Thanks Mike.
I guess a thumb drive is the answer afterall.

btw,  I drove to ElPaso to take my tech exam a few years ago.    That is a great club shack you all have !!

I spend a lot of time in Silver City and one of the hams there got me interested in ACLog....    love it !


Re: Two computers..

Mike Olbrisch
 

Well, yes.  But really, no.

 

There is a lot of information in the AC-Log file that is not kept in LoTW.  Frequency and comments come to mind.  Furthermore, it the other station doesn’t include their county, grid or ITU and CQ zones, you will lose that too.

 

I don’t have a clue about E-QSL.  I do a lot of portable operating, and E-QSL makes it too difficult to change locations.

 

If your two computers are networked, why not keep the log on one and just access it from the other.

Instead of making a backup file and moving it to the other computer,  couldn’t I just
upload to LOTW or eQSL then go to the other and download the file from same site?

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your e-mail.  If you are only interested in the essential elements of the QSO record, sure (LoTW does not store all the fields available in AC Log).

Otherwise, if you have not networked your computers, this is the best approach:

Re: UTC Off

Dale Holloway, K4EQ
 

Oh my goodness. This is totally embarrassing!! I was thinking with the change to CDST we went from 5 to 6 hours difference from UTC. It's the other way around. I knew better and have been logging in UTC for almost 60 years. Thanks for waking me up, Now, please excuse me while I go hide in my closet for a while.

Hi all
Is it possible to filter out all unconfirmed QSO’s in my log?

Ideal would be if I can see all the countries I worked but which haven’t confirmed, then filter down to all QSO’s from those unconfirmed countries.

Re: Filter unconfirmed QSO's

Christopher Scibelli
 

I think that's possible but I'm not an expert with AC Log.  

I upload my log to Clublog.  I use LoTW and download the data from their site.  I can see which QSOs have been submitted and given credit by the ARRL, and I can see those QSOs which are worked but not confirmed as well as those countries or slots I still need to work.  It's a big help.

Rino,

I know what you're looking for and I have resolved it myself.  Firstly, if you have prior CWOps contest logs saved, you can reopen each of those and select the History files as Scott described earlier and then exit the program; the program will add all the QSO info from that file into ContestHistory.txt.  Repeat that for any additional CWOps (or any N3FJP contest log you have) and the info from each those will be added and the file continue to build as Scott stated.  As ContestHistory very conveniently simply overwrites new data on top of the prior with each new contest, make sure you do this from oldest file to newest so that when done, you have the latest data for everyone in your ContestHistory file.

OR

What you can do is create your own ContestHistory.txt file.  If you're reasonably proficient Excel, you can create your own ContestHistory.txt file from the N3FJP file.  You will need to download from CWOps their membership roster into an Excel file.  From there, get rid of all but callsign, name and CWOps#.  Save a copy of the N3FJP ContestHistory.txt under a different name; this is what you'll use to modify to include all the CWOps member info.  Open the file in Excel.  Very carefully study the format of the ContestHistory.txt, the organization of the columns, the formatting (I think all text is in ""; can't recall now).  You can place all the info from the CWOps membership roster into the appropriate ContestHistory.txt column; you can add this to the bottom of the ContestHistory rows (you'll sort later).  Make sure you enter a date in correct format in the Date column.  When you have all the callsigns in the callsign column, name in name, CWOps# in CWOps column, then select All and sort on callsign.  You WILL have to review ALL the listings, looking for any dupes (two rows with same callsign), you'll need to copy and paste the CWOps info into the N3FJP listing for each of these duplicate callsigns, then delete the unneeded row.  Go through all of it.  When you're done, save as a .txt. file making sure any "" are in the correct place etc. (this is always the trickiest part for me); if I recall, I think I may have to use the CONCATENATE function in Excel.  If happy with all, again copy the original ContestHistory.txt file to a safe location and rename your file ContestHistory.txt and save it.  Open a CWT contest log and enter a few callsigns you know are CWOps and make sure the name and # auto-fill into the correct fields.  It's a little tedious, but once you do it the first time, updating it every few months to pick up new members is much easier.

Hope this helps.

Re: UTC Off

Hi Dale,

Thanks for your e-mail.  My software reads the UTC time directly from your OS.  There is nothing to change or set in AC Log.  As long as your OS settings are correct, you will be fine.  More details are here:

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but, nevertheless, I'm missing it. I live in the Central time zone and just discovered that my log is displaying a 5-hour difference between UTC and CDST. The difference should be 6 hours. My Windows 10 settings are correct. I display two clocks on the computer, one Central Daylight and one UTC, and they correctly display a 6-hour difference between them. But, when my computer displays 0200 UTC, my log displays 0100 UTC. I cannot find a setting in ACLog to change this. I assume this problem began when Daylight Savings Time kicked in. What am I missing here?

UTC is the Zulu time zone. central standard time is the Sierra time zone zulu-6, central daylight time is the romeo time zone zulu-5. so your 5 hour offset is correct
