Hi Dave,

The QSO time is defined from the time you started message sequence that ended with 73 with the same station for a minimum call. In the first two examples you stopped and restarted the automatic message sequence by sending  a new call initiation message  Tx1 “call call QRA”. The automation seems to get confused as the first message you got after that is “R-19” not “-19” and records only the 73 logging time. I don’t know whether that behavior is intended in that way or not.

In any case relevant is that you started a new call in the middle of message sequence! That’s of course an opinion of automata, you may think differently. The automata simply forgets what you have received or sent before sending a Tx1 “call call QRA” message. The same happens, if you send as the first message a Tx2 “call call report”, I assume.

[Edited Message Follows]

Hello,

I have had QSO's which take a number of cycles, even up up to 8 mins

The QSO Start & End Times seem to correctly reflect 1st report till the 73

However I have just had a couple where the QSO Start & End Times are the same time, the 73 cycle.

See attached screen shots. First 2 exhibit Start/End the same, last 2 correct

Thanks... Dave

If receiving a very strong local wspr signal it often decodes as a main signal plus several harmonics at +/-100hz on 50MHz and 70MHz. On 2m they seem to be +/-50MHz. 


does anyone know what is causing these? Are they artefacts of the transmitted signal, or are they created in the sound card? Also, why is it exactly 100hz?

just curious.

Hi Bill,

It depends how you delete the older version. The defaults or settings are in that application data directory you go with “Open log directory” or directly as state in the User Guide 15.1. File locations for Windows, I assume you use it:

·         Settings: %LOCALAPPDATA%\WSJT-X\WSJT-X.ini

·         Log directory: %LOCALAPPDATA%\WSJT-X\

You may remove program using Windows program removal tool. It would not remove the application data information especially WSJT-X.INI file.

I was have a problem with the current latest version 2.2 of WSJT-X where the TX function only worked intermittently and not at all reliable.
I checked everything and no remedy.
I use WSJTX and LOG4OM working together for rig control and logging.
In desperation I downloaded the new test release version 2.3.0-rc2 4c05f8 6/01/21
This solved the issue completely - so I just wanted to let you know and hope that whatever that was changed in the program can be incorporated the future release. Unfortunately this is set to expire and become non operation tomorrow 19/01/21
If you need any further information, please let me know

PSK Reporter. There are no settings I can see in WSJTX

A million or more spots go to WSPRnet each day.
Most WSPRnet users do not want to fragment the data. Quite a few regard it as a valuable propagation database.

WSPRnet has always been used. There has never been any need to make that clear, there was no alternative. Fairly recently some users must have persuaded PSK reporter to accommodate WSPR. This is not official, personally I hope it never is.

Ken,

open a CMD prompt window and type this:

echo %Path%

the list of directories printed are the places Windows looks to find an executable to run when passed a command name without a path.

WSJT-X executes the user_hardware executable by invoking the following command:

CMD /C user_hardware nn

where 'nn'  is the target band in meters without a trailing 'm'.

The other piece of the puzzle is what Windows considers as an executable, that is determined by the list of file extensions stored in the PATHEXT environment variable, which you can see by typing this:

echo %PATHEXT%

You will observe that .BAT is one of the file extensions considered to be executable.

This is all standard Windows behaviour documented in many places.

Austin,
Bill already told that WSJT-X don’t send WSPR nor FST4W reports to PSK Reporter and that selection does not affect to WSPR nor FST4W at all.

There is on the main pages of those modes a user selection “Upload spots” to activate sending spots to WSPRnet. It is the only “official” and original destination of WSPR spots and there has not been any reason to write that on the main window of those modes. If you are interested in WSPR “history”, you look into https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/WSPR_2.0_User.pdf

If you go on PSK reporter, a handful of WSPR spots can be seen. Does anyone know why this is? Why are some reporting to PSK Reporter but most report to WSPRnet. What is different about their setup. (I know WSPRnet is the proper place). I'm just curious as to how some but not all stations are reporting to PSK Reporter. There are no settings I can see in WSJTX

WSJT-X does not send WSPR spots to PSK Reporter. WSJT-X is not the only application that decodes WSPR traffic.

Hi Bill,
I modified my batch file as your instructions for 40m and 80m and put in the correct commands for my QCX and renamed the file as 'user_hardware.bat'.
I have tried placing this file in all locations from C:/ through to wsjt paths to /bin, but all no no effect.

I am bandhopping 40m and 80m, and although my QCX radio is changing to the correct frequency by CAT control, this user_hardware file still does not seem to do anything.
Here is a copy of my batch file now (called user_hardware.bat);

 @ECHO OFF
IF "%1"=="40" (
  SerialSend "QM6.010;"
) ELSE IF "%1"=="80" (
  SerialSend "QM6.012;"

Ken,

the way WSJT-X now works means that it runs the user_hardware.bat file exactly the same way that any other executable file is run. For MS Windows that means the file must be located in either in one of the directories listed on the PATH environment variable or in the current working directory when WSJT-X is started.
