Hi JoAnn,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Please see this FAQ here:

That said, unlike my contest software, AC log is not designed for contesting.

Short answer, YES.

Long answer, I have been doing this with one instance on a Win7 box and another instance in a WinXP VM on a Linux machine for years. I use the file share method. Look under Settings > Network for an explanation.

It is not hard at all to have your Apps on one Computer and ACLog on another. In fact you can have your apps on two or more computers with all of them reporting to ACLog on a separate computer.

I have my Digital Apps, WSIT-X/JTAlert, N7YG RTTY, and PSK Express on one computer with the Serial ports connected to the Rig and the Sound Card Modem. ACLog is on another computer. Once setup, it works really slick. By clicking on the Call Sign of the station you want to work, triggers ACLog and sets up the pre-log. Once the contact is done and you click Log on the Digital App, ACLog then logs the contact.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Winkeyer USB disconnecting
 
I am running Windows 10 on a Dell laptop with current drivers loaded for my Winkeyer USB (which is using version 31.02 software).
From the settings menu, I can see that the Winkeyer has connected to the N3FJP software on the appropriate COM port, and when I test the keyer from the settings page, it will send the message in F9 successfully. 

I then exit the settings page, and with my K3 in CW mode, none of the messages associated with the function keys will send. 

I then go back into the settings page, and the Winkeyer is now disconnected. Repeating the above steps to reconnect the Winkeyer does not solve the problem.

Curiously, during many iterations of trying to figure this out, the function keys worked once to send a CW message, but then they stopped working.

I was trying to figure this out on Field Day with another laptop and was getting the same symptoms. I thought it might be unique to the laptop that was running Windows 7, but the same thing is happening on my Windows 10 machine.

Any ideas?

Since your computer does not have any real RS-232 serial ports installed you have 2 options. First, just purchase additional USB-Serial cables, one for each radio.  Or purchase some plugin cards if you have additional PCI slots and install some real serial ports.

If you want multiple programs to be able to share the same ports, then you will need to get  a serial port sharing software package.  Just do a search on port sharing and you will find a few package that will do that.

The problem is that I am unable to find more COM ports on the Windows 10 PC (that I use with the K3) in order to be able to  run AC Log and FT8 simultaneously due to an obvious COM port conflict.  I want both programs to be able to communicate logging data between the radio and PC - in concert.

I did an internet search for solutions to the problem which enable implementing multiple virtual COM ports.  It seems that some of the software solutions are rather pricey and some have an annual fee.  I would like to find a solution that is reasonably priced and that works, but I don’t want to purchase a product that will not solve this problem.  Also, I would like to only have to pay once for a solution.

If you have found a solution to a situation such as this, and have recommendations, please let me know.

Re: KEEP_ALIVE

Scott Davis
 

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The only keep alive option in my software is associated with the DX Spotting.  

That said, if you are programming a Client to connect to N3FJP via my API, I've not had any problem reports from any other developers, but you can always send a frequency request every minute or so, if your app needs it to keep the connection alive.  

Enjoy!

Are you setting (ACL for example) any values to the KEEP_ALIVE when the program starts the TCP connection from the client?

What you need is a Virtual Comm Port Driver. I am playing around with just what you want to do. The only problem is I have not found a FREE Virtual Comm Port Driver. The cheapest I have found is $139.00 for a one time license. and the company will not give Armatures a break in the price or a non-commercial license.
