Peter,


Please keep us informed as to the install of CWGet, I too was wanting to get rid of my PK232 (for the real estate) and use CWGet but didn't want to install and older runtime environment on my Win7 machine.

If I understand Dave correctly, the runtime isn't needed if you have DXLabs installed?

I would like to run this but I worry when I see things on the page
like "You will need the Visual Basic 5.0 runtime environment on your
computer" (with an URL that has "win98" in the path) and "Testing on
a Windows 7 computer produced mixed results. "

Is this no longer actively maintained? Is it safe to use?

It's not quite off-topic if you reference the N1MM bridge application.

Looks like I can use DXLab's DXKeeper and use N1MM for CAT & Capture. My main goal is to log everything in DXKeeper and have an easy-to-submit log for the contest.

I'll try the combination this year and report back...

If you're going to use DXKeeper to generate a Cabrillo file after the contest, then you must log exchange information as specified in table and footnotes in
<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Contesting.htm>

I doubt that N1MM and N1MM-to-DKeeper bridge satisfy these requirements, so if you're using N1MM to log QSOs during the contest, you should also use it to generate the Cabrillo file after the contest. The point of updating DXKeeper with your contest QSOs -- either by using the N1MM-to-DXKeeper bridge during the contest, or by exporting an ADIF file from N1MM after the contest and importing it into your DXKeeper log -- is to keep DXLab's record of what you've worked accurate and complete. This enables SpotCollector to correctly identify active DX stations with whom a QSO would advance progress towards the awards you are pursuing, and enables DXKeeper to correctly generate outgoing QSL cards/labels requesting confirmation of QSOs that would advance progress towards the awards you are pursuing.

I strongly suspect that having any DXLab application installed fulfills this prerequisite. I don’t recall anyone ever reporting a problem here, nor has my testing revealed any problems.

Its author - Dick W3OA - is very responsive to requests for assistance. No further functional enhancement is needed, in my opinion.

Re: Sync LotW QSLs error

Dave AA6YQ
 

Converting that error code to hexadecimal yields 80090305.

Googling this error code mostly yields articles about it occurring during a Windows Update; it appears to mean "internet connection interrupted". My first suggestion is to reboot Windows, and try again.

What version of Internet Explorer do you have installed?

Can't get Launcher to work today

ciezniakpaul@...
 

This morning when I double-clicked on the Launcher icon on my desktop, the Launcher app box opened but nothing else launched. The small "config" box on Launcher was partially obscured with a printed message "Unable to launch, etc.... the file does not exist". Trying to launch any other DXLab application from the desktop icons also failed to bring up anything.


I have been using the downloaded Win 10 OS since mid-2015 with no problems. I've tried the hard reboot twice today on this PC with no effect on this Launcher issue. All other programs on my PC seem to work fine.


Is anyone else experiencing similar behavior?

spot collector filter

Is there a way to specify a country prefix to filter out from DX spots?  I’m tired of the bogus spots for P5.

 

Thanks,

The best way to copy CW is to learn it yourself.  The CWops CW Academy has graduated many new CW operators and best of all it’s free.  For more information, see http://www.cwops.org/cwacademy.html

 

The graduation rate is more than 80%!

Two issues for me:
1. I put the shift to 170 but when I check it later, it has 169 there; this is a consistent issue.
2. Terminating from the Launcher window does not terminate WW.8.6.4.
I only had Commander and WW active.

See my previous response in
<https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/dxlab/conversations/messages/158054>


I have yet to decode any signals; I don't see anything there on the specified 40m bands.

Use SpotCollector to determine when and where RTTY stations are being spotted by stations near your QTH:
1. filter the Spot Database Display with the SQL expression

(Mode='RTTY') and (ODX < 500)

2. click the Prop button beneath the Main window's "Spot Source Status" panel (at the top of the Window)

3. In SpotCollector's Propagation window, click the "DX in Spot Database Display" panel's Analyze button

Double-clicking a bar in the generated chart will filter the Spot Database Display to show the DX stations and their operating frequencies.
I don't know where you were looking on 40m, but the 7 RTTY stations spotted by stations within 500 miles of my QTH (near Boston) over the last day or two were operating between 7035 and 7045.

I have three issues that I can not figure out how to handle in WW-8.6.4:

1. WW...Configuration window...tab-RTTY
The shift came up 169; I change it to 170.
When I come back to it, it is back to 169.

Set the Shift to 170 on the Configuration window's RTTY tab, and then click the Def button in the Main window' s "RTTY receive" panel.
2. "2Tone Settings" window The display width came up 1292; I changed it to 3000. When I come back to it; it is back to 1292.

The 2Tone.pdf document present in your WinWarbler folder states
"The displayed band width can be adjusted, click on Setup button, between 449 and 1292Hz at 45.45 baud centred on the tone pair."

Evidently specifying a value greater than 1292 Hz sets the "Display width" to 1292 Hz.
3. When I shut down DXLab via Laucher's 'terminate' button, WW does not shut down.

What version of Windows are you running?
When you start WinWarbler from the Launcher, does the "LED-like display" beneath the Launcher's WW button change from Red to Light Blue when you the WW button, and the change from Light Blue to Green when WinWarbler's Main window appears on screen ?

1. WW...Configuration window...tab-RTTY
The shift came up 169; I change it to 170.
When I come back to it, it is back to 169.

2. "2Tone Settings" window

When I come back to it; it is back to 1292.

3. When I shut down DXLab via Laucher's 'terminate' button, WW does not shut down. 

Not that it is relevant to the above in any way, but I am able to decode PSK31 using WW.
There was a QSO last evening between a USA ham and Venezuela.

WinWarbler does not include an integral CW decoder, as it does for RTTY and PSK31. However, there are several ways for WinWarbler to display decoded CW:
1. if you use an Elecraft K3 or KX3, WinWarbler can display the CW decoded by the transceiver:

<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/K3CWRTTYXcv>

2. if you have an external HF modem (PK-232, KAM, MFJ, etc.) connected to your transceiver, WinWarbler can display the CW decoded by this modem:

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

3. you can run the application CWGet and a "bridge" developed by Dick W3OA to enable WinWarbler to display the CW decoded by CWGet:

Wild Card Filter for Spot Collector

I’m tired of the bogus spots for P5 and would like to filter them out but I can’t find a wild card filter character.  Is there a way to filter P5 anything?  If there is a real P5 operation I’m sure everyone will know and that would be a time to remove this filter.  Until then it’s not a case of hope springs eternal but rather a case of don’t bother me with junk.
