Anybody help?

I started with the software on one machine then later picked up a smaller machine for portable operations.  I tried to ensure that I downloaded from the new machine and added those contacts into my main computer.  Somewhere along the line i missed some and now I don't have a clean log that actually shows all of the contacts i have logged.  If I just dump all of the contacts from my portable log into the main one at once, will I get a bunch of duplicates since i have uploaded most of them at various times?  I guess my main question is this - can I easily deal with duplicate contacts somehow.  Once I get a clean log in my main computer I will make sure to keep them in sync.

Hi K4CTQ,

Thanks for your e-mail.  From AC Log's menu options settings > List Matches for These Fields with Tab and make sure Call is selected.  All previous QSOs with the current call will be listed when you tab from the call field and the total will display at the upper right.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Repeat contacts

Hello, I am new to the group so please excuse me if this subject has been addressed before.
I have been using the software for years and I may be missing something but does the software let you know that you how many times you log the same contact? I know when I log a new contact I see the new contact flag but nothing else.
I hear some operators making a contact and state We have talked 3 times before and state the dates and frequencies. So in short is this software capable of doing the same?
Thanks for any input and excuse me for rambling on.

Re: QSL county not downloading from LOTW

Scott Davis
 

Hi R.J.,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Yes, you can click the option on the LoTW form to overwrite existing data.  That said, you probably don't want to.  Folks move, etc.  Your perfectly valid QSO with one county / state may be incorrectly updated if the station uploads his records again, signed with a new cert from his new QTH, if you enable that option.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] QSL county not downloading from LOTW

This evening I was looking at my QSL'ed counties in my AC Log and I noted that a friend of mine and I had a contact QSL'ed in LOTW and he was in a different county than his home QTH.  In LOTW the contact shows his actual county that the contact was made in, however in my AC Log, all of my contacts with him list his home QTH county.

Is there a way in AC Log to have the actual location information updated as noted in LOTW?  I am pretty sure that when I make satellite contacts, the QSL'ed grid square gets updated in AC Log.  I am hoping to do the same with the county.

Thank you all for the help in advance.

IC-7300, fldigi, N3FJP logging, and K1EL Winkeyer, RTTY (or CW) contest setup for new fldigi

Bo W4GHV
 

Here's my latest version, for the latest fldigi which has significant changes in the config menu. Hoping I have it all correct. Some strange things happening, but it works

 
RTTY setup with Winkeyer, IC-7300 RTTY mode/decode, fldigi, N3FJP logging
  3/17/20 W4GHV update for fldigi version 4.1.09   major changes
 
1. deleted.
2. Using the Wktools program, check Winkeyer com port, test it, EXIT. I have user2 set for RTTY.
3. Start fldigi, config, contests, general. Pick the desired contest. If ‘no contest’ is your option, you can attempt to use the N3FJP normal logging program. Start the desired N3FJP program.
4. Select RTTY mode on fldigi AND the Icom.
5. fldigi config, rig control, (CAT) Rigcat.
 
6. Fldigi config,operating, active modem, TTY, Winkeyer3, connect, (PC Com1 for my Winkeyer), FSK port On KEY, mark normal, diddle on, echo Off, save, close. NOTE THE RTTY CABLE GOING TO THE RIG IS IN THE PTT JACK, NOT THE KEY JACK!!!
 
7. fldigi config, save config. EXIT fldigi, restart!   IMPORTANT
 
8. Fldigi config, misc, sweet spot set to 2210 AFC OFF when using fldigi & the rig in RTTY mode.
9. Fldigi config,logging, N3FJP logs,Enable Data Stream,connect.
10. You should get N3FJP & Winkeyer connected messages on fldigi.
10. Tune signals ON THE ICOM using the decode/waterfall. Signal should appear at 2210 on fldigi. A 350 Hz filter setting on the Icom works great.
11. Operate fldigi as normal. Its macros or stored messages on the Icom work equally well.
12. RTTY tuning/selecting is BETTER on the ICOM vs the mouse with fldigi.
13. RTTY reception was BETTER on FLDIGI a couple times. None of the ICOM RTTY settings have been altered.
14. Basically for this setup the Winkeyer was only used to provide FSK for the Icom in RTTY mode. It can also be used in the standalone mode for RTTY (to be tested soon, IF I ever hear RTTY during non-contests)
15. Another option. Set the Icom filter to 3kHz, select the signal on the fldigi waterfall, then hit the QSY icon to take the signal to the sweet spot. Handy! AFC works in this mode.
 
Notes:
1. Do QRZ or something to test. Hitting TUNE does not show RTTY operation. (Learned the hard way. No diddles in TUNE)
2. I found fldigi needed to be in the REVERSE mode to copy properly when set up in the RTTY (not USB-D) mode. 
3. This operation can also be used to do 'normal' CW with both the Icom & fldigi in CW mode by picking the other Pin on the Winkeyer. Complete info on setting the Winkeyer up for both modes is on the K1EL site.

Re: dx spotting in FT8

Scott Davis
 

Hi John,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Only call and frequency are sent to the DX Spotting telnet site (mode is not part of the post at all).  Any other filtering is either in your AC Log settings, or your provider.

In AC Log, click the More Filtering button on the DX Spotting set up form and make sure your settings are allowing digital spots.  Also check any settings with your provider as well.

Enjoy!

Hi
I've been trying to get N3FJP to send into to a spot site.  I monitor DXSummit.  I find that when I am on FT4, my spots are listed automatically.  If I switch to FT8, they are not.
I can find no toggle, etc that would differentiate logging behavior between FT4 and FT8.  ACLog USED to log my FT8 spots.
My setup is WSJT-X 2.1.0, JTAlert 2.15.7 and ACLog 6.6
Your thoughts?

I used the band map “block….” For the first time after many, many years, and found it very useful, finding stations that had only been spotted minimally.  Will be using more often.  Once a “runner” has been worked, he never shows again unless he moves to a different portion of the band.

I spent the weekend using the WIQP log. Prefer it to N1MM -- but, there are 2 features of N1MM I wish I had back.

  1. I operate Search and Pounce (S&P). I listen, enter the log info into the log -- work  the station -- Press Enter to Log the Q. Sometimes though, the pileup is just too large and I click on another station on my panadapter planning to come back later. Once I change frequency, N1MM erases the log entry. I like that. Could your log do that too?
  2. When I click on a frequency on the panadapter, N1MM displays the station you already worked on that frequency. If I am Searching & Pouncing, I then don't waste time waiting for the "running" station to ID -- I go merrily on my way. I think N1MM remembers if you actually worked the station before and might use a color code to remind you to either skip this station or you waited around before (see above) and didn't work him.

Your answer could be -- well then use N1MM -- OK I could do that, but if you ever add this feature to your log it would be about perfect!

Re: New Feature(s)

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your e-mail.  There isn't a way to block duplicates on the list, only the band map.  Additionally, while you can use it for entities confirmed in AC Log, it is mostly applicable to specific call signs in the contest software that, if worked again, would be identified as duplicates in your log.  In either case, it doesn't hide duplicate unworked spots.

Scott,

I see multiple spots for the same station On the lower panel of the log which I believe is the Bandmap. Sometimes 5-6. spots. You said to go to the more filter section and block duplicates but I  cannot find a check box with that name. Would you please provide the exact wording of the applicable box. Thanks so much.

**  Thanks for using my software.  I'm really happy you liked it!  :)

  1. I operate Search and Pounce (S&P). I listen, enter the log info into the log -- work  the station -- Press Enter to Log the Q.

**  I don't have any Flex equipment here, so my ability to code for the panadapter specifically is limited.  My software interfaces with Flex via their DLL.  If you click on a spot on my software's band map, my software will clear the previous call and tune immediately to the spot frequency.
  1. When I click on a frequency on the panadapter, N1MM displays the station you already worked on that frequency. If I am Searching & Pouncing, I then don't waste time waiting for the "running" station to ID -- I go merrily on my way.

**  For the band map, on the DX Spotting set up form, click the More Filter button and then enable the option to block duplicates.  Again, I understand that you are asking about the panadapter.  If I ever wind up with a rig with a panadapter, I will see what I can do.

Thanks again for your suggestions!
