Re: WSJT-X with Spotcollector + Gridtracker possible?

Markku SM5FLM
 

I have only looked at Gridtracker briefly. One function in it is showing map with award entity borders and what is confirmed or not. I know the same information is available in DXlab, but I like the visual presention in Gridtracker better, then the textual presentation i DXlab. (Or is this also possible in DXlab?) But this is only minor thing, and I will continue to use DXlab, which I think is a great software.

Congratulations, Dave.

It seems like I've been a DXLabs user forever!  My guess is since 2005.

My entire ham radio experience is enhanced by the software, and especially by the reflector.

There is no other group where you will find calm, considerate, detailed, respectful, and helpful comments.

Dave sets the tone ("All questions are welcomed, no matter how often they've been asked before.") and fortunately the
community follows his example. No flames, no RTFM, no snarky comments. Wouldn't it be nice if all groups were like DXLabs!

Thanks again Dave for all you do for ham radio.

73,

Bob WB2NVR

Google Earth - DXView

Rien Aarden
 

Hello Dave,
 
I have the following problem with Google Earth and DXview
After I have installed Google Earth
I go to DXView and then to the config
Enable Google Earth and then the Sync button
then I get the message that an app on the PC needs to be opened to open Google Earth.
What can I do best to resolve this problem Dave?
Of course I have already uninstalled Google Earth several times
and on newly installed unfortunately the same message every time and Google Earth does not open immediately.
 
Thanks in advance for your help Dave grt
Rien, PA7RA


Re: Where to start?

+ AA6YQ comments below

AS Dave suggested I started with COMMANDER. I use WIN4Yaesu to control my FTdx5000.
I connected Commander to one of the WIN4 com0com ports. Since I know nothing abt DXKEEPER I connected LOGic 9 to another WIN4 com0com port. When I change the freq. on any of the 3 (WIN4, LOGic 9, or Commander) the others change also. Plus COMMANDER tells %of RF pwr.

I still have a lot of study of the COMMANDER to do.
I am a happy camper.

One Quick question.

Will DXLabs support using the Flex Tuning knob?

+ If SmartSDR is running, yes; if you don't have a Flex Signature radio, no.

+ Commander does support the Griffin Powermate:

Re: Complicated (?) problem

I'm using the programs that came on the original CD - and updates to the microHam program that you alerted me to. I will send you all my version(s) information separately, Joe. I can't believe this is anything other than "my own" problem, or microHam users would have been vocal long ago! It's got to be something (nearly) specific to me.... BUT (huge "but" or extra "t" in my case) I DO have another virtual port program installed..... Let me see what killing that does

+ I recommend killing and disabling the other virtual port program and then rebooting Windows.

Yes, I and many other users are running on Win 10 1909 without issue.

You may have an antivirus program interfering with the Eltima VSPAX
drivers used to create the virtual ports or another virtual serial
port package causing issues.  Are you trying to use another virtual
port package?

Re: DXComnander Logging VFO B

Was hitting the wrong tab. Your suggestion of the temp swap of VFO's works fine. Thanks.

There is no way to thank Dave enough for all the work he does!

But I'll say THANK YOU DAVE anyway. He has spent a lot of time helping me with both direct answers and pointing out the right sections in the manual for even more info.

And the price never increases either!!!

I tried that and that would work however for me the VFO's swap for a split second then go back . Is there a setting to make the VFO's hold the swap and then manually swap after logging ?

+ I don’t have an FTDX-101MP, but the ops who helped me test Commander's support for the FTDX-101MP reported that its MxS button was working correctly. When I test it here (with no actual radio), clicking the "M x S" button causes Commander to send three CAT commands to the radio:

SV; - which directs the radio to swap VFOs

FA; - which directs the radio to report the (new) Main VFO frequency

MD0; - which directs the radio to report the (new) Main VFO mode


+ Please do the following:

1. set your radios Main VFO to 7005 in CW

2. set your radio's Sub VFO to 14200 in USB

3. on the General tab of Commander's Configuration window, check the "log debugging info" box

4. on Commander's Main window, click the VFO panel's "M x S" button

5. on the General tab of Commander's Configuration window, uncheck the "log debugging info" box

6. attach the errorlog.txt file from your Commander folder to an email message, and the message to me via

aa6yq (at) ambersoft.com
