John,

 

Your Step 3 should be set to “internal”.

Your Step 4 should be #23 HamQTH lookup.

 

I use HamQTH, by the way

Subject: [hamlogger] Getting Internet Callsign Lookup to work

 


I'm trying to learn how to use Logger32 (Version 4.0.247) and hamqth.  I'm trying to setup Logger to get name, addres, etc. info from hamqth.  I've listened to a couple of youtube videos, use Loggers "Help system", and googled how to set up logger to link to hamqth, but can't get it to work.

I've read the part that says, " http://hamqth.com/adif.php?u=XXX&p=YYY&callsign=CALLSIGN&prg=LOGGER32 ", but the directions are a little on the poor side, or I'm pretty dumb. So here's what I've done:

1. I start out by going to the "Setup" pull down from the main menu., 
2. I select the "Auto lookup" pull down,
3. There are several options,  which no one really addresses.  Should I be selecting a. Auto Internet Callsign Lookup (external) or b. Auto Internet Callsign Lookup (internal)?  I selected "external" since I wanted to go outside logger to hamqth.com
4. Then I select icon #22 Internet Callsign Lookup. and the window opens:
5. I select the "Transfer" pulldown and select "Fields to transfer on Click"
6. Next select "Transfer selected fields on autolookup"
7. Next select the "Toolbox" pulldown and select "Setup external module to use"
8. A new window opens "Setup Internet Callsign Lookup" which has 2 columns:
     a. THis window opens with QRZ filled in, in the first row and it's button selected.
     b. I got to the 2nd row and enter:
         i. "Lookup from caption" in which I enter "Ham QTH"
        ii. "External program name" in which I enter:
               " http://HamQTH.com/adif.php?u=WA4OHZ&p=mypassword&callsign=Callsign "
     c. Click on the button for this "new" selection
     d. Click "Start" to exit that window

I think I've got it set up.  So I go to the log page input window and enter a callsign, ie: w5urx and hit "Enter"
The callsign is entered in the loogbook page, but the "Internet Callsign Lookup" window (Ham QTH) doesn't appear.

Using the icon #22 "Internet Callsign Lookup", it makes NO difference if I use the internal or external callsign auto lookup in the "Setup" and "Auto Lookup section.

Q1. What did I do wrong?

If I select icon #22 Internet Callsign Lookup, the "Internet Callsign Lookup" window (Ham QTH) will open, with an input box for Call:

Q2. Do I have to put the call sign in again?

It doesn't make any sense that I should have to put the callsign in again.  Why doesn't it take the call from the log page input window?

When I put the callsign in the input bar at "Call:" and hit enter, I get the error window:

Error #53 File not found

Third party module
' http://HamQTH.com/adif.php?u=WA4OHZ&p=mypassword&callsign=Callsign ' not found

So I select the "OK" button and that error message goes away.

Q3. What is wrong with the line in the error message?  It appears the "Callsign" is not being transfered from the "Call:" input box to this string that is trying to be executed.

If I take that line and put it in the URL text box of a browser window, and change the =Callsign to =W5URX, it returns the data to the browser.

Q4. What am I doing wrong?

After hours of working on this problem, I just found the section (11.1.1) in the help manual about this.  It states, "11.1.1Internal online lookup functionBy  default,  Logger32s  built-in  (internal)  Auto  lookup  function  works  with  the  HamQTH.com callsign database".  Great!!! that's what I want.

In this section, there is a picture that shows icon "#23 HamQTH".  Mine didn't say that, it said something a AFID or something like that.  I opend that and was able to change the title of that window to "HamQTH", but the caption
for Icon #22 Internet Callsign Lookup doesn't seem to be able to be changed.  As a novice with this program, the
fact that that ICON says "Internet Callsign Lookup", it would appear to be what I need to do the call sign lookup.

Anyway, I set up icon #23 and enter "WA4KAN" in the "Logbook entry window".  Still no window for HamQTH popping up.

The help manual says, "Auto-lookup  opens automatically if  you  enter  a callsign  into  the  Call field  of  the log  entry  pane, then <Tab>to or click another field, or if you click a QSO in your logbook."

I try pressing the <Tab> after I enter the call in the "Logbook entry window".  Nothing happens.  However, if I don't have a call sign in the "Logbook entry window" and then select icon #23 which I've made say "HamQTH" it will open and populate the information about the call sign from hamqth.com.  So some success.

So I have my screen now configured with the "Logbook entry window" in the upper left corner, the "Previous QSOs" in the middle of the upper set of windows, the "HamQTH" window on the right side, and the "Logbook page" across the bottom of the window.  Exit the program and hopefully it saves my setup.  I go back into Logger32 and the "HamQTH" window isn't there?

Q5. Why not?  Why do I have to select the icon #23 HamQTH icon on the menu bar, everytime I put in a new call sign?

One final item. 
a. I start out opening logger32, and the HamQTH window isn't opened but it's icon (icon #23) on the menu bar is light.
b. I can enter a call sign in the "Call" box of the "Logbook entry window".  Icon #23 is still lit, so I click on it and the HamQTH window opens and is full of data for that callsign.  Go back to the "Logbook entry window" and press "Enter" and it writes an entry into the "Logbook page".
c. I fill in a new callsign back in the "Logbook entry window" and press <Tab>.  The icon #23 gets grayed out and I can't select it, nor did the "HamQTH" window open.

Q6. Why?  This doesn't make any sense.  The Help manual said that after I enter a callsign and press the <Tab> key the HamQTH window should open and display the data.  The only way I can't get icon #23 to light up, and allow me to select it, is to delete the call sign or press "Enter" and create a logbook entry.

Q7. How do I get the data from the HamQTH page to either populate the "Logbook entry window" or the "Logbook page" entry?  I'd like to have the name, and qth automatically fill the "Logbook entry window" and the "Logbook page".
I have selected in the "Transfer" pull down on the icom #23 "HamQTH" window and selected "Transfer first name" and QTH.


I'm slowly getting things to work, but boy what a learning curve.  I almost think I'd rather stick with a paper log book.

Thank you Bob!
4.0.253 is again fast to startup (like version 4.0.251) and also more fast when shutdown (seems backup is more fast).
Until now no errors during using it and during closure.
CW Skimmer also works OK!

Many thanks.

Good question Tom!
The User Manual wasn’t very clear on configurations so I've updated that bit.  At present, the updated info is still tacked-on to the contesting chapter, but I've added "and configurations" to the chapter title to make it a little less obscure.  There's not really enough content to justify a separate chapter, in my opinion.
By all means check out the latest draft of the manual including the FAQs at the end of chapter 28 <https://www.g4ifb.com/Logger32_v4_User_Manual_DRAFT.pdf#page=489> ... or hold on just a teeny bit longer for it to be finalised and published with the next Logger32 autoupdate.
What I did was just make another folder named "Logger32 Beacons" and installed an instance of Logger32 in it. I then made a shortcut for the exe file and named it "Logger32 beacon log," ran the program, and configured it how I want it for beacon logging. Closed it down and then ran my regular amateur radio log to make sure changing the configuration didn't change it. Everything seems to work fine by having two different instances of the program and running them separately. Kind of awkward and inelegant, but it works.

I see that the problem occurs only on some lines (qso's) that have been (automatically via udp) entered without band (30m) but with correct frequency (10137.43). Maybe the fault is in my bandmap file. 73


database error?

Panos <sv1grn@...>
 

Hi, last version here and today: 1. qso's logged ok from WSJT-X 2. when I try to insert the sfi or tx pwr number I am getting the following error any idea? Thanks 73


Re: Different displays for different logbooks?

Gary Hinson <Gary@...>
 

Good question Tom! 

 

The User Manual wasn’t very clear on configurations so I've updated that bit.  At present, the updated info is still tacked-on to the contesting chapter, but I've added "and configurations" to the chapter title to make it a little less obscure.  There's not really enough content to justify a separate chapter, in my opinion.

 

By all means check out the latest draft of the manual including the FAQs at the end of chapter 28 ... or hold on just a teeny bit longer for it to be finalised and published with the next Logger32 autoupdate.

 

Comments on the Manual … and still more improvement suggestions … are very welcome.  What should we tackle next?

Tom, short answer, no you can't do that. However, you can setup two different Logger32 configurations - One with your default preferences, and a second you 'beacon listening' configuration. You then have two different desktop icons (still only one Logger32.exe, but two Logger32.INIs). You would need to stop you current Logger32, and click on the other desktop icon (probably no more mouse clicks than switching logbooks). to change. I'm sure someone on here can point you to the relevant section of the help destructions tp get you started. As a teaser, click the Help menu. See where it says 'Configuration - Default'?  Pursue this line of thought, and that could say ' Configuration - Beacon log' (or whatever. SeventyThree(s).

Re: Radio Control Panels problem.

I forgot to mention that my Radio 2 serial port setup has the IC-7300 as the selected radio rather than the generic Icom option.

Re: Radio Control Panels problem.

John K5QX
 

My IC-7300 does work correctly when it is the primary radio, I copied off the debug log for both the 7300 and the 1000D and added some comments. Red is the radio response and blue is comments within the debug window.

IC-7300 is primary

Poll main VFO : FE FE 94 E0 25 00 FD

VFO poll Rx : FE FE E0 94 25 00 00 50 00 14 00 FD

Poll sub VFO : FE FE 94 E0 25 01 FD

VFO poll Rx : FE FE E0 94 25 01 00 70 00 14 00 FD

Poll main mode : FE FE 94 E0 26 00 FD

Mode poll Rx : FE FE E0 94 26 00 03 00 01 FD

Poll sub mode : FE FE 94 E0 26 01 FD

Mode poll Rx : FE FE E0 94 26 01 03 00 01 FD

Poll Split : FE FE 94 E0 0F FD

Split Rx : FE FE E0 94 0F 01 FD

Poll main VFO : FE FE 94 E0 25 00 FD

Radios are toggled here so IC-7300 is secondary

The poll request has switched from a 0x25 to a 0x03 command

Poll Freq : FE FE 94 E0 03 FD

The IC-7300 returns VFO A frequency but it is not displayed in the SO2R RCP

Legacy Rx :  FE FE E0 94 03 00 50 00 14 00 FD

Split off detected : SO2R

The IC-7300 does not respond to the 0x04 “Operating Mode” request. I can send this command in my terminal program and the IC-7300 does respond

Poll Mode : FE FE 94 E0 04 FD

The IC-7300 responds to the split poll request with “Split On” but the status in the debug shows “Split off detected”

Poll Split : FE FE 94 E0 0F FD

Split Rx : FE FE E0 94 0F 01 FD

Split off detected : SO2R

 

 

FT1000D is secondary

Only the secondary radio’s VFO A is polled (0x10 0x02)

Poll : 00 00 00 02 10

RX : 0C 0A B0 35 00 00 00 02 03 01 03 03 00 00 00 FF

Poll : 00 00 00 02 10

RX : 0C 0A B0 35 00 00 00 02 03 01 03 03 00 00 00 FF

Poll : 00 00 00 02 10

Radios are toggled here so FT1000D is primary

QSY Marker Set : Cleared

Short Poll : 00 00 00 00 FA

Status flags : 09 20 40 10 00

Split on detected : SO2R

As the primary radio, both FT1000D VFOs are polled (0x10 0x03)

Poll : 00 00 00 03 10

Switched radios : FT-1000D now selected.

RX : 0C 0A B0 35 00 00 00 02 03 01 03 03 00 00 00 FF 0C 0A B0 FD 00 00 00 02 00 01 03 03 00 00 00 FF

Short Poll : 00 00 00 00 FA

Status flags : 09 20 40 10 00

Split on detected : SO2R



Thanks,

Tom

It is easy for you to setup different layout if you crate another Logger32 shortcut for Beacon.
Details are explained in Help.
