I should have added this to my previous message. JTAlert is now up to 2.16.13. You might want to install the new version.

In JTAlert - Settings-Applications-WSJT-X/JTDX-To Top Options, do you have "Enable bring WSJT-X to Top" checked? If so, uncheck it and see if that helps.

Hello,

I don't have a Ubuntu system running presently.

What I would do is in a terminal:

Get all updates:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

apt-cache search libusb-1.0 | less

and observe what packages contain it and install:

apt-get install <package name>

If it doesn't exist you will have to build that from source too. But it is a good idea to let apt pull most of the weight if you can.

I can't remember why you are building from source but is there a bug to be reported? You might be able to get a .deb file from a testing / development  repo. You may have already explored that route.

Hi Amos,
Open your event viewer (type 'event viewer' in the lower left search box) & see what errors, etc have been reported - the logs are time stamped so you can see what was reported when you experienced a crash or hang. It will give the info on what is going on. I had a driver issue on a new Win10 PC that generated 1000's of errors per minute & prevented the PC from working well - turned out to be a microsoft reporting error involving the 'Cortana' & skype apps which MS loads with a new PC whether you want them or not. You can do a search on the error code reported to find help from others on fixing it but beware - scammers & virus peddlers pose as friends to 'Help you fix the error' don't click on a offer to download a fix.

I found that a UNUN helped substantially.  Counterpoise wires and and artificial ground from MFJ might also help. I am using an HP Elite Book laptop.  I was using an after market power supply.  It was not only extremely noisy but it also made my RFI problems worse.  The noise problem went away when I used an HP power supply.  It also helped with the system crashes.

locked Re: TS2000 and signal link problem

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

I have as suggested connected a battery powered speaker and I am
hearing the radio so the TS-2000 is giving some audio via the ACC2
port.
If you are listening at the SPKR/AUX jack, that also confirms the
DIN13 to RJ45 cable and the "plug and play module" are installed
correctly.

You may want to:

1) Increase menu 50C to provide more output to the Signalink
2) Increase the RX control on the front of the Signalink
3) Install JP 2 (behind the RX pot) to increase Signalink sensitivity.

Beyond that any receive issues are likely to in Windows: levels in Windows Sound Control Panel -> Recording, and Windows Privacy ->
Microphone ("Allow Apps to access your microphone") or incorrect
audio settings in WSJTX.

One more really random Windows setting ... if you do not use Cortana,
Alexa, etc. Check PC Settings -> Privacy -> Voice Activation and
set "Allow apps to use voice activation" *OFF*. If one of those
applications is started automatically and listening, it just might
be messing with audio from Signalink (USB Audio CODEC).

Since I can't "put hands on" the system, I've gone about as far as
I can in suggesting where to look.

I answered that question earlier.

From the Signalink Windows 10 Users Manual, there are *THREE* 3.5 mm
sockets. The one between the USB and RJ45 socket is labelled "MONI"
(monitor) and contains *TRANSMIT* audio at approximately 100 mV RMS.
The sockets to the right of the RJ45 jack are AUX and SPKR (AUX is
closest to the RJ45). *BOTH* AUX and SPKR contain receive audio as
they are in parallel with the SPKR terminal on the jumper socket.

The audio level on the SPKR and AUX jacks will be quite low - perhaps
50 to 100 mV at 10K Ohms impedance. You *WILL NOT* hear anything with
a typical 8 or 16 Ohm headset - you will need to use *AMPLIFIED*
speakers to hear reliable audio.

Note: all three jacks are mono (audio only on the tip).

Hi Joe,

Windows was configured so that the default sound devices (in/out) were NOT the signal link.
WSJT-X was configured to use the signallink for Input and output.
The problem was getting the audio into the pc back from the rig through the signallink.
PTT was able to be tripped using either VOX or CAT. The fact that I was able to get the
rig to transmit using VOX tells me that audio was going from the PC through the signallink to the rig.
What was missing was the audio coming back.

If I am not mistaken, and Georgina can correct me if I am wrong, Georgina mentioned in one of her previous replies that she hooked up headphones to the back of the signallink but could not hear any audio either.
If that is the case, then either the rig itself has a technical issue, or the problem resides with either a bad cable of a faulty signallink.

Hello,

This is most helpful and appreciated. I had set the default sounds before FT8 had been attempted. I don't know if an update or something has undone my settings. As I have been leaving it for Sam to set up via team viewer I have not needed speech. Just to read team viewer password then I unload it. It is something I know needs addressing. The laptop is purely for FT8 so I don't use it any other time. While Sam is working on audio I don't want to go messing about with any settings.

My concern is to know where audio from the radio can be found. Especially, as I could get the faulty parts replaced, should that be my problem. So the quicker I can confirm that these new parts are all right the quicker I will get using FT8. I really appreciate you translating the diagrams for me. Please could you tell me what does N / C mean?

Thank you.

Combining responses to two of your posts ....

Having never seen such board markings, I know symbols are used but would a non experienced sighted person be able to describe letters
to me like RX or are they symbols?
According to the picture of the circuit board in the Signalink Win 10
manual (Figure 14, page 11) the pin legends are etched on the top of
the circuit board (1-8, SPK, MIC, PTT, G, G, G) in such a way that a
non-technical sighted person should be able to help you.

I hoped I would know how to check the RJ45 side. could someone tell
me how Tigertronics instruct the jumpers without the module for the
TS 2000?
Tigertonics' web page shows these jumpers for TS-2000:

1 - SPKR (1-16)
2 - MIC (2-15)
3 - PTT (3-14)
4 n/c
5 n/c
6 - G (6-11)
7 - G (7-10)
8 - G (8- 9)

(all jumpers are "straight across")

I do not know (can't find) a schematic for the cable but I would
presume the following:

RJ-45 DIN13
1 3
2 11
3 9
4 n/c
5 n/c
6 4 | Note: RJ-45 6, 7, 8 and DIN13 4, 8, 12 are all ground
7 8 | the specific connections are non specific as long as
8 12 | each ground pin on the RJ-45 is connected to a separate
| ground pin on the DIN13.

Being a screen reader user as soon as I plug the SL USB's cable into
the laptop, my screen reader uses the SL and I cannot get any screen
reader to stop using the SL as it's sound card.
This is an indication that you have not configured Windows 10 as
specified in the Signalink Windows 10 Manual (page 6). You *MUST*
configure Windows 10 so that the "Default Device" for audio playback
is the soundcard in your computer and the "Default Device" for
audio recording is the sound card in your computer *NOT* the Signalnk.

You only configure WSJTX to use Signalink (typically microphone - USB
Audio CODEC) for Input and (typically Speaker - USB Audio CODEC
*BOTH*) for Output. WSJTX -> File -> Settings -> Audio

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

locked Focus Shift in WSJT-X

Dale Martin, KG5U
 

 

I’ve been running WSJT-X (v2.2.2) with JTAlert (v2.15.3) on a windows 10 computer for some time now and it has worked very well.

 

This morning, I have noticed if I have WSJT-X and JTAlert running and am working in another application (Word, Excel, N1MM, viewing a PDF, etc), the WSJT-X/JTAlert pair will grab the focus from whatever app I’m in. I have not noticed this before and find it very intrusive and disruptive.

 

I haven’t made any changes to settings in either WSJT-X or JTAlert.

 

Can someone advise, please?

 

(FYI: WSJT-X/JTAlert grabbed focus 7…no, 8 times—it happened just now--in the course of my typing this note).

 

73 and thanks in advance for any help,

 

Dale, kg5u

Thanks for encouraging me no to go on and  buy even more expansive computer which may have the same problem..

Today I had a little surprise:

I did forget to turn on my HRD logbook and the system did survive for a long time. Later on I did force it to the busy 4x 14.074MHz and it did crash after an hour.

Returned it to the normal 7, 10, 14, 18MHz without HRD and it did not crash since then.

Whenever I need to log a DX, there are few this days, I turn HRD on and off.

This is an early joy but maybe there is a hint in it.

I am not sure it is possible to run SmartSDR on 2 computers connected to 1 Flex 6600.

Bruce -

I know this is a little difficult to follow as Amos seems to be starting multiple threads on this topic, but I run eight instances of WSJT-X and JT Alert with Flex Radio SmartSDR and a couple of utilities running with around 55% peak CPU utilization. He has more than enough system resources to do this as well, as a lot of people (including me) do this with less 'powerful' CPUs, so there's something unique to his system that's preventing this from working. A couple of us have asked questions and posted ideas, but haven't go to the root of the problem - yet.

But simply running multiple instances on a 4GHz i7 isn't the problem.

Amos,  You just answered your own problem.  Get another PC with equal or greater

It is madness to have that much running at the same time, a recipe for disaster.

  1. I did update the BIOS of my computer. JTAlert does continue to crash on heavy loads.
  2. I did reduce the number of instances from 4 to 3. JTAlert does continue to crash on heavy loads.
  3. I did reduce the number of instances from 3  to 2. JTAlert does stop  crashing  on heavy loads.
  4. Does anybody use 4 instances successfully? Using which computer?

do you you have anti virus on the PC?

 

try disabling it for a while,

 

it may need the WSJT-X folders excluding from scanning, it may be locking the files while scanning

Today, I did the following:

  1. Installed a CPU thermometer : https://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ . It is very elaborate but I still do not know how to use all it’s features
  2. Increase the computational capability of my CPU to the top by: Norton Utilities Premium – Ultra Performance. Maximizes system performance by engaging all CPU cores at full clock speed.
  3. Set all the 4 instances of WSJT-X to 14.074Mhz for maximum FT8 input rate. Input rate was greater than 36 decodes per cycle as measured by JTAlert on each instance.
  4. All 4 JTAlert instances did crash after about 2 hours. Maximum temperature did reach 100 Celsius.
  5. This evening at 19:50 I did restart the  4x JTAlert and put all WSJT-X to 7.074MHz. Decode rate is 33-36 per 15 Sec cycle. CPU frequency is 4240Mhz. Max temp is 89 Celcius. One JTALert instance did crash at 20:10 and I did restart it. 20:13 another instant did crash at 91 Celsius. At 22:20 another 2 instances did crash an 91 C.
  6. Here is how the thermometer did look like. I was using the left column. Can anybody explain the other coulmns?

Hello,

Oh I am so sorry, this is the first time I have read this. I didn't even notice that there were 3 of them.

I have as suggested connected a battery powered speaker and I am hearing the radio so the TS-2000 is giving some audio via the ACC2 port.

Thanks,

I did ask what one of the sockets of the 2 should I hear audio from
but haven't seen an answer.

I answered that question earlier.

From the Signalink Windows 10 Users Manual, there are *THREE* 3.5 mm
sockets.  The one between the USB and RJ45 socket is labelled "MONI"
(monitor) and contains *TRANSMIT* audio at approximately 100 mV RMS.
The sockets to the right of the RJ45 jack are AUX and SPKR (AUX is
closest to the RJ45).  *BOTH* AUX and SPKR contain receive audio as
they are in parallel with the SPKR terminal on the jumper socket.

The audio level on the SPKR and AUX jacks will be quite low - perhaps
50 to 100 mV at 10K Ohms impedance.  You *WILL NOT* hear anything with
a typical 8 or 16 Ohm headset - you will need to use *AMPLIFIED*
speakers to hear reliable audio.

Note: all three jacks are mono (audio only on the tip).

Hi Joe,

Windows was configured so that the default sound devices (in/out) were NOT the signal link.
WSJT-X was configured to use the signallink for Input and output.
The problem was getting the audio into the pc back from the rig through the signallink.
PTT was able to be tripped using either VOX or CAT. The fact that I was able to get the
rig to transmit using VOX tells me that audio was going from the PC through the signallink to the rig.
What was missing was the audio coming back.

If I am not mistaken, and Georgina can correct me if I am wrong, Georgina mentioned in one of her previous replies that she hooked up headphones to the back of the signallink but could not hear any audio either.
If that is the case, then either the rig itself has a technical issue, or the problem resides with either a bad cable of a faulty signallink.

Hello,

This is most helpful and appreciated. I had set the default sounds before FT8 had been attempted. I don't know if an update or something has undone  my settings. As I have been leaving it for Sam to set up via team viewer I have not needed speech. Just to read team viewer password then I unload it. It is something I know needs addressing. The laptop is purely for FT8 so I don't use it any other time. While Sam is working on audio I don't want to go messing about with any settings.

My concern is to know where audio from the radio can be found. Especially, as I could get the faulty parts replaced, should that be my problem. So the quicker I can confirm that these new parts are all right the quicker I will get using FT8. I really appreciate you translating the diagrams for me. Please could you tell me what does N / C mean?

Thank you.

I see it is very tactile underneath and might be easier to test. Providing I reverse the order would that be sensible?

Hi Sam,

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Hi Bill,

Initially she the radio settings to none and PTT to VOX.
Was able to key the radio, but  did not have any audio coming back.
I changed the radio to TS2000 and made sure that CAT was working.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

If there is anyone out there that is using the TS2000 with WSJT-X could

The appropriate Audio In/Out are already set in WSJT-X.

We have menus 50b and 50c set to 8 and still no audio out and no

If I switch audio in to the internal mike, WSJT-X does decode via the

Could be a problem with the signallink, which se is sending back to where she purchased it for a check,

Hi Sam,

use VOX. The TS-2000 must be keyed via the ACC socket to pick up audio from the same socket and mute the mic input, let the SignaLink USB do the PTT. This assumes the correct configuration board wiring is set up in the SignaLink USB.

Hi Bill,

PTT is Cat and is working properly.
Initially she the radio settings to none and PTT to VOX.
Was able to key the radio, but did not have any audio coming back.
I changed the radio to TS2000 and made sure that CAT was working.

Baud rate is set to 9600 which I believe is the correct setting for the SignalLink.

OI also tried setting Mode to USB then tried Data/Pkt, no audio.

A friend of mine had his TS2000 working with WSJT-X and signallink so I know that it should work
Unfortunately , he no longer has the TS2000 hooked up so he can't check the settings.

There might be a problem in the cable connection to the TS2000 but there is no way that I can test for that on my end.

HI All,

I am trying to help a blind lady ham in the UK connect her TS2000 to WSJT-X.
I have CAT control working without a problem.

We are running into a problem with the signal link connection.
It seems that there is no audio coming through the signal link.
If there is anyone out there that is using the TS2000 with WSJT-X could
you forward me the all the appropriate menu settings in the TS2000.

The appropriate Audio In/Out are already set in WSJT-X.

We have menus 50b and 50c set to 8 and still no audio out and no
signals on the waterfall

If I switch audio in to the internal mike, WSJT-X does decode via the
audio from the radio speaker so I know that WSJT-X is working properly.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello,

I did ask what one of the sockets of the 2 should I hear audio from but haven't seen an answer. But it occurs to me that these are likely to be mono sockets whereas, my headphones are stereo. So not sure about the validity of that test. I suspect that I would have heard something from just one side of the headset any way.

Oh silly me, I did read N / C meant not connected. I have to read things more than once now-a-days.

Thanks,

Hi Joe,

Windows was configured so that the default sound devices (in/out) were NOT the signal link.
WSJT-X was configured to use the signallink for Input and output.
The problem was getting the audio into the pc back from the rig through the signallink. 
PTT was able to be tripped using either VOX or CAT. The fact that I was able to get the
rig to transmit using VOX tells me that audio was going from the PC through the signallink to the rig.
What was missing was the audio coming back. 

If I am not mistaken, and Georgina can correct me if I am wrong, Georgina mentioned in one of her previous replies that she hooked up headphones to the back of the signallink but could not hear any audio either.
If that is the case, then either the rig itself has a technical issue, or the problem resides with either a bad cable of a faulty signallink.

Hello,

This is most helpful and appreciated. I had set the default sounds before FT8 had been attempted. I don't know if an update or something has undone  my settings. As I have been leaving it for Sam to set up via team viewer I have not needed speech. Just to read team viewer password then I unload it. It is something I know needs addressing. The laptop is purely for FT8 so I don't use it any other time. While Sam is working on audio I don't want to go messing about with any settings.

My concern is to know where audio from the radio can be found. Especially, as I could get the faulty parts replaced, should that be my problem. So the quicker I can confirm that these new parts are all right the quicker I will get using FT8. I really appreciate you translating the diagrams for me. Please could you tell me what does N / C mean?

Thank you.

Combining responses to two of your posts ....

Having never seen such board markings, I know symbols are used but would a non experienced sighted person be able to describe letters
to me like RX or are they symbols?
According to the picture of the circuit board in the Signalink Win 10
manual (Figure 14, page 11) the pin legends are etched on the top of
the circuit board (1-8, SPK, MIC, PTT, G, G, G) in such a way that a
non-technical sighted person should be able to help you.

I hoped I would know how to check the RJ45 side. could someone tell
me how Tigertronics instruct the jumpers without the module for the
TS 2000?
Tigertonics' web page shows these jumpers for TS-2000:

1 - SPKR (1-16)
2 - MIC  (2-15)
3 - PTT  (3-14)
4   n/c
5   n/c
6 - G    (6-11)
7 - G    (7-10)
8 - G    (8- 9)

(all jumpers are "straight across")

I do not know (can't find) a schematic for the cable but I would
presume the following:

 RJ-45  DIN13
   1      3
   2     11
   3      9
   4     n/c
   5     n/c
   6      4   | Note: RJ-45 6, 7, 8 and DIN13 4, 8, 12 are all ground
   7      8   | the specific connections are non specific as long as
   8     12   | each ground pin on the RJ-45 is connected to a separate
              | ground pin on the DIN13.

Being a screen reader user as soon as I plug the SL USB's cable into
the laptop, my screen reader uses the SL and I cannot get any screen
reader to stop using the SL as it's sound card.

This is an indication that you have not configured Windows 10 as
specified in the Signalink Windows 10 Manual (page 6).  You *MUST*
configure Windows 10 so that the "Default Device" for audio playback
is the soundcard in your computer and the "Default Device" for
audio recording is the sound card in your computer *NOT* the Signalnk.

You only configure WSJTX to use Signalink (typically microphone - USB
Audio CODEC) for Input and (typically Speaker - USB Audio CODEC
*BOTH*) for Output.  WSJTX -> File -> Settings -> Audio

I see it is very tactile underneath and might be easier to test. Providing I reverse the order would that be sensible?

Have you checked Windows Privacy settings to confirm that the
microphone is enabled?

PC Settings -> Privacy -> microphone -> "Allow Apps to access
your microphone" and "Allow desktop apps to access your microphone"

Windows 10 will default to blocking the mic unless it is specifically
permitted.

Also make sure the TS-2000 menu is set to: 50C *at least* 5 and the
RX control on the front of Signalink is set to *at least* 12:00.

Hi Mitch,

depending on the manufacturer of the USB chip in your 712 interface, you may need specific drivers installed to see the audio devices it presents, or in the worst case it may not be supported on Macs. Your decoding may be due to indirect pickup from the rig's speaker via the Mac's built in mic. Until you can see the audio devices of the 712 interface in Audio MIDI Settings you will not be able to connect WSJT-W to your rig's for audio via that route.

Dear Bill thank you for your email.

The only option under “Settings->Audio->Output” is Built In Device.

I have read the one page document again and it appears I may have to use a Windows based program other the Mac OS I am currently using.  I do have Parallels and Windows 10 on my iMac and will give it a go.

Though I am confused as the software was decoding.

Thank you very much for your help Bill.  No doubt I will be back again.

Dear Group Members,

Every thing is working OK except when the rig turns off RX there is no TX.  I think the issue lies with the Transmit Audio Source Setting which is greyed out.  It is currently set to "Front/Mic" where I believe it should be set to "Rear/Data".  The Test CAT button lights green and the Test PTT lights up red.  I can hear audio tones coming from some where.  Just that the Rig is not going into TX.  I have another issue with the clock for timing or may not.  I will mention that latter on.

Dear Bill G4WJS I am sorry for not replying sooner.  Thank you for your post.  I have PTSD and shrink into a bubble from time to time.  I appreciate your reply and have been waiting for a 3 metre USB cable and USB to serial adaptor.  All has arrived of today. I am trying to go the next step to control the Orion II into TX.  Almost there.

Kind regards,

Hi Mitch,

the "Settings->Radio->TX Audio Source" selections are only available for rig models that require a different CAT command to Tx with audio from different sources. You rig is not one of those and audio routing is controlled by settings elsewhere. Given that you are using a dedicated USB audio interface provided by the manufacturer I would expect any such settings to be documented in user manuals. As far as WSJT-X is concerned the only settings other than the "Pwr" slider that controls the amount of digital attenuation applied to the Tx audio output stream, the "Settings->Audio->Output" device selections are all that you need to adjust.

Bruce -

I know this is a little difficult to follow as Amos seems to be starting multiple threads on this topic, but I run eight instances of WSJT-X and JT Alert with Flex Radio SmartSDR and a couple of utilities running with around 55% peak CPU utilization. He has more than enough system resources to do this as well, as a lot of people (including me) do this with less 'powerful' CPUs, so there's something unique to his system that's preventing this from working. A couple of us have asked questions and posted ideas, but haven't go to the root of the problem - yet.

But simply running multiple instances on a 4GHz i7 isn't the problem.

Amos,  You just answered your own problem.  Get another PC with equal or greater

It is madness to have that much running at the same time, a recipe for disaster.

  1. I did update the BIOS of my computer. JTAlert does continue to crash on heavy loads.
  2. I did reduce the number of instances from 4 to 3. JTAlert does continue to crash on heavy loads.
  3. I did reduce the number of instances from 3  to 2. JTAlert does stop  crashing  on heavy loads.
  4. Does anybody use 4 instances successfully? Using which computer?

I am using the Norton360 anyi-virus.

Today I did exclude all WSJT-X and JTAlert related folders.

JTAlert does continue to fail on heavy loads.

do you you have anti virus on the PC?

 

try disabling it for a while,

 

it may need the WSJT-X folders excluding from scanning, it may be locking the files while scanning

 

i see this on servers at work

Today, I did the following:

  1. Installed a CPU thermometer : https://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ . It is very elaborate but I still do not know how to use all it’s features
  2. Increase the computational capability of my CPU to the top by: Norton Utilities Premium – Ultra Performance. Maximizes system performance by engaging all CPU cores at full clock speed.
  3. Set all the 4 instances of WSJT-X to 14.074Mhz for maximum FT8 input rate. Input rate was greater than 36 decodes per cycle as measured by JTAlert on each instance.
  4. All 4 JTAlert instances did crash after about 2 hours. Maximum temperature did reach 100 Celsius.
  5. This evening at 19:50 I did restart the  4x JTAlert and put all WSJT-X to 7.074MHz. Decode rate is 33-36 per 15 Sec cycle. CPU frequency is 4240Mhz. Max temp is 89 Celcius. One JTALert instance did crash at 20:10 and I did restart it. 20:13 another instant did crash at 91 Celsius. At 22:20 another 2 instances did crash an 91 C.
  6. Here is how the thermometer did look like. I was using the left column. Can anybody explain the other coulmns?
