When operating in the FISTS Sprint this afternoon and using version 6.73, I
noticed that when working a station on one band that I had worked on another
that the QSO information would pop up in the exchange field.
If the FISTS club member's number was 5 digits in length, only the last four
were displayed in the exchange field (they appear as 5-digit numbers in the
5-line log window above)...also, I checked the log after the contest and all
5-digit numbers are intact in the log. It seems it's just how the 5-digit
numbers are displayed in the exchange field.
Also, I noticed that if I type in the RST behind the QSO information
appearing in the exchange field, TRLog won't log it. I have to enter the
RST at the beginning (I didn't try entering it anywhere else...
Exchange field shows info from previous QSO with station:
NJ Bill 0250
If it enter RST after the 0250, TRLog won't log it. If I insert the RST
before the NJ, it takes it.
Here's an interesting tidbit: Since my Radio 2 Omni VI was at Ten-Tec for
service, I planned to use my FT1000MP in its place. I got home about 30
minutes before the contest began and put the cables in place and connected
up the radio. Then, I noticed TRLog was not tracking the radio. Oh yeah! I
forgot to put in the serial (CAT) cable. I found a nice, not-KG5U-rigged
cable and plugged it into the radio. I dropped the other end of the cable
behind the desk and crawled under the desk to connect it to the PC. Dang if
the serial port isn't looking for a female connector. It turns out a
double-ended female DB9 cable is required for the radio to work with the
computer. And all I had were Male-to-Male gender benders!! Oh well...
