Re: Winwarbler Settings

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

Over the last couple of weeks when starting Winwarbler (9.2.9) I have found randomly it has "lost" the QSO Info settings. It becomes evident because I have initialise RST items to 59/599 checked and when I log the first QSO the fields are empty. Then upon checking I find all the checkboxes in the Log>>QSO info section are cleared (blank).

Today when I started Winwarbler I got a warning message that the Xcvr Mode for RTTY AFSK was not set (it had been previously). This field was also cleared and again when checking the QSO info section was also all blank.

It is no hassle to redo the settings but I wonder if there is an underlying reason - probably more Windows related than Winwarbler?

+ Like all DXLab applications, WinWarbler stores its settings in the Windows Registry. If over the past few weeks you've suddenly started seeing settings changes that you didn't make, I suggest examining the Windows event logs for hardware and software error reports.

Re: WinWarbler macro CW message length

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

I just started using WinWarbler and tried defining a macro to send a CW message. It works fine as long as the message is less than about 45 characters. If I execute a macro with a longer CW message I get an error message "Commander: Transceiver command rejected" and it stops sending after about 45 characters.

+ So that I can see what's going on, please do the following:

1. on the General tab of Commander's Configuration window, check the "log debugging info" box

2. terminate Commander

3. start Commander

4. wait until Commander's Main window is displaying your IC-7300's frequency and mode

5. execute the WinWarbler macro that previously caused Commander to report "Transceiver command rejected"

6. wait for the "Transceiver command rejected" message to appear

7. on the General tab of Commander's Configuration window, uncheck the "log debugging info" box

8. attach the errorlog.txt file from your Commander folder to an email message, and send the message to me via

WinWarbler macro CW message length

Andy - K0AF
 

I just started using WinWarbler and tried defining a macro to send a CW message. It works fine as long as the message is less than about 45 characters. If I execute a macro with a longer CW message I get an error message "Commander: Transceiver command rejected" and it stops sending after about 45 characters. My transceiver is IC-7300. For CI-V command 17 (send CW message) the user manual says "Up to 30 characters".

How do I program a WW macro to send a message longer than 45 characters? I'm sure the answer is in the Commander or WW help file but I haven't found it.

Thanks!

Re: Commander : slider command help pse

F5PHW Phil BERGER
 

Dave

Tnx again for quick answer.

It works !

MG000 turns K3 MIC LEVEL to 000 and MG050 to 050.

But there is no info of new value on the K3.
When changing OUTPUT POWER or CW SPEED with Commander slider, we can see the new value on the K3 panel during 1 second.

But, strangely, when changing MIC LEVEL, there is no info on the K3 like for OUTPUT POWER or CW SPEED. If we turn slowly the mic level potentiometer on the K3, we can see that the new value is ok.

But never mind. It works for MIC LEVEL.

I try also to command with slider the LINE LEVEL but did not find the right command for the K3.
If anyone has info ...

Many tnx Dave for help.

Subject: [DXLab] Install/Config DXLab for WSJT-X; Config SpotCollector's steps# 3a, 3b, 3c.

I don't understand how to "add a column".

+ Each of those three steps suggests adding a column to SpotCollector's Spot Database Display to make specific information easily visible:

---------------------------
3. In the Layout panel on the Configuration window's Spot Database Display tab

3a. If you are pursuing awards based on primary administrative subdivisions (e.g. US States, Canadian Provinces, Russian Oblasts), add a column to the Spot Database Display for the Primary field

3b. To see the SNR most recently decoded by WSJT-X, add a column to the Spot Database Display for the ActualSNR field

3c. To see the smallest and largest SNRs decoded by WSJT-X, add columns to the Spot Database Display for the ActualSNRMin and ActualSNRMax fields, respectively
---------------------------

+ In each of instructions 3a, 3b, and 3c, the words "add a column to the Spot Database Display" are hyperlinked to this article

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/SpotDatabaseFormat>;

+ which provides a screen shot showing the Spot Database Display, along with an explanation as to how to add new columns.


I've looked at the Help section but, at this point, I'm in "mental overload".

+ Time to take a break, then.

+ If you haven't been using SpotCollector, then after your break I suggest reviewing

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/CollectingSpots>;

+ and getting comfortable with how it works.

+ Take your time, and post questions here as you encounter them.

Hello,
I don't understand how to "add a column".
I've looked at the Help section but, at this point, I'm in "mental overload".
I think the problem is that I don't know what the finished product will look like.
If it matters, my interest would be rather local (confined to North America) as I would have only a MagneticLoopAntenna.
TIA for any help.

Objet: Re: [DXLab] Commander : slider command help pse

+ AA6YQ comments below
The <D3> is a format placeholder. It means, that the position of the
sider is first calculated as a number between "lower bound" and "upper
bound" in the slider definition and then converted to 3 decimal digits
replacing <D3>. Say your KX3 has a maximum mic gain from 0 to 100 and
the slider is excatly in the mid. You should get then from 'MG<D3>; a
'MG050; command. Looks that KX3 uses Kenwood commands.

+ Correct. Elecraft's documentation for the "Mic Gain" command is

SET/RSP format: MGxxx; where xxx is 000-060.

+ That means the slider value must be inserted into the command as a 3-digit number. The mechanism for inserting the slider value into a command is called a "Substitution String", and is documented here:

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/commander/Help/CommandSequences.htm#Substitution%20strings>

+ As you can see, <D3> is replaced by the slider's value represented as 3 unsigned decimal digits. The slider's lower bound should be set to 0, and its upper bound should be set to 60. If the Mic Gain slider command is specified as

'MG<D3>;

+ and you change the slider value to 25, then what will be sent to the radio is

MG025;

 

+ The Keyer Speed command is documented as

SET/RSP format: KSnnn; where nnn is 008-050 (8-50 WPM).

+ Like the MG command, the slider value should be presented with 3 decimal digits, with the lower-bound set to 8 and the upper bound set to 50.
