I've not seen any clear or definitive answer to the question "can one
successfully run FT-8/4 or other WSJT-X modes via a Class C solid-state
VHF amplifier?"  Asking because I have a VHF amplifier which is not linear.

In my application, I am working 2M meteor scatter.   I find that power and antenna gain are both needed.    I just happen to have a solid-state Class C commercial amplifier capable of about 500 watts output. 

There are two very good meteor showers in August.

The Pi is connected to the 991A by a USB cable only.
I would try to avoid using the USB 3.0 connections for this.  I've noticed that they are a bit finicky.
Also you might want to ensure that you reboot the Pi after you've made the USB connections.  It's supposed to pick up the new connection, but I've seen issues with that as well.

Agree, try JS8CALL.  And take a look at this YouTube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/c/oh8stn     Julian shows JS8CALL in action.

The specifications I see for FairRite 31 is that it loses its effectiveness above about 10MHz. I don't understand how you justify only using 31 above this frequency?

Hi,

I quiet often use the  "TX Next" option to force a TX while a plane is in a good spot. Sometimes the next block has a TX by the auto TX algorithm. Is it possible to have the auto TX algorithm reset when ever a TX Next TX occurs?

Just an idea as an "option" somewhere, as I know not everyone will want this:

When changing bands, clear the spectrum display.

Yes, I know I can do that by clicking the "controls" box, but then that brings up (or toggles) the controls.  I don't normally (ever?) play with the controls once set, so don't need to see them.  Sure a click - or double-click, isn't the most taxing task around, but just a suggestion/idea for consideration

Thanks,

locked Re: What should Radio TX Power Setting really be? #wsjt-x #WSJTX_config

Peter Hall, VK6HP
 

Hi Willie

The easiest way to get the SDR going with WSJT-X without disturbing any existing program instances dedicated to other radios is to follow the instructions in the WSJT-X manual regarding multiple instances of WSJT-X.  In essence, this involves choosing a name for the SDR instance, then running WSJT-X from a Windows command line prompt, with the name of the radio within the prescribed syntax.  You can then make a desktop shortcut to the new instance, with the target the same as the run command you used in the command line.  For example, my shortcut target reads: C:\WSJT\wsjtx\bin\wsjtx.exe --rig-name=SDRUno 

As I mentioned before, I use VSPE for the CAT control.  I just create a "pair" of serial devices (COM7 and COM8).  Within SDRuno Rx Control settings I assign COM7 as the CAT port, with COM8 used in the WSJT-X "radio" tab.  Similarly, the free version of Virtual Audio Cable creates one cable, which is assigned as the  "out" path in SDRuno (set to both L and R audio channels). In WSJT-X settings the virtual audio cable is assigned as the audio path.

Here's  a screenshot taken during some setup experiments involving "weak-ish" signals earlier this year.  Although the various spectrum settings are less than optimum, in this case you can see the WSJT-X display is more useful than the SDRuno spectra.

I am an older HAM (VHF/UHF) but relatively new to HF and digital. I just started learning the capabilities of WSJT-X in the last two months. It works on my IC-7300 and I have exercised WHISPER mode on all my available bands as well as competed a handful of QSO's on FT8. I have only dabbled in the other modes and in receive only.

I got into the HF and digital not to talk around the world but more to explore back up comms across the US assuming a total loss of cell phone, land line, and internet. I would like to understand the current capabilities, and possibly explore enhancements to WSJT, that would allow someone to have a defined set of users (by call sign) and autonomously have those users be able to ping each other for open RF pathways in the various bands (sort of like WHISPER only two-way), then be able to add in text messaging (or some other form of messaging) when some further or more complex messaging is necessary (i.e. an emergency). So I am thinking a scenario like family members (licensed HAM operators) on opposite coasts and all other comm options fail. Prior to whatever disaster causes loss of comms, the autonomous pinging part of this would have already provided each end with a good idea of which bands have RF pathways to link up on. The time slot for that band would be pre-planned during the autonomous pinging (i.e.40m on the hour, 20m at 10 past the hour, etc). Knowing the bands that have open RF paths, the time slot for that band, and a pre-coordinated link-up frequency in that band would provide someone a starting place to try to QSO with the family (or anyone in that pre-coordinated group) in the case of some disaster where suddenly you dont have cell phone or internet.

I hope I am explaining this well enough to generate some conversation or get some advice on tools that may be out there and how best to configure them.

I havent played with this yet, but I think I read on the forum that you can add in frequencies in config files for WSJT so that you can set up, for example, FT8 mode on a quieter part of the band than where most of the traffic is taking place. So maybe part of what I am thinking is just configuration files?
Not sure if you can control the relative time slot for the band like I described, but maybe there are other ways to approach this that are also just a config file change?

Summarizing as best I can, the goal would be for stations within a known network, you could 1) autonomously pulse each other on each of a list of bands that are coordinated in time, 2) determine when two way transmission paths are open between users on the different bands, 3) be able to insert some message 'break' if you wanted to break from monitoring and actually converse, either by voice or data.

Someone will probably tell me its already been done, but I havent seen it yet so I am just asking.

Thanks.
