Especially yesterday and today, I've been having a rather strange happening
... more often than just occaisionally ... like maybe 40% of the time ...

I will answer a station with a nice signal, they will come back and give me
a reasonably good report (like -3db, even +1db) and I send them back my
report ...
then two, sometimes three cycles go by with them not even showing on the
waterfall -- then suddenly they will come back with their RR73 ...

I don't know if 40% have rig problems just as I call them (hmmm), or if they
didn't copy my report (even though they gave me a good report), or if they
are having the "missed decode cycle" problems we see discussed here.

Because 40% seems like more than 'occaisional' I'm mentioning it here.

The "Test CAT" and "Test PTT" work ok, MLDX and the radio connect ok, I am getting the receive decodes ok.
When I try the "Tune" button, current to the radio increases but I am not getting any output, no modulation.
What is the transmit tone frequency? If it is higher or lower than the edges of your transmit filter, your symptoms will be seen.

I would have to agree.

D4 may be easier in the initial but it hard steps your clock which is not ideal.

I’ve installed meinberg on every pc without issue. It’s really just a standard NTP distribution ported to windows. It’s the standard time sync software used on nearly every unix server out there and far superior. 

I’ve found that the defaults work for me.

I got Meinberg to work on my old desktop last year and all went well and still is. However, when I tried to get it to work on a newer desktop, I gave up after a lot of screwing around and gave Dimension 4 a try. It was SO EASY and worked the first time I tried.

I’m sure it won’t hold and my decoding and inability to make contacts will return. Any help out there? Sorry if this is a repeat, but the long rants have made my head spin.

locked Problem When Changing Bands with WSJT-X

Richard C. Bernhardt
 

I have a setup using my Kenwood TS-570D, Signalink USB, WIndows 7 64-bit and the latest WSJT-X software.

It looks to me like everything is working fine with FT8, except when I try to change
the band I'm using. If I use the WSJT-X band selector, it seems to respond with the
new band, including the radio following along.

BUT-- on the new band there's no
traffic at all, i.e., no observable transmissions being decoded. However, if I shut down
(quit) WSJT-X, and then restart it, everything appears to be normal with my seeing
lots of band activity again.

What could be going on? Is there something wrong?

Rich, K4OFS

Virginia QSO party coming up this weekend, and FT8 is not disallowed. The exchange is your QTH (either 3 letter Virginia city/county abbreviation, or 2 letter state abbreviation, or DX, and serial number. Setup | Advanced | offers three potential options, but only the EU VHF contest has serial number generation. Suggestions?


locked Problem Changing Bands

Richard C. Bernhardt
 

I recently installed the latest version of WSJT-X, configured it, and started using it on FT8.

The problem I have is with switching bands. When I do (for example switching from 20m to 15m), my transceiver
(Kenwood TS-570D) follows along fine. Except  I no longer see any transmissions or any traffic being decoded and shown, and no indication
or movement of the signal strength indicator on the lower left. It just sits at zero.

If I exit WSJT-X, and bring it up again, things seem to then work properly on the new band

What could be the problem?

Rich, K4OFS

Started Wsjtx this morning and a signal appeared in the waterfall s9+  and not able to decode much, nothing in vicinity of signal.
Checked and nothing on my radios waterfall.  Started js8 and checked that portion of the band and nothing.
I restarted my computer and checked again and its still there and constant.

I looked for spurious emissions and found nothing.    It seems to be in the software or in between not from outside.  Been running this for months and never had it happen before.

I can't help you much if you don't share what isn't working for you, other than agreeing that for many user SNTP clients line Dimension4 do not provide a stable enough clock for reliable WSJT-X usage. Have you read this document:

Before others start flaming me for saying SNTP clients like Dimension4 work fine for them and I am talking rubbish, please be aware that sometimes an apparently stable clock is not what it appears and short term variations between SNTP synchronizations are likely to be detrimental to decoder performance. If you have a PC with a stable real-time clock chip, properly installed SNTP client, and the Windows Network Time Client disabled (be warned this can change without your input!); then you will be fine but not all hardware has a stable enough real-time clock chip and need continuous monitoring and adjustment as provided by a full NTP implementation.

Are you sure that you don’t have the transmit monitor turned on in your transceiver? The SignaLink-USB has no speaker to make audio sounds. It only sends tones to the transceiver via the connecting wires. Are the tones possibly coming from your computer speakers? Your WSJT-x setting should have transmit audio sent only to the USB Codex (i.e. the SignaLink), not to the default audio device or speakers.

On the TS590S, if hold the PWR button down for more than one second, you will see the TX monitor volume. If its anywhere above 0 you will hear what you are transmitting. The volume control has no affect on it.

The sounds are heard with the 590S’s volume turned all the way down and the remote speaker disconnected.

Are you sure that you don’t have the transmit monitor turned on in your transceiver? The SignaLink-USB has no speaker to make audio sounds. It only sends tones to the transceiver via the connecting wires. Are the tones possibly coming from your computer speakers? Your WSJT-x setting should have transmit audio sent only to the USB Codex (i.e. the SignaLink), not to the default audio device or speakers.

I have the latest version of WSJT-X and WSJT Alert installed on my computer HP (Laptop Win7 with 8 GB Ram).
 
I connect to my TS 590S with a Signalink USB interface.
 
Whenever I am transmitting FT8 the Signalink amplifies the tones that is annoying. I am told by others that they
don’t have this problem.
 
How can I eliminate this loud transmit noise?
