Feature Request - "worked but not confirmed"

Louis Ricci
 

Hi Scott,

In the 'awards' tab, one can see the countries/states/etc that have been worked regardless of QSL status or the entities that have been worked AND QSL received.  Other than a rather painful manual process, I don't see a way to get a report of countries/states/etc that have been worked but NOT confirmed.  If there is, shame on me for not being able to find it.  If not would you please consider such a function for a future release?

Thanks and 73

Well, it matters very much what versions you had and have.  You cannot transfer settings from v3.x to v6.x.  If you were using one of the newer versions, help is here:

Urgent Help Needed!!! I finally got my Amateur Contest Log to transfer to a new computer with my 8,700 contacts. Now my problem is that the settings did not transfer. The complete setup of where entry blocks are placed and the "OTHER" categories I set up are not there. The total look is different. How can I bring all my old stuff back???

Terry,

From the N3FJP website FAQ:

I would like to backup or transfer my AC Log customized settings. Which files should I copy?

You will need the following files for AC Log 4.0 and later (note - these files only exist if you changed from a default setting):

AddressPrintSettings.xml
ColorAndFontSettings.xml
CustomFieldsDisplayed.xml
LoTWColumnWidth.xml
LoTWListColumnOrder.xml
MainListColumnOrder2.xml
MainListColumnWidth2.xml
Settings.xml
QSLStripPrintSettings.xml

You will need the following files for AC Log 3.4 and earlier:

ACCtrlLc.txt
hcolm.txt
hcolmord.txt
hcolors.txt
tabord.txt

Hope this helps.

Steve, AI3KS

Hi Jesse…I have an illustrated step-by-step for the workings of Winkeyer and an IC-7300….you may not have that radio but the Winkeyer part will set you straight.  So as I don’t clog up your inbox, let me know your call sign or you request at NG1I@... and I’ll gladly send it to you

Thanks for the reply Scott. Yes, I see the yellow box with the speed changing as I press the arrow keys, it just doesn’t actually change the Meyer speed after the program opens up again until info into the strings again as described in the first email. It’s like ac log isn’t opening the winkeyer or something. I also found that I can sometimes get it to respond by hitting f12, typing some text and hitting  the up/down arrows as it sends the typed text. Sometimes this will start letting the speed be adjusted as well.

Hi Jesse,

 

Thanks for your e-mail.  The up and down arrow keys from the main form should control your Winkeyer Mini's speed.  Make sure the main form has focus, that the software is in CW mode and that your keyboard arrow keys are mapped conventionally,  As you tap the arrow key, you should briefly see a yellow box appear and display the speed as in increments up and down.  If you are not seeing that box, the software is not getting the command from your arrow keys.

Got the WKmini today and am using it with AC Log. I can go into the setup and get everything working and control the speed with the up/down arrow keys on the keyboard but when I exit the program it seems to revert to sending at 30wpm ( not surprised as it’s not designed to work stand alone w/o a host app). However, when I then open AC log again it continues to send at 30wpm and the up and down arrow keys no longer control the speed, I have to go back into the setup and use the software buttons to turn the speed up or down, then hit test at which point it will send at the selected speed. After closing out the setup screen the up/down arrow keys on keyboard once again will change the speed, what am I missing?


Re: Winkey mini Speed control issues

Scott Davis
 

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your e-mail.  There is no need to open Winkeyer from the CW set up form (and as you observed, when you exit the form it is close again anyway).  The same open code is called when you send a character from the main form, so that is all you need to do.

Enjoy!

A friend of mine has a keyer that emulates winkeyer; it makes ba-deep and ba-doop sounds whenever it gets "opened" or "closed".  Here's what I've observed:

Opening the CW setup window closes the winkeyer.  If you click on Winkeyer Setup and then click on Open, it gets re-opened.  So, every time I need to adjust the F-key macros, I then click on winkeyer setup and open, as well.  I also do that first thing upon opening the logging software.  This seems like a bug, to me, but it's only a minor inconvenience.

Scott,

As always, thanks for your quick answer.

I now understand that many contests have different Cabrillo formats.

Call me lazy, but I figured I could use my ACL software on Field Day,
rather than install another logging program.

Oh well, I will install your FD software on my home computer!

Hope you and your family are safe and healthy in these QSB times.

Re: Winkey mini Speed control issues

Thanks Scott, that's the answer to the "problem" if it AC Log doesn't automatically open/connect to winkeyer on startup.  Just went down to the shack and verified that once AC Log opens I can hit F1 (any F-key) and as its sending tap the up/down arrow keys and it starts sending at the selected speed.  Just have to remember to take the rig off of BK-IN when I do this so I don't go out over the air hihi.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Winkey mini Speed control issues

Got the WKmini today and am using it with AC Log. I can go into the setup and get everything working and control the speed with the up/down arrow keys on the keyboard but when I exit the program it seems to revert to sending at 30wpm ( not surprised as it’s not designed to work stand alone w/o a host app). However, when I then open AC log again it continues to send at 30wpm and the up and down arrow keys no longer control the speed, I have to go back into the setup and use the software buttons to turn the speed up or down, then hit test at which point it will send at the selected speed. After closing out the setup screen the up/down arrow keys on keyboard once again will change the speed, what am I missing?

Hi Jesse,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The up and down arrow keys from the main form should control your Winkeyer Mini's speed.  Make sure the main form has focus, that the software is in CW mode and that your keyboard arrow keys are mapped conventionally,  As you tap the arrow key, you should briefly see a yellow box appear and display the speed as in increments up and down.  If you are not seeing that box, the software is not getting the command from your arrow keys.

Enjoy!

Re: ACL - no export for Cabrillo?

Hi Roy,
 
First, why don’t you all use the FD software.
 
Also – you do not need a Cabrillo File.  A Dupe Sheet is sufficient, which you can generate from ACLog.  ACLog does not generate a Cabrillo as it is not contesting SW.  It does not have all of the info a Cabrillo requires.

Scott, Our club Field Day chairman has asked members, working from home on Field Day, to send him their log file from their home logging software, as a Cabrillo file.

I am a bit surprised to find that Amateur Contact Log only has an ADI export. I know your Field Day software has a Cabrillo export feature.

Am I missing something in ACL, or, well what's your reasoning for not including it? I'm sure you have a good reason!

And yes, to others responding, I do see lots of ADI to Cabrillo format programs on the web - that's not my question!!!

Thanks, 73, Roy

Hi Roy,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Instead of AC Log, this is the program that you should be using for Field Day:
