Re: urlmon.dll & IE9 issue FIXED!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but the only thing that applies to Windows 7 in that article is the link to the Install/Uninstall IE9 page which Dave has already referenced in the Wiki topic. There is no download of IE8 available for Windows 7 and attempting to apply any of the other methods mentioned in that article would only mess up your option settings and would not fix the URLMON.dll problem.

Subject: [dxlab] mouse over question


I normally have SC on the secondary monitor.
As far as I can see, all the SC mouseovers appear on the 'Primary'
monitor and sometimes blend into the color of what I have positioned at
the upper left corner.

Is this correct or can I reposition the mouseovers?

That's a defect in the commercial control (TrueDBGrid Pro) used to
implement both SpotCollector's Spot Database Display and DXKeeper's Log Page
Display.

Upgrades of this control have been available for years, but I have been
reluctant to try them for fear of leaping from the frying pan to the fire.

Subject: [dxlab] Spot Collector and PathFinder


I've recently upgraded all the application in DX Lab after my return at
home.

Today i've noticed that when a double click on a spot entry in Spot
Collector, Commander QSY my FT-1000 and the Path Finder window automatically
brings up over the Spot Collector window showing the QRZ info of the spotted
callsign.

Before the update, double clicking oh the spot entry in SC, the Commander
made a QSY on my Radio but SC STAYS IN BACKGROUND

As i have a cluttered screen (22") i have tiled SC and PF one over another
and ONLY when i need to read the QRZ.com page of the spotted callsign, i
manually bring up the PF window in foreground.

Maybe i'm missing something (i've been far from my shack for 1 month) but i
didn't find any Preferences that avoid this. Only the use of the Mouse Right
Click + QSY avoid me this.

Is there any way "to restore" the previous behavior of PF?

Sometimes Pathfinder's captive web browser (Internet Explorer) decides to
grab focus after completing a search or a lookup. I have chased this down
many times over the years, but have never found a reliable way to replicate
it or control it. If you're going to have SpotCollector and Pathfinder share
the same screen space, make Pathfinder's window a little less tall so that
when Pathfinder petulantly appears atop SpotCollector, you can correct the
situation by simply clicking on the still-visible title bar of
SpotCollector's Main window.

Subject: [dxlab] SC filter doesn't filter audio


After some experimenting and help from Dave, I have a filter button working
to give me a quick way to limit the SC display to needed entities spotted
from NA. The button calls:

(NAE='Y' or NAM='Y' or NAW='Y') and <bandfilter> and <modefilter> and
<needfilter>

What I see is just as I expect. What I hear, though, are audio
announcements for needed ones spotted from anywhere. Is there a separate
method of limiting the audio announcements, or have I missed a SQL step?

It's not a major issue, but if there's a fix I'd like to stop the spots of
needed ones spotted from outside NA unless I am displaying spots from
outside NA.

On the Configuration window's Audio tab, the "Alarm trigger" panel lets
you choose between "Unfiltered" (announce newly-created entries that are
needed) and "Filtered" (announce announce newly-created entries that are
needed and that pass the Band, Mode, Continent, and Origin filters). There
is currently no way to limit announcements to newly-created entries that
pass an SQL filter.

devices ?


Dave -

OK - got it. Thanks.

A couple of final Qs about this.

1) Is the communication between DXView and the rotator 'assumptive' or
'confirmatory'. What I mean by that is: does DXView either look for an
ACK (acnoledgement signal) from the rotor control box, or request a
confirmatory 'pointer readout' back from the rotor control boxes after
it sends the command to the rotor to rotate ?

It's been awhile since I worked with rotor control protocols, but I don't
recall any of them as using a "command/response" protocol. Most do provide
the ability to read the current azimuth -- which DXView does not currently
support.

You can use DXView to control the freeware N1MM rotator control program,
which does display the current azimuth in a small window.

Since releasing DXView more than 10 years ago, I do not recall a single
instance of a rotor control protocol failure.


2) Is there any documented description of the communication protocol
(the actual 'payload' data exchanges - [not the standard RS-232 protocol
of start/stop parity etc] ) used between DXView and the various brands
of RS-232 rotor control boxes ?

Yes: the manufacturers of PC-controllable rotator controllers provide
this documentation.

Re: urlmon.dll & IE9 issue FIXED!!!!!!!!!

Richard B Drake
 

Turning auto updates off is a bad idea because you may miss some very important security updates and leave your system vulnerable to malicious attack. Once a vulnerability has been publicly announced the hackers come out in large numbers trying to trap people and organizations who neglect to install the update. Follow the instructions that Dave provided in

<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/Windows7_IE9_DownloadError>

to prevent any further attempts to install IE9.

Also you can change your update settings to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them". This will notify you when updates are available and allow you to read the descriptions and decide what you do or do not want to install. Normally you should install all updates marked as "Important" unless you know it's something you don't want. It's always possible to back out an update if it causes a problem but that's very rare. It has only happened to me once or twice in the 20+ years I have been installing Windows updates.

Is there any possibility to PRINT the QSL Queue, with all the data

(including also, possibly, the colours re. LoTW, eQSL and both) as it
appears in the QSL window of DxKeeper? Or exporting it with all the
details?

On the Main window's QSL tab, if the "QSL Via" panel is set to anything
but eQSL or LotW, the "Process QSLs and Addresses" panel provides a "Create
Address File" button that when clicked generates a printable report showing
each entry in the QSL Queue; the purpose of this report is to enable a
quick
review of each QSO's address, and to provide a way of inserting the correct
QSL card into each envelope.

If you set the "QSL Via" panel to "ADIF file" and then click the
"Process
QSLs and Addresses" panel's "Save ADIF file" button, DXKeeper will generate
an ADIF file containing one record for each QSO in the QSL Queue. Each
record will include the following ADIF tags:

CALL
TIME_ON
QSO_DATE
MODE
BAND
FREQ
RST_SENT
RST_RCVD
QSL_VIA
QSLMSG
SAT_NAME
BAND_RX
FREQ_RX
PROP_MODE
SAT_MODE
NAME
DXCC (country code)

If you set the "QSL Via" panel to "tab-delimited file" and then click
the
"Process QSLs and Addresses" panel's "Save TDF file" button, DXKeeper will
generate an tab-delimited file containing one record for each QSO in the
QSL
