Re: Icom RS232 interface from KG7SG

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

Tom,

The radio sends data

- if its "CI-V Transceive" setting is on, and you change frequency or
change modes

- in response to a query from Commander

If you didn't set "CI-V Transceive" to "on" (using the 746 menu, as
described in the manual), then you must configure CI-V Commander to
continuously query the radio by checking the "Continuous Frequency and Mode
Interrogation" box in Commander's General configuration tab

Alternatively, you can set "CI-V Transceive" to "on", in which case
continuous queries are unnecessary

If neither of the above configurations results in Commander displaying your
radio's frequency and mode, let me know and we'll take the next step - which
is to check the message window.

Just in case: do you have a scope or meter?

73,

Dave, AA6YQ

Subject: [dxlab] Icom RS232 interface from KG7SG


I am running CI-V Commander version 1.2.2 using the KG7SG interface I just
made. I am able to control the ICOM 746 via the computer but I am not
able
to receive any data from the radio.

I have double checked all wiring and software and radio config settings
with
no luck.

I am still suspicious that it is in the wiring but I am hoping that it is
something simple in the software or at the radio that I may have
overlooked.

Suggestions from any is gratefully welcomed

Thank you

Hi Dave,

Thanks again for your help. I realize that this is sidetracking you from
your software projects but you are the only one that I know that understands
the interface.

I have done all that you suggested already with no results. I have tried the
message window as well with no results either. The Radix is at hexadecimal.
Receive message box is checked as well.

I do not have a scope but I do have a meter.

Thank you

No problem, Tom. Lets pick a time this weekend to get together in
real time via HF or landline and we'll walk through the interface
with your meter. Please send me a private email suggesting times that
work for you.

By the way, how are you powering your interface? If its via the RS232
port's modem control signals, you might start by verifying that the
interface has power.

DXKeeper 1.2.3 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This release

- properly saves the state of "Show Control Explanations" between
sessions

- includes instrumentation to detect the "persistent hourglass" defect
(please be on the lookout for an error log)

- automatically restarts the inter-application communication link with
DXView, should it terminate

- adds the option of specifying a UTC filter based on start date and end
date (settings can be adjusted by depressing the control key while clicking
the UTC filter button)

If you've already installed DXKeeper 1.1.1 or later, you can upgrade to
version 1.2.3 by downloading and then running
http://www.qsl.net/dxkeeper/DXKeeper123Update.exe ; your online help will be
updated by this process.

I was able to check www.qsl.net/dxkeeper via FTP, and found all of the

Re: DXKeeper 1.2.3 is available

Dave,

I never had a problem with qsl.net's http pages but now have
successfully downloaded DXKeeper 1.2.3. I know you said you put
some logging in to try and catch the permanent hour glass problem
but whatever you did seems to have fixed it - I can no longer
reproduce it. Also the problem with DXView not connecting to
DXKeeper while PathView is up, seems to be fixed though I have a
feeling that it is your auto reconnect that is catching and
correcting it. The net result is, so far, everything seems very
good with this release, though I have not yet used it for real
logging.

Re: DXKeeper 1.2.3 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

Since I couldn't replicate the "permanent hourglass" problem, I couldn't be
certain that I'd corrected it -- but I thought that might be the case. I did
find and correct a more egregious example -- clicking the DXCC filter button
with no prefix in the filter textbox would produce a similar situation.

Though I added the additional UTC filter range settings, I'm not satisfied
that they are sufficiently intuitive. Critique and/or suggestions would be
appreciated.

It works fine for me the way it is. However, I suspect it may be
more intuitive especially for the first time user to have a
separate filter in the export pane completely independent of the
filter in the log pane.

Would having the log window (and its sort and filter controls) remain

Hmm! That's something I hadn't thought of. But yes, I think that

Export

Richard B Drake
 

Dave,

I notice that when you export log entries to an existing ADIF file
that you append the entries instead of overwriting the old file.
Since I use this feature mostly to add new entries to eQSL.cc this
is not what I want. How about making append/replace optional?

Re: Export

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

So should DXKeeper note that the specified file exists and query the user
with something like "The file c:&#92;mylogs&#92;mumble.adi" already exists -- should
I clear its current contents before appending the exported records?"

Or would it be better to add a new Configuration setting, a checkbox for
"clear contents of existing files before appending exported records"?

Dave, AA6YQ

I notice that when you export log entries to an existing ADIF file
that you append the entries instead of overwriting the old file.
Since I use this feature mostly to add new entries to eQSL.cc this
is not what I want. How about making append/replace optional?

Re: Export

Richard B Drake
 

Actually very few programs offer the option to append. Most say
overwrite, or name another file. Yes, it would be nice to say, it
exists, overwrite it or append to it. I will almost always say
overwrite. I already knew it existed and I don't need the old
stuff anymore.

So should DXKeeper note that the specified file exists
and query the user
with something like "The file c:&#92;mylogs&#92;mumble.adi"
already exists -- should
I clear its current contents before appending the
exported records?"

Or would it be better to add a new Configuration
setting, a checkbox for
"clear contents of existing files before appending
exported records"?

Mouse wheel

Richard B Drake
 

An interesting feature that was just added to WriteLog, is mouse
wheel tuning of the radio - pretty slick. How about CI-V
commander? I think 10Hz a click would be good, just right for a
little fine tuning.

That should be trivial to implement, once I find the Windows API for
the mouse wheel.

Progress table DXKeeper 1.2.3

Dave,

The progress table does not seem to get updated as I add new ones.
I have to do a "Recompute" for them to show up.

yes, I noticed that last night while hunting for the "hourglass"
problem. I'll track it down...
