What level should the Receiving Level be for WSJT?

W6SA
 

Since getting the rig to work with the USB Virtual drivers I notice things are a bit different.

The Volume Control has no effect on the Receiving Level.  It is staying right around the 60 dB level when the AGC is set for AUTO.  If I turn OFF the AGC it can peak up into the red and the volume control still has no noticeable effect on the level.

I don't see a noticeable difference when adjusting the audio level for either of the USB CODEC's.

Is this normal behavior? 

I was running with an Interface device using USB prior to switching to USB Virtual ports, which allowed me to get rid of a lot of wiring and a couple pieces of equipment.  With that setup the Volume Control did have an effect on the Receiving Level.

I'm sorry to have so many questions but being a Newbie to SDR radios I am a fish out of water.

Every day is a new learning experience.

Thank you to all the people that have offered assistance.

One thing I do is load the CW (or voice) memories, use them to transmit into a dummy, and listen on another rig on a dummy or antenna, whichever gives adequate signal levels.  That way I can hear for myself what it sounds like.

left click the speaker  icon on the right side of your task bar and select your computer sound  card ........not usb audio codec

The speaker in my FPS101 is significantly larger in diameter than 4".  I look more like ~5" or so.

the original is 2.750 inches tall  diatone is 2.750 tall

Will the diatone speaker fit into the fps-101 for the MP? Looks close?

Ray, Thank you for all of your contributions to this thread that I started. Please do let us know how the Diatone works out for you. From my perspective, it looks as if it is too deep, although mine is a recent model of the FPS-101 and I haven’t taken the cover off to make measurements since this thread started. Perhaps Yaesu redesigned the power supply part of the unit and mine is deeper than yours. Ken, W3ESH


And now for something completely different...

W6SA
 

The USB AUDIO CODEC has hijacked my computer audio!

I have an internal audio card and also have the choice of using an external USB audio card.  Since I only recently installed the CODEC's,no matter which one I want to use requires that I choose it over the CODEC.  This then gives me my computer audio again but if I try to transmit FT8 the audio signal just blasts from my speakers and of course I transmit no over the air signal

JTAlert has the ability to choose the audio card I want to use and it works fine but the computer itself will not produce sound unless I switch the audio output to the audio card which then stops me from transmitting FT8.

FT8 is my priority but it would be nice to be able to get audio out of my computer.

Has any one else had this difficulty and found a solution?

Re: DX4WIN

I'm guessing I messed a setting up in the 101 menu. Still will not change the mode.

Frustrating. 73 John W9RPM

Just checked this. Was in CW mode, double clicked on an SSB spot on a different band, radio qsy'd and mode changed to USB. Also worked in reverse. 
I have had DX4WIN lock up twice on exit recently, but once was pre new firmware and once post. 

Good luck,
Steve, WF3T

Hi, was wondering if anyone is using DX4WIN for Rig control with the
101? Mine will changed Frequency now after update, but not mode. Was
wondering if it has something to do with the Preset Function. I am not
sure if I understand that yet. I may have a setting wrong. How do I
completely disable the preset function?

Thanks, John W9RPM

Re: DO NOT UPGRADE FIRMWARE - microHAM

Carl Yaffey
 

I have had no trouble with WSJT-X and the new firmware until a few minutes ago. I go the dreaded “hamlib” error.
After trying things like rebooting, reloading the driver, etc. I finally started up flrig and went to settings and did an init. It uses the same com port. WSJT now working fine. ???????

DO NOT UPGRADE FIRMWARE - microHAM

Eric
 

microHAM America (W4TV)
Apr 10   

It appears that Yaesu have broken the CAT firmware in their
most recent firmware update to the FTdx101. The "get mode"
command (MD#;) now returns an error response.

This "bug" (or undocumented change) breaks compatibility with
all microHAM "keyer" interfaces and may impact all of your
logging/contest software.

*DO NOT* Update your FTdx101 firmware until this issue has been
resolved.

I am trying to upload the new FW, not doing very gud. I have a Sand disk 32GBSD card and using Winzip to unzip files. I have formatted the sd card several times now .
I see the FW  files on the computer. When I try to do the firm ware update it says 'no such files', is it telling me the SD card is bad? or the files are not loaded on it.
 Any help wud be appreciated.

I had the same problem when I tried the first upgrade but not tried this one yet. You need to copy the files and paste them in the folder on the left and not the open folder area on the right. The image I attached is obviously not from the SD card as I'm not at that computer. But imagine that the Documents directory circled in blue is the FTDX101 folder on your SD card. Highlight the firmware files and right click on Copy. Then highlight Documents (FTDX101D in the actual case) and right click and select paste. Don't just drop the files in the open are that I have placed the red X. For some reason, that fixed the issue for me. 

If I get chance I could try and get a snip of the actual window.

Re: No ALC in Digital Modes

Mike Cooper
 

I had the understanding that in FT8 your want very little ALC. I adjust the ALC for max power output which translate to very little ALC on the meter.

I have K1EL WinKeyer USB, WSJT, HRD, N1MM, JS8 Call, WinLink (though I am having issues with this right now) and Log4OM for SOTA.  

I use the USB for CAT and audio.  Run WSJT and use HRD as the "radio".  Logs forwarded automatically to HRD and to QRZ through the forwarding UDP port.  I am running the Georgia QSO party on N1MM using the WInKeyer as we speak.  I have also been using Diversity receive with 2 different antennas into the 2 VFOs and listening in stereo.  I am in a skipo zone for parts of GA and have a G5RV and a vertical.  Rather fun to hear how the phase and polarization shifts.

No issues here at all.  I just followed the instructions of backing up my files to the SD card before I updated, then restored them after the reset.  I did a full update.  Zeros issues.

No problems with internal keyer here with Rev "A" on my MP.  Used the keyer by itself and then with N1MM+ controlling the rig.
