Cant log contacts above 23cm

Post by VK2XAX » 06 Mar 2019, 00:21

Hi,

So I went to log a contact on 2.4Ghz last night and LOG4OM complains that it is "Out of Band" and wont log it.
I can log the contact on 23cm and then recall the contact and edit the frequency to 2403.1Mhz and then that does get saved and LOG4OM recognises it as 13cm.

I've also tried inserting contacts for 3.4, 5.6 and 10Ghz and the same thing happens - LOG4OM wont permit it :(

See pic.

regards
Tim

Belay that report!

I just discovered the bandplan_r3.xml file that sets out what's where.

So I've created my own xml file for 2200m through to 2.5mm - yes... we're having 122Ghz QSO's down under :)

It seems to work OK. I've attached it for the edification of others and those in VK/region3 who might also be working outside of the usual 160m-23cm bands.


regards
Tim

Rename the file to bandplan_r3_user.xml to avoid it being overwritten during the next Log4OM update

The subject of bandplans has been covered many times on this forum
