locked Re: Which file WSJTX read to color the CQ? #adiFiles


The colour codes are not in the adif file, they are in the configuration file. The only thing the adif file does is tell the program which callsigns you have worked on which bands and modes.

To be absolutely sure that changes you make are recognized by the program, you should not edit, delete or change the adif file while the wsjt-x program is running. Close wsjt-x, make whatever changes you want to the file, save the file, then open wsjt-x.

The colours are configured in the Settings window under the Colours tab. Note that which colour is used depends not only on which items in this list are checked, but also on the order in which they appear in the list. If the "CQ in message" (green) line is above the "New call" (cyan) line in the list in the Settings window, then the CQ colour (green) will be displayed on CQ messages from new calls.

Yes Kari, I'm sure. v2.5.4
I opened the wsjtx_log.adi file with notepad++ and tried to find the
callsign: nothing found.
Now I find the qso I had this afternoon with him. And his CQ is green, as
I renamed wsjtx_log.adi in .back, and WSJTX does not create a new one
(maybe it would be done after a qso). But I rescanned the adi file and the
color is still green.
I suspect that the colors are not depending on wsjtx_log, but on some other
log, is it possible?

Hi Pietro,

I've cleaned wsjtx_log.adi, and I checked that a call (UA6ATG) is not
present, but his CQ line is green.

In my color setup new call is checked (both first in band and first one
whith light blue).
I expect the new call CQ is blue, but it isn't and is not the first
callsign I suspect I lost...
PS: I had re-scanned the adi file in setup color tab...
How did you do this cleanup job? What editor did you use?

Are yuo sure that you saved the cleaned-up file back as "wsjtx_log.adi"
and not something like "wsjtx_log.adi.TXT" ( assuming you are using
Window$ie ) ?
