Hi Guys,

Aside from DX multipliers being limited to NA, isn't the NAQP software exchange and scoring exactly what you were looking for?

You are not paying attention. Scott did respond - through his wife, Kimberley. She said that they would give it some thought.

Hi Butch,
 
Make sure the other info entries are blank.  It will  search for the combination, I.E., perhaps a band and a county or state.

Thanks for the replies.  I wasn't aware of the rig interface needed to be turned off with, or that it is done with Ctrl-Shift-R.

After pressing Ctrl-Shift-R I get a message indicating 'Rig Interface Band and Mode Tracking Disabled' but a band search still doesn't seem to be working properly.  On some band searches I get a few (not all) my contacts on the requested band, and other bands a search produces nothing.  I still must be missing something.

TIME ON Field

Nigel Lemaire
 

When I click on a DX spotted station, my K3 is set to that station's frequency.  At that time the TIME ON field is populated.
Since calling DX stations sometimes takes a while to actually make the contact, I have a couple of questions -

When I click LOG CONTACT  is the TIME ON recomputed to the time that I logged that contact or does it retain the initial value?
If the latter, is there a way to force the TIME ON to be recomputed?

Thanks

I use Scott's CWT logger for the SST.  The scoring is a bit different.  But it is easy to work around.  You only get to count a state or dx as one multiplier.   So if you work two stations here in Oregon you only get to count one as a multiplier.  But since no one checks the logs and specific entries are sent in it really does not matter if your "score" is off a bit.  I think for this event the number of stations worked is more significant than the score.  go ahead and use the CWT.  Maybe someday Scott will be able to add a check box that tells the logger if you are in the CWT or the SST.  the logger will give you a score based upon the box checked.

Because that is the way databases work. They store and display records in the order entered. It is up to the user to do further manipulation to suit their needs. You already have the answer on how to do that. :)

Hi Harold,

After entering an entry into your log after the fact, i.e. not live during the QSO, click on "File" in the Menu bar, then click on "Sort on Date."  This will put all your belated entries in date/time order.

CQ WPX SSB Next Weekend = Great Club Score Practice for Field Day!

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

Just like Field Day last year, many club members will be operating from their individual stations again in 2021 and combining their scores under the temporary ARRL Field Day waiver rules.  Last year, lots of clubs used my free Club Score Processor software to see how each person in their group was doing in real time and everyone loved it.  Even more importantly than providing a real time, combined club score and club leaderboard, it is one of the great tools that keeps us together, sharing the experience virtually!

The Club Score Processor isn't just for Field Day.  In fact, we run it for all the major contests with our club, including CQ WPX, which also happens to be club contest eligible.  More details on the rules for CQ WPX are here:  https://www.cqwpx.com/rules.htm 
And my CQ WPX Logging software is here:  http://www.n3fjp.com/cqwpx.html

Once set up, the Club Score Processor is simple to run, but there are some configuration steps for first use.  With CQ WPX SSB coming up next weekend, this is a great opportunity to give the Club Score Processor a try for your group!  That way, you can work out the kinks with CQ WPX SSB, so you will be all set up and ready to roll when Field Day arrives!

The free Club Score Processor and all the setup details are here:

http://www.n3fjp.com/clubscore.html

I've written a good bit about how clubs can contest together virtually in previous posts in other ways as well.  The Club Score Processor is great to run for every contest, but that's not the only tool in the tool chest.  You'll find additional ideas, such as using a real time text chat room as your virtual clubhouse here:

http://n3fjp.com/news/news2020-05-06.html

Be sure to take advantage of CQ WPX SSB next weekend, not only because it is a great preparation opportunity for Field Day, but because it is a heck of a lot of fun!

I hope to work you in CQ WPX SSB next weekend!

I would like to know why if you add or update a contact it stays at the top pf the log. What I mean is I added a contact with a past date and when I put it in the log it stay at the top as if that was the most recent contact. Once I close the log and start it up again that contact is not in order with the date it was put in. For example: I do POTA and I work a station at K-8089 (Great Kills Park State Recreation Area) I log him. Check log next day on POTA site and he logs me twice K-8089 and now K-0680 (Gate Way Recreation). So if I add K-0680 with the same date/time as K-8089 It don't group. It stay at the top of the log. Is there a way to keep it in order?

Re: Search question

Hi (Name?), KF4HR,
 
I assume you have your rig connected to ACLog.  You probably need to disable the rig interface during your search:  CNTRL-SHIFT-R.   Do it again after your search to re-enable the interface.

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?

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: Search question

nb7o
 

I have many thousands of contacts in ACL.  It works here just fine.  One caveat.  You must have rig control set to none for it to properly work.  With rig control set the software stores the last band worked and will default to this band when you click in the band box.  With rig control turned off, click in band box and either type the band you want to review or use the pick list to select the band, and then click on the search button in the menu bar.

Another way to get a list of contacts by band is to click on the "Band" label for the band column above your contacts.  This will put the column in "ascii" numeric order based upon the band in that column.  ASCII order will put all of the numbers with a leading 1 first and then all the numbers with a leading 2 second, then all with a leading 3, etc.  you can then scroll down the list to the section of the log that has the band you are searching for.

For me it is easier to save my rig control once, then I can turn it off or on as I need very quickly.  Then to do what you want turn off the rig control, search for the band I want, then turn rig control back on.
