Hi Bill,

excessively optimistic signal reports are often due to restricted receiver bandwidth. The FT8 decoder relies on a reasonably flat receiver bandwidth across the displayed waterfall, and at least 2500 Hz wide. Narrower input data bandwidth will cause underestimation of the noise level.

Same here, v2.5.0 downloaded and installed perfectly. One thing I do notice is that there seem to be a much wider range of received signal strengths, with quite a few lower than they might have been with previous releases. Maybe WSJT-X, maybe recent Windows updates altering the CODEC settings. No problems operating, just rather disconcerting when I sent -01 to an N4 earlier and got +30 back!

Yes, I have been using "fake it" to split the transceiver transmit frequency from the receive frequency for about two years with zero problems.

Two days ago, however, both the receive frequency and the transmit frequency began to move.   By the third transmission in a sequence during a QSO, I can no longer hear any of the FT8 signals in the passband anymore and I have lost the contact I was making......without fail.

On the video I posted you can see the receive frequency stepping away from its first setting which is where I started after setting the frequency for 80m using wsjt-x.

Something disabling and different is happening and any other thoughts you might have would be great.   I completely understand fake it moves the transmit frequency around to manage where in the passband transmit occurs.

But, the receive frequency, my perception, never changed before.  It stayed on the frequency set by wsjt-x.

Could this be an effect of RFI? Your radio moves to transmit in the middle of the passband, and fails to move back because of RFI corrupting that command? You say nothing else has changed, but corrosion and age could have had an effect on your antenna system...

locked Re: WSJT-X and 630 meters, a match made in heaven #FST4 #FST4W

Peter Hall, VK6HP
 

Mark,

Thanks for posting the information about your MF station.  I was particularly interested in the re-used Southern Avionics Company NDB components since a small group which I formed a couple of years ago has obtained access to a de-commissioned NDB here in VK6.  The station used two SAC transmitters, various changeover and monitoring equipment, an auto-coupler, and a 22 m live mast with a somewhat indeterminate (as yet) radial field.   We are replacing a good deal of the original electronics with homebrew and commercial ham gear but we'll keep the autocoupler.  Operations will be initially on 630 m using a Zachtek exciter and a very robust push-pull Class D PA; about 25 W transmitter output should give us the legal 5 W EIRP.  In due course we'll have full remote operation supporting (at least) WSJT-X digital modes on 630 and 2200 m.  It's taken a while to get the site access details sorted out but I'm hopeful the worst is now - almost - behind us.  There's a placeholder QRZ page under the callsign VK6MJM which, in a nod to history, preserves the ident of the NDB.

More immediately, my home 630 m station in Perth uses a Kenwood transceiver as a low-level exciter and receiver; a homebrew 300 W Class D PA; a homebrew coupler; and an umbrella-loaded T transmit antenna which looks suspiciously like a re-purposed ZS6BKW HF doublet.  There's a bit more detail on my QRZ page if you're interested.  From this corner of the world all the activity is JT-mode digital and I was pleased that the WSJT-X team responded so promptly to a request to allow optional disabling of very slow envelope edges in the FST4 and 4W modes, thereby helping users of simple non-linear PAs to try the new modes with existing gear.  It's encouraging to see people experimenting with the new modes with, for example, reports of JA FST4W-1800 signals received in VK7 the other day.

I have successfully utlized wsjt-x for FT-8 with the FT-1000MP almost from the initial introduction of that mode.   Years now.
I correctly set up my FT-1000MP based on the SignaLink instructions for USER mode here:
http://www.tigertronics.com/ft1000mp.htm <http://www.tigertronics.com/ft1000mp.htm>

I am using the USER mode which activates PKT + LSB on the front panel but with the above instructions I end up on USB.   This has worked for all digital modes for years.

I correctly setup SignaLink USB  for Windows 7 based on instructions here:
http://www.tigertronics.com/windows7_8_10_SLUSB.htm <http://www.tigertronics.com/windows7_8_10_SLUSB.htm>

This setup worked beautifully until a two days ago when suddenly, I noticed that, upon transmit from wsjt-x the frequency was shifting down by -0.5 MHz with many, but, not all transmissions initiated from wsjt-x.

After two transmissions, the contact lost my signal due to frequency shift (that was my first heads up).

The frequency shift does not occur outside of wsjt-x transmit.

Now, two days later, I have migrated to the latest version of wsjt-x (previously was using
2.3.1 from May, 2021 now using 2.5, gone through all my menu settings and checked and rechecked setup settings in wsjt-x to no avail.

Oddly, when I first noticed the the shift it was negative.  Today it is positive.  Always it is 0.5 MHz in step size.

I have carefully gone through the FT-1000MP menu system for hours and all looks OK to me.

The shift does NOT occur outside of wsjt-x when I transmit outside of User Mode.

If anyone has any thoughts, I would be interested to hear them.  I am, now, two days on, at a loss.

Mike,

the shift you are seeing is 500 Hz, not 500 kHz as you incorrectly state.

WSJT-X is behaving correctly, there is nothing wrong! You have selected ""Settings->Radio->Split Operating->Fake It", you chose to do that, and it is the best setting for your rig. That causes the software to adjust your rig's VFO dial frequency and Tx audio tones to always keep the tones in the 1500 Hz to 1999 Hz range, which is optimal for use with an SSB transmitter.

I have carefully gone through the FT-1000MP menu system for hours and all looks OK to me.

The shift does NOT occur outside of wsjt-x when I transmit outside of User Mode.

If anyone has any thoughts, I would be interested to hear them.   I am, now, two days on, at a loss.

Hi Ralph,

there is nothing stopping you from entering a message like the following
into the Tx5 field:

<G4WJS> <DL/OE3RSU> 590000 JN75mm

It will be transmitted, and if the receiving station has previously copied
both callsigns un-hashed, then it will be received exactly as entered.
I've experimented a little with this:
- If I do this with my recent QSO partner in the first hash, wsjtx will
pop up a warning (at the QSO-partner) that EU VHF mode should be turned on.
I don't want to irritate QSO partners with this :-)
[Worse: These warnings pile up if the message repeats having to
confirm each one in series, maybe this should be changed to pop up the
warning only once? But this is a minor issue since directly-addressed
contest messages should be rare. Looks like a denial-of-service attack
on some of the bot operators could be mounted that way :-) A
config-option to turn off these popups would be nice.]
- If I put my own callsign in both hashes the QSO partner is not
affected.

But: In both cases if I'm replacing my 73 message with this special
message I'm never prompted for logging the QSO. (Even if I put 590073 as
the combined report/sequence number :-)

So I guess this *can* be used by a mobile operator for sending their
locator (and their callsign in *both* hashes) from time to time but
cannot be used to modify the usual QSO sequence.

Or can we come up with a modification (a special value in one of the
fields) of the EU VHF message that does not pop up a warning at the
receiver? (And maybe even not display the report)

BTW: I was testing this with two computers w/ microphone and speakers.
Is there a better way to test the auto-sequencing code without resorting
to a real communication setup (and wait times for transmissions)?

Hi Jason,

Have you tested possible RFI? Turning down power or using dummy load?

locked WSJT-X and 630 meters, a match made in heaven #FST4 #FST4W

When I decided to operate on the newly opened 630 meter band, the lack of commercial amateur radio equipment for the bands below 160 meters forced me to get creative So here's the approach that I took to get on 630 meters by utilizing a repurposed non directional beacon, a modified HP downconverter, and a reconfigured 80 meter dipole antenna.
I originally used JT9 and WSPR but have migrated to FST4 and FST4W. On 630 meters every db of S/N improvement helps and I really appreciate the inclusion of the MF and LF modes. It's astounding what the roughly 350 milliwatts EIRP that my antenna radiates can do. Claude Shannon would be proud of what the WSJT-X developers have done.

It must be a dirty virtual slider pot. Get out the virtual contact cleaner George and give it a spray.
