well dee i hate to be anal but what port are you talking about....if you are
refering to the serial port....i had the pins swapped IAW the print ont
n3fjp web site....i turned the pos. and neg. around....if you are talking
about the parallel port you are going to need a optic isolator for the
interface rig....i have a print for that but i cant find the parts to put it
togeather.....for the opic iso look on the arci qrp web page under the dupe
logging program and the have a pic of an opic isolater.....hope this answers
your Q....the interface for the serial port WILL NOT WORK on the parallel
port.....if you need more info let me know...72's....oo

hey jim...you hit the f12 key and you can send code through the
keyboard....it worked for me.....i didnt like it so much.... but it was
all
right....went to radio shack and got all the supplies for about 18.00.....
it took me about 2 hours to make and test the rig.....i made the mistake
of
tring to make the interface on the 25 pin lpt1 port first ....insted i
went
to the 9 pin com 2 port and all went ok......i also ran into the problem
of
having a continual key and the cw was back wards....i turned the input
pins
around and it solved the problem...works great and now im ready for
FD...good luck

What precisely did you do when you "turned the input pins around"? I'm
having the same continual key and backwards CW but don't understand how you
fixed it.

few questions

Hello:

A few questions:

a)  Ver. 2.4: Why not convert QSO RECORD # in a true field instead of a counter?

b) Are out your plans sometimes add  code, for allow user select the individual fields

"that they would like to print" instead to user any spreadsheet;

Thank You.

Re: few questions

Hi Radhames,

The QSO# identifies the record.  It is not user modifiable.

Thanks for your printing suggestion.  Printing enhancements are on the list for future enhancements.

Hey Scott,

Thanks for the reply. I'll be waiting patiently for the 2.4 release :-) If
there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hi Matt,

It is really hard to predict. Sometimes a section of code that I think
will take only an hour to write doesn't work out as expected and a day is
"lost" coming up with an alternative. Other times things fall right into
place. I'm shooting for the end of August or early September, but the
window is pretty wide. I am spending every available minute I have on the
project.

I am trying to test as much as I can during the development. I'm not sure
if I will release 2.4 as a beta first or not, but I REALLY appreciate your
offer for testing. In fact, I can't thank this group enough for all your
help and support. I really appreciate it.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your e-mail.

I had a number of requests for that feature following our switch to
daylight time this past spring. I have added code in version 2.4 so that
ACLog will check your system clock on startup and alert you if your UTC
offset requires adjustment. In addition to always being excited about
making new ACLog enhancements available, I have quite a sense of urgency
to
make ACLog 2.4 available before the time change for that very reason.

As most of you know, I have already completed the CW enhancements and
am
now working on the RAM data management. The RAM features are going to add
a
good bit of snap to the program that I think everyone will like, but the
coding is taking quite a bit longer than I had originally thought. With
all
that in mind, I think the major upgrades to 2.4 will be focused on the CW
and performance enhancements. I've got lots of other suggestions on the
list and as soon as 2.4 is available I will continue working on the
additional enhancements.

Re: qso # field/print

Scott Davis
 

Hi Radhames,

Thanks for your e-mail.

The code for numerically sorting the QSO# field when clicking on the column header is already completed for version 2.4.

With 31 fields, printing a single line QSO entry would not be possible on 8 1/2" by 11" paper (unless the font was incredibly small). The long term goal is to add code so that users can select the individual fields that they would like to print, the order in which they appear, etc.

I haven't had too many requests for this feature and adding the code would be a BIG project. Since it is already so easy to create customized reports by using ACLog in conjunction with a spreadsheet, the log printing enhancment has not made it to the top of the "to do" list.

To create customized reports by using ACLog in conjunction with a spreadsheet:

- Click List, List All from ACLog's menu options
- Click Edit, Copy Current List to Clipboard
- Start your spreadsheet program and click Edit, Paste

You can then format, sort and print your log any way that you wish.

download the ACLog ready calldata from my website on the ACLog

Either way, don't try to import the data into ACLog.  Just set

Success reading freq and mode with Icom

k9plx@...
 

Problem solved -- already!

A HUGE thanks to David Whaley, NT9E, who replied with the suggestion that the problem probably was with the Comm port settings more than with the settings within ACLog itself. Sure enough... I went to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Ports > COM1 > Port Settings and set it for 19200 BPS, Data bits = 8, Parity = None, Stop bits = 1, and Flow control = None.

Then I went to the ACLog Rig Interface Setup window, set it for Comm Port 1, 19.2 K, Parity = None, Data bits = 8, Stop bits = 1, Connection power = DTR, and Polling rate = 100 ms (any speed works, I think). In the string to read frequency and string to read mode I made sure that the 3rd character was "58", which is the code for the 706MKIIG (the manual for the radio shows the code), and KAZOWIE! Everything worked!

Thanks again, David.

73, Chuck K9PLX


Re: Can't get ACLog to read freq & mode

JAMES MOLLICA <jim@...>
 

Hello Chuck. Had the same problem with my 706mk 2.
If I remember right I used 4800 N81 with 50 (IC756) in both strings and RTS.
Some of the other Icom codes also worked but fell apart on 50mhz or no mode
reading. I will check again when I get to the home qth.
73, Jim N2NRD.
P.S. I also set the polling rate at .5sec and the radio on "auto baud
detect."

Subject: [N3FJP_Software_Users] Can't get ACLog to read freq & mode


Greetings to the group.
I'm a long-time user of ACLog who has just purchased the cable to connect
my rig so I can read the frequency and mode directly into the log. I've
tried everything I can think of and so far am unsuccessful; I could sure use
some suggestions.

The setup: PC is an older model IBM ThinkPad laptop Pentium II running
Windows XP Professional. Rig is Icom IC706MarkIIG. I have the cable from
W1GEE and it is connected to the serial port of the PC and the remote jack
on the back of the 706.

In the Interface Setup window of ACLog, I have set to Comm Port 1, 19.2
baud (the rig is also set to 19.2), connection power to DTR (I've also tried
RTS). I've set the string to read frequency to "FE FE 58 E0 03 FD" and the
string to read the mode to "FE FE 58 E0 04 FD" (values come from the 706's
manual). Having no idea what the other values should be, I've tried them
all, I think.

The response is always "No Response" in the Frequency window, either "No
Response" or nothing at all in the Mode window, and a running string of
garbage, which changes as I change the tuning dial on the rig, in the
"Unprocessed data returned" window.

Does any other Icom owner have any hints for me?

Thanks,
Chuck, K9PLX
