Are you talking about the stations worked before that WSJT-X gives you?

I see you mentioned that you did a clean install of WSJT-X etc., but you don’t mention copying the logs and other such files from your old computer to your new one… or do I misunderstand your situation?

Hi Steve,

no manipulation of your ADIF log file should be required, the format is flexible with unused fields ignored and the order of fields in each record is irrelevant.

99% of the time the report I receive is about 10db lower than the report I send to the other station.

Is this just because of the higher noise level at the other stations QTH, or is it because of my 40w power level or antenna,

a quiet rural area could easily have a 10 dB lower noise floor than that suffered by many stations.

Hi Rob,

It will be a combination of both the difference between stations' TX ability, ie the other station is running more power, has a better aerial, etc and the RX ability, lower noise floor. After all the report is a signal-to-noise ratio.

You must have had weak or fading signals when you were frequency hopping. Did you see an asterisks  (*) at the end of any line of data you were capturing? 

Are you using Windows defender for your virus protection? 

You may need to put your top level wsjt directory in an exclusion with your antivirus settings. 

I would not advance to saving data with the measure box until you see real clean data from the prior step. Depending on time of day you may have to delete a freq in the FreqCal list, like 2.5 or 5 MHz during high local noon.

I have been enjoying FT8 for a few months now, but have a question about my signal reports.

99% of the time the report I receive is about 10db lower than the report I send to the other station.

Is this just because of the higher noise level at the other stations QTH, or is it because of my 40w power level or antenna,
maybe I'm looking at it the wrong way?

I live in a very low noise level area (S1-S3)

I would try checking the event logs in the OS. There could be events (warnings and errors) posted there  that may help point to the exact issue causing the problem. 

Check event logs under System and Application branches.

My 2 cents worth. Hope it proves useful. It can be a great troubleshooting tool.

Thanks for the feedback.  After experimenting further last night I found that after my graphics driver update the problem returned, so I ran a minimal test overnight with just 2x WSJT + 2x JTAlert + WinGrid to check status.  After close to 10 hours the problem has NOT reappeared.  I just added DX4WIN to the mix and we'll check later today.

I've wavered back and forth on whether this is a Chrome/RAM issue.  I have significant amounts of Available RAM which led me to believe I'm ok when Chrome is up and running, but there does seem to be a Chrome dependence here.

I have a RAM upgrade on the way and will tinker with Chrome settings per your suggestions below.  (I may also try Firefox).

Hi Jim, you seem to have a pretty decent system there (although running 2 x WSJT-X and 2 x JTAlert will no doubt keep it fairly busy!) but have you tried closing the Chrome browser and seeing if that makes any difference to the occurrence of the droputs?

My reason for suggesting this is that I've recently discovered that on my Win 7 Pro system (with a much less potent CPU than yours and with only 4G of RAM) having Firefox (68.7.0 ESR) running, albeit minimised, with seven active tabs was really consuming memory, almost as though over a period of time there was a 'memory leakage' problem.

I've now tweaked the Firefox configuration so that it's only allowed to use 256M of RAM for its cache and I've also limited its number of 'content processes' to 1 (the default is 8).  These tweaks haven't altered the usability of the browser to any noticeable extent but have have definitely resulted in an improvement in the amount of memory available for WSJT-X and the other apps I run concurrently to the extent that now (according to Task Manager) my system never seems to use all the available memory or run with maximum CPU usage.

If you find that closing the Chrome browser does have a beneficial effect on the dropouts then you might be able to tweak its configuration in the same way as I've done for Firefox - I don't know Chrome at all so I can't offer any suggestions about how to change its cache size or its number of content processes.

Jamie,

Here are the detailed instructions I wrote to help people with FreqCal in WSJT-X

Just a thought. What resolution will the CAT software commands for the IC-7610 allow the radio to be tuned to? Is the software restricting the tuning rate of the radio? Can you tune a smaller frequency resolution with the radio controls than you can with the software? Just a SWAG....

also , make sure the comport is not already in use by whatever other software you are running, like a logging software.

go into device manager ports and right click then properties then advanced and you can change its number.
if the number you want says its in use just use it anyway if you are not useing anything else connected..

I exported all ft8/ft4/etc files to an adif, then used adif master to confirm it was ok.    saved the finished copy into the wsjt local folder, as the required file name.   and it helped

As I was reloading WSJTX I discovered that the logfile was gone. I was able to get WSJTX to read my log and it shows stations I have worked before. 

Is there a way or is it possible to reload the adi file from my HRD log into the WSJTX log file so that the worked before stations will show on WSJTX? I think I could paste the log adi but I know I dont need all the data entries from the ADIF.
Can one only the data entries needed for the WSJTX log file?

locked Loss of Waterfall and Decoding after several minutes operating???

Gary Gadwa
 

This Issue is driving me crazy. I'm running Signal Link USB and a Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V. Have both a Dell Win 10 Laptop and a Dell Desktop. Running WSJT-X with the latest version software. I'll be running along making contacts for say 15 minutes and all of a sudden the Waterfall goes blank of signals. and obviously no decoding. Software and Transceiver will still Transmit fine. The waterfall displays a vertical line at 1000 and at 2000 and nothing else. I have tried different cables. Nothing works. Come back a day later and Waterfall and Decoding are back fine. The Audio Codec settings appear fine with no changes to them. I am at a loss!?!?!

I do have CAT.....it changed the freq to 2.495 (I Think, it was offset a bit from 2500).....and then it stayed there.....I stopped it after a few minutes, then thought maybe it wants to run longer than that, so I did it again...it stayed on 2.500 for 30 minutes or so, never did switch to 3.300 (next freq in table)

You have t have CAT control working properly for all I wrote about in those instructions, That is why, when you asked "What mode", it made no sense. WSJT-X in FreqCal mode sets the sideband and the offset automatically with CAT.

I assumed all along you had working CAT?

Hasan, it doesnt seem to be changing freq, I have all the WWV freqs in the table, it starts at 2.5 mhz, and stays there.....
