FYI I also intercept that email address

In the latest version of the WSJT-X the information in the
"Last TX" field (the lowest line of the main program window
on the left,) has disappeared. By default, it is set to Russian,
could this be the reason?

It's been brought to my attention that log submisssions for 2022 are significantly below 2021. The last date for submission is Dec 13 which is about 2 weeks. It seemed to me that activity on 23 cm was significantly above last year. In addition, there was a second weekend for 13 cm +. If you were active in the contest, please submit your logs to the ARRL. If we can get a good bump in entries, maybe we can get some of the contest software writers to add the EME contest to their suite of contest software and make it easier to create the Cabrillo logs the league needs. Thanks.SkipW1PV Sent from my Galaxy Tab® S2
Checking the list of submitted logs, there are only 137 to date. Last year we had 237 total log entries. If you need assistance in sending in the Cabrillo format log, I can assist. PLEASE submit your ARRL EME Contest logs in a timely manner. Logs due: 2359Z Dec 13, but, the sooner the better. Thanks, Rick K1DS
I have been playing with a new Triquint ULNA device (TQP3M9036). It
Shows a lot of promise. It is like a MAR or MSA device in that it is
50ohm in and out. and has a claimed NF about .4db nf ( their numbers).
I have built several pramps to test them and have gotten even better
than they claim and they cover 50-1296 with ease and NF is .4ish or
below. The S11 and S22 are both great and the OIP3 is +35db also
...very nice device. It has great promise as a good terrestrial LNA.
Preamps are foolproof to build and would cost under $50 if all the best
quality parts are used.

I tried *DF3CB's Fast Log Entry *program. It looks like it should be pretty
easy to enter a bunch of contacts.
I read the instructions and examples but there are a few issues. I would
really like to get this going.
mycall does not work. I have it in both the header and the log but it
leaves my call blank or if I load in the sample log first then do a new
file, and I set up with mycall in both places, then it shows that my call
is WB9ZZZ. I wonder if there is now a bug in the program?
jt65 is the only digital mode option and for the ARRL it should be DG. Also
the report is always -10 and nothing I do can edit that. It should be both
OOO. I initially had trouble entering time but after beating on it for a
while and basically repeating what I did earlier it finally entered a time
entry. My trials were the same as in the examples. I have read and re-read
the help file. Anyone have any ideas?
Here are the first three entries of my contest log in case someone is
willing to send me the entries in the proper format:

I worked the strongest signals first and soon discovered that the wind had
blown my array 12 degrees off azimuth. With the array on the roof it was
easy to correct.
