Hi Dennis,

Thanks for your e-mail. You will find more information here:

The AC Log bearing and distance doesn’t seem to work properly for stateside QSOs?

Is there anyway to make these three values be calculated from the info received from QRZ?
So that they are more precise.

Thanx John, I didnt even realize there was a contest ID field, since its normally off my screen.  Guess I'll move to where the default "other" column is.  And another thanx for the tip on qso party log manipulation.

An ADIF import of the raw (that is not altered at all) ADIF file exported from N1MM+ populates the ACLog "Contest-ID" field.  Is that not sufficient for some reason?  I have thousands of ACLog entries from N1MM+ and they have always populated the Contest-ID field for me.

For state QSO parties where county is part of the exchange, I process the N1MM+ ADIF file through the AD1C "ADIF County Conversion" tool to transform the contest logged county format to a valid ADIF "CNTY" field.  Then I import that into ACLog.

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.

Hi Jim,

Since you are importing an ADIF file, that is the easiest place to edit it. Open your adi file in Notepad. If the Comment field is there, it will be something like <COMMENT:0>. However, if it is blank, it likely will not be there at all. Here are the steps to add your requested field:

-Open the file in Notepad
-At the end of the first contact, highlight <EOR>
-Hit ctrl-H, <EOR> should show up in the Find what box
-In the Replace with box, enter <COMMENT:7>WWCW DX <EOR>
-Click the Replace All button
-Click Cancel to close the Replace box
-Save the file and close Notepad
-Import the corrected file into ACLog

All the imported contacts should now show WWCW DX in the Comments section.

HTH,
73,
Michael WA7SKG

Re: Editing my Log

Larry Banks
 

Hi Jim,
 
I’m actually surprised that N1MM+ doesn’t have the ability to add a comment, however the ADIF fields for the two loggers could be different.  In the past when I have used N1MM (due to a lack of a certain contest in Scott’s suite) I have edited the N1MM ADIF with Notepad before importing it.  ADIF Master will also allow you to do this.  You could edit the N1MM+ ADIF for the ARRLDXCW and re-import it, or export the ADIF from ACLog, edit it, and re-import it.  Be sure to delete the Qs from ACLog before re-importing then so you don’t have dupes.
 
I also edit the ADIF from one of Scott’s contest logs when I am at my Maine QTH to add the location before importing it into my ACLog using Notepad.

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.

73,

Eden (Butch) McCollough...K3AFR
