AC Log interfaces with JT Alert and will automatically insert the correct mode for each contact when WSJT-X and JT Alert are running together.-- Mark D.

 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?

> Maybe someone on this bb can help me. I just tried to put about 20 contacts in LOTW for mode FT8 when on 20 m, HF. I use the program AC LOG. 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
