I think this is the replacement page:

10.2.1. The Cabrillo file <http://www.kkn.net/~trey/cabrillo/> format and specifications. (This link takes one to the generic "Cabrillo Specification" page at:)

Re: DXK Logs Wrong Rcv Freq

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

NO! THERE IS NO "PROBLEM" WITH JTALERT.

The issue is that WSJTX supplies *ONLY ONE FREQUENCY* in it's "QSO
Logged" UDP Message. You would find the same result from *direct*
integration between WSJTX and DXKeeper/SpotCollector.

Here is the documentation of the "QSO Logged" UDP message:

* QSO Logged Out 5 quint32
* Id (unique key) utf8
* Date & Time Off QDateTime
* DX call utf8
* DX grid utf8
* Tx frequency (Hz) quint64
* Mode utf8
* Report sent utf8
* Report received utf8
* Tx power utf8
* Comments utf8
* Name utf8
* Date & Time On QDateTime
* Operator call utf8
* My call utf8
* My grid utf8
* Exchange sent utf8
* Exchange received utf8
If you want separate TX and RX frequencies *DON'T USE* the WSJTX
"QSO Logged" UDP Message (either via direct WSJTX integration or
JTAlert), instead *IMPORT* the WSJTX ADIF log. Otherwise,
complain to the WSJTX developers about the lack of TX_Freq,
RX_Freq *AND* TX_Offset, RX_Offset.

Whew, glad I found that. I've been losing hours of sleep not knowing what/where the replacement page is!

I really like the new Capture Window configuration settings.  However, I am not used to the Comment/QSL Message text box always defaulting to QSL Message instead of Comment.  
 
I keep forgetting and fill in the usual box with text that becomes a QSL Message instead of a Comment.  With time I am sure I can train myself to click on the "~" button to go to Comment.
 
It would be nice if it defaulted to Comment.  It would be nicer to just have only Comment and not have QSL Message at all in that text box.

+ "Failure to retain previous Comment/QSLMsg state" is a defect that has been corrected in the next version of DXKeeper.

Re: DXKeeper QSO Upload Issue

TQSL start date is 2021-06-30. End date is 2024-06-29 I just now instructed TQSL to create a backup using "help/backuprestore. Never used that tool before Queried Groups. Found one called "QSLing Online". Joined yesterday. No answer to my "TQSL Paraphrase" question

+ That group is dead, Jim - the last time anyone posted there was 9 months ago.

None of these explains why DXK QSO uploading is asking for a "TQSL Paraphrase" What is that? Where would I find it? It is new to me.

+ DXKeeper directs TQSL to upload your QSOs to LoTW. TQSL is asking for a "passphrase" to unlock your Callsign Certificate, which you evidently protected with a password. Have you successfully submitted QSOs to LoTW since renewing your Callsign Certificate on 2021-06-30 ?

Re: Commander question/request

Dave AA6YQ
 

Please add "read" command to set inizial status of user-defined controls, to be executes when commander is launched to refresh the controls status at initial value.

+ Commander supports more than 120 transceiver models, many of which support at least 10 slider-controllable parameters, and some of which support hundreds of such parameters. Providing what you request for an IC-7300 alone would take weeks - and that would be faster than typical because I own an IC-7300 and so could immediately test my work.

+ You can define an "Initial Command Sequence" that employs <Slider S, V> commands to set each of your user-defined sliders to a reasonable value, putting the radio's slider-controlled parameters in sync with Commander's sliders. See

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/commander/Help/CommandSequences.htm#Command%20Sequences

+ and

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/commander/Help/Configuration.htm#Initial%20Command%20Sequence

+ An "Initial Command Sequence" can also send CAT commands to put parameters controlled by user-defined sequences in a desired state, and set sequence button names and sequence LED colors to match using <Name Q, text> and <LED Q, color> commands respectively.

Dave - typo.   DXK upload is looking for a "TQS passphrase" not "paraphrase".  I never recorded a "passphrase" when I received new certificate in June.

Suddenly, yesterday, I am unable to upload requested QSO.s to LOTW via DXK QSL tab.  I have a valid TQSL tq6 certificate.  Starting yesterday when attempting to upload requested QSO's, I get a request to upload my "TQSL Paraphrase". I have no idea what this is and have no recollection of creating it.  I am also embarrased to say I cannot find p12 key.

+ Did you ever direct TQSL to create a backup, as described here?

+ Please start TQSL, select its Main window's "Callsign Certificates" tab, click on the entry for your Callsign Certificate, and display its properties. What expiration date is shown in the small "Callsign Certificate Properties" window that appears?

Re: DXK Logs Wrong Rcv Freq

Dale Drake
 

Thanks Joe,  I changed JTAlert to log to its own ADIF file and it showed the rcv freq the same so I'm thinking the DXK is fine.  I've been using the older version of JTAlert because I can't get the .NET 5 to run on my PC for some reason which is needed for the latest JTAlert version.  The weird thing is that before July 10th my DXK logs show the rcv freq correctly but I made no changes to JTAlert.  I have WSJT-X settings split set to fake it because my rig and Commander don't react fast enough in split operation set to rig in WSJT-X.  I've always run it that way.  I posted my trouble the the Ham Apps group so maybe I'll get the help I need there.  Thanks again.

JTAlert 2.16.17 is badly out of date. The current version is 2.50.2

At first I thought that I had changed something in JTAlert or WSJT-X
to cause this but looking back in the log it started happening after
I update DXK to ver 16.1.9. so now I'm wondering if that may be
related.
My WSJTX 2.4.0/2.5.0-rc3 and JTAlert 2.50.2 system also logs the
TX and RX frequencies the same. AFAIK, that is the way they are
reported by WSJTX.

I am hoping someone in this group can help.with this "Paraphrase"
issue.
tQSL "passphrase" is the old password for your certificate.

See: <http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/LotWRemovePassword> in the
DxLab Wiki.

This information has been around for about as long as LotW <G>.
