Enhancement suggestions

Having recently switched over from XMLOG to Logger, I miss the
ability to get "voice" spots via the program. It's helpful to
be working around the shack and hear all the spots verbally
instead of having to look at the computer screen. The XMLOG
software did this rather nicely. Any chance this could be looked
at for a future release.

Also, it would be nice to also be able to click on a spot from
within the packet window in order to QSY my TS-850S/AT.

Just a couple of quick ideas that I miss since switching over
(not that I have any intention of going back...)

Steve you can turn off the "Packet Cluster Window" after you're connected.
You will notice in the upper right corner that the "DX Cluster" window
contains the spots. If you click on the spot you want the rig WILL QSY to
the appropriate frequency and, if set up correctly, the appropriate mode.

I usually have the Packet Cluster Window off and the DATA port open looking
at RTTY etc.

Well Steve, assumming the "packet window" you speak of is the
small display at the top right, Logger will do exactly what you
sayl put the call in the log window and set your radio right on
the spot.

Another small point, you do NOT have to be connected to utilize
the "packet window".

Thanks for the reply. To clarify however, there's a small "DX Cluster"
window (upper right) and then the "Packet Cluster" window.

If I sit down in the shack, turn on the 2m rig & tnc and then connect
to the local cluster there are NO spots in the "DX Cluster" window (yet).
So I type SH/DX in the "Packet Cluster" window to find out what the last
few spots have been while my packet gear was offline. In the XMLOG soft-
ware I was able to click in this window and QSY the radio too. I was just
curious if it could be done in LOGGER or not. I guess not !!! It's really
not a big deal to have to MANUALLY tune the rig for those first few spots
until the "DX Cluster" window starts listing the spots.

Did I understand that you don't even need to be connected for the "DX
Cluster" window to fill up with spots?


I really like this LOGGER program !!!

Steve Logger will allow you to use the "DX Cluster" window to click and QSY
BUT that window only receives data for DX spots that occur AFTER you have
connected. So a Show/DX won't be of much help in that case. Stay connected
for a while or send a DX spot as a test and see what happens.

Yes Logger will pick up the packets and post them even if not connected BUT
unless you have a great path (I don't) it's risky since you're never sure if
ALL the packets are being received.

Yes, you definitely do not have to be connected to get spots in
the small window. Am trying to get Bob to extend the filter
capability to the Cluster window also. Remember, any filters you
set for packet are ONLY applicable to the small window.


BTW, Bob told me yesterday that he expects to release the first
version of Zanakaka ( or however it's spelled ) by the end of the
week.

Perhaps something to ease your minds in this particular case. The
packet code is set to look at the next spot which appears and
see if it is substantially equal to the last one. For example,
let's say you are monitoring a cluster with 20 people connected.
I put out a spot. That spot is then sent to the other 19
connections by the cluster. So, in essense, you have in this
example 19 chances of getting the spot. Just imagine the first 5
or so are missing some iformation. Since they do not represent
the proper protocal for packet, they are ignored. Let's say #8
comes through OK. You will see it displayed, and of course , #9
through ? are ignored. Of course, the odds of your getting the
packet under marginal conditions are a function of the number of
individuals connected to the node.
