so in other words, make it do what jtdx does??? serching old all texts
become very difficult

I find it easier to just edit with notepad, keep current month or 2 in
all.txt, but cut and paste older info to a renamed all.tx, as in "all
01-01-22 - 06-01-22.txt"

if the lost log entry has a date, I can find which txt file to search

I would recommend an option to duplicate the behavior of one of the

at 00:00z on the first of each month.

Not only does that keep the size of each file generally manageable with
Notebook (no special software), it makes finding a particular callsign
or time period much easier.

After reading some of the responses, I can refine my request to these 3
options in regards to the ALL.TXT file.

1) Write all activity as it currently does today. Manually manage the
file for historical purposes.
2) Write only my calls 'send' and 'receive' activity to the file. File
size would never be an issue based on your own call activity.
3) Don't create or write to this file at all.

Thoughts?

locked Re: Meinberg Error #Timesync

Graham (ZL1CE)
 

Hi all

The following is mostly a quote from a post I made on another group where users had the same issues with D4 & Meinberg

I have successfully used this method on XP, W7, W8 & W10 for many years. Before the internet days (DOS, W3.1, 98 etc ) I used an early version of Dimension 4.(which needed to be manually calibrated against time signals over several weeks) on my customers computers, but the newer versions of D4 no longer seem to play well with my current W10 version (21H2)


Clock Synchronization using Windows built in time synchronisation

Synchronizing the clock of your PC is normally enabled by default except for networked computers that are domain members. Obviously, this synchronization is not possible for PCs that are not connected (whether permanently or not) to the Internet ...

To activate or check that this function is enabled, you must go to Control Panel | Regional Options, Date and Time | Change date and time and click the Internet Time tab.

Synchronization occurs every 604,800 seconds, or every 7 days. You can increase or decrease this time by editing the registry:

Go to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ W32Time \ TimeProviders \ NtpClient

Locate and change the value: SpecialPollInterval

Assign a value in seconds. e.g. 3600 will give you an update interval of 60 minutes or 600 will give an update every 10 minutes etc ...

Restart the PC for the changes to take effect. (Source: MSKB Q297227)

After comment: I am back trialing Meinberg on my new computer (W10 21H2) but my other computers are all using the built in Windows time sync with a 1 hour update interval (3600 in the appropriate registry key). Also tried D4 recently but it seemed to be flaky

That sounds like it was still in Fake It mode if VFOA changed and VFOB did not.
If only VFOA is changing in Rig Split we need to debug that.

Please place this file as described below
https://www.dropbox.com/s/t52ngcalsgnpm8m/wsjtx_log_config.ini?dl=0


    C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\WSJT-X
    The WSJT-X_Rigcontrol.log file will be in the same location
    
For Linux put it in  
    ~/.config
    The WSJT-X_Rigcontrol.log file will be here:
    ~/.local/share/WSJT-X
    
Restart WSJT-X and duplicate the problem.
Shut down WSJT-X


Then send me the WSJT-X_RigControl.log file

Both VFOs went to the selected frequency (18.100)

It seemed to function much in the same way as fake it.

If you can do a "Save As" you can save it directly in \WSJT\WSJTX\bin and replace the libhamlib-4.dll that is there.

It’s part of the (compression, ECC, etc) protocol, changing it is easy but then it’s not FT8 any more.

If you want to reduce VFO swapping with rigctld you have to use the --vfo option.CQRLog is supposed to be supporting that now.https://www.cqrlog.com/node/3383

I see no big difference with --vfo option and cqrlog V.2.6.0. Sometimes, the VFO swapping is on any TX, sometimes not. Anyway, I mostly use Fake It.

For the ARRL International Digital Contest, you probably don't want to use
WW Digi. The default CQ message
is CQ WW. If you use the NA VHF contest module, the default CQ message is
CQ Test. If you fill in your
Grid in the normal grid window, the program will pick it up.
