Adding CQ-Zone to Cluster window

Dave
 

How do I add a CQ-Zone column to the LARGE cluster window? I want to see what zone a DX station is in when spotted. If it's already there and hidden how do I retrieve it?
Thanks,
Dave

Jim,

Thanks for the note about clicking on the TIME label to reset time.

I did not know about that one,  COOL.


As to offline, it looks like ACL related to me----I'm learning stuff.

Re: Operator

Jim Shorney
 

You can export the QSOs in question to an ADIF file, use ADIF Master to bulk fill the OPERATOR field with your call, and then re-import after deleting the incorrect records. Per ADIF spec, OPERATOR should always be your operator callsign, not name or initials. If you are thinking of another field please be more specific.

And always back up your files before you make any mafor edits!

I don't know, I don't use spotting inside of ACL. Normally the time is set to current time when you tab away from the CALL box, but at any time you can click on the title bar of the TIME box and it will set to current time.

Hi Jim and tnx agn for all ur help . I understand , most of the time a few mins one way or the other no big deal ... Last night at my sun set 00:08Z I started calling 5H4WZ on 160m CW . With QSB I finally logged him at 02:10 . Whoo Hoo a new one . I did an edit and set the time to 02:10

I guess the way ACL knows when I start calling is from the Telnet Spots and me being on that Freq ? I'll turn Telnet Spots off and see what that does

Make the name correction. Upload a new log and overwrite the current one. Maybe it’ll work?

I am a user of HRD logging software and also use the HRD Digital DM780  and this is for my personal shack. Now I also have started a club within the last year. Most of our members were familiar with the N3FJP software and we use it for our contesting and we all LOVE it!  I am one of the members that work the digital mode in contesting and I use what I know which is the HRD DM780 for psk31  now I made it through Field Day last year by logging it on paper and also letting it log to HRD and then manually logged into the N3FJP software it was a real pain to keep it all current as I have a buddy that is also doing digital with me on a different band during the contest so we have to stay on top of things to keep from having dups. I do see the info on the N3FJP that is posted showing the bridging from other digital modes into the N3FJP software. And I do see the info for HRD as well,   But before I go through that I am asking for your thoughts on to what program you feel works the best with less issues and the easiest to work. I am getting things ready for the upcoming NC QSO party and just would like your input. Thanks David, KC4SOT

Re: Dupes when uploading to LoTw

FWIW I never log a Time Off unless it is an extended QSO or some digi mode software logs it for me. For contest style and DXpedition contacts Time On logged at the time of contact has always been good enough.

Re: Dupes when uploading to LoTw

Jim Shorney
 

Ed,

The first one you do after an upload should be "Download All Since". This will ensure all your freshly uploaded records get flagged as sent and will prevent dupe errors the next time you upload. If you don't get anything back at first, wait a while and try again until you succeed. After a major contest weekend it can take several hours for LoTW to catch up. "Confirmed Since" will collect any new confirmations that have come in since your last check and flag those records accordingly. You can do this at any time. Say no if ever ACL politely asks if you want to add missing records that it finds; there shouldn't be any and a record that you correct an error in and re-upload will trigger this. You can always examine the data after the download to see what it was. I also periodically roll my "Confirmed Since" date back a few months to catch any stray confirmations that hit LoTW when the streams crossed. If you aren't using ACL to track awards you may not even want to worry about confirmations, but I would keep it synced up anyway. I use the DXLab tools in parallel with ACL but find DXKeeper to be way too busy for realtime logging.

Hello Scott, Jim and Frank. After a good nights sleep I'm looking at this differently after reading all messages . Frank , I like both ACL and N1MM . they both do things the other wont .
Jim , thanks for pointing out the different times.
Since I'm doing SO2R I'll stay with N1MM because I like the smaller brake out windows and the way it networks . With that said , I like and will use ACL for the way it works with JTAlert telling me whats worked , confirmed and needed .
Here's my plan , I'm going to stop JTalert from logging to ACL . In fact I'm not going to execute ACL until I'm ready to upload QSO's to LoTW . I will have only one ACL on one computer ! When I'm ready to upload , I'll export ADIF file by date in N1MM  . Now using ACL , I'll import the ADIF to ACL and upload to lotw  using the tap (all contacts not uploaded) Check in LoTW that QSO have been uploaded , then I'm not sure ? do I download (confirmed Since) or (All Since) ?

I will test this with a small number of contacts , Please let me know how I should do the Downloading . Also please let me know if you see any problems with my new plan .
Scott and Jim , I really  appreciate y,all taking ur time helping me sort this trough , if my plan work this will simplify things

Thanks Ed N5DG

Thanks for your reply. I also had and still have that configured accordingly . I also have Signal reports to Comments tutted off in WSJT-X. It’s picking up Country, State, and Grid, just nothing else.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your follow up.  Those are the only AC Log related settings.  If it is still not working, something external to AC Log is preventing your connection to QRZ.  Make sure your Internet protection software isn't clamping down on AC Log.

Hi Scott,

Just wanted to say that your WPX software worked flawlessly....top grade stuff. I used it in con junction with HRD. Smooth as a baby's bum  :)

Also, you must be banging your head against the wall re: FT4/FT8 and folks not studying how LoTW works and experiment several times to solve the numerous LoTW questions that keep popping up.

Design something for easy and simple but some people want more of what your software doesn't support in the first place  (but suggestions are always good)

Many thanks again
