The use of the Vedic card is important not because of the ports but rather it sucks up a lot of your CPU you need to process decodes and JTAlert or CWSkimmer if you use that.

If you have a 4K monitor even the more important.

Windows 10 and 11 work well. The problem with Linux is that there are a lot of other ham radio programs that do not work on it... There is a whole lot more ham radio software for windows...

Laptops or desktops should be able to use dual monitors, which will allow you to have the 'big picture' with multiple windows open. They should have at least 3 usb ports for radio connections & accessories, and 2 hdmi ports for monitors.

But you shouldn’t turn it off just because you see him answering someone else.

If someone moves to my transmit frequency, I’m gone, moved to another clear one. I will not work them simplex unless they slip in a call simplex and I don’t notice! :-)

That doesn't make sense.  Are you on Linux too?
The slider in WSJT-X controls the audio level -- and not the rig power.  Increasing the slider increases the audio level (unless there's a bug in the Qt library reversing the slider or the audio device).
Here's some methods for recording the audio -- if you run this and drag the slider from bottom to top and look at the audio file you SHOULD see an increasing signal.  If you don't then this is a Qt bug or an audio device bug.

I'm also interested about the G90 entry not working in WSJST-X -- it's in beta status but I'd like to work with somebody testing it -- volunteers?

Newbie question: is it possible to start the software without the automatic oppening of the Wide Graph (watterfall) window? If possible, is there a command line option to make this ?
Thank you very much for the help !
No, that is not possible. You have to bother with that one mouse click if you do not want to see Wide Graph.

BTW, why would you want such an option? The Wide Graph is extremely useful for checking what the wibe on the band is and it also helps you to choose clear [at your end] TX offset...

This is an all too common misunderstanding. We are not transmitting audio, we are using a SSB transmitter to generate a radio frequency signal. When you work station at 1,100 Hz (1.1 kHz) AF, that station is transmitting at a radio frequency that is 1.1 kHz above your dial frequency, and your 2.2kHz transmit offset puts your signal 2.2 kHz above your dial frequency.

In your example, with 18,100 kHz dial frequency, you're working a station who is transmitting at 18,101.1 kHz, and you are transmitting at 18,102.2 kHz.

RIGHT ON, Mike!

Never ever call a station when you don't hear him unless you have a personal sked with him. And NEVER EVER call an expedition (or other DX station) on his frequency. With WSJT-X (and clones), ALWAYS set TX to what looks like a clear frequency and check the box to Hold TX Freq.

Hello Roger
It's great to see WSPR spot data being used in this way.

Several of the questions and comments that have come up in this thread following your observations can be answered, at least in part, by queries to the online database that's behind wspr.rocks. I've written a guide on how to use Grafana to produce various forms of plots from the database, and have put three examples relating to your observations on Dropbox. The guide can be downloaded via http://wsprdaemon.org/grafana.html

The three example plots are:
1. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d916b80fz6dset5/No_Spots_IO_and_CM.jpg?dl=0
A reciprocal pair, for grids IO (rx and tx) and CM (tx and rx), on 20 m of spot counts in one hourly intervals for the last three weeks. Color scales are different, reporters in grid CM receive more spots from IO than vice versa.

2. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ogm6dbv1q8p7v4w/No_Distinct_reporters_IO_and_CM.jpg?dl=0
A pair again, but this time of the number of distinct reporters in grid IO and CM hearing any spot on 20 m during the one hourly intervals.

3. https://www.dropbox.com/s/acwrnr8bijquudo/%25_receiving_IO_and_CM.jpg?dl=0
The final pair, essentially the first divided by the second, the percentage of active reporters in IO and CM that decode spots from the other. These are on the same color scale. Significantly higher percentage of reporters in CM decode spots from IO than vice versa.

If you care to send me a private message I can send you a link to this Grafana dashboard with login details and then you can add additional panels, such as % of senders in IO and CM decoded in the other etc.

There are entry boxes for the band and two grids so they can be changed at will, as can the time interval.
It's a fascinating subject!

kind regards
Gwyn G3ZIL

Perhaps you used to have the Hold Tx freq ticked and your Tx freq went on the top of the CQ calling station frequency. You now don't have the Hold Tx freq activated and you can work split without any automatic moving your Tx frequency, a preferred operating mode. As noted by others your transmission stops only, when you are close to the frequency of the calling station.

The program will stop if you're within 40 hz of the CQ callers location
to keep you from causing QRM to the ongoing QSO.   If you're beyond that
(which you should be working 'split') it won't turn off.   Not to worry,
you're not causing QRM, but this is why the operator is in front of the
computer and rig, to turn it off if necessary.

When I am calling a station simplex or very close to the same frequency, if that station responds to someone else, the program will no longer transmit.

However, when I am working split, the program will continue to call them unless I tell the program to stop transmitting or preferably the other station answers me on the next cycle.
