Hi Bill

No problem, thanks for letting me know.

I managed to investigate the client server negotiation anyway, using MA and Wireshark, that was the object of the exercise.

Thanks again for all the good work.

Hi Rick,

Nothing unusual was going on, but maybe it has something to do with background activities in the computer?

What mode are you using that takes longer than ten minutes for a single

transmission? I know some of them are slow, but I have not seen anything

THAT slow. And, AFAIK, all modern digital modes contain the call in each

transmission.

I'm using a SoftRock RXTX Ensemble, which is controlled directly from WSJT-X via USB.
Brent,

Directly?
That seems to say you are not using it in conjunction with a SDR program to process the IQ signals.

locked VS: [WSJTX] previous contacts not showing Green

Reino Talarmo
 

Hi Jay,

 

You need to copy your previous contacts from the prior installation in  Windows PC to the current one. The needed file is wsjtx_log.adi and the file location is defined in the User Guide clause 15.1. File Locations. You may also go to the relevant directory inside the wsjt-x using File menu item Open log directory.

 

You may combine the current file and the previous file using any text editor. You may need to delete the extra header line from the middle of the combined file, if you combine whole files. Please note that in V.2.2.2 there is a minor hitch at the end of the header line, which should end to <eoh> characters. After adding the combined file into PI4, you should have it read at the opening of wsjt-x. If not, rescan it using Rescan ADIF log in Colors.

Aihe: [WSJTX] previous contacts not showing Green

 

Good evening,

I recently installed WSJT-X and GridTracker on a Raspbery PI4. Any contacts I make new now show up as "Green" on the display, but QSOs I made prior to this installation from my Windows PC do not.  They do, however, show in GridTracker as prior contacts. My assumption is that only has contacts recorded from the time of it's installation, and that makes perfect sense to me. 

My question, how do I put prior QSOs into WSJT-X so that it is a complete record?

locked Re: CAT Control of K3 Via RS232 Jack on P3?

Arthur Bernstein
 

Bob,
This is in addition to the setup message I sent you for the K3. Line Out and Line In are on the rear of the K3. Line Out is the audio that goes to your microphone connection on your sound card, Line In is the audio that goes from sound card speaker output to the K3. Sound card output should be set to start at around 50%. I have my Line Out set to 12  on my K3(check by pushing in Speed/Mic button when in TX Data Mode, making sure you see tiny green LED lit for Mic.) Under normal non digital voice modes this control will set your mike gain. For voice and digital they are independent of each other.
OK? Hope it Helps.

Hi Art,

Yes, there is an RS232 between the P3 and the K3 and an available (second) RA232 port on the P3 for computer control.  From reading the manual it “seems” like it will work but I wanted to confirm with someone who has actually successfully done it .

Where did you find the information to successfully set up the CAT control on the K3 for WSJTX?

Btw, I’ve been using WSJTX with my 7851 successfully for a year or two but cannot get the line in line out approach to work on the K3 so I’m hoping the CAT control will solve my problem.

When you used CAT control on the K3 did you STILL need to use the line in/out connections or were you able to do everything through the USB cable?

Thanks!

Bob

Bob,

Unless you have upgraded the K3 with the KIO3B you will still have to use the line in/out in addition to the RS232 for CAT control.

This seems to be at odds with the modes that take longer than 600 seconds to complete.
Is there some provision made in the software that I haven't discovered? Or are users of the longer modes just blowing off the identification requirement?

Yes, in a way.  I'm using a SoftRock RXTX Ensemble, which is controlled directly from WSJT-X via USB.  The program knows the VFO tuned frequency and the audio frequency offset.  I am communicating with ACLog via JTAlert, which also knows those things and reports the correct offset.  What I don't know how to do is put the two together to get ACLog to have the correct "received frequency".

Bob,
I use a USB to serial cable to go between my computer and the K3 RS-232 port. In WSJTX you need to
put in the info required for the K3. I don’t have a P3, but isn’t it connected to the K3 via one of their cables which makes it “part of the family?”

Because some people, including me and Steve the OP, prefer to adjust the Tx and Rx audio levels using analogue pots instead of having to use the mouse to move on-screen sliders up or down.

Steve - the SignaLink-USB definitely does have a well-documented issue with LF noise.  G4ZLP makes a near-equivalent to the SL-USB; it's called the DigiMaster Datalink and is not only cheaper than the SL-USB but also its LF noise, below approx 300-400Hz, is typically 20dB lower than that of the SL-USB.

Your problem with FT8 on 20m certainly sounds like it could be RFI-related, especially as you appear to have problems with a wired mouse when Tx'ing; have you tried trying to make 20m FT8 QSOs by Tx'ing only low power, eg. <5W?  You might there's a threshold below which you can make QSOs successfully, which would then strongly indicate an RFI issue.

What type of antenna are you using?  It might be that there's a lot of stray RF floating around on 20m that's getting into your system despite your use of ferrites.

I would think that if you can do that with other software, such as the K3 Utility, it would work with WSJT-X, since the K3 Utility also provides some command functions.

I know I can do that with my KX3, and the USB cable to the rig goes through the KXPA100 no problems.
