Re: Paid version of DXL?

A friend who is far more experienced in amateur radio than I am recently mentioned there is a free and a paid version of the DXL suite. In using this software over the last two years I have yet to see this distinction in any of the DXL documentation. AFAIK, DXL exists only in a free version. I am guessing my friend is confusing DXL with HRD. Who is right?

+ The DXLab Suite has always been free, and will always be free. I do this because I enjoy developing software in direct collaboration with users.

+ I am occasionally asked if I accept contributions. Contributions like these are gratefully accepted:

1. reports of possible defects in DXLab applications

2. reports of possible defects in DXLab application documentation or "Getting Started with DXLab"

3. suggested enhancements to DXLab applications

4. suggested improvements to DXLab application documentation or "Getting Started with DXLab"

5. reviews in <https://www.eham.net/reviews/view-product?id=3139>

+ If you absolutely must make a monetary contribution, I recommend St. Jude's Children's Hospital: they do excellent medical work with modest administrative overhead.

Rick -

I have never heard of ANYONE paying for the DXLab suite of AWESOME software. I know that thousands of hams are very grateful to Dave for his kindness and generosity. 

I have been a user for a fair number of years... and it sure blows away the other 3 or 4 logging programs I paid for over the past 30 years or so.

Re: Prop View

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

I'm having issues with Prop View. There was some sort of system upset for Prop View. I reset most of the switches.

+ The recommended action when this happens is to direct the DXLab Launcher to restore PropView's settings from the Workspace you
directed the Launcher to create when all of your DXLab applications were configured to your satisfaction. This action is described
in the "Loading the Windows Registry with One Selected DXLab Application's Settings from a Workspace" section of

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

But I am left with a message "No Availability Specified" and I can't seem to find how to fix this so Propagation data is not coming
through. Any ideas?

+ In the Conditions panel on PropView's Main window's Parameters tab, set the Avail to the desired availability. This is described
in step 6.d of

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

+ Consult the description of "Avail %" in the "Conditions panel" section of <
https://www.dxlabsuite.com/propview/Help/Operation.htm> to determine the appropriate value.

Script is FFMA.txt in /DXKeeper/Scripts ...

It has been included with DXKeeper for several (five?)
years.

FFMA.txt filters the log for girds required for the FFMA
award on six meters, runs the VUCC Progress report and
displays the report. A copy of the Progress report is
saved in /DXKeeper/Reports ...

There's a script that will generate a report. Not sure if it's
documented anywhere, but it should be in DXKeeper's "scripts"
directory - just run it to get the report.

Re: WSJT-X and Commander

another option is to press the "Monitor" button on the WSJT-X main window before minimizing, that will cease active CAT control until "Monitor" is enabled again by pressing the button. The same procedure is recommended if you briefly wish to QSY to a spot in another mode, e.g. phone or CW, using SpotCollector. Depending on the options chosen in the WSJT-X "Settings->General" panel you can control how WSJT-X recovers when "Monitor" is re-enabled, i.e. it can return to the last monitored frequency automatically if you wish.

I instrumented Commander to display the directives being received from WSJT-X 2.1.2. Whether the WSJT-X Monitor button is active (green) or inactive (gray), WSJT-X continuously directs Commander to report its frequency, mode, and split status. If the radio's Split is enabled, WSJT-X will send Commander "change frequency" directives, whether Monitor is disabled or enabled.

Until Bill G4WJS and I sort out why this is happening, I suggest that WSJT-X be terminated when you are operating in any mode that doesn't employ WSJT-X.

Re: Default Mode Change When Going from HF to Satellite and Back to HF

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

Between satellite passes I work HF, mostly FT8 but some CW and SSB as well. One of the things I forget is that when I switch to SatPC32 as the radio the code sets the Propagation Mode to SAT, When I go back to HF if I don't remember to reset the Propagation mode to F2 as the default I then have HF Q's with SAT and no name for the satellite. The Add Requested for LoTW reminds of that and I fix it so it isn't a big deal.

I am just wondering if there is a setting I have missed that would change the default propagation mode back to F2 when I go back to HF.

+ There is no such setting.

I am just wondering if there is a setting I have missed that would change the default propagation mode back to F2 when I go back to HF.
