I would support this, specially for LoTW and paper. Also it would be nice if the calculated will be taken in the WSJT log file together with the QSO information.

If you use N1MM in SO2R you can load 2 separate instances of WSJT one for each entry window. This does what you are asking..

locked call for RTTY Roundup photos and stories

I write the results article for the RTTY Roundup in QST. 

Please send me any high resolution photos you may have of your RTTY Roundup operation, station, etc. Note that the QST editors tend to prefer photos that have people in them but not exclusively. 

Also if you have any stories or observations that you didn't already post to 3830scores.com or include in your soapbox, please send those along as well.

Best way is to reply to this message, or in a separate message with something like "Roundup article" in the subject line :)

Thanks! jeff wk6i

I ran as many as three instances at one time. 2 on HF and one on 6 meters.

Besides WSJTX supporting it — and only one install is required the code is re-entrant — each instance just needs to be named. No multiple installs required. JTAlert also needs the instances named.

Checkout WSJT-X User Guide FAQ on multiple instances. 16.2 in the FAQ.

And in the support@...:


Then read up on SO2R regarding two HF rigs and one antenna — a HF mux and band pass filters.  SO2R stands for single operator 2 radios.

Good luck!

I believe you have summarized the situation correctly - thanks for the better explanation.  Mind you, if WSJT-X can incorporate a "TU" in a CQ message after a QSO with repeats, it might as well be there for a minimum-cycles QSO as well, in my opinion.

There is always potentially some ambiguity along the lines of your last paragraph, even on CW or phone, although, as you say, the timing clues on those modes help a lot for an experienced operator.

To be honest, it was probably something I was doing wrong or poorly.  Just like some people love Fords and others love Chevys, I guess I’m more inclined to figure out Icoms.  The Yaesu was great on voice, I just didn’t enjoy digital modes on it, and digi is 90% of what I do.

Louis,

you are incorrect, you could verify that by a simple test. The visibility of the Wide Graph window is not relevant here but the frequency span set on it is absolutely relevant. WSJT-X only looks for candidate signals to decode within the current frequency range of the Wide Graph display.

locked Re: TU; messages in RTTY RU

ve3ki
 

Actually, Steve, I think it's a bit more subtle than that. To me, it depends on whether there have been any repeats during the QSO.

If the QSO goes:
CQ RU VE3SMA
VE3SMA VE3KI 599 ON
VE3KI VE3SMA R 599 ON
VE3SMA VE3KI RR73
CQ RU VE3SMA
that seems clear enough to me. If you had not copied my RR73, you would have sent your exchange again, so the fact that you did not repeat your exchange tells me that you are happy with the QSO and have logged it.

However, simple QSOs with no repeats like the above one often don't happen in congested contest conditions. If the QSO has gone:
CQ RU VE3SMA
VE3SMA VE3KI 559 ON
VE3KI VE3SMA R 559 ON
VE3SMA VE3KI 559 ON (meaning I haven't received your exchange yet)
VE3KI VE3SMA R 559 ON
VE3SMA VE3KI RR73
CQ RU VE3SMA, or OH3MA VE3SMA 559 ON
that's not so clear to me. Did you receive my RR73, log the contact, and now are you moving on, or did you fail to receive my RR73 and have you decided to give up and move on without logging the contact and without trying again? How many tries are enough before giving up?

If I have understood correctly, the program provides for a distinction in the second case above, with the TU; OH3MA VE3SMA 559 ON variant message. What seems to be missing is an equivalent for the CQ message, as in TU; CQ RU VE3SMA. Maybe that's already there in the program?? If so, I never saw such a message, not that I was on for very long, so I might have missed it.

There is still some ambiguity if the S&Ping station does not receive and decode the TU; ... message, but it's not possible to remove all ambiguity in all possible sequences without rigid rules about the number of retries. In traditional modes, there are often clues (partial decodes, for example), but in a fixed-length all-or-nothing digital mode, those clues are not there, so either you make the entire process longer in order to reduce the ambiguity, or you decide to live with the ambiguity (and the resulting high busted QSO rate) in the interest of speed.

Rich VE3KI

That's true Reino.  A QSL is valid without the final acknowledgement, since callsigns and some additional information have been confirmed by that point.  But you can't be sure until you receive a QSL card or equivalent.  Indeed, I have received many QSLs on LOTW now from the RTTY RU for QSOs with the minimum information exchange as you mentioned.

However, in a contest, you need to be able to know (almost) for sure if you have worked someone or if you should call them again later to ensure you get the points/multiplier.  WSJT-X contest modes do not yet meet that requirement in the standard sequence, with this rare exception of the TU; messages.

Up to yesterday, everything worked perfectly on v2.0. The only thing that has changed in my set up is the update to v2.1.2. Any ideas?

HI Tom,

your subject line is confusing, I will assume you meant "2.1.2 not decoding "high" frequencies". The issue sounds like a problem with your rig's Rx filter settings.

John,

You can select Configurations > Default > Clone and create another radio by changing the clones setting to what you need. I do this for my Kenwood TS-590S and my TS-590SG and can toggle between the two by going to Configurations and selecting the radio that I want. Thus I don't have to run a second wsjt-x.
