No. Good until 2022. But its start date is 06/17/2019 which is after the date when uploads stopped. ???

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your follow up.  You will send your first year attending the Hamvention, so you can ignore the serial number sent and log the received year in the serial number received field.   

Enjoy!

Hi Ken and All,

I just did a quick scan through the programs.  While I think IARU HF is an option, when you transfer your QSOs to AC Log, you are going to have a lot of unwanted values in the zone field.

Please take a look at the RAC software.  It will dupe check both modes (since this is a SSB / CW event) and will not invade your zone fields with bad data on transfer:

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the great information!  That might work, as no Cabrillo file is required.  Scores are just entered on 3830.

    I have an interesting idea, use the program for the IARU HF contest. The exchange for the IARU HF contest is RST and ITU zone. I tested and the the N3FJP program will accept various numbers between 1952 and 2020 for ITU zone, those numbers are the years of the Hamvention. You can ignore the score since there are no multipliers.

Re: LOTW not showing uploads from ACLOG

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  Assuming you are clicking the All Contacts Not Uploaded button under Sign and Upload on AC Log's LoTW form and your TQSL software is reporting Success(0), then the communication from AC Log to TQSL was successful.  If that's the case, you'll need to check with ARRL why TQSL reported success but your records are not on the LoTW site.

Otherwise, step by step details for configuring TQSL with my software are here:


Good luck!

After thinking a minute or two it might be easier to use the Pfx field for the Province code since that already correctly calculates the multiplier and it is a single country contest.  Then you can just eliminate the R# field and it is all done!!

Thanks for the reports.  Yes, I just tried it and got the same results here as well.  Obviously nothing changed with AC Log.  Apparently there is either a problem with the LoTW server, or ARRL has intentionally reconfigured the server's behavior, presumably to reduced demand on the server.

Using ACLog 6.6, LoTW Manager 1.9.
I do an "all confirmed" for LOTW several times a year. Doing that this morning it was extremely quick. Looking at the raw data, the start date was 2020-03-04. Coincidentally, that was the last time I updated the log. I tried that with all three of my callsighns and the result was the same. The only way I could get a complete history was to to a "confirmed since" and change the date to the date of the original callsign issue.
Is my config hosed or is there something else going on?

Re: Question for the Polish contest this weekend

Stephen,

I just ran a small simulation using WPX and it looks like it will work fine.  Score talleys as it should per there rules.  The serial number field can be the SN we send so they match.  Should work just fine!

Have fun.  I'm going to try it even though I am only running 100 watts to a dipole.  Can only work 40, 20, 15, and 10.

Tom, K0YA

Is there a program that will 'accommodate' their exchange.

Looks like the WPX program would possibly work

just enter 1 for contact #,  and enter the province for prefix

Any Comments  or Suggestions ????

EXCHANGE GROUPS:
  • Polish stations send a report, consisting of a signal report (RS or RST) plus the letter of the province designator (e.g., 59 B). The 16 province designators are: B, C, D, F, G, J, K, L, M, O, P, R, S, U, W and Z.
  • Foreign stations send a report consisting of a signal report (RS or RST) plus contact number beginning with 001 (e.g., 59 001).


Thanks,   Steve  K4ELI

In ACLog, a serial field with serial++, reset to zero button, and short-cut to add serial to the CW function keys would be great.   Cabrillio could be 'an exercise left to the reader'.

I've never been able to use "All Confirmed".  I have over 60K QSOs and I've never been able to do an all confirmed under normal conditions never mind when the net is being taxed to the max.  I'm amazed the net is still up. The IT industry is doing an amazing job.  All of America is doing amazing things.

Hi All,

Thanks for the reports.  Yes, I just tried it and got the same results here as well.  Obviously nothing changed with AC Log.  Apparently there is either a problem with the LoTW server, or ARRL has intentionally reconfigured the server's behavior, presumably to reduced demand on the server.

Re: Hamvention QSO Party

Scott Davis
 

Hi Ken and All,

I just did a quick scan through the programs.  While I think IARU HF is an option, when you transfer your QSOs to AC Log, you are going to have a lot of unwanted values in the zone field.

Please take a look at the RAC software.  It will dupe check both modes (since this is a SSB / CW event) and will not invade your zone fields with bad data on transfer:

Seriously, please take a good look and see if this program:



Will support these contest rules:


Please let me know what you think.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the great information!  That might work, as no Cabrillo file is required.  Scores are just entered on 3830.

Thanks for thinking outside the box!  :)

    I have an interesting idea, use the program for the IARU HF contest. The exchange for the IARU HF contest is RST and ITU zone. I tested and the the N3FJP program will accept various numbers between 1952 and 2020 for ITU zone, those numbers are the years of the Hamvention. You can ignore the score since there are no multipliers.

    Just a crazy idea, I wonder if the Cabrillo file would be acceptable.

    What does everybody think about this?

Hi Mitch,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I would love to write a program for the Hamvention QSO Party, but there just aren't enough hours in the day.  With over 100 individually customized logging programs that I am supporting already, along with all the daily e-mail questions, I have to be sure to only add programs to the package that will continue to be widely used beyond one year.

Please see this link for more details here:


I'm sorry that I didn't have the answer that you were hoping for.

That said, your score is just the number of QSOs, so you could log your contact activity in AC Log.

Enjoy!
