Hi Carlos:

I've only been QRV for just over a year with MSK144. I use it on 6m and 2m. I've been through a few meteor showers.

I can't speak for everyone, but here in North America, I've never seen anyone running the TxCQ option.. even during busy times. (You can tell if someone is using it because the chosen TxCQ offset appears on the TX6 CQ frame that gets transmitted).

Last December on Two meters, it was so busy that I had three stations calling me while I was working another. I managed to respond to them all with no difficulty. (I was pleased to log four QSO's on two meters in under 1/2 hr :) )

I'm not sure about MSK144 traffic in Europe.. I would watch to see what others are doing. If it gets busy and you see offsets appearing in received CQ decodes, then you might consider running split...

Hi everybody,
I am now QRV on MS-50.280 for at least 2 Months, I am well in working
normal QSO.
Now, in a few days; the Lyrides meteor shower is voming up.
Please tell how to operate this issue and not to disturb the other stations.
Should I tick the TxCQ260 ?
Or just call CQ on the Region 1 QRG: 50,280 ??
thanks for answer, 73, Karl OE3JAG

I wanted a visual tracking of US and Canadian grids worked. I have been using WG7J GridMapper. Web based, so MacOS users have an alternative to WinTel apps.  Basically, you download .adi file of QSLs from logging or LoTW, then upload to GridMapper.  I can generate a .pdf file to view. Thanks to the ham who developed it. Only complaint is that it misses a few confirmed gridsquares. I examined the .adi records of the missed squares and cannot find anything amiss. 

There was another App that ran on MacOS, Gridtracker. Looks good, but seems to be a work in process. Icons with no idea what they do and not info/help files that I could see. 

I too would like to find other alternatives.

Thank you Bill and Mike.
The changes you listed and one more dependency error and I completed this build. There were numerous issues listed in Fortran modules but I assume that they are resolved at execute time. The last cmake ran well. I have attached the two terminal logs. Alas, I was only after one file, 'wsprd'. I run wsprdaemon to collect many wspr bands concurrently. I have been trying to use this new SBC but my test did not work. I will fall back to the Raspberrypi.

Try http://dxatlas.com/DxAtlas/

The rectangular projection map offers a grid square overlay and has a tool that allows you to mark each square as "worked" or "confirmed".

+ The freeware DXLab Suite interoperates with both WSJT-X and DX Atlas. They provide the ability to display worked and confirmed grid squares:

Icom IC-7300 using USB cable. I upgraded to 2.3.1 from 2.3.0 and have been having random rig control loss on FT8.  I do not think this is an RFI issue as I have been using the exact same setup with 2.3.0 and previous versions with no rig control loss at all.  Anyone else seeing this?

locked Re: Sudden blindness to sound card and ports windows 10 #AudioIssues #Cat_RigControl #IssueReport

Chris
 

Update: after hours of work, I solved this. It turned out to be caused by a (very) badly behaving modem card! It actually permanently damaged the operating system, so just uninstalling and removing wasn't enough.  I had to do a maintenance upgrade to Windows 10 to recover. This takes hours as it is just like a full install except it doesn't remove programs and files.

I now have a different problem to address: Please note that the settings are the same for mixw4 and they work there. This used to work some months back which was the last time I was able to use Wsjt due to the sound card issue.The rig is a Kenwood TS-450S.  I may start a new thread on this, but thought I'd give those watching this one a shot at it first! It looks like it is failing to get ID.  This might be some error that crept into the rig definitions.  A re install has been tried and still the same result. It works fine with my Yaesu FT-817 (with different com port of course).

locked Using radios for wajtx and remote #Cat_RigControl

Gerald Klotz
 

Good afternoon. I got my income 7300 and 9700 set up and working again but forgot to check output power, which turns out to be zip. 

I went ahead and worked on the icom res-ba1 software and got that working remotely with both radios. I went to do some ft8 and no power out. I know it’s something in the settings somewhere, but I keep missing it. Everything works fine and I. An control both rigs but can’t transmit any power on either radio. Both have their own codec installed and assigned.

When I switch to 144.174 the software switches radios and then to the hf radio for hf freq’s.

Anyone have an idea?
