Just because only 7 folks have completed it doesn't mean that there aren't hundreds who are attempting it.
I would love the feature to be added.

There are a lot of grids, which may cause a significant amount of code, an ambious(sp?) undertaking.
I think the US has some 344, and worldwide there are 32,400!
I use the ARRL World Grid Locator Atlas and color them in as I work them.
However on the other side of the coin, working all grids in the US is a real achievement, and I think the ARRL has presented plaques to the 7 who have done it.

Re: Club Score Processor questions

Hi Melody,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Since you have scores being processed, it sounds like you are up and running.  I wait for a user to add an upload before I add them to the processor.  You'll always need to use the full URL (and it can be case sensitive, depending on hosting site).

Yes, you should be able to click on the call signs in the totals page to bring up each member's individual stats, as long as they have done at least one upload.  You can see how ours works here:


Click on the call signs in the page above and each will take you to their individual upload page.

Enjoy!

I have added individuals with their CALLSIGN-contest.html into the Club Score Processor. A couple of us are testing this within the contest software with successful uploads to have live examples to test.

2. Within the displayed totals.html page, I’m able to select individual callsign links, but get a 404 page not found error for the links. Should selecting a callsign on the totals page visit a viewable page for that callsign that’s been uploading data?

Hi Amir,

Thanks for your follow up and the screen shots.  Perhaps JTAlert has a setting to provide a power value via the API?  That is the only other thing I can think of.  The only 3 ways the power field can get a value is if you type one manually, it carries the previous QSO value forward or JTAlert is sending the value via the API.

One thing to try first - edit the last QSO, then actually close and restart AC Log.  If the problem still persists, you might want to ping the JTalert folks on that.

Good luck!

Hi Scott,  
Unfortunately,  ACLog records 0.1 for power,  my rig can only do 5w at its lowest setting,  and I  have corrected the log entries manually,  which is time consuming,  tedious etc.  See the two pics below one showing my screen before I  logged the QSO and one showing the logged qso with 0.1 as power.  Note that none of the previous QSOs in the log had that power (all corrected manually)

Hi, 
New user. Yaesu FTDX101MP, running FT8, and using ACLog. Not using ACLog for rig control with FT8. When I log a QSO, using WSJT-X 2.2.0, the logging box contains the correct data, power etc. JT-ALERTS passes the data to ACLog but the power shown in ACLog is 0.1, which is definitely not what I used. Anyway to fix this? Maybe a setting I missed in ACLog? Thanks.

Re: ACLog (or contest logs) Command Line Options for Startup

Alleluias brother.  I hear ya.  That would be a great and badly needed update to the contest modules.  Very good idea.

 

Is there a command line option for ACLog (or the contest programs) that will disable rig control within ACLog upon startup?

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] ACLog (or contest logs) Command Line Options for Startup

 

Hi all - 

I use ACLog as my main logging program, but also do a bit of contest logging with various N3FJP logging programs.

I have all configured for rig control to work with my trusty little Kenwood TS-140S.  However, when using digital modes such FT8, the WSJT-X software needs absolute control of the serial port to the radio for rig control.  So, when I start ACLog, of course, I get a pop up error message that the software can't get to the serial port.  Click OK, all is well.

Is there a command line option for ACLog (or the contest programs) that will disable rig control within ACLog upon startup?  I also use JTAlert and it is configured to start both WSJT-X and ACLog at the same time.  Would be nice to have the whole suite of software start with no pop-ups.

It's a minor thing- call it "qualify of ham life" LOL!  If not, would be a worthy addition to a future release, in my opinion.

Thanks!

Hi Ray,
 
We need a lot more information about your environment before hazarding a guess.  When was the last time you rebooted your computer? Rig control?  What other apps are running?  etc.

Amir,

While the drop down for power in JTAlertX only goes to 40W, you can type any power level you wish
in the box.. Mine is set to 95W and it works fine and is remembered when I start/stop JTAlertx.

Thanks for your reply,  Scott.  I traced the source of the 0.1 power logged to JT-Alerts.  Their setting.  And it can be changed up to 40, but never representing the actual power used.  It is thus practically useless for me,  so I  simply disabled Power on the data field entry and move Power column way to the right side of the ACLog window where it won't be seen and bothering me. 

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Amir,

Thanks for your follow up and the screen shots.  Perhaps JTAlert has a setting to provide a power value via the API?  That is the only other thing I can think of.  The only 3 ways the power field can get a value is if you type one manually, it carries the previous QSO value forward or JTAlert is sending the value via the API.

One thing to try first - edit the last QSO, then actually close and restart AC Log.  If the problem still persists, you might want to ping the JTalert folks on that.

Good luck!

Hi Scott,  
Unfortunately,  ACLog records 0.1 for power,  my rig can only do 5w at its lowest setting,  and I  have corrected the log entries manually,  which is time consuming,  tedious etc.  See the two pics below one showing my screen before I  logged the QSO and one showing the logged qso with 0.1 as power.  Note that none of the previous QSOs in the log had that power (all corrected manually)

Hi Amir,

Thanks for your e-mail.  AC Log defaults to the last power value entered.  Correct your most recent QSO record and then the next one will reflect that value.

Enjoy!

Hi, 
New user. Yaesu FTDX101MP, running FT8, and using ACLog. Not using ACLog for rig control with FT8. When I log a QSO, using WSJT-X 2.2.0, the logging box contains the correct data, power etc. JT-ALERTS passes the data to ACLog but the power shown in ACLog is 0.1, which is definitely not what I used. Anyway to fix this? Maybe a setting I missed in ACLog? Thanks.

Re: Power shows 0.1

I use WSJT-X, JTALERTS and ACLog. When the WSJT-X log box comes up, the Power is blank. I type in the power I was using which is not always the same. I then click OK and another box comes up saying it was successfully logged to ACLog. No problem. I DO NOT use a default power level.  CUL & 73s   Jim   W7JWT
