Guys - sorry for the delay in responding to your posts - places to go, things to do, all overriding ham radio for a couple hours.
It was suggested that I see if I’m out of sync on my computer clock(s). Well, here is the strange thing: the iMac that the K3 is connected to consistently is giving me a DT response of 0.1 to 0.2 on 90% of the decoded stations, so I’m thinking that the default time server the iMac / OSX is connected to is pretty accurate. But it is this rig that starts it’s transmission a bit late. The RPi 3 that the KX3 is connected to consistently is giving me DT figures around -0.8 to -0.9. which makes me think my time sync is a little off. But the KX3 connected to this RPi starts right up when it is supposed to. Interestingly, that RPi 3 is connected via short Ethernet to another RPi 3 that runs it’s own GPS-sync’d NTP server. Go figure. I’m stumped. > On Feb 22, 2018, at 5:28 PM, Nr4c <n...@widomaker.com> wrote: > > Check the clocks on the computers.
