Hi George,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I've not experienced anything like that or had any similar reports.  Nothing is coming to mind here, but I will continue to give it thought.

Recently, I started to hear duplicate audio alerts on DX spots.  One is
about 1/2 second behind the other.   I've run through the menus but
can't seem to find what I must have checked or unchecked by accident.  
I want to hear new/unconfirmed countries on the band. All suggestions
appreciated.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Your TQSL cert is tied to the call sign you should be using on the air.

I will give thought to emitting both the call sign entered in setup, as well as operator call sign on ADIF export in a future release.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Setup "Call" vs. "Operator" fields? #contest

I've always entered my call sign in both the "Call" and the optional "Operator" fields when setting up any N3FJP program.

This weekend I'm operating the MO QSO party with a special 1x1 call... and so when setting up, I entered that 1x1 call in the Setup dialog's "Call" field, and my personal callsign in the "Operator" field.

I just did an ADIF export of the data so far, and discovered that the 1x1 call in the "Call" setup field does not exist in any record of the data. I'm baffled. What's the purpose of the "Call" field?

Don't I want these exported records to have the callsign I was using on the air in the contest?

Also: I understand that with LoTW I'll need to request a new callsign certificate for this special event 1x1 call sign, which I'll use to sign these QSOs as I upload them... but what's the correct/expected call sign that should appear in my QSO records?

Re: Logging the minor contests with existing programs

Check out Genlog32. It is a lightweight logger that supports a boatload of contests. You can export an ADIF for ACL to gobble up when you are done.

It was my contest logger of choice for many years before I bought the N3FJP suite. I still use it occasionally for odd purposes.

Re: DING!

If you add the county prefix that will change the country.  The county abbreviation ios appended to the call to let contestant know where the rover is. It stops dupes.  In some State QSO Partys you may work the same rover a couple dozen times as he drives through the state.

Hi Dale,

Thanks for your e-mail.  My software checks for valid callsigns on entry and alerts you when you attempt to enter a call that does not have a number in the second or third position.

In the case of state QSO parties, mobile /  rover stations will often append the county they are now in, to let you know if they are in a new county, so that you can work them again.  This is not part of their call sign and you should not be entering the country abbreviation in the Call field, just the call sign.

Enjoy!

Every time I enter a callsign in the logsheet entry field which has no number in the portable prefix, I get a big ding. I get another big ding when I click DONE to log the entry. Apparently, ACL has a problem with no number in the portable prefix. It is what the station sent me—and everyone else he worked, and which LOTW recognizes as a valid portable prefix. Can this be fixed? Either by me or the ACL powers-that-be.

Dale,
Which version of the logger are you using? ACL or a contest/special event version?
In the ACL version of the logger, I do not see a "Portable Prefix" field.
I also checked two of the state QP loggers and neither of them have a "Portable Prefix" field.

Stop getting hung up on words.  Comments can be anything you want.  If you have AC Log setup to do QRZ lookups an address will appear in the comment field, but during a QSO you can add info like the station gear the other person is using.  You can put anything you want in comment field.  I use it to record station equipment.

Under “Edit” there is no selection for address. There is a “QTH group” that can be selected but I have no idea of what that means.

 

I would be happy to click on each callsign if that would make the program attach the desired information. Right now, it won’t.

 

BTW, I did manually add a contact this morning, W1AW. It worked and came up with a mailing address in the “Comments” column.
