Sound Card

k3pto <jlcdlc@...>
 

I am installing a new PC and have run into a problem: Logger tells me that there are no sound cards detected. The PC is a Dell Optiplex 740 with Windows 7 32 bit pro. It does have High Def Sound. Do I need to install a separate sound card? If so, any idea why?

Sorry if this has been covered but I tried searching and did not find anything. Also, I apologize if this is a duplicate - I have not posted in awhile.


Logging page question

Michael Herron
 

Can the logging page be adjusted so that the most recent QSO is at the top of the page instead of the bottom?
Also does the DXCC column only show the number corresponding to the entity or can it be changed to show the actual name of the entity?
If not I am sure I will get used to it.
I am slowly getting things set up the way I like them and getting myself migrated from AClog.
Sure like what I see so far! I spent some time figuring out those pesky bad.adi files but they are all resolved now.

New release of Logger32. Ver 3.34.0

Geoff Anderson <Geoff.Anderson@...>
 

Hi All,

After a bit of an unforeseen delay the team members are now finally preparing for a new release of Logger32 (Ver3.34.0) hopefully within the next few days. As has now become the norm. I give below and advanced copy of the changes made to the new version so you can see what is coming.

Enjoy.

Release change notes for Ver 3.34.0 as of....... 19 Aug 2011
================================================

Note - Item 1 below was actually contained within the version 3.33.0 release
- there have been two interim maintenance releases - Ver 3.33.7 and 3.33.18

1) Two new rotors should now be visible on the Rotor Setup Window.
(GS232B AZ/AZ A and GS232B AZ/AZ B) to support the new ERC-M interface


2) A new option in the Telnet Local host menu allows for the main Telnet blocking filters to be used or
not as desired for this window .


3) Change made to the Previous QSO window to stop it automatically opening every time a call is entered in
the "Logbook Entry" window?


4) The IOTA Activity window is now sizeable in both the horizontal and vertical directions (just like DX Activity window).


5) A code change has been made that may (or may not) help the reported problem with DX Spot and Worked/Confirmed
Windows not aligning [vertically] the grid properly.


6) Cleared the problem of non printable characters appearing on the Local Host screen when looking at a cluster.


7) The country name now appears in the upper status bar when clicking on a callsign in previous QSO window.


8) When using the "Add QSO" facility the incremental seconds addition for QSO having the same time was not resetting
correctly at the next minute.


9) Maintenance release 3.33.16 fixes a bug in the release 3.33.7 that caused the MESSAGES tab of the Telnet/Cluster window
to display incorrectly.


10) File export - Changes made to allow the user to specify the QSL file export &#92;path&#92;filename and for Logger32 to remember it
The same has also been applied to the two backup selections (Logbook & User files). Both changes simplify the generating of
backups without having to specify the path each time.


11) Under some circumstances the Previous QSOs Windows populated, cleared,
and populated a second time. Bug cleared.


12) Change made so that Search Window does not automatically close when the Logbook Page Window looses focus.


13) Minor bug associated with the Internet callsign window that didn't close on clicking on a new spot report cleared


14) A VSC (Virtual SteppIR Controller) introduced. See new antenna icon on the icon bar.


15) Logbook Entry window now allows the form style/colour of the user. Previously the form was fixed in Windows
classic colours.


16) 6M added to the CQDXField awards table.


17) Bug cleared whereby transverter offset was not being applied in the Orion support software when setting the
radio frequency via the CAT control.


18) A simple sanity check for the user defined transverter freq offset has been added.


19) When using "incremented time" on entering QSOs manually the TIME_OFF field was being populated with 00:00:00


20) When using dual radios in SO2R a DXspot selected from the DXSpot table worked correctly but
doing the same from the DXSpot map caused Logger32 to crash when a change of radio was involved.


21) A number of cosmetic changes have been made to:-

CW Machine and its associated macro setup window
Data Terminal Window and its associated macro setup window
Sound Card Data and its associated macro setup window
Logbook Entry Window and Online Lookup Window (formerly the QRZ lookup).
DVK and the Radio Debug Windows.


22) Bug cleared that under certain circumstances did not allow the correct transference of the QSL_Via field from previous QSO information


23) Simple bug fix of a 'focus' issue that happened only when slow typing was enabled in the CWMachine.


24) Auto band switching added to the 87A Support interface - as a user option.


25) There has been a MAJOR rewrite of the Stats and database referential integrity code to make things faster, and
to see test changes to the IOTA query window (the ? next to the IOTA field on the logbook entry window) and the IOTA
activity window. A recalc stats for all logbooks will be required.


26) EA4TX Rotor bug fixed

Tjeerd,

There are two program used in the conversion of Logger16 to Logger32.
"Conversion.exe" and "ConvertNotestoLogger32.exe".
Both of these utilities are included in the Logger32 full Install package.

I suggest you leave your Logger16 installed and Download the latest
version of Logger32 (V 3.33.18) and install it in a separate folder.
Open the help file and follow the instructions for converting your logbook
and notes.

Please advise if you need assistance with the conversion.

Hello,
sorry to bother you again but this evening I faced out another issue in

Usually I use ARSWIN to manage my rotor: when I use such configuration,
then on the Tracking Window (using the Azimuthal view) I see a line
indicating the current antenna direction.

This evening I was trying (more or less...) another rotor interface
which acts as a YAESU device (GS232A or B , no matter). So I removed the
ARSWIN configuration from rotor 1 and replaced with the YAESU device
configured on the proper com port: all is working as expected (on the
debug window I see the poll & reply frames) but the direction line in
the tracking window disappeared. If I go back to ARSWIN, then the line
magically reappears.
I've tried also to create a clean LOGGER32.ini just to be sure it was
not a dirty setting, but it turned to no avail.

Probably I'm missing some configuration item (I had a quick view in the
help file, but found nothing). Is there anyone out of there that could
point me in the proper direction?

Re: Tracking window & antenna direction

Jim Hargrave <w5ifp@...>
 

Luca,

Does Logger32 command the rotor using the Yaesu interface?
Either using CTRL+A or clicking on the rotor pane. Does the antenna rotate
to the target position?

If the rotor actually rotates and just does not indicate position on the
tracking map, then there is perhaps an unexpected response.
Please make a screen capture of the rotor de-bug window. i would suggest you
command the rotor and then after a few seconds freeze the de-bug pane and
scroll back so the command is at the top line and then capture it and a few
poll lines following the command.

Please send that to me by direct e-mail
thanks,

I don't know who prepares the German version of the help file. If you know

Feri,

The reason you are getting the "no rotor" error is that you have not
correctly configured the Rotor in the latest version of Logger32.

Logger32 now supports up to 9 rotors and MUST also be configured in the
BandMode chart. You must insert a rotor number for each frequency segment
that uses the rotor. The "Setup | Rotor" is now different.

Please read the rotor documentation in the latest help file. It has examples
of the rotor setup.

G'day,

Just for perspective, I've got a USB>RS232 converter with a Prolific
chipset that I bought from Elecraft a few years ago with my K3. It
worked fine on my old WinXP Pro system and it works fine on my new Win7
Pro 64 bit system. The answer lies in the drivers. To be fair, others
have had problems.

Out of interest, given a recent thread, I connected up my PST61D rotator
controller to the PC (physical RS232 port, Byterunner two port card) and
set up the rotator control in Logger32 and that worked without issue.
Never thought to use it before and the only slight irritation is that
the Az/Eq projection isn't round (aspect ratio is locked) but that is
possibly down to the display resolution 1600 x 900 wide screen.
However, the map isn't absolutely necessary but it is useful.

Mike,

My 20 in monitor defaults to 1900 x 900. I found that a resolution of 1224 x
768 makes the Tracking map very symmetrical. It is also a little easier on
my tired eyes.
