Was accesing via Pathfinder Dave. Im ok on my laptop and Desktop on Chrome, just not pathfinder.

+ Pathfinder is an instance of Internet Explorer with QSL-oriented Search buttons added. The error message is coming from Internet Explorer.

Does it really matter when you upload to LotW. It is the data I the log that counts isn't it?

Re: VFO Display swapping in Commander and causing issue with WSJT

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

I upgraded to the latest DXCommander (14.4.0) Since the upgrade The Commander VFO now displays the active VFO on the left. Previously the main was always on the left and the Sub on the right. Not which ever one is active auto moves to the left. This stops WSJT working as it aligns with the VFO on the left of the Commander display.

+ Which make and model transceiver is Commander controlling, Stewart?

I wanted to go back to a previous version before the update and deleted the new exe file. The old version started working correctly, no more swapping VFO issue and WSJT worked a treat. When I rebooted the computer the new version updated came back as did the VFO issue.

+ The DXLab Launcher does not have the ability to automatically upgrade a DXLab application. Is the file

CI-V Commander 1431.exe

+ still present in your Commander folder? If so, run it until we get the issue with Commander 14.4.0 sorted.

Those three in various combinations would work for me!

+ Re "in various combinations", here's an example of what I have in mind:

+ Say you've checked the 80m, FT4, EU, AF, AS, OC, and SA "pre-filtering" boxes:

- all incoming 80m spots would be discarded, regardless of mode or origin

- all FT4 spots would be discarded, regardless of band or origin

- all spots by stations in EU, AF, AS, OC, and SA would be discarded, regardless of band or mode

Hi Dave. It varies. I have two QTHs. One is rather "capable" station-wise; the other is less so (but the WX is better) ;<). I have a fair idea of what i can hear from both locations, although I'm sometimes surprised (that's consistent with a point I think you've made in the past). So, I change the parameters a bit depending on where I am. SC has a ultra-capable ability to filter stuff I don't want/can't hear. But there is some stuff I don't want to GET to SC. The fire hose can be crippling -- particularly when stations from all over the planet are feeding FT4/8 spots.

So, to your question ... My experience tells me that if I limit the "spot input" to SC for FT4/8 spots to North America that seems to be satisfactory. If someone in Brazil can hear them but not a single station in NA has it's rather unlikely I will either. I have another VE7CC installation where the fish/spot net is cast more broadly. For CW, I want to cover a broader area, Greenland, Iceland, Northern SA, etc. For phone/RTTY/other spots, I see no need to pre-filter at all; the load on SC is negligible for these, regardless of their source. (Obviously, for 6m spots, well, that's a different issue.)

+ Thanks, Rick. You're far from the only DXLab user that "pre-filters" (discards some spots before they are added to the Spot Database). There is pre-filtering capability in SpotCollector, but it's limited to discarding spots of a specified callsign and discarding spots by a specified callsign:

VFO Display swapping in Commander and causing issue with WSJT

Stuart - VK6MK
 

Hi All

I upgraded to the latest DXCommander  (14.4.0) Since the upgrade   The Commander VFO now displays the active VFO on the left. Previously the main was always on the left and the Sub on the right.  Not which ever one is active auto moves to the left. This stops WSJT working as it aligns with the VFO on the left of the Commander display.  I wanted to go back to a previous version before the update and deleted the new exe file.  The old version started working correctly, no more swapping VFO issue and WSJT worked a treat.  When I rebooted the computer the new version updated  came back as did the VFO issue.

Is it possible to stop the SUB and Main VFO swapping and keep the Main VFO on the left so WSJT stays happy?
I've probably activated the swap over but can't for the life of me work out how to get it back to how it was previously.

Any tips greatly appreciated.

Re: Pre-filtering

Rick
 

Dave: I think the three approaches you outlined below, in some combination, would be entirely satisfactory. And, thanks for the existing capabilities vis-a-vis pre-filtering. I have an ever-increasing list of "bad sources" -- those folks who insist on abusing the DX cluster, who create false spots, etc. That feature sure reduces "false alarms."

The proposed capability would allow me to reduce my "computer inventory" by two and kill the nailed-up VPNs used to reach them.

I have just noticed that behavior for the first time. It only goes to the top of the page of the most current spots, not to the beginning of the spot database.

Make sure you have a backup of your database.

Then filter then log page to display the QSOs you want to delete.

Control + click the Delete button to delete all QSOs currently shown on the log display.
