Rig failure #WSJTX_config

Peter
 

Using wsjt-x version 2.4.0, ft8

Any help would be appreciated. I have spent a couple of days making changes with no result. All has been working ok for months before last Windows update.

THERE IS *NO* EXPLICIT B4 COLOR IN WSJTX.

The only color on B4 is any residual color - are all your "decode highlighting" options the same (including the checked options)?

Are you using an eternal program - like JT Alert - on both systems
and is that program configured the same on both systems?

I noticed today that my antenna's are not showing up in PSK reporter.
Any thoughts ?

Thank you.  You may be on to something, I need to do some checking I cant do right now, but I will check SWR to ensure 2 to 1 or less as next steps!!!


no mike found when starting computer #AudioIssues #FT8

Tim Hollembaek
 

2013 Dell Latitude E6330 laptop
Windows 10 Pro
2.7 ghz processor
8 GB ram
x64 based processor (64 bit)

This laptop has a dual audio jack that is mic/headphones and is the only way to get audio on and out of the laptop.

Rig is a Kenwood TS-830S using the phones jack for audio out and the mike jack for audio in from laptop. I’m using VOX to trigger the rig.

WSJT-X v 2.3.1

I have used the rig with a Linux machine until recently with no problems.

Problem:
At startup with rig attached, the microphone is missing when I look in WSJT-X audio settings and the headphones show connected. The program will toggle the transmitter on but there is nothing being received because of the missing audio input to the laptop. It appears the laptop can’t find the mike unless there is audio coming into it. If I connect a mike/headphone to the jack and test it using Skype’s sound test the test works fine. Then when reconnecting inputs from rig to laptop I find the mike is now connected in the audio tab and WSJT-x works fine. I can then use FT8 for hours with now problems which indicates I am not dealing with some intermittent hardware issue. I have had to do this convoluted start-up procedure since I started using this laptop with my rig. Any suggestions as to a fix?


Re: Power slider setting to rig audio level changed a lot from 2.3.1 to 2.4.0 #txaudio

I upgraded to 2.4.0 and I'm running Windows 10 Pro.   I saw no change in the PWR slider for either TUNE or Operate.  I do have Remember Tune and PWR settings checked in the F2 menu option.

Re: #Cat_RigControl PTT Port ERROR happened again #Cat_RigControl

I'm a believer in KISS -- Keep It Simple, Stupid!:) If your radio supports VOX from the input you're using to send the digital signal, try that option. I've done nothing but VOX for SSB, RTTY, and WSJT modes for at least 15 years of WSJT modes and heavy duty contesting. K3 since 2008, FT1000MP before that.

Lars,  Try the rig in the dropdown for IC-7100e4-DATA
It has for the DATA command this,
[pmDIG_U]
; These lines select USB-D for USB digital mode, FIL1
Command=FEFE88E0.2600.01.01.01.FD
ReplyLength=16
Validate=FEFE88E02600010101FD.FEFEE088FBFD

If you want FIL2 then edit this entry like this,
FEFE88E0.2600.01.01.02.FD
And like this,
Validate=FEFE88E02600010102FD.FEFEE088FBFD

I have been fiddling around with the rig control head so I might have change something in the IC-7100 settings but what? Any suggestions or help are welcome.

Hi Lars,

Omni-Rig can only support a limited number of modes on your rig, there are insufficient to support FSK RTTY modes as well as SSB-DATA modes. You must amend your rig's Omni-Rig .ini file to send appropriate CAT commands, and decode CAT query commands, to support the USB-DATA mode of your rig. If you do not want to do that then you should select the "Settings->Radio->Mode->None" option in WSJT-X and set your rig's mode manually when using WSJT-X. Alternatively do not use Omni-Rig, but I assume you are using the rig server because another application is sharing the control of your rig.

I am stumped. I can no longer get WSJT-X to transmit with my Icom 7600.  I had the program setup and working, then didnt use for a year or so. Been trying now for a week to get going and no joy.

I use an Icom 7600 USB connection.  The receive portion works perfect.  Transmit wise, if I use CAT the radio will start to transmit, then a failure message from the program (Rig failure - Hamlib error IO error port open rig open msgs) radio stuck transmitting until I turn off.. IF I chose DTR or RTS nothing happens.  Ive tried all the modes, split operation is none. Latest Windows OS 64 bit with recent updates installed.

Im truely stumped.  Did search for youtube IC-7600 setup but not finding much.

Thanks!!!

Hi Tim,

which version of WSJT-X are you using?

Does WSJT-X track your rig's frequency, and is WSJT-X able to set your rig's frequency?

Have you disabled "CI-V Transceive Mode" on your rig?

I have an Icom IC-7800/PW-1 and a Navigator. Latest version of Win 10. I have never had an issue with any versions over many years(14?). I downloaded 2.4. I used it for a while after the download and no apparent issues. Finally seeing the 3A on the bands I was chasing it. I switched to F/H mode and set the frequency to 7070. Suddenly the VFO's began switching back and forth rapidly  A-B-A-B-A-B etc. I was in receive...I tried changing bands...and various other buttons. I finally just shut the rig and amplifier down.

I turned the 7800 back on alone and tried again. It worked for a bit but again changing from 7074 to 7070 it started again,,,nothing stopped it. I shut the WSJT-x down and it stopped. I am using JTAlert latest version as well.So I started it all up, changed the dial and it began. This time I shut the JTAlert down...and it kept switching. And again it stopped when I shut down WSJT-x. So after downloading version 2.4 for a second time and trying that, it still switched. So I searched high and low for version 2.3.1 with no luck, but I still had it in my downloads and loaded it...No Problem and all is normal. So if it is a bug or something defaulted with the new version, and problem is in my settings...I am fine with 2.3 for now.

Bill,

first off before I address your issues with WSJT-X v2.4.0, I hope you are not using a PW-1 connected to the same CI-V connection as a PC.

I second this. It may be best to make it a selectable option so it won't trip up some of our older ops that have grown to expect one behavior and get surprised with something unexpected.

Hi Tim, I have an IC7600 and it works fine using CAT PTT.  RTS and DTR won't do anything unless you have the appropriate hardware connected. Have you tried transmitting on low power to check for RFI? By the way, you should always use rig split or fake it to avoid harmonics in the pass band.

>I suggest that the TX4 option be a toggle of ALT-R instead of ALT-R and CTRL-R. Much easier to remember and use. Thanks for considering this change. 73, David AD4TJ

 

Hi David,

Just my counter opinion: it is much easier to use two independent keys as you don’t need to look which one of RRR/RR73 is currently in use, just hit the key combination and the correct one is selected.

I don’t know what keystrokes you speak of. Just double click it and it will toggle between the two settings. No keys involved.

Hi Dave,

So in two computers the wb colors are different. What you mean by set the same? I assume that your wsjt-x Colors are set the same. If so, do you have the same wsjtx_log.adi file in both computers? If in your windows 7 computer is an empty wsjtx_log.ade file, then all calls are new and the New Continent color is shown. Well, just my guess as you have provided so little information, hi!

Re: #Cat_RigControl PTT Port ERROR happened again #Cat_RigControl

Another thing to suggest is to read the release notes for the latest Hamlib, since that's added between -rc4 and the final release.


Re: #Cat_RigControl PTT Port ERROR happened again #Cat_RigControl

Taka-san,

I see you have the same serial port specified for CAT Control as well as PTT via RTS.  Is that what you intend to do? Did it work like that before? I've never used such a configuration, personally would use a separate serial device for PTT if I were using hardware keying, but that's the one thing that jumps out at me to ask about.

Hi David,

The original request for the Alt+R and Ctrl+R was done for blind hams to be able to control that.
The problem for using Alt+R only as a toggle is  that a blind ham would not know the current state.
Using Alt+R is explicit for RR73 while the Ctrl+R is explicit for RRR.
A sighted ham ca also double click on the TX4  button there to switch between the two 
while a blind ham using various screen readers had no ability to do that.  

73,

Sam W2JDB
