I’ve noticed that sometime during a Mode Switch (Ie, from MSK32 to BPSK125),

there is a pause of about 15 seconds and then the program continues.

This can occur when sending or when receiving.

It does NOT occur every time and it also does NOT always occur on the

same mode switch.  So I can’t make it repeat.

 

When it happens on send, you try to send, system pauses for 15 seconds,

no transmit during the pause, then the mode switches and program

transmits the message.

 

When it happens on receive, you receive the mode switch ID, system

pauses for 15 seconds, and then continues to operate normally.  Of course

by that time you have missed the first part of the message and quite often the

entire message.

 

Things I have tried:

 

Recompile the latest source.

Switched from PI3 to PI3 Plus.

Lock the PI in Turbo mode.

Yesterday I re-compiled on the new PI4.

Also tried the FLDigi that is in the Buster Repository.

 

All to no avail.  Still get the pause sometimes on mode switch.

 

Question:  Am I missing something in the Compile Options –

should I be setting any special switches?

 

Is there something happening during the mode switch that

would cause FLDigi to pause.

 

Appreciate any help.

Re: IK6AWY report

 - the QTH field value from FLdigi is imported in ACL in the "QTH Grp"
 field and not in the "QTH" field (this is an error).

Scott, N3FJP, states: AC Log doesn't have a dedicated QTH field.

 -  The frequency value is imported in ACL with "." separation and not
 with "," separation (this is an other error) ...

This might be corrected by the setlocale(LC_ALL,"") inclusion.  I have no convenient way to test on my computers.

Re: SV1GRB reported lost fields in logbook.adif

This might be corrected by the Win10 writeLog modification.

Dave,

Thanks for the reference. & I have all my Indians. Three are in a cabin which was just high enough to keep them out of water when "Harvey" drowned the island. Much to do yet, when it's not burning hot, clean out the cabins! We shall see how good they still are.
