Re: WSJT-X and Logger32

Gary Hinson <Gary@...>
 

… specifically, you need chapter 15 of the User Manual on the UDP BandMap.

 

There are some usability advantages to JTDX over WSJT-X but they are similar and share most settings, so it’s fine to start out with WSJT-X. 

 

You may also find my FT8 Operating Guide useful: I’ve had a lot of positive comments from happy readers (which may just mean the unhappy ones don’t comment!).

I'm not being flippant Clifford, but read the manual..... WSJT-x is loaded by Logger32 and passes CAT control to WSJT.

Suggest you look at JTDX tho......

WSJT-X and Logger32

Clifford Beck
 

Hello All,

I’ve been trying to setup Logger 32 and WSJT-X with no luck.

I haven’t done any digital side of the hobby and would like to try it.

My radio is a Yaesu FT847. I’m using a cat control between radio and Logger 32.

When I open Logger 32 and WSJT-X they both want to use Com3 and that is the only option I’m given.

All guidance will be greatly appreciated

Thank you.

Clifford EI5FQB.


Re: Virtual Steppir Controller

Bob
 

In addition to the Logger32 'built in' VSC, I have a standalone version that you could conncet to the second antenna. Not sure how useful it would be, but I can send it to you if you're interested. SeventyThree(s).

My biggest problem with the virtual controller is that I have TWO SteppIR antennas and it is a pain to change COM ports back and forth should I want to control both.  Is it possible at some point to have TWO virtual controllers and a way to custom label the window when they come up so one knows which is which?  I hope this is not too much to ask.


WAB Worked All Britain Awards and NATS Navigation Aids to Shipping Refs

DamianM0BKV
 

 
 
I put an EXCEL database together for NATS Navigation Aids to Shipping from the Trinity House lists many years ago. The file is intetended to load into the 'Secondary Admin Award' files of Logger32 and used together with the WAB Squares files (all 8 countries/dependencies) fed into the 'Primary Admin Award' (alongside USA states and counties). There is Ordnance Survey Triangulation Point, UK Counties and Irish Counties Databases also.
The Databases make WAB award look-up easy including quickly finding a NATS reference no. In Logger32 when logging the QSO I put in the WAB square then hit the question mark at Secondary Admin and a list of available NATS appear in the drop-down box for that square. Same for other awards. The EXCEL files are available in the Files area of this group.

Re: HAMCAP Propagation Prediction Program

Michael Harris
 

John,

Do you launch HamCap stand alone or from the button in L32? I've not had any problems with stand alone. Launching with L32 has the advantage of passing log window call sign entry data and automatically plotting a prop chart.

I have been using HamCap for years in association with Ionocap which downloads iono data and passes a 90 day smoothed SSN to HamCap. A number of data sources have fallen off in the past couple of years.

I started having problems with HamCap when launched from L32. These I have resolved by building my own 90 day SSN. I then modify the Hamcap SSN.dat file with the 90 day SSN number, run HamCap and computed ALL BANDS and ALL HOURS maps and leave it like that for the month. I can then launch it from L32 without issues like multiple copies of voacap running and causing all sorts of problems including constant running swallowing up 50% of the PC clock cycles until you kill it off in task manager.

All I have to do is update the SSN.dat fille with the latest 90 day number for the month. I am currently basing the predictions on SSN 60 which seems to be in reasonable agreement with the published cycle 25 progress data.

Regards,

Mike VP8NO

Hi John-
Take a look VoaCap. Go direct to it’s url and bookmark it.
Move the Red marker to your qth and drag the Blue marker to a dx location.. 
 Click “Prop Wheel” first to get a feel for path/zulu times.
Then try the calc prediction chart etc.
You can also set an approx erp and antenna type.

There is a work-around “newer url” for HamCap too, but it’s a little erratic.

Hi Natalia,

 

Don’t worry, autoupdate problems can be very frustrating.

 

Let’s take it one step at a time.

 

  1. When you visit http://www1.logger32.net/autoupdates/updateList 4.0.txt in your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge …), do you something like this?   Yes/No

Hi Gary, so Sorry if I'm not clear as I wish 🙏 
When I try to access the latest version on my navigator I see the last one but when I try to update Looger 32 on any of my PC then the program shows me this (I'll attach a picture)

Hi, try to run Logger32 as administrator maybe this helps 73


Re: Loger32 V 4.0. Is not autoupdating #file-notice

Gary Hinson <Gary@...>
 

Aha!

 

OK, so you have a problem accessing the website to get the current version number.

 

That may be a temporary fault in the Internet, but since you said you have been trying since February, it is probably something more significant.

 

Just to confirm, when I visit https://www1.logger32.net/autoupdates/updateList%204.0.txt in my browser today, it works, sending back a line of text “4.0.292”

 

 

In your browser, can you access https://www1.Logger32.net/ at all? 

 

  • If yes, I am puzzled about why it won’t show the text file within a folder on the web server. 

 

  • If no, that means something is blocking your access to the website – possibly a firewall between your local network and the Internet, or a problem within your ISP.

What do you mean “all those steps” and “not working”, Natalia?

 

Please explain what you do up to the point that it stops working, and how you know it is “not working”: are there any error messages or clues for us?

 

You wouldn’t tell the doctor “It hurts!” and expect a cure, would you?

If you are using version 4.something, Natalia, section 2.10 of the User Manual explains autoupdates and section 2.10.1 should help resolve most autoupdate problems. 

 

If not, section 2.8 covers migrating to v4.
