Run-time error

Richard B Drake
 

Closing DXKeeper while it is minimized on the task bar by right
clicking on the task bar icon and selecting close, produces the
following error:

"Run-time error '384' A form can't be moved or sized while
minimized or maximized"

Capture window clear button.

Richard B Drake
 

It would be nice after clicking "clear" in the capture window if
the keyboard focus would go to the callsign entry window as it
does after clicking "log". I often find myself trying to type a
new callsign into the clear button :-)

This is easily implemented, and the "crash while iconified" defect is
easily repaired -- but work committments will push this out a few
days.

Come on! For what we are paying you, you should be right on top of

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This release

- corrects a defect that produced a crash if you tried to close DXKeeper

cursor in the callsign field

Pathfinder Users: new YB search

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

Thanks to Fred K3ZO, Pathfinder can now search the online Indonesian
callbook. Access to this site can be a little slow, as requests and results
must traverse the Amateur Packet Radio (AMPR) Network, making response time
dependent on channel utilization and the load at the AMPRNet-Internet
gateway.

To update your search library, click Pathfinder's "Info" button, or link to
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/UpdateSearchLibrary.htm. The Pathfinder Web
Client ( http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/WebClient/ ) has been updated with
the above addition; the only action required of its users is to click their
Browser's "refresh" button.

As always, reports of new online QSL sources or changes to existing sources
are greatly appreciated.

73,

Dave, AA6YQ

Pathfinder is a free program that makes it easy to find QSL information from
more than 100 web-accessible sources. See http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/ for
additional information and download instructions. Or use the Pathfinder Web
Client -- its a little less flexible, but requires no downloading or
installation and runs in any Javascript-supporting browser on Windows,
MacOS, Linux, or Unix; just visit http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/WebClient/ .

Pathfinder 3.0

RTrebil640@...
 

I have just downloaded and installed Pathfinder 3.0 But when I
enter a call sign and press one of the buttons, I just get a page
which says "You are not authorised to view this page"

Re: Pathfinder 3.0

Dave Bernstein <dhb@...>
 

Pathfinder is subject to the security settings maintained by Internet
Explorer. It sounds like yours are a bit too tight.

To verify this, start Internet Explorer and display
http://www.qrz.com. If you get the "you're not authorized..."
message, then modify security settings as suggested in the next
paragraph. If qrz.com works fine, then my hypothesis is incorrect.

To change security settings from within Internet Explorer, click on
its Tools menu, and select the "Internet Security" tab. You can use
http://www.qrz.com as a test case -- if you've sufficiently loosened
security to the point where Internet Explorer will display this page,
then then Pathfinder should be able to display QSL information pages.

Let me know how it goes...

Re: Pathfinder 3.0

I find that I can bring up QRZ.com OK but it does not put the
callsign that I have entered into the search window and find it. I
have to type it in again and do the search from there. The same
thing happens with BUCK.COM, WM7D works fine. DXC R gives me a 404
Object not found error, DXS gives me an Internal Server Error, DXM
gives me a 404 error. When I type in my own callsign in the
Pathfinder window, the pop up site that comes up is Deja (very
strange for a W3 call) clicking on Deja gives me a 400 Bad Request

Re: Pathfinder 3.0

Dave Bernstein <dhb@...>
 

When you install Pathfinder 3.0, the included search library is
obsolete. Step 7 of the download/installation instructions (
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/DownloadInstall.htm ) suggests that you
immediately upgrade your search library. The problems you and Robin
cite, now that I recall the search changes since Pathfinder 3.0 was
released, are almost certainly due obsolete searche files.

To update your search files, follow the instructions at
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/UpdateSearchLibrary.htm . After
performing this download, you must update the searches associated
with buttons, e.g. QRZ and DXS. This procedure is described in
http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/AssignSearchButton.htm .

I acknowledge that this process could be more automated -- the
original Pathfinder design assumed that users would update searches
themselves, and directly exchange the files, rather than rely on a
centralized repository that a few people maintain. I do plan a major
Pathfinder update that will make search library updating a completely
automatic process.

Alternatively, you can avoid all of this by using the Pathfinder Web
Client -- this is a web-based version of Pathfinder that require no
downloading, installation, or search library updates. Its a little
less flexible, in that you have no control of which searches are on
buttons, but updates are automatic.

Give it a try at http://www.qsl.net/pathfinder/WebClient/

I had downloaded the search library before but again it was a
matter of not reading "all" the directions. I assumed that all I
had to do was download and unzip the library. Now that I have read
more as you pointed out and tried it, things are working much
better.

DXView 1.2.6 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

In this release, I modified the internal representation of latitudes and
longitudes to correct a defect that caused the incorrect display of
positions between 0 South and 0 1' North, or between 0 East and 0 1' West ;
I doubt anyone would have ever noticed, but my 11th grade trig teacher would
kill me if she ever discovered this error. While I believe that my testing
covered all the combinations, it was a deep change -- so I'd appreciate it
if someone who likes breaking things would take a shot at this version.

I also completed the transition to direct latitude and longitude entry,
converting the QTH position text boxes on the Configuration screen to accept
things like 42 15' N rather than 42.25 with a check in the "North" box. When
you first run this version, please verify that your QTH location is still
correct.

The online help has also been updated.

This release is available by downloading
http://www.qsl.net/dxview/DXView126Update.exe - store it in your DXView
folder and execute it. You can then run the extracted DXView126.exe .

Warning: Daylight Savings Time transition problem

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

Today, I was dismayed to see that DXView's title bar was displaying a UTC
time that was off by one hour. I fired up WinWarbler, and the UTC time in
its title bar was correct. DXView, WinWarbler, and most other DXLab
applications use common code for this function -- how could the two programs
report different times using the same code? I terminated DXView and
restarted it -- the time shown in its title bar was now correct.

These programs report time by checking the system clock every second using a
Windows API that supposedly handles daylight savings time transitions.
Evidently running programs don't make the time transition properly -- you
must shut them down and restart them. I will investigate further -- perhaps
there's something I can do to make this completely automatic, as originally
intended.

PropView 1.0.1 is available for beta test

Dave Bernstein <dhb@...>
 

PropView uses the included IonCap propagation prediction engine to
forecast the minimum and maximum useable frequencies between two
locations over a specified 24 hour period. Results are rendered in an
easy-to-understand color-graphic display. You can specify locations
via direct latitude/longitude entry. Alternatively, PropView
interoperates with DXView to allow location selection via DXCC prefix
entry or by clicking on locations on a world map.

A sample screen shot, online help, and download instructions are
available via www.qsl.net/propview .

Critique and suggestions would be appreciated.
