Re: Progress table DXKeeper 1.2.3

Richard B Drake
 

Found something interesting about that. If you make a change to a
contact in the main QSO window then click save, it adds the info
to the progress window. Might help narrow it down a bit.

add new ones.
I have to do a "Recompute" for them to show up.

DXKeeper 1.2.4 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This release

- correctly updates the progess table when QSOs are logged from the
Capture window

- contains more instrumentation aimed at isolating the "persistent
hourglass" problem

- if you export to an existing file, gives you the option of clearing the
file's contents before the exported records are written

- has improved export performance (~3000 QSOs per minute on this 300 mhz
machine)

If you've already installed DXKeeper 1.1.1 or later, you can upgrade to
version 1.2.4 by downloading and then running
http://www.qsl.net/dxkeeper/DXKeeper124Update.exe

DXKeeper 1.2.4

Richard B Drake
 

Dave,

I have been running V 1.2.4 most of the day and so far I have been
unable to break it. I created a new error log before installing it
and so far it's empty. Looking good :-)

PropView 1.0.6 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This is a defect, Joe -- PropView's Transmitter Latitude and Longitude are
not being properly initialized when DXView is installed. This has been
corrected in PropView version 1.0.6, which can be obtained by downloading
and running www.qsl.net/propview/PropView106Update.exe -- place the
extracted PropView106.exe in your PropView folder, and then run it.

Thanks!

Dave, AA6YQ

I have installed and operated PropView with DxView. It is working quite
well for me but I have one quirk that may be caused by something in my
setup here but I thought I would bring it to your attention.
Initally, in
Propview parameters I insert my Transmitter latitude of 41.3 and
Longitude
of 87.28. It appears correctly as 40 30' and 87 28'.... all works well
with the program. Then if I quit the programs and reboot them, in the
propview parameters my Transmitter latitude comes up 0 30' and Latitude
0 28'. on DxView chart, my location is correctly indicated at the south
end of Lake Michigan as it should but I find that to get correct
computations I must go back to the parameters of Propview and correct the
transmitter latitude and longitude .... after doing so all works well
again. Then if I quit the program and reboot it, again the parameters of
the Transmitter location are missing the degrees numbers ...showing only
the minutes. I have uninstalled the program and reinstalled with
the same
result.

Do you have any thoughts? I am running Windows 98 on a custom AMD K6
350mhz with 128mb of RAM.

Thanks ... 73-Joe,K9BH

DXKeeper 1.2.5 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This release

- eliminates several possible causes of the "Cannot open any more tables
or queries" error log entry that occurs after many log filter operations

- accepts callsigns from DXView (requires DXView 1.2.9, which is as yet
unreleased)

If you've already installed DXKeeper 1.1.1 or later, you can upgrade to
version 1.2.5 by downloading and then running
http://www.qsl.net/dxkeeper/DXKeeper125Update.exe

DXView 1.2.9 is available

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

This release

- supports rotators controlled by ARSWIN (see
http://www.ea4tx.com/inde.htm)

- logs the contents of the Prefix texbox (presumably a callsign) in
DXKeeper (if running) when you depress the CTRL key while clicking the Go
button, or while striking the Enter key in the Prefix textbox.

The second feature requires DXKeeper 1.2.5 or later. If DXKeeper's QSO
Capture window is visible, then the contents of DXKeeper's Prefix textbox
overwrite the contents of the QSO Capture window's Callsign textbox.
Otherwise, they overwrite the contents of the Callsign textbox in DXKeeper's
main log window.

If you've already installed DXView, you can upgrade by downloading
http://www.qsl.net/dxview/DXView129Update.exe - store it in your DXView
folder and execute it; you can then run the extracted DXView129.exe . Your
online help will be updated by this process.

Re: DxView

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

That's certainly a defect, Mark, but you're the first to report it. What
version of DXView are you running? On which operating system are you
running?

Does this failure occur right away, or after you some action on your part?

So far so good

Richard B Drake
 

Dave,

So far the new versions of DXKeeper and DXView are running
smoothly but we'll run them a little longer before giving a clean
bill of health :-) I like the new functionality. One thing, I
would like to see the Ctl+Enter logging function in the capture
window work with the cursor in any field instead of just the
callsign field. I often find my cursor in the Name or QTH fields
and my hands on the keyboard when I'm ready to log a contact.

I understand Rich's suggestion to be "striking CTRL-Enter in any QSO

fields for the next QSO".

Should the same behavior apply in the main logging window?

Ron, I'm not sure what you mean by "a special button". Please
elaborate.

By the way, Ron, is DXView 1.2.9 controlling your rotator properly
through ARSWIN?

-I have it works Dave there is one smal problem but i think thats a
calibration problem if i ask JA6 that is 35 degrees he going to 129 so that
is it with LOGGER no problem then he is o.k. perhaps i must do calibration
but then i must when i change to logger from DXView. must see what i can do.

Re: So far so good

Yes, that's what I meant Dave. Yes, I think it would work well in
the main window as well and would also maintain consistency of the

Re: DXView and ARSWIN

Richard B Drake
 

Ron,

Assuming that Dave has maintained the same functionality with the
Arswin rotor as he has with the Yaesu, you should be able to fix
that by defining an appropriate "Rotor offset" in the config
window. If you are asking for 35 and getting 129, it sounds like
you need an offset of -94. Mine is set to -166 because the North
American version of the Yaesu rotor uses 0 to mean 180 degrees and
I had a 14 degree error in the way my beam is positioned on the
mast. Appropriately defining the offset puts it right on the mark.
