Date/Time Field vs Separate Date and Time On Fields on top Display

ae6ou.tx@...
 

I recently had to re-install version 6.6 after a complete meltdown of my PC.  I had data backed up but not display formats etc. On the QSO display list the headings have changed.  Separate "Date" and "Time On" columns have been combined into one labeled "Date/Time". 

"Time Off" has been replaced with "Off".  Is there a way to returned to my prior setup?

Thanks,
Harold AE6OU


Field Day Clarifications, FAQs & Club Score Processor Fun!

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

With just 17 days to go until we kick off Field Day 2020, one of the highlights of the Amateur Radio season is about to start!  

I'm receiving lots of requests for clarification about how club members will operate from their individual homes and still have their QSO's count towards the club total, under the Field Day aggregate score 2020 waiver rule.  Here is the FAQ I'm receiving most and my answer:

http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q121

How does our club submit our Field Day entry under the new 2020 rules?

If you are submitting in the Delta category, you must upgrade to Field Day Log 6.3:  http://www.n3fjp.com/fieldday.html

If your club is physically together, with all stations within a 1,000 foot circle, operating under a single call sign (except for GOTA), you will submit your results normally as detailed here:  http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q68

If your club is not operating within a 1,000 foot circle, you will each operate under your own call. You will NOT combine your logs. Aside from agreeing on a club name, there is no need to coordinate your submission with the rest of your club. Just submit your entry as detailed here:  http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q68

When you go to http://field-day.arrl.org/fdentry.php to submit your log, you will see a Club or Group Name field. Enter your club's name exactly as your club has specified. ARRL will combine everyone's score within your club and report your grand total when they publish the 2020 Field Day results.

You can still see your club's combined total grow in real time on Field Day weekend, enjoy each other's company and have a great time virtually while operating individually for Field Day 2020. You'll find more on how we have a blast doing that with our club in many of the great contests each year, in the Field Day and Clubs section!  http://www.n3fjp.com/news/news2020-05-29.html


ARRL Field Day FAQs.

In response to the questions ARRL is receiving, they just released their own Field Day FAQs, which covers lots of additional detail as well.  You will find the ARRL Field Day FAQ page here:



Please Find Your Field Day Password Now!

If you haven't already entered your registration information, please don't wait until the last minute to realize that you can't find your password (or register the Field Day software). If you can't find your password, Kimberly is happy to help, but the week leading up to Field Day gets crazy, so if you can't find yours, please e-mail us now.  As always, upgrades are free to registered users!


Club Score Processor Setup

Running the free Club Score processor is entirely optional, but adds so much more fun to every contest, including Field Day, that I am thrilled to see many new clubs and groups giving it a try for the first time.  Watching your club's score grow in real time, as well as seeing how each of you are doing individually, along with the banter in our virtual clubhouse on the Discord app, adds a quantum leap of fun to contesting! 

Here is an example of our Northeast Maryland Amateur Radio Contest Society's totals web page at the end of 2015 November Sweepstakes SSB:

t.png

 
The club score processor is easy to set up, as long as one individual in your club has a basic understanding of putting a web page on the Internet. If one person in your club has ever put a web page up using an FTP program or basic web publishing software, you will be fine.  Just don't wait until the last minute.  This is definitely something you want to set up well in advance (now).

You'll find the six easy steps for the one person in your group coordinating the Club Score Processor here:  http://www.n3fjp.com/clubscore.html

Enjoy Field Day!  I'm looking forward to working you!!!


And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...    


Package Upgrade Information...   

If you have registered one or more individual programs and would like to upgrade to N3FJP's Software Package for full use of all our Amateur Radio software, we would be glad to apply the amount that you have registered so far as a credit towards that purchase. Please send us an e-mail directly and we'll let you know your balance.   

N3FJP's Software Package includes more than one hundred programs for contesting, net management and general logging Amateur Radio applications. In addition to full use of all these programs, registered package customers are also entitled to receive free passwords for any new software that we add to the package and free upgrades to existing programs. There are no annual / maintenance costs of any kind.  Simply register once and you are set with N3FJP Software for life!  You'll find all the details on the Register Now page here: 



Donations are Gratefully Accepted! 

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly and I are very grateful...  

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"   

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:  


or send your contribution by mail, payable to Affirmatech Inc., to:

Re: Question on unconfirmed Grid

Tom & Barb Valosin
 

I have trouble comprehending why a person is so hung up on the number of grid chasers. It is not an easy pursuit. Nor are other "chasers", be it counties, DXCC, EME, satellites, etc. Does that mean Scott should not accommodate, if reasonably possible, making such record info available because "only a few" appear to be "in pursuit of whatever?" He is the programmer and if he thinks the program can be made to supply the info, much like the "states worked by band", or "DX confirmed by band" feature, why not?

I think this thread has run its' course.

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.

UPDATE: Column widths resetting themselves.

Mike Olbrisch
 

Good morning all.

 

Running AC-Log on Windows-10.  A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had a problem with maintaining column width settings.  When I would open AC-Log, every time one or more columns would resize themselves smaller.  Trying to reset them would work until the program was closed, but the next time the program was opened some number of columns would again have changed. 

 

One day I decided to try resetting and starting over.  I went to SETTINGS à RESET COLUNMS TO DEFAULT à MAIN LIST WIDTHS.

 

After resetting everything, I went back starting from left to right, manually dragging each column to the size I wanted using a mouse (I normally use a very small keyboard with a mouse pointer-pad on the operating desk).   It has been a few weeks now and the columns have stayed in place.

I hope this solution helps anyone who experiences this situation in the future.

Re: Use of N3FJP by club members remotely?

Gary
 

Tim,

 

                We were in the same boat – and had a member step up and anonymously offer to cover the first 10 members who wanted a registered copy but didn’t think they could afford the $8.99. I believe the donor has purchased 2 copies so far and everyone else bought their own.

 

                I will add we have tested the club score processor. That is a really cool feature!

I know normally the following rule applies.

 

One registration entitles your club to install the program on multiple PCs under one call sign at one Field Day location.  

 

But as we are under Covid-19 restrictions my question is can the club members use the N3FJP Field Day software from their homes, gardens, woods, etc under the following conditions.

1) They must put the specific club name when submitting their logs.

2) Once Field Day is over they must delete the program from their computer.

Re: Use of N3FJP by club members remotely?

Scott Davis
 

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The short answer is that clubs operating at an individual location, all operating under one call within ARRL's 1,000 foot rule, may continue to use one registration, but those outside of the 1,000 foot circle are operating independently and using their own call, not the club call, so they should register individually.  Field Day this year is no different than any of the many other club contests, where members operate individually and pool their scores, that occur each year.

Individuals working independently are e-mailing me individually for support, rather than seeking help through their group and coordinating through their clubs as usual.  As a result, my e-mail support effort for Field Day is already off the charts.  For these reasons, this part of the licensing agreement remains in tact:


http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q70

Our club registered your software. Are club members allowed to use the club registration at home or elsewhere for their personal use?

No, a club registration is only for use at the location of a club station. Providing club members registration numbers for their personal use is NOT allowed under our registration policy. This is a violation of our agreement, it hurts our business and our livelihood. Since 1997, we have kept our one time registration fee low and we've provided countless free upgrades.

A single program only costs about as much as one submarine sandwich ($8.99). With over 120 programs in our package, free support and free upgrades for life, with all the work we are putting into developing, maintaining and supporting our software, at $0.41 per program (package deal is $49.99 / 120 programs = $0.41), our pricing represents excellent value and the programs are already very deeply discounted.

To continue our current, free upgrade pricing policy, we are counting on the honesty and integrity of clubs to maintain the strict confidentiality of club passwords.

Thanks for asking and your understanding.

Enjoy Field Day!

Re: Question on unconfirmed Grid

I can only  speak for myself, but I am an avid grid chaser.  In the past three days I have picked up 13 new 6M grids in Europe, for a total of 360 WW on 6M.  I suspect that nearly everyone who does weak-signal 6M work will be a grid chaser.  Same for 2M,etc.  I have no need for ACLog to do anything more than log them.

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.
Not to throw water on it, but a good sized project.

I know that you can list QSOs for unconfirmed states and countries, but I don't see anything about unconfirmed grids. Am I missing it?

It would be nice, especially on VHF for VUCC, to see what's unconfirmed.

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!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Club Score Processor questions

I’m *almost* finished setting up the N3FJP Club Score Processor to make Field Day at home more fun and engaging for our club members, but wonder about this item in the instructions:

6. Add the additional club member's URLs to the Club Score Processor. You will see the additional stations listed on the totals.html page with each upload.
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.

Questions:
1. Do I need to add the full site URL and file path to CALLSIGN-contest.html, or does it work as given?

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? 

We are close to success, but may be missing that special something. Do you know what it is, or we doing this properly?
Thanks for your help!

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.

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.

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.
