Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Alert for Countries Needed

Hello Scott.

I am trying to work all entities and have 248 logged now, with 92 remaining. Is there any way or setting in your AC Log that will alert me of a needed country from the DX Cluster? I previously had used LogEqf which became WinEqf and eventually has been abandoned. That logging program had such a feature. It would alert me when a needed country/entity would show up on the DX Cluster. I just recently started using AC Log again ( I had tried it a few years ago, but soon after quit chasing DX) and love it. I've been tayloring it to my liking and miss that particular DX function. Perhaps some of your other software does that...I haven't checked it all out yet. I thought I'd just ask so as to save time.

Thanks for a great product and thanks for your time.

Boy do I need better glasses. Thanks again Larry. I always thought that feature was automatically updated. I go to the ACLog LOTW page a few times a week and never saw that. Getting old is a challenge.

Noticed something. When tabbing from the CALL box and the last LOTW upload
is listed all dates are from August 2017. But when I go to the LOTW web site
and put the same calls in the FIND CALL box a newer current date is shown
According to ACLog N3FJP hasn't uploaded since August of 2017, but the
actual date was just a few days ago, just like myself and many others I
checked with.

Great contest, thanks to the N3FJP log used at N0GM

George Merkle N0GM
 

Scott & Kimberly,
Thank you for making such a great log!  Operating this contest was such a delight, especially since I slipped on ice last week and broke my hand and knee cap, so was pretty much confined to the ham shack (no, I didn't plan this!).

CTRL-H function to store calls and frequencies enabled me to bag Cuba, Venezuela, and Curacao in the last 12 minutes of the contest, as I toggled between them.  (So much easier than stacked VFOs on my Yaseu FTDX3000, which require keeping a paper track of which VFO is where.)  Dupe function and Super Check again made it so much easier, especially for those 40 wpm computer generated CQ's barely audible, and this time, the DX spotting feature actually enabled me to log some contacts I otherwise would have missed.

I started out the contest with a stack of blank paper on my desk to keep notes, but only used 2 or 3 sheets for 242 QSO's, a tribute to the efficacy of your program.  Have already successfully uploaded the log to the ARRL and imported it into ACL for LOTW.

Bravo Zulu (Well Done) from this one time Navy radioman.

Well Kimberly, that did it!  My rig settings did not show a "newer 2" but then I installed the new update (I was on 6.5) and then it was there, thanks!


Re: ACLOG view for vertical monitor #setup

That did it but not without difficulty...  the JTAlert window vanished when I swapped monitors.  Adjusted resolution to “find” the missing window.  It seems to be good now.  Hope it holds after a reboot.  Thanks!

Re: Multi Radio Set Up In AC Log

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for the report. The only reason we can think of for the slowness is that the com port is not accessible. We appreciate your thoughts and observations.

Be well and enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Multi Radio Set Up In AC Log

Hi Scott, I am setting up AC Log for a multi radio configuration and came across a few things that might be able to be address within coding.

The scenario below is with a Yaesu FT991A and a Kenwood TS 2000X set up in AC Log as a multi radio and the Kenwood not being plugged in at the time the issues were noticed.


1. N3FJP is slow to load when radio is not active and plugged into com port 
(Com port 7 is not active on computer)

2. N3FJP halts radio rig interface at old existing radio build (Kenwood TS 2000) and does not revert back to previous active radio ( Yaesu FT 991A) with active com port

3. N3FJP multi rig halts, and shows inactive rig (Kenwood TS 2000 com 7,not active) and does not allow radio swap (ctrl+x) to switch to active radio

4. N3FJP multi rig does not poll in order (Radio 1 should be active and polled first, radio 2 if not plugged in should be ignored since com port is not active)


I currently use a Yaesu 991A and a Kenwood TS 2000X.  The 991A uses comport 3, and the Kenwood uses com 7.  If I have my Kenwood off and unplugged, com 7 does not exist and is not in use. My 991A is connected, and stays as com 3, and won't default or poll to the correct radio and attempts to use the Kenwood Com 7 port as active and throws an error.

If selected rig is my active radio (991A) then there are no issues with loading, or polling.  If the Kenwood is selected as rig (not in multi rig), the program basically grinds to a halt.


Thanks for all that you guys do for us!!!

ACLOG view for vertical monitor #setup

Jon Hult
 

Fantastic program and thanks for all the hard work that went into making this one of the best loggers out there!

Due to shack "rearrange", I have one of two computer monitors in the "vertical" orientation.  Up to this point, both monitors have been viewed horizontally.  For reference, ACLOG would always start up on the monitor that I switched to vertical orientation.  For reasons passing understanding, ACLOG is stuck in vertical viewing and when I push it to the other monitor (horizontal) it stays in vertical mode.  ACLOG is barely readable now even on the vertically oriented monitor.

I did do a search here first; nothing to same topic and I've been in every menu that would be close to this issue.  How do I return ACLOG to return to "normal" or horizontal view?  All other programs on the PC are fine.  Thanks to anyone who has the answer!  73's.

That sounds like you need to reset the radio's microprocessor.

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for your e-mail. We have not had any other reports on that specific rig, but please try the Yaesu-Newer 2 options and see how that works for you.

Be well and enjoy!

Hello, I've been a user of ACL for years but just got a new radio, the Yaesu FT-DX10, that has been out on a couple of months.  I used the "yeasu-newer" settngs and that works fine with one odd quirk.  The logging program sees my radio frequency exactly one-tenth of what it really is!  40m now reads as the 560m band.  Any ideas what I've got wrong?  Many thanks, Wayne de K4WK
