I believe AC Log can accept a manually input mode, and as well, Scott has recently updated the program to accept FT8. Upgrades are free.

Rich - LoTW accepts FT8 now.  My Mac logging program doesn’t have built-in digital mode identifications for anything beyond RTTY BUT it allows you to type “JT65” or “FT8” which is then sent along to LoTW.  Does AC Log have a box where you can type in text like that to identify the mode?

The program does not have that mode listed in the pull down menu so I typed it in. When I try to upload those contacts, the QSO's come back as suppressed. Is there an update to LOTW or are they still 3 months behind? Should I type FT-8, instead of FT8? Tnx. Rick, WB3CSY
