Re: UTC and Daylight Savings

Scott Davis
 

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.

Windows takes care of it automatically, however, ACLog still has 5 in

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?

Hi Scott,

When do you think 2.4 will be available? My log of over 2000 contacts is
getting rather slow! Do you need someone to help beta test? I'd be happy
to volunteer.

Re: UTC and Daylight Savings

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.

hey jim...you hit the f12 key and you can send code through the

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

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.

Hi Dee,

I've had lots of good reports from users who have constructed the serial port interface on my website.  I believe the serial schematic is fine.

If anyone has built a parallel interface and has a copy of the schematic that they used I'd love to add it to the website.

Re: CW interface capabilities

if you assembled the interface as per the drawings on the web site then it
should work....i was getting cw backwards because i had the input pins wires
backwards from the drawing.....if you are getting a steady key you might
want to check your diodes to see if they are in correctly....the band should
be on the side of the transistor.....hope this helps....doug

Hi Mike,

The ARRL's Log Book of the World uses either ADIF or Cabrillo files.  All of my software already generates either one or both file types so everything is good to go.  Just set up your account with the LOTW, download their upload software and you should be all set.

easy life

radhames bonilla <radhamesbonilla@...>
 

 

Hi Scott and anybody:

Why not made a bit easy life of the ACLOG users?

A few minor changes or suggestions for any ACLOGs upgrade:

  1)To allow enter date and time data without separators (/, :), and let program make itself separations? Why separators are necessaryly mandatory for enter data?

  2)Repeat last date from previous qso logged?

  3)"Turn on"/Turn off" functions: for on and off date/time: good for logged old qsos from hand logbook, avoiding program set from system date and time.

  4)Build famous table I have suggestion before, where user enter frequency and program automactically would  enter band, mode, rsts data (59 or 599 by default, depending mode entered)? User could modify that table.

  4)E-mail field  that would allow users send any e-mail without exit of ACLOG?

  In version 2.4:

Would be [possible to print QSO record #? 

                                                         I think that not too much logging designers answer too fast, as You do it, all users requeriments: You are a true leader in this aspect.

But, It is too much work for made  a  bit more easy, life to all all yours users?

Ham comunity would be glad.

Re: NAQP cabrillo file

Scott Davis
 

Hi Justin,

Apparently this is something new as this has not come to light before.  NAQP does not have power categories so I'm not sure why they would need it.

You can open your Cabrillo log in a text editor such as Windows Notepad and change the category such as:

CATEGORY: SINGLE-OP-LOW

I will add the power category to the next NAQP upgrade.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
