Guys forgive me if my question is a combination of programs ! I use wsjtx with JT Alert and N3FJP for logging and everything is automated. I make the contact and it logs !!! I am going to operate my (first) Field Day on WSJTX, using our club call sign and have no clue on how to do a proper operation. It is my understanding I have to manually log every contact and the automated process will not work. I would just like to ask if someone has operated FD and give me your suggestion using WSJTX.. Thanks in advance for your help.

My recommendations are as follows:
1. I don’t use automatic logging. I found it missed some QSOs, and didn’t
provide enough operator feedback to ensure all the QSOs were logged.
2. That means the Log Prompt Window will pop up for every QSO, which is
fine. When it pops up, always click on “OK” if you want to log the QSO.
Don’t use the ENTER key.
3. There is an option on one of the setup screens to clear the DXCall and
grid box when you log the QSO. I would check that box.
Sequence would then be:
Rx an RR73
Log Prompt Window opens
Click on OK if you want to log QSO
DXCall box should be empty when Q is logged
Have fun at FD! I’m traveling, so this will be the first FD I’ve missed in
many a year.

You can set up WSJT-X for field day operation.
On the WSJT-X main window...
Select FILE, then SETTINGS
Go to the "Advanced tab"...
Select the check box for "Special Operating Activity"
Select "ARRL Field Day"
In the "FD Exch: box enter your exchange: ie 1D SNJ (station class and ARRL section)
You're all set.
