Yes, True CW. I believe it also has the ability to send AFSK mode as well but I have it set up to send true.

Jeff,

 

The program I've used is MRP40. While it doesn't marry with any logging program, it has its own mini log and I understand that it isn't what you asked for in  your initial email but I've dealt with several decoding programs and can tell you... in the worst of conditions, this program is bar none, THE best decoder I have used. It's free to try for 30 days and then you have to purchase. I don't use the log that you can use with it but do split windows and work it that way, making the log entries on ACL.

I believe FLDigi sends and receives CW and interfaces with ACLog.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

overall Font size

Stephen Duncheskie
 

The other day I discovered that one could change the overall font size from normal to large in one process.....by accident. However, I have had to reinstall the software on another computer and unable to locate that option. I do see that one could change the individual section in "appearance" but that was not it.

AC Log 6.6. includes the following enhancements:

- DX Spotted digital mode frequencies can be blocked or enabled independently from CW / SSB.?? Click More Filtering on the DX Spotting set up form to configure.?? If you enable digital, be sure to check the check box to display digital modes.

-??Use Shift (or Ctrl + Shift) + Up / Down, Left / Right arrows to tune your rig's frequency (with rig interface enabled).

- Font??control for bearing, miles, time, etc.?? (click Settings > Appearance > Colors & Fonts).

- Ability to query all digital modes together on the awards form (enter DIG on the Awards form's mode field).

- Added Yaesu - Newer 2 option on the rig interface form's rig list to support Yaesu 991, Yaesu 101 D and Yaesu 101 MP.

- User added DX Spotting telnet sites are saved and available for selection in the drop down list on the DX Spotting set up form.

-??LoTW Download - made state and county data additions optional for countries outside USA (control from the check box on the LoTW set up form).

- Passive Mode Option for FTP Web Upload (Settings > Web Upload Status Settings).


As always, upgrades are free to registered users.?? Please just follow these upgrade steps here:


Lord willing, if I can complete all the upgrades in time, I am planning a global release of all my contest software in early January, which will include all of the non AC Log specific features listed above as well!


More Details on Keyboard Fine Tuning:

I am particularly excited about the new keyboard fine tuning feature.?? It was inspired while using my contest software and it really came in handy in my contest betas during CQ WW SSB and ARRL Sweepstakes CW, so I have gone ahead and added it to AC Log, too.

I have really been enjoying using the various contest software options to quickly jump to the next spotted station including Ctrl + Shift?? + Z, jump to next DX Spot on entry, clicking on a spot, etc., but occasionally the spotted frequency is slightly off, requiring a reach for the VFO.?? I wanted the ability to tune in the station more quickly, without having to reach for the rig, so I've coded the software to do just that!?? Here are the keyboard commands:

SSB:

Ctrl + Right / Left (large jump):?? +-500 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Right / Left (medium jump):?? +-150 Hz
Ctrl + Down / Up (small jump):?? +-50 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Down / Up (tiny jump):?? +-10 Hz


CW / DIG:

Ctrl + Right??/ Left (large jump):?? +-250 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Right??/ Left (medium jump):?? +-80 Hz
Ctrl + Down??/??Up (small jump):?? +-20 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Down??/ Up (tiny jump):?? +-5 Hz


That may seem complicated, but don't get caught up in the actual values.?? I think when you try it and actually tune in stations on the air with your keyboard, it will quickly become intuitive.?? In most cases, I found simply holding Ctrl and using the Up / Down arrow keys was sufficient??to quickly tune in a station that was slightly off from his spotted frequency.?? ??


Pre Contest Checklist Reminder!

With ARRL November Sweepstakes SSB and CQ WW CW coming up, I want to remind everyone to??please take a moment and review this pre contest checklist.?? Most of the contest support questions I receive are from those who haven't.?? I use it myself, every time.

I have edited the table using access. It is easier than the multi steps in the ACLog app. If you are good you could write an update query. If not you can sort it similar to a spreadsheet

DXCC QSL submission with ACL

Bo W4GHV
 

LOts of complicated reading, but I may be successful
If you have a bunch of DX QSL cards to be verified for DXCC you can do it online (sort of)
Log on to ARRL, find the online submission setup
Sort your cards alphabetically by call
Sort your ACL similarly
Scroll down ACL and hit CTRL click to highlight the ones you want to submit
When done export the highlighted ones to an ADIF file.
Use ADIF master program to view/change if needed.
Find the IIMPORT ADIF link on the ARRL page. import the file.
No typing required.
That's as far as I have gone so far.
I think I simply have to print out the record and take it and the QSLs to a hamfest for the ARRL QSL checker to check them off.
And soon I can upgrade my DXCC 150 to 200!! :) Lots of work for a tiny sticker. And fun - thanks to the tools provided by Scott, Dave (fldigi), Tom (Win4Icom), Joe(WSJTX), and more

Amateur Contact Log 6.6 is Now Available!

Scott Davis
 


Hi All,

I'm excited to let you know that...

Amateur Contact Log 6.6 is Now Available!

AC Log 6.6. includes the following enhancements:

- DX Spotted digital mode frequencies can be blocked or enabled independently from CW / SSB.  Click More Filtering on the DX Spotting set up form to configure.  If you enable digital, be sure to check the check box to display digital modes.

- Use Shift (or Ctrl + Shift) + Up / Down, Left / Right arrows to tune your rig's frequency (with rig interface enabled).

- Font control for bearing, miles, time, etc.  (click Settings > Appearance > Colors & Fonts).

- Ability to query all digital modes together on the awards form (enter DIG on the Awards form's mode field).

- Added Yaesu - Newer 2 option on the rig interface form's rig list to support Yaesu 991, Yaesu 101 D and Yaesu 101 MP.

- User added DX Spotting telnet sites are saved and available for selection in the drop down list on the DX Spotting set up form.

LoTW Download - made state and county data additions optional for countries outside USA (control from the check box on the LoTW set up form).

- Passive Mode Option for FTP Web Upload (Settings > Web Upload Status Settings).


As always, upgrades are free to registered users.  Please just follow these upgrade steps here:


Lord willing, if I can complete all the upgrades in time, I am planning a global release of all my contest software in early January, which will include all of the non AC Log specific features listed above as well!


More Details on Keyboard Fine Tuning:

I am particularly excited about the new keyboard fine tuning feature.  It was inspired while using my contest software and it really came in handy in my contest betas during CQ WW SSB and ARRL Sweepstakes CW, so I have gone ahead and added it to AC Log, too.

I have really been enjoying using the various contest software options to quickly jump to the next spotted station including Ctrl + Shift  + Z, jump to next DX Spot on entry, clicking on a spot, etc., but occasionally the spotted frequency is slightly off, requiring a reach for the VFO.  I wanted the ability to tune in the station more quickly, without having to reach for the rig, so I've coded the software to do just that!  Here are the keyboard commands:

SSB:

Ctrl + Right / Left (large jump):  +-500 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Right / Left (medium jump):  +-150 Hz
Ctrl + Down / Up (small jump):  +-50 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Down / Up (tiny jump):  +-10 Hz


CW / DIG:

Ctrl + Right / Left (large jump):  +-250 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Right / Left (medium jump):  +-80 Hz
Ctrl + Down / Up (small jump):  +-20 Hz
Ctrl + Shift + Down / Up (tiny jump):  +-5 Hz


That may seem complicated, but don't get caught up in the actual values.  I think when you try it and actually tune in stations on the air with your keyboard, it will quickly become intuitive.  In most cases, I found simply holding Ctrl and using the Up / Down arrow keys was sufficient to quickly tune in a station that was slightly off from his spotted frequency.   


Pre Contest Checklist Reminder!

With ARRL November Sweepstakes SSB and CQ WW CW coming up, I want to remind everyone to please take a moment and review this pre contest checklist.  Most of the contest support questions I receive are from those who haven't.  I use it myself, every time.

http://www.n3fjp.com/help/contestchecklist.html


And in response to the questions we always receive when we neglect to include the following in our e-mail announcements...

And in response to the often asked question for which Kimberly and I are very grateful...  

"I know your upgrades are free, but I also realize how much time and effort coding these enhancements and new programs take and that your pricing policy doesn't fully reflect that. Can I send you something to show my appreciation for your continued efforts?"   

Yes, thanks so much, your continued support in any amount is very welcome and deeply appreciated! You can use this page:

Hi Rino,

 

You could always start a new log each calendar year, so that you would see the DX alerts in red.  At the end of the year, just merge the current year with your master log by ADIF.

 

Enjoy!

Probably Larry, but I’m using all of them at the present time,  and also it wouldn’t as Handy as dx spotting feature which I use all the time , when there a country that I miss for my dxcc , the red writting is very  Handy . with the dx marathon on my dx spotting page I could see at a glance if there a country or zone available  at the moment. I guess I’m getting spoiled.

Hi Scott, thank for the help with my cq dx marathon, I went to the cq dx marathon like someone told me, sorry I forgot who, there a nice program that will take the ADIF log info from your logging program and create the DX Marathon Score Sheet directly. I have tried it, work great, I can correct mistake if any. So I can use my N3FJP logging and at the end of the year use that little program to get my cq dx marathon sheet filled.

Maybe in the future, just saying, in my head it’s easy,  when I use my dx spotting display there would be  room for 2 small rows, dedicated to cq dx marathon, so I could know with just a look ,what country or zone I have worked, marked with a X for exemple,, or if no x , well I need it .
