ACLog Screen Snapshots

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

Eddie, KG4EFR, sent me a very cool ACLog screen shot configuration (see the forwarded message below).  I thought it would be fun to add a web page showing different configurations that users have come up with.  If you have a layout or color scheme that you really like, please take a screen shot and send it along. 

Thanks!

Re: CW interface capabilities

Scott Davis
 

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your e-mail.

Yes, by pressing the F12 key you enter "keyboard" mode.  Each character that you type is sent.  When you want to exit and return to logging, just press F12 again.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

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

Re: cw speed indicator for the fd logging program

Scott Davis
 

Hi Huel,

The CW speed is dependent on the processor speed.  The faster your processor, the higher the number.  My old 75Mhz machine sounds good at the 7-10 range!

It would be nice to know what number to set it to for

Ham Call access from Hard Drive

Bill McCourt <wf1l@...>
 

Hi Scott,

Not wishing to leave my HamCall CD in the drive, I installed the
software onto my hard drive, but ACLog doesn't seem to want to
extract the log info from that location (C drive/HamCall folder).
What file is ACLog looking for on the CD so I can possibly add the
correct name to the pathway that I type in?

Just set up the DX Spotting feature after getting a broadband
connection run to my shack computer. Neato!

Re: Ham Call access from Hard Drive

Scott Davis
 

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.

To use the Hamcall data on your hard drive, just set the directory to C (don't enter a colon or &#92;, just the letter). That should do the trick.

Thanks for your kind words on the DX spotting feature!

Ten Tec Orion Rig Interface

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

Just a quick note to let you know that I have just added code for rig interface with the Ten Tec Orion. It isn’t up on the website yet, but if you are planning to use an Orion for Field Day and wanted to take advantage of the rig interface features I’ll be glad to e-mail you the exe file. Just send me an e-mail and let me know if you need the stand-alone or network version of the exe file.

Re: Rotor Control

Hi Lawrence,

Thanks for your e-mail.  No ACLog does not provide rotor control at this time.  I'll certainly keep that in mind for the future.

Re: CallBook Lookup

Scott Davis
 

Hi Fernando,

Yes, I definitely plan to add a feature in the next ACLog revision to fill in missing data, however, ACLog will print address labels for QSL cards now if that is what you would like to do.  Just select the record(s) you want to print addresses for and then click print address.  The address for each call will be looked up and printed.

Rig Control - IC-756 Pro II with CT17

Might interest IC-756 Pro Users. ACLog 2.3 works just fine with the

Baud rate 19200

String to read frequency FE FE 64 E0 03 FD
String to read mode FE FE 64 E0 04 FD

realtime eQSL support

Matt Patterson
 

This may have already been asked but was wondering if there are any
plans to add realtime eQSL log entry submission capability to
ACLog. In other words, the ability to right click on a entry then
have the option to send it directly to eQSL.


Thanks!
Matt


Re: realtime eQSL support

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the suggestion. I have received a couple of requests for that feature but not too many. With all the other items on the agenda it may not make the next revision.

Re: Incorrect time stamp on FD Netowork 1.7

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the report.  Keep in mind that the time of the contact is based on the clock of the PC that entered the record.  If one of the PC's did not have the clock properly set then the contacts from that PC will not have a valid time.  If there weren't too many then it is quite possible that the operator corrected the time problem.

The time written to the ASCII Log file is the same data that is recorded in your log.  You can click List All to view and edit your complete log.  Odds are that any date problems will be at the bottom of the log since it is sorted on date.

You only have to submit the dupe and summary files for your Field Day submittal, so odds are everything is fine.  I do plan to add a feature for next year to allow the clocks of all the PC's on the network to be synchronized.

Thanks for your kind words on the software.  I really appreciate it.

The time on the computer was correct, the UTC offset was correct,

Then later down the log these two entries were one after the other;

1980/01/04  19:51:01 
2003/06/28  18:18:29

Then from that point on it kept (I am assuming) correct time.  I
never turned the laptop off or rebooted it for the duration of the
contest.  I did NOT run the program from a DOS prompt or command
screen, but installed and ran it straight from the menu in XP Pro.

Has anyone else seen this or have an idea?
