I was trying to use my Multus Proficio SDR for the rig. It had been working well with 2.1
I switched to my IC-7300(always trying to think of another way to trouble shoot) and and installed 2.2.2 and it works fine.( I am using HRD for rig control)
So I suspect my issue is with the audio of the SDR.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Jim,

that SDR only has I/Q output, are you using their SDR console application for demodulation?

Check that there is not excessive latency delivering Rx audio to WSJT-X, you can do a rough check by looking at the times signals appear to start on the WSJT-X waterfall.

Then this started happening without me touching anything in the settings.
Steve,

Because of the way Windows works there are times when "not touching anything" is not an option.
Especially when USB sound is involved you may need to check all settings each time you start up WSJT-X.
Certainly you must not assume the settings are correct when WSJT-X does not work properly.

Hi Jim,

With that information the classical first question is whether your PC time is correct, say within 1 second. You may check it using time.is net service.

Hi, Thanks for the add.  I had been running WSJT 2.1 without a problem. I upgraded to 2.2.2 and now I cannot get anything to decode.  Computer OS Win 10.  I see the signals in the waterfall.  The decode flashes put nothing decodes.  Singal in the green. I have tried going back to 2.1 now it doesn't decode.  Then went back to 2.2.2 still the same.
Any suggestions.

Auto Seq jumps from Tx4 to Tx6

Eric Todd
 

No settings changed, right after I get my report signal and I send RR73 it used to wait for their 73 then it would log and go to CQ. Now after Tx4 line it jumps to Tx6 and wants to log it. So I have to select Tx4 over and over again till I get there 73 if missed a few times.

Re: Saving / BACKING UP your files

Williams, G (af8c)
 

I have added additional information.  Use it in Windows  (7 through 10) to make a COMMAND PROMPT or Windows clickable  .BAT file which will create copies of useful files in your WSJT-X data path. These commands will create copies of your files with additional datestamp and  timestamp information appended to the file copies but will not disturb your original files.   Run the  set every so often when you want to make sure you have backups of your active WSJT-X data files.

These commands are NOT  compatible with LINUX, MAC, Raspberry PI, etc.

Instructions:

Copy these to a text file (.TXT)  of some name.  With a text editor like NOTEPAD, remove or remark out ("rem") lines  you don't want.  Also remove "rem" on the "cd" command to enable the cd command if you want to place the .BAT file outside  the WSJT-X data folder.  The syntax of the commands is very specific so be careful not to disturb the esoteric details!

( FYI Your %LOCALAPPDATA% path name is found by  running the "set" command in a COMMAND PROMPT window.  What you will view will be the contents of the system environment  variables.)

When you are done editing the text file, rename it  or copy it to some name with the .BAT extension instead of .TXT and place the .BAT file either in or out  of the WSJT-X folder. You can also make a desktop shortcut for the .BAT file if you want just to run it from the windows desktop .

Finally, IMPORTANT,  EXIT closed all WSJT-X applications  BEFORE running the BAT file!  Leave no WSJT-X processes running when you execute the set of commands!

HINT:  you can use this method carefully to make backup copies of any of your data files, WSJT_X or not.

It goes without saying that if your WSJT-X data files are large, you do not want to make too many backup copies on your system drive.   These commands will take some time to execute if you computer is older and slower.

------------------------

rem cd %LOCALAPPDATA%\WSJT-X

copy all.txt  all_%DATE:~-10,2%%DATE:~-7,2%%DATE:~-4,4%_%TIME:~0,2%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2%.txt

copy db.sqlite db_%DATE:~-10,2%%DATE:~-7,2%%DATE:~-4,4%_%TIME:~0,2%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2%.sqlite

copy FoxQso.txt FoxQso_%DATE:~-10,2%%DATE:~-7,2%%DATE:~-4,4%_%TIME:~0,2%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2%.txt

copy wsjtx.log  wsjtx_%DATE:~-10,2%%DATE:~-7,2%%DATE:~-4,4%_%TIME:~0,2%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2%.log

copy wsjtx_log.adi wsjtx_log_%DATE:~-10,2%%DATE:~-7,2%%DATE:~-4,4%_%TIME:~0,2%%TIME:~3,2%%TIME:~6,2%.adi

Ok folks - there are a lot of you seeming to not understand that stuff happens and that YOU  - NEED TO - back up your files on a regular basis - otherwise you risk losing tons of work over months/years of QSO's!

There are 2 files you should back up -
The wsjtx.log file & more importantly -

The wsjtx_log.adi file


Here's how I do it; it works & gives you multiple backups in case something gets corrupted.

Windows

Open File > goto Open Log Directory
Find & select - wsjtx.log - then right click on it & choose 'copy' - then right click anywhere in the blank space to the right of the file names & hit paste.

 You will now have wsjtx - Copy.log -
Now rename it with today's date - such as
- - wsjtx - bak19Sep2020  - -

Easy to find & read.

Now repeat the copy & paste for - wsjtx_log.adi

Now change wsjtx_log z Copy.adi  to 
wsjtx_log - 19Sep2020.adi

You now have a copy (19Sep2020.adi) that you can easily upload to QRZ, LoTW, etc. - moreover, when you copy to QRZ, for example, the filename of your last few uploads is shown on QRZ, so you can see how long & when you last updated it! Sweet!

Now, just one last step...

At least once a month - OR ANY TIME BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING WITH YOUR COMPUTER - COPY YOUR LAST FEW BACKUPS ON TO A USB THUMB DRIVE!!!  And Even copy it to another computer or Google Drive, etc.!

This cannot be emphasized enough! This is your LAST chance to easily make multiple backups, so that Windows updates, computer upgrades, fat-fingering the keyboard, lightning, etc. Does NOT cause permanent loss of your logged QSO's & make you lose more hair by pulling it out in frustration!

Good luck & be safe with your data. 😎

Hi Steven,

the same features are available on Windows 10 but you have to dig a bit deeper into the audio settings to find them. Look for the "Audio Control Panel" link at the bottom of the sounds settings window.

Thanks Bill and Bruce,

I see it now.  microsoft apparently decided to re-hide my system files during the last update and “AppData” wasn’t showing or being included in searches.  Fixed now.

I happened to actually be in the no-decode state when I saw Ed’s post and your response.  The program controls are still responsive when this happens but the waterfall and input meter are frozen and of course no decodes come in.  I’m running a Flex 6700 (SDR 3.1.12, Win10 2004) and DAX is responsive while WSJT-X decodes are frozen.  Restarting DAX anyway doesn’t help.

So I set “Save all” for a few progress bar cycles and checked but out of a zillion files there were none covering that period.  Obviously the file doesn’t get generated when decodes are frozen and “Save” was off (somehow?) when it happened this time.  I’ve stopped and relaunched WSJT-X, it’s un-frozen again, and I’ve got “Save All” re-enabled.  So when it happens again I’ll grab the latest file and send it to you.

Thanks for the help !

saved .WAV files go to the directory specified in "Settings->Audio". By default that is a directory called save under the WSJT-X log files directory ("Menu->File->Open log directory").

Hello,

I've been off the air for 5 days now with a problem vexing many members of the group, WSJT-X stops decoding after working properly for months on end.

The following conditions are true:

My computer clock is properly synced every 40 minutes. I've used two different NTP time sync programs and both check fine against time.is. When working properly WSJT-X displays dt values varying +/- 0.2 sec around 0.0 sec.

Signals are displayed on the waterfall and amplitude on the main window vertical tape display varies reflecting waterfall signal strengths. Waterfall signals can be saved to .wav files and listened to but not decoded when opened by using the file menu. Stored examples can be decoded.

Measured latency values cluster around 1000  usec, (is this too long?) with occasional peaks well above 5000 usec. but the times between spikes are much longer than, for instance, the duration of a FT4 or FT8 received transmission. On FT8 these spikes I believe are responsible for the occasional "0 decode" count. Repeated cycling between STOP and MONITOR or Powering off and restarting / rebooting the PC have no affect.

Repeatedly closing and opening WSJT-X has no affect. CPU usage, according to Task Manager, varies around 5%.

USB ports are not put to sleep.

The cause or causes appears to be independent of computer OS, hardware or WSJT-X version.  That this failure happens to so many people seems significant.  Is there a single cause or many? What can we do collectively to help fix this! Can the WSJT-X programmers add temporary hooks in the software to flag where the failure(s) occurs?

Hi Ed,

if you check the "Menu->Save->Save all" option then pick a good example of a non-decode period and send us the saved .WAV file for analysis please?
