Thanks, Scott. I have no (apparent) problem with the send side. Log shows I haven't received only a couple of QSLs since the beginning of the year.

Having trouble logging to EQF #announcement

David Tucker
 

I N3EQP set to hear codes from WSJT-x. Ailso have the set up in WSJT-x as before.
Every time I make a qso it says unable to  log but saves it the logfile of WSKT-x.
Any help would be appreciated

Here's my  belt and suspenders log path...

I log each contact to ACLog (N3FJP). Then...
I upload to LoTW at the end of the session. Then...
At the end of the day I download any confirmed or accepted LoTW files back into ACLog to update the ACLog entries. Then.....
I import the LoTW updates into my QRZ log directly from LoTW with a couple of easy key strokes. Then...
Each night when I close my ACLog it automatically saves the ACLog mdb file to my DropBox account.
Occasionally I will upload my log to eQSL for any folks that prefer that logging technique.

The mdb file in my DropBox account is my primary backup file stored offsite. If a disaster happens (i.e. Fire, theft, tornado or computer failure etc.) I can easily get my ACLog file back in the original file format that ACLog understands.

I had to doublecheck to make sure I had written your message.  I basically do the same thing except I upload to eQSL after each session and I occasionally upload to QRZ for those who use that.  I also upload to Clublog after each session so I can see what I have worked, confirmed, and Verified.

I'm glad I bought a bunch of those books when I placed my last order, but I'm always a bit surprised by the number of hams who still write down their QSOs.  I'd have thought most everybody would be using logging programs by now, but that's not the case.

“Focus on the signal… not the noise”


Re: QSL S and R

Scott Davis
 

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your follow up.  You hadn't mentioned in your initial post that you had done an All Since download.  In fact, not doing a subsequent download is the number one reason, by far, for folks not receiving confirmations.  More details on that are here:


https://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q32

For your records to be marked as Sent to LoTW in AC Log (L in the Sent Confirmed By field), the following criteria must be met:

1. Your records must be successfully uploaded to LoTW.
2. Your records must be successfully downloaded from LoTW
3. The callsign must match the call of the station worked.
4. The band must match the band of the station worked.
5. The date and time in AC Log must match the date and time on the LoTW record.

Note that to speed processing, once AC Log finds a match, it doesn't continue searching your log for more matches, so if you have two or more contacts with the same station on the same band at the same time (such as working county line stations in a state QSO party), only one of the QSOs will be automatically marked.  When that occurs, just edit the unmarked contact and mark it manually.

Enjoy!

73, Scott

Re: Armed Forces QSL

I know I never sent any part of the message when I returned to the hobby after a 15-year break and I received QSLs that year.  Also, as I wrote in my previous message, the box that had the question about the Sec. of Defense's message didn't appear to be a required answer.  I sent the QSL request without a message and it went off on its merry way.  If I get some QSLs back I'll write a message to the group in case this question ever comes up again.

I had heard or read that a station in Alaska was used but I don't see one in the station list.  If anybody knows what station was used I'd appreciate it for next year.  With increasing solar activity I hope to work Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and maybe even Camp Foster Okinawa next year.  I'll also be prepared for the Sec. of Defense's  message.

By chance I tuned into the CW broadcast, but it was already underway. I copied what I heard in my head, but I have no recollection of that transmission other than a bunch of platitudes. 

A little while ago, I noticed that question did not have a red star which means it was NOT required.  So I sent in what I had filled out and I'll hope for the best.  When I got back into the hobby back in 2010, I was on for AFD and I have a few QSLs for the event. I know I did not listen to the Sec of DoDs broadcast. I just worked a few stations.

Thanks for the clarification. It was appreciated.
