Re: Worked Before

Ok, I think I would not be likely to do that but I think I will try the setup anyway to keep all in one and to have everything in my workspaces. Setup should not be that hard as I assume I would use the same things I am using now for my other DXLABS use for the most part.

The start WSJTX from Launcher is a nice feature too. Hopefully it will not cause an error when it starts the Commander will not yet be running.
Not clear if I should start WSJTX first so that it will be available to SC or if I should start DXLABS modules first. In that case WSJTX spot source will not yet be available to SC. Which is the best way to go?

I am guessing that since UDP protocol does not verify thigs that it might not matter which way I go as the UDP code will just sit and wait for a message anyway.

This FT8 operation has a lot more things to think of than one would at first think. I have only used it in a basic mode running only WSJTX to make contacts and doing export import of log but I think if I want to get serious I must set things up to make operation more a reasonable system.

After trying both I think SC is best. Not using commander. I think no loss of function that way and WSJT was already configured for my TS590SG.

+ The downside of letting WSJT-X control your transceiver when operating in a K1JT mode is that if you double-click a CW or SSB Spot Database Entry, your transceiver will not QSY.

I know that when using just JTALERT and WSJTX that the coloring in received panel can show me if a station has been works before. The questions I have are

1. If I am logging to DXKeeper does it use the DXKEEPER log to check for worked before or must I import it into WSJT log for this to work? I assume if I do that once and never delete the adi made by WSJT that I will never have to do it again but that makes a VERY LARGE file.
2. If using DXKEEPER for logging WHICH (WORKS VERY WELL} will it show if it is a needed. If I hover over one of the calls in JTALERT it gives me that needed data but is it only from the WSJT log adi, the DXLAB adi, or both?
3. I know I could set up Spot Collector to handle those things but I have not the screen space nor the current desire for that complexity.
