What does CQ QRP indicate?
"I an not a QRP station and I want to QSO only with a QRP station"?
"I am a QRP station and I want to only be called by other QRP stations"?
"I am a QRP station and I will answer anyone"?
Please define QRP. <= 5 watts? <=100 watts? <=1 watt?

Yesterday, I reduced my power to 5 watts and answered a 'CQ QRP' call.

Hi Rex,

I am not trying to debate what makes a QSO, I am just interested in trying to learn how the Q65 SH messages are used in microwave EME. Traditionally, I know the TMO report system was used to provide information about how well a signal was being received, but O was the only indication that complete calls were received, so it was the only exchange that counted for a completion. Has that changed now on microwave EME, or what are the T and M traces used for?

MNI TNX and VY 73, Lance

Hi David

You are right this feature is not implemented on the A and B sub-modes which is probably an oversight for a Beta test version.  But it does work well on the C, D and E sub-modes that are primarily used for weak signal microwave EME and Terrestrial where this feature is used.Â

Hi Rex,

No, they don't, at least not in some modes of Q65.

For example, Q65 30A looks like this with Sh selected...

Dave,

It take less effort to extract first Cabrillo after the contest and edit that one for dupes. You may keep adif file intact for further reference in any case. You may keep also all.txt file recorded during the contest.

Using ver 2.2 without Omnirig. I have selected the FTDX3000 in the drop down menu in the radio tab in WSJT-X settings. This works for me - all except the split mode when I choose Rig, so I run Fake It. Otherwise all works as expected. Not sure if the FTDX 101MP works this way though. Also using Win4YaesuSuite which may make a difference? I don’t use Omnirig to interface with any other programs and everything works as expected

V2.3.0 does no more support you audio in and audio out as Windows default audio devices for good reason, at least not directly, see release notes.

Dave,

it does not put 599 in report, WSJT-X deals with real signal reports. The report recorded is based on the SNR of the received signals. For details of the RS(T) style reports recorded by WSJT-X in some contest modes refer to the message field 'r3' in the paper linked below (particularly in Table 2 and Appendix A):

Dave,

 

As John told FT4 and FT8 contests are special as they use actual report e.g. “579” instead of totally silly “599”. You don’t need to send “Your report is 599, please repeat all”.

As it is a real report it may change during message exchanges and sometime is may be difficult to tell which one is actually received during QSO, but that’s another issue!

Hi David,

if you really did exactly that then you may have a corrupted backup of your settings file. Renaming the WSJT-X settings file while the application is running is unwise.

I have two shortcuts for my TS2000X, one to run V2.3.0 and the other to run V2.4.0-rc1. 

After the diversion into setting up clones for different modes, I'm now back with my original issue.

If I go to Settings>Frequencies in V2.4.0-rc1 and set up an entry for "Q65" and a frequency of 50.305MHz then swap back to V2.3.0 to use JT4g (which will no longer run for me under V2.4.0-rc1 without getting a Subprocess error) but then go back to V2.4.0-rc1 to use Q65 (which isn't available in V2.3.0) the entry in Frequencies for Q65 has defaulted to "All" modes again.

Like I said at the start, I guess it's just a case of awaiting another full release.
