locked contacts being logged in wsjt.log but not in wsjt_log.adi #FT8

Ed Radlo
 



I'm running WSJT-X version 2.4.0.

I made a bunch of FT8 contacts yesterday (Sept. 2 UTC) that WSJT-X logged to wsjtx.log but not to wsjtx_log.adi.

I know this because:

    When I imported wsjtx_log.adi into my N1MM+ logger, the Sept. 2 contacts were not there; and

    the timestamp on my wsjtx_log.adi file says that it was last updated on Sept. 1, not Sept. 2.

How do I get WSJT-X to log to both the .log and .adi files, which is supposed to happen according to the WSJT-X manual?

Any and all advice will be appreciated.

73,  Ed  AJ6V


locked LoTW Confirmations #TechnicalHelpQuestion

Patrick Hung
 

This is off-topic, but I'm not sure where else to ask this:

I've been working toward DXCC on LoTW, and have about 10 DXs that have not confirmed on LoTW; some of these apparently do not upload logs to LoTW. I wonder how some of you folks deal with this issue, and also, whether LoTW will take scanned copies (electronic or scanned) of QSL cards as proof of QSO contact? Lastly, will LoTW recognize eQSL or ClubLog confirmations? It's too bad that these electronic services aren't consolidated.

I use N3FJP for a logger, btw, if that's of relevance in a solution.

Thanks for your comments and thoughts.

Is that when you start up WSJTX or when you transmit?

In my case WSJTX works but JTDX is giving me that error on startup -- just started happening one day a couple weeks ago.  That error message is pretty useless but I guess it's a good as Qt can give.

No RF getting into computer.    Because no radio is connected.  Radio type is set to NONE as done for demonstration decode of sample files.  The most basic configuration.

I get that when RF gets into my computer. Sometimes this requires a complete reboot.

Did this problem start happening after an update to HRD?

There have been no updates that I know of. I'll look up the version when I get back to the house. After getting the 7300 I had an antenna damaged in a storm. I only recently started using the 7300 heavily and just noticed the correlation with the TX Offset change. Before when it happened I thought I was bumping the frequency knob (and may have been doing that too. My desk was a little cluttered.) So I really don't know how long it has been occurring. Since it takes a large change in offset frequency to make this happen and usually my changes are small it may have been going on a long time I just never happened to trigger the behavior at the same time I was watching the radio frequency display.

Hi Rick,

the current WSJT-X v2.5.0 release candidate is RC5 and will run until the end of September.

Gene,

thanks for the log file. Surprised to find you are using HRD for rig control, you had not mentioned that. Did this problem start happening after an update to HRD?

That has never been implemented in hamlib but it's on my list for doing it in 4.4.

It's a bit of a major change since there's no polling inside hamlib right now but that may change too.

Hi Mike,

That sounds good.

I also set transceive ('1a05007101') on and use Cmd x'00' and x'01' to accept 
unsolicited Frequency and Mode changes for the selected VFO. That relieved 
the need to read the selected VFO during the poll cycle. Seems to work extremely well.  

Don't know how that will complicate your code.

That's what hamlib does now.

I added some change just a couple of weeks ago that completely implements this and we don't see any VFO swapping anymore on WSJTX or JTDX.

So it will be in the next release of each of those.

That may be why you are getting intermittent problems when switching 
offsets that quickly where the software has to actually change the un-selected 
VFO frequency. 

It is a 7300 about 4 months old with the latest firmware.  But something causing a delay would make sense.  So the software is sending a command to ultimately change VFO B but due to a delay  (or something) the radio is still on A and that frequency gets changed.  Then during a regular poll the software sees the changed A frequency and acts the same way as if I had just changed the frequency manually.
