus protection software is blocking the connection. I've had user reports from folks attempting to run two different virus protection software programs simultaneously, which were in conflict with each other, preventing the connection. Disabling one of the virus programs corrected the problem. In another case, Kaspersky issued an update that affected all programs using Microsoft Access databases, including mine. Kaspersky users had to wait for Kaspesky to issue a corrected update to remedy that situation.

- There have been a few other, very rare reports, which I've been documenting half way down this page here:
