Hi All, was wondering if there is a way to change the directory of the wsjt-x_log.adi file.
I want to store it on my cloud drive so that it can be accessed if I use a different computer.

Right now the best I can do is automatically create a daily backup to the cloud drive.. which could work but I would have to remember to load the cloud adi file

when switching back and forth between computers.

It would be nice to have the .adi file stored where multiple machines can access it.

Someone must have run into this before me. I'm a newbie at this.

Get yourself a solar panel, portable foldup or otherwise along with the charge controller which is a small item and use that to keep things charged up.  Whole package could weigh less than a couple lbs at most.  Battery and radio is where most of the weight is.  No inverter necessary if your running the radio from the 12V battery.

How does WSJT-X create the .adi file? If I edit the .log file for errors,
will the adi file get corrected? Do I have to edit both the log file and the
adi file when finding an error?
Hello Don, as far as I'm aware it's only the .ADI file that's important, so there's probably no need at all to make any changes to the .LOG file after you've made corrections to the .ADI file.

I think I recall someone (probably the late and much-missed G4WJS) stating that the .LOG file, which seems to be in CSV format, is only a transaction record of what WSJT-X has logged whereas the .ADI file is the log itself that can be uploaded to LoTW etc and is used to identify previously-worked stations. I've certainly never, ever made any changes to my .LOG file whereas I fairly often edit the .ADI file, for example to add or correct grid squares.

Hope that helps,

Hi Randy,

A number of times I have operated as JW4LN from Svalbard, in the summer wilderness of the Arctic.

I brought a ~50 Ampère-hours 12 Volt sealed battery, plus two solar panels (each ~30 inches).
The solar panels were connected to the battery at all times, and even charged the battery when the sky was completely clouded. It’s of course beneficial that Arctic has daylight all day and night during summer. And the solar panels were charging the battery even when the sky was covered by clouds.

This «power supply» was powering my Icom IC-706Mk2 transceiver (with 100 W output power) plus a lap-top PC, running RTTY and PSK31 and AMTOR digital modes (this was before the WSJT-X and FT-8 era).

With this «self-charging» system thousands of QSOs were made from the wilderness of the Arctic during several summers.

This power system has also been used powering a portable VHF repeater for two weeks in Norway, charging only during daylight, with a transmitting power of ~15 Watts. No problem, and with no need for external electrical power.

During my first JW4LN expedition to Svalbard in the Arctic in 1971 a gasoline aggregate was used for electric power for a Yaesu FTdx400 transceiver (called Sommerkamp FTdx500 in Europe) with radio tubes in its transmitter, but my radio activities stopped when we ran out of gasoline fuel. So the battery plus solar panel power supply, which became available many years later, was much better, and only needed daylight.

73 and good luck from Tom (LA4LN / JW4LN)

Buy a lithium-ion battery such as the Jackery 1000 or 1500. That can run a
laptop for quite a while without recharge. You can recharge it from your
car, if needed.

With that very limited information I propose that you check your Mac time although it should be accurate enough, if I know Mac at all. Net page time.is gives time error value. Time should be within +/-2 s for any decoding and within +/-1 s for working.

Hi Zac,

What have you selected as audio output in "Settings => Audio"?
What options do you see in that dropdown list?

Hi Karza!!

Thank you so much for replying!!

I found the ini file in ./config and deleted it. I restarted WSJT-X and I plugged in the sound from the radio and nothing happened. I checked File->Settings ->Audio and noticed the drop down selections for Soundcard Inputs and Outputs were blank so I selected "default" for both. At this point, I think I got something on the audio level bar but it was not decoding anything. Then I switched the Mode from JT9 to FT8 and then adjusted the "Microphone" volume level slider in Ubuntu 20.04 upper right until the wsjtx sound level meter was around "60".

At this point stations started pouring in like mad! Big smile!
But unfortunately, as it always does, the minute I click on "Tune" it crashes.
