If you use FLDigi try the general contest log.

You hit the mail on the head!  I knew I had seen it somewhere but couldn't remember where.

Thanks and 73's

Richard,

In WSJT-X when you log a contact, look at the pop-up log screen and adjust the power setting there.

That is most likely where you are getting your setting from on your FT8 calls using JTAlert from WSJT-X

Hi Richard,

 

Thanks for your e-mail. AC Log always defaults to the previously logged value. Just edit the most recent entry to the power level you want and subsequent QSOs you log from then on will remain the same until you change it.

Be well and enjoy!

I know that when I first set up the N3FJP logging software, it asked me (I think) if I wanted to make the power level the same in all logs entered.  If I log an SSB contact, the new power level is correct, but in ft8 using JALERT and WSJTX, it always shows an old power level.  Any thoughts on how to make the new power level persistent?

To go a little deeper, SIG and MY_SIG are not strictly necessary because we assume you know what program you are sending logs to. OTOH they are very handy for your use if you work more than one program.

Re: JTalert and AClog

Kevin Gray
 

Don,

There is a big difference in creating a backup on onedrive of dropbox (which works great) as apposed to having the actual log located at one of these location, which is where the original post appeared to be locating the log.

 

The API in ACLog actually doesn’t  communicate directly with WSJT-X.  JTAlert (or a comparable program) is the program that connects them together.

For what it is worth, I back up ACLog to Dropbox automatically all the time with no issues. I also doubt it is the cause of the original poster's problem. As someone else mentioned, the person may not have activated the API in ACLog to automatically log from WSJT-X when he or she switched computers.

Re: Contacts Not Confirmed

Frank Mellott
 

Great answer Dennis!

I only have 3600 or so log entries, and probably 90% are unconfirmed,
but they are still entries. If you know its a busted call or
something, i'd delete it, but if everything was good on your end, and
you LOTW, EQSL and send a card, you have done all you can do. If
nothing else, when the entry pops up Need QSL! you can simply move on
an make another contact that is more likely to QSL.

Just my $.02

Re: Contacts Not Confirmed

Just remember that someone can CONFIRM at any point/date/time...
I have only been licensed about a year and a half, and have had some year-old QSO's get confirmed.
I have heard people get QSL or LoTW Confirms years, many years later.

Not really taking up any space, just leave them there.

Hi,

I've looked for an answer to what I think is probably a noob question. Is there is any reason to keep contacts that have not been confirmed in a reasonable time? Seems like if a contact has not been confirmed it could be because of a problem with the info or a connection or computer problem. Erasing it would give me a chance to maybe contacting the person again and getting a confirmation

I am only guessing, but it seems to me that N3FJP logging storage was never intended to run on NAS drives or clouds for that matter. Good catch Kevin, N9VPV

I have never used ACL but am considering how I can log with ACL QSOs made with WSJT-X on FT-8 and HRD.  So this is one user with two applications feeding ACL which would be the main logging software database.  Suggestions?
