Hi Ralph,

Thanks for your e-mail. Before searching on a specific band, please make sure that you have disabled rig interface for any searches that include band as part of the criteria.

I'm a new N3JFP Log user, only about 1,000 QSO's logged. 

From what I've seen in videos, from the main page I should be able to type in a band I'm interested in (in Band box), then click search and I should see all the contacts I made on 20M, but the results I get show all the band data.  What am I missing?

Re: Spots

Hi JoAnn,

Thanks for your e-mail. Mode is derived from frequency and not based on any comments. One option for you if you wish to display digital mode, from the menu options select Settings > DX Spotting > Configure > More filtering. On the form that displays, select the option to Display digital modes.

Be well and enjoy!

I seem to be spotted from time to time. When I look at the window at the bottom of ACLog is almost always says CW. If I open the Spots Config Window, I see the same spot but it says FT8. So how come the window at the bottom of the screen doesn't show the correct Mode?

Hi JoAnn,

Thanks for your e-mail. Sorry you have run into trouble. Sorry I have not had that error here, nor have had any similar reports. I do not know what would be causing that. If you can identify a cause that I can try to duplicate here, please let me know.

Re: Curiosity question

Hi Russ,

Thanks for your e-mal and kind words. Yes, there is a reason! Sometimes folks want to create CSV and other related text formats of their log, and these characters will create problems for them when importing to other applications.

Be well and enjoy!

Hi,

First off, love the software.  Bought the suite for contesting and never thought I would have an interest or need for everyday logging.  ACL was just a throw-in.....so I thought.   What a great program.  It’s hard to imagine being without it.  
This isn’t a complaint just a curiosity question.   In the Comments box, it will not accept these symbols   ‘ or “
from my keyboard.  Is there a reason for that?   No big deal.  Just wondering.  
73 and thanks for a great product !

Re: time format on logging program

John Huber
 

I concur with the suggestion that ACLog, and eventually all the various logging programs, display the local time in the format defined the user.  This would be the format that can be set via Settings->Time & Language-> Date, time & regional formatting->Change data formats->Long time.  It seems logical that the the user specified long time format is what the user prefers, as opposed to the ACLog default of hh:mm:ss AM/PM.

I love working with your logs because they simplify the logging process and calculate my points automatically and convert to the form needed.
Thanks for pointing out the differences and why  using the ACL  and trying to adapt it to a contest that doesn't have your log specifically completed will typically not work.
I hadn't thought of all the nuances with points, multipliers, etc.
Thanks for all the hard work.

Re: ALC LOG FOR BARTG Contest5

Scott Davis
 

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your e-mail.

All of our contesting software is contest specific. Each program is specifically designed with one contest in mind. You are of course free to use the programs for any contests that you like, but finding an existing program that will support another contest will be quite difficult.

Even if you find an existing program with an identical exchange, there are other parameters you'll have to check as well. For example, are the points counted the same per mode? Do you work the station once, once per band, once per mode or once per band and mode? Will the existing program create a Cabrillo file that the contest sponsors for the other contest will accept? What are the multipliers - states, sections, countries, counties. etc? Are multipliers counted once, once per band, once per mode, or once per band and mode. The list goes on!

As you can see, there is a lot more that goes into preparing Amateur Radio contesting software in addition to logging a specific exchange. I'm doing my best to create contest specific applications that each perform their intended function very well, so they generally are not adaptable to other contests for which they were not designed.

If there is a contest that you are interested in that I currently don't support, please touch base and let me know. One of the criteria for adding contests to my future projects list is the amount of interest users have for a particular contest!

Be well and enjoy!

I have heard people get QSL or LoTW Confirms years, many years later.

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

Re: Contacts Not Confirmed

Cray / K5MUG
 

GE Bob/N8VWQ:

Seems you have very good advice so far and I will offer my thoughts from my experiences relating to contributions already given.

I returned on the air in early 2014, I'm still receiving on-line (LoTW, Qrz, eQsl, etc.) confirmations from early 2014 on up.  Some operators are just starting to switch their written log(s) from mail-out to on-line Qsl's, quite a few expeditions and some DX are still catching up and (may be for years more) for on-line and mail-out Qsl's.  Written logs are not required currently, so some that were not logging are starting, or returning to, written logs and uploading to various Qsl confirmation sites.

Also, keep in mind that all operators do not use LoTW, likewise for the others; I upload to LoTW primarily, and also Qrz, and eQsl for that reason.  I have only used a few Awards from LoTW but also upload for ops who only use other on-line confirmation sites that may not interface and are not compatible with LoTW.

Except for deleting positively known errors, you (and some of those you have logged) probably will be losing out on a lot of confirmations.  It's not an every day event but current reports of Qsl confirmation's from the 70's thru the 2000's aren't unheard of.

Good luck, take care, and enjoy,
73/72,
Cray / K5MUG
