My interest centers around starting wsjt-x with the --rig-name option.
I am primarily interested in those settings which affect the rig configuration during startup and any nuances or subtleties in the usage of these setting. 
I saw something about this mentioned in an earlier posting but the usage was unclear to me.

With respect to my ability to understand technical details, I am pretty technically literate and I am able to bit-streams, byte-streams, packet formats, etc., including the command set for my rig (TS-570) so feel free to comment with the minimum necessary level of detail .

locked Restore QSOs to the log file after a crash #FT8 #raspberryPi

Anuraag Bhargava
 

Hello all,

I run wsjtx on a raspberry pi and recently had a bad SD card leading to lost data. I ended up rebuilding everything but lost my log files of QSOs.

I log everything automatically into QRZ.com and can get an extract from there. The format however seems a bit different. Is there a way I can import this into the wsjtx log file?

Has anyone tried this before?

All help appreciated. 

Thanks in advance.

That is almost my exact configuration.   Each "machine" has to have a static IP.   On Linux you will want to build and install samplicator to split the UDP traffic among two different IP's and ports.   That way you can still use CQRLog's features such as the CQ Monitor and logging, while sending the UDP traffic off to windows as well.

 I use a old copy of Windows 7 on Virtualbox to run Log4OM.  You can just as well use any other program such as the DXLab suite.  As long as you can tell it what IP address and UDP port to listen to.  I do this out of pure laziness.  Someday, I will get around to fixing CQRLog so that it uploads to QRZ.   Then I can eliminate this weird stuff all together.   For now, it works.

There has been a long standing problem with JTAlert in that you can not set the IP address for JTAlert.   So it will always be hanging out listening on 127.0.0.1.  It simply won't work.   Not to mention it has to detect WSJT-X running before launch.   It's better to toss it and use a native Linux tool such as AlarmeJT or CQRLog.  Both have source available so you can make it yours.

Hi Ken,

other than generally being the standard .INI format used widely on MS WIndows, the value formats are internal and should not be of interest since they are all readable and in most cases settable using the WSJT-X application. The actual value formats are defined by the Qt Framework we use for system and cross-platform abstractions.

Perhaps I can help more if you can be more specific why you need to understand these internal values?

Hi Dave,

I just updated to wxjt-x v2.4.0 in my Windows 7 PC and exactly the same happened i.e. all worked B4 stations were in red. I don’t know the reason and normal Rescan nor closing and opening wsjt-x did found only five worked B4 stations!
I checked that the wsjtx_log.adi file was in the log directory as before. I renamed it to wsjtx_log-210530.adi and closed wsjt-x. I reopened wsjt-x and there was zero worked B4 station as it should. Then I copied the renamed log file and renamed it into wsjtx_log.adi. After closing and opening wsjt-x all worked B4 were green again. So that solved the problem for me, YMMV.
As I said I have no idea what actually happened with windows, but that solved my problem. I did not tried PC restarting.

I run WSJT-X in Linux connected to DXLab on a Windoze box to do my needs highlighting in WSJT-X. It works well. I've tried JTalert a couple of times over the years but this has not been supported. Maybe that's changed. Not a big fan anyway. I've tried AlarmeJT in Linux but it was just too much clutter....

Hi Jim,

as far as I know there is no issue with interoperation with DX Lab Suite across the Internet, specifically with SpotCollector, all you should need to do is open the server port in your firewall (usually 2237) for incoming UDP on the machine running SpotCollector, and specify that machine's IP address in the WSJT-X "Settings->Reporting->UDP Server" field.

With JTAlert I don't think it is possible as JTAlert does several things that require access to WSJT-X files and processes of the machine it is running on.

Hi Lars,

 

if you are getting power in RTTY modes then I doubt you have a working Tx audio connection, that is probably just the rig keying one of the RTTY tones.

 

Check you rig is correctly configured and connected to take audio from your sound card on Tx when in USB-DATA mode. E.g. DATA MOD -> USB if you are using a USB connection to your PC and rig.

 

Also check your Tx audio levels: https://wsjtx.groups.io/g/main/message/13890

Hi Lars,

 

if you are getting power in RTTY modes then I doubt you have a working Tx audio connection, that is probably just the rig keying one of the RTTY tones.

 

Check you rig is correctly configured and connected to take audio from your sound card on Tx when in USB-DATA mode. E.g. DATA MOD -> USB if you are using a USB connection to your PC and rig.

 

Also check your Tx audio levels: https://wsjtx.groups.io/g/main/message/13890

Hi Bruce and thanks for the tip. I changed type in Omni-Rig to IC-7100e4-DATA and set WSJTX setting  to                       

Data/pkt.

Following happend with Rig setting :

USB-D TUNE - TX ON – No Power out. However Mode on 7100 did NOT change to RTTY-R

RTTY-R TUNE – TX ON - Full Power (10W) out. Rig mode shifted to USB-D

RTTY     TUNE – TX ON – No Power. Rig mode shifted to USB-D

 

Did the same test with WSJTX Mode None.

USB-D TX ON - NO Power

RTTY-R TX On - Full Power (10W out)

AM TX ON – Full AM Power ( abt 5W out)

 

I guess I have to do as Bill says; drop Omni-Rig. Hope I can do that without need to go to the

station site. One way drive is around 6 hours.

Lars,  Try the rig in the dropdown for IC-7100e4-DATA

It has for the DATA command this,

[pmDIG_U]
; These lines select USB-D for USB digital mode, FIL1
Command=FEFE88E0.2600.01.01.01.FD
ReplyLength=16
Validate=FEFE88E02600010101FD.FEFEE088FBFD

 

If you want FIL2 then edit this entry like this,-Rig to

FEFE88E0.2600.01.01.02.FD

And like this,

Validate=FEFE88E02600010102FD.FEFEE088FBFD

This worked fine until a few weeks ago. A lot of Windows updates. CAT works (supplied log).
Setting > Radio > Mode: Data/pkt ON. Pressing TUNE. Tune shift to RED. Mode on 7100 Shift to RTTY-R and stay on the mode. Power out is OK - about 5 to 10 Watts. No SWR Have to reset RTTY-R manually.
Setting > Radio > Mode: None Pressing TUNE .Shift to Red. Rig shifting to TX . NO Output at all. Can see on a remote SWR meter that IC-7100 shifting and also in the log.
Setting > Rig Mode from USB-D to AM. Pressing Tune. Works OK. Same with setting rig RTTY. Working OK

I have been fiddling around with the rig control head so I might have change something in the IC-7100 settings but what? Any suggestions or help are welcome.
