When I switched on today all was working. Maybe I just needed to rebbot the rig, the rig software or the Logger Software, or all of them???? Anyway is seems to work most of the time, although this morning when on 20m I clicked between FT4 and FT8, the rig didnt follow every time.....

Anyway I'll continue playing with it and increasing my computer knowledge........ ;-)

There are several clues Tom that the Control Panel is connected to JTDX which is controlling your radio via CAT and Hamlib (or something!).
A: The JTDX Control Panel should /not/ say *Control Panel not connected*
B: The JTDX caption should have “& Logger32” … and only a cross in the top right corner, not the minimize and restore icons like most other windows.
C: The blob left of the JTDX frequency should be green, not orange or red as the popup message says. I forget what the S means though. Superb, perhaps. Stunning? Sassenach?

The dummies guide to Logger - hihi.
That's what we need. Maybe I tend to overthink things from time to
One question.... From the JTDX control panel, if I change bands and
mode from FT8 or ft4, or switch from 20m FT8. To 15m ft4, should
the rig auto switch to follow the panel? Coz mine doesn't... Bear
in mind, I'm still getting to grips with my SDR....

Thanks Tom. You're /not/ a computer dummy, idiot or dolt - just
someone struggling to get to grips with the technology, like all
of us - definitely me anyway*.
You're right: "Open -> JTDX" should say "Start -> JTDX". My
fault! That will be corrected in the next release of the Manual.
I'll add a link from the relevant bit on page 211 to somewhere
I will add a few words about "Control Panel not connected" as well.
In my defence, the JTDX Contrrol Panel is a new toy for v4, one
I have barely even taken out of the box so far. As I'm writing
this email, in playing with it I appear to have put the control
panel too close to the Windows notification area so it is now in
the background, greyed out and inaccessible in the bottom right
corner of my screen ...
* Yesterday afternoon it got so hot in the shack that my PC
shutdown suddenly, without warning. I have since cleaned the
CPU heatsink of dust and configured the CPU temperature
monitoring utility to give me a warning next time (hopefully,
anyway: there is no "Test this alert" button so I won't know if
it works unti it nearly overheats again ...). I've also
discovered that the Word autorecover function had not been
saving yesterday's Manual edits every 9 mins as configured, so I
lost a few hours' editing. Grrrr, thanks a bunch Micro$oft. I
/think/ I have it autorecovering now, but again there's no

Subject: Re: [hamlogger] Question JTDX Control Panel
I found esily enough the section in the Manual marked
Open UDP Bandmap Page 211
I scrolled down till I found
14.2 UDP Bndmap Menu
then scrolling further - SHOW JTDX CONTROL PANEL
following this instruction I opened the JTDX Control Panel -
nice wee box
which said "Control Panel Not Connected"....
I couldnt find anything in the box, to make it connect........
back to the manual under Show JTDX Control Panel it says:
"Provided you launch JTDX using OPEN JTDX from UDP Bandmap Menu"
I searched the Bandmap Menu but could not find a command
marked OPEN JTDX.
Now as you know I am a computer dummy. This flummoxed me till I
pressed - START - not OPEN JTDX but START.
This threw up another popup window SETUP SHORTCUTS entitled Setup
Start Menus. It of course was blank and I was quick to deduce
was supposed to type something inthe various columns, so back to
Manual. I searched for "Startup Menu" "OPEN JTDX" etc,
figured there would be page showing the SETUP SHORTCUTS, so I
ran through half of the manual hoping the page I was looking for
my eye, which it eventually did. And, so now I can start JTDX
within Logger Bandmap. So I am one setp forward. I looked
Radio 1 command menus for a moment or two before deciding I
could do without them initially as the manual for my SDR is
again rather complicated, but figure I can setup the radio
So all I am really saying - I suppose, is that a link in page
211 pointing to the startup menu, might be helpfull to idiots
like me who need to be hand held when dealing with something
The Manual is 727 pages long and it is highly unlikely I will
it out. I have no doubt that it is very comprehensive, and I
doubt that after a few emails from idiots like me, there might
be a few edits and addedendums.
I just find it hard to try to follow a manual on a screen whilst
trying to do what the manual says on the same screen and every
time you click something, the bloody thing minimises and I'm
jumping backwards and forwards all the time......
Anyway - keep up all the good work for dolts like me.... no
doubt I will mail you again for something else......... :-)

just one, which is right in the relevant section 14.2.4 (luckily!).
