I worked EF0F/8 yesterday but when I logged it the country would not populate. Is it Spain as I expect? Or is Isla de la Palma it’s own entity? Or Door Number 3?

Re: frequency clears after ~40 seconds ARQP

Scott Davis
 

Hi Aaron,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  The most common causes of intermittent rig connection are RFI in the shack and lose cable connections.  An out of date device driver is also a possibility.

I hope that this helps.

Enjoy!

Re: frequency clears after ~40 seconds ARQP

That happened to me in the Indiana contest when the rig interface COM Port closed. Why did it close? I have no idea. It just did. And it did it quite a few times. Then for some reason stayed open for the rest of the contest.

frequency clears after ~40 seconds ARQP

@W0ADL
 

Greetings.  I'm having some trouble with ARQP (out of state).  I click on a spot and the red dot jumps there, and my Ic7300 tunes there.  But after about 40 seconds, the red dot disappears, and the frequency clears.  If I log a QSO at this point I get a warning that no frequency was logged.  I have to stop contesting and try to backtrack and figure out what the frequency was and manually fix it.

I am aware that you can log two counties by entering "CNTY1 + CNTY2" in the county box.  Had one this morning on the county line of 4 counties - I tried to enter it as HEM+HOW+LRV+SVR and the out of state ARQP log didn't like it.  Had to close and reopen the log.  Should this work or is the multiple county function limited to two counties?  (Juliet didn't know)

Re: QSL S and R

Scott Davis
 

Hi Jeff,

On the LoTW setup form, choose the option to display raw data and then do a download.  If there are QSO records in your download from LoTW that include this tag, but are not being marked as confirmed received, you will need to check the other marking criteria I sent in my previous reply:

<QSL_RCVD:1>Y

If you are not seeing the above for the QSO records in question, the LoTW server is indicating they are unconfirmed.

Enjoy!

Thanks for testing!  I used the WW Digi selection in WSJT-X, as the exchange is identical to ARRL International Digital.  Here are the successful settings that work fine here for WSJT-X when connected to ARRL International Digital:

OK... Open WSJT-X, Open the ARRL International Digital program.  Make an FT8 Q. 
Prompt me to log is on.  No automatic log on the logging program.  It does on AClog. 
There is no ARRL Digicontest in the Special Operating Activity - Settings Window. 
That’s it for me.

Hi All,
 
Hot off the presses, we now have a new program to support ARRL's New International Digital Contest, coming up in June, ready for testing!  In addition to all the features you have come to expect, that should be given a once over, being a digital contest, this program requires extra testing now, interfaced with with all the digital programs out there that you may decide to use.
 
We have briefly tested ARRL Digital with WSJT-X and N7YG Digital Engine, but much more thorough testing is needed.  Chris, Kimberly and I will very much appreciate it if you would please give this beta a really good workout over the next couple of days and let us know how you make out:

If you switching between N3FJP logs or starting new logs, you have to close down and restart WSJT after N3FJP starts up, make sure the same gridsquare is set in  N3FJP and WSJT.
