Re: QSO data is invisible for entire log?

Scott Davis
 

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your follow up.  It sure appears something external to AC Log is at play, since deleting that setting file ensures that the AC Log settings were returned to default.

One last thing I can think of it try:

-  Close AC Log.

-  Using File Manager, navigate to C:\Users\YourWindowsUserProfile\Documents\Affirmatech\N3FJP Software\ACLog

-  Rename the ACLog folder as ACLogTemp.  Do not delete the folder.  It contains your log file.

-  Start AC Log.  It will come up as a new installation with all settings to default and a blank log file.

-  Enter a QSO and see if it is visible on the main form.

-  If it is, close AC Log, copy your log file from the ACLogTEMP folder to the newly, automatically created ACLog folder and restart AC Log.

Please let us know how you make out.

I changed the List Forecolor to different contrasting colors that shows up on the  [ Main List Appearance ] but has no effect on the [ Main Screen List ].
Changed to [ Reset to Original Settings ] and still no QSO display. It's as if the [ Main List Forecolor ] has a brightness level of 0%.
Recent Windows 10 updates , about a week ago, may have changed something as it did last year to the soundcard levels for WSJT-X that reduced the volume to 0%.

During the last hour of tonight's session of the Fla QSO party, I decided to go to the low end (CW) and call CQ, and maybe work a few stations before going to bed.

After a few minutes it sounded like the receiving end of a rare DX pileup.... but it was me!

After the love was over, and it got close to 10 o'clock, I saw that the "time" column had multiple entries with the same time, 2, 3, or 4 with the same time stamp. I knew that it was going fast, but didn't realize it until I plotted the rate, at View/Graph...  At the far right end it was a jagged graph that quickly went to 120 -- that is, 120-per-hour. That was an amazing thing, and I'm not sure if I have done that before.

The only reason I'm putting this here is to say that the program performed flawlessly. I was never waiting for it to catch up, never wondering what to press, or anything. It just worked.

You really have to love that.

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  I don't know of any way the number of duplicates could be increasing when manually deleting individual records.  Please send me a copy of your log file direct, with an example of an additional duplicate that occurred after you deleted it and I will take a look.

Hello, i've looked through a bunch of topics on removing duplicate contacts and can't find an answer to my problem.
I see that i have over 200 duplicate contacts in my log. It started out at about 40 and everytime i try to remove them the number increases. When i come across them in my log i delete them manually, but if i try to do from the menu that's when they increase. The only way i find them is if i happen upon them if im making another contact with that person. Is there a way to fix this or i just have to let it be?

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Editing QSL Label Fields

GA All,

I've used ACLog and the contest logs for quite a number of years now.

Through experimentation, I have edited and repositioned the input fields in the ACLog for satellite contact logs. The only hang-up I have now to edit the contacts for QSL labels.....trying to change the label field doesn't work for me when I highlight a call,  select  edit, select more but can't rearrange them to reflect to only reflect the changes for a QSL label........I get the call time & date, mode, and an RST( which I don't want) and I can't display the satellite on that label.

Has anyone found a workaround to this
Thanks
Frank
