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

Hello Charlie,

OK, that is what I thought, but wondered if things had been updated since the help file was created.

Oh well, it is not a big deal, but would have been nice.

Hi all,

We are now using the special event call of GB70U from Guernsey, and when I
set the callsign to GB70U, the grid is not transmitted at all.
Even if I sent Tx5 to send CQ GB70U IN89, it still only send CQ GB70U.

Is there a way to get the grid sent?

It would be useful for us to be able to send the grid, so that PSKReporter

On a separate note, since my HF station is down I’ve been using the Remote Hams client which is Windows based and uses K4 CAT commands…I did install the new .dll in my Windows WSJT-X 2.5.4 and ran it this morning. Fake it works fine. Will test rig if i have a chance this evening or tomorrow morning.

Follow up: I don’t normally use rig split so I’m going to describe what took place:

Changed from fake it to rig on the Settings> Radio tab.

Both VFOs went to the selected frequency (18.100)

When I transmitted, VFO A went to 18.101 (my audio freq was 2600). VFO B remained at 18.100.

Once the transmit cycle ended, VFO A went back to 18.100.

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

Let me know if you need anything further.

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.

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

Mike W9MDB

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.

Hello,

I can not get the "S+P" function to work in FT4. I select the "Colors" tab in "Settings", and then check only the "CQ in message" (bright green ), and drag it to the top. Then I click the "S+P" button (turns red), but the software does not then transmit when the next person that calls CQ is decoded. What am I missing?
Thank you for your help.

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.

Hi Mike, I'm running WSJT-X v2.5.4 on a 64-bit WIn 10 PC; the rig is an IC-7610 and the PC-to-rig connection for WSJT-X's CAT is CI-V using a USB-to-CI-V adaptor.

I haven't tried Rig Split with the latest Hamlib but Fake It (which is what I always use) works without any observable issues or errors, but there again the version of Hamlib included in the WSJT-X v2.5.4 distro also worked without any apparent problems.

HTH,
