Ummmm - AC-Log is a general logger- NOT a Field Day logger. Two separate programs, or did I miss something?

Re: FD logging question

If and if there is a change, it would because of the change of logging the "D" to "D" stations. (I think that what they changed)
  I don't know how that was handled in the program last year. (Did not affect me)

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your e-mail.  You didn't indicate which service you are referencing, but assuming LoTW, you have to do a download later on before your records are marked appropriately.  Lots more details are here:

Re: Import ADIF from MLDX into ACLog ignores date field

Scott Davis
 

Hi Ted,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  For the date to import properly, it must conform to ADIF format specifications.  To see the date format that AC Log is expecting, go ahead and export a record from AC Log and open it in Notepad.  Alternatively, you can check the ADIF specification here:

https://www.adif.org/312/ADIF_312.htm#Date

A properly formatted QSO date will look like this:

<QSO_Date:8>20210507

Since you were successfully able to import into N1MM, you could try then exporting from N1MM, using that file to import to AC Log and see if that corrects the problem.

Be well and enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Import ADIF from MLDX into ACLog ignores date field

I decided to import the entries from my MacLoggerDX log program on my Mac into ACLog, so I could more easily log JS8Call QSOs using ACLog using Win10 on Parallels. So far so good - JS8Call integrates nicely with FDLog and ACLog.

Now the problem - when I import the ADIF file created with MLDX, the resulting ACLog database ends up with all QSO dates set to 0001/01/01 :-( I have verified the ADIF file contains the QSO date, and when I import into N1MM+, all is well.

What am I doing wrong? Or is there a problem?

The exchange is different, and probably won’t work.

N1MM+ using a UDC file is probably your best bet.

Thank you for your long explanation. I am a big supporter of N3FJP programs. My question was sometimes the name of a contest is not the same name that is used in N3FJP. So what I was asking was if you did support the contest, waht was then name of  you program. I understand your need to only develop software that will be used by many contesters.

Thanks again for your wonderful product suite.

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your e-mail. We do not support that contest at this time.

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.

While we are not looking to add too many more straws to the back of this camel, I will give it some thought for the future.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Be well and enjoy!

Re: Full Name for Fill Fields

Ara Kourchians <dotuplink@...>
 

Hi Mitch,

Ah, I should have been more specific. On QRZ, the "Operator Name" field name gets populated with whatever the "Name" field is on ACLOG. If I were to add a callsign on QRZ, the "Operator Name" field gets populated with their full name, but if I were to import my contacts from ACLOG (after using the Fill Fields function), it only populates "Operator Name" with the first name since that's what ACLOG pulls. 

I think there's a subtle mismatch in how information is populated and interpreted between ACLOG and QRZ for a given input callsign (i.e. - COMMENTS are just used for comments rather than full name/address in QRZ). Not that it's an issue, but rather a discrepancy between how things are done between the two programs.

Anyway, sounds like there's no quick way to fix this, so that's fine. Figured I'd ask just in case I missed the setting.

Thanks,
Ara
