My habit is that most every day, I save the wsjx_log.adi to another name and a new file is created the next time I open WSJT-X.
Therein lies your problem. 

When you rename the wsjtx_log.adi file to something else you're in effect making it disappear as far as the WSJT-X app is concerned so a new file is created when the app next starts up.  The new wsjtx_log.adi file that's created to replace the one that you've renamed will, until the minor bug in WSJT-X is corrected in the next release, always include the incomplete header.

There will be numerous ways for you to avoid this; for example, why don't you leave the wsjtx_log.adi file as it is and just copy each day's entries from that overall log file into whatever you want to call your daily log file?

Also, a side-effect of what you're doing is making it impossible for WSJT-X to identify which stations you've already worked in previous days/weeks/months/years and to highlight their decodes in the appropriate colour.  Because you're creating a new wsjtx_log.adi file each day there's no way for the app to access your QSO 'history' as would be recorded in an enduring log file.  You're presumably seeing almost every decode each day highlighted as a new DXCC, a new callsign, etc etc etc.

GM3ZZA has posted that this is a known bug, end of story.

I don't want a continuously growing wsjtx_log.adi file. I don't want to have to upload files to LoTW, et al., with thousands of QSOs in it for just the few I worked on a particular day. Why would I want to copy just one day's QSOs to upload? That wold be a pain in the ass and subject to mistakes.

I am not seeing almost every decode highlighted as a new DXCC as I don't have hardly any of the color options turned on. JTAlert does just fine in highlighting what I want highlighted.

locked Re: Two Radios To One WSJT-X Program On One Computer

Mark, WD4ELG
 

Hi Steve

It's actually straightforward.

Go to a command prompt and type in the following text:  wsjtx -r <profile_name>

Example: wsjtx -r ts890

This will launch a new instance for your TS-890, which you can set up any way you want.  After closing it, you can restart it with all the same CAT contro, sound card, etc by again typing: wsjtx -r ts890

Then launch one for the 9700 by typing wsjtx -r 9700

I have 12 instances of WSJTX running at one time, controlling my two 7300 and my 9700 and then decoding WSPR on old rigs and RSP1A and a KiwiSDR.  The only easy way to do this using profiles like above.

Hope this helps, ping me offline to discuss further if you want.

I need to buy a Solar Panel, decent, Charger/Regulator for a couple of my 3-foot solar panels.

I have heard some of the guys moan about sunrise when all the yuppies'
roof-mounted panels see first-light each morning .... and then the Amateur radio weak-signal chap must leave the airwaves until Darkness due to excessive regulator-noise.

So what's a tested brand ??

Hello Sam,

So my attempts to prevent Cortana from using the mic might have been the answer.

Actually, I didn't change any menu settings. They were all default. As I had it in mind to use the faster laptop. But as I wanted to test the SL leads I got the setup back together to test the audio. Which was a great relief. So while I was on a winning streak I thought I would look at the windows settings. While I was doing that I heard this Mac chirp up with a message from you. So I just came and read the message and went back to the laptop and closed the settings app and loaded team viewer.

So this old Thinkpad 201X is working well. It only has 4GB of RAM and the processor is nothing really.

I hope you didn't pull too much hair out over my wining.

Many thanks,

Hi G,

I did not change any settings in Windows privacy settings when I last logged on.
It worked from the moment I logged on. I tested the CAT connection with QLog.
Changed bands from 70cm to the HF band for FT8 (40M if memory serves correctly).
Lowered power to 50W from 100W. Brought up WSJT-X, it was decoding and connecting
to QLog without a problem. Invited you to Zoom, because I was not hearing anything 
just seeing things. Looked good.

Hello Sam and All,

I saw the post that mentioned the privacy settings relating to the
microphone. While I had the policy that I would leave well alone while Sam was working on it. I told Sam that I would be getting a better laptop later this week. So I went poking around I saw really strange settings that were granted access to the microphone. 3D objects and games I turn them all off including Cortana. Obviously, I allowed apps to access the microphone as a generic setting. Did that make the change, I don't know. Being a Mac and linux user I find this Windows 10 settings app very strange. I can never visit the same place twice as hard as I try.

Apologies, for such a lengthy thread.

I think I have worked 5 countries so far all local really but fun anyway.

Hi Joe,

Georgina did a full hard reset of the TS2000 and I believe she then reentered the previous menu options.

I did not change anything. When she said she is hearing audio coming out of the speaker port of the SignalLink I just logged in via teamviewer made sure WSJT-X audio config was the same and it started to decode. CAT worked fine. Left PTT as VOX, it was working I was not changing it. as the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

BTW, just as an FYI, while I adapted QLog for blind hams with audio for WSJT-X, I wrote it for myself. It is a full logging program with audio functionality and rig control  for TS590S(g), TS2000, TS480, IC7300, FT817 and FT857. For the TS590S, TS2000 and the IC7300 it has audio capabilities to actually send your callsign, standard CQ message or custom messages either text to speech or prerecorded audio, from a QSO entry screen. On the TS2000, its all CAT control and to send the audio through the signallink, I disable VOX with the "VX0;" command and then put the ST2000 into Xmit with the "TX0" command. works like a charm. 
The TS2000 and IC7300 updates were done for a friend (not blind).  

In any event, thank you for taking the time and putting the effort in for a really good cause.

Stay safe and healthy.

73,    

Sam W2JDB

Well, it looks like I smiled too soon, hihi.  The 2.2.2 is up and running but does not engage with pulse audio on tx. The TX audio out slider on right side of main screen is greyed out. When I key the ttyUSB.. all works with tx function but the pulse pavucontrol doesn't start.

I have had no trouble with Xubuntu 18.04 and WSJTX v2.2.1

Stan, KA1ZE

Hi Kari,

That worked, thanks!

next .....
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5SerialPort"
  with any of the following names:

    Qt5SerialPortConfig.cmake
    qt5serialport-config.cmake
So you are missing more than one package...
Try this somwhat longish command:
"sudo apt install build-essential git cmake gfortran fftw3-dev qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev libqt5serialport5-dev  qtmultimedia5-dev libqt5multimedia5-plugins libqt5sql5-sqlite autoconf automake libtool texinfo libusb-1.0-0-dev libudev-dev"
That should get you everything you need in order to compile WSJT-X.

Ron,

Did you ever get this resolved.  I have the same problem, although I'm using a SignaLink and Yaesu FT-891

Hi G,

I did not change any settings in Windows privacy settings when I last logged on.
It worked from the moment I logged on. I tested the CAT connection with QLog.
Changed bands from 70cm to the HF band for FT8 (40M if memory serves correctly).
Lowered power to 50W from 100W. Brought up WSJT-X, it was decoding and connecting
to QLog without a problem. Invited you to Zoom, because I was not hearing anything 
just seeing things. Looked good.

Hello Sam and All,

I saw the post that mentioned the privacy settings relating to the
microphone. While I had the policy that I would leave well alone while Sam was working on it. I told Sam that I would be getting a better laptop later this week. So I went poking around I saw really strange settings that were granted access to the microphone. 3D objects and games I turn them all off including Cortana. Obviously, I allowed apps to access the microphone as a generic setting. Did that make the change, I don't know. Being a Mac and linux user I find this Windows 10 settings app very strange. I can never visit the same place twice as hard as I try.

Apologies, for such a lengthy thread.

I think I have worked 5 countries so far all local really but fun anyway.

Hi Joe,

Georgina did a full hard reset of the TS2000 and I believe she then reentered the previous menu options.

I did not change anything. When she said she is hearing audio coming out of the speaker port of the SignalLink I just logged in via teamviewer made sure WSJT-X audio config was the same and it started to decode. CAT worked fine. Left PTT as VOX, it was working I was not changing it. as the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

BTW, just as an FYI, while I adapted QLog for blind hams with audio for WSJT-X, I wrote it for myself. It is a full logging program with audio functionality and rig control  for TS590S(g), TS2000, TS480, IC7300, FT817 and FT857. For the TS590S, TS2000 and the IC7300 it has audio capabilities to actually send your callsign, standard CQ message or custom messages either text to speech or prerecorded audio, from a QSO entry screen. On the TS2000, its all CAT control and to send the audio through the signallink, I disable VOX with the "VX0;" command and then put the ST2000 into Xmit with the "TX0" command. works like a charm. 
The TS2000 and IC7300 updates were done for a friend (not blind).  

In any event, thank you for taking the time and putting the effort in for a really good cause.

Stay safe and healthy.

Hello Sam and All,

I saw the post that mentioned the privacy settings relating to the

So I went poking around I saw really strange settings that were granted access to the microphone. 3D objects and games I turn them all off including Cortana. Obviously, I allowed apps to access the microphone as a generic setting. Did that make the change, I don't know. Being a Mac and linux user I find this Windows 10 settings app very strange. I can never visit the same place twice as hard as I try.

locked Two Radios To One WSJT-X Program On One Computer

Steven Rutledge <steven.t.rutledge@...>
 

Did some searching and apparently this can happen by creating a "profile."  However, I'm really not sure how to make that happen.  My goal is to be able to switch between Icom 9700 and TS-890S for FT8 during the VHF contest, using one computer.  Both rigs are connected to the computer via USB cabling.  I could obviously use two computers but would rather not.  Is there anyone out there who has made this happen who might be available for a consult off-line or on-line?

Kind regards and 73,

It also depends on what battery type/chemistry you have.

I really appreciate all the thoughts that have been offered. This has been very frustrating for me as evident by my comments and I apologize for that. 
You have given me a lot to look at and to think about. I was hoping for a simple solution but it looks like I've got my work cut out for me. Now I have to figure out just where to start!

That file contained all the contacts I made in the prior session. When I opened the next session, the eoh had been changed to eh.

My habit is that most every day, I save the wsjx_log.adi to another name and a new file is created the next time I open WSJT-X.
Therein lies your problem. 

When you rename the wsjtx_log.adi file to something else you're in effect making it disappear as far as the WSJT-X app is concerned so a new file is created when the app next starts up.  The new wsjtx_log.adi file that's created to replace the one that you've renamed will, until the minor bug in WSJT-X is corrected in the next release, always include the incomplete header.

There will be numerous ways for you to avoid this; for example, why don't you leave the wsjtx_log.adi file as it is and just copy each day's entries from that overall log file into whatever you want to call your daily log file?

Also, a side-effect of what you're doing is making it impossible for WSJT-X to identify which stations you've already worked in previous days/weeks/months/years and to highlight their decodes in the appropriate colour.  Because you're creating a new wsjtx_log.adi file each day there's no way for the app to access your QSO 'history' as would be recorded in an enduring log file.  You're presumably seeing almost every decode each day highlighted as a new DXCC, a new callsign, etc etc etc.

Sam Birnbaum
 

Hi Joe,

Georgina did a full hard reset of the TS2000 and I believe she then reentered the previous menu options.

I did not change anything. When she said she is hearing audio coming out of the speaker port of the SignalLink I just logged in via teamviewer made sure WSJT-X audio config was the same and it started to decode. CAT worked fine. Left PTT as VOX, it was working I was not changing it. as the saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

BTW, just as an FYI, while I adapted QLog for blind hams with audio for WSJT-X, I wrote it for myself. It is a full logging program with audio functionality and rig control  for TS590S(g), TS2000, TS480, IC7300, FT817 and FT857. For the TS590S, TS2000 and the IC7300 it has audio capabilities to actually send your callsign, standard CQ message or custom messages either text to speech or prerecorded audio, from a QSO entry screen. On the TS2000, its all CAT control and to send the audio through the signallink, I disable VOX with the "VX0;" command and then put the ST2000 into Xmit with the "TX0" command. works like a charm. 
The TS2000 and IC7300 updates were done for a friend (not blind).  

In any event, thank you for taking the time and putting the effort in for a really good cause.

Stay safe and healthy.

73,    

Sam W2JDB

locked Re: CPU overload by 4 Instance WSJT-X and JTAlert causes JTAlert to crash / Update

Jim Bacher - WB8VSU
 

Amos, unless you are using HRD to control your radio, just run the HRD logbook. The logbook will run stand alone. 

Some of this likely has already been mentioned, but this is the order I would follow to solve an issue. 

When I have an issue with Windows (or Linux). First thing I check is how much unused disk space I have. I want to see the unused disk space to be over 10% on all disks.

Next thing I look at is how much memory is in use by using the Task Manager on Windows. If there is a lot of memory in use, then things start swapping to disk and that hurts performance and can cause issues. My system has 8 gigs and 60% of memory is being used. 

When looking at all processes with the Task Manager, you can sort on columns. So next I would sort on cpu % to see what is consuming cpu cycles. Make sure you are looking at all, not just user. 

On my computer WSJT-X has hit as much as 10% cpu cycles (I only have one instance running). Jtalert shows 0% cpu usage. The system itself is mostly under 25%. My system will step the processor speed down if nothing is going on and I suspect that is why the 10% reading on WSJT-X, as most of the time WSJT-X is under 5%.

Then what I do is shut down the computer and then power it off for a few minutes. Then turn it back on. Once it's back up, but before running any apps, I bring up Task Manager, and switch to its graphical display, (the tab called Performance). Then I watch what it's doing idle for a bit. If nothing seems out of order, I then start the apps one at a time and watch what happens.

locked Re: Anyone have this problem on startup? "Error Scanning ADIF Log, invalid ADIF header"

Karl Beckman WA8NVW - NNV5BH
 

John -

I suggest that your ongoing problem Is NOT a software defect in the WSJT package and will disappear when you STOP MANUALLY CHANGING THE FILE NAME every day!  If your station logging habits dictate that you must maintain separate .adi files for every single day of operating your station, copy the existing file first and then change the name of the copied version.  That should keep WSJT from creating a new .adi file with a bad [eh] header when it can't find the one it remembered from yesterday.  Another hint - ALWAYS close any other 'dependent' software apps like JT Alert or Grid Tracker before you use the menu EXIT command to close the WSJT software.  Only then should you power down your rig and/or unplug any soundcards or USB or CAT cables from your computer. 
 
If you are willing to explain what other software apps you are trying to interconnect, and why, I know there are several knowledgeable folks on this group who can suggest alternate methods to achieve your logging goal.  Give them a chance to support you, instead of blaming Joe's software itself, which is widely used and accepted by the worldwide amateur community.

locked Re: High CPU load affects FT8 decode

Williams, G (af8c) <af8c@...>
 

Hi,
Thanks to Bill, G4WJS, for the lead on the Microsoft wmiprvse article.

I couldn't resist writing the following paragraphs.

Some of these problems are related to queueing theory  (  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queueing_theory ) where the servers are the Operating System processes and the customers are the WSJTX processes along with some possible other activities.  It's a bit like a traffic jam on a busy highway:  too many cars and not enough lanes. (OK most of us don't want to really learn all about queueing theory math. )

Removing the wmiprvse.exe process possibly results in lowering the number of customers.  Changing the WSJTX priority  can affect other customers in a bad  way.

You do have to change the queueing theory equation variables however.  So the writeup mentioned using a limited resource PC.  Change that. Get a PC dedicated to only WSJTX with a fast CPU, lots of RAM, an SSD, crapware uninstalled or canceled temporarily with Task Manager, and don't try to open up other processes such as a browser or a cloud app.  Unfortunately anti-malware software might have to be suspended also.   You want WSJTX to run like it's the only set of processes in a real time operating system.

was no decode at the end. (even though I have the priority
for wsjtx.exe set to HIGH, using the Task Manager).

Checking the CPU usage, it was showing over 90% all the

was never more than about 45%.

Doing some 'google research' I found that this is not
an uncommon situation.  The reasons are a bit tecky.
I found a page where the author claims to have solved
the problem --


[don't you love those short URLs? !!]

Following his steps my Event Viewer did not show
anything like the log he was targeting.

Reading some of the tecky stuff about WMI Provider Host,
it warns that if you suspend the task there might be problems with trying to start programs.

Feeling daring, I took the challenge and 'suspended'
WmiPrvSE.exe in Task Manager.  The CPU usage
immediately dropped to around 35% to 45% and the
waterfall stepped smoothly, and decodes displayed just
about every cycle.  None of the open programs seemed to
be affected otherwise.

I don't recommend messing with this fix if
you don't feel comfortable using Task Manager
and the Performance Monitor, but it certainly
made a difference in my FT8/FT4 decoding.

Hi Jim,

a quick Internet search reveals this MS support article:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4483874/high-cpu-usage-by-wmiprvse-exe-process

That tells me the issues is not WmiPrvSE that is the issue, but some other process consuming excessive system handles or memory. The correct solution is to find that process and deal with it rather than disabling an important part of the host operating system.

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.

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

Hello Joe,

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

I much appreciated your description.

According to the original Signalink Manual (before the "modules")
the 16 pin "socket" pins are as followed (numbered according to
convention for a DIP socket)

1 - RJ45 pin 1
2 - RJ45 pin 2
3 - RJ45 pin 3
4 - RJ45 pin 4
5 - RJ45 pin 5
6 - RJ45 pin 6
7 - RJ45 pin 7
8 - RJ45 pin 8
9 - ground (common)
10 - ground (common)
11 - ground (common)
12 - no contact
13 - no contact
14 - PTT
15 - MIC (TX audio)
16 - SPK (RX audio)

With the front of the Signalink to your left, pins 9 - 16 will
be on the left side of the socket (numbered top to bottom). If
you have sighted help the pin functions are identified on the
circuit board.

Note transmit audio level is approximately 100 mV RMS (maximum)
for connection to a Kenwood ACC2 input.

Hello,
Tigertronics do indeed sell a plug n play module which I purchased knowing that I would have problems attaching small bits of wire. I have had 2 sighted people check that it is in the right way around and seated properly.

Sam-

have the jumpers inside the signalink been set up for the TS2000?

You need to do that or you can buy a plug in module for that rig.

This properly routes the audio from and to the radio.

Hi Bill,

Well, tried it all. No audio coming through the signallink.

Could be a problem with the signallink, which se is sending back to where she purchased it for a check,
or worse, they might be a problem with the TS2000 which she purchased used.

Thanks you all for your help in this matter.

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

Hi Sam,
what do you have checked for "Settings->Radio->PTT Method"?

No. However, it would probably be easier to homebrew a cable using
3 x 3.5mm plugs rather than try to build with a mini-DIN6 plug - as
long as one were not interested in FM data.

No. The PKT connector is valid for only VHF DATA (FM Packet, page 17
of the FT-847 Operating Manual). For HF data (USB/LSB) you need to use
the Data In/Out (3.5 mm) connector (AFSK TNC Connections, page 16 of
the FT-847 Operating Manual).
