Using CW option

Mel Marcus
 

Here is my situation.

I plan on dong the CW WPX contest.
I will probably only work 40m
I have a K3 with the usb interface
I have all the parameters set correctly settings > transmit > cw > com 3 and dsr.
I will not be using  the rig interface because I am staying 40m cw and the exchange does not need to know about freq.
when I test using F9 nothing happens.
I go back to setting > rig interface > elecraft > com3 > 38400
I poll it works
I go back to setting >rig interface > none 
then I go back to the cw and it  works.
so it seems that there is not speed setting in the cw interface and you have to get rig interface to work first and then turn it off
remember I am only using one cable because I do not  need to use rig interface

Am I doing something wrong

Re: dumping a copy of old file

Hi Ray, 

AC Log 3.4 and earlier can coexist on the same PC with AC Log 4.0 and later.  If you have a 3X or earlier version, you will have to uninstall that first.  On the other hand, just use your existing 3X version to open the .bak file.

Re: dumping a copy of old file

Jim Shorney
 

Ah, that was a question that I didn't see answered. If you lost the entire drive, with no files left, then you are right. If the drive is still functional at all it is possible that the file(s) could be recovered. If the drive is electrically dead recovery is out of the reach of mere mortals although there are companies that do it (if you have to ask you can't afford it).

I have mine set up to write backups to my Dropbox folder which is linked to (free) cloud storage. Not only is the that particular backup off-site it is available to my anywhere I go that has internet access.

You didn't have the internal auto-backup of the "new" version turned on? I should think that would be a default but it has been so long since I installed I don't recall. I changed mine not long back write the backups to my Dropbox folder. Easy-peasy.

Hi Scott,
Thank you for the response.
I don't want to disable Dx Spotting. I just want to be able to halt the scrolling at times to catch one of the spots when they scroll fast. This would be a great option  in your program if possible.
On another note: Your logging program is very strong. Many other logging programs slow down or crash on a busy spotting weekend. If you could interface in your next update CW Skimmer with your program, it would become much more powerful and stronger and I believe many more people would use it. If you interface it with the ACLog it will work with any of your contesting programs too. Please reconsider.
Thank you,

Re: Grid squares

Hi John,

Thanks for your e-mail.  You should use the dedicated Grid Square field, not one of the Other fields, for logging grid squares.  This field will populate automatically from QRZ lookups, JTAlert, etc.  Details on displaying the grid square field on the main form are here:

Re: Grid squares

Jim Shorney
 

You don't need to use an Other field for grid. There is already a Grid field that you can move into the display area and place in the data entry area. The reason your Other field is carrying forward the previous entry is because you have told it to in the Other field setup.

Re: scrolling spots

Alexander Kopp MD
 

Hi Scott,
Thank you for the response.
I don't want to disable Dx Spotting. I just want to be able to halt the scrolling at times to catch one of the spots when they scroll fast. This would be a great option  in your program if possible.
On another note: Your logging program is very strong. Many other logging programs slow down or crash on a busy spotting weekend. If you could interface in your next update CW Skimmer with your program, it would become much more powerful and stronger and I believe many more people would use it. If you interface it with the ACLog it will work with any of your contesting programs too. Please reconsider.
Thank you,
73, Alex AK1MD

Re: dumping a copy of old file

You didn't have the internal auto-backup of the "new" version turned on? I should think that would be a default but it has been so long since I installed I don't recall. I changed mine not long back write the backups to my Dropbox folder. Easy-peasy.

Morning all.
 
I reported a couple of days ago that I was having issues keeping my column widths in place.  No one seemed to have any answer, Scott said the programming in that area had not changed in years.  I believe them all.  I used to live on Murphy St.  If it can go wrong, it happens to me.  Scott may remember the missing font debacle.  Without Scott’s intervention, I might still be out of luck!
 
My only guess about the column issue was that maybe the little wireless keyboard with a touch-pad instead of a mouse might be the problem.  So when I shut down my system in the control room this morning, I borrowed the spare wired mouse.  When I got home, I reset the column widths, then went one-by-one and used the mouse to set the column widths as I wanted them. 
 
AND IT WORKED!  Column widths stayed where I set them as I opened and closed the program 5 times.  The 5th restart, I downloaded the new country files before restarting.  Still fine!  I guess I better keep a wired mouse on hand just in case.  This one needs to go back to work with me tonight.  It won’t be missed today, due to COVID-19 we are operating out of two control rooms.  Day shift is in the primary control room.  I and my night crew will open up and run the back-up control center starting at 1730 MDT when the day shift will shut down the primary control room and go home for 12 hours.
 
I’m headed to bed.  But I’m happy!  It was a quiet night on the grid, but 12 hours is 12 hours and I’m beat.  Y-all have a SUPER day!  Stay safe, stay well.

What exactly do you mean by "the backups were not properly working"? They should be just fine unless you were sending them to a non-existent folder or a drive that was full, in which case I would think that you would have seen an error message.
