Thanks Wes. Yes I noticed that if I 'stopped' the radio, FT8 would stick in the 'mode'. Maybe an enhancement for DX4Winv9 would be to band map the standard FT8 frequencies in 'Preferences', such as FT8 would stick in the 'mode', sort of like that band stop mapping for CW and SSB in Preference > SETUP Parameters > i.e. "CW Freq Cutoff"? OR if FT8 is in the 'REMARKS" field then FT8 would also 'STICK" ? Either way would save on allot of 'hand holding' a FT8 QSO in the logging process.
I am just starting to use FT8, and would like to here from other DX4WIN v9 user the config setups. I have a FTdx5000 and plan on using the "PKT" connection on the radio to a external MFJ 1204MD6 sound card to the computer running both the FT8 and DX4Win V9 software. I am still unclear what a 'submode' is used for in DX4Winv9? 73's Ed w...@ymail.com http://www.qrz.com/db/W1ZZ On Saturday, February 3, 2018, 4:56:02 AM GMT, Wes Printz W3SE / ZL3TE <zl...@xtra.co.nz> wrote: Hi Ed, The behavior I have noticed when clicking on spots, unless FT8 is noted in the "Remarks" field in the DX Cluster window, Example: DX de F4GAJ: 7074.0 K0UA FT8 TU QSO... the mode will revert to SSB, as DX4WIN will read the mode from the radio. You will have to manually change the mode after saving the QSO. 73, Wes, W3SE / ZL3TE > On February 3, 2018 at 5:10 PM W1ZZ via DX4WIN <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > WHen I click on a FT8 spot within DX4Win v9, the mode fill in FT8, but then > it changes to SSB.
