So what's happening in California? Wall to wall special event stations W6A to W6whatever. Is this possibly a pre-cremation event, where they're going out in a blaze of glory (pun intended). SeventyThree(s), and enjoy your immolation.

Re: how do you record contacts in the logger32 made on satellite?

Bob
 

On the Logbook Entry Window there seven user configurable fields. You can set any ADIF field to these user fields. Right click on the Callsign field, click SETUP. Here you see menus to SHOW USER FIELDS and to SETUP USER FIELDS. You can setup a SAT field like this. 73.

I'd still like to see a picture of the Radio Debug Window when the 'problem' manifests itself. 73.

Hello Bob

No joy with transceive off with echo on or off. No change with stop bits either 1 or 2 but it did take 2 which suprised me. As for changing the sleep time, N1MM never fails on that, so I dont think that is the issue.

But I have noticed one big diff between L32 and N1MM (which works). I have it configured for COM20 in N1MM. If I try to configure L32 for COM20 although it is in the drop down menu for radio setup when I set the port to 20 and try it
,I get a "COM  port doesnt exist message". Do I remember seeing somewhere that L32 cannot handle COM ports about 15 or somesuch ? Maybe that is the problem. BUT - if I configure the radio to work via a CT-17 to a real (not USB) COM port , in my case COM14, I still get the frequency drop out problem. Methinks all this is maybe a W7 issue. I have ordered a big thumb drive to back up all my files and will then reluctantly convert to W10.

Version 4 issues

n5kd
 

I can’t seem to post to the version 4 beta group any more, so I’ll put it here for now.

 

I’m having two separate issues at the moment.

 

I can’t upgrade any more. I’m getting a message about MSHFLXGD.OCX not registered. Error on line 3340.

 

 

 

 

The second issue is the help file. The help file itself opens with windows expolerer, so I’m pretty sure that file is okay.

However, when I try to open it from the main L32 screen – Help -help, it opens this window. Really.

Hello
I noticed The radio doesnt change frequency when I click callsign on
bandmap.Its over 14.150 Mhz ...Below all is OK .On the other bands
almost everything is OK Any suggestions ??

Agree with the Echo Bob, if its not on, no radio information is returned to the logger, like QRG and Band info etc.

Let me offer some input to this discussion.

Instead of analyzing every bodies radio setup, to see who’s computer is fastest, I suggest you configure a basic radio interface.

 

Try the following suggestions for starters.

 

1)      Suggest setting Radio Baud rate to 9600 FIXED” Rate. “Never use AUTO”.

2)      Set Logger32 to the same rate

3)       Set Polling interval to “500”.

4)      Set/verify  Icom address Is the same in Logger32 and Radio.

5)      Set Stop bits to “2”

6)      Set Computer port “Sleep time” to “NEVER” .

 

These settings should result in solid communications between radio and computer/Logger32.

 

The main objective is to getting them talking , without burning rubber.

do please accept my thanks for it. Freeware and great support ? Not many others like that so you can be very proud of it.

Regarding the entry of calls into the logbook entry window, previously instantaneous, so I rolled back to 3.50.394 and hey now the calls go in there fast again. No more lag
at all !. Then I uploaded 422 again and now the calls go in just as fast. Surely one for "Go figure...." I have checked the radio settings as you suggest.
Not possible in the IC7300 menus to go above 19200 baud so I have left it at 9600 where it was. Putting CI-V transceive
to OFF (I had it ON) resulted in no frequency change on VFO movement so I changed it back to ON and it is responding to QSY's again. I have tried playing with all settings
of polling times and nothing makes any difference. Used the radio debug window and indeed the frequency went to 0.00 when the prog lost the frequency. I have attached
a screen dump of when it happened. So the loss of frequency still happens very often unfortunately.

Now hear this.. Tried my W10 laptop and no prob with call entries or frequency. Everything stable. So I suppose the next step - taken reluctantly as I really dont like W10- is
to upgrade my W7 machine to W10. I've ordered a large thumb drive to back everything up and then will try again.

  2. CI-V USB 38400

I suggest you just check the IC 7300 to ascertain these settings?

Hi Ron

My 7300 shows in the CI-V USB Baud Rate a maximum setting of 115200 which I use with Logger32.
You said yours is not going above 19200 but you use 9600.
Why not use 19200??

Hi Bob

Not to imply that your program isnt the best there is..... ! I have been using it since 1995 - that's an excellent 25 years - and only recently have I run into problems with it. So
do please accept my thanks for it. Freeware and great support ? Not many others like that so you can be very proud of it.

Regarding the entry of calls into the logbook entry window, previously instantaneous, so I rolled back to 3.50.394 and hey now the calls go in there fast again. No more lag
at all !. Then I uploaded 422 again and now the calls go in just as fast. Surely one for "Go figure...." I have checked the radio settings as you suggest.
Not possible in the IC7300 menus to go above 19200 baud so I have left it at 9600 where it was. Putting CI-V transceive
to OFF (I had it ON) resulted in no frequency change on VFO movement so I changed it back to ON and it is responding to QSY's again. I have tried playing with all settings
of polling times and nothing makes any difference. Used the radio debug window and indeed the frequency went to 0.00 when the prog lost the frequency. I have attached
a screen dump of when it happened. So the loss of frequency still happens very often unfortunately.

Now hear this.. Tried my W10 laptop and no prob with call entries or frequency. Everything stable. So I suppose the next step - taken reluctantly as I really dont like W10- is
to upgrade my W7 machine to W10. I've ordered a large thumb drive to back everything up and then will try again.

Others commenting. Thanks but are you using W7 or W10 please ?

73 and thanks again for your help. Stay safe

Ron
