Congratulations to LONP new members!

 

I want to also offer my CONGRATULATIONS! to all 12 of our new Members of LONP from 2021 and to 
welcome those new to 2022! 
We're 13 days into the new year, and we've got 3 new LONP'r's already!
The chase has begun and it's going to be great year for LONP!
Sitting down in front of your radio, bringing up your software program and clicking on traces...both weak and strong...
takes on a whole new meaning all full of ambitions and goals to pursue.
You YL's and OM's are doing great!
I also want to remind all members that they can get credit for working 070 Club members with membership numbers
higher than "070-2787" by sending those contacts directly to me, per the instructions on our website's Home Page at:
Good luck to all!
73,
Milt.

I'll echo the sentiments of the above posts. I really enjoyed the contest this year. I had a computer crash a few days before the contest but managed to get a new OS installed (MX Linux) as well as software just in time. Good times!

Hi Jerry,
I just want to personally thank you and all the Directors of this outstanding group for providing fun contests and stimulating awards programs.  I’ve only been involved with this group for a little less than a year, but have greatly enjoyed the activity.  Thank you for your service and get well soon.

Fight the fight, keep the faith.  God is still a miracle working God and I’m praying for you and family and for a speedy recovery.  God bless, see you on my screen soon.

Best 73,

Buz,  WA5AMM

You had a nice signal in Southern California. Hope to see you on the waterfall again.

Rick,

If you decide to try FLDIGI do not hesitate to ask for assistance.  We could try a Zoom meeting with some of the more experienced FLDIGI users.

It's been a long time since I've taken part in a contest, but it was fun.  This was my first one from my PA QTH, and I was able to get 39 QSO's on 20 and a single one on 15.  Not bad for an attic dipole and 20W.

Thanks everyone for the info and great suggestions.  This is a great group and I really appreciate the help.  I may need some more as I continue the switch!  I am going to download the next HRD release when it comes since I've already paid for it and it is supposed to fix problems with Alerts.  I'm kind of dubious though.  So on to FLDIGI.  Tnx again.

I had family in town and didn't get but a short time Friday evening late and Saturday morning.  Had such a fun time, it was hard to walk away, but I had to!


Re: Need input on FLDIGI

I do not know the answer, if that's possible.  I use linux and I've yet to find a way to pipe out what's going on in the signal browser to a terminal somewhere, if I have fldigi covered up or in another desktop.  If I knew how to do that, I would probably write a really poorly written script showing CQs or callsigns or whatever.  There has to be an easy way to pull that information, especially about callsigns, if you have PSKReporter enabled in the settings.  If there's a way to do that, then there's a way to check against your log.

(Since some of you guys have mentioned some of the loggers you use, easy way to use a logger on a different machine?  Even if it's just fllog.  Not ready to spend money on a logging program yet.)

Just want to thank all the volunteers who make these contests possible.  This is always my most enjoyable contest. 

This year 80 meters was open for me.  That doesn't happen very often, Thanks to all those on the east coast who stayed up late.  Greatly appreciated.  15 meters also was a surprise.  Made 10 contacts and John KC3FL answered on my first call.  John was also one of a handful that I made contact with on 80, 40, 20 and 15 meters.  Also surprised to contact N1ZZZ  for the first time. Made several new LONP contacts.  Looking forward to another great year.  

Best wishes to all

Re: 070 PSK Fest contest

 

Lee, Good job!
That happened to me back on day 1, trying to load and set up Digi Pan.
Just about the same scenario.
It just wouldn't work for nuttin'. CAT wouldn't work. Comm ports fist fighting 
each other and on and on.
It was a Friday evening. I gave up totally. We went out to eat with some ham
friends on a regular Friday night get together, got home, booted everything,
and thru the magic of both positive & negative encouragement it worked!
Is this a great hobby, or what!

Well...my problem with HRD seems to be resolved.  You see...I live in Texas and we have a saying here...if you don't like it right now, just wait until tomorrow.  It will change.

So here is what I did to fix the problem.  I turned off the computer.  I went to bed.  I got up this morning and turned on the computer and launched HRD.  It worked perfectly all day.

You see, I live in Texas.  Problem solved.

I exactly repeat this experience.  Used Gateway and DXkeeper with fldigi.  Gateway failed, switched to AClog, which always works.  I have not used the alerts on fldigi, but I may soon.

The short answer is not that I know of.  I have been using FLDIGI for four years.  The software is well maintained and constantly being updated.  It was not easy for me to configure but that is just me.  I was using FLDIG with DXKeeper a logging program.  There was a gateway that made this setup work flawlessly.  When I upgraded to Windows 10 the gateway didn't work for me.  I hear it did work for some.  The gateway was going to be rewritten but I couldn't wait so I bought ACLog.  ACLog integrates pretty well with FLDIGI.  It has a watchlist which can be configured to alert you with a pop up window.  I have mine setup to alert me for PODXS members.

I hope that helps.

Re: Need input on FLDIGI

 

Rick,

It is a visual alert not an audio alert.  There is an audio alert for your own call and a few other events.  ACLOG does work well with it however the way it accesses the log in Fldigi it won't let the previous contact alerts in Fldigi to work.  Been using it for about ten years and am very satisfied with it.  There is also a very good user group.
