Re: 2.4.0 Hamlib CAT error with PowerSDR/TS-2000 emulation #Cat_RigControl #protocol

Sam Sjogren
 

Stu,

You're most welcome! Glad I could help.

My research list now includes hooking up the real TS-2000 I have in the shack to see whether the latest version works properly with it.  Might help determine whether the issue was with the TS-2000 emulation in PowerSDR, or a bug in Hamlib.  In any case, the native PowerSDR mode is working great so it's not a big priority, I've used 2.4.0 a lot this week and the rig control has been solid.


Icom 7600 cant get setup right #install

Tim
 

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!!!

Rapidly Switching VFO's v 2.4 #BugReport

Bill M
 

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.

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 Dave,
what does "worked bk" mean, and what specifically "shows up as red"?
Hi Dave,
If you mean by 'bk' worked before, then do you have the same wsjtx_log.adi file in both computers? And have you restarted wsjt-x after copying the wsjt_log.adi or rescan colors?

Re: Left mouse click to set Transmit Frequency #EnhancementReqest

Nicholas Shaxted
 

Being a left-handed mouser I vote for a way to agnostically use the mouse with no extra keys. Therefore it is likely I would vote for the opposite mouse click option.
Referring to right and left mouse clicks is so rightist!

I disagree. Using Control-Left-Click to set transmit frequency is completely counter-intuitive. Using Left-Click to set RX frequency and Right-Click to set TX frequency makes complete sense *AND* is a one-handed operation instead of requiring one hand on the keyboard and the other on the mouse.

Re: #modes #modes

The program seems to run just fine with D1 but I read somewhere to place it into the D2 setting as that was the best and it would remember that.  Not!  However I can’t tell any difference so I’ll just use the D1 that comes up automatically and not mess with changing it.

Thanks for the assistance.

Hi David,

although the D1/D2/D3 filter options on modern Icoms are generic and fully programmable, D1 is normally designated as the "wide" option. You can redefine your D1 filter parameters so they are suitable to WSJT-X usage or check the "Settings->Radio->Mode->None" option and set the USB-D2 mode manually on your rig.

Hi Carlos,

the latest WSJT-X Debian packages provided on the WSJT-X project page target Ubuntu 20.04. Mint Linux is based on Ubuntu 18.04 so is not compatible with packages built against an Ubuntu 20.04 distribution version. You must build from the sources tarball, instructions are in the INSTALL file at the root of the extracted tarball. Alternatively upgrade your system to Linux Mint 20.x which is based on Ubuntu 20.04.

After installing 2.4.0 yesterday, I was pleased to see that all my settings from 2.3.1 were automatically carried over.

When I hit the "Tune" button for the first time, I found that the XMIT power of the rig was pinned at 100W with a very high ALC reading. I had to bring the Power slider down to about 1/3 scale to get it down to a reasonable value. The same was true when actually transmitting. I found this to be the case on all bands. I had made no changes in PC or rig settings regarding audio (or anything else) between 2.3.1 and 2.4.0.

This should be just a one-time change per band for me, but it was a little startling.

Hi Bert,

Windows stores a per application and output device audio mixer level, sometimes a program update is seen as a new appliocation and reverts to default mixer settings. Use the recipe in the post below to set your Tx levels correctly:
