I need help with the settings I can not get Rigcontrol (CAT) or PTT to work.
I have a FT450D, Rigblaster Plug and Play, and windows 10.
For all other programs I have CAT on com7 and PTT (Rigblaster) on Com 5.  I have tried all combinations of settings and comports but can not get CAT or PTT to work.

1- I have noticed the same thing. I think if you click soon enough, it can be a valid transmission however I suspect it will come on not matter what, if you are in the correct 15 segment of the minute. I would not worry about it. I too have noticed it typically takes a number of transmissions to make contact. I think this is because of the human element. When you click on the other station, it is unlikely you did it soon enough to get the first transmission out on time, when he decodes you and responds, it is the same issue. Once connection is established the computer takes over and you sit back and watch the bang-bang-bang series of transmission.

2- Power is a personal thing, there are no rules pertaining to the mode. There is no reason to run QRP. Run whatever is comfortable for you, there is no wrong answer. Running very high power can make it difficult for others because the super strong signal drives down the gain (AGC) for others, but you can protect yourself from that by turning off your own AGC.

3- The program tries to identify the country and to alert you to if you have worked him on that band. I have not noticed the various symbols, most likely because I don't pay too much attention to it.

Been trying FT8 for a while now and posted questions on the 'digitalradio' forum but got no responses, so will try here:  

1) Running FT-8, when I double-click on a station calling CQ, WSJT-X frequently starts transmitting immediately instead of waiting for the next transmit window.  Is this normal?  Is it because there's still enough time left for a possible decode on the receiving side?  I also notice it often takes multiple answers to a CQ to get a response.  I have found the same thing.  This is probably due to the fact that FT-8 only is a 15 second cycle.  So, if you double click toward the end of the CQ-ing station's transmission, your station will appear to start transmitting immediately.  This would also answer the rest of your question, in that if your station doesn't get a chance to get a full return message out, the CQ-ing station wouldn't be able to decode it, hence he/she will send another CQ.

2) How much power are folks running.  I sometimes see a very large difference between sent/received signals, especially from stations working Europe.  A post on the Flex forum said some are running 100's of watts, up to the full 1500W at times!  With my station, I try to keep my output power to 30 watts for domestic (US) stations, but never exceeding 50 watts for DX stations.  Typically, when a station is transmitting using excessive power, it will tend to "desense" a good portion of the window, but there's not much we can do about that, I guess….

3) In the Message section, what is the ~U.S.A. and !Italy etc?  Are these DXCC entities and is there any documentation on the use of "~" and "!"?  I scanned the most User Guide including FT8 and didn't see it  These are DXCC entities, but I'm not sure what the other characters represent.

locked Issues with later Yaesu rigs and FLDIGI native support

Steve [VK3SIR]
 

Hi,

 

A number of issues have arisen with the later model Yaesu rigs (namely FT991/991A and FT891) and software – a direct result of Yaesu NOT implementing some basic functions and changing some of the CAT return codes.

 

Fldigi is NOT natively communicating with these radios… and comms is having to be achieved through FLRIG (that does appear to work perfectly).

 

Michael Black of the Hamlib development team has been working heavily on resolving matters from the Hamlib library perspective – primarily through wsjtx and jtdx.

 

Can this please be looked at? Attached are ALPHA versions of the main changes in the Hamlib code – Again I stress that these changes are VERY Alpha ... but after extensive testing they appear to functional with most software and across Yaesu models at this stage. The attachments reside in the Hamlib “yaesu” source directory. Hamlib must be rebuilt and any links to old static libraries etc. removed.


I have another request – but I will put this in a separate email.

Hi Jim, I need more information, please check the documentation fully and ensure you have the setup correct.

If you have been using JTAlertX ADIF file logging up until installing QSO Relay I gather you have been importing these records into HRD Logbook, are the 9000 records in your HRD Logbook? Sounds like you may be pointing to an empty HRD Logbook.

Please read the section on Session Tracing and Reporting Issues

Repeat the process and then send the log files.

When sending the log files also include the setting.config file.

Bruce,

I installed QSO Relay 1.3 for the first time this morning and it deleted my existing JTAlert ADIF file of over 9,000 QSOs!
Glad I had made a backup of the ADIF file before starting.

I am now using  QSO Relay and it works awesome with my HRD  6.xx  program and logs  JT Alert  to HRD.    It is free and easy to set up.    I respect  Laurie's decision to not support HRD and as Mike mentioned he detailed why a long time ago and its case closed.   Hope you can give this program a try  Eddy.

Date: Thursday, May 4, 2017, 5:58 PM

Since support for Ham Radio
Deluxe (HRD) Logbook v6.x is no longer be available from
JTAlertX version 2.9.x., a group of amateurs who wanted to
maintain this link between the latest versions of JTAlertX
and HRD, decided to develop an application to achieve this
end. The software was designed and developed by Chris VK2BYI
who some of you may know, developed and designed FTRestore
for managing menus and memories for the FT-991, FT991A,
FTdx1200 and FTdx3000 radios. JTAlertX adds
significant functionality with audio and visual alerts for
WSJT-X (and JT65-HF etc) and now with QSO Relay we are able
to keep using the latest JTAlertX application (2.9+) in
conjunction with the latest Ham Radio Deluxe software
(6.4+).
QSO Relay is a Windows desktop application that runs
as a System Tray application that listens for contacts being
forwarded from WSJT-X and JTAlertX via the User Datagram
Protocol (UDP). As datagrams are received, they are logged
locally in a SQLite database and then relayed via
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to a Ham Radio Deluxe
Logbook v6.x database.
QSO Relay was developed as a proxy application that
interacts with JTAlertX the same way as one of the alternate
logging applications supported by JTAlertX – Log4OM. This
allows JTAlertX to verify that that QSO has been logged by
querying the SQLite database, before the contact is relayed
to the HRD Logbook database.
As confirmations of contacts are subsequently
received from various sources such as LoTW, eQSL.cc and QSL
Cards, the corresponding rows in the HRD Logbook database
are updated. QSO Relay has a feature whereby contact
confirmations in the HRD Logbook database can be made to the
QSO relay database as well. This synchronisation process is
requested by selecting a QSO Relay menu item.
This in turn should be followed by a ‘Scan Log and
Update…’ in JTAlertX to update its Wanted Alert
requirements.
Features
Runs as a minimised application with an icon in
the System Tray.Works with HRD Logbook v6.x with
full support for logbooks hosted on the following database
platforms:Microsoft Access (Standard Jet
Database *.mdb files);Microsoft SQL
Server;Oracle MySQL
Server.Synchronisation between the HRD Logbook
database and the QSO Relay database can be triggered when
desired to ensure updates are replicated back to QSO
Relay.

R Gape <robin@...>
 

Roger,

you haven't told us:

* what rig you're using

* why you would wish to operate both WSJT-X and Fldigi at the same time

* how CAT or CI/V control is intended to be mediated between these two programs (is a rig control dæmon in use, or is it pot luck?)

* whether you're using JACK or not

* presuming that you are using pulseaudio, whether or not you've set up additional audio devices

* what computing hardware is in use

That said, you might have more joy with the WSJT-X Ubuntu PPA, which is to be found at https://launchpad.net/~ki7mt/+archive/ubuntu/wsjtx.

There is also an Fldigi PPA at https://launchpad.net/~kamalmostafa/+archive/ubuntu/fldigi, which may help, but if nothing else provides the most up-to-date Fldigi, bar code checkout and local compilation.

AFAIK, neither program is designed to be used alongside a competing program consuming/producing the same audio and rig control interfaces. JACK is designed to work as an audio patch panel, and may be the solution to running two audio consumer/producer programs at once, as far as the audio side of things is concerned.

The rigctld dæmon from hamlib (in package libhamlib-utils) might be helpful, since both Fldigi and WSJT-X can use Hamlib NET rigctl to control a rig. However, hamlib does not appear to be designed to mediate between two (independent) controlling entities.

YMMV, there's some reading to be done, no-one ever said it would be easy &c. &c.,

Good luck,

Robin, G8DQX

Hi Jim,

Besides the audio CODEC, there should also be two virtual COM ports assigned to your radio. One is for CAT control, the other for PTT and CW signalling. These two COM ports should refer to a SiLabs chipset. Does CAT control work? If it does, the PTT will listen to the next or previous COM port, most likely the DTR signal but may also be the RTS.

Eddy, W6EDY

   Trying to get the FTDX-3000 to send.
 I can get the sound cart to receive
 but can't get it to send. It shows that I have the USB Audio
 CODEC but
 only the send works. I have installed the right driver for
 the radio but
 no go. I am running WSJT-X on a Mac computer so I need help
 with the mac
 setup. Thanks for all the help getting me this far but I
 still need a
 little help. Thanks for any help or advice.

One thing to check would be in your sound settings on your Mac, make sure the same Audio codec is selected for your speakers. The mic will be the audio coming in to the Mac for Rx the speaker will be for the audio going to the rig for Rx. They are 2 separate things.
