Re: Under eLogs/LOTW ALL DATA no longer works properly

Jim Shorney
 

I have never used ALL DATA. Just ALL SINCE and CONFIRMED SINCE. These often bring in new confirmations for QSOs up to 20 years old (my log starts in 1999). I occasionally roll back the CONFIRMED SINCE date back a few months and it sometimes picks up a straggler or two.

When I use ALL DATA now it only confirms the previous days QSO's. It used to scan my logs and update QSO's 5, 10 15 years old and take 10 or 15 minutes.
This started about a month ago, I made no changes to ACLog. It's worked as it should for 3 years then it didn't the next day.

Re: FTDX3000 Using N3FJP and SDRUNO

JR,
Thanks so very much for the info about VSPE (Virtual Serial Port Emulator). I installed it, set it up and it works great with ACLOG, my FTDX 3000  and SDRUNO. Been trying to figure out how to do this for sometime. The function keys still work for CW. 
Thanks again,

Re: Help with VSPE

Angelo,
I'm using VSPE successfully to share or "split" the single com port on my TS-590SG with several applications on my PC including ACLOG and WSJT-X.  Attached is a screen shot of my VSPE splitter configuration.  Hopefully the picture will provide the help needed.  The baud rate is obviously your choice.  Just be sure the 590 and all applications are set to the same rate.  Also remember that the 590 has to be completely powered down and restarted for a baud rate change to take effect.

I think VSPE must sense the processor type and therefore requires a license if it is 64 bit.  Also, you may want to consider using a higher COM number for the virtual serial port just to assure no conflict with other COM ports on your PC.

Good luck,
Dave, K8WDA

The contacts I have in N3FJP AC are all under my current call VE3QN. As I am migrating from my previous logging program, I can also create an ADIF file for contacts made under my previous calls. The ADIF file will show the previous call. N3FJP has an "Operator" column. So, for example, were I to import an ADIF file for VE3RBE should I assume the contacts would be integrated into the AC log and show VE3RBE in the "Operator" column? If so, that's what I am hoping for.

Re: Help with VSPE

Thanks for the help Mike. I will try your response in a bit. I did get ACLOG running already but was having issues with WSJT-X.

In any case a forgot I ran a computer profile prior to reloading. There is a free product called Belarc Advisor that will give you a comprehensive computer profile. On it I found I was running Fabulatech and it even had the product key listed. I suggest everyone should run this and keep it. 


Re: Help with VSPE

Mike Seguin
 

Angelo,

I run VSPE here.

Create a Splitter of COM 3 -- COM 13
Make sure baud rate is set correctly
Next, point all your software to COM 13

Once you have it working, save the VSPE configuration. File - Save as.

To auto launch, I created a shortcut to VSPE.exe and placed it in my Windoze "startup" folder.

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

In the target field of the shortcut, I added the location of the config file saved above along with a couple of command line switches.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Eterlogic.com\Virtual Serial Ports Emulator (64 bit)\VSPEmulator.exe" e:\n1jez.vspe -minimize -hide_splash

Using VSPE, I run ACLOG, N1MM+, Writelog, WSJT-X etc in any combination with no conflicts.

Hope this helps.

Mike

Also I downloaded both the 32bit and 64bit and they both ask for a 64bit license which I do not mind paying for if working. Also the trial version I cannot get to autoload on bootup. Is that a trial restriction, non-option, or something else I have not done properly.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your follow up,  The reason you can upload, but not download is explained on the FAQ I sent in my previous reply.  Here is the full text from that FAQ, that include detailed trouble shooting steps:

Your TQSL software actually does the upload, so it is not surprising that uploads can work when downloads won't, since your user name and password values are only referenced when downloading. In 99.99% of cases, the problem is that you have mistyped your LoTW user name or password (typically the values you use when signing in to LoTW on line).
It is very common for folks to emphatically assure me that they have typed their LoTW user name and password in correctly, only to discover, after trading multiple e-mails, that they did not enter correct values after all. It could be a mistyped character, the wrong case, or even just a leading or trailing space in the field. If you aren't sure of your LoTW password, please correct that here.

Unless something external to AC Log is blocking the download, everything related to downloading from LoTW is on the LoTW form. Please try clearing out your existing user name and password values and then carefully type them in again. Also please be aware that ARRL made a change in September, 2016 that now enforces case sensitivity.
Be sure to select an LoTW password that only uses letters and numbers. Stay away from special characters such as (@, !, #, etc).

If that doesn't correct the problem, please try this:

On the LoTW form, select the option to display raw data and try a download. A successful download will look like this:

If you don't see something like the above, but rather web page HTML, the most likely cause is that your LoTW user name and / or LoTW password are incorrectly entered. Correcting the information entered as detailed in Steps 1 and 2 here will do the trick (also, make sure you don't have any leading or trailing spaces in your user name or password).

If that doesn't correct the problem, carefully follow all the remaining steps detailed here. Steps 1 through 6 are the only LoTW download related settings in my software. There is nothing else to change or check.

If you are still having trouble, something external to AC Log is at play. The most likely possibility is that your Internet protection software is blocking AC Log from accessing LoTW. Giving AC Log the proper permissions in your Internet protection software will correct that.

Enjoy!

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you've run into trouble.  I just did a download here and the records came down fine.

Click the option to Display Raw Data on AC Log's LoTW form, so you can trouble shoot as detailed here:



Enjoy!

Yesterday I uploaded my log  and today I went to the lotw page and the contacts are there.  When I tried to download to AC log, I get this message "Error Retrieving Web Data"  
The LoTW Server didn't respond correctly.  The LoTW service may be down, or your user name and password aren't entered correctly.  After checking ARRL's LoTW page to verify LoTW is up and running, make sure that your user name and password are properly entered and that there aren't any leading or trailing spaces.

I was able to log into Lotw ok and see my contacts.  I checked my user name and password, all ok there.  I'll check again later this afternoon in case they are doing maintenance or if you suggest something else let me know.   

Thanks,

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your follow up.  There is nothing on AC Log's LoTW form that would preclude you from typing in the password field.

And yes, your OS must be Win 7 or later.  Details on that are here:

I tried to change the password twice but it would not let me.  I followed the directions.  One last question.  Last year when I changed to AC log, you told me there might be a problem with downloading because I'm using XP.  I just thought of that but cannot remember the context to the issue at that time.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your follow up,  The reason you can upload, but not download is explained on the FAQ I sent in my previous reply.  Here is the full text from that FAQ, that include detailed trouble shooting steps:

Your TQSL software actually does the upload, so it is not surprising that uploads can work when downloads won't, since your user name and password values are only referenced when downloading. In 99.99% of cases, the problem is that you have mistyped your LoTW user name or password (typically the values you use when signing in to LoTW on line).
It is very common for folks to emphatically assure me that they have typed their LoTW user name and password in correctly, only to discover, after trading multiple e-mails, that they did not enter correct values after all. It could be a mistyped character, the wrong case, or even just a leading or trailing space in the field. If you aren't sure of your LoTW password, please correct that here.

Unless something external to AC Log is blocking the download, everything related to downloading from LoTW is on the LoTW form. Please try clearing out your existing user name and password values and then carefully type them in again. Also please be aware that ARRL made a change in September, 2016 that now enforces case sensitivity.
Be sure to select an LoTW password that only uses letters and numbers. Stay away from special characters such as (@, !, #, etc).

If that doesn't correct the problem, please try this:

On the LoTW form, select the option to display raw data and try a download. A successful download will look like this:

If you don't see something like the above, but rather web page HTML, the most likely cause is that your LoTW user name and / or LoTW password are incorrectly entered. Correcting the information entered as detailed in Steps 1 and 2 here will do the trick (also, make sure you don't have any leading or trailing spaces in your user name or password).

If that doesn't correct the problem, carefully follow all the remaining steps detailed here. Steps 1 through 6 are the only LoTW download related settings in my software. There is nothing else to change or check.

If you are still having trouble, something external to AC Log is at play. The most likely possibility is that your Internet protection software is blocking AC Log from accessing LoTW. Giving AC Log the proper permissions in your Internet protection software will correct that.

Enjoy!

Re: Can I Edit The DX Spotting Columns?

Hi.  I can help you eliminate FT4 and FT8 DX spots but I’m afraid you will have to put up with CW spots (thank God).  Let me know if you are interested.

I like the DX Spotting function but I'm not in the least interested in making CW contacts. Is there a way to edit the Modes to not show CW DX's?
