I'd suggest FLE (Fast Log Entry). Google it. It allows what you want. When you're done, export it as an ADIF file and then import into DXKeeper. Very fast, yes, I've used it myself.

Enabling Channel Monitor

Bernard G. Huth <bhuth@...>
 

I am using WinWarblerl 5.7.7 and I find that I frequently need to
re-enable the Channel Monitor. It doesn't happen every time, but I
find when WinWarbler starts, the Channel Monitor not enabled, and I
must go into the Setup menu and re-enable it.

It's a minor irritant, but I wonder why this may be happening.

I can do the same thing by configuring Commander to set DTR high
on the COM port and use the high there to select CW/Mic/etc.
It works well with microHAM MK2R+ but that only handles two
radios. When I switch to the third it's necessary to select
a different serial port for CW (different WinKey device) and
a different sound card for MMTTY/PSKCORE.
This is interesting; I recently acquired a W5XD Multi-Keyer to hook up to work with WriteLog. It will be interesting to play around with it to see if I can make it work successfully using Commander.

How many transceivers would you expect such a device to support?

Should it include CAT interfaces for each transceiver?

Should it include soundcard functions and if so should that support
be digital mode only or should it include SSB operation (DVK record/
play capability)?

Should it include speaker/headphone switching (listen only to the
selected radio) or only a mixer function?

Re: dxk 6.6.2 - EQSL Synchronizing

KKorn <kkorn42@...>
 

Hi Dave,

sorry I still don't get the idea.

The same thing happened today: I initiated "synch" with EQSL and was told: 1
QSL processed, 0 QSOs updated , no errors.

Then I contacted EQSL website and checked if there is a QSL in my inbox:
none.

Which QSL was processed?

I have the time frame set to 60 mins.

If there would be a EQSL that does not match the QSO data - then there
should be an error!?

Dave, I understand the logic you explained but I do not understand What
happens. Can I find out WHICH QSL was handled by dxk?

Sorry for bothering you again.

Commander can be configured to place a 2-bit code identifying

I can't figure out what in DXLab is running (and DXLab is _all_

spotting station grid square: clusters aren't perfect either

Dave AA6YQ
 

A 6m spot for VR2IL just appeared in SpotCollector's Spot Database
Display. This is surprising, since I have SpotCollector set to hide
6m Spot Database Entries whose closest spotting station is further
than 400 miles from my QTH. Only one spot of VR2IL has been received,
and it came via the VE7CC cluster, which I have configured to include
the spotting station's grid square:

DX de VR10XMT: 50130.0 VR2IL cq dx 354Z FM59

As you can see, the spotting station is VR10XMT, and his/her
gridsquare is reported as FM58, which is 376 miles from my QTH in
FN42. That explains why the Spot Database Entry is visible, but
VR10XMT is clearly not operating from FM59. I don't know how the
cluster software comes up with a grid square for VR10XMT, but its
clearly not 100% reliable.

Perhaps an option to ignore spotting station gridsquares provided by
the clusters should be added.

It seems that is must be a filter setting of some kind. I wish I could tell
which it might be but if nothing at all is shown.
Look at the SC screen and what does Filter say? That will tell what filters
you have set. Then go to the configurations for those and see if the logic
would pass the spots. If you have no origin filter s set that is one way to
see nothing. If you have no mode filters set you will see nothing. If you
have NEED filters and none are needed you will say nothing. Good Luck.

When using a WinKey, settings in the Weight panel on the Config

send CW, so I don't really care, and just close the warning window.

I can't figure out what in DXLab is running (and DXLab is _all_
that's
running) to appropriate Com2 for PTT. When I get a chance
I'll have
to
open Task Manager and see what all is running.

(I just tried opening the program when I wrote this
message, and I
got
the same warning, even though this time WW started up in SSB mode,
which I _never_ use. I was opening the program remotely on
the PC in
the basement shack from my laptop in the computer room on the first
floor, I don't know if this might have thrown in some
additional data
signals that the program interpreted as a mode selection.)

Re: dxk 6.6.2 - EQSL Synchronizing

Dave AA6YQ
 

After you perform a "Sync eQSL.cc QSLs" operation, "QSLs processed"
indicates the total number of QSLs that eQSL.cc sent to DXKeeper. "QSOs
updated" indicates the number of downloaded QSLs that

contain a valid QSO date, time, callsign, band, and mode

and

match a QSO in your log (within the "maximum time difference..." specified
on the "QSL Config" window's eQSL tab

and

don't already have eQSL_QSL_RCVD set to 'Y' or 'V'

In summary, if you perform a "Sync eQSL.cc QSLs" and are informed that N
QSLs were processed by 0 QSOs were updated, then the downloaded QSLs either
matched no QSOs in your log, or were previously downloaded (so the
associated logged QSOs have already been updated).

Dave, AA6YQ

I don't get too many EQSLs, When synchronizing I somtimes get the
message: "N QSLs processed for dj6lb, 0 QSOs updated, 0 errors".
Why are N QSLs processed and no updates? I can't find an explanation
for this message and don't understand the logic behind it.
When looking into the log there is no change in the list of received
EQSLs.

Would appreciate some assistance on this (new/6.6) behaviour. I
probably miss the point completely.

Re: CW Setup in DXLab

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

The problem is always that I can only set up one port for CW keying,
and I have to switch the output of that port externally to select
the radio I want to key. It would be nice if I could designate
multiple CW ports in software, so that WinWarbler could, for instance,
use Com2 for CW if I have selected the FT1000MP in Commander, and use
Com6 if I've selected the FT897D.
It would also be handy to be able to designate "Output 1" and "Output 2"

of a WinKey 2 (WinKey USB) for specific radios ... as well as different
WinKey serial ports.

... Joe, W4TV

Yes, that should eliminate the warning.

You could also use EXTFSK for MMTTY FSK -- configured for COM 2 --
which
would release WinWarbler's used of COM 2 for PTT and FSK. Since
EXTFSK only
uses COM 2 when operating in RTTY mode, you could also use
COM 2 for
CW
keying without creating a conflict.
Hmmm...that's a thought, thanks, Dave.

Actually, the only time right now that the computer keys the
radio is
when I'm in a contest, and then I'm using WriteLog. For
normal DXing I
just use the paddle.

On the Config window's CW tab, what have you selected in the Keying
panel,
and for what serial port?
Serial port DTR is selected, and it says Com2. I'm beginning to see
the light.

I just removed Com2 from the Port field in the Keying panel. Maybe
this will get rid of the warning?

Thanks for the help, Dave.

For some time now, I've had the experience of starting up
WinWarbler
and getting a warning message: "port 2 is being used for
PTT; its DTR
signal is not available for DTR keying." I don't use WinWarbler to
send CW, so I don't really care, and just close the warning window.
