Help!

w1ech <w1ech@...>
 

I need help with my N3FJP Sweepstakes program. I have not used the
software before.

I recently received the CD, got my password, and loaded it.
It worked fine.

However, for some reason, I recently misplaced the shortcut on my
desktop and thought I had deleted the software, so I tried to REload
it!

That's when the trouble started. I found that I could open the
software and begin playing with it, until I tried to enter a call
worked, and then the CHECK in the second window. I would immediately
get "INVALID SECTION" in the large window below that and nothing else
would function.

I have tried several times to remove the software and reload it, but
must be doing something wrong.

Is there an instruction sheet for the CD?

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Thanks!

73,

Gary - W1ECH

With the W1GEE serial adapter I simply added a Radio Shack 2 to 1
stereo headphone adapter at the key jack of my Icom 740. I turn off
the internal keyer and plug the computer into one side and my keyer,
bug, or straight key into the other side. Obviously you can't use an
internal keyer with any external keying device, but the use of a
keyer or a manual key allows a quick comment or repeat, but more
importantly allows a constant key down condition to touch up the
antenna tuner.

As a suggestion, Scott it would be nice to have a tune button or
keyboard key (~ perhaps)for tune/touch-up purposes with boatanchor
transmitters or antenna tuners.

Can't get ACLog to read freq & mode

k9plx@...
 

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


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

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I have had good reports from other IC706 MarkIIG users so I'm sure it is just a matter of getting the com settings right.  If any Icom users have the specifics for Chuck I'd sure appreciate it if you could pass them along.

Hi Ed,

So far, the same Icom string selection has worked with all Icom
rigs. I haven't had a report specifically on the 736 but it should
work. Just select Icom from the rig options.

Chuck, I did some digging through my notes and found a report of
working settings for the IC 706 MK II G with my software.

The settings are:

Baud rate: 19.2K
Parity: None
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Power Selected: DTR (that will depend on your interface)

I hope this helps. Please let me know how you make out.

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

Steven Blary <sblary@...>
 

Chuck,

My radio and manual is packed away at the moment -- I'm operating portable this
evening during the IOTA contest from Hutchinson Island NA-141. So I can't look
up the specifics at the moment. However if my memory is correct all of those
settings seem fine. the actual values of the string data may be off however
the radio ID - 58 seems right. I would confirm that setting in the radio's
menus to be sure but I believe that 58 is the 706's default (I think AClog
defaults to 56) DTR was the proper setting for me as well.

Hopefully you will have it resolved by tomarrow however if you don't let me
know and I'll confirm my settings ...

Good Luck and 73's
Steve Blary, N1XC

P.S. Listen for me on 20 meters SSB for the IOTA contest I should be on the
air by 6pm eastern.

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."

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.

call book import not working

When I try to import the FCC database into the callbook, it locks
the computer up. I've tryed it 3 different times and it locked up at
3 different stages of the import.

Re: call book import not working

Scott Davis
 

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your E-mail. The FCC and RAC data is not imported into ACLog. The data exists as files on your hard drive with .cal extensions that ACLog accesses for callbook lookup. You can either download the ACLog ready calldata from my website on the ACLog page or download and convert the data directly from the FCC and RAC pages.

Either way, don't try to import the data into ACLog. Just set a path to the files on your hard drive and check the check box for callbook lookup. When you tab from the Call field, the name and address of any valid US and Candadian call will appear in the appropriate data entry fields.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi Mike,

That is plenty of PC. I really don't know why you would be having a
problem converting the data. Like I say, I haven't had any other
reports of problems and that feature has been around for a couple of
years now.

You can always download the data from my website. I just updated it
at the beginning of the month so it is current.

I think that I may have found the problem. I forgot to mention that
while I'm at work I use a Dell docking station. I tryed it again at
home and it works. Something about the docking station that makes to
conversion lock up. I hope this helps someone in the furture. Adobe
ATM fonts will also lock computers up (for further referance).

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the clarification. I haven't had any other reports
of
problems with the conversion utility. What hardware are you
running?

I guess import was the wrong word to use. I'm using the

database under the file menu. It worked the first time I used
it,
but locks the computer up every time now.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for your E-mail.  The FCC and RAC data is not
imported
into
ACLog.  The data exists as files on your hard drive with .cal
extensions that ACLog accesses for callbook lookup.  You can
either
download the ACLog ready calldata from my website on the
ACLog
page
or download and convert the data directly from the FCC and
RAC
pages.

Either way, don't try to import the data into ACLog.  Just
set
a
path to the files on your hard drive and check the check box
for
callbook lookup.  When you tab from the Call field, the name
and
address of any valid US and Candadian call will appear in the
appropriate data entry fields.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

UTC and Daylight Savings

Jason Hissong <jhisson1@...>
 

Hi Scott,

I just noticed that when Daylight savings occurs, the ACLog program
does not adjust for that. Is this expected behavior? I know that
Windows takes care of it automatically, however, ACLog still has 5 in
it from when I set it up.

I found this out when I got a QSL card back saying I was an hour off...

Anyways.. so is the remedy to remember to change the UTC offset when
the clocks change over?

Thanks!

Also: Why not get print ACLOG like traditional hand logbook?

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.
