VA QSO OOS party issue


Bob TK
 

Whenever I tab from the callsign field to sequence or county, the list of contacts blanks out.  It can easily be restored by clicking All or Last 20, so there is a workaround. (VA out of state)

I've tried two different radios, a TS590SG and an FT-991A,  which use different COM ports, and the problem incurs on both.  I've also tried closing the VA log program, and opening a recently held party, like WI.  The problem does not occur on any previous party log on either radio.

The operation of all other program functions is unaffected - all work properly.  

thanks!  Bob KE8VU

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your e-mail. From the menu options select Settings > List Previous Contacts When Tabbing ... should be unchecked so you can still see all the stations you have worked.

Be well and enjoy!

That was it!  I must have accidentally set that while setting up the rig or the spots.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Jim,

Thanks for your e-mail. You should be using the Virginia State QSO Party (out of state) Log for this contest, not AC Log. AC Log is for general contacts only. To change AC Log's behavior, click Settings > List Matches... and deselect Call.

Be well and enjoy!

Hi......This one may have gotten lost in the midst of emails on other more serious issues. Still looking for the setting “Settings>List Previous Contacts When Tabbing”.
