Re: [Dx4win] Unique calls

2020-06-13 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Cesar was asking about unique calls, what you've suggested would give you
all JA calls. Also, to do what you've suggested you need to us F8 in the QSO
window (search) and you'd want to put JA in the Prefix field, not the
callsign field. Even with a wildcard (JA*) in the callsign field you'd only
get calls matching exactly JA*, you would get things like JR, JH, etc.
However, with that said, you could use that to filter down then export from
logbook. Personally I'd just use F8, enter JA in the Prefix field and 80m in
the Band field. You'll have the results in the Logbook, which you can export
using "write to file". You'd then import the resulting CSV file and use one
of the spreadsheet programs to find the uniques. (There are other tools to
do that, but it seems like most folks have access to at least some form of
spreadsheet program.

Yes, very easy.

This is one of the things I love about DX4Win.

Open the country  window.
Open the logbook window.
In the QSO window, type JA in the callsign field.  Do NOT press Enter or Tab
or anything Double click "80" in the country window and your logbook will
contain only 80m JA QSO's.
Scroll down the logbook window and you will see how many JA's on 80 you have
worked.

Re: [Dx4win] Ideas for development

2019-11-27 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I'm trying to understand the issue. Let's say I work you at some point on 20M 
CW, then I work you again in a contest again on 20M CW. I import the ADIF file, 
are you saying that you should get a warning that I've worked you before? I 
don't understand why that would be a problem. Like many of us, this happens all 
the time.

If you're talking about preventing a truly duplicate QSO from being imported 
(same band, mode, and time), that's what the "Imported QSO is ignored" setting 
is for on the Options for duplicate QSOs dialog when importing. 

I use this all the time because for FT-8, I just feed it my whole log every 
time I import and it ignores the duplicate.

Re: [Dx4win] Ideas for development

2019-11-25 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I disagree with respect to Clublog. It's been around long enough and is
increasing in popularity. It has a real API interface to do
uploads/downloads, and from what I've seen it seems likely that Michael,
G7VJR, is very aware that changing the API without warning would break a lot
of things and will make sure that doesn't happen. The same argument could be
made for the existing support for LoTW and eQSL, and admittedly without any
hard data, I'd bet that Clublog is used at least as much as eQSL, if not
more.

There's already an option for this and it is done by enabling the Contest
Mode. The problem is that this mode gets reset every time DX4Win is
restarted. I keep asking for an option to remember being enabled on restart
or by running a command key, but...
> 3/ Allow automatic upload to Clublog, which MANY of us are using.

Not realistic, since not only do sites like this come and go, but any change
in the site's upload procedure would require a change in the DX4Win
programming, and with the plethora of log upload sites (LOTW, eQSL, QRZ,
CLubLog, etc) this would be a logistical nightmare.

The above are personal opinions, not an official DX4Win positions, of
course.

Re: [Dx4win] Modes FT4 And JS8

2019-08-17 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I don’t believe that D4W will automatically change the older ones to properly 
reflect FT4, I think you need to re-import. It’s easy enough to check, press F8 
to do a search for mode MFSK and sub-mode FT4 (you probably don’t need the 
submode) and see if anything comes up. If not, just re-import and then do a 
LoTW export and upload.

Re: [Dx4win] D4W v9 memory size?

2019-08-14 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Years and years ago, before Windows, if you had an executable that was 25KB 
that's what it took to run, plus whatever extra memory it requested from the 
operating system for variables.  

Short version of what follows: Programs with GUI interfaces (in particular) use 
a lot more memory than just the executable itself.

Longer version: 

Under Windows, the size of the program itself is only part of what's required 
and the explanation can get very complicated. I've got a tool (Google 
"sysinternals VMMap" if you're interested) that shows what all the memory is 
used for. Briefly, about 4MB is in fact used for the executable code. However, 
another roughly 50MB is used to load DLLs (dynamic linked libraries) that the 
program needs to operate. There is another MB used for mapped files, which is a 
quick way to store data so it doesn't have to be fetched from disk every time 
it's needed. A simple example is are things like the cities, states, lakes, 
rivers, etc. that are needed for the map, but a whopping 18MB is used to cache 
fonts. (I'd need to check, but that's probably something common to Windows 
programs). There's another 35MB of Shareable memory which can be used for 
things like inter-process communication. I can't tell specifically what it's 
used for, Paul would have to tell you. There's 15MB used for various stacks, 
which is part of how programs run. The biggest remaining chunk at about 210MB 
is for Private Data, which is typically used for variables in the program. 
Again, Paul would have to explain how things are organized in the program.

For those of you keeping score, you'll note that what's shown adds up to way 
over 193MB. In fact, adding in a few things that I left out shows that there is 
actually just under 354MB allocated to the dx4win.exe process. Where does the 
195MB number come from? That's what's known as private memory that's directly 
"charged" to the program that can't be used by the system for anything else. 
All the other memory is (sort of) shareable between other processes if more 
memory is needed. It turns out that of that 195MB the vast majority is used by 
Private Data (189MB) and the rest by portions of all of the rest.

So in summary, there's unlikely to actually be anything wrong here at all. 
While it seems astonishing to those of us who grew up and built PCs and did 
upgrades by buying 256 BYTE chips one at a time when we could afford them, this 
might seem totally insane, but we live in a world where a machine with 4GB of 
RAM is probably considered the bare minimum these days (running Windows; Linux 
can be massively more frugal).

For those of you who already know about this kind of thing, I'm aware that I've 
simplified a lot and left out a lot of details, and I've kind of mangled the 
concept of Private Bytes vs. Working Set, etc.). This was the best simple-ish 
explanation I could come up with and still try to answer Len's question. Flames 
to me off-list please.

Re: [Dx4win] Communication between DX4WIN and IC7600 does not work

2019-06-30 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Hi Mel,

I've got the same radio and am running the same version of Windows.

My setup is similar to yours, though I've slightly modified the ON4AOI_500Hz to 
turn the filter off. I'm also using a baud rate of 19200 instead of 9600, 
although as long as the settings in DX4WIN match the radio it should work fine. 

One other difference is that I've got the poll rate set to 1000ms. I'd try 
dropping to that to see if it makes a difference.

If you want, I can send you the .rig file I'm using (I don't think the list 
allows attachments).

One other thing, had this been working at some point but stopped, or is this 
your first try at getting it going?

If I would like to grab a station from the Band Map the frequency changes

back to the previous frequency and nothing happens on the radio.

However, information from radio to program works nicely. If I turn the VFO

Both N1MM and DXlog works nicely both directions.

Re: [Dx4win] dx4win log to WSJT-X

2019-06-30 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Normally I'd recommend making a backup of the wsjt-x log but if it's been
wiped, there's not going to be anything to back up. 

I'd give what you're suggesting a try. The worst thing that would happen is
if the file format is incompatible, you'd likely get an error when starting
wsjt-x. If that happens, just delete the file.

And I'll put in the obligatory reminder that backing up your computer is
always a good idea. 

(Shameless plug coming)

I've personally used Backblaze for years
(https://www.backblaze.com/cloud-backup.html) and it's saved me more than a
few times. One of the best parts: You just install it and it does it's
thing. You don't need to run anything, it doesn't completely clobber your
system when it runs like some others, and restoring is easy. You can get a
30 day free trial. If you decide to sign up, you can use this link
https://secure.backblaze.com/r/00lxyo (I think you can use that for the
trial as well) and we both get an extra month free.

If you've got more questions about backups, please contact me off-list.

Subject: [Dx4win] dx4win log to WSJT-X

I made a boo boo and deleted my wsjt-x log which contained roughly 2,000
qso.
I am trying to rebuild it and am wondering if I can merely do a search for
FT8 in dx4win; create an ADIF log then copy and paste it to the wsjt-x log?
Will that work? and if not are there any suggestions ?
Many thanks

Re: [Dx4win] 9.0.5 Not ignoring dupes during WSJT-x import

2019-06-27 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
By any chance, were those FT4 QSOs? (That'll only make sense if you're using
the most recent release candidate).

I saw something similar with my first import, but it was fine after that.

Importing QSOs from wsjtx_log.adi into DX4WIN log.  Specify to ignore dupes.
In 9.0.4 this worked nicely, only importing new QSOs.
Now with 9.0.5 it created approximately 140 duplicate QSOs out of 1000+ QSOs
in the wsjtx log.
These added Qs differ by a minute.

The import preferences are the same for both versions of DX4WIN 60 & 1800.

Any ideas?

Re: [Dx4win] FT4

2019-06-08 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
If you're using the latest version (2.1.0-rc7) it will import as MFSK and will 
put this comment in the Notes for this QSO field:

Import:{Submode=FT4}

For whatever reason, the ADIF guys decided that although FT8 is it's own mode, 
FT4 is a submode of MFSK. Unfortunately D4W doesn't recognize FT4 so it accepts 
the import as MFSK without a submode.

Once Paul does an update to support FT4, I guess I'll need to go back and fix 
those QSOs.

If you've logged QSOs using rc5, they'll come in with a QSO note saying that 
it's Mode=FT4. I changed those to DATA (I can't remember what mode they 
originally imported as).

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN on Rastberry Pi 3

2019-03-15 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I don't know if that's possible. Apparently there is a version of Windows 10
for the RPI, but it's not exactly full Windows, it's a version specifically
for IOT. Here's a link to an article that I found:
https://www.tomshardware.com/news/windows-10-raspberry-pi-hands-on,38629.htm
l

More importantly, unless Paul decides to compile DX4WIN so that it will on
the ARM processor, it wouldn't run even if Windows does. (The Windows for
IOT build was built by Microsoft specifically for the RPI and is compiled
for the ARM processor). I would think that this also applies to trying to
use an emulator like WINE, though it's an interesting concept.

I am trying to run wjst-x on my Kenwood TS990S and of course log my contacts
in DX4WIN

The 990 uses a USB connection which is seen as a virtual comport (COM3). 
I run into conflicts when I try to run DX4WIN and WJST-X because I think
they are sharing or not sharing as the case may be the same COM port

I want to work a FT8 contact and then log it in DX4WIN. To do this at the
moment I make a QSO on WJST-X/FT8 , then close WJST-X and open DX4WIN  ( or
let DX4WIN /Radio interface time out and then log the contact manually  A
bit cumbersome in the digital age.
So what do you guys do?
1) Manually transfer the info to DX4WIN after the radio connection times
out, have to remember to enter all the band data, etc

2) The 990 has in addition to the USB virtual COM connection, a real COM
port I suspect but have not tried it that I could run both the USB/COM and
the REAl/COM dedicate one port to DX4WIN and dedicate the other connection
to WJST-X

3) WJST-X has a loging mode, so just log everything to WJST-X and then
import that log into DX4WIN later ?

4) Or  Some possible permutation and combination I haven't considered
yet

I just tried "Check for Updates" here and it worked.  I suspect your
anti-virus/firewall isn't allowing DX4WIN to access the Internet for the
purpose of updating.  I believe the "control file" is on the server, not
part of the DX4WIN installation.

Also make sure the installation directory is not under Program Files (x86).

Re: [Dx4win] Problem connecting a IC7600

2018-08-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Hi Mel,

I guess I have a couple of thoughts: Did you install the Icom USB driver?
You're supposed to do that before ever plugging in the radio, although I'm
not sure how important that is. I am guessing that you did since you said it
works with N1MM. I have my baud rate set to 19200 and the CI-V address set
to 7A. Here are the other settings since maybe this will help:

CI-V Transceive: Off
CI-V Output (for ANT): Off
USB Serial Function: CI-V

In DX4WIN, I have the poll rate set to 1000ms and Max tries set to 6.

I've attached a copy of the RIG file that I use. It's basically the same as
the standard 7600_500 except that I think I changed the filter to default to
off.

All baud rates are set the same 9600 in DX4WIN, the com port, the rig and

I have tried to use both ICOM 7600_250Hz and the ICOM 7600_500Hz

The program and rig do not match, when clicking on a spot or a spot from the

Re: [Dx4win] JTAlert and DX4WIN

2018-06-02 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Paul will have to answer #1.

For #2, what I do is to periodically do an import from wsjtx_log.adi into
D4W. I don't ever clear that log and have the import set to ignore duplicate
QSOs. I use D4W for my "log of record" so I don't care about exporting
confirmed QSOs to WSJT-X. It's not automated but I doubt the import process
takes more than 30 seconds. 

My current workflow looks like this (with thanks to Jim, AD1C for his
suggestion about using Clublog):

1) Work some stations in WSJT-X
2) Shut down WSJT-X, start DX4WIN (I don't run them at the same time because
I'd have to deal with com port conflicts
3) Import the wsjt_log.adi file into D4W.
4) Run a LOTW export
5) Import that file into Clublog
6) Sync with LOTW

It probably took me almost as long to type it as to actually do it. 

There have been some tricks posted as to how to quickly get to the
wsjt_log.adi file when importing it, you can find them in the list archives.
Personally, I've marked that file as a favorite, so whenever I open a file
dialog box I just click on "Quick Access" and the file is right there.

If you press enter after typing "version" in the log window, you will log
that as a contact and will later have to go back and delete it.

If you go to preferences/qso and check Callsign update,  the desired results
will show up in the country box and in the qsl mgr box without pressing the
enter key.  This way you won't have to go in and delete the contact you just
logged.  

Another plus of checking this box is that as soon as the first few of
letters of the call of someone you want to work is entered, the country will
pop up.  You won't have to type in the whole call to see what country it is
from.  Handy if you just want to know the origin of a call.

Hope this helps.

Re: [Dx4win] Interface JT-Alert with DX4WIN?

2018-04-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
There doesn't appear to be a simple way to do this, as far as I can tell. I 
think that Paul would need to make some kind of an interface available.

There might be some way to have JT-AlertX do a period ingest of an ADI file to 
get the countries, but I just decided that I'd treat everything as a new one on 
FT8 so I haven't bothered to try (though fortunately my needed list of ATNO is 
small enough to enter manually).

You can also navigate to the WSJT-X adi file, create a shortcut and then move

Subject: Re: [Dx4win] Importing WXJT-X ADI file into DX4WIN V9?

From his email:
I got tired of navigating to the WSJT-X directory every time I wanted to import 
my WSJT-X log into DX4WIN.  Fortunately, Windows 10 has a solution.  The idea 
is to create a symbolic link in your SAVE directory that points to the WSJT-X 
log directory.  The full instructions for creating symbolic links are here:

https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-
symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/

Here's the quick start:

1.  Start by opening a Command Prompt in Administrator mode.  From the Start 
menu, find "Windows System" and right-click on "Command Prompt'.
Follow the "More" link and then click "Run as Administrator".

2.  Determine the location of your WSJT-X log directory.  Here is one way:

cd %localappdata%
C:
dir

You should see a WSJT-X directory there.  The full path should look 
something like this:

C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

3.  Now determine the location of your DX4WIN SAVE directory.  Mine is here:

E:\dx4w903\save

4.  "cd" into your DX4WIN save directory:

cd E:\dx4w903\save
E:

5.  Finally, create the link.  Here is the command I used:

E:\dx4w903\save> mklink /D WSJT-X C:\Users\jjrei\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

(do not type the part *before* the >, only the part beginning with "mklink"

That's all there is to it.  The next time you want to import using "File | 
Import", you will see the WSJT-X link in your SAVE directory.
Double-click on that link, and you'll find your WSJT-X ADIF file there.

This is not limited to WSJT-X, you can create links to anything you want.

Re: [Dx4win] Check For Updates Won't Run

2018-04-01 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
If you're connected to the Internet, there is always some risk. Since Windows 
XP isn't being patched anymore, there are vulnerabilities that can be exploited 
regardless of what anti-virus/anti-malware/firewall you run. Your machine 
could, for instance, become part of a botnet (See: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botnet).

Turning off your computer when not using it doesn’t make much of a difference, 
you can get infected in a fraction of a second.

I will say that you are doing the right thing by running anti-virus, etc., but 
you are going to be more vulnerable to infections.

At some point pretty much all Internet traffic will be encrypted. Encryption 
along doesn't prevent viruses, but it does reduce the risk.

Re: [Dx4win] Check For Updates Won't Run

2018-04-01 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Realistically, for this use case, the risk is pretty minimal. You're 
fetching data files for a programs that contain no information that could be 
considered sensitive. In theory, it makes it easier for someone to spoof the 
source website, so someone potentially could cause your session to be 
redirected to a different website and you'd download a set of files that 
aren't official, but that's about it. Unless there's some specific flaw in 
the program that could somehow be leveraged to do something  other than what 
it's supposed to do (highly unlikely), the really isn't a risk. (Bear in 
mind that if you want to be 100% secure, you need to disconnect your 
computer from the Internet, then from the power source, then throw it into 
one of those industrial shredders.)

A bigger risk would be if the main website didn't use HTTPS (it does).

Re: [Dx4win] Check For Updates Won't Run

2018-03-31 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
A little digging shows that this is hosted by qth.com. It might be possible
to have a single website (dx4win.com) not redirected to https, but A) That's
a terrible idea, and B) Sooner or later this is going to become a problem
for almost every website, as https is becoming standard for everyone.

The only short-term workaround that I can think of would be to host the
actual files on a different website without https and work up a manual
process to download and install. (No Jim, I am not suggesting
son-of-dxupdate-for-XP-only).

That's it. Either the March 12th website certificate update caused this, or
whomever is running the dx4win.com website enabled automatic redirection
from http to https.
To support Windows XP, that redirect will need to be turned off.
Unfortunately, this has a security impact for everyone not running Windows
XP.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN 9.0.4 Can not update.

2018-03-24 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Sergey (and anyone else this has happened to),

If you post to the list and your message is blank when delivered, it's 
because you sent it using HTML (or "Rich" ) format. This is the default 
for some email programs, and unfortunately it appears that this list is 
probably filtering that out, so the message appears blank. The message 
will likely be delivered to any off-list recipients correctly (I see 
that Jim, AD1C was copied directly) but anyone reading this on the list 
will only see the message footer.


@Paul: I know that "in the old days" people were pretty reluctant to 
allow HTML and/or MIME attachments, but those seem to be a lot more 
common. Any chance of getting the list modified to allow those? (I speak 
as someone who, with Thunderbird as my mail client, gets bitten by this 
all the time.)

Re: [Dx4win] Logging FT8 qsos in V9

2018-02-24 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Short version: Take the ADI file that WSJT-X creates, import into D4W 
making sure that it's set to "Imported QSO is ignored". Everything is 
imported correctly into D4W complete with correct rstS & rstR report 
(e.g., -15, whatever). No need to clear the file afterwards. Very simple.


I don't normally run D4W when doing FT-8 but no harm in that.

I can send you a screenshot separately, it won't post to the list.

runs normally without CAT radio control.
Not sure if this ok or not, but seems no harm no foul.

My PC is running XP,  DX4Win v9, and WSJT.

A few questions:

1), I just did an 'off line' QSO addition to the log file in DX4Win.  Is
that how it is done, manually every time?  Since you can't 'grab' the WSJT
QSO information with a click to import into DX4Win.

2). I just logged this qso as FT8, with 599s each way.
Did not log the db received information that WSJT provided, I assume that
599 is not the way to report the FT8 levels.

3.)  Do you just log all FT8 QSOs in WSJT, and then Export / Import the
WSJT adi file into DX4Win? (just like you would do for N1MM+ etc)
a.)  If yes what does the RST send and received look like in DX4Win for
this import? Is there a SCREEN shot I could reference somewhere to visually
look at?

b.)  Is yes, after the import into DX4Win, do you go back into WSJT and
clear the .adi log, so that next export / import you don't get a duplicate
message in DX4Win?

4.) I have been reading about JTalert, this program seems to have the
ability to provide a logging 'channel' between WSJT and some other logging
programs. Does or will DX4Win have this capability?  Is so is there
documentation available for setup?

5.) Lastly I did see Jim's W10 script for moving qso automatically from
WSJT into DXWin, would that work on XP platform?

Thanks in advance for responses, please do a REPLY ALL, so everyone can
read your responses to my Qs above.

Re: [Dx4win] Invalid QSOs

2018-02-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
Unfortunately, setting that to 0 does not help. According to the Clublog 
article 
(http://clublog.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/55830-update-skip-or-delete-qsos), 
here's the only thing that will mark as invalid:


 * Set the DXCC country to "Not valid for DXCC" or equivalent, putting
   a DXCC country value of zero in the ADIF file;
 * Set the QSL value to 'I' for 'invalid';

D4W doesn't normally create an ADIF value for either DXCC country or set 
the QSL valid to I regardless if the DXCC award value is set to I or if 
either of the RST values is set to zero.


I'm not sure if this will work, but I'm thinking of exporting just the 
QSOs that I've marked as invalid, adding in one of these fields, and 
uploading. If I don't subsequently re-upload with a changed value, I 
think that might do the trick.



On 2/6/2018 5:25 PM, Jim Reisert AD1C wrote:

Is there any way to mark QSOs as invalid so they won't be flagged

I think setting RST to "0" works.

How are you accessing the log file? No need to export/import, just open

It's not "automatic" in the sense that you still need to go to

they will download and install automatically.

Some applications will automatically check periodically without manual
intervention, but D4W doesn't do that.

DX4WIN does support 19200. It may be that the default for that radio is

Re: [Dx4win] New V.9.0.4 malfunction on XP

2018-01-11 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I'm not using Windows XP but I'm curious: Do you see the same thing if 
you use the keypad - or + keys to adjust the speed? (To be honest, I 
didn't even know about Alt-F9 & Alt-F10, I've always just used the - and +).


One comment I'll throw out to anyone still running Windows XP: As I'm 
sure you know, Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. If you 
are continuing to use it, please make sure you are not connected to the 
Internet. Microsoft stopped providing support to the general public 
(even for security and critical issues) in 2014 (see 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_XP#End_of_support for details) 
which means that you will be at risk. The risk is not only to your 
machines but your machine could become part of a botnet, meaning that it 
can be used to attack other systems, etc.

Re: [Dx4win] Export DX4WIN Log To WSJT-X

2018-01-03 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

The WSJT-X manual says this:

The log file|wsjtx_log.adi|is updated whenever you log a QSO 
from/WSJT-X/. (Keep in mind that if you erase this file you will lose 
all “worked before” information.) You can append or overwrite 
the|wsjtx_log.adi|file by exporting your QSO history as an ADIF file 
from another logging program. Turning*Show DXCC entity and worked before 
status*off and then on again will cause/WSJT-X/to re-read the log file. 
Very large log files may cause/WSJT-X/to slow down when searching for calls.


So, you could just export your log as ADIF from DX4WIN using 
File->Import/Export then overwrite or combine it with what's in 
wsjt_log.adi.


A better alternative (recommended in the WSJT-X documentation) would be 
to use JT-AlertX (available at http://hamapps.com/). That has a lot more 
alerting features, and I think there's a way that you can have it do a 
one-time scan of any log file to "catch up". You can find more 
information about that at the website I mentioned.


I use JTAlertX myself, but I intentionally didn't "pre-load" as I want 
it to tell me about any country that I haven't worked on FT8, which of 
course would pick up an ATNO or anything else I needed, which is why I'm 
not 100% sure how to "pre-load" what you've worked already.

Re: [Dx4win] IC-7610 INI File

2017-12-08 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

I'll be happy to write one if you'll ship me your radio. ;-)

Try the 7600 as a starting point, see if that works, although I recall 
reading on the 7610 reflector that it may need a different default port 
number. If you're not comfortable doing that yourself, I can do it and 
send you the RIG file. If that does work, it won't be able to use all 
the features, but it'll be a starting point.

ini file yet.   I presume one will be available soon?

Re: [Dx4win] DX4Win Stopped Working

2017-11-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I just tested this and had no issues. Silly question: Was VE7CC actually 
running at the time you ran into the issue?


Also, I was under the impression that the Packet Window doesn't actually 
close (I could definitely be wrong about that.)

Re: [Dx4win] FT8 Mode Search

2017-10-29 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
First, what option did you use on the Import as the option for 
duplicates? If you used "Imported QSO is ignored" and you already had 
those QSOs in your log, you'd need to pay attention to the display that 
comes up that says how many were actually imported and how many were 
ignored. For example, I just read in the WSJT-X ADIF file which has 866 
QSOs in it and it said:


Import Finished

866 QSOs were read
[A bunch of other stuff]
866 Duplicate QSOs were processed

In that case, it didn't import anything because they were already there.

If you hadn't previously imported or otherwise entered them, I'd suggest 
that you look at one QSO that you know is in there and see what the mode 
is set to, we can then figure it out from there.



On 10/29/2017 7:44 PM, Bud Governale, W3LL wrote:

I imported my WSJT-X .adi file into V9.

Next I did a F8 search with FT8 entered in the Mode box.

The result was “No matching QSO’s Found”.

I looked at the WSJT-X log. It consisted of 434 FT8 QSO’s.

Why none found in the search?

What am I doing wrong?

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Question

2017-10-20 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi RIck,

This sounds like an issue with either the radio, cable, or driver. I 
can't think of any reason why D4W itself would stop communicating with 
the radio other than if perhaps you changed the address on either the 
radio or within the software to not match what the other is expecting. 
It appears that the default for the 7851 is 8E, you could check 
File->Preferences->Radio and make sure the address is set to 8E there, 
then note the baud rate there and go into the menu (on my 7600 it's in 
the menu "Others" and would be next to CI-V Baud Rate and Address. Make 
sure those match.


Other than checking the cables, the only other thing I can think of is 
to test with some other software that controls your radio, if you've got 
something.


(Sorry about the blank message to the list, my email client sometimes 
decides to send rich text which gets stripped by the list. I think I 
fixed it.)

Hi Rick,

Which version of D4W are you using? Can you still control the radio 
from D4W? You didn't say what kind of radio you're using or how it's 
connected, so it's a bit hard to troubleshoot. Can you provide some 
additional information? And while it sounds like everyone always says 
this ... did you try rebooting?

Re: [Dx4win] Problem Getting DX4Win to work on a new computer

2017-05-31 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Carol,

I'd argue that yes, you should upgrade, but there is a simple solution:

I found this in the archive from Paul from January 2005:

Paul,

The example given was for winNT/XP. For Windows/98 there is a different
driver and destination directory. From the on-line help:

for Win/95/98:
Windows\System\Vichw11.vxd

for Win/NT/2000/XP:
WinNT\System32\Divers\Vichw11.sys

I made some modifications in 6.04 to see if we can eliminate the problem.

The searchable mail archives are at 
http://www.mail-archive.com/dx4win@mailman.qth.net/ and are a great 
resource.

Re: [Dx4win] Can not get DX spots to talk to radio

2017-04-13 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I don't know if this will help at all, but I put a copy of the Rig file 
I'm using up my website at https://k2dbk.com/ICOM%207600_K2DBK.rig. You 
can also just go to https://k2dbk.com and scroll down to where it says 
"K2DBK's 7600 rig file for DX4Win". I will be honest, I modified it from 
ON4AOI's original and I can't remember specially what change I made or 
why, but I know that it works for me in the current state. Maybe give it 
a shot and see if it helps?


I would also suggest that you install the USB driver since that's what 
Icom recommends and I don't know what happens if you don't. Be sure to 
take a system restore point before you do in case of any issues. Here's 
a link to how to do that for Windows 7: 
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17127/windows-back-up-restore


Finally, I will mention that I'm running Windows 10, but I'm not sure if 
that is a factor here.

Subject: Re: [Dx4win] Can not get DX spots to talk to radio

Hi Steve,

Can you provide more details about the new configuration? It sounds like
D4W is seeing the frequency information so however you've got it hooked
up at least it's able to read that.. Are you using the USB adapter for
CI-V control? Assuming so since you said you turned translate (I think
you meant transceive) off. Did you install the USB drivers before you
connected? The documentation warns about doing that, but I don't know
specifically what happens if you connect without the drivers being in
place first.

I guess the other things to check would be to make sure that when you
transferred over to the new computer that the setup in Preferences for
the radio match what you've got configured, in particular the port and
baud rate settings. (Although if you're getting frequency information,
it would seem less likely that's an issue.)

Re: [Dx4win] Can not get DX spots to talk to radio

2017-04-12 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Steve,

Can you provide more details about the new configuration? It sounds like 
D4W is seeing the frequency information so however you've got it hooked 
up at least it's able to read that.. Are you using the USB adapter for 
CI-V control? Assuming so since you said you turned translate (I think 
you meant transceive) off. Did you install the USB drivers before you 
connected? The documentation warns about doing that, but I don't know 
specifically what happens if you connect without the drivers being in 
place first.


I guess the other things to check would be to make sure that when you 
transferred over to the new computer that the setup in Preferences for 
the radio match what you've got configured, in particular the port and 
baud rate settings. (Although if you're getting frequency information, 
it would seem less likely that's an issue.)

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN

2017-04-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Cort,

My answer to you was incorrect. I did a few tests starting DX4WIN 
normally (not with autohotkey) and this is what I found:


As you said, when you first start, it defaults to showing the last QSO 
logged. Note that at this point, it's not in "add real-time" mode and 
status underneath where it says "File Radio  Help" is blank. Also, the 
text in the Callsign field is highlighted. At this point, a couple of 
things can happen:


-If you hit F9 (just one keystroke), the status changes to "Add 
real-time" and the callsign QSO window is re-initialized, ready to enter 
a new contact. Entering a contact here causes no issues.


-If you simply type over the callsign in the QSO window,  as you 
said it does overwrite the last logged QSO, although you do have to 
click "Yes" to the "Do you want to save the changes" dialog box that 
pops up, so it's not doing it without warning. This is essentially the 
same as using F8 to find a QSO, highlighting the callsign, then hitting 
enter.


So it appears that there is in fact no way that I can find to have it 
start in Add real-time mode. The best I can offer is the Autohotkey 
solution I mentioned.


Incidentally, I've tweaked my AHK script a bit. If anyone is interested, 
contact me individually so we don't clog up the list.

Re: [Dx4win] question

2017-04-05 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Ian,

I can't speak for the author regarding why it works that way, and I 
agree that I'd prefer to have it come up with a empty QSO log field as 
well as automatically connecting to the packet.


I'm happy to share my Autohotkey script, but please understand that I'm 
not an AHK expert. I'll do my best to help as best I can, but I can't 
promise anything. Also, this is nothing like one of AD1C's nicely 
polished programs, but hopefully it'll work as a starting point for some 
of you. Autohotkey has some far more sophisticated functionality, but 
the script here is pretty close to just brute force.


First, you'll need a copy of Autohotkey which you can download from 
https://autohotkey.com/


There are tutorials there and that's where you can go for help. You'll 
want to put this script into the AHK startup file (instructions to edit 
that file are included in the help). I've got it set to invoke the AHK 
sequence when I type Windows+Z. (Why that? It wasn't used for anything 
else on my machine.)


Script starts below:

#z::
IfWinNotExist Packet Window
{
Run C:\ham Program Files\dx4w805\dx4win.exe
Sleep 4500
}

IfWinExist Packet Window
{
WinActivate
Send {Enter}{Enter}{Enter}{F7}{F9}{F9}
}

IfWinExist K2DBK sorted by Date
{
WinActivate
Send {F9}
}

; end of script

Here's what it does: First, if it finds that there's no window named 
"Packet Window" (the name of the Packet Window in D4W), it runs the D4W 
executable. You'll probably need to change the location of the 
executable. The Sleep 4500 tells it to wait a bit so that all the 
windows can finish opening. This is the number of milliseconds, so 
that's 4 1/2 seconds. You may need to tune that as well.


Next, if it finds that the Packet Window is open, it makes it active, 
sends 3 Enters, which causes the packet site selection window to open 
and selects the first cluster site in that window. (For recent versions, 
that will be the last one you used.) I have F7 in the packet window set 
to send my callsign. You can change this, or you could just have it send 
your callsign right from the script if you want. The next couple of F9's 
should cause it to go to the QSO entry window and blank the entry field, 
but I think I need to adjust the timing since it doesn't quite work right.


The next block of code is finds the main QSO entry window (that's the 
title it has for me, you'll need to change that), makes it the active 
window, and sends an F9 to clear it.


Again, this is purely a "good enough for me" kind of thing. I can try to 
provide some suggestions to folks, but depending on how you have D4W 
configured you may have to make some minor changes or possibly it won't 
work at all for you.



On 4/5/2017 5:29 PM, Ian Trusson wrote:

David

But why, when DX4WIN starts, doesn't it come up automatically with the QSO
entry blank? Every time I start DX4WIN I have to hit F9 so the frequency of
my radio is received into the QSO window from the radio via the CAT
connection and the frequency is sent to my Expert 1K-FA amplifier to set the
ATU for the correct frequency sub band. When I first switch on before
hitting F9 I hear nothing from my receiver because the ATU is not tuned!

However DX4WIN has always had this problem so I guess it will not get
changed any time soon so any further detailed info you could provide about
using AutoHotKey to overcome the F9 problem and automatically connect the
packet window could be very useful to many of us.

If the program opened in the Add Real Time mode, then it would expect 
data from the transceiver, i.e. frequency, mode and such. However, if 
the radio wasn't on at the time of starting DX4Win, it would go into a 
radio time-out of whatever time in seconds is set up for, then 
promptly default into Stop Radio mode. That would be a pain in the ass 
for those who frequently start DX4Win with the xceiver off. Once the 
program is up and running, it is easy enough to just press F9 and get 
it ready to log. After a while, it becomes a second nature.

Re: [Dx4win] LOTW report question

2016-11-21 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
This is probably more something for the LoTW group, but unless something 
has changed you can't download a QSO that isn't a QSL. In other words, 
it has to match for you to get it. That's one of the security features 
in LoTW.


Is it possible that you had a different log file open on that day, or 
possibly lost the QSOs for some other reason?



On 11/21/2016 8:39 PM, Barry wrote:

I just did a LOTW upload and download.  After uploading the interim QSLs
rcvd file into DX4WIN, it told me that 12 QSLs were found with no QSOs.
So I looked that the lotw.notfound report amd cjecked a few of the QSOs
marked with an X.  For some of them, I wasn't even on the air that day.
Does that mean that the station uploaded a QSO to LOTW and busted the
call, copying it as me?

The version of the downloader is unrelated to the version of DX4WIN, it

I just tried download and it worked fine, so I don't think that's it.

If you've got any anti-virus software you might want to see if you can

Re: [Dx4win] IO Error 103

2016-03-31 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Emily,

I did a little quick research and the most common problem seems to be 
that something else has the file open. One thing that's commonly 
mentioned is anti-virus software, but there could be something else as well.


If you've got anti-virus you might want to temporarily disable that in 
case it's keeping the file locked.


Just a wild guess, but one other possibility is that if you're still 
running your mail program it might have never completely closed the 
file. Try closing that and see if it helps.


The other thing is that this is another case where sometimes a system 
reboot might help. If some other process on your system has the file 
open, that might prevent you from opening it. A reboot should clear that up.


If that doesn't work, you could try to make a copy of the original file 
and see if you can import that. If you can't even copy it, you may 
possibly have an issue with the drive, though I wouldn't think that likely.


Let us know what happens, there might be a few other things but what 
I've mentioned should be pretty simple to start with.

He's operated from there before (I've got a contact from 2013 with him), 
but it still hasn't been recognized by the ARRL as a DXCC entity.


Work first, worry later.

Re: [Dx4win] Icom 7600 & DX4WIN

2016-03-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Hi Jim (and all),

I got a number of suggestions both here and privately, thanks to everyone.

To summarize: For #2, I did adjust the rig file myself, and I'll be 
happy to pass it on to anyone who is interested.


And as Jim suggests, so far everything I've seen seems to indicate that 
I still need an extra COM port for keying (which I have). I'd been using 
a "first generation" (I think) Rigblaster Plus with the audio being fed 
from the sound card as well as handling CW and PTT (for AFSK, PSK31, 
etc.) It looks like this cable 
http://www.westmountainradio.com/product_info.php?products_id=icom_aufsk_cbl 
might do the trick, using TxD to for FSK RTTY, and I should still be 
able to use everything else. Right now, for keying, I've got a 
connection between the keying output of the Rigblaster and the Key input 
on the back of the radio. What I need to figure out is how that cable 
will facilitate CW keying, since I can't figure out how they'd key CW 
just using the ACC plug.


In any case, at this point, it looks this is more of a general Icom 7600 
issue than a DX4WIN thing, so I'll move this this to the appropriate group.


Thanks again to all.

David, regarding #1 and #3.  My understanding is that the COM port
used for radio (frequency) control must be used ONLY for radio
control.  You will need a second COM port to do CW keying, PTT and
FSK.  That port can be used for all three.

Surely someone must make a one COM Port device that does the latter.

If it's doing it with the radio off, make sure that you have the input 
to MMTTY set to line in, and that you aren't using a webcame or other 
microphone which might be picking up other noises in your shack.  That's 
under Options->Setup->Sound Card on the RTTY Control panel window.


To change the function keys, right-click on them in the terminal window 
and select Edit Function Keys.

Re: [Dx4win] Missing QSOs

Any chance you might have written to a log that's not in your "save"

I have a strange problem.

  


I transferred my RAC Winter contest QSO's (made on December 19) from N1MM
Logger this morning and that went fine.  But when I looked at the logbook in
DX4WIN 8.05, I noticed that all the QSOs I had logged between December 12
and December 18 were missing.  These included contacts from the 10M contest
last weekend and a bunch of **90IARU stations.  I can recreate these from
other sources, but I'm pretty active and I'm probably missing several dozen
other QSOs.

  


I tried arranging all the logs in the "save" folder in chronological order
to see if I might have entered the missing QSOs in another log file, but
there is nothing with a time stamp during the period from 12/12 through
today other than the main file, its backup, and the RAC contest file.

  


I also looked in  N1MM logger to see if I might have mistakenly entered the
QSOs there, but I didn't.

  


I've tried a global search for some callsigns I remember working during that
period with no luck.

  


I worked a PA3 earlier this morning and his QSO is also missing.

  


My last external backup was in November, so it's of no help here.

  


I'm running version 8.05 on a Samsung laptop with Windows 7.

  


Any ideas would be welcome.

Is there any way to make all of this happen with a single function key?  The 
bit that is stumping me is that there is no apparent keyboard shortcut for 
Internet Connection.

I use DX4win while mobile, and occasionally have to reset the connection due to 
cellular coverage.  All those steps (*especially* the right-click!) force me to 
pull over to reset.  If I could just reach over and punch a button that would 
be oh so much better.

Re: [Dx4win] Packet Cluster Connection via Function Key problem

2015-09-18 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I recommend using AutoHotKey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) which you can 
use to do the automatic connection and more.


I have an AHK macro key that fires up my ham "workstation", which opens 
Dx4Win and starts the cluster connection, and opens up a couple of other 
useful programs at the same time. For something simple like that, you 
invest maybe 30 minutes to learn enough about AHK to do what you need to 
do, set it up, and forget about it.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

It can't be done.

Once your "preferred" node is at the top of the list, when starting
DX4WIN, in the Packet Window, type the Enter key three times.  This
should get you through all the windows and connect.

I use Autohotkey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) to automate starting

additional programs that I have running when I'm operating. Although you

What I don't like about the DX4WIN connection process, it takes up to 6 - 8

it is not a DX4WIN issue or maybe not an AR Cluster issue. Was hoping

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Disconnects?

2015-06-06 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

There's an even easier way:

1) Start program
2) Left-click in the packet window
3) Hit Enter 3 times (First time brings up the No connection popup, 
second time closes that popup, 3rd time picks the top node in the list)

4) Type in call sign

(FYI it looks liek you only replied to me, so I'm cc'ing the whole list; 
I wasn't the one having the issue.)

4. Type in call sign and am connected

While I agree that I'd like to have an easier way to connect (and
would
like to have it connect automatically, if so desired), what I do
now is
I use Autohotkey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) to automate starting
DX4WIN. It starts it, connects the packet cluster, and even runs some
additional programs that I have running when I'm operating.
Although you
can do some very sophisticated things with AHK, starting a program
and
other basic things are quite simple.

 The DX4WIN connection drops at random times, anywhere from 3 -
12 hours, while I seldom lose the direct AR connect. It can run
for days without dropping.

 What I don't like about the DX4WIN connection process, it takes
up to 6 - 8 mouse and keyboard strokes to complete it. Maybe Paul
can improve the process to 2 - 3 strokes in the future?

Re: [Dx4win] Error saving log in Windows 8

2015-03-30 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
This is a bit of a guess, but go into File-Preferences and then select 
the QSO tab. There's a field labelled Secondary backup directory. Make 
sure that if there's anything in there, that it's a writable directory, 
typically something right off c:\ or maybe under My Documents.


The 2 minute timing sounds right, that's the default for that file to be 
written.

Re: [Dx4win] LOTW

2015-02-23 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
The easiest way is just to use the LoTW-Export to LoTW each time, then 
allow it to turn off flag indicating that it needs to be uploaded. That 
way each time you upload it will automatically only upload those which 
are flagged for uploading. This does mean that you need to have your 
Preferences set so that any QSOs either entered directly or imported are 
flagged to be uploaded to LoTW. It also means that what you'd want to do 
is to generate the ADIFs only from DX4Win, and not use the export from 
Writelog. I used to do it that way (export from N1MM logger, send that 
up to LoTW, then import but don't set the flags), and it got complicated.


So in other words, the flow is: Generate the ADIF file from Writelog, 
import to DX4W (making sure that the LoTW flag defaults to Y on new  
imported QSOs), then export from DX4W. Yes, you do need to export twice, 
but I've found that it only takes a few seconds and it keeps things all 
managed (for LoTW purposes) aligned in DX4W.


As an alternative, if you set a filter (for instance, filter for K1N), 
when you start the export, DX4Win will ask if you want to use the filter 
that's in effect.


I hope this helps.

Re: [Dx4win] Question re QSLs

2014-12-02 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I don't think you can get a popup alert, but if you have the award 
window up for that award (the one that shows worked/confirmed/submitted) 
you could see that there's an unconfirmed slot.


The window I'm talking about (for country) looks like this (not sure if 
this will work to the reflector):



I seem to have all my slots filled for the US. :-)

Here's a better example:


The current station in the QSO window in this case is a German station 
on digital mode. I need a 30m digital confirmation, so I'd know that I'd 
need a QSL if I were to make a contact with him.

Re: [Dx4win] DX Spotting Window

2014-10-20 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK

Bud,

When you say pressing INS doesn't do anything, does it not stop the 
display or does it not even display (HOLDING) at the top of the DX 
stop window?


While sorting by priority (as others have suggested), I use hold 
myself all the time and know it can be frustrating. Couple of things 
come to mind: First, if you've got more than one Insert key on your 
keyboard, try the other one (if you haven't done so already). Try 
pressing the NumLock key and see if Insert works. Actually, you could 
probably see if it's the Insert key itself by going into anything where 
you can edit text on your computer and see if the Ins key is functioning 
properly at all.


You could try to unplug/replug the keyboard, or, when all else fails, 
try rebooting your computer (if you haven't done those thing yet either.)

Then something is wrong.  If you type the insert the INS key in the DX
spots window, it should add the word (HOLDING) to the end of the
window title.  Does it do that?

Holding allows you to scroll back and forth a window at a time.
Without INS, if a new spot came in, DX4WIN would return to the newest
spots.  It does NOT keep new spots from coming in or causing the
window to scroll a line at a time for incoming spots.  All it does it
keep the window from scrolling all the way forward if you have gone
back a few screens, and a new spot comes in.  This is obviously much
harder to deal with during a contest.  Sorting by TIME instead of by
ARRIVAL helps, because new spots take the place of old spots.

Re: [Dx4win] Win 7 64 or 32

2014-04-04 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
You'll want to install your ham programs under their own directory 
(something like c:\ham programs\) so that you don't run into issues with 
Win 7 not allowing data to be written to the standard program 
directories, otherwise things work fine.

Greetings



I am currently in the process of upgrading from XP to Win 7

my question is will DX4WIN work under the 64 bit system ?

I want to install the correct type that most Ham software will run.



Thanks for your thoughts or personal experience

Re: [Dx4win] Dupes

2014-01-09 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I would like to humbly suggest that since logs can be exported, 
modified, and re-imported, that perhaps something like this would be 
better for a third-party tool. Just the discussion of defining what a 
dupe is shows to me that implementing such a feature as part of the 
core functionality of D4W might be difficult. With an external tool, it 
would be possible for the end-user to specify their particular 
definition of dupe (e.g., within 2 minutes, 1 minute, 5 minutes, 
same/different digital mode, etc.) without having to build all that 
logic into D4W.


Just my opinion.

You are right Teijo, a dupe definition is mandatory before thinking 
about removing. A dupe is a nearly exact time, say a 5 minutes window 
or precisely the same time, resulting either from typing old logs or 
importing old logs. I have faced this problem several times when 
working with PY0S old logs. A nice improvement in the delete dupee 
tool should be allowing the user to define the time window. I think 
several users have faced this problem before.

I think it won't be good to automatically remove dupes from the log!
Better have them marked by a red colour and let user decide

A definition of a dupe would be good.

Does it mean a dupe like in a contest i.e. a separate contact that has
been made on the same band but at a different time?

I think that in this case it is a bad idea to remove the dupes from the
log. The dupe contact might be the only one that is both in your log and
the other stations log. The first occurence might not be in the other
stations log at all for some reason (he/she worked somebody else, had a
computer glitch etc).

On the other hand I have noticed that my log contains some QSOs that are
separated only by seconds. They have resulted by importing the same log
twice into another logging sw that I used before DX4Win. This kind of
contacts I have removed manually which was time consuming.

[Dx4win] qrz download vs xml question

2013-12-26 Thread David Kozinn, K2DBK
I feel like I ought to know the answer to this question, but: Is there 
support in DX4WIN for qrz.com's XML feed yet? I recall seeing some 
discussion a while ago and according to the archives it's an asked-for 
feature, but I don't recall if there was ever any official word on this.


Since my main shack computer is always online I'd prefer to get the data 
in real-time vs. periodic downloads, but do I currently have an option 
at this point?


Thanks, and Happy New Year.
