Re: VS: [WSJTX] Behavior of Hold Tx Freq #general

AB2ZY
 

This is not clicking in the waterfall. It is double clicking on a CQ in the decode list. With the latest release the "Hold Tx Freq" checkbox acts like it is always checked.

I have to be very quick to click the "set Tx freq to Rx freq" button when I wish to respond to a CQ simplex.

So far unchecking "allow frequency change during transmit" seems to have cured the problem with "fake it" and the radio switching back to original frequency.

Goalpost in NA VHF Contest #ContestMode

My TX goalpost doesn't move to the calling stations frequency when I tick
on a CQ (or the stations callsign). TX Hold is not marked. V5.0.1 rc1 nor in
2.4.0.
Thanks,

Re: After upgrade to WSJT-X 2.4.0, an IC-7600 no longer changes bands on SPE Expert 1K-FA power amplifier #Cat_RigControl

Frode Igland
 

Bill,
Responding to your reply in digest #1862, my friend has now reported on his "Split Operation" settings in WSJT-X 2.4.0 GA. He has used "Fake it" for years with no problems, and used he same when he upgraded to v2.4.0 GA and the PA immediately stopped following WSJT-X and IC-7600 band changes. He has now tried with both "Rig" and "None", and there is no difference. The PA still does not follow the band changes unless it gets a "Tune" signal.

As mentioned earlier, I have used v2.4.0 GA on the exact same setup, an IC-7600 and an SPE Expert 1K-FA PA without any problems with band changes, so this is works for some.

WSJT-X 2.4 Mac ReadMe.txt documentation error? #macOS

Mark Sunderlin
 

The ReadMe.txt file that comes with WSJT-X, 2.4 for Mac says to run the command. 'sysctl -a | grep sysv.shm' and says. "If shmmax is not shown as 52428800 contact me ..."

When I run that command, I get shmmax: 104857600

This is exactly double what the ReadMe.txt file suggests.  I suspect 104,857,600 is correct as I see multiple references to that number as "the right" number here in various messages from the group ...

So maybe this is just outdated docs?  The program seems to run just fine on my Catalina 10.15.7 Mac ....

Last I looked, there was a "Getting Started" doc on the N1MM+ website for use with WSJT-X.

VS: [WSJTX] WSJTX keying radio #NewUser

Well I have it keying the radio again and now I have a different quirk as I do not get any replies, I believe a reply would be WX0XXX KD9DOG there ID then mine is that correct?

 

Hi Jim,

I assume that you have looked into The User Guide. In section 7.1. Standard Exchange is a nice presentation what you should see. Normally you will see after your call sign either a locator or signal report.

For further help we need to know something more e.g.:
Do you see at the Band Activity window any messages? Without seeing other stations it is better to check reception issues before trying to transmit.
Is the DT values between -1.0 and 1.0 ? You may check your PC time using time.is. It is only checking not setting.
Which band you are trying to use?
What kind antenna you have?
Does your rig show an output power and is SWR below 3?
You may look whether your signal is received by some other stations using PSKreporter
Display Reception Reports (pskreporter.info).

G90 #FT8

Chuck Eglhaut
 

Tried to connect Xiegu G90 to my computer. I had it working on UBITX and IC-718. But I tried connecting to G90 I don’t have Any DB showing on the DB chart on left and no signals in the waterfall or in the left hand screen next to transmitted messages. I using Ham Radio Deluxe. I tried Xiegu Ce-19 plus the USB cable I got with the radio. I don’t think I am getting a signal from my receive to the computer. I am using windows 10.and WSJT 2.4


VS: [WSJTX] Behavior of Hold Tx Freq #general

Reino Talarmo
 

 

Just upgraded to 2.4.0. Using w/N1MM at the moment.

When I click on a CQ with Hold Tx Freq unchecked, the transmit frequency stays wherever it was last set. This was not the previous behavior.  Is there a way to fix the issue so that the Tx Freq follows receive?

 

Hi Al,

For CQ set both RX and TX frequencies to the same spot using Ctrl+click on waterfall. Tx follows Rx only, when you answer somebody on a Rx frequency by double clicking, I think.

Re: Where to delete previously worked station data #ContestMode #logging #FT8

Do you have N1MM+'s WSJT Decode List window open? That window transfers dupe and multiplier information from N1MM+ back to WSJT-X. The dupe/multiplier status is indicated by the background color for the callsign only (not for the entire line) in CQ lines in the WSJT-X Band Activity window. A background color of red behind the callsign means a new multiplier, a background color of blue behind the callsign means a new QSO but not a dupe, and a background color of grey behind the callsign means the contact is a dupe. N1MM+ evaluates dupe/multiplier status for all contacts in the current contest log, regardless of mode, so stations you have worked in other modes on the same band have a grey background. The same information is also displayed directly in the N1MM+ Decode List window.

I have a Heil Proset 7 headset that I use with my Yaesu FTDX-10. When running WSJT-X with the headset plugged into the front microphone connector. I get spurious side signal indications from the transmit frequency (each side of center) on the Yaesu FTDX-10 waterfall display. Only happens in certain segments of the band location for FT8/FT4. Using in the area above 1500 hz. When I unplug the headset. The signal cleans up to be nice, clean and crisp. Input and output levels are set perfect. i.e. No ALC signal deflection on transmit. Output level set to barely power decrease point. Doesn't matter what power level is being used. Signal input set to 30-35 db range. Radio volume (AF) is turned down to zero (0). Make any sense? One thought I had was, since the Heil Proset 7 is both a Input and output device there might be some signal leakage or other anomaly. Crazy thought I know. Just kind of rambling.

VS: [WSJTX] #logging

Reino Talarmo
 

I'm looking for suggestions regarding contest logging. I've read the thread on resetting the Cabrillo log; that's not my problem. What I want is to be able to ignore history prior to the contest, but check for dupes during the contest. Do I need to create new logs? If so, which ones? Thanx much! 73 Don NA6Z

 

Hi Don,

If you want to run barefoot, then you could use Cabrillo log for logging and wsjtx_log.adi for dupes checking.

You already know how to reset Cabrillo part of the job. The ignoring of the history happens by renaming the wsjtx_log.adi file (so that it will be available after the contest), closing wsjt-x and opening it. At that point wsjt-x cannot find a wsjtx_log.adi and so there is no history stored into the program memory. When you log the first contact, then wsjt-x generates a new wsjtx_log.adi.

After the contest you may combine the renamed wsjtx_log.adi and the one used during the contest using any text editor and save it as wsjtx_log.adi. During combination you need to left out from the contest adi file the header information. The combination is needed, if you wish to see in your everyday history also contacts you made during the contest.

N1MM Plus and WriteLog interoperate with WSJT-X. N1MM is by far the most
popular and is free. I started out with WriteLog, switched to N1MM in
2008 and have not looked back. I don't know of any other CONTEST loggers
that interoperate with WSJT-X. Expect a learning curve.

Re: Where to delete previously worked station data #ContestMode #logging #FT8

Super fast and dirty way:

Start WSJT with “-r contest” or whatever else is meaningful to you after that -r so WSJT spawns a fresh setup for another rig.

You’ll get a fresh configuration. When you’re all done and logged, nuke the config from orbit until the next contest.
