Re: DXK , No FT8 / FT4 mode for manually enter

Joe,

Thanks for the info.  No, I do not have the modes.txt.

I was on 16.1.0 until few min ago.  Updated to 16.1.5 now FT8 and FT4 among other new things are on the list. 

Much obliged. 73, Kit


Re: DXK , No FT8 / FT4 mode for manually enter

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

Are you using the current version of DXKeeper?

Do you have a customized "Modes.txt" file in DXKeepeer's Databases
subdirectory?

A "DefaultModes.txt" file which includes FT4/FT8 as well as Q65 and
all of the newly defined "fldigi" sub-modes was included with DXKeeper
version 16.1.0 (20 Apr 2021).

What do I need to do to fix this?

+ DXKeeper was expanding the capacity of your log's Mode item from 8 characters to 12 characters, but was informed by Windows that
sufficient resources were unavailable - despite the change I made in this version of DXKeeper to reduce the resource requirements.
Please place your log file (AB2E.mdb) in a zip archive, attach the zip archive to an email message, and send the message to me via
