Hi All,

Chris, Kimberly and I have several announcements to share!

EU-DX Contest Log 1.0 is Now Available!

We just completed another brand new addition to the N3FJP Software suite!  EU-DX Contest Log 1.0 has all the features that you've come to expect in N3FJP Software. You will find our EU-DX Contest Log here:

https://www.n3fjp.com/eudx.html

As always, upgrades and additional programs that we add to our N3FJP Software package are free to registered package subscribers. You can request your updated password list that includes this new program here:

https://juliet.affirmatech.com/passwords


Amateur Contact Log 7.0.5 is Now Available!

For Amateur Contact Log, this is primarily a maintenance release to correct map pin locations for users in countries that use a comma instead of a decimal point, but there are a few other new goodies as well, including:

- Added ability to send CW via rig interface with ASCII to hex character conversion using {} to encase converted text (for rigs that support this feature, such as the Icom 7610).

On the CW setup form, using the RI: method with rigs like the Icom 7610, you can transmit characters and wild card contents by encasing the string to send (which must be converted from ASCII to HEX for some rigs) in curly brackets {TEXT TO SEND} like this:  RI:FEFE00E017{<CALL> <SERIAL> MDC}FD

- ADDADIFRECORD command for API (at the request of other developers, to enable additional interface functionality).

- Added Clear on QSY (Tune Away).  With a call in the call field, if you tune more than 400 Hz CW or 1 kHz SSB in either direction, the fields will clear.  You must click Setting > Rig Interface and select Clear on QSY to enable.

- On the Awards form, you can find the date range for records by clicking on the blue From Rec and To Rec labels.

You will find Amateur Contact Log here:

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

As always, upgrades are free to registered users.  If you are currently running a version of our software released after January 2021, AC Log should detect the new upgrade and offer to retrieve it for you on start.  If you have any problem with the automatic upgrade, or you are running an older version, you can follow these AC Log upgrade steps here:

https://www.n3fjp.com/upgradestepsaclog.html


Addition of Super Check Partial and Other Enhancements to Contest Software in Process!

Last time I let you know that Chris and I have completed coding for the new Super Check Partial ADIF upload method as requested by the SCP developer and we are now in the process of updating the rest of our contest software accordingly.  Lord willing, we plan to keep ahead of the major upcoming contests and have all the programs updated before the fall / winter contest season.  We have just released CQ WPX  4.9.3 and Field Day 6.6.3 with the new SCP upload feature, as well as the other applicable new enhancements, detailed above, in the AC Log enhancement list.  If you wish to submit your contest log to the SCP database, after exporting your log in ADIF, just click Settings > Super Check Partial to proceed.

If you aren't familiar with the Super Check Partial lookup feature that has existed in our contest software for years, it is well worth using!  Whether you are running a frequency or searching and pouncing, it is a great tool that adds additional confidence to the accuracy of the call sign you are logging. Just click Settings > Super Check Partial and follow the directions on the form that appears.  Lots more details on SCP are here:

https://www.supercheckpartial.com/

As always, upgrades are free to registered users!  Upgrade steps are provided in the AC Log section above.


WX Warn Now Included In Our Software Package!

And an extra bonus!  While WX Warn has always been free, it does require a registration to remove the ad space.  Our WX Warn software may be a bit long in the tooth and you will need to update some of the user customizable image default URLs, but the basic program still works fine and it is now included free for all package users!  You can request an updated password list that includes the WX Warn software anytime here:


And you will find the WX Warn software here:


Enjoy!


And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...    


Package Upgrade Information...   

If you have registered one or more individual programs and would like to upgrade to N3FJP's Software Package for full use of all our Amateur Radio software, we would be glad to apply the amount that you have registered so far as a credit towards that purchase. Please send us an e-mail directly and we'll let you know your balance.   

N3FJP's Software Package includes more than one hundred programs for contesting, net management and general logging Amateur Radio applications, as well as our WX Warn weather software!  In addition to full use of all these programs, registered package customers are also entitled to receive free passwords for any new software that we add to the package and free upgrades to existing programs. There are no annual / maintenance costs of any kind.  Simply register once and you are set with N3FJP Software for life!  You'll find all the details on the Register Now page here: 



Donations are Gratefully Accepted! 

And in response to the often asked question, for which Kimberly, Chris and I are very grateful...  

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"

Re: CW keying IC-7300

Scott Davis
 

Hi Al,

Thanks for your e-mail.  That feature is now being incorporated into the next releases of all our software, as we have added the ability to send CW via rig interface with ASCII to hex character conversion using {} to encase converted text (for rigs that support this feature, such as the Icom 7610).

On the CW setup form, using the RI: method with rigs like the Icom 7610, you can transmit characters and wild card contents by encasing the string to send (which must be converted from ASCII to HEX for some rigs) in curly brackets {TEXT TO SEND} like this:  RI:FEFE00E017{<CALL> <SERIAL> MDC}FD

You may have to change the rig Id for your 7300.

Programs that support this feature currently include AC Log 7.0.5, CQ WPX 4.9.3 and Field Day 6.6.3.  More details are here:

I come to this forum looking for the answer to the same question. CW keying of the IC-7300 over USB CAT.

I would like to be able to send CW with ACLog on the 7300, but I have not been able to get it to do it.
I can use N1MM+ and it keys the rig through the single USB CAT interface, so it is possible. Both the CAT functions and the keying over DTR take place on the same COM port.

I would like to avoid needing an interface in between. I don't believe two cables should be needed, if the program supports it.

Subject: Re: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Weekly MST CW contest? Exchange Name and Ser Nr

To answer my own question, I guess the CWops Open module will work, just send name first in the CW memories since that is what most people will be expecting.  It's not a high-speed test (20-25 wpm max) so should be easy enough to TAB to log in whatever order people send the info.

Weekly MST CW contest? Exchange Name and Ser Nr

 

Is there a contest logging module that would work for the new weekly MST CW contests?

The exchange is NAME and then SERIAL NR.

Contest announcement and rules are below.

New MST Contest to start May 2, sponsored by the International CW Council (ICWC)
 
Here are the details:
 

MST Rules

 Times: Every Monday: 1300-1400Z and 1900-2000Z  STARTING MAY 2
Every Tuesday:  0300-0400Z
Code Speed: Please keep speeds at 20-25wpm and be willing to reduce your speed on request.
Power Levels: QRP (5W or less), LP (6W-100W), HP (Over 100W- maximum allowed for your station)
Frequencies: in KHZ. ICWC is following the bands plans of IARU.
160m: 1812-1828
80m: 3528-3550
40m: **See below for QRP frequency
7025-7040 in IARU region 1 (Europe, Africa, ME, North Asia)
7028-7050 in IARU region 2 (The Americas)
7015-7029 in IARU region 3 (S. Asia, E. Asia, Pacific)
20m: 14028-14050
15m: 21028-21050
10m: 28028-28050
**All IARU regions respect the QRP frequency of 7030 +/- 0.5khz where any running station (calling CQ) should be at 5 watts maximum
Exchange: Name and QSO serial number
Scoring: To be submitted to 3830scores.com website without logs. Keep logs available in your station.
The final score can be calculated by counting 1 point per QSO (work a station once per band only) and multiplying total points by the number of unique callsigns worked. Example:
If you had 75 QSOs on all bands with 40 unique call signs, your score is 75 x 40 = 3000.


Re: CW keying IC-7300

Al Gritzmacher
 

I come to this forum looking for the answer to the same question. CW keying of the IC-7300 over USB CAT.

I would like to be able to send CW with ACLog on the 7300, but I have not been able to get it to do it.

I can use N1MM+ and it keys the rig through the single USB CAT interface, so it is possible. Both the CAT functions and the keying over DTR take place on the same COM port.

I would like to avoid needing an interface in between. I don't believe two cables should be needed, if the program supports it.

Re: FTDX3000 Using N3FJP and SDRUNO

Jim...N3MVX
 

Hi Brian,
Glad to hear you got it working.
In one of the documents on the SDRPLAY site dealing with setting up a pan adapter it states, "DO NOT ENABLE ANYTHING ON THE CAT TAB!".  I am not sure, but it could be that the software is communicating through OMNI RIG (ORIG) and not directly through the serial port (CAT).

Hi Lee,

Thanks for your e-mail.  No, the AC Log Guide is VERY old and outdated.  You will find more current help for our software here:

Enjoy!

Thanks again, Jim.  This worked...I am curious though why the "enable and connect" box is UNCHECKED?  It definitely does NOT work with it checked.  This was my problem...I just assumed it always had to be checked.  I obviously don't understand what that radio button does ;)


Amateur Contact Log 7.0.5 Now & EU-DX Contest Log 1.0 on Website!

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

It will probably be Monday or Tuesday before we get the official announcement out and enable the automatic updater, but Amateur Contact Log 7.0.5 and  & EU-DX Contest Log 1.0 are now on the web site!

We've developed our EU-DX Contest Log to support the annual EU DX contest and added it to our package.  New program's added to our package are always free to registered users.  You can request an updated password list anytime here:

https://juliet.affirmatech.com/passwords

And the new EU DX software is here:

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


For Amateur Contact Log, this is primarily a maintenance release to correct map pin locations for users in countries that use a comma instead of a decimal point, but there are a few other new goodies as well, including:

- Added ability to send CW via rig interface with ASCII to hex character conversion using {} to encase converted text (for rigs that support this feature, such as the Icom 7610).

On the CW setup form, using the RI: method with rigs like the Icom 7610, you can transmit characters (and wild card contents) by encasing the string to send (which must be converted from ASCII to HEX) in curly brackets {TEXT TO SEND} like this:  RI:FEFE00E017{<CALL> <SERIAL> MDC}FD

- ADDADIFRECORD command for API (at the request of other developers).

- Added Clear on QSY (Tune Away).  With a call in the call field, if you tune more than 400 Hz CW or 1 kHz SSB in either direction, the fields will clear.  You must click Setting > Rig Interface and select Clear on QSY to enable.

- On the Awards form, you can find the date range for records by clicking on the blue From Rec and To Rec labels.

You will find Amateur Contact Log here:

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


And an extra bonus!  Our WX Warn software may be a bit long in the tooth and you will need to update some of the user customizable image default URLs, but the basic program still works fine and it is now included free for package users.  You can request an updated password list that includes the WX Warn software anytime here:

https://juliet.affirmatech.com/passwords

And you will find the WX Warn software here:

http://www.wxspots.com/wxwarn.htm

We will really appreciate it if you would please give the new logging programs a good look over the weekend and let us know if we missed anything obvious or otherwise before Monday.  Thanks in advance!


Enjoy!
