I run a K3 with ACLog just as you do.  I would highly recommend getting yourself a Winkeyer box and let it handle the CW chores.  It really is the easiest way to make CW work flawlessly with ACLog in my opinion.  ACLog is already set-up to handle the Winkeyer interface, you just need the box.

Here is my issue:   2 computers.   1 log.Instead of using a thumb drive to backup then restore,  cant I just do a upload to eQSL or LOTW,   then from the other computer do a full download?Or somesuch.  ???
Frankly, on an intermittent basis, using a thumb drive is probably fastest.  More importantly, the entirety of your log database will be transferred including any comments and notes you may have entered and not ONLY the fields the online logging sites have set up.
I maintain my log and data files on a NAS (Network Accessible Storage) drive separate from the internal drives in the computers.  It is a feature of my Netgear routers called Readyshare®.  This works the same as the AClog networking setup except there isn't a "server" computer.  This way, I can work on my logs from any computer that can access my LAN. 

A big plus of this approach is there is never an issue of syncing the logs because there is only ONE log file.  I've been using this approach for years and it has saved my bacon more than once when the computer's HDD gets wonky and has to be replaced or rebuilt.

In the settings of N3FJP is a setting called "Connection Power", it is
under the Rig Interface settings. Turn it to off.

Re: Two computers..

The way I do it is just save the file in "Google Drive". "One Drive", and probably others would work the same way if you have that.

The catches:
1. Both machines need internet
2. You need to give the file a few minutes to sync between computers after you close it
C. Both computers can't have the file open at the same time

It works, and is way easier than saving/loading from a thumb drive every time.

Re: CQ WPX Contest Software Not Working Properly #contest

Hi Scott,
When I go into the Rig Interface in the CQ WPX log program, the software locks up, so I don't think I'll be able to do what your suggesting. Will it work if I instead copy the RigSettings.xml from AC Log to the CQ WPX log folder?  If that will work, I just need some guidance on how to find the folder for the CQ WPX log were the rigsettting.xml file is located. Once I can find the right folder, it will be easy to copy over the RigSettings.xml from AC Log. 
Thanks,
~ David

Hi David,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Please do the following:

-  Start AC Log.
-  While polling your rig, click the Save Settings button below the rig list.
-  Close AC Log.
-  Start WPX, Click File > Show File Locations and note the location of your Settings files.
-  Close WPX.
-  With Windows Explorer, navigate to the Settings folder and delete RigSettings.xml.
-  Start WPX
-  Click Settings > Rig Interface.
-  Click the Load Settings button under the rig list and select the file you saved from AC Log.

Enjoy!

I downloaded the CW WPX contest software today and Im having problems with the rig interface. First time I went to the Rig Interface set up, I set it exactly like AC Log, which works great. When I tried testing the connection, the program locked up; I had to reboot to get it to shut down.  Now every time I go to the rig interface screen, the program locks up; I have to reboot the computer to get the program to shut down. I uninstalled and reinstalled with no change; the program still locks up whenever I go to the rig interface screen.

I noticed that some of the settings weren't removed during the uninstall/reinstall process - it still remembers my key code, and it remembers the interface settings I was using.  Is there a process to totally remove all the settings for a clean install, and will it help?

Contest is next weekend, so really glad I'm testing this weekend.
Thanks,

Re: Error starting TCP Application Program Interface

Scott Davis
 

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The default port in my software is 1100.  It sounds as if your security software is clamping down on AC Log's ability to open the port.  A second alternative is that another program has hold of the port.

More details on connecting digital programs with my software are here:


I hope that this helps!

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Error starting TCP Application Program Interface

My computer picked up a bad program while I was playing the Microsoft solitaire games, which the MS security regime fortunately detected (it was identified as PWS:MSIL:OnLineGames.NW!bit — a password stealer).  I allowed the security program to quarantine and delete it, so the threat is gone.  However, it had infected a number of  my ham radio applications, including AClog and the FlexRadio software.  I’ve got things put back together at least partially, to the extent where I can make contacts using WSJT-X.  But the TCP API isn’t working yet, so I had to enter my last couple contacts manually in ACLog.
When I open up ACLog, it tells me that there was an error starting the TCP API, which I generally understand.  In trying to fix it, I see that WSJT-X shows the UDP Server port number as 2237.  It correctly identifies the name of my computer.  What I’m wondering is whether the port number is correct or whether this was one of the things that the security software rendered inoperable to remove the bad program.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Bill — KA6T


Re: Error starting TCP Application Program Interface

Jim Shorney
 

Check to see that something else didn't claim the ACL port number. I had a similar TCP error a few days ago after I restarted my Win7 box. Some investigating found that Dropbox had camped out on the default ACL TCP API port 1100. I changed the ACL port number wherever necessary to something else that was free and all was good.

Very sorry it wasn’t the answer you were hoping for.

 

There are two clubs in El Paso.  One is a bunch of grumpy old guys that only believe in HF, the other club is very active in everything.  Which club did you test at….   W5ES or K5WPH?

I know a few people around Silver City, but more 4X4 guys than radio guys.

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.
