locked Re: Adding Optical Scanning for QSL Cards - Disaster Recovery

Danny Bush
 

Saving Logs to "The Cloud" needs to be done separate from any of the current logging software used these days...especially N3FJP and N1MM. It is a PROVEN fact that allowing your software to store and run from the cloud WILL end up corrupted! There are literally hundreds of threads about this very topic in the Reflectors for both of the mentioned logging software...and I speak from first hand knowledge.
 
It is Highly suggested that "One Drive" and any other cloud service you use, be removed or no where near your operating software. Do yourself and search the topic, you'll get the dictionary on corruption.

This is just a "shoot from the hip" idea... I'm thinking of a disaster recovery scenario but it has other uses as well.

Of course, we all save a copy of our log files "in the cloud," right?  (Say yes.  If you don't, get on it.  All your important data needs to be stored 'off site' in some way.)

But what about our paper QSL cards?  I know some hams scan both sides of each card into a PDF file so at least they can be saved on a computer, and stored off-site.  There's a significant investment in these cards and they're important to our hobby.

As I was thinking on embarking on scanning 40 some odd years of cards, I was thinking it would be nice if the image file was somehow linked to its record in my log book.  Click on the logbook entry, data pops up along with an image of the QSL card!

My understanding is there are plenty of drivers and API's for scanners, so integrating into ACLog probably would not be that difficult.  It's just a matter of storing the image file along with the log file in some way.

I'm not a programmer or I would help!

It's just an idea, so feel free to shoot me down, but I think it would add a lot of value.

Re: jtdx / GridTracker Logging

Scott Davis
 

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I've not ever used Grid Tracker here, but if the Grid Tracker developers set GT to use the CALLTAB event as detailed here, the callbook lookup will be initiated:

http://www.n3fjp.com/help/api.html

It is also possible that when they send data they may overwrite the existing callbook retrieval.

If you interface directly from my software to WSJT without intermediary, when the call is filled, the lookup is consistently enabled.  I have been using that here extensively with great success.  Details on that are here:

http://www.n3fjp.com/help/digitalsetup.html#wsjtx

To fill missing fields, from AC Log's menu options click Edit > Fill Fields Determined by Call.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] jtdx / GridTracker Logging

When I use the above programs for FT8 and log the contact from jtdx into ACLog, the data pulled from QRZ by ACLog is often incomplete.  I can have several contacts in a row fill in the complete name and 6-digit grid then several that only retrieve the first name and 4-digit grid.  Sometimes random fields are not filled like county, state or country.  Is there a setting that I need to tweak in ACLog, jtdx or GridTracker?

Thanks for a great program and any help with this question.

Re: Can't get my Icom 7300 to interface with software

jsnead1953@gmail.com
 

Got it to work over the weekend.  Using he CI-V jack.  The baud rate setting was not correct—could have sworn I had it right…

 

Anyway, it works great.  DX spotting is the cat’s paws.  I’m not a computer guy but the 7300 and this software may make me rethink that.  Scott and Kimberly have done some impressive work with this software.

 

Thanks to everyone!

Had an issue after one of the last updates, I found the error was on the radio side and not the software side.

 

Not discounting any of the advice above but also check the link unlink on the radio and see if that helps, it fixed my issue in the 7300

Jerry,

Here are my settings in the 7300:

Menu - CI-V
Baud Rate - lock down don't use Auto. Mine is set for 19200.
USB Port - UNLINK
USB Baud Rate - again, lock down don't use Auto. Mine is set at 115200.
Echo Back - ON

Menu Serial Function - CI-V

Be absolutely certain that the baud rate in the radio matches the baud rate in ACLog. You may have to restart both the 7300 and ACLog after making the changes.

Hope this helps.

Re: VHF contest contacts not being counted

Steve J. Noll, WA6EJO
 

I ended up using https://b4h.net/cabforms/ to send in my entry. Much less confusing and score ended up being correct. There certainly is a mess in how different outfits use different nomenclature, exspecially for the upper bands. Is it 5 cm or 5.8 or 5.9? and .5 mm seemed to be a no-go.


Re: Mode on Cabrillo File for VHF Contest Log Version 6.6

Steve R
 

Thanks Scott...I was not aware of mode override. I did not have time to set up rig control since this was a new laptop.

I used find and replace in the Cabrillo this time (RY to DG). Uploaded to ARRL no problem.

Re: Mode on Cabrillo File for VHF Contest Log Version 6.6

Scott Davis
 

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your e-mail.  RY designates RTTY and DG designates other digital modes.  If you only logged as digital without rig interface returning the proper mode, or didn't use the Mode Override option (Mode > Mode Override), the software will default to RY.  

You can export the data in ADIF, correct the Mode field (NOT the ModeTST field - leave that as DIG) and reimport.

Enjoy!

I wrote my Cabrillo file for upload and observed that all my DIG contacts were written as RY not DG. Was there a setting that I missed before writing?  I can run a find and replace easily just wondered if I missed something. I did not see this for the WFD log. 
(BTW the adi files were written correctly as mode DIG).
