Hi Amir,
 
My power setting comes from WSJT-X, where I set it for 80w.   Have you checked this?

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.

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.

From the FAQ on Scott's website:

I just bought a new PC! How do I transfer Amateur Contact Log and my contacts to my new computer?

Go ahead and download the installation file for AC Log, (now up to version 6.6) install it and then enter your password.
From the old computer click File > Export ADIF. Write the file to an accessible location to all PCs on your home network, or to a portable storage medium and take it to your new computer. From the new computer click File > Import ADIF and select the file.

Just register the software with your old call and password. If you don't have them, email Scott directly, not on the group.

Hope this helps.

I’ve recently purchased a new laptop and need to transfer my files from old to new. I don’t have a CD to download my Amateur Contract Log Ver 6.1 program and I don’t recall if I went CD or downloaded vis the internet. I’ve had this copy for a number of years. If there is a product key I have no idea where to find it.

 

When I purchased the software my call sign was KG6SYX, I’m now AI6OZ, e-mail would have been cgbunn@..., it’s now chuckgbunn@.... 

 

Bottom line - I need a copy of Amateur Contract Log Ver 6.1 software and don’t know how to re-download the log from old to my new laptop?? or do I have to buy new software?

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!

Marlo,

Just saw your note.

Select <Settings> <Rig Interface>.  In the "Select Rig" column, got to the top and select None.  You will have no more digital mode problems at start up.

If you want ACL to control the rig, you must go back and select your rig.
