Get a 32 inch 4K monitor. You will really appreciate it. Be sure to use a video card to drive all monitors to save CPU. For decoding.

Hi,

new UHSDR firmware 2.12.2 has been released and tested successfully with WSJTX 2.5.0 and 2.5.2. Both the mcHF and the FT817 entry work now as expected.

Thanks for the info Kari.

That worked for me, but I did have to change the name of the downloaded on line help file from the drop-down box in WSJT-X that saved as WSJT-X User Guide.html to wsjtx-main-2.5.2.html

I do have the On Line User Guide as a file in the documents folder.  It works
if opened from the Documents folder, but I cannot seem to move it so it will
open from the Help drop-down menu in WSJT-X.
you need to copy the file as the 'root' user.
Open terminal and type following 2 commands:
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/doc/wsjtx/
sudo mv ~/Documents/wsjtx-main-2.5.2.html /usr/local/share/doc/wsjtx/
"sudo" will ask you for your password, type it when requested.

When the rig is manually placed into USB-D everything seems to work fine. However, since this rig is operated remotely, manually setting the mode is an issue.

I re-installed WSJT-X 2.4 and all works as it should. Went back to 2.5.2 and its back to needing to be set manually before any TX will work.

I tried replacing libhamlib-4.dll as mentioned in a v 2.5 related post and that didn’t resolve the issue.

Please advise.

Hi Francis,

so I can see what is happening put the attached file into your WSJT-X configuration files directory (on MS Windows that is the same directory as the log files directory "Menu->File->Open log directory"), restart WSJT-X, carry out a minimal sequence of steps that demonstrates the issue, then quit WSJT-X. It will have created a file called WSJT-X_RigControl.log on your Windows Desktop. Send me (g4wjs <at> classdesign <dot> com) the logfile for analysis please?

Once you have sent the logfile you can delete it and the log configuration file to return to normal operation.

locked Auto Seq doesn't work on MSK144 #MSK144

Mark, WD4ELG
 

Is it just me, or did I miss something in the manual?  When calling CQ on MSK144 and I get a response, the software does NOT shift into QSO mode....it doesn't even act like I have received a call.

Once I double click on the callsign of the station that called me, it will go through the auto-sequence.

This is not the expected behavior.  With FT4 and FT8 the software does recognize a response to my CQ and initiates the next sequence for the QSO.

Thanks

Hi Phil,

 

On your Dimension-4 screen copy I see that you may not have mouse clicked on the «Settings» button on the right side of the Dimension-4 screen? If not, the Dimension-4 program may not be working on your PC.

 

On my Windows-10 PC I need to mouse click on the «Settings» button, before the Dimension-4 program starts working. When mouse clicking on the «Settings» button, a new window appears, asking for my permission to let Dimension-4 make changes to the PC’s clock. Without my acceptance here, on the second window, the Dimension-4 program will not maintain the correct time on my PC. And after this is done, the «Settings» button will change its text to «Advanced», showing that the Dimension-4 program is now working on my PC.

 

You should check if your PC is adjusted to the correct time by using the WWW.TIME.IS web site, and update/refresh/reload that web site from time to time, to see if your PC has the correct time within +/- 1 second. You can also look at the DT column on the WSJT-X main window, if your PC’s clock is adjusted to the time of the majority of stations received.

 

This operation via the «Settings» button on the Dimension-4 screen has to be repeated every time my PC is restarted. If not, the Dimension-4 program will not work as intended on my PC.

 

Recently I have switched to the «BktTimeSync» program, and my experience so far is that this program keeps my PC clock better adjusted to the correct time than the Dimension-4 – but also for this other time-keeping program I need to give permission to the program to change or adjust the time on my PC every time my PC is started or restarted  – if not, the time-keeping program will not work on my ASUS PC.

 

73 and good luck from Tom, LA4LN

Phil,

of course the time in WSJT-X matches the time on your system, that is
where it gets it from. Have you done anything to ensure your PC's time
is well synchronized to UTC?

Hi Chuck,

 

On my ASUS PC with Windows-10 I usually reduce the size of the WSJT-X main window when using the PC for other duties, so that I can keep one eye on the band activity. But I have never experienced what you are reporting when restarting the PC – even a small size of the main WSJT-X window is preserved accurately when restarting my PC, and loading WSJT-X again. So I wonder if your experience has to do with something specific for your PC?

Bill, I appreciate the response but I'm not reducing the main window to its minimum width. Rather, I'm reducing it to about 1 cm wider than the minimum. It still won't retain that size upon restart. This is a relatively minor issue, I admit.
