your relocation activated the mouse wheel.

Hello All

I am using PSTrotator with DXlab as my tracker.

Not sure if this is a PSTrotator issue or a dxlab issue or just my stupidity but will post to PSTrotator forum if no info on the problem can be found here

Dave,
Sounds great; only wish I could attend.

Is there any plan to include your review and summarize the "techniques, critique, and suggested improvements" in a document that can be shared with those of use unable to attend? Since the major sunspot decline I have not been as active on DX and hence have not followed all the recent improvements.
Have been using DXLabs since shortly after its introduction, and now have CW 7BDXCC due in significant part to the record keeping of DXKeeper and use of SpotCollector.

Thanks for all your help in past, present and future.

Re: zoom DXLab windows?

+ AA6YQ comments below

I have 55" 4k, 31" 3440x1440 and 24" 1920x1024 and have been struggling with these issues and windows going away. I have a Nvidia card and will take a look at solutions. B4 had 4 1920x1024 and got spoiled with no issues!

+ And you reduced your total pixel capacity from 7.9 megapixels to 6.9 megapixels, a 13% loss.

Would be interested in how others solve these problems.

+ Consider this procedure:

1. Determine the number of (native resolution) pixels you need to display all of the windows you wish to be able to see simultaneously. Provide some capacity for "transient" windows.

2. Determine the physical size of the monitor(s) required to make the contents of those pixels readable to your eyes; if you are over 50, err on the side of acquiring physically larger monitors, as your eyes will appreciate it as you age. See

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/MonitorsForOldEyes>

3. Before purchasing a monitor, check the professional reviews (e.g. Tom's Hardware, the WireCutter).

4. If you're planning to use an existing video controller, confirm that it can support your new monitor(s); if you're planning to purchase a new video controller, check the professional reviews.


+ I use a single 30" flat Dell display whose native resolution is 2560 x 1600. It's pixel capacity is great, and my 67-year-old eyes find all of the text readable, but the distance from my eyes to either edge of this monitor is 50% greater than the distance from my eyes to the center of this monitor, which results in "focus shifting". The next time I upgrade, it will be to a curved display, or to a pair of 27" displays at an angle to each other.

Re: Icom time set

+ AA6YQ comments below

I turned on the time set function and it messed up my clock settings in the 7851.

I currently have the top clock display set to local 12 hr time and the bottom time display set to UTC. Commander sets the top time
to UTC time and that messes up the bottom display so both are wrong.

+ That's why this functionality can be disabled!

Have just joined IOTA and looking at my contacts to see what awards I qualify for, but I have run in to a problem. I have looked in the documentation and in previous posts and could not find the information I need, any help to point me in the right direction would be appreciated. When I run my progress and real time reports for the IOTA award, the report sometimes shows my unverified or unconfirmed  worked contacts and other times shows my confirmed contacts for the islands. For example I have about 8 different contacts with the canary islands, about half are confirmed but the report only shows one of my unconfirmed contacts. When I look at my other reports (e.g. DXCC ) they show my confirmed contacts and only show unconfirmed if that is all there is for the award. Not sure what I am missing but the report skips some of my confirmed contacts. As so many others have said on here, it is probably something simple that with one click I can fix, but it has eluded me so far.Thanks again.

Re: OT - Windows 10

ART W2NRA
 

Hi Peter,

Thanks you for the reply.

I didn’t make myself clear.  I was referring to when I shut down my computer.  Not when a Windows update shuts it down and reboots. 

When I shut down my computer and have left apps open (Like Microsoft Excel or Word) then the next time I start that app I have to figure out which “Recovered” file  is the one I want.  

I just want Windows 10 to remind me that I left a program running before it shuts, like Windows 7 or earlier versions of Windows 10 did. My monitor is almost 3 feet wide. It’s easy to miss a highlighted Icon on the taskbar.
