Hi Gang,
 
I am going to try and get the official announcement out tomorrow, but Field Day Contest Log 6.3, updated to accommodate the waiver allowing Delta stations to work other Delta stations for points, is on the web site!
 
The coding changes were minimal, so I don't expect any problems, but I will be very grateful if you would give it a quick look this evening and let me know that it works as expected logging Delta stations (assuming you have entered your class as D in set up):
 
 
Thanks loads!

Re: ACL does not play well with FLdigi

Mark Gilligan
 

Thanks everybody  for the help.

 

My basic mistake was apparently believing that I needed to specify a COM port for my rig from within N3FJP,  Instead “NONE” should have been selected.

 

I had already enabled the data Stream feature in ACL

 

I am still able to use Hamlib in FLdigi for rig control.

Now I can shift my focus to understanding how to use the program.

Re: Trouble with FieldDay.exe install

Scott Davis
 

Hi Gang,

I just uploaded the file moments ago, so it will likely trip up any of the security software reputation warnings, as it is a brand new file.  The exe file is fine though.  It installed from the web site here just fine (and has been scanned with Windows Defender).

Just adjust the security settings for your protection software accordingly (or post the false positive to your Internet protection software provider if necessary).

Enjoy!

Hi All,
 
FYI, the following is from the ARRL web site.  I will have an updated Field Day version (6.3) which properly scores 1D to 1D QSOs shortly.  For folks not operating in the Delta class, version 6.2 is fine.
 
 
For Field Day 2020 only, Class D stations may work all other Field Day stations, including other Class D stations, for points.

Enjoy!

Sorry, but I've never encountered that.  The three (AC Log, WSJT-X and JT-Alert) have never posed a problem for me.  I hope somebody else can help you.

Re: fldigi logging for the upcoming 070 TDW PSK31 contest- solved

A working solution for the 070PSK31 contest - W4GHV   5/28/20 2PM    whew. 6 hours early
 
Using N3FJP WAE contest logging program
Using fldigi Generic Contest settings
No matter what its settings are in the Text Capture Order, the first mouse click on the CALL works, but the second one on a serial number (member number in the 070PSK contest) goes into the EXCHANGE box!
However if you RIGHT click on it INSTEAD and select S/N it goes into the S/N box and on to N#FJP logger OK!    
I found that the fldigi settings seem to disappear when you goof. Also I THINK exit and restart helps for it.
 
I sure hope there is a big turn out, since I've spent DAYS conquering this.

Re: FD Log using VPN on Windows 10

Ken Bell
 

Hi

I've been investigating a little different direction with this so I will post the idea here and if there is interest, I will send an updated document to Scott to post in his FAQ.  

The original method we chose to run our last distributed 'N3FJP Network' had some security flaws. Essentially, it allowed completely in-the-clear traffic over the internet to a port on a home 'N3FJP Network Server' and there was no authentication at all, so it was open to any and everyone. I was an IT Security professional in a previous life and understand the consequences of this.   Scott investigated an idea with another security professional that protected the port with a VPN.  Although I didn't try Scott's method, I could see that with the computer skills of *our* average member, that this would not be practical. 

I have investigated and am testing a project called 'PIVPN' that creates a OpenVPN endpoint on a $35 Raspberry PI with a couple of commands. The one RPi is the only new hardware needed.  The location with the RPi VPN Endpoint would host the N3FJP running the Network Server.  The other distributed users still use W10 and need to install a small free software package, and import a file, then their PCs show up on the home network of the N3FJP Network server as if they were physically present.

You still need a fairly smart guy to setup the Raspberry PI and make a change to the router, but there is an excellent YouTube video for setting it up as well as how to set up the clients. The W10 client is simple and doesn't require any command-line interaction.  After setting it up, you click to connect, and click to disconnect.  The complexity is in the small file that you distribute to the user.  It is generated for you by the RPi software.  The end users click to import to get running. 

 The steps for W10 users are as follows:

1) Download OpenVPN W10 client from the OpenVPN Community website.  It's free. 
2) Install the client.  It will error complaining of no credentials. 
3) Right-click the icon and import the credentials file. 
4) Right-click the icon, enter the password,  and connect.
5) Run N3FJP Network as if it is on your private local network.  


If you are interested, here is the YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15VjDVCISj0&t=1094s
Starts with Installing PIVPN.  Installing OpenVPN Client on W10 is at 20:00

Link to PIVPN VPN Endpoint: https://pivpn.io     The cut-and-paste command to install is prominently displayed at the top of the page.  

Link to OpenVPN W10 Community Client:  https://openvpn.net/community-downloads/  Choose the bottom most 'Orange Balloon' to download.  

Let me know if there is interest for a FAQ document.
