Bob,

 

If you reenable TX after sending RR73, the program should recognise that the QSO partner repeated R+rpt and so send RR73 again. At least it does for me.

Hello WSJT-X List

 

So, these past few days, 12m has been SUPER into EU, Balkans,Adriatic, Southern Med.

 

Many many times, the other chap hasn't been able to decode my RR73.

So She/He keeps sending R-11, for example. Over and over.

 

By MY program KEEPS REVERTING TO TX6 (CQ).

 

I have to try and try to reclaim TX4.

Occasionally I see I didn't and I am sending CQ again.

 

So I wonder how many Not-Worked-DXCC entities I have missed these last few days because they, understandably, move on to others that they are decoding.

 

It "should" be understood that,  both this side of the Atlantic and the other, my signal outgoing is from time to time stepped on ??

 

If so, the program should KEEP my "TX##" just where I want it, not keep moving it to CQ ...which I sure as heck don't want to do ??

 

Yeh, i have "Disable Tx after 73" DISABLED.

Bob,

if your QSO partners are regularly not copying your RR73 messages then you shouldn't be sending RR73 in the first place. Double-click the Tx 4 message to switch it to the RRR format message and the QSOs will proceed as you wish.

I think you have missed the point here, the software does it’s own thing regardless, no interference needed.
The issue is that some stations who are not using the ‘Hold Frequency’ feature call the CQ station on their frequency, complete the QSO, and then proceed to call CQ themselves on that frequency instead of moving off.

There is nothing wrong with responding to a CQ station on their frequency so long as you remember to QSY when the QSO is over. If ‘Hold Frequency’ is set you don’t need to.

On phone you wouldn’t start calling CQ on the frequency already held by a station when your QSO is over.

I set my WSJT-X software for FAKE IT or SPLIT to control the K3S radio.  It really makes no difference in my case.   When I answer a CQ, I double click on the calling station and let the software do the rest.    When I call CQ, I choose what I see as a clear frequency on my waterfall and call.    When a station calls me, maybe on my frequency or a different frequency, again I let the software do the rest.    When I choose to use Hold TX Freq that is done when the band is crowded and I find a clear frequency on my receiving end.    

Frankly, I don't see that any of these methods is a massive benefit or a hindrance.   It is just an enjoyable hobby and working stations on FT-8 or FT-4 is more like shooting birds in a cage.  So easy.

OK, after fighting this for days, I finally grabbed a ferrite and wrapped my USB cable (never had an issue with this cable with previous setups) just in case this was an RFI issue:

https://wsjtx.groups.io/g/main/topic/69952737

Absolutely no effect whatsoever.  Continual sound input error dialogs. The Microphone privacy switch is not an issue as I posted earlier.

So, I set up an elderly Toshiba Satellite running Windows 7, hooked it up with the same cable same driver, same software, same place in the shack, and it's been running for 7 hours w/o a hitch.

The computer is a brand-new Asus VivoBook 17 K712EA, and I never dreamed that I would have any issues with it. I've got a limited amount of time to return it.  I'd really appreciate feedback.

Hi JJ,

your expectations should not be any different from the examples given in the WSJT-X User Guide:

https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx-doc/wsjtx-main-2.5.0.html#_standard_exchange

You can always send a courtesy 73 or free text message after a QSO is done by selecting the Tx5 message, or entering a free text message there up to 13 characters, and pressing the "Enable Tx" button.

Yeah, I jumped through all the RealTek hoops;  disabled the rt devices in device manager, disabled driver updates, even booted into safe mode and moved the rt drivers out of the way.  Bill says that the RtkIntU642.dll is not likely to be related, so I guess that was a red herring.

All the privacy options are checked.
I guess we are all waiting for some genius to answer!
The error seems to involve the RealTek audio device. But that should not be seen if it is disabled. In any case it has nothing to do with your setup.

Have you tried uninstalling it? Even delete drivers, stop it re-installing.

I did have trouble with Windows "updating" my Realtek but that just stopped it working properly. I got drivers from Realtek and all was restored.

 Not every caller seems to answer replies on my original tx freq.  even though they saw me on freq A, they only reply when I reply on their freq B.

It looks like the caller in question has a large drift - ~1 Hz/minute.

May I ask those responding to a CQ who are moving to the caller’s frequency to then QSY when QSO is completed. It is best to keep your transmit frequency selected to avoid this. It is unnecessary to move to the CQers frequency.

I tend to lock the tx frequency and then fake the split I do not operate on the callers frequency, using the waterfall display to help, like anytime in radio listen listen and listen again so your on as far as you can tell a less busy frequency.

Hi John,

yes that is the correct location, assuming the WSJT-X directory it self is in the right location. As Reino states, an easy way to locate the right location is to use WSJT-X, "Menu->File->Open log directory" will open a new Finder window located in the correct place.

Hi John,

As Bill told they should not be in the save directory, but in the same directory where the save directory is, see User Guide ‘15.1. File locations’ that states Log directory: %LOCALAPPDATA%\WSJT-X\

An easy way to go there is via menu File – Open log directory

locked Re: WSJT-X feature request : filter field #EnhancementReqest

Hi Roger,

Your proposal works, but there are three issues to make it less useful for the proposed feature:

-        decoding attempt is first tried on the green goalpost, but if the first decoding round fails on that station, then the message will be in an undefined position

-        DX station may move to another frequency at any time

-        all messages from that station will be presented, not only CQ and perhaps RR73 or 73.

Some external program would be nice, but e.g. JTAlert works only in Windows.

By the way, this was only an observation. I am not supporting this kind of addition into the wsjt-x program itself.

73, Reino OH3mA

 

Hi Jeff,

You may not have noticed this but the station on the top of the decode list is the station in the green RX maker on the waterfall display.

So if Im understanding your question this would do what you want.

Simply place the green RX maker over where the DX is and you can simply click on the station to do this.

Then all the communications from that station will be the first listing each period.
