locked WSJTx not decoding, and problem with saved files #IssueReport #Q65

K5DOG
 
Edited

Situation: 23 cm EME WSJTx in Q65-60c mode failed to decode strong clear signals. 
These same signals simultaneously decoded fine in Map65 v3.0, Q65-60C
The saved files do not decode and in the Wide Graph appear to be too wide for Q65-60C.
They do not decode on a different computer with either v2.4 or 2.5-RC1

Computer : AMD FX-6300 Six core 3.5 ghz
8.00 GB Ram
Windows 10 home 64 bit.
Generic USB audio device

WSJT-x v2.5.0-RC1
Q65-60C
Max Drift = 0 (but increasing this does not help to decode)
Aggressive decoding level =10
USB Sound device set for 48000hz, 16 bit mono.



Three examples attached.  I have relevant .iq files if needed.
I also attached an earlier saved file from the same computer that decoded and saved just fine (210607_1206)

Jim .... it is easy to conclude there is no activity.  But look at the vertical bar on the left side of the screen.  Adjust it down where it is not stuck at the top.  When it is swinging from 60 to 80, the band will come alive.  I use a 7300 and the RF knob adjusts it easily.

Good luck.

Your radio perhaps hasn't selected a dummy load or no antenna for that band has it?  There is lots of FT-8 activity on 7.074.

According to the manual, SSB-D works with the ACC (13 pin DIN)

Maybe you can use LBP2 software, with this program multiple programs can share 1 port.

This three-some would make a great display for Field Day, but N1MM and GridTracker seem to share the same ports, and although I get N1MM working well with WSJT-X, I  can't seem to add GridTracker.   Does anyone have a solution?  Thanks.

Hi Joe - hope u are well...yes of course I suspected some local problem here -- uninstalled all versions of WSJT and did fresh install of 2.5.0 rc1 and problem seems to have been resolved. At the time of the repeated crashes i was running 2 programs of WSJT simultaneously and transmitting on 1296 ft8. Problem was not there on 2m so I now suspect 1296 RF was getting into my computer (running 200w to antenna directly over my shack)...have not been able to duplicate it again...hope I cant hihi....Thanx for all your work on WSJT over the years- it sure has transformed ham radio, especially on the VHF/UHF bands.

Steve Kavanagh
 

Hi Peter

Yes, I saw your posting earlier...an interesting thread.  I am not sure I understand what the reasons are for the ramp up and down.  My interest in Q65 is really for VHF and up, where Class D and E amps are mostly impractical (though getting closer over time as technology improves), but running a Class C amp (or class A or AB in hard saturation) is easy.  I'm guessing there would be no equivalent issue with the ramps in this case, though I suppose there might be a momentary increase in dissipation.  But it would be helpful to know the waveform and what one gives up by eliminating the ramps.

Hi Jim,

please put the attached file into your WSJT-X configuration files directory (on macOS that is ~/Library/Preferences), then restart WSJT-X and do a minimal test that demonstrates the issue. In this case that would seem to be merely a band change using the WSJT-X band selection drop-down list. Then quit WSJT-X. It will have created a file on your Desktop called WSJT-X_RigControl.log , send me that file for analysis please (g4wjs <at> classdesign <dot> com).

Once you have sent the log file you can delete it from your Desktop and also delete the log configuration file to revert to normal operation.

Peter Hall, VK6HP
 

Hello Steve,

I was the poster who raised the issue with the FST4(W) waveforms in this forum and in the RSGB LF group.  You can see the later part of the discussion here:

https://wsjtx.groups.io/g/main/topic/79269122#20188

The problem arises because, at some point in the chain, the analog drive signal has to be converted to digital form, preferably with as little jitter as possible.  Typical squaring circuits have a dead or indeterminate band - however tiny - and, with very slow envelopes, produce erratic pulse drive to the (very widely used) Class D or E PAs, the designs of which typically requires a well-tempered pulse train.  As you see from the previous discussion there are several solutions possible, the most satisfactory being the setting of the environment variable as outlined by Bill.

I haven't tried Q65 yet but can do so in the next week.  Whether there's a problem will depend on the how slow the envelope rise and fall is.  I agree it'd be handy to have some descriptions or, better yet, sketches of the various WSJT mode signals.

73, Peter.

Hi Bill

Thanks for the response.

However, I'm unable to see AVX mentioned under the Core I3-370M processor column in the attachment.

The second column which does include AVX is for a different processor - Core I7-2600.

I extracted the data on the two processors I use for wsjt-x, the I3 is in the shack laptop and the I7 is in a desktop in another building, which I often use to run wsjt-x remotely  by piping the audio to and from the shack laptop over the lan.

I'd be happy if the laptop I3 does support AVX but i don't think so.

There's no 'bug' in JTAlert ... the problem that's being referred to recently is the issue with the MS .NET update causing sound problems.
It has nothing to do with not displaying colors as that has been found to be issues with not having the UDP settings properly set.
