Re: softrock rxtx as panadapter?

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

is it possible to use a Softrock RXTX sdr radio as a panadapter,
Yes, if you feed the Softrock with an IF sample from the transceiver or
provide a separate antenna. This has been done with other Softrock
receivers, SDR-IQ, etc. For Softrock, the most convenient panadapter
software is NaP3 - see: http://www.telepostinc.com/NaP3.html.

The connections will differ based on whether you are using a separate
antenna feed or the SoftRock is fixed to the transceiver IF but the
general configuration outlines can be found by searching the DXLab
WiKi (http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/GettingStarted) for SDR.

New to this concept, so any help would be advantageous.
System at the minute is TS-870S on com1, PTT on com3, and SCS PTC-2 on com 4.
Softrock is on USB, and CW keying is via parallel port.

Hi Dave -

Thanks for spending the time on this. Since it only impacts people who have
more than one log and use WorkSpaces, it might not be worth the effort to
resolve this - especially if it's pilot error. However, please give me one
last try.

When I finish working on one log, and if I make a change to something - like
the log layout, I'll save the change, and then Update the WS.

After making a change in a DXLab application's setting, you must
terminate that application before directing the Launcher to update the
Workspace.

When I activate a different WS and open that log, the backup location is
that of the previously updated WS. It seems like the backup directory for
the WS that was just updated is overwriting the backup directory for another
callsign/log. I have multiple folders within my backup directory (one per
call). Updating the WS changes the backup file location in ALL of the
folders - not just the for the call that is being updated.

Use Windows Explorer to view the "date and time of last modification" for
the files in each of two of your Workspace folders. Now direct the Launcher
to Update one of these two Workspaces. Check the "date and time of last
modification" of the files in each Workspace folder. Were both Workspaces
updated, or just one?

Hi Dave -

Sorry for the delay in responding to your request.

I started DXK 10.3.2 for W2RZS. The backup location was J75RZ. I
changed
the location to W2RZS, didn't do a backup, and closed DXK. I restarted
DXK,
and the backup location remained W2RZS, as expected.

This confirms that the defect your reported was in fact corrected.
Versions of DXKeeper prior to 10.3.2 would have not updated the
Windows
Registry to reflect the change in backup folder from W2RZS to J75RZ
unless
you first initiated a backup.


I then updated the Work Space for W2RZS to save the backup location.

I then activated the WS for J75RZ, and opened DXK for J75RZ. The
backup
location shows W2RZS.

The implication of this is that your J75RX Workspace specified the
backup
location for W2RZS.


I changed it to J75RZ, closed DXK without making a B/U, re-opened DXK
for
J75RZ, and confirmed that the B/U location was J75RZ.

Once again confirming that the defect was corrected.

I closed DXK, and updated the WS for J75RZ to save the B/U location.

I then activated the WS for W2RZS, opened DXK for W2RZS, and the B/U
location was J75RZ.

You confirmed that the Windows Registry entry for the backup
location was
set to W2RZS when you restarted DXKeeper above. The question is why
this
wasn't saved in the W2RZS Workspace when you updated it.

Using Notepad, navigate to the W2RZS folder in the Launcher's
Workspaces
folder, and (with Notepad's "Files of Type" selector set to "All
Files"),
open the file DXKeeper.reg

Be careful to make no changes in this file (in case you
inadvertently
invoke the File:Save menu item)

Search for
BackupDirectory

You should find a line like
"BackupDirectory"="C:&#92;&#92;DXLab&#92;&#92;Archives&#92;&#92;Log Backups"

What does the line you find look like?
Terminate Notepad without saving changes.

That is quite likely. It could be almost any hardware device or combination of devices. Pretty much impossibe to determine without the ability to test every possible combination of devices. Given that thought, it's really pretty amazing that the Windows OS runs as well as it does on so many different combinations of hardware devices.

I have successfully imported my logs into DXKeeper from Writelog using the

I don't see any way to go the other way. Even though I am using DXkeeper I
would like to keep my Writelog in sync with my current contacts.

On the "Log QSOs" tab of DXKeeper's Main window, filter the Log Page
Display to contain the QSOs you wish to convey to WriteLog; if your goal is
to convey your "latest contacts", then you'll be filtering by date. Then
select the Main window's "Export QSOs" tab, set the Options panel to "Export
standard ADIF", and click the Start button; when prompted, specify the
pathname of the file into which the exported ADIF records will be placed.


I can get my entire log into Writelog if I open up a new Log to import it
into but I just want to make a small ADIF file with my latest contacts and
append that to my existing Writelog log.

If I dump the entire log into a new Writelog log it does not track my
country multipliers. I track my country totals, including deleted in my
Writelog log. I show nothing as far as country multipliers by band or at
all if I Import my entire DXkeeper log into a new Writelog log.

DXkeeper has so much more information than Writelog that it may be a case of
overload and being out of sync with what it expected.

Yet, I did manage to get several contacts from DXkeeper into my existing
Writelog log, initially. I just can't remember how I managed to do so.

I still haven't figured out how to show my country totals in my DXLab
modules.

On the Main window's "Check Progress" tab, click the "DXCC, Challenge, &

in IE9's address box after navigating to the LotW site and logging
in.

In any case, since I can't replace URLMON.dll with a working version,
backing out IE9 allows me to sync with LotW.

I doubt Microsoft's veracity in describing the problem since IE9 quite
clearly replaces a version of URLMON that works with one that does not.

Seems like you should NOT be experiencing a URLMON.dll problem. Can you fix
the problem by rolling back to IE8 via a restore point? Are you using
ReadyBoost or do you have a flash drive you could run ReadyBoost on for a
test?

On the definition of clean install.... MS engineers explained to me
their definition is the option which reformats the drive, in which
case you will loose all data and programs as well as the OS. If that
was not the case for your computers when Windows 7 was installed, the
URLMON.dll is not correctly created for use beyond IE8.
This was a brand new hard drive (two, in fact). When the SSD would
not install I put Windows 7/64 on a new, never used before, 160 GB
SATA drive and reinstalled/copied my ham software (including DXLab
Suite) to &#92;Ham Programs on a new, never used before 500 GB SATA drive.

Regarding the SSDs; I've been working on the SpotCollector DPC spike
which in combination with other Delayed Procedure Calls from various
sources including hard disk I/O, parallel port generated CW, incoming
email, streaming audio and video can cause all sorts of timing issues
in equipment and programs associated with the DXLab Suite. Solid
State Drives have been suggested as a fix, but I've had some success
using a second (physical) hard drive for the SC spot database and a
32 GB flash drive dedicated to ReadyBoost. My computer is one I built
for about $550, using an AMD Phenom II 970 CPU, 8 GB of RAM, and a
half Terra-byte Hitachi hard drive.

Moving the SC spot database off to the second drive (pull-out from my
old computer) made a huge difference in DXLab performance, while
adding the $30, 32 GB flash drive (formatted as exFAT) dedicated to
ReadyBoost lets email, file downloads, disk maintenance (including
virus scans) run with no time outs or interruptions to the FLEX-1500
VAC and CWSkimmer operations.

While I considered buying a SSD, I can't justify the expense at this
point, as the flash drive with ReadyBoost keeps the DPCs within the
range required for streaming video and audio.

Hi,
I have similar behaviour when I start DXLabs, TX is OFF, so Commander shows
"000000". In that case, all filters in SC are not working.
By starting the TX, Commander shows a QRG, and them, filtering in SC works.
is it the same?

In SpotCollector's "Band Filter" window, what boxes do you have checked?

Hi all,

Regarding the queries about SY2A and which calls mean Mt Athos, I have just received this from Kostas SV1DPI:

=============================SV1DPI===============================
According our new law, SY prefix will be used by the novice license. The first of them are on the air abt 1 month ago.
So we have
SV for category 1 except SV_number_x (repeaters) SY for Novice (not clear but normally the structure will be SY_number_xxx and later SY_number_xxxx) SW for foreign amateurs visiting Greece, except SW_number_x (repeaters) SX special calls SZ for clubs
J4 special calls
all above with number 5 are doecanese
all above with number 9 are Crete
There is not dedicated prefix for Mount Athos either now either in past!! Many programs has SY as default but it was and it is a big mistake. Also signing /A does not say Mount Athos. Just an Alternative location. Monk Apollo's original licence is from Eddessa (a town in North Greece) and this is why he uses /A. He is in his alternative location!!!
A list with calls used from Mount Athos
DJ5CQ/SV/A
DL7FT/SV/A
SV0BV/A
SV1DB/A
SV1DC/A
SV1ER/A
SV1GA/A
SV1IW/A
SV1JG/A
SV2ASP/A
SV2QO/SY
SV2RE/SY
SV2TX/SY
SV2UA/SY
SV2UF/SY
SV2WT/SY
SY/DJ6SI
SY1MA
SY2A (2000)
SY5MA (not sure for this)
=============================SV1DPI===============================

Just as an addendum to this, I checked my log, and see that I have worked SY2V (2009), and also SY2004P (2004), both of which are (correctly) logged as Greece.

As you will also see from the above, /A does NOT mean Athos, which is interesting, in that I would guess most folk will see any SV*xxx/A as Mt Athos.

Joe (W4TV), I hope this helps with the country file.
