Asking for guidance before I totally screw something up....

Turned on the shack computer this morning, started Launcher as usual. DXK is the first to start...window pops up: DXKeeper did not open in 180 seconds (or something like that). Launcher goes on to open DXV and SC. Button under DXK is still red, so I click again. "DXKeeper is already running on this computer." ??? After about 30 seconds, up pops DXK! So, I figure a minor glitch and move on.

Later this afternoon, started the shack machine again. This time a similar sequence, but DXK never came up. Tried to terminate it via Launcher - even with CTRL-click, and got the message "wait for DXKeeper to start" (or something like that). Rebooted, all that sort of thing (multiple times). Turned on error logging in Launcher, started again...same thing. Only this time after about 5 minutes, UP pops DXK! I've saved my log (again), but not tried a restore of WS on the fear I'll screw up the last good save.

Ideas? Anything obvious (that clearly isn't obvious to me)?

+ This is a diagnostic procedure:

1. reboot Windows into "Safe mode with networking"

2. start the Launcher

3. direct the Launcher to start DXKeeper (or allow it to start DXKeeper, if that's how you have the Launcher configured)

4. does DXKeeper start?

Re: PSK

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

Is there a way to get Commander & DXKeeper to recognize when an IC-7851 radio is directly switched to PSK31 or PSK63 mode to use the radio's internal modem (instead of using WinWarbler), so as to automatically set these as the modes for log entries?

+ There's not. My advice is to use WinWarbler for PSK operations.

Minor CAPTURE editing tweak request for DXKeeper

Neil W3ZQI
 

Hello Dave:
  My belated congratulations to you for your ARRL President's Award.  Outstanding! 
  A minor tweak to DXKeeper would be appreciated.
  - When pasting a Callsign into the DXKeeper Capture CALL field, the LOOKUP is successful.  However, when LOG is pressed, the error "Callsign is invalid" occurs.  Recreation of the situation is by pasting (not typing) a Callsign that has a trailing space.
  The pasting scenario occurs on my local PC instance of DXKeeper as a result of using TeamViewer to a remote instance of WSJT-X.  It is possible that other hidden characters may appear in the pasting string.
Many thanks and 73,
Neil W3ZQI


Re: RAT for DXCC and TOP progress

Dave AA6YQ
 

Scott, my explanation below is incorrect: DXKeeper does compute and display DXCC award credits granted to QSOs in the “user-specified digital mode family”.

The discrepancy between "Verified Including deleted" and "Verified Excluding deleted" is the result of a defect in DXKeeper -- an oversight when I added support for the “user-specified digital mode family”; thanks for reporting it! I have corrected this defect in the next version of DXKeeper, and sent this version your way.

73,

Dave, AA6YQ


I understand. I also understand the display of specific digital mode families is merely to "to support the user's personal objectives". I was more questioning the discrepancy between Verified Including deleted and Verified Excluding deleted.

But as you said, it does not matter for Awards.

When I do a summary from the Realtime Award Display on the DXCC Progress it correctly shows number of Verified for FT8 Including deleted but it shows 0 Verified for Excluding deleted. Is this by design? I have FT8 selected as User-specified digital mode family. Checking and unchecking the FT8 box produces the same results.

See https://sites.google.com/site/radion9ljx/home/dxcc-totals for an example.

+ The DXCC award program does not include an FT8-specific award, so no FT8-specific DXCC credits are granted by the ARRL. Unless that changes, the Verified column for FT8 will be 0.

Re: Tracking SatPC32 frequencies and sending to SDR Console

+ AA6YQ comments below

Thanks for the response Dave. Any chance this could be considered in a future release of Commander?

The reason I want to do this is to use SDR Console (could be any SDR app) along with my Icom 9700 primarily to follow the Rx frequency. It would be tied into the Rx antenna in order to get a decent panadapter/waterfall display. The 9700 is pretty poor in that area and the "scope" function of SatPC32 isn't much better due to the "audio" nature of the input rather than an IF input that would provide much more detail.

+ I am travelling without access to a radio; otherwise, I'd have extended Commander last night.

Re: Two instances of DXK

Jacob Derenne
 

I ran 2 instances of DX Suite on 2 different hard drives using WIN 10 with 2 callsigns

1 was a 32 bit of WIN 10    

1 was a 64 bit of WIN 10

 

But in essence it was 2 different OP systems incorporated on 1 computer, but it did serve the

purpose for the short term situation. That was my solution to the issues I had

Re: Two instances of DXK

You don't need to do it that way.
Using work spaces is recommended.
This allows configuring 1 workspace for each callsign... 
 
Then swap between workspaces to change callsigns.
