Re: ACLog not reading FT-857D CW mode correctly

Scott Davis
 

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  I don't have any Yaesu equipment here myself, but according to reports from other users, the Yaesu Older setting should work with the 857.

The Yaesu Older code is one of the oldest sections of rig interface code in my software, works with a number of older Yaesu rigs and has not changed in years, so something specific to your setup appears to have changed.

The values the rig returns are mapped as follows with the Yaesu Older selection:

       case 0:
                strMode = "LSB";
                        break;
                        case 1:
                strMode = "USB";
                            break;
                        case 2:
                    strMode = "CW";
                            break;
                        case 3:
                   strMode = "CW";
                            break;
                        case 4:
                  strMode = "AM";
                            break;
                        case 8:
                  strMode = "FM";
                 break;
                        case 82:
                 strMode = "CW";
                     break;
                        case 83:
                 strMode = "CW";
                 break;
                        case 84:
                 strMode = "AM";
                            break;
                        case 88:
                 strMode = "FM";
                            break;
                  case 10:
                          strMode = "DIG";
                            break;
                   case 12:
                   strMode = "PKT";

I hope this helps!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] ACLog not reading FT-857D CW mode correctly

Came across a weird one today. I am thinking a bug. While scanning some CW frequencies on 20 and 40 meters, I noticed ACLog would indicate SSB for the mode while the radio was in CW mode. It was reading the freq correct though. I reloaded the rig interface settings that I had saved, checked them against those listed on the N3FJP web page and they seem correct. I can change the mode on the radio and every mode other than CW displays correctly. When I get the radio back to CW mode, ACLog displays SSB again. I thought maybe my radio is messed up and thought about factory resetting it  . . . . Before doing that, I downloaded Winlog32 and set it up it's rig interface. It reads the freq and mode correctly, including CW mode on the radio. So that leaves ACLog as the possible culprit. I can change the mode setting to be according to freq on N#FJP and that works. But it's easier to have the software read the mode.  I recently upgraded to ver 6.5. I know it used to work correctly with earlier versions . . . But I can't say for sure that is when the behavior started exactly. 


IC-7610 RTTY logs

Bo Barry <bobarr@...>
 

Anyone used these?  Wondering if I could do the next contest using only the rig and ACL,  with a minimum of pencil. 
Typing post contest is OK if the log can't be stuffed into ACL. 
Previously I used the rig in RTTY mode (not USB-D)  with fldigi at the sweet spot only and used it for pencil less logging into ACL.  Worked fine.

Re: QRZ Error Message

The link to QRZ just needs to be reestablished. You don’t need to log in again. Just reset your cursor at the end of the call in the call field and hit the space bar to refill the rest of the fields. The QRZ link will be reestablished.

Or if you want to do a bit more work, hit esc to clear the field and retype the call and then hit the space bar.

Re: Installation Errors

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Please go ahead and upgrade the version of AC Log on your desktop before exporting your log.  Details as to why are here:

http://www.n3fjp.com/news/news2019-05-09.html

Regarding the count, you likely deleted a few QSOs along the way without resetting your counter (which is fine).  If you want the counters to match, click File > Reset Counter and enter the higher number (the highest QSO record number).  It will be reset to the lower number after processing, assuming there are unused record numbers.

Enjoy!

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Installation Errors

Hi all,

I installed the latest version of AC Log on my laptop in order to use it in the field or on travel. Two problems have arisen:

1. The number of QSO's listed on the laptop differs from the number of QSO's on my main station PC, 1919 vs. 1942.
2. All FT4 QSO's are misidentified as MFSK.

Any ideas as to why this is so? TQSL is the latest version, as is AC Log. LoTW is set up correctly for QSO download/upload.
All help is GREATLY appreciated!

Re: QRZ Error Message

W5DET
 

What is being reset is called a SESSION_COOKIE which the website sets in your browser.  There is typically a timer associated with these cookies in order to prevent a host of dead connections which still tie up server resources.  I can't speak to how QRZ.com sets their Session Cookies, but the Session Timeout message is a result of the inactivity period exceeding a preset timeout value.  Session Cookies are definitely not unique to QRZ.

Re: QRZ Error Message

Dan Morris
 

That is exactly what I do.  Sometimes when AC Log is up for a while it appears/seems like QRZ times out or something. So, I just click on ESC key to clear everything and then type in the Call and click on TAB and it just starts working fine.  No need to close out AC Log at all.

Hi Guys,

If QRZ times out, it is not necessary to close AC Log to reconnect.  Just close the error message, tab through the call field again with a valid call and AC Log will automatically reconnect.

Glad I’m not the only one having problems with QRZ.   My issue is I have to log on to QRZ more often than I would like.  I can understand being forced to logon maybe twice a year but more than that is a pain in the a**.  I’ve been keeping track of it and here is my experience in the last two months:

Morning Paul.
 
I get the same error.  I am not certain if the computer going to sleep has as much to do with it as the time elapsed since the last QRZ database access.  I get this error early in the morning after sleeping all night, but I sometimes get it after logging the local 80m guys at 5-am, then late in the afternoon making another contact.  It seems if I make several contacts spread through-out the day (like SOTA chasing) that the database is “kept alive” by the periodic use.  The computer often goes to sleep between entries, but the error only appears after a prolonged sleep.  I’ve not bothered to try to time it.
 
What frustrates me more is this.  I have a computer dedicated to logging and digital.  I’ve told that computer to “Remember”
my credentials for QRZ.  But every now and then it forgets something and I have to manually log into QRZ again.  That doesn’t happen real often.  Not even monthly.  But even once is more than I intended.  I use strange passwords, and I don’t trust password management programs, so when it does this I have to look it up every time.
 
I’ll leave you with this.  To err is human….. but to really foul things up takes a computer.

Thank you for your response Scott,

"

Sessions

The QRZ XML server maintains login/logout state information on for each user through the use of a session key. Upon successful login, an encrypted session key is returned to the client application which must be cached so that it can be used with subsequent data requests to the server.

Session keys are unique and are recreated each time a user logs in. A session key is valid for only one user at a time, logging in from a single IP address.

Session keys are temporary in nature and may be valid up to 24 hours. Whenever a user logs in, any previously issued session keys are invalidated. A session key may also be invalidated at any time by the server, so client applications should be prepared to re-login at any time."

These timeout errors are within a 8-10 hour period.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] QRZ Error Message

 


Scott,

Is this error as a result of my computer going to "sleep"


"There was an error accessing the QRZ internet database. Session Timeout."

Or is there some other explanation?

That is quiet alright Scott.  (Sorry I called you steve in the post, duh).  I am quite happy with the Winkeyer integration into ACLog.  Its very nice


Re: Winkeyer Setup

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your e-mail.  The actual text boxes don't resize with the form.  That is intentional, so that folks who only want to display the first few can do so and make the whole form smaller without making the individual text boxes too small.

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

Enjoy!

I have my Winkeyer setup and working great with ACLog.  Its very cool.  Nice work Steve! 

I have one question which there may or may not be a solution for:

Question:  Can the CW mini form (below) be widened  (the window of the form) a few inches so that I could see the whole CW message that I have configured for the F function key?  Is there any way to adjust the window size like you can with the main ACLog interface?

Thanks,

Re: QRZ Error Message

Hi Guys,

If QRZ times out, it is not necessary to close AC Log to reconnect.  Just close the error message, tab through the call field again with a valid call and AC Log will automatically reconnect.

Enjoy!

I never log out of QRZI just “red X” out to close the program.  That way, ACL is always able to bring up the other stations info

Sorry my tracking is not that detailed.  It’s just frustrating when you’re in a hurry and you want to look up QSL info on a rare one and QRZ won’t give you the address until you log on.  You then log on and figure that’s the end of it but a couple of days later you have to logon again.

Good morning Pat.
 
Have you noticed or can you look back and see how long it was since the previous entry when this happened?  That just might be interesting to know.  I suspect it is something like 12 hours, but I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it twice on one day, so my log wouldn’t show something like that.
 
Have a GREAT day sir.

Glad I’m not the only one having problems with QRZ.   My issue is I have to log on to QRZ more often than I would like.  I can understand being forced to logon maybe twice a year but more than that is a pain in the a**.  I’ve been keeping track of it and here is my experience in the last two months:
 
QRZ Login
=========
8/06/19 – Twice
8/23/19
9/11/19
9/14/19
9/15/19 – Twice
 
A little much in my opinion.
 
Also I my subscription is paid up unitl 5/31/2020 and I really don’t use QRZ all that much.

Morning Paul.
 
I get the same error.  I am not certain if the computer going to sleep has as much to do with it as the time elapsed since the last QRZ database access.  I get this error early in the morning after sleeping all night, but I sometimes get it after logging the local 80m guys at 5-am, then late in the afternoon making another contact.  It seems if I make several contacts spread through-out the day (like SOTA chasing) that the database is “kept alive” by the periodic use.  The computer often goes to sleep between entries, but the error only appears after a prolonged sleep.  I’ve not bothered to try to time it.
 
What frustrates me more is this.  I have a computer dedicated to logging and digital.  I’ve told that computer to “Remember”
my credentials for QRZ.  But every now and then it forgets something and I have to manually log into QRZ again.  That doesn’t happen real often.  Not even monthly.  But even once is more than I intended.  I use strange passwords, and I don’t trust password management programs, so when it does this I have to look it up every time.
 
I’ll leave you with this.  To err is human….. but to really foul things up takes a computer.
 
Have a SUPER day.

Re: QRZ Error Message

Thank you for your response Scott,

"

Sessions

The QRZ XML server maintains login/logout state information on for each user through the use of a session key. Upon successful login, an encrypted session key is returned to the client application which must be cached so that it can be used with subsequent data requests to the server.

Session keys are unique and are recreated each time a user logs in. A session key is valid for only one user at a time, logging in from a single IP address.

Session keys are temporary in nature and may be valid up to 24 hours. Whenever a user logs in, any previously issued session keys are invalidated. A session key may also be invalidated at any time by the server, so client applications should be prepared to re-login at any time."

These timeout errors are within a 8-10 hour period.

Re: QRZ Error Message

I receive the error message that I've described only when I have ACL open.  I use QRZ lookup service and my reason for posting in this group was because I thought there might be some glitch in the interface provided for client programs ( N3FJP) that connect to the QRZ.COM database.   

I have no issues accessing the QRZ site with a browser.

Has anyone bothered to ask the QRZ folks about this? It could be something they have set up as their security. I have never seen an online account that does not time out after a period of inactivity. Something that clearly has nothing to do with Scott's software is getting a lot of time on here.
