Re: ALC LOG FOR BARTG Contest5

Frank MacKenzie-Lamb <maclamb@...>
 

Why not use the API feature that will log your HRD BARG contacts in to ARRL RTTY Roundup?  After the contest, your have to calculate your score and edit the cabrillo file…..easy peasy.  I wish there was a N3FJP Barg software but I’m still happy

For BARTG I use the ARRL RTTY RU logger to ONLY check for dups as I work them using HRD DM780 and HRD LB since HRD does not "do contest" or dupe check and such as required for contests.  A quick copy and paste will put the contact in N3 for a dupe check before I screw up and call them again.  

HRD is my main program day to day logging, but I extensively use the N3 suite of contest loggers for everything else. I then export/import my contest log into HRD LB for archiving and LoTW checking.  However, on FT contests, I have WSJTx log to HRD LB and JTAlert log to N3.  Both logs are simultaneously updated.  Normal FT operation is WSJTx to JTAlert and JTAlert to HRD LB.

Re: Error message

you might try the JTAlert group for answers to JTAlert problems.

https://hamapps.groups.io/g/Support

here is a recent reply from that same question on that group : 

Does the QSO actually get logged in ACLog despite the error message?
  • If yes, see the Help File, "Frequently Asked Questions -> Warning about QSO not logged when it is logged" topic.

  • If No, see the Help File, "Settings -> Logging -> ACLog" topic. ACLog must be running and have its TCP API enabled.
  •  


Error message

Hi, new user here... I'm using ACLog and WSJT-X for FT8. I also have JTAlert for WSJT-X installed. It was working fine up until a few days ago. Now for some unknown reason JTAlert is giving me an error message.

The message that I'm getting is as follows:

ERROR Message: ACLog File: unable to confirm QSO Logged


Anybody has an idea of how to correct this problem?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you

What you're experiencing is definitely not a problem introduced by AC:Log.   I suspect WiFi but I don't want to tie up this group with a bunch of off topic troubleshooting exchanges.  We can summarize to everyone what is discovered later.

I have had the same issue as Microsoft doesn’t recognize n3fjp suite as legit so it clamps the controls down on it. I have just told it to allow after each block post install. May turn it off also.

The 9600 baud rate sounds suspiciously low. I suggest you check in the radio’s menu system to see what it is actually set at.

Sometime after one of Microsoft’s security updates I could no longer install contest logs and was getting an error message that Windows 10 could not locate the log file.  I reported this to Scott and it was surmised that the issue was with OneDrive.  I won’t go into the long process I went through with OneDrive but other applications had begun to exhibit strange behavior like failure to save or being unable to launch new apps after installing. 
This morning I discovered the culprit:  Windows Defender. 
The security update had activated Controlled Folder Access in Ransomware protection. 
I am running the current version of Windows 10 Professional.  
I turned off the Controlled Folder Access and now all is working.  Additional thanks to Matrix Games UK for helping debug Close Combat The Longest Day, an application that I was on the original development team for.

Re: Search question

Bob Willey K3RLW
 

For me, I am on 6.8.6.1
and I hit CLEAR to make sure all fields are clear,
put in Band    2 for 2m
Hit SEARCH
(I do NOT use Rig Control, set to NONE)

1,000 of 4,652 Records Listed.  Continue Listing?
Your search query is returning 4,652 records.  To continue listing, please click yes.

If you have Settings > List Matches for These Fields with Tab enabled, some fields, such as Country and State, can generate very large lists.  For faster response, you may wish to disable the automatic listing on tab for these fields.
Under Settings > List Matches with Tab Select

Call is checked
and Don't List Own Country (to speed listings on tab with large databases)

I unclicked Call
same results

I unclicked "Don't List Own Country"
same results

Settiings > Rig Interface    set to NONE

???
Am I doing something wrong?

If I click on Date entry field and it automatically inserts today's date,
and click on SEARCH
it brings back only today's call log entries
So SEARCH works on some fields

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.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] TIME ON Field

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

Re: Server Lock

JoAnn Donaldson
 

Doug,
    Thank you for the post. On my computer I can boot up and then start ACLog/Contest Log immediately after boot up and have it happen or it comes up fine. All modes of Sleep have been disabled.
     Once in a while, I do get a Defender Message about Local and Internet Connections but even that doesn't stop it. Also it doesn't do it every time I boot. Also, I can leave the computer up, have the screen shutdown, come back later, wiggle the mouse, the screen lights up, and ACLog is still running correctly. Once ACLog or Contest Log comes up with no Server Error or I do a restart if it does, it will function 100% until I turn off the computer.
