Hi Reino, and Steve,

the option to disable waveform ramp up and down is only for the FST4(W) modes, this was due to a particular design of non-linear PA suffering failure when presented by a slowly rising input signal. The feature is FST4(W) specific because the way that waveform is generated is specific to that those modes.

The release note information from WSJT-X v2.3.0 (2021-2-2) for that particular enhancement was:
 - FST4/W: Disable envelope  shaping at start and  end of transmission
   when environment variable FST4_NOSHAPING=1. Works for fst4sim too.

I don't see anything in the Quick Start guide that makes me think there would be a problem with non-linear  (Class C, E, etc.) power amps in Q65.  Am I correct?

Hi Marc,

others have addressed the issue about not having a CAT connection to your rig. With respect to the time displayed in WSJT-X, do you realize that WSJT-X uses UTC time, not local time?

>I just tested with USB and Data/Pkt modes and Rig split operation - no joy - the exact same behavior

 

Mark,

 

That’s interesting! Could we have different settings in rig and/or wsjt-x or different firmware version in rig?

My rig has:
Main: V01-22 Perhaps the only affecting one, if any

DSP: V05-55

TFT: V02-01

FFT: V81-00

My relevant CAT settings in rig:

037 CAT SELECT USB

038 CAT RATE 19200

039 CAT TIME OUT TIMER 1000

040 CAT RST ENABLE

WSJT-X:

Rig: Yaesu FTDC-3000

Poll Interval: 1 s

CAT Control: COM4

Baud Rate: 19200

Data Bits: Default

Stop Bits: Default

Handshake: Default (Hardware, I have learned)

Force Control Lines: none activated

PTT Method: CAT

Mode: Datta/Pkt

Split Operation: Rig

 

What else could affect to the different behaviour in the settings?

By the way I tested only the band change, not transmission / reception. I assumed that the band chage already tells the whole story.

Unless you have a CAT connection set Radio to "none"

PTT will have to use VOX (if the Signalink has that) or COM port.

>I have attached a snip of the WSJT-X decodes and the MSHV decodes for the same time this afternoon on 6M, look at the corresponding signal levels of the same calls, also note that the time period are exactly the same, please note there is indication of the sound level of WSJT-X because the monitor is off, so do not go off one and say you had no input, it was hovering around the 40dB mark before I hit stop. I can not find a decode level setting on MSHV, but it was set to normal on WSJT-X.

 

Derek,

 

I would like to see also WSJT-X waterfall  in addition to the MHSV one.
Of course the corresponding *.wav files would make comparison possible in a proper manner.

Has anyone here run into only being able to get around 15db on a raspberry pi? I've bumped up the audio in pulse audio, put the jumper on my signalink and still no increase. I'd love to get it to a db of 30.

Any tips?

signalink usb or sl1+ does not have CAT.  you must have been using something in addition to signalink to have cat.   normally set ptt to vox, as signalink creates the ptt with a built in vox circuit


the clock being off 4 hours ( wrong time zone) is a windows setting.   click on the clock at the bottom, and adjust time, should send you to a time zone screen

Thanks for the reply,

I am running MacOS Big Sur, IC-7300, WSJT-X v2.5.1 right now. It is with this setup that will not change bands. My Computer did an upgrade and everything started then. I can go back and install v2.3.1 and everything works. I have deleated the INI file and started over but no luck. Thanks for any help or advice.

How are you connecting audio to the computer from the rig?    HRD only matters if you're using it for rig control/CAT nothing to do with audio.

Check your clock.  It has to be pretty accurate.    If it get to be near a second out or greater, you won't decode.

You can get a good idea of how accurate your clock is at this site --> https://time.is/

Hi Steve,

Non-linear amplifier is fine in principle. Only requirement is that it can deal with the smooth amplitude change during power-up and power-down phases or those are prevented by an extra configuration setting. Unfortunately I don’t remember what it is, an additional configuration file. There was discussion on that issue during 2.4.0 release candidates.

Hi Gilles,

 

I would like a try, but with that information you shared it is impossible. I need to know your Colors settings and which color you saw and which you expected to see. One possible reason is that grid information is not recorded into the wsjtx_log.adi file.
