Re: Band data changes back to 20 (metres)

  Hello Scott,

 Sunday, June 7, 2020

 Thank you, I had been playing with settings under the rig interface menu, so mea culpa.

I would definitely welcome the means to remove (hide) unused buttons from the menu options in a future release, for some reason I thought I had done this previously, but I am now of an age where I mistakenly think I have done lots of things previously :) All the best Scott.


Best regards,
 Chris    2E0ILY

Hi Chris, 

Thanks for your e-mail.  From the menu options click Settings > Rig Interface and then select None from the rig list.

Sorry, the menu options aren't user customizable.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Band data changes back to 20 (metres)

I have been mainly active on digital LF for a few years but during the Corona Virus outbreak decided I should be speaking with real people while there are some still left :) I reinstalled your excellent software and put in my purchase key and all seemed well. But I have just noticed when I set "Band" from 20 to 40 or whatever, after a couple of seconds or so it reverts back to 20. The only fix I have found is allowing it to log the contact as of being on 20 metres then edit the entry and set it to 40 metres. I suspect I am missing something as I am sure this would have been mentioned a lot.

Finally, (and I think I asked this years ago), how do I remove unwanted top menus, I have very basic needs and would rather not have a lot of redundant to me menus that need horizontal scrolling to view. I messed about under Settings - Edit Fields Displayed but was unable to stop them showing, how do I remove them please?

Thanks for both excellent software and the excellent support that drew me back to N3FJP software.



Re: ACL now locks up after logging a few contacts

Christopher Scibelli
 

I have real-time logging enabled for LoTW but not for eQSL or Clublog.  That might be why I only had the problem once and you had it continuously.  If it happens to me again I'll shut off real-time uploading to LoTW.

Thank you, Dave KZ1O !!    I followed your instructions and disabled the "Enable real time" feature in ACLog for both eQSL and LoTW and I think that fixed the lockup problem I was having.  Tonight I logged over 25 contacts in a row with NO problems.  Apparently  the problem is with ACLog and the eQSL or LoTW real time logging.  I do not know how to fix that so I will just send my logs to eQSL and LoTW after I am through with  each session.

If anyone knows the solution to the real time logging problem with ACLog, please advise.  Again, THANK YOU, DAVE       73, Ray AA4EZ

Re: Using FD logging over the internet (not LAN)

Scott Davis
 

Hi Ron,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Yes, you can use my software to log from remote locations over the Internet as distributed multi op, as detailed are here:


http://www.n3fjp.com/faq.html#q120


That said, with ARRL's 1,000 foot Field Day rule, the option above isn't applicable for Field Day.  Please see this FAQ here:


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


Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Using FD logging over the internet (not LAN)

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your great FD Logging Software! My Club has used it for many years with our operators spread out over remote sites at recreation areas and county fairgrounds. We’ve used garage sale routers DD-WRT to keep in touch over our LAN and enjoy the friendly competition during the FD weekend.
I have a question about using it differently this year, as several of us older members are considering operating from backyard stations to stay safe during the Covid-19 outbreak. Can your software be used by distant operators over the internet, with live updating and file sharing like we did over our private LAN? 

I checked, but didn’t find anything in the user groups on this.

Thanks and 73’s

Re: N3FJP ACLog import to SKCCLogger question

Tom NB5Q
 

I think I found the answer, the City field name in SKCCLogger is actually 'QTH' when I open an SKCCLogger export in the ADIF Master program. So I'm going to rename Other2 in N3FJP to 'QTH' and see how that works. I bet it will do the trick. I've been here before and Scott directed me to rename the field to match SKCCLogger exactly for the import to work (just forgot that I needed to interrogate the SKCCLogger exported file to find the true name of the field).
Thanks,
Tom NB5Q

Re: band issue

Bill D <cwfbs2@...>
 

Well, Steve...  I read your suggestion, and checked the settings in AC logger, and I did have a selection for rig, so set it to "none" and the band is doing as I ask now.

Good grief.... just makes sense now! Thanks for the replies, and the solution. I'm sure Larry (W1DYJ) was indicating the same issue, I was just not grasping that the program was activated to read a band, and 80 was the one it saw last before I unhooked. Sorry, Larry.... I should have paid more attention to what you were saying.

Much appreciated guys!
