Guys,
I am like Dee. I just upload to LOTW and thins work ok for me also. The confirmed by field sometimes does not have an L in it when I can see on the arrl site that indeed the QSO is confirmed.
CU all next weekend in the SSCW test.

Hello,

I have a number of logged QSO's that do not show up in Logbook of the
World. Friends of
mine mention that I append my ACLog contacts with LoTH. I am told that
this can only be
done once. I have no information about this and would like guidance.
Any help would
appreciated.

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

I have set this group up so that all can post for the purpose of discussing the use, features and future enhancements of N3FJP Software.

If you ONLY want to be notified of e-mail announcements from me, N3FJP, this is NOT the group you want to subscribe to. I'll post announcements here too, but you will also receive responses and discussion from other group members.

The announcements only group will keep e-mail to an absolute minimum. To subscribe to the "Announcements from N3FJP Only" group, please send a blank e-mail to:

N3FJP_Software-subscribe@...

or visit:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/N3FJP_Software/

If you wish to participate in discussions with other users of N3FJP software, this is the group to subscribe to.

Welcome aboard!

CW Spacing

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

First, I want to thank you all for joining the N3FJP_Software_Users group in addition to the N3FJP_Software ("announcement") group.  The other "announcement" group should work well for sending out information, but this group will be especially useful for me to seek ideas and input from you.

As expected, this group is much smaller than the "announcement" group, and I think that is good.  Of course all are welcome, but I think that a smaller core discussion group will work out well.

CW Spacing

I have received some requests for additional control over the CW spacing that my programs generate.  As you know, right now the only control is speed.  I have started with ACLog to add additional spacing control.

This enhancement is not yet available for download or added to the contesting programs.  Retrofitting over 30 programs is a BIG job, so before I do I would love to get some feedback from you on whether the modification as is goes far enough, or if it needs to be fine tuned even further.

Anyone who has ACLog version 2.3 installed, uses the CW feature with ACLog or any of my contesting software and would like to evaluate the modification, please send me an e-mail.  The following will happen:

- I will e-mail you the .exe file.  You will replace the existing file in c:\program files\aclog23 with the file I e-mail.

- Give it a whirl.  Try adjusting the spacing at different speeds and see what you think.  After you have a feel for it then let me know what you think.

As always, all your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are very much appreciated.

Any future plans for software support for the new 60 meter band?

Hi Eddie,

It doesn't sounds as if 60 Meters is going to be included in the contests any time soon.  Other than adding 60 to the band drop down list on ACLog, I'm not sure there is too much to do for support.

As always, suggestions are welcome.

VHF Log and grid squares

Tim <tim@...>
 

Hello Scott!
I used VHF log over this past weekend in the June contest... it made my life so much easier.  One question:
Have you ever thought about expanding on the grid square view in the lower right corner?  I found that a lot of grids that I had worked didn't show as they were outside the group of grids that show in the existing view.
This is just a question... I love the software otherwise!
 
73 de Tim, N4TSS


Re: VHF Log and grid squares

Scott Davis
 

Hi Tim,

Yes, I'm glad you asked. I've had a couple of requests for a larger grid map and there are a couple of ways to go.

As you know, I've already allocated as much room to the main form for the map as I can. To enhance the display I can:

- Add 4 arrow keys (North, South, East and West) so that you can "scroll" through additional area.

Advantage - You don't have to leave the main form (fewer keystrokes/clicks)

Disadvantage - The only way to see additional area is by scrolling.

- Add another full screen form to display the larger map area.

Advantage - You will be able to see a larger area at one time.

Disadvantage - The map won't constantly be displayed. You will have to open and close it each time you wish to view it.

- Provide both options.

I'd love to hear comments from the group on your preferences. All suggestions are welcome!

I like the arrow suggestion.. I also used the VHF contest software
and really liked the speed in which it worked..


Re: VHF Log and grid squares

Tim <tim@...>
 

Scott,
Thank you for the quick response!! I vote for both.. I like the idea of
being able to see the whole map (or at least more of it) full screen once in
a while, (maybe while the band is dead), while having the scroll feature
would be great while "on the hunt".
Thanks again for producing great software!

Grid display

Eddie Wallace <kg4efr@...>
 

Maybe a map showing the grids, and maybe use color to show which grids
are worked? Kinda like the lastest release of Field Day with the
sections map that fill the worked section in with color??? That could
be cool . . .

Eddie KG4EFR


Re: Grid display

Scott Davis
 

Thanks for the suggestions. The outline maps are cool, and I'd like to use them as much as I can. So far they have been added to Field Day, November Sweepstakes and each of the State QSO Party programs. They will definitely be in future versions of ACLog.

The problem with the maps is that they have to be physically drawn (which has been keeping Kim, KA3SEQ off the streets lately). Since different geographical areas will be of interest for each VHF user, I'm not sure how I would approach outline maps for the VHF contest. It is a great idea and I wish I could, but barring a brain storm I'll probably focus on the grid display.

Please let me know what else comes to mind.

Re: SMIRK Contest Software

Hi Dave,

I eventually hope to support as many contests as I can.  Right now, the number one request is clearly the PA QSO party and I've been working on that one the last few weeks.  These programs take quite a bit of time, but I'm cranking them out as quickly as I can.

Thanks for the request.  I keep a file of requests and use them to help decide what is next on a very long list!

Suggestion for ACLog

jpasquini9
 

Hello!

I have a suggestion for ACLog 2.3...

After spending some time this morning setting up my fields and tabs,
it occured to be how much easier it would be if the program (while
in design mode) had a "snap to grid" function. Such a function
would make custom placement of the fields on the screen a little
cleaner.

Keep up the good work with your programs, especially ACLog. I
always enjoy using it!

73 de Joe, N2NOU


Re: VHF Log and grid squares

David Lines <dave@...>
 

I second the motion. The way the bands were open last contest, I frequently
was working areas not displayed on the screen. It would also be neat to see
the whole picture.

Thanks for your hard work, and for being open to suggestions.

CW Interface Working

k4drq <k4drq@...>
 

It was the PC.

I loaded the program on an old PII 233mhz, W95 system, and it came up
working immediately.

For those of you who encounter a problem like mine, and who might
benefit from some voltage/current data, here is what I measured for
my future reference:

My TS-850 measures +7.4vdc with the key open.
when keyed, the circuit draws 1.5ma from the ts-850.

My cw interface requires 4.5vdc to drive the
2n2222 into enough condution to key the ts-850;
at that point, the interface circuit draws
0.8ma from the keying source. I performed these
tests using a variable DC supply for keying
the cw interface.

I put a scope on the interface input from the PC, and observed
-10vdc unkeyed and +10vdc when keyed by the program on the
old PC.
