Re: DX-Keeper feature request

This would require changes to both SpotCollector and DXKeeper; I'll add it
to the list...

A feature request please for DX-Keeper.
In Configuration, General Options, the option to check for "auto-spot to
local Spot Collector on log". This way, when I log a call it will appear
on the band map . I click local spot now on Spot Collector to show the call
on my bandmap., but often forget to click on the local spot. This way I
know who I have worked at a glance.

Thanks John, N3WT

Problem with WW on RTTY

Charlie Morrison
 

Hi Group I am having a problem running RTTY in WW the problem seems to
be sampling rates.



My setup is Flex5000A under control of Commander, and audio via a pair of
virtual audio cables.



If I set the sampling to 48000 in PowerSDR, WW will decode ok on RX, but
will not TX Properly. This is because the MMTTY sample rate is 11025.

If I set sampling in PowerSDR to 11025, MMTTY will TX ok, but will not
decode on RX.



Both the VACs are set for sampling between 11025 and 96000



Anyone encounter a similar problem?



TIA



Charlie GI4FUE

It's a cross-band test. You listen on their freqs and they come back to you on the ham bands. (If I understand this event correctly!)

I saw the announcement somewhere else - ARRL? Not sure.

Got semi-excited until I saw that all those freqs are out-of-band. I
guess if you QSL them, it'll have to be as an SWL.

They've changed the date to this weekend to avoid the Dayton

Gee... I wonder if they'll be uploading their logs to eQSL and

ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO
COMMUNICATIONS TEST (10 MAY 2008)

The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are
co-sponsoring the annual military/amateur radio communications
tests
in celebration of the 58th Anniversary of Armed Forces Day (AFD).
Although the actual Armed Forces Day is celebrated on Saturday, May
17, 2008, the AFD Military/Amateur Crossband Communications Test
will
be conducted 10 May 2008 to prevent conflict with the Dayton
Hamvention (16-18 May 2008), which is the same weekend as the
actual
Armed Forces Day.

The annual celebration features traditional military to amateur
cross
band communications SSB voice tests and copying the Secretary of
Defense message via digital modes. These tests give Amateur Radio
operators and Short Wave Listeners (SWL) an opportunity to
demonstrate
their individual technical skills, and to receive recognition from
the
Secretary of Defense and/or the appropriate military radio station
for
their proven expertise. QSL cards will be provided to those
stations
making contact with the military stations. Special commemorative
certificates will be awarded to anyone who receives and copies the
digital Armed Forces Day message from the Secretary of Defense.

MILITARY-TO-AMATEUR CROSS BAND SSB TEST CONTACTS.
Military-to-Amateur cross band operations will take place on the
dates/times in ZULU (UTC), and frequencies listed below for each
station. Voice contacts will include operations in single sideband
voice (SSB). Some stations may not operate the entire period,
depending on propagation and manning. Participating military
stations
will transmit on selected Military MARS frequencies and listen for
amateur radio stations in the Amateur bands indicated below. The
military station operator will announce the specific amateur band
frequency being monitored. Duration of each voice contact should be
limited to 1-2 minutes. The following stations will be
transmitting on
MARS frequencies listed below which are provided as "Window/Dial
Frequency" in kHz.

SUBMISSION OF SECRETARY OF DEFENSE TEST MESSAGE ENTRIES.
Transcripts of the RTTY, PACTOR, AMTOR, PSK-31, MFSK and MT63
receiving test should be submitted "as received". No attempt
should be
made to correct possible transmission errors. Provide time,
frequency
and call sign of the military station copied, including name, call
sign, and address (including ZIP code) of individual submitting the
entry. Ensure this information is placed on the paper containing
the
test message. Each year a large number of acceptable entries are
received with insufficient information, or necessary information
was
not attached to the transcriptions and was separated, thereby
precluding issuance of a certificate. Entries must be sent to the
appropriate military address as follows:

a. Stations copying Secretary of Defense message transmitted from
AAZ
send entries to:

Is there a DXKeeper keyboard shortcut to move the cursor from the QSL section of the window to the Filter call sign field at the bottom of the DXKeeper window?

Thanks.

Re: Trouble with Slider 5

Dave AA6YQ
 

I recommend using DXKeeper's message window to record a trace of the
commands sent to your transceiver when slider 1 is used, and to record a
second trace of the commands sent to your transceiver when slider 5 is used.
Then compare the traces; do you see any difference(s)?

Subject: [dxlab] Trouble with Slider 5

I'm having a slight problem with Slider 5. I have it set up as Noise
Reduction and it works fine except every time I launch Commander I get junk
in Noise Reduction and Automatic Notch. I usually get a ? in Noise
Reduction and a > or another value other than 0 in Automatic Notch.

The commander for Noise Reduction also controls Noise Blanker and Automatic
Notch.

I have Slider 5 command as 2A4B00<5H1>000D. The first 00 is Noise Blanker
off. The <5H1> is the position for Noise Reduction. The 2nd 00 is Auto
Notch off.

I suspect my problem has to do with 3 commands at once and Commander not
initiating them on start up. I suspect the defect is a problem with The Ten
Tec Omni VII firmware. Also I don't get any errors if I load this slider in

1 thru 4. It only malfunctions in Slider 5 thru 8. Dave, what do you
think?

Per the Programmers Guide:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---
The Noise Blanker, Noise Reduction, and Automatic Notch are available for
use in all modes. They can be used individually or together.

Format: '*' 'K' <d2> <d1> <d0> <CR>
Where: '*' = the ASCII '*' symbol (0x2a)

K = the ASCII 'K' character (0x4B)
<d2> = Noise Blanker State (0=off action 1-7)
<d1> = Noise Reduction State (0=off action 1-9)
<d0> = Auto Notch State (0=off action 1-9)

Also, Commander just took 50 seconds... DX Keeper 2 minutes.

Re: WW <--> DXK Contest Mode Link Not Working

Dave AA6YQ
 

In title bar of DXKeeper's Main window, what letters appear between the
square braces? If WW is not present, then please terminate and restart
WinWarbler. Any change?

Subject: [dxlab] WW <--> DXK Contest Mode Link Not Working

Hi Dave,

The Contest Mode Link between WW (5.7.2) and DXK (6.5.3) seems to be broken.

In the past, If I enable/disabled contest mode within WW, DXK would
follow. Now DXK doesn't enter or leave contest mode and as a result a
Contest QSO will be flagged as a Dupe if a previous non-contest QSO's
with a station exists within DXK (if on same band).

I don't know how long this behaviour has been present since it has been
many months since I entered a contest.

At the moment, I have to enable/disable contest mode in both WW and DXK.

Wow, I can see how seriously o l d my hardware is getting! 1.4ghz with
only 384mb ram on XPSP3, open is Firefox, Commander, DXKeeper and Spot
Collector. After clicking WW it took just 4 seconds to open. This is a new,
fresh install of maybe 3 days ago.

Anyone else noticing that Winwarbler is taking a long time to load
these days? Sometimes it takes a full minute to appear after
executing the boot command,. 2.6 CPU with 1 gig of RAM here.

I saw the announcement somewhere else - ARRL? Not sure.

Got semi-excited until I saw that all those freqs are out-of-band. I
guess if you QSL them, it'll have to be as an SWL.

They've changed the date to this weekend to avoid the Dayton

Gee... I wonder if they'll be uploading their logs to eQSL and

ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO
COMMUNICATIONS TEST (10 MAY 2008)

The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard are
co-sponsoring the annual military/amateur radio communications
tests
in celebration of the 58th Anniversary of Armed Forces Day (AFD).
Although the actual Armed Forces Day is celebrated on Saturday, May
17, 2008, the AFD Military/Amateur Crossband Communications Test
will
be conducted 10 May 2008 to prevent conflict with the Dayton
Hamvention (16-18 May 2008), which is the same weekend as the
actual
Armed Forces Day.

The annual celebration features traditional military to amateur
cross
band communications SSB voice tests and copying the Secretary of
Defense message via digital modes. These tests give Amateur Radio
operators and Short Wave Listeners (SWL) an opportunity to
demonstrate
their individual technical skills, and to receive recognition from
the
Secretary of Defense and/or the appropriate military radio station
for
their proven expertise. QSL cards will be provided to those
stations
making contact with the military stations. Special commemorative
certificates will be awarded to anyone who receives and copies the
digital Armed Forces Day message from the Secretary of Defense.

MILITARY-TO-AMATEUR CROSS BAND SSB TEST CONTACTS.
Military-to-Amateur cross band operations will take place on the
dates/times in ZULU (UTC), and frequencies listed below for each
station. Voice contacts will include operations in single sideband
voice (SSB). Some stations may not operate the entire period,
depending on propagation and manning. Participating military
stations
will transmit on selected Military MARS frequencies and listen for
amateur radio stations in the Amateur bands indicated below. The
military station operator will announce the specific amateur band
frequency being monitored. Duration of each voice contact should be
limited to 1-2 minutes. The following stations will be
transmitting on
MARS frequencies listed below which are provided as "Window/Dial
Frequency" in kHz.

SUBMISSION OF SECRETARY OF DEFENSE TEST MESSAGE ENTRIES.
Transcripts of the RTTY, PACTOR, AMTOR, PSK-31, MFSK and MT63
receiving test should be submitted "as received". No attempt
should be
made to correct possible transmission errors. Provide time,
frequency
and call sign of the military station copied, including name, call
sign, and address (including ZIP code) of individual submitting the
entry. Ensure this information is placed on the paper containing
the
test message. Each year a large number of acceptable entries are
received with insufficient information, or necessary information
was
not attached to the transcriptions and was separated, thereby
precluding issuance of a certificate. Entries must be sent to the
appropriate military address as follows:

a. Stations copying Secretary of Defense message transmitted from
AAZ
send entries to:

Trouble with Slider 5

Art Searle W2NRA <w2nra@...>
 

I'm having a slight problem with Slider 5. I have it set up as Noise
Reduction and it works fine except every time I launch Commander I get junk
in Noise Reduction and Automatic Notch. I usually get a ? in Noise
Reduction and a > or another value other than 0 in Automatic Notch.

The commander for Noise Reduction also controls Noise Blanker and Automatic
Notch.

I have Slider 5 command as 2A4B00<5H1>000D. The first 00 is Noise Blanker
off. The <5H1> is the position for Noise Reduction. The 2nd 00 is Auto
Notch off.

I suspect my problem has to do with 3 commands at once and Commander not
initiating them on start up. I suspect the defect is a problem with The Ten
Tec Omni VII firmware. Also I don't get any errors if I load this slider in 1 thru 4. It only malfunctions in Slider 5 thru 8. Dave, what do you think?

Per the Programmers Guide:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Noise Blanker, Noise Reduction, and Automatic Notch are available for
use in all modes. They can be used individually or together.

Format: �*� �K� <d2> <d1> <d0> <CR>
Where: �*� = the ASCII �*� symbol (0x2a)

K = the ASCII �K� character (0x4B)
<d2> = Noise Blanker State (0=off action 1-7)
<d1> = Noise Reduction State (0=off action 1-9)
<d0> = Auto Notch State (0=off action 1-9)

Also, Commander just took 50 seconds... DX Keeper 2 minutes.

NOT simultaneously.

Subject: [dxlab] dupe check in DXK 6.xx ?

Hello,

is there any possibility to perform a dupe check for same
band/mode in
DXK 6.x?

I mean, getting a filtered logbook with only the dupes listed
where I
have the same call with same band/mode?

Thanks, Andy.

Re: What do I need for RTTY?

Art Burke <aburkefl@...>
 

If you're interested specifically in RTTY, Google AA5AU site. He's
the guru of RTTY - every beginning RTTYer should start on his web
site!

Wanted to thank you ... I just picked up the book you recommended
at
the local HRO store. It is wonderful and is helping me with a lot
of
questions. Only problem was when they rung it up they could not
find
a code for the 3rd edition, so they used the code for the 4th
edition. I asked where the 4th edition was and they said it had
not
come out yet. That sounded fishy so I checked when I got home and
there is indeed a 4th edition. Guess they unloaded an old copy on
me, but it is still very useful. It was published in 2004.

Now I am going to check that web site you recommended.

Thanks again ...

Am still working through learning curves on DXLab. The

wandering around in a magnificent, yet intimidating forest.

I wish there was a sort of tutorial, that started you out on
essentials like logging and controling basic things on your
radio,
and then progressing to DXing, pathfinding, propagation, digital
modes, etc.
There is, see:

http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/GettingStarted

I don;t feel I have a very good plan of attack on what
order I should be learning things.
There is still a great deal of information there and you will
still
need your plan of attack but I think you pretty well laid it out
in
the paragraph above.


At any rate, I was playing around with the RTTY in Warbler.

It seemed to me that the DXLab was able to generate RTTY
transmissions without my needing any other software or hardware
other
than my CAT cable. Is this true?
If your rig accepts PTT commands via the CAT interface then the
only
other thing you would need is a sound card interface. I use a
RigBlaster for both PTT on a separate serial port and sound card
interfacing.

Also will Warbler decode any RTTY transmissions I find on the
air?

Yes.

I learned a few weeks ago that I cannot do CW with just DXLab
and
have to add other hardware/software. I thought this would also
be
true with RTTY, but seems not to be the case.
If you are talking about decoding CW then yes you would
currently
need an external terminal unit to do that. However, to send CW
via
WinWarbler, I use nothing more than the ReigBlaster mentioned
above.
You can also construct a simple one transistor level converter
to
key
your rig from the RTS or DTS handshake lines on a serial port.

Can anyone help me figure this out?
There is an ARRL publication named "ARRL's HF Digital Handbook"
-- by Steve Ford, WB8IMY that can be very helpful. That's what I
started with when I got back into ham radio in 1999. There is
also
a
lot of information available on-line at

Approx 11 seconds here with most other DXLab apps, Ham Radio Deluxe
and Firefox already running. 1.7GHz P4 / 1GB RAM

I did notice that a couple releases ago it was blazingly fast to open
compared to earlier ones, and I'd consider it now back to "normal"

Hi Andy,

Not here. It took almost 3 seconds to load and this was after DXK, SC, DV, CC and Internet Explorer and Outlook Express were all running.

Andy, is that before or after you took out the Audigy card? That's one of the same symptoms I saw with mine. No idea how the two could be related, but they were.
