Odd behaviour starting v3.50.403 today

Paul Evans W4/VP9KF
 

I went to start Logger32 today after the auto-update of v3.50.403 yesterday. Up comes an install sequence for Roxio LJB! I stopped it and tried again. Same result. I swapped the current logger32.exe for the previous one and still the same. Odd. I rebooted and still the same. Checked path being used by shortcut. OK. In the meantime my xyl's machine squarked for a MalwalreBytes install. Set that off. Then I came back and updated my Malwarebytes [thinking "You never know, do you?"]. Weeeeeeell. Very weird. MalwareBytes asks for a reboot after install. It boots and then logger32 runs as normal.
I don't know what logger32, Roxio LJB and MalwareBytes all have to do with each other, but there's something!
PC: Toughbook CF-55 16GB Win10Pro. MalwareBytes and SpyBot S&P don't detect any problems.

73,

Paul W4/VP9KF [and G4BKI]

hello I been still running into problems with the lookup L32 and am asking if this is the normal route. Keeps coming up with a comment unable to find QRZ Module.. When I look in the settings for external module I find this in the settings. (C:\Logger32\XMLLookup.exe). is there a different pne I am a QRZ Subscriber.

Thanks and 73

I guess one other though.  When I tick “Block callsigns with no highlight from my country” in UDP Config, callsigns with the grid highlighted are not included what gets shown.  That might be nice to have.

It also occurs with not needed gridsquares, i.e. to9w this morning, even though the gridsquare was in the udp message (debug window open), and give rise to a tooltip, it was not visible.  The invisible gridsquare also allowed me to send a cluster spot.  Hope this helps.

Stephanie, sorry to hear about your grandfather. Condolences to you and your family for the thousands of radio hams who are at this mail address. If you have followed your grandfathers hobby Stephanie, you'll know we're a strange breed. We have friends and kindred spirits around the world. People we will never meet in person, but consider them close personal friends. Dale was one of us, he will be missed. Thanks for the courtesy of the update. Our best wishes to you and the family. Bob / K4CY.

The little LCD display is bright and clear.  I have tried the VGA output on a large screen but it’s no better for me and just wastes desk space.

 

It shows lots of useful things:

  • My noise floor on different bands and antennas, and hour-by-hour variations
  • Where the signals are when I’m tuning across a quiet band hunting for signs of life
  • How much activity is there on FT8, FT4, RTTY or other digimode segments
  • Where DX stations are transmitting, and where they are working split, tuning through or jumping around in their pileups
  • Gaps in a busy band where I might CQ, or gaps in a DX pileup where I might call the DX.
  • QRN bursts – are they strong/frequent enough to make the band unusable, or only light & occasional?
  • QRM from radar, intruders, pirates, data crud from my station etc. – would it help to shift HF or LF to avoid them?
  • ‘Sweepers’ from the sun on an active high band, plus human tuners

 

The only thing I really miss from my SDR setup is the ability to overlay callsigns from cluster spots or Skimmer or (I guess) data decoders, on the waterfall.  It would be too much for the little P3 LCD but would be handy on a desktop screen.   [I used a Flex radio in CQ WW CW with a front-panel panadaptor display that could show callsigns: it was too crowded & busy for my liking, but then I only had a few hours in the dead of night during the contest to learn how to use the radio!]

 

So, all in all, I’m a convert.  The P3 has turned out to be a worthwhile addition to my station, more use than the 2nd K3 in fact!

 

The P3 box is mostly empty.  I’m tempted to separate out the LCD to fill a more convenient gap right in my eye-line rather than off to one side.  Maybe I’ll try adding a little external display instead.

I havent figured out why I need some fancy colored screen to show me who is on the band. I dont use the scope on the 7300 either. To each their own but it seems like just eye candy to sell radios. Being pretty much a dxer I just watch the spots .

There are options though.

I have an FTDX5000, LP-Pan 2 + Soundcard + NaP3/CW Skimmer. The CAT from the rig is shared (including to/from Logger32) via LPBridge.

If you just want to try a panadapter get one of those cheap SDRs you find on eBay/Amazon and feed it from the IF out on the back of the FTDX5000. You tune the SDR to 9MHz and you get a 'reversed display' ie if you are Rxing to USByou need to tune the SDR to LSB, well thats what I found.

SDR# (SDR Sharp) supports the cheap RTL-SDR USB devices and you can buy these with an HF down-converter. They're not very sensitive but they give you an idea of what you can see. Just don't buy an VHF only version.

I hardly use the NaP3 visual display expect during an SSB contest or looking at interference, but I use CW Skimmer all the time..

Thanks Dave. Well I am in the same boat as you pretty much. I'm not sue I really need one so not sure if I am willing to put out the expenditure plus the time needed to get it all working for what it really does. I had one working on my FT2000, not fully integrated with my Logger and it really didn't excite me that much. But I figured Santa has been asking me what I want and I have been a good boy....

If you just want to try a panadapter get one of those cheap SDRs you find on eBay/Amazon and feed it from the IF out on the back of the FTDX5000. You tune the SDR to 9MHz and you get a 'reversed display' ie if you are Rxing to USByou need to tune the SDR to LSB, well thats what I found.

SDR# (SDR Sharp) supports the cheap RTL-SDR USB devices and you can buy these with an HF down-converter. They're not very sensitive but they give you an idea of what you can see. Just don't buy an VHF only version.

I hardly use the NaP3 visual display expect during an SSB contest or looking at interference, but I use CW Skimmer all the time..

JIm, in theory, you buy a cheap (relatively speaking) SDR seeing as all you're only looking for is to use it for the eye candy. So, IMHO, pick one with the eye candy that suits you. You connect it to the slave port of Logger32. Turn the dial of your boat anchor, and the eye candy follows. This has been implements by many Logger32 users, but I'd suggest you don't hold your breath for response to your query. This reflector has the worst case of one-way-skip. The only setup needed is configure the slave port to match whatever radio your SDR emulates, then also to match radio modes between your boat anchor and the SDR ... for example, the boat anchor may have CW modes of CW-L and CW-U and the SDR may only have a mode CW. There's a configuration option that lets you map the two radio so they understand each other. One last thing, once you get hooked on the eye candy, you'll be glad to hear that it is not simply a slave receiver. Change the SDR mode/frequency and the boat anchor will follow. Good luck.

Contemplating buying and installing an SDR to use as a Panadapter but would like to chat within anyone who is currently doing this. Doesn't need to be a FTdx-5000, any rig would probably help me out. Not being a computer wiz, I am trying to figure out exactly what I would need and whether once installed everything would continue to work as it currently does. Meaning being able to launch WSJT-X from within Logger32 and having both apps and the SDR work together to control the rig, log any contacts etc. From what I am able to discern I would need the SDR and possibly another sound card, some port splitting software and some other rig control software. 
I would love to chat with someone off line about exactly how to do all of this. Thanks!

Very thank you Bob. Maybe I requested this feature because I was an accountant 73
