Does W11 give you any indication of how often it does a time sync?  I believe earlier versions of Windows were by default configured to time-sync once a week, which is far too infrequent if you want the PC clock to maintain a reasonable degree of accuracy, eg. for the FT/JT datamodes.

If you've installed Meinberg on the W11 machine then disabling the WIndows time-sync is definitely the appropriate thing to do.

Interesting!

I wrote an application to control my FT-891, it also connects to an external GPS (if available) and auto computes the grid.    There is an EXT CAT interface that allows me to moderate the data to/from WSJT-X so I could run WSPR, FT8, etc. while still allowing me to make adjustments for power output, filter BW, etc.   Although I have a place holder for a logbook, with ADIF input/output, it isn't active.

I planned to accept UDP data from WSJT-X to auto-fill the logbook for special occasions (like POTA), where I could have one log for digital and voice contacts that would be relatively automated.

So to the real point I was wondering, while driving with WSPR running for about 60 miles or so it all worked great!    EXCEPT, my grid square still showed me at home QTH.    

Is there an API or means of updating the GRID SQUARE in real time available in WSJT-X?

Good idea re a memorial award of some type.

An annual innovation award would be worth consideration as well.  Some hams are more interested in developing new modes and techniques than in contesting.  

I didn’t know Bill other than to speak with him on email a few times in regard to WSJT-X features and bugs, but I suspect he would be more in the innovator group than the contestor group.

Those closer to him could probably provide an appropriate suggestion.

Mind you the W11 time update also allows you to select nist.gov as a source. Not realistic for those of us in Europe.

 

Hi Phil,

At least time sync in W10 allowed to type in any source for time sync. So you should be capable to select an European pool or a local service as well. Once I tested times1.mikes.fi in W10, but never compared the result to Meinberg or GPS.

That’s what I though so I disabled the W11 time update. When W11 installed it installed a lot of other things it thought I would need. I think I’ve got rid of most of the other stuff I don’t need.

You don't want more than one time sync service, as they may fight with each other.

I've written a description of the coding process for the LDPC modes FST4/FST4W, FT8 and MSK144 based on a study of the source code, converting this into code generating routines in an alternative programming language to make sure it gives the same symbol sets

Can someone who understands the innards in depth take a look at this and see if I've made any glaring foobs in there.

My routines work (plain text and telemetry mode only) but something may have got missed while doing the write-up.

To use N1MM with WSJT to manage your logs you need to do just a very few things. 

In WSJT, turn on log broadcasting under reporting. In N1MM, go to the WSJT tab in configure and enable the radio 1 checkbox on the upper left of the screen. Make sure the ports agree, but they should by default.

Tada! You’re done.

You don’t need to wait for a contest to try it out. Just create a log for DX or FTROUNDUP and watch N1MM grab every contact you make.

There’s more complex setups than the above, but that’s the one I use (with a few other pieces of software) and it works flawlessly during RU for Single OP. You don’t have to control your radio via N1MM for WSJT because all of the band information comes through in the log fragment.

Hi Steve
Glad the tips helped - and cheers to Phil about not including the header, second nature when you have done it before but not first time round!

Carl is correct, some Entry Robots will tell you the score when you upload the log but not all. They all work out the score themselves in the adjudication process.

I only operated RU for a few hours and not sending an entry in so only used WSJTX but would use N1MM for a serious entry. Using a contest logger also helps you know if you have worked them before on the same band but different mode which is not so easy with WSJTX on its own even with a fresh ADI file. The N1MM documentation runs through how to set it up thoroughly but enjoy watching You Tube for more guidance and Good Luck.

If I’ve forgotten to tune after changing bands and get a high SWR warning, I will hit the rig’s tune button after finishing say a CQ. This takes less than a second at 14 s in the cycle.

Why would you want to "Tune" during a QSO?  This seems quite reasonable

Potential partial answer.  

Checking "Calling CQ forces Call 1st" in preferences/settings creates the behavior.  

It appears the WSJT-X treats a "Tune" as a CQ.
