View Full Version : ADIF Prop_Mode
02-01-2005, 08:41 PM
I'm trying to set up a logging program. I'm trying to find a specification for LoTW when uploading. I'd like to upload a QSO via NO-44 I had today. If I upload SAT, I get an error, if I upload NO-44 I get an error. Does anyone know the correct data to enter in to the Prop_Mode field or where I might find a list that will work with the LoTW? I looked at the LoTW site but information is slim to none.

Take a look at the TQSL program - if you use it to manually create an adif file, it has a pull down menu for prop mode, and one of the choices is "satellite". #It has another field named satellite to input the satellite name.
Not sure what logging program you're trying to setup, so I can't help there, but I know that both the prop_mode and sat_name field have to match for LoTW to count it.

N3FJP's Amateur COntact Log, 2.7. Thanks for the reply, it's helping to point me in the right direction. I just worked another pass on NO-44 copied 16 stations, worked 3 of them.
EDIT: Guess I can't take a look since it's not free :P I hope you can figure it out
Do what W5MEJ suggested with TQSL until you can figure out the logging program.

It's free to try for 45 days.

I just found the right page. I should go back to sleep http://www.qrz.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif

I've been having one of those days myself for the last 38 years.
Well, for starters you can try setting the band to other and enter satellite as the mode. #I'm trying to find an option for entering the actual satellite name, but it doesn't appear to be possible. #It might just be easier to use TQSL for uploading your QSO's from the satellite.
I'll look a little more though
EDIT: Try this
Select Settings>UTC,QTH,Date Options
Edit the "other" field to say SAT_NAME and then hit done. #This should allow you to enter NO-44 in that field for the correct ADIF format.

OK, I got that but I went with the TQSL's Navy-OSCAR 44 but I keep getting errors. I'll try NO-44 and see what happens.

I use the same log, but I haven't made any satellite contacts since I started using it!
I'm guessing that you could configure one of the optional fields (the ones labeled "other") then get them to export to the adif...but I haven't tried it. #I looked through the users manual and couldn't find a thing about logging the birds, though.
I've heard that Scott is great on support, so you might shoot him an email if all else fails.
Have fun on the satellites!

TQSL actually renames it to NO-44 inside the ADIF.

Got it! Sat_Mode has to be SAT not Satellite. Now, NO-44 works, what's the code for the ISS?

I totally overlooked the SAT_Mode when looking throught he ADIF http://www.qrz.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
No clue about the ISS, it probably doesn't have one because it's not a true satellite

I think you're right, but it really should have a status. It's really no different than working a contactvia NO-44...same propogation conditions, etc. Anyway, thanks for all the help.
ECI: Just curious, what kind of setup are you running to work the satellites?

Icom IC-V8000, Cushcraft 7 element yagi, Signalink SL-1+ soundcard interface, 486 Frankenputer that I created from the dead running UISS and AGW Packet Engine.
I've done it with a Kenwood TR-7800, Rascal Buxcom, and a homebrew J-pole as well.
