completely false from my observation.  You do not even have to have the waterfall on to decode signals.  Not quite sure what you are doing there.

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.

I seem to recall that V2.1.2 has a tighter time accuracy requirement.   Although I would think a time error would apply across the audio spectrum.   You may be "hearing" signals but what does the WSJT-X level indicator on the left show?   It should be consistent across the frequency spectrum.  Re-check all cables to assure they are firmly and correctly seated.

I thought about the rig's filters too - but I'm still hearing the audio of the strong signals above 1100Hz on the waterfall, and nothing has changed on my rig settings since yesterday when I was decoding everything perfectly on v2.0.  The only change in the system has been moving from v2.0 to v2.1.2.

We (the contest committee) are looking for photos from anyone who took part
in the inaugural World Wide Digi DX Contest that took place in August 2019.
We are mainly looking for photos of you or your team (if you were multi-op)
located in the shack or in the case of multi-op, it doesn't have to be in
the shack.

A few photos will be included in the results article that will be posted on
the WW Digi DX Contest website soon.

Please send any photos directly to me aa5au@...

Thank you!

locked Re: TU; messages in RTTY RU

Reino Talarmo
 

Steve,
I agree that generally your cannot be absolutely sure, if no 73 to your RR73. On the other hand, if you see (decode) all messages from that station to whom you sent RR73 and there is no sending or especially a CQ from that station in the next timeslot, then he is following the 'Rule' that you have logged the QSO and there is no need to resent R... The TU; would be fine in that situation. I got a feeling that it is generated, if you have logged the previous call before your start to send a reply to somebody else. The use of automatic logging may be very relevant in that respect.

I noted that you should not reply to somebody else before logging the previous QSO as that seems to generate the answer using the same serial number as the not yet logged QSO.

Of course situation is less clear, if he is replying to somebody else in the next timeslot (without TU;...) especially when there has been already some repetitions or you don't decode that message. If it is question of an important (rare) multiplier, then you may choose to spend potentially many additional timeslots to get a 73 back. You may try RRR instead as that should tell a not yet logged situation.

73, Reino oh3mA


locked Re: TU; messages in RTTY RU

Steve Kavanagh
 

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.

Steve VE3SMA

Tom,

 

WSJT-X decodes only frequencies that are shown on the Waterfall. The feature may be used to kill unwanted stations or make decoding faster for the wanted stations.

Tom Read
 

Solved it!  It was a stupid thing.

i just needed to drag the waterfall window out to its full width.  The radio could hear the signals, but if they weren’t in the waterfall, WSJT ignored them for decoding!

I’m not sure if 2.0 did this - never come across it before anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions - the one to inspect the waterfall was the one to unlock the mystery!


locked Re: TU; messages in RTTY RU

Reino Talarmo
 

Hi Jim,
On the other hand Joe has defined that sending an RR73 means that the QSO is
logged.
It also means 'I am not expecting any more messages from you, except a
repetition of your previous R...., if you did not received my RR73'.
Taking that into account the sending of 73 is not mandatory especially in a
contest and many serious contesters never sent it in RTTY RU.
73, Reino oh3mA

after sending RR73 several times one is never sure if the other station got
the last one or just went off to make other contacts .... however, a few
compassionate ops were nice to send back a 73 when they
finally got my RR73, which I appreciated.

Ahh, yeah - I thought of Fox mode, but that only decodes messages
directed to your callsign ... but I forgot that there's also a "Rx All
Freqs" option in Hound mode - disabling that would cause the symptom

Interesting. My problem is worse. I am decoding everything, even very weak. Nobody seems to decode me on 40 and 30 when I decode weaker than say - 16 or so. I guess I need a better antenna {not possible here unless I win the lottery) or to turn on the linear 😊

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.
