I assume that the next database upgrade will reflect the changes?
Yes, an update is in preparation.

Is there anything I need to do to my existing log to reflect the
change to the new (E6A-E6Z)?
You will need to perform a "Recompute" on the log after installing
the DXCC database update. There is no need for any change to the
current data.

Hi,
by using Winkeyer2 software, it sends "clrPTT" [N].

There is no clrPTT command mentioned in the Winkeyer2 (v23) datasheet. Do
you mean "PTT Off", which is <18><0> ?

Hi Dave, I installed them into DXlab folder outside the program folder. I just downloaded the newest versions and unzipped. I didn’t use the Dxlab manager to download and install.

Downloading and unzipping the latest version of a DXLab application does not install that application.
I suggest that you use the Launcher to install Pathfinder and Commander.

Re: How to verify SC Spots of mine actually go to Internet?

On Monday Dave might have said:

There is no way to spot automatically decoded PSK signals to the DX cluster
network. You can, however, use the Spot button in WinWarbler's "QSO Info"
panel to easily generate a DX cluster network spot for any station you
decode or work.
ok .. and following that, I see
http://www.dxlabsuite.com/winwarbler/Help/Logging.htm#Generating%20DX%20Spots

narrows the question of spots down, as you mentioned.

I knew about this path to 'Spots'. Somehow I was thinking the
reception/decoding was also like a "Skimmer".

No worries for me. It was only a curiosity as I watched the collected
spots from the cluster mixed with what I was receiving and
'spotting' .

Subject: [dxlab] Dupes


I installed DXLab on my second computer. I exported then imported the log
on my original machine just to a have second location and now I see many
dupes. Is there a way to delete dupes (keeping one QSO)or at least run a
report so I can do it manually? Not sure how this happened but I want to
straighten out the log. Thank you.

If you followed the procedure for moving DXLab from one PC to another as
described in

<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/MovingBetweenPCs>

you would have a full copy of your log on your second PC. If you then
exported an ADIF file from your first PC and imported that file on your
second PC, that would explain the duplicates.

The easiest way to correct this would be to
1. terminate DXKeeper on your second PC

2. copy the log file from your first PC to your second PC

3. start DXKeeper on your second PC


Alternatively, the procedure for eliminating duplicate QSOs is described
in

Re: How to verify SC Spots of mine actually go to Internet?

Dave AA6YQ
 

As described in

<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/winwarbler/Help/BroadbandDecode.htm>

WinWarbler has the ability to decode all PSK signals on the band.
WinWarbler's Broadband PSK Decoder provides an option (which you evidently
have enabled) to create a local spot when a new PSK signal is decoded.
"Local spot" means an entry is created in SpotCollector's Spot Database; no
"DX spot" is sent to the DX cluster network.

There is no way to spot automatically decoded PSK signals to the DX cluster
network. You can, however, use the Spot button in WinWarbler's "QSO Info"
panel to easily generate a DX cluster network spot for any station you
decode or work.

As I understand it, "PSK Reporter" is not connected to the DX cluster
network.

Dunno if I phrased that correctly.

Simply put, as I am in the process of learning WinWarbler, I see spots
decoded by me appear in SpotCollector as "Local".

In 'Config', I have DXSPOTS enabled and its "Spot" button is active.

Next I go to pskreporter.info and look for any spots posted by my
callsign. But I see none.

If I transmit, eventually, usually soon, I will see the psk-reporter
stations who heard me. However, that has nothing to do with
SpotCollector , which is obvious.

So how do I get my local spots to get posted somewhere on the
Internet?

thanks

p.s. Thanks Dave or the links to help me be able to actually make
contacts. That part is working nicely now.

The Intel SSDs have some nice health monitoring software that you can run to
show you how the drive is doing.



I have the following setups:



1. Small 40GB Intel SSD on my main system for paging file and browser
temp files (Win XP)

2. 120 GB Samsung SSD on my laptop (Win 7)

3. 120 GB Intel SSD on my netbook (Win 7) - really makes the netbook
come to life



Plus, do not defrag an SSD

Don't know about number of rewrites but check your motherboard and
operating system carefully before trying to add a SSD.

There is limited support for SSD in Windows XP - it lacks TRIM so
is not efficient in allocation of space. Second be careful with
interface specifications - I purchased an SSD for my main system
but its interface was SATA3 (6 Gb) only and the the motherboard
only supported SATA (1.5 Gb) and SATA2 (3 Gb). I selected the drive
I did based on reliability information as the older SSDs with the
SATA/SATA 2 interfaces appeared to be substantially less reliable
than the current generation of devices.
