[Dx4win] Comments in logbook?

2020-06-19 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN
Years ago, in the dark ages before we had electronics logs, it was very 
convenient to write a comment in the logbook. Something like “new dipole” or 
“new radio”. 

I would like to suggest a similar function for dx4win. Maybe have the program 
recognize and entry made with the callsign field starting with the #sign as a 
comment. No entries for qsl, etc. but just day, time, notes for this qso. Maybe 
the current frequency and mode. 

Items would appear chronologically in the log, but nowhere else. 

Not sure how difficult this would be, but it would be very useful, albeit only 
used occasionally. 

73, Tom W4KX

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Will Not Start

2020-04-07 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN
I had the same problem after an update failed. 

Wound up changing the home directory name for dx4win, and then downloading and 
installing a new version of dx4win. Before moving everything over to the new 
install, needed to run the update. Then just moved my license file, log files, 
and preferences over to the new one install. Now works like a champ!

It would probably require more information to pin point what it could be.
You'd need to show your config for the packet.are the clusters you're
trying active (my favorite one goes down sometimes. And sometimes, my first
3 or 4 choices are down...but I keep trying to I get one that does work).
So what is your packet configuration?

Hi Dave,

Yes it is checked for follow Radio,

The red arrow moves, but disappears from the map, as the map is not moving 
anywhere. I have to use the slider to see the red arrow again. Been that wat 
since version 8. 
I did ask questions then, but never got an answer, or any help.
 I have been a DX4WIN user from the start, but this is the only thing that 
never worked for me.

Dick,

Do you have Follow Radio checked at the bottom of the DX4WIN bandmap?  You may 
have to open the bandmap window all the way from top to bottom so that you can 
see the bottom section.  When you do that, it should follow your K3.  The red 
arrow moves up and down as you tune and it automatically updates with new spot 
info when your radio changes to a different band.

73,

Dave, N4QS

When doing Help | Check for Updates you will find a new version for the 
executable and other files.

This is the change log:

When editing a QSO, do not reset county if state changed and county is still 
valid

Error message when country database cannot be found

Added more satellites

Made Winkey interface compatible with newer versions

Redid IOTA checking; changes made are applied to the QSO. Values that were 
replaced are shown in the QSO Notes

Added MFSK sub-modes FT4 and JS8

During import, check for a valid island code

Multiple QSO operations will now remove multiple import messages

Custom award check did not mark QSO as changed when award was changed; Report 
the count of the number of awards that changed

Changed time tolerance test so a window of 2 seconds allows QSOs 2 seconds apart

Message when secondary backup directory is not named correctly

Catch F1 in GroupNr field if no groups have been defined

Fixed reading of some old logs

Added membership field to QSO window and Logbook window

Made form for selecting a report larger

If there is no prefix for a callsign, using F1 in the State field could pick 
from the wrong list

Fixed bug with double-click in WPX report

Test for RST field in filter was broken

Use callsign and suffix data for direction / distance calculation

Ignore text after left parenthesis for QSL manager search

Include sub-mode for dupe checking during import

Show mode / sub-mode in SameCall window

Menus are enabled again when selecting a skin

[Dx4win] Fwd: error messages upon Saving Data

2019-02-18 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN
Steve:

I tried to respond directly to you on your previous message from last week, but 
never got a response.

If you are running Windows 10, it is quite possible that “Controlled Folder 
Access” has been turned on during an update. You can either turn this feature 
off in WIN10, or list dx4win.exe as an exception (if you do this you’ll 
probably need to do the same thing for other programs like TQSL, etc.).

Under windows settings go to windows and security, then to windows security and 
then to virus and threat protection. Go to virus and threat protection and page 
down to the “Controlled Folder Access” settings.

Good luck!

73, Tom W4KX

Re: [Dx4win] Update problems

The same difficulty occurs when using dx4win to check the lotw adif 
confirmation file.

Looks like a good workaround is to add dx4win to the list of applications 
allowed controlled folder access.

Re: [Dx4win] Update problems

2018-12-15 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN
Turns out this is a problem with the fall update of windows 10, which by 
default enforces “controlled folder access”. Switch this off (in windows 
defender) and the update goes through seamlessly.

I see this with a number of other applications which are denied write access to 
necessary folders….

Another “feature”!

[Dx4win] Update problems

2018-12-11 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN
I updated successfully recently, and just tried to use update again without 
success.

Running dx4win 9.0.4.1176 under windows 10.

When I run “check for updates” I now see as error box from dx4win.exe that says 
“file access denied”.

After looking through the log, it looks like dx4win is looking for a file at:

C:\users\documernts\dx4w9upd.log

Which is a directory which does NOT exist!

Should be looking at:

C:\users\tom\documents\dx4w9upd.log

(Note the inclusion of a user name, in this case “tom”).

This file is in the correct directory, but in this case from the previous 
update. So, it looks like WPdate is trying to write the file to an incorrect 
directory.

Anyone else see the same thing?

[Dx4win] Ts-890s

2018-11-19 Thread Tom Doligalski via DX4WIN

Borrowed a Kenwood TS-590S while my Elecraft is in the shop. Radio seems to 
work fine, but can’t communicate with Dx4win. 

Device manager (windows 10) shows com5. Baud rate set at 9600 for Dx4win and 
the radio. Using the 870 rig file (per AD1C). 

Ideas?
