Steve
 

Okay, this is embarrassing, but I had to add a contact to my log that I apparently missed logging during a torrid run on 6 meters. After adding the QSO by editing the log file, my log is saved in rich text format, and doesn’t work anymore in the program. I didn’t have an option to save it as an adif, and can’t figure out what would be the best program/file to convert the rtf or comma delimited file back to an adif log file. Any help would be appreciated. I can’t import my wsjt-x log into my logging program (DXLab) until I fix this. Apologies for asking a question that’s probably been asked before…

Split "Rig" has always worked with FTdx-5000. Split "Fake it" has not. This libhamlib-4.dll works on 'fake it' so far.

locked SO2R EW Crashing #logging

Dennis W1UE
 

Mike

I came across a problem using 2.6.0. In an SO2R Environment, one of the
EWs will crash. Everything will be going fine, then all of a sudden
one of the EWs will crash with an error message. I can be mousing
something, or the mouse will be totally still, and the EW will crash.
When it crashes, it produces an error message:

"Something unexpected caused WSJT to close the Radio TCP port
unexpectedly.
Please try restarting WSJT again. If that does not work restart N1MM."

Starting WSJT again does not restore operation. Once this happens, going
into Task Manager and killing the orphan JT9 also doesn't work. The only
way
I've found to get WSJT to work again is to restart the computer.

Is this a known problem? I've seen a couple of other references to this in
other postings. I can submit the files if you would like to see this
further,
or if its been addressed in the Hamlib you're sending out
now I can test it there.

Thank you for your work!

I have found that when a station is in contest mode (rare grids trying to speed up the process, not in a contest) and I'm not, I can work them, have an exchange and the QSO is not logged in my program. I never get a prompt. Do I have to also be in the contest mode to get the logging prompt. I'm sure the answer is obvious but my brain can't figure it out. How do I log the Q?

Reino Talarmo
 

Hi Daniel,
You should take into account that WSJT-X only amends the log file and does not read it continuously. If you want to have an up to date indication of the worked before stations in both computers, then there is no support in WSJT-X for multiple instances. WSJT-X reads the log file only at program start and manually using the Rescan ADIF Log button in the Colors window.

An external logging program that can accept logging information from multiple sources could be a working solution. I am not familiar on those.

If you want just a log file for the records, then there has been discussions how that could be done using operating system settings. I have not followed all details on that discussion.

You may log a QSO at any time using the 'Log QSO' button on the middle row. You may need to amend information on the logging window.

For a test try turning the power slider all the way down and see if it keys at the end of the transmission.

Yeah, the 706 has CIV control but not PTT. Using a USB/CIV converter, you
can control frequency, mode, split, etc. If you don't add anything for PTT
you can use VOX to make it work. Been there, done that.

PTT is available through ACC connector that also contains AF in and AF out. For PTT a simple one transistor/fet interface is needed and in WSJT-X RST or DTR will be used for PTT. If your computer has a RS-232 interface then it is the same as used for CAT. A USB - RS232 interface works in the same manner.
The CAT (actually CI-V) does not support PTT signaling.

Looks like CI-V on the '706 is just another name Icom used for CAT, so you should have freq control, no? I do see that PTT is not available through that interface though . . . so VOX or PTT via the MIC jack and a serial interface will be needed.

Do you see the same PTT behavior on your interface with the radio disconnected? If so, the issue has nothing to do with your rig . . . it's in the audio interface and/or computer. Can you put the audio from the interface on a speaker to hear, specifically, what audio is holding PTT high? And have you checked the docs for your interface to ensure that there is no VOX delay to keep it from dropping between words that might be set a bit high?

I know that someone asked a bit ago for more details on what you call a "DataLink" USB audio interface, but I missed any reply, and searches reveal nothing. Might you be referring to a Tigertronics SignaLink? If so, the delay control on the face does exactly this . . .

This shouldn't be too difficult, one would think . . .

while in RIG SPLIT, were gone, and they appear to be!

I ran from 501 to 3001, working up in 500 Hz steps, and worked a station
at each stopping point, I then checked on PSK reporter to insure I was
where WSJT-X said I was, and I was!

I today replaced last nights hamlib dll update, with the latest one this
