Just an observation, but if your log has that many Q’s; it’s going to take a very long time to process by the LoTW servers. I don’t know that a faster PC will make any difference.

I’m in the market for a new computer and am considering one with a NVMe SSD hard disk rather than a “normal” SSD.  With 175k QSOs in my DXK log, downloading from LoTW and updating the log takes time.  From what I read, the NVMe is a screamer compared with a SATA SSD.

 

Does anyone have experience with this?  Thanks

NVME M.2 is vastly faster and more efficient than SATA M.2. Get NVME by all means. I run 2x 2GB NVME M.2 on an Intel NUC Hades Canyon.

Let WSJT-X control the radio. Turn off DXC. WSJT-X will send the completed QSO to DXK.

+ If you don't run Commander, none of your other DXLab applications will have access to your transceiver's frequency and mode.

+ Run Commander and configure WSJT-X to use Commander for transceiver control, as described here:

+ There are two "styles" of interoperation between DXLab and WSJT-X: direct, and via JTAlert. In both styles, QSOs logged via WSJT-X
are recorded by DXKeeper.

+ The two styles are described here:

Can someone try to make this work, and if you are successful, tell me what you did?

I read and read and tried everything I could think of trying.

I want Spot Collector to alert me when a certain call is spotted.

you know like W9ET SSB on 14235  etc.

I do not want to hear anything else just the spot for the one call.

no "DX!" or any other voicings.  just the spot when the one call appears.

+ First, add W9ET to SpotCollector's "Special Callsign List" with a tag of

friend

+ Then on the "Audio Alarm" tab of SpotCollector's Configuration window,

1. in the "Audio Alarm Trigger" panel, click the "Needed" button

2. set the large textbox to the right of the "SQL expression" button to

tags='friend'

3. in the "Audio Alarm Trigger" panel, click the "SQL expression" button

4. check the Enable box in the upper-left corner

Re: Error when opening Spot Collector

Mario Aviles
 

Good evening Group, problem solved and the solution was quite simple, it was not on Spot Collector it was on Pathfinder. 
For future reference, if you get a script error message upon opening PathFInder, go to CONFIG and at the very bottom there is a Internet Explorer: Emulation section, just press UPDATE EMULATION and that solved the problem

Thanks Dave for your help

Can I shut that part off for now so I only hear an announcement when the filtered call pops up?

+ You can control what is announced via the "Audio Alarm" tab on SpotCollector's Configuration window. See

I went here and fololowed as closely as possible. But the "DX!" is still constantly announcing.

Sorry.

I am re-installing everything into a new computer and have succeed totally so far.

I'm missing something tho, I to test I entered in a single call in the filter window, and clicked on the "Call" button, so it looks
like it will only display info when that call gets spotted. Looks good.

But I would also, like to get an audio announcement when it appears.

I think I have that set up.
