locked Fonts in the decode panel #NewUser

Rod Greene <w7zrc@...>
 

Is there any way to change the font and size, etc. of the font in the decode panels?I have searched the Help file document and nothing shows for "font".I'd like to increase the size and make the font bold for easier reading.

TIA and 73, Rod/w7zrc

are you using wsjtx alone, or using it within n1mm

if you have n1mm using cat port, I dont think it shares, but within n1mm
wsjtx may use n1mm cat for itself. I cant remember

Hi Brad,

I use a different solution with the Symbolic links. You just create the main LOG file in a directory you like. You can also use multiple instances of WSJT on one or more computers. Just delete the log in each WSJT directory and replace it with the symbolic link of the main log. You can get more info on how to here: https://community.flexradio.com/discussion/8024639/slicemaster-wsjt-x-instances-jtalert-and-log4om

Today while working the VHF contest using FT8 in version 2.5.3 it crashed as in 2.5.2 when trying to complete a contact with a rover, /R. It did not happen until I transmitted. I did not try other modes as there was no activity where I could attempt a contact using the /. I gave it three tries before reverting to 2.5.1.

locked Re: Can't update Tx2 signal report #QSO_practices

 

One quick thing I noticed, if calling a station and it is multiple times before a reply, you can quickly erase the name of the station on the left side of the program where it says DX Call. Then double click the station again and it changes to the updated signal to noise ratio. I found that trick as well just the other night fooling around. So let's say you call KN4FLO, that is me, but I am replying to someone else. If you see my signal getting stronger or weaker and you know I have at least one more exchange to go, then you can quickly erase my callsign on the left side where it says DX Call. Double click on me again in the listing and it will send the updated signal. But like others have said, there is no telling what signal to noise ratio I will use no matter how you update it. I know in another program I use sometimes, I can double click on the station each time leading up to the exchange and it will show the updated report. Really, it is just about the exchange to me. People can tell me I am in the negative all the time and they are positive it means nothing. As long as the exchange happens, that is all that matters to me. Thanks, KN4FLO, James.

Hi Bob,
That feature is designed on purpose. The most important issue is that some protocols use message stacking i.e. use multiple message for final decoding. That improves sensitivity quite a lot. Another use is especially in contests, when you need to repeat the report message. If you change the report value, then you cannot know which one the other operator actually got and logged.
If you want to send a "final" report, you could sent it as a free text message, say RPT -13 DB 73. Well, you cannot include a call sign into that message.

I recently upgraded WSJT-X from 2.1.2 to 2.5.4. I'm impressed with the faster FT8 decode. But I've noticed a difference in behavior when I call stations with Tx2 rather than Tx1. When calling a station, I like to send the most recent signal report. When starting with Tx2, the signal report I give with 2.5.4 seems to be locked by my first call. If I have to call more than once, in 2.1.2 I could double click on the most recent decode and my Tx2 report would be updated. However, with 2.5.4 double-clicking doesn't update the report I send. I have to artificially double-click on a different station, and then double-click on the original station to refresh my Tx2 report. Maybe there is a setting that I'm overlooking, but otherwise it seems like a bug or disabled feature.

I'm not a daily follower of this forum, so apologies if this issue has already been discussed.

Thanks for the help.

I believe it was changed to the current configuration because if the receiving station decoded your first call he would be confused as to the correct signal report if you changed it mid QSO. Anyway, your number is YOUR signal to noise reading of his signal, not a signal strength reading of the other station.

Open a cmd prompt as administrator and do this
mklink \Users\[username]\AppData\Local\WSJT-X\wsjtx_log.adi \Users\[username]\Onedrive\wsjtx_log.adi
Of course you can put in whatever Onedrive path you want.
This makes what is called a "hard link" so the file actually exists in both places.

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.

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
