Yeah, WSJT-X is the weird one that does not seem to play nice with everything else. I have the same problem. I can have three or four apps all working just fine via VSPE, then I open WSJT-X and it takes over from everything else.

If I were to guess, it may be something to do with how often WSJT-X polls for data. If I were more ambitious and worried about it, I would set up a serial sniffer to monitor the traffic between devices. Too low on my priority list to think about.

Kevin,
I setup VSPE per your instructions. Opened AC Log, set it to the virtual port and it works. Change frequency on the IC-7300 and it changes on AC Log.
Opened WSJT-X set it up and it works. Change frequency on the IC-7300 and it changes it on WSJT-X, BUT...the frequency no longer changes on AC Log. Click Polling and it is blank.

If the software has a way to send UDF files, there is a Python Script that will intercept the UDF, forment it to work with N3FJP Logs, and send the formatted contact to ACLog.

I have been using Slice-Master in the past to start and connect CW Skimmer and WSJT to my Flex 6400. The software worked well and allowed CW Skimmers on both Slices. 

What if any connection with AC Log is possible with Slice Master or CW Skimmer? I don't see anything in the Help and groups.io does not mention Slice Master. CW Skimmer connection is not indicated from what I scanned in groups.io.

Trying to run WSJT via Slice Master didn't work. I seemed to be out of sequence or delayed somehow and got no response to my calls. This was while JTAlert was up with WSJT and JT alert was connected to ACLog. I am unsure how they all connect or if they should be all connected. 

Anyone with any experience trying to run Slice Master, CW Skimmer and ACLog? 

And, anyone try to run WSJT via Slice Mater and ACLog connected to JTAlert?

I can re-create this display anomaly by editing an entry, don't have to change anything, then just click DONE.

I have used VSPE for several years with good results. The biggest issue I have seen is incorrect configuration. Here's the step-by-step I use.

Open VSPE
Create New Device (Either click the icon with the connector and red star or Device > Create)
Under Device Type select Splitter, then NEXT
Under Virtual serial port select an unused port
Under Data source serial port select the physical serial port connected to your equipment (this can be determined in Device Manager)
Click Finish

Now go into the configuration for your various applications and point them to the virtual port you just created.

Walt,

I use Eterlogic VSPE always, and have for a very long time, and it works reliably and very well with ACLog in combination with many other applications. ACLog will see the port you create, and not know the difference between it and any real physical port.

 

If the settings you are using for that rig are correct, and have worked in the past, then the settings in VSPE are not right.

 

Since you haven’t included How you setup VSPE or any of the Settings for the port in VSPE, I’m afraid I can’t be of any more assistance.

If you can provide your settings from VSPE, I can try and help.

Re: 30 Meter pwr setup

Kevin Gray
 

Dave,

After you’re done with the bulk edit to record your power to the value you actually used.

Then try this, for future contacts :

In WSJT-X when you complete a contact, and the Log Window pops up, (either automatically or by pressing Log Contact, in WSJT-X {depending on your settings})

Fill-in the appropriate field for Power and Check the box to retain this setting, for any future contact. That should get you what you want, going forward.
