locked #BugReport ,WSJT-X 2.4.0 RC3 issue with TF-590S #IssueReport

N0FJP
 

Today I came across an issue I haven't had with past releases.
I use the "Tune" function, when changing bands, to tune the LDG antenna tuner  with my TS-590s. 
Today when I hit the tune, the radio keyed up, the antenna tuner tuned as it always has.
When i clicked on the "Tune" tab to unkey, the radio unkeyed and then keyed up right away. click the tune tab again and the radio stayed keyed up again. When the radio did unkey, the next time I try to send CQ, no output. 
Reboot the program cleared the problem.
Thought I would pass this along to the team. I didn't know where else to post this. Sorry. Marv N0FJP 73

I have attached the wsjtx_syslog.log for review and help.  The middle of February I had an IT type look at my PC and try to find out why my hard drive was full.  He found what he called "audio files" and I paid no attention to what or where they were.  I had 130 gigs of files on a terabyte hard drive and the rest was full of these "audio files".  Now I see these that I have sent.  I'm no techie or even close but I believe it's a problem.  I also believe it impacts my logging problem which is the amateur contact log from N3FJP by causing my call (WR4FT) to be spotted in the DX spotting section of the software.  One issue at a time:  what to do with the "syslog.log"?

OK, not being a PC wizard I have a question. Yesterday 20 March I worked A25RU on 20m FT8. Before I could log the contact I had a PC glitch. As I understand it is possible to look in WSJT and find the contact in a past log. How can this be done?

Dear Group,

 

I have an issue with selecting the required audio device.

I have an Kenwood TS990 and an Icom IC-9100 connected by USB to my computer. (Running the latest update of Windows 10)

In the sound settings I am able to select all the devices and if necessary set them as default. The audio works.

However, in the settings of WSJTX 2.3.0 I can only see and select the device which set as windows default. The other devices don’t show up in the list.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards and 73,

PE0FK (Frank)

locked WSJT-X TX Audio Stopped Working #txaudio #linux #raspberryPi

Mike Phipps <qrz@...>
 

Hello all,

I have been running Raspbian 10 on a Raspberry Pi 4 for months without issue. This morning, I discovered that the TX audio in WSJT-X has stopped working. Previously, I had it configured via ALSA to use my Yaesu FT-991A’s audio input and output directly without dealing with PulseAudio (at least not on the surface). RX audio still works perfectly fine, and audio in Fldigi works like it always has using PulseAudio directly, which adds to the confusion here. Additionally, sometimes when exiting, “wsjtx” executable hangs on a futex() call (described below).

In order to troubleshoot this sudden issue when I had changed literally nothing about my setup, I have taken the following steps:
  1. Changed the audio card to “pulse” for input and output
  2. Run “wsjtx” from the command line in hopes that it would dump something to stdout that would show me what was happening
  3. Shut down WSJT-X, backed up and deleted the ~/.config/WSJT-X.ini and ~/.share/local/WSJT-X files/directories, then started and reconfigured WSJT-X
  4. Shut down WSJT-X and removed the above files/directories again, then ran an “sudo apt purge wsjtx && sudo apt autoremove”, then reinstalled 2.4.0-rc3 from the armhf deb file
  5. Run it via strace to see what it was doing (even though that generates a LOT of output), but this was more to see why it was hanging, which is how I discovered that it was hanging on futex(0x1a66be10, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 0, NULL)
  6. Repeated the process in step 4, except installing the latest stable version of WSJT-X (2.3.0) instead

Even after all of that, TX audio still does not work. One thing I have noticed in all of this is that despite how the output sound device is configured, it does not send anything on the output. It will key the PTT just fine (and my rig is set up correctly to use DATA-USB as the output, taking its sound from what comes in via the USB connection - as I said, it works fine on Fldigi), but it does not even show up under Playback Streams or on pavucontrol’s Playback tab at all. RX audio does use a recording stream, which does show up under Recording Streams and also on pavucontrol’s Recording tab (and continues to after I close the WSJT-X window until I manually kill the “wsjtx” process due to that futex() issue I described above).

Additionally, it also appears that JS8Call is affected by this issue. I know that they’re different pieces of software used for different purposes, but there is a bunch of shared code between them (or at least there used to be), so my guess is that it has something to do with the Qt Multimedia libraries or something of that nature that both use.

I searched online for similar issues, but I didn’t see much of anything that amounted to a resolution. Is there a fix for this short of me having to reinstall Raspbian?

The FT4 segment is questionable.  I would recommend staying *below*
28.160 and look for something below 28.145 ... perhaps between 28.130

I passed the QSY request to stations in VE, GM, DK, G.  We will QSY 28.135 MHz for Q65/30A for testing.

The FT4 segment is questionable.  I would recommend staying *below*
28.160 and look for something below 28.145 ... perhaps between 28.130
and 28.140.

There may be a beacon operating there that isn’t listed anywhere, and you may have never heard it, but it’s there and I don’t think they’d appreciate the QRM. Additionally, I think the phone band starts right around there (or even lower) in R1 and/or R3, for what it’s worth.

I think that will work internationally, too, but maybe someone from the other ITU Regions can comment on that.

locked Q65/30A 10m 28.135 MHz -- Activity Report #GeneralGroupInfo

Bob K4RCG
 

Several W/DX stations (W, VE7, GM, TA, M, DK) are QRV today testing Q65/30A on 10m.  QRG is 28.135 MHz.  I've heard 3 EU stations via remote SDR in Scotland but only a few "pings" on the waterfall here.  If propagation improves, this mode should be a lot of fun on 10m as well as VHF/UHF.
