Re: Special Event Stations

Michael WA7SKG
 

There are several 'other' categories that can be customized and included in ACLog. I use several of them for the custom entries supporting Parks On The Air (POTA).

Go to Settings > Other Field Titles and Fill Behavior and an "Other Titles" window will open. Select an open "Other" label, give it the desired name, i.e. "Special Event" and chose the fill method. In your case, it will likely be NONE. Click Done when finished.

Next, go to Settings > Edit Fields Displayed ... and adjust the tab order of the boxes as you desire. This controls the order you will jump through the boxes as you tab through them. On each item, check or uncheck as desired the "Visible on Main form" box. At the bottom, click the box to Enable Repositioning of all fields on Main Form. DO NOT CLICK 'DONE' YET! On the Main Form, rearrange the boxes as you desire. Once they are as you like, return to the Edit Fields Displayed window and uncheck the Enable Repositioning... box. Click DONE, and you are.

Now you have your Special Event entry. It will be in your log listing and on any ADIF exports.

HTH,
Michael WA7SKG

Scott, is there a way to add a column to ACLog that lets you see if a log was a special event station? I have worked many special events, but I can't figure out how to make them show up in my list of logged stations. If not, would you consider adding it to your great logging software. Merry Christmas to all!

I’m using HRD for RTTY….then I open my ACLog, followed by the W4ELP free bridging software which automatically uploads to QRZ and LoTW……..Scott’s software is right on the money…..can’t beat

Yes, you can only run one software at a time with N3FJP, and N3FJP must be opened first in both cases.

I use all of those combinations and that is how they have worked together in my case...others may have different processes but again, that's how they work at my QTH with my rig and PC.

My primary goal for this contest is to best my FT8 score from the FT8-RU contest this December.  Traditional RTTY is a means of adding multiplier stations not operating FT8.  Truth be told, I'm new to Fldigi, especially in the contest modes. 

 

Would appreciate hearing from group members with experience operating Fldigi with the RTTY contest module.  Should be fairly straight forward switching between WSJT-X and Fldigi since it's a matter of which app is running at the time?  To be clear, turn off WSJT-X while Flgidi is running, and vice versa, because they use the same API address in the N3FJP RTTY contest module?

HRD works very well for it……been using for a few years for RTTY.   The 5.x versions are free download and the 6.x costs  Either way you won’t go wrong….No lines of garage to try to make out calls, etc. all other RTTY engines have

Thanks to this group, I learned about he VE7CC DX Cluster Windows app and the enhanced filters it provides.  I still prefer the large DX Spots form provided by ACLog for display, and have learned how to connect ACLog to the VE7CC app to achieve the desired filtering.  However, it seems redundant to have both the VE7CC app and ACLog DX Spots window running at the same time.  Experimentation has shown that I can manually issue the appropriate filter commands to the VE7CC cluster from withing the ACLog DX Spotting Settings window.  Some of the filter settings are retained by the cluster, but unfortunately, some have to be repeated each time DX Spotting is started in ACLog.  Is there a way to programmatically send the multiple commands to the VE7CC cluster, ideally when ACLog starts?  The optional login command feature in the DX Spotting Settings window of ACLog seems to be insufficient.

Thanks in advance.

Sirs,

 

I’m just a week or so into this but I can’t find any help in changing colors for the DX spotting on the bottom of the right panel.  It is a light grey background with white letters so not much contrast for me to see.  When I see examples of this panel from Scott I see a blue background with white letters which would be much better.

Yes I had the same problem….they are that way because of your monitor resolution…if you can try to change your resolution and though your icons will appear smaller, your

The other way you can fix this is to go into the edit mode of your qrz page and click on each photo and make them smaller on the page.  These two things I have learned and gone through copuntless times.

 

Hope it helpos and there is no way one time fix without any “fussing”…
