Arne,

If you have already created the Group, you just need to go to Filter,
Selection and click on the arrow in the upper right (next to All QSOs).
This will display the list of all groups that you have created.  Select the
one you want and click OK.

How does one generate a log file of QSOs for a group?  Trying to do so I get
a dulicate of my entire log.  I am wanting to have a separate log file of
just the QSOs in a group.

Hi Mike,

Yes, I used this same tutorial.  WSJT-X and N1MM worked great together.
There was a lot of activity on 6M FT4 towards the end of the contest.

This isn't a perfect solution, but it appears to have worked for me this
weekend:

This metho opens a second instance of WSJT that keeps its own log and

To Paul and the group,

 

I continue to have problems with dupes being created when importing digital
QSOs from WSJT-X.  It appears that DX4WIN uses the QSO Begin time when all
other logging programs, including N1MM, use the QSO End time.  The Log4OM2
website states that in the UK amateur regulations require that the QSO end
time be used.

 

Here is how dupes are created:

 

After making over 600 Qs in the ARRL VHF test over the weekend, I imported
all 600 from N1MM into DX4WIN (using Jim's ADIF to DX4WIN Conversion app).
All 600 showed up in DX4WIN and I then did an upload to LOTW.  This morning
I made a few more FT8 QSOs and imported the WSJT-X ADIF file directly into
DX4WIN (which I have done hundreds of times).  Much to my dismay, a bunch of
dupes were created.  I made about 120 digital QSOs in the VHF contest.
During the contest, when a digital contact is made, WSJT-X broadcasts the
QSO to N1MM and then save the contact in its own ADIF file.  When the QSO is
imported into N1MM, it used the QSO End time for each QSO's time.

 

When I imported the WSJT-X ADIF file this morning, DX4WIN used the QSO Begin
time when saving each QSO.  By the way, I have always kept all of my
previous digital QSOs in WSJT-X.  I never delete them.  So the QSOs that I
made yesterday were imported into DX4WIN today, but most were ignored
because they all showed the same QSO time.  The QSO Begin and End times will
often be in sync when a digital mode is completed quickly without any
repeats.  But we all know that it can sometimes take several minutes for a
QSO to complete.  There have been times when I finally get a RR73 from the
other station that are 10 to 15 minutes after the original start time.  I
know that a  few times yesterday due to QSB or QRM conditions on 6 meters.

 

Two questions for the group:

 

1.  Would Paul be willing to change the import map for ADIF files so
that DX4WIN uses the QSO End time - which is the apparent standard?
2.  If Paul is not willing to do that, is there a way for the user to
change the import mapping - so that I can do that myself?

 

I might add that these dupes due to time differences become an ongoing issue
with LOTW.  Now that I uploaded all of the 600 QSOs that I imported from
N1MM (using the QSO end time), I will now have an issue with any QSOs that
get imported into DX4WIN directly from WSJT-X - if the beginning and end
time would vary significantly (more than a minute).  So this will cause
duplicate QSOs to be uploaded to LOTW - which I try to avoid.

 

The other option is the manually edit the WSJT-X ADIF file to make the
beginning and end times the same so that the next time that I import that
file, it will not create duplicates.  This also requires that I delete the
duplicates that were already created in DX4WIN due to the time discrepancy.

 

The best solution would be the change the import mapping in DX4WIN so that
it uses the QSO End time.  Can anyone help me with that?

 

In the meantime, I have to spend this afternoon finding all the dupes that
were created this morning!

 

Thank you.

Dave, N4QS

That's one of the great things about "standards" - all you have to do is assert 
that there's one.

 

LoTW only sees the TIME_ON and not the TIME_OFF. So, the time that the QSO 
started is what LoTW tracks, not when it ends.

Bob,

Assuming you are using Version 9 of DX4WIN, the digital modes will be
imported correctly.  FT4 QSOs show up as MFSK for the mode and FT4 as the
submode.  FT8 QSOs show up as FT8 for the mode and no submode.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Digest, Vol 193, Issue 1

2020-05-07 Thread n4qs
Hi Bill,

Yes, I often find differences in the grid square.  I typically use the grid as 
reported by the Lotw download, since I assume that the other op chose the 
correct Station Location when he uploaded to Lotw.  There can also be 
differences in states and zones.  I believe some logging programs give you the 
option to automatically update your log data to correspond to what was reported 
via Lotw.  While every solution has pros and cons, an automatic log sync with 
Lotw data would be a nice option for those of us who make a lot of contacts.  
Given that TQSL has recently added more checking of correct Station Locations, 
it should make the Lotw data even more accurate.  Thus, I would use an auto 
sync function with Lotw if available in DX4WIN.  I make too many contacts to go 
in and look them up manually all the time.  The other option is to just ignore 
the differences.

I wonder if the lotwreport.notfound works.  Due to potential sync issues, I 
just downloaded my entire LotW confirmed data base. I then imported it and got 
a few hundred contacts in the not found file marked with X or C.  However, I

And if Paul (developer) were to implement these things you ask for, would you 
be willing to pay for it?  The man and his family have to eat too.
Or how about this, would you be willing to pay an annual fee for upgrades to 
DX4WIN ?  Other loggers with robust features demand this.
I too am a very long time user of DX4WIN.  I don't recall the year I started 
using it but it seems like the early 90s.  As I recall, Paul said long ago that 
he was freezing any further development of DX4WIN.  That lasted for a long 
time.  When we went from vers 8 to vers 9, I considered that a gift.  I can't 
even recall if we paid to get the new version, if we did it was something like 
$35.  For someone to whine and complain that they want their money's worth, I 
mean come on.  I'm sure you'd throw $35 over the bar in one evening or spend 
that for a mediocre lunch.  The other thing to consider is that perhaps Paul 
does not have time to devote to DX4WIN.
Maybe, he has just lost interest.

Here's a thought, write to Paul direct in stead of the user group.  We're not 
the ones that will be doing any develop of DX4WIN.

Re: [Dx4win] Very Satisfied with DX4WIN

2020-04-16 Thread n4qs
There is no reason why we all have to be resigned to the fact that DX4WIN
must be frozen in time and there will never be any more enhancements.  Paul,
after a seven year hiatus, recently added FT4 and FT8 as new modes and
provided support for QRZ.COM XML integration, along with some other nice
features like automatic updates.

For those of us you are weak signal DX enthusiasts, we would like to see UDP
Broadcast support so that we can automatically import digital contacts from
WSJT-X.  This is a major feature that is now supported by almost all other
logging programs.  DX4WIN has for years provided a very nice, seamless
integration between MMTTY and DX4WIN.  Providing the same for WSJT-X is all
that we are asking.  It is a major feature that is vitally needed,
especially as the summer E season approaches on 6 meters.

Last summer there were several openings on 6m from the Midwest in NA into
Europe where my entire screen in WSJT-X was lit up in red.  I needed to know
in real time which stations were new countries for me on 6M (any mode), but
I had to hand type each call into the QSO window of DX4WIN.  This was very
hectic and awkward when so many were calling at once.  I basically had to
ignore DX4WIN and work the pile up in WSJT-X.  After the dust settled, I
then imported the ADI file from WSJT-X into DX4WIN to find out if I had
worked any new ones.

I have recently tested another logging program that handles this integration
between WSJT-X and the logger very nicely.  The two programs talk to each
other exchanging data via UDP broadcast.  A window from the general logger
displays the calls from WSJT-X and tells you which ones are new for DXCC.
If you click on a call in WSJT-X to begin calling that station, the callsign
is immediately put into the Callsign field of the general logger.  A QRZ.COM
XML lookup takes place from the logger and the station's info is displayed
so that you can again confirm callsign, locations, grid, etc.--all while the
contact in WSJT-X is taking place.  Then when the contact is over and added
to the log in WSJT-X, it is also immediately added in the logging program.
You can immediately send a spot if desired.  All of this happens very fast
and seamlessly between the two programs -- very similar to how MMTTY is
currently integrated into DX4WIN.

Some may ask why I just don't go with the other logging program if I like it
so much.  I actually prefer many other features within DX4WIN mainly because
it can easily accommodate my 187,000+ contacts without getting too slow and
because it also provides group support for my DX-pedition calls.  And yes,
the country and awards databases maintained by Jim, AD1C, are the best.
Thank you Jim.  But the one glaring weakness in DX4WIN, based on the current
standard among virtually all actively supported logging programs, is the
lack of UDP broadcast support for communicating with other programs like
WSJT-X and FlDigi.

I might add that the other popular loggers also offer the option to
automatically upload to many services such as Lotw, Clublog, QRZ.com and
others.  This summer, as 6 meters heats up, it would be nice to have the
option to turn on automatic updates to Clublog so that each contact is
immediately uploaded to Clublog.  That way DX stations on the other end can
use the link on my QRZ.com page to see if they made it into may log.  I have
used this feature in Belize and Grand Cayman using N1MM+ and it worked very
well.

All the other loggers provide the option to turn UDP broadcast support on or
off and the same goes for automatic updates to Lotw or Clublog.  So, for
those users of DX4WIN who do not have any interest in these features, Paul
should allow them to simply not turn them on.  In short, UDP broadcast
support is a current standard within the hobby that needs to be incorporated
into DX4WIN.  I hope that we can use this forum to continue to discuss new
enhancements as our fascinating hobby continues to evolve.

Dave, N4QS

It seems now almost mandatory that every few years we get a few people
theatrically "leaving DX4Win" after not getting "upgrades". When pressed on
what those upgrades should be, the answer is either silence or a vague hand
motion about FT8 or some other digital flavor-of-the-day-mode integration.
Interestingly, when this happens, the bells-and-whistles logger of choice
seems to be different every 

Re: [Dx4win] Development

2020-04-04 Thread n4qs
Paul,

Try LogHX3.  It can be setup to look and operate like DX4WIN, but has all
the additional features that we have been asking for.  In just one week, I
have it up and running with 167,000 QSOs imported from DX4WIN.  Alexei,
RX4HX, appears to be very actively supporting it with frequent updates.  I
will continue to use DX4WIN for storing past dxpeditions, and I have been a
long supporter of DX4WIN.  But I will likely move to LogHx for everyday
logging from my main station.  I love the way it integrates with WSJT-X,
MMTTY, FLDigi and other programs.  It fully supports UDP broadcasts.  It
will automatically upload QSOs to Clublog, QRZ.COM and other websites.
These are all features that I need to have especially as I get ready for the
summer Es season on 6 meters.

LoTW/ aand Clublog operation has an application that works well with other

This is my last post and I will move on.  Yes, I know about the "Imported QSO 
is ignored" feature when importing and I use it all the time.  But even when 
you select that (it's the default), you can still have situations in which 
duplicates are imported.

The point is there are all sorts of ways to get duplicates into the log and you 
have no way to identify them.  I was just trying to agree with Paul that it 
would be a nice feature to have a function or utility within DX4WIN that would 
help us identify potential dupes.

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.

Hi Dan
Re garding dupes, I do not mean during a contest (every contest program will do 
that) but for the general log.
Example
I have run a specific contest program, and have exported to an adif file. I 
need to import this file into DX4Win. This is where each imported QSO should be

Re: [Dx4win] Ideas for development

2019-11-27 Thread n4qs
Paul,

I agree and dupes can appear in the log for many reasons.  Here are a couple:

1.  When an FT8 QSO does not complete the first time, you often need to send 
the 73 message a second or third time and this can cause the QSO to be logged 
two or three times if you are not paying attention.  Currently, I try to use 
ADIF Master to go into the wsjt-x log to find and delete the dupes.  But I 
sometimes miss a dupe and it ends up in DX4WIN and often gets uploaded to LOTW 
as well.

2.  For those of us who attempt to use other logging programs that interface 
directly with WSJT-X such as Log4om and DXLabs.  If I have already imported FT8 
QSOs using the wsjt-x log and then attempt to do so from the other logging 
program at a later date, dupes are often created due to the QSO time 
differences between wsjt-x and the other logging program.  I know that you can 
set the Time window to match QSO in secs (other logs) when importing (See 
preferences, import tab), but this can still get tricky if the other log 
program tracks both beginning and ending time for the QSO.  

It would be nice if we could run a utility in DX4WIN to identify and eliminate 
dupes.  With 170,000 QSOs in my log, it is difficult to track them down on my 
own.  You idea is a good one.

I also like suggestions #2 and #3.  Great ideas that would be used extensively 
by me if available.

73,

Dave, N4QS

Re: [Dx4win] 51st state

2019-10-26 Thread n4qs
This has happened to me several times.  You have made a contact with a
station in DC.  As I recall, you can fix this by doing a search (F8),
putting DC in the state field, and then hitting enter.  That should bring up
any stations that sent DC during a contest.  Click on each QSO and clear the
state field since DC is not a state.  Hit enter to save the change.  That
should get you back to 50 states.  This normally happens when importing a
contest file into DX4WIN.

Re: [Dx4win] Fwd: WSJT to DX4WIN

2019-10-15 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
Hi Ray,

 

Glad to hear that the first import worked for you.  In the future when you add 
more QSOs in WSJT-X, you just import the entire logfile the same way into 
DX4WIN.  As mentioned below, the default selection when handling dupes is that 
any duplicated QSOs from prior imports will be ignored.  So you can keep 
importing the entire log file, and DX4WIN will ignore the prior QSOs and only 
add the new QSOs.  You do not have to apply a date filter.  Keep importing the 
entire logfile from WSJT-X.  Just make sure when you get to the window that 
asks how to handle dupes, you just accept the default which is “the prior 
duplicate QSO will be ignored.”  This is a very slick feature.

 

But we still need the UDP broadcast support so that each new QSO is 
automatically imported into DX4WIN.  Then we will not have to repeat this 
manual import process over and over….

Hello dave, just to tell you that I thank you very much for your advice on 
WSJTX and tell you that I already managed to do it, although there were only 
225 QSOs, now I need to know how you separate in the WSJTX log what you already

deleted from the WSJTX?  Or is there a better way to do it.

Hello Raymundo,

Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to import your logged QSOs from WSJT-X 
into DX4WIN.  We have asked Paul to consider adding UDP broadcast support to 
DX4WIN, so that once a QSO is logged within WSJT-X it would also automatically 
be logged in DX4WIN.  But Paul has not responded to this request -- even though 
most other logging programs already support UDP.

So now all you can do is manually import the logfile from WSJT-X into DX4WIN.  
This is not as easy as it sounds because the WSJT-X logfile is hidden in an 
obscure folder within Windows.  I have shortened the search process by mapping 
a drive in Windows to the folder within WSJT-X so that I can find the file 
faster.  But it is still not ideal.  We need UDP support.

To manually import the log file from WSJT-X, go to File in DX4WIN, then 
Import/Export, make sure ADIF is the file type selected, in the smaller window 
select File again, Import and then go find the logfile for WSJT-X.  Select the 
logfile and either double click or click on Open.  You will see a new window 
for "Options for duplicate QSOs", and make sure "that Imported QSO is ignored" 
is the one appearing in the drop down menu.  You want DX4WIN to ignore all 
duplicates as it imports the log from WSJT-X.  Click OK and you are done.

I have over 6,500 FT8 QSOs and 1,300 FT4 QSOs in my log and they all have been 
imported that way.  The manual import of the logfile is very time consuming and 
laborious, and can be a real problem when you are in the middle of a big 
opening on 6 meters into EU.  DX4WIN is an excellent logging problem except for 
this one glaring weakness.

Now all you can do is manually import the WSJT-X logfile over and over and 
over...

I hope this helps.

Hi Shelby,

 

I am sorry to hear about your brother-in-law.  Yes, I have literally imported 
thousands of times from WSJT-X into DX4WIN from two different computers.  I 
know the drill, but it still is not easy to explain to a newbie.  More 
importantly, we need UDP Broadcast so that QSOs are imported immediately.  As I 
keep mentioning, when you are being called by twenty EU stations during an 
opening on 6M, you really do not have time to stop and import.  But there are 
reasons I want to see the QSO in DX4WIN—to see if the QSO is a new country, 
send a Spot, verify a callsign using the QRZ.COM XML interface, etc.  FT4 is 
even faster and all the more reason for real-time updates to DX4WIN.  As you 
can tell, I would very much like Paul to respond to this request.  These new 
digital modes are fast and would match nicely with the built in speed of DX4WIN 
– but we need UDP broadcast support to make that happen.

Dave, I don't find the WSJT-X log file difficult at all, to locate? I simply 
click on file, then open log directory, then wsjt-s log. I manually import all 
FTx contacts this way, as I don't have DX4WIN on my contest computer, personal 
choice. Every contact is manually imported from contest computer to computer

duplicates as it imports the log from WSJT-X.  Click OK and you are done.

I have over 6,500 FT8 QSOs and 1,300 FT4 QSOs in my log and they all have been 
imported that way.  The manual import of the logfile is very time consuming and 
laborious, and can be a real problem when you are in the middle of a big 
opening on 6 meters into EU.  DX4WIN is an excellent logging problem except for 
this one glaring weakness.

Now all you can do is manually import the WSJT-X logfile over and over and 
over...

I hope this helps.

Hi Irwin,

 

I have also used JTAlert, and you have the same problem.  As long as DX4WIN 
cannot receive UDP broadcasts of QSO information, no program would be able to 
automatically upload QSOs to it.  It is a limitation of DX4WIN, not the other 
logging apps.

Possibly this can be done in JTAlert. This program will transfer FT8 QSO's to 
Ham Radio Deluxe and other logging programs.

[Dx4win] Feature request -- UDP support

2019-09-18 Thread n4qs
I would like to request that Paul add UDP broadcast and import support
within DX4WIN so that we can interface WSJT-X to DX4WIN like it now can be
done with N1MM+.  I operated the ARRL VHF contest this weekend and had N1MM
and WSJT-X working together.  Every time I made a FT8 contact in WSJT-X, the
contact was automatically added in N1MM.  This allowed me to keep track of
dupes and scoring in real time.  Everything worked very seamlessly.  Both
programs actually exchanged information back and forth via the UDP
broadcasts.

 

We need the same capability in DX4WIN.  I have made over 7,500 FT8 and FT4
contacts over the past two summers.  Both modes are becoming increasingly
critical for weak signal DXing on 160 meters and 6 meters especially.
Although I have added to my DXCC band totals using FT8 on several of the
other bands as well.  It is not very handy to have to manually import the
adi logfile from WSJT-X into DX4WIN.  There are times in the heat of the
moment that you need the contacts added to DX4WIN but you do not have time
to stop and do the import.  This happened to me this summer in the middle of
a major opening into EU on 6 meters when I had a screen full of G stations
calling me.  Adding the WSJT-X contacts automatically and in real time helps
be to verify call signs, ensure the QSOs are valid and quickly report spots
on the cluster.  It also helps me to see when I have worked a new country
and to look up more info about a station via the QRZ.COM XML interface.

 

Paul, is there any reason that you do not think it is a good idea to support
the importing of QSOs via UDP broadcasts?  I wonder what other users think.
Any comments?

 

So many other programs support UDP, I am wondering if there is some
technical reason that DX4WIN cannot support it?

 

73,

 

Dave, N4QS

[Dx4win] FW: DX4WIN World Map

2019-09-11 Thread n4qs


Yes, I like the map too!  And I was able to find PEI on the map.  I first
did an F8 search, clicked on the IOTA field, did an F1 search, found Prince
Edward Island, and selected it.  My logbook then displayed all my contacts
with PEI.  When I doubled clicked on one of them, PEI was highlighted in
yellow on the map.  You may need to zoom in to see it.

Subject: [Dx4win] DX4WIN World Map

Hello all DX4WIN users.

I have recently updated to the latest version of DX4WIN, being version
9.0.4.1176.

Very recently I came to the realization that the world map in DX4WIN, in my
view, is seriously deficient.

For that matter, I don't think it has ever been updated, well not since the
early versions of DX4WIN, like the Version 5 I first owned and used.

I like it's functionality, with all it's features and projection options and
it is easy to use. I have it on my LCD screen always and visitors to my
radio room are certainly impressed with this visual aid.

But, after all these years, it seems it has never been updated, that is, it
does not even show the Canadian districts. I could not even locate Prince
Edward Island.

Am I incorrect in saying this is a USA DX Logging program, as it only shows
USA states in detail and does not show much in the way of any other country
details, not even for your very dear, nearest country neighbor, being
Canada, or have I missed something, like a World Map update, since using
this program for 20 years or more.

There is much more of the world and DX logging than just USA states.

I hope there is an updated map somewhere and that someone can advise me of
how to solve this problem, such as maybe to delete this DX4WIN word map
screen and find a better map or a even regrettably a better logging program.

Regards, from Ron. vk3io.

Does anyone know a way to either: re-install version 9.0.5, or re-install

The DX4WIN site only has 9.0.3.

Dick,

 

There are a couple ways that I adjust the frequency range to keep the red arrow 
visible.  First, you can click on the checkmark on the bottom.  That re-centers 
the bandmap and makes the whole band visible.  You can also hit the plus or 
minus signs at the bottom until you see the red arrow again.  But if you tune 
the radio off the top or bottom of the scale, my version will automatically 
move the scale up or down to follow the red arrow.

Re: [Dx4win] New computer, having issues

Mark,

A couple of things to check:

1.  In DX4WIN, preferences, packet2, make sure you have typed localhost:7300
and checked the enable button.
2.   In VE7CC, Configuration, Ports/Logging Programs, in the middle section,
make sure that you have checked the enable button for local host and that
you have selected Use Port 7300.

You might have to restart both programs.

In the packet window of DX4WIN, I select LOCAL HOST 7300 for connection, but
nothing happens.  No errors, nada.

When I click on SH/DX in the packet window, it says "no connection active"

I can connect to other named packet sources in DX4WIN on the new computer,

Am I missing a setting in DX4WIN or VE7CC?

Use the short cut keys.  When you have a call in the callsign box in the QSO

correct heading.  For long path, just press Control F11.

When looking at the WAS report, at the very bottom is the mystery state with
a state name of the letter "C" and the St column has "|l" as the state. It
indicates that it has been confirmed for MIX, PHO & DIG on 160, 80 and 30
but clicking on that "confirmation" results in "no matching QSO found"

Re: [Dx4win] Help With Importing WSJT .adi

2018-11-08 Thread n4qs
I run WSJT-X on two different computers within my station.  Both PCs are
networked.  To make it easy to find the log files, I have mapped network
drives to each wsjt-x folder on the separate computers.  When I go to import
either one of the files from within DX4WIN, I go to File, Import, ADIF, and
then select This PC.  Under Network locations, both WSJT-X folders (on two
different PCs) are displayed.  Clicking on one or the other displays the
wsjt-x_log.adi file that I need for importing into DX4WIN.  This approach
makes it very easy to find the right file on either computer.  It would also
work with only one computer.  Just map a drive to the file location that Jim
described below.  Importing from WSJT-X becomes a snap!

It sounds like you are importing the wrong file.  The ADIF log file that
WSJT-X creates can be found here:

%localappdata%\WSJT-X\wsjtx_log.adi

This is the file you need to import into DX4WIN.

This used to bother me.  I solved the problem by unchecking the "db reports

doing that, nothing is saved to the comments field in the ADIF file and thus
nothing gets imported into the Call Sign Notes field in DX4WIN.

Len (K1NU) noted that when a WSJT log is imported into DX4WIN, DX4WIN puts
the contents of the  field of the WSJT log into the DX4WIN
"Callsign Notes" field. 

What is in the WSJT  field is usually the mode and signal reports
such as "FT8  Sent: +01  Rcvd: +00". This is clearly QSO-related and not
Callsign-related information.  

When I look at an ADIF specification, it says the  field is a
Comment field for the QSO (not for the Callsign).

I do not know why WSJT decided to put the mode and signal reports in the
 field because other fields already contain the mode and signal
reports. DX4win imports these mode and signal report fields into the proper
parts of the DX4WIN log.

The problem with importing the  field into the DX4WIN Callsign
Notes is when you work a station multiple times. With each repeat QSO,
QSO-related info is appended to what is already in Callsign Notes. With many
QSOs, Callsign Notes gets pretty mucked-up with info that does not belong
there.

I would like to see DX4WIN make a change so that WSJT  field is
put into DX4WIN Callsign Notes.

Re: [Dx4win] Corrupt state file?

2018-06-22 Thread n4qs
Yes, I had the same problem a few weeks ago.  As I recall, I had imported a 
contest log that included DC as the state.  To find it, I did a search (F8) for 
DC in the state field.  There was one QSO that came up.  I merely deleted DC 
and cleared the state field and saved the QSO.  That got me back to 50 states.

I hope that helps.

Hi all,

After I downloaded the most recent update files, I seem to have a corrupted 
‘state’ file.  

Now, when I do a Reports->WAS->Listing, I have a bogus state entry under 
Wyoming, and my Summary window says I have 51 states confirmed on some bands.   
Anyone else see this?

I tried renaming country.dat to try to make D4W download it again, but then I 
get an error when I launch D4W.

Re: [Dx4win] Lost the spot window

2018-06-12 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
Fixed!  It took a complete reinstall of 9.03 and then an update to 9.04.  I 
then loaded the config file from the previous install and when the windows 
loaded -- there was the DX Spot window!

That only took about five hours to figure out!  Despite battery backup, a long 
power failure yesterday seemed to mess up the computer.  DX4 was not running, 
but when I tried to start it last night everything blew up.

Seems to be all okay now.  Back to working DX.

Re: [Dx4win] 51 States -- Back to 50

2018-03-28 Thread n4qs
Kostas,

Thanks for the tip.  Based on your suggestion, I merely did a search of my 
entire log and put DC in as the state.  Four QSOs came up with DC as the state. 
 I merely deleted DC and saved each QSO.  Now the summary report shows 50 
states again.  There is still one bug:  The WAS listing report still shows a 
row under WY with weird letters and symbols in the St field.  But there are no 
longer any Cs in any of the band/mode boxes.  At lease my totals are back to 
normal.  

I would hope that Paul can prevent this from happening in the future and also 
figure out a way to defrag the WAS list so that the bogus row at the bottom 
goes away.

Thanks to all who responded.

I remember that it happens when you import a log which has a DC as a state. 
There is nothing we can do to correct it, except you find a previous version of

import this again. Only Paul can help you.

[Dx4win] 51 States

2018-03-28 Thread n4qs
My log with over 138,000 Qs is now showing 51 states when I run the WAS
summary or listing reports.  The listing report shows a line after WY at the
very bottom of the report.  There are a bunch of weird characters in the St
field and the State name field on this last row.  Then there are Cs in the
boxes for Mix, Pho, CW, Dig, 80 and 40.  When I try to click on one of the
Cs, there is an error message that says "No Matching QSO Found".  Once I
click OK to remove the error message, I get a blank QSO window except for
the State field which is filled in with the letters SL.  The S is red and
the L is black.  If I try to hit F2 and do a search for SL in the State
field, I get nothing.

 

It is apparent that there is a corrupted QSO in the database, but the
question is how do I find it and delete it?  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Click F8, type in station call sign, hit enter
All QSOs with that station will be displayed in logbook window
Click QSLs tab, Set QSL Label flag, follow prompts
Click Print QSL labels under same QSLs tab
Select the custom label that you would like to use
Uncheck most Print options (Group Names, Method Labels, etc.)  I only use
Print Via Manager
Click on Edit and review format
Multiple QSOs should be showing in the preview
You can uncheck Commercial to free up more space for QSOs
Go back to main Print QSL labels pop up window
Click on Print, follow prompts
Labels should print

I can normally get up to 4 QSOs to print on one label.

Hope this helps.

Re: [Dx4win] Not saving updates from QRZ

2018-02-24 Thread n4qs
Jim and John,

I just replicated the problem here as well.  I am a QRZ subscriber, so
normally when making a QSO I hit Update QSO in the Callsign/Mgr lookup.  But
I have found it does not update with new data unless the field in the
logging window is blank.  For example, if I have already worked the station
and from a previous contact have a four digit grid entered, the update will
not change that entry -- even though QRZ is showing the entire six digit
grid.  I have to delete the prior value and then click on Update QSO.  The
new six digit value is then entered into the empty grid field.  Same goes
for name, city, county -- any of the other fields.

So when it comes to county, I just found a prior QSO that did not have a
county filled in.  I attempted to Update QSO from the Callsign/Mgr lookup
window.  The county shows up in the log entry window and then I save.  But
when I reopen that QSO, the new county info is not there.  Like Jim said, I
have to do it two or three times.  I noticed that the original blank county
field had two dashes (--).  My theory is that the program sees those two
dashes and assumes that the county field has data in it, and then does not
update the new data.  You have to click in that field to get it to delete
the -- and then it appears that the new data will fill and then be saved.
Not exactly sure about this behavior, but it appears to be consistent with
how the other fields get updated.

Re: [Dx4win] Logging FT8 qsos in V9

2018-02-24 Thread n4qs
Ed,

Here are my answers to your questions:

1.  You can enter by hand.  Version 9 supports db signal reports.  Just
enter -01 for example instead of 599.

2.  Yes, you should log FT8 QSOs using the db format for signal reports.
That is the accepted norm.  Even LOTW supports that format.

3.  Yes, I just import the wsjt-x log file directly into DX4WIN-- just like
N1MM+.  DX4WIN will add the db formatted signal reports (if you are using
Version 9).  No, I never clear the log file in WSJT-X.  When you import the
log into DX4WIN the default option is to ignore all duplicates.  So any
previous contacts are ignored by DX4WIN and only any new ones are added on
each successive import.

4.  DX4WIN does not currently interface with JTAlert.  I wish it did!
Alternatively, WSJT-X supports UDP broadcast of logged contacts.  Some other
logging programs use this feature to automatically pull in new contacts from
WSJT-X.  I wish DX4WIN would do that.

5.  Not sure about Jim's script and XP.  You will have to ask him.

I hope this helps.

73,

Dave, N4QS

Subject: [Dx4win] Logging FT8 qsos in V9

ok, newbie to FT8.  Made my first FT8 Qso last night, I think (lol)

WSJT has the CAT control of my FTdx5000, so when I bring up DX4win, I get
the com error, and just close it a move on, so that DX4Win comes up and 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] DX4Win - Elecraft K3 - Remote Rig

2018-02-20 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
John,

In my case, I am using RemoteRig boxes at both the remote and control sites.  I 
have a Static IP at the remote site and I forward two or three ports that the 
two boxes use to communicate.  I am not sure if I prioritized the port 
connections in the routers at each end.  Will have to check.  No, I do not have 
Wifi cameras and other equipment actively engaged at either end.  No Wifi 
mouses/keyboard.  (I use Bluetooth.)  Not sure what you mean by backhaul 
distance.  The remote site is about 10 miles from my home (control site).  
Latency is normally not an issue.  I regularly operate major contests with full 
control of the remote K3 and all accessories.  Audio streaming is normally 
excellent.

Dave, N4QS

Interesting problem.  Are either of you using a Static or Dynamic IP?  Also, 
have you prioritized this port connection in your router?  Is there other 
router activity going on in your home like WiFi cameras, IP phones and WiFi 
mouse/keyboard and such?  What is the back haul distance between remote and ham

Re: [Dx4win] DX4Win - Elecraft K3 - Remote Rig

2018-02-20 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
John and Kostas,

I also have a K3/0 mini and I am glad to hear this problem happens to other 
users.  (No, not really!)  My case is a little different.  I never have a 
problem with DX4WIN at the control site losing connection to the K3 at the 
remote site.  Stays connected -- rock solid for hours on end.  I think I set 
the poll rate at only 2000 ms and set max tries to 3.

My problem is with N1MM+.  It loses connection quite frequently -- about once 
or twice an hour on a good day.  That will typically throw me out of run mode 
and I must right click on the band map to Reset Radios.  I figured that N1MM+ 
is somehow polling the radio differently than DX4WIN.  There is a setting to 
slow the polling 50% and 100% versus normal, but the same thing happens on all 
three settings.  N1MM+ does not have a way to increase Max Tries -- so that may 
be the problem.  I have recently sent my issue to the N1MM+ reflector with no 
response.

Another ham in our local contest club mentioned that he once had the same issue 
and his problem ended up being RF getting into the computer cables.  He cured 
it by adding toroid filters to the cables.  Since DX4WIN works fine, I am not 
sure that is the answer to my problem.  But it could be yours -- think about if 
there is any chance RF is getting into the pc.

Let me know what you find out.

73,

Dave, N4QS

I use a Kenwood 480 with remoterig and happens to me also. I believe the 
problem is that when dx4win looses cat control, deactivate the cat control (com 
port). Cat control via internet looses some packets from time to time. Dx4win 
thinks that lost the cm port and deactivate it.

I use the same setup with writelog also. When writelog looses the cat control 
the freq freezes, writelog continues to work and after some seconds finds again 
the radio.

Some others users complain about the same: Dx4win pop up a message every time 
it looses the CAT control - com port. Writelog behaviour would be much better 
to have.

I tried to pre-emptively add 3Y0Z (Bouvet) before the expedition actually
begins so I can see spots as soon as they start appearing - or should I say
so I can be alerted when an ATNO is spotted. Right now 3Y0Z is coming up
Antarctica. 

 

I tried to add the callsign to Bouvet but when I select File, Database,
Countries, I get a screen saying "Country editor not available".

 

So, will AD1C be publishing a new country file that includes 3Y0Z with a
start date of "around" January 23, 2018, the earliest estimated date of
arrival on the island? 

 

Good luck everyone! See you in the pileups.

Re: [Dx4win] How to change mapping for FT8

2017-12-19 Thread n4qs
Hi Mike,

Problem solved

Yes, I am importing the adif file from WSJT-X directly into DX4WIN using the
ADIF import filter.  Works great.  Mode is correct.  Signal reports now are
correct.  The only problem is the Comments field from WSJT-X goes into the
Notes for this Call field.  For example, after an import I will typically
see the following in the Notes for this Call field:

FT8  Sent: -08  Rcvd: -02

But I just solved the problem by simply unchecking the "db reports to
comments" option under the reporting tab of settings in WSJT-X.  This used
to be an important way to store mode and signal report data when the prior
versions of DX4WIN did not accept FT8 as a mode.  But now there is no need
to retain this info since it is being imported properly into DX4WIN.  By
turning that option off, nothing goes in the Comments field in WSJT-X and
thus nothing gets imported into the Notes for this Call field in DX4WIN.
Simple workaround.  Sorry for the wasted bandwidth.  Hi, hi

Now back to working DX...

Subject: RE: [Dx4win] How to change mapping for FT8

Hello Dave,

In that case, you should not need to edit anything.  Make sure FT8 is
enabled as a mode:
File > Preferences > Station > Modes
Make sure you have FT8 selected as a valid mode for any awards you chase:
File > Awards > Valid Modes

In WSJT-X, do NOT check Convert Mode to RTTY or dB Report to Comments in
File > Settings > Reporting.

Now, you should (should being the operative word here!) be able to import
your WSJT-X file directly, have the mode appear correctly, and have the
signal reports appear in the proper fields.  If you are not logging the QSOs
directly in DX4WIN, and simply importing the WSJT-X adif file, it should
(there's that should word, again) not matter what radio you are using, or
whether your radio uses SSB or Data mode to work the digi modes.

manual manipulation of the ADIF file.  It would make importing of WSJT-X files 
a snap.  I thought DX4WIN has a way to remap imports.

[Dx4win] How to change mapping for FT8

2017-12-19 Thread n4qs
Does anyone know how I can change the mapping for importing FT8 QSOs?  The
remarks are currently going into the Notes for this Call field.  I always
have to cut and paste to move them into the Notes for this QSO field.  How
can I change the mapping so that the remarks go directly into the Notes for
this QSO field?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: [Dx4win] F8 Lookup Specific QSO by Callsign

2017-11-13 Thread n4qs
I am having problems with searching today as well.  I just worked J5T on 20M 
RTTY.  I have updated the QSO and it shows in the logbook.  I double click on 
the entry in logbook to reopen the QSO.  When the J5T 20M RTTY QSO is showing 
again in the entry window, I double click on the Country window for J5 in the 
box for 20M/Digital -- expecting to see all J5 contacts made on 20M RTTY.  All 
of the previous ones show, but the new one that I just made does not show up.  
If I click just on the 20M box heading in the country window, the new RTTY QSO 
shows along with all other previous 20M contacts made in all modes.

The same thing goes when I click on the 15M CW box in the country window.  I 
had an earlier QSO with J5T on 15M CW today, but it does not show up if I click 
on the 15M/CW box in the country window.  It does show up if I just click on 
the 15M heading which brings up all QSOs made with J5 on 15M.

So something is wrong with the mode filter in the country window.  This just 
started with 9.01 or 9.02.  It used to work just fine.

F8 is supposed to work as in older versions.

Using Alt-F8 you can specify a mode group; to search for any digital mode for

Re: [Dx4win] PzRotatorAx not working in 9.02

2017-11-10 Thread n4qs
Steve,

I am using the same setup in Preferences as you show below for version 8.05.
Nothing changed when I upgraded to 9.02.

When you do make the change and save it, you have to close DX4WIN and
restart for the rotator to become active.  You also have to select Tracking
from the main panel of PstRotator and also select DX4WIN under Tracker.

Changing this to DX4PST does not change the results.

Steve,

PstRotator is working fine here with DX4WIN v. 9.02.  I actually have it 
networked on three different machines.  I just followed the directions on how 
to setup DX4WIN for tracking -- as found in the PstRotator user manual.  
Contact me offline if you want to check your settings.  I just hit F11 to turn 
the rotator from within DX4WIN.  Works great.

My bands 20 and above show status of Normal, but rotator doesn't work.

For WriteLog PzRotatorAz brings up a daughter DDE window.

When I select DX4WIN in PzRotatorAz no daughter DDE window is created. I don't 
know if one should be.

So, my original query remains - has anyone gotten the Rotator function to work 
with 9.02 and DX4WIN? It may be that PzRotatorAz requires some updating.

I set-up the logbook again, updated again, and the same thing happened! Yes,

Subject: [Dx4win] Upgrade tips for 9.01 (quick start guide)

Here's a quick upgrade cheat sheet for 9.01.  There are two important parts:

*  Migrating your configuration (preferences) from the OLD to the NEW
version

*  Copying (not moving) your log file.  The file format will be changed when
it is read into DX4WIN 9.01.  If you change the old file and write it back,
then your old version of DX4WIN will not be able to read it.  *** READ THIS
SENTENCE A COUPLE OF TIMES SO YOU UNDERSTAND!!! ***

Here are the steps:

1.  Using your OLD version, go to File | Preferences.  Then File |
Write INI File.  The default name is DX4WIN.INI   *** remember where
this file is! ***

2.  Install 9.01 and start it.  It should come up with the default
configuration and a SAMPLE log.

3.  Follow the instructions you received with your license key.
DX4WIN cannot be running when you are installing the license key.

4.  Using the NEW version, go to File | Preferences.  Then File | Load
Configuration File.  Navigate to the file you wrote in step #1 above, it's
in your old DX4WIN SAVE directory.  Double-click on the file name, it should
be DX4WIN (or whatever you named it) and say "Configuration File" to the
right.

5.  Next, copy (don't move) your log file (.DXL) from your
old SAVE directory to your new SAVE directory.   Right-click on the
file in the old location and choose COPY (not CUT). Then navigate to the new
SAVE directory, right-click and choose PASTE.

*** The next step is VERY IMPORTANT ***

6.  Using the NEW version, go to File | Open Log File.  Click on the
down-arrow arrow next to "Look in...".  If the path is not the full path to
your DX4W901 SAVE directory, you must navigate there first.
When you see the .DXL file, double-click on it to open it.
DO NOT OPEN THE LOG FILE IN THE OLD LOCATION!!!


That's pretty much all you have to do.

Please post questions to the REFLECTOR, do not send me personal E-mail.  My
mailbox is already too full with messages that I don't have time to answer.

Re: [Dx4win] new features in 901

2017-10-20 Thread n4qs
Hi Mike,

Yes, I did that, but then found that I had to select QRZ Online from the
drop down menu under Data Source at the top.  Now it works great.  This is a
very nice feature -- especially how you can update and populate the QSO
fields by clicking on one button.  Very nice enhancement.  Thank you Paul!

Paul talked about all the new features.

I would like to note some long awaited features which I liked most in 901:

-> Auto connect in clusters

-> xml data with QRZ.com plus alt+f3 opens direct the browser to qrz!

-> Separate DXCC application either via LotW either via paper cards.

-> Auto update for files and dx4win.

-> new modes and reports (for the ft8 funs - I hate this mode... :) )

-> new search! Alt+f8 and you can search for data, phone, cw

-> in QSL methods added OQRSd (direct) and OQRSb (buro)

and much more according Paul's email...

Re: [Dx4win] Network access Version 9

This may or not respond to your question.  I save my log to OneDrive in the
cloud, which allows my four separate computers at three different locations

I have my log on a network server to allow using two operating positions in

Yes, JT65 does get imported into the mode field.  I was thinking about JT9

Hello Bob,

The program only does phone, cw, and digital because that is what the League
counts for DXCC; they don't care which digital mode you use for your digital
DXCC.  The reports generator looks at the entire log, or a selection, but
will not recognize the F8 filter.

There are two ways to get the report info you want.  One (I think the
easiest) is to use the method I described in my last email.  The other would
be to assign all of your JT65 QSOs to a group, make a selection (different
than a filter) of that group number, and do your report on the selection.

The F8 filter will not work this way; the report will still look at all of
the QSOs in your log.  There are a couple of ways to do it, but I think the
easiest would be to filter for JT65, export the filtered QSOs to another log
file, and do your report(s) from that file.  None of the ARRL awards care
about signal reports, so you don't need them for a submission.

Paul has announced that he is working on a new version and it is in beta
test.  I'm sure he is reading the reflector and will have this import thing
corrected in the new version.

FWIW, I find it easier to log the QSOs directly in DX4WIN, rather than
importing my WSJT-X log.

Robert,

If you import the QSOs from WSJT-X into DX4WIN, JT65 and the received and
sent signal reports should show up in the Notes for this Call box--which is
an incorrect mapping.  You then must manually cut and paste to move the JT65
comments from the Notes for this Call box into the Notes for this QSO box.
If you are entering the QSOs manually, you can enter JT65 directly into the
Notes for the QSO box.  Once you have JT65 entered into the Notes for this
QSO box for all of your Jt65 QSOs, you can do a search by pressing F8 and
then entering JT65 in the Notes box -- when you hit enter all of your JT65
Qs should be displayed.  With this filter displayed, you should be able to
then run reports as you want.

Rumor has it that Paul may be working on a new version that will fix this
problem.  Can any beta testers speak to this?

How do I get the JT65 mode into the reports?

I have logged over 100 Q's and the they do show up at JT65 in the mode
column of the logbook.

 

I'm trying to determine which DX countries I have worked..

Tough luck -- it's happened to me before.  If you have previously saved the

Subject: [Dx4win] Lost Settings

Hello,

 I have been using this program for a very long time and this is a first for
myself.

I am using Version 8.05 on a Windows XP Pro machine that is not on-line for
the Internet.

 Today I fired up the machine and an error code came up when I started
DX4WIN program. I think it was a cfg file. Not 100% sure due to it came up
and went away quick. My saved log did not open. I shut down the program and
rebooted my computer. 

 When I started up the DX4WIN program I had to open my saved file. Good news
was I saw the last QSO I made yesterday. Bad news is I had to go into the
Preferences to reset all my settings.

 Any idea what happened?

 I do have the entire program saved on a flash stick. Is there a way I can
get my old settings back from the saved program?

Re: [Dx4win] Importing JT65

2016-08-23 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
John,

Your suggestion solved the problem.  I downloaded and ran ADIF Master.
Opened wsjtx_log.adi and left clicked on the header "Comment".  That brought
up a pull down list of header names.  I selected Notes and the header was
changed to Notes.  I saved the file and then imported it into DX4WIN.  The
comment information now went into the Notes for this QSO field instead of
the Notes for this Call field.  This is better than having to change 195
QSOs by hand.

Now if we could just solve the JT9 issue.  Hi, hi

Thanks to Jim, Lee and John for the assistance.

Re: [Dx4win] JT65A

2016-08-10 Thread N4QS, Dave Perry
Cort,

I use WSJT-X for JT65.  It is also available as a free download.  I setup
both WSJT-X and DX4WIN to run off of the same com port.  But I do not run
them at the same time.  When I want to work JT65, I click on Radio in DX4WIN
and click on Stop Radio, but I keep DX4WIN open.  This disconnects DX4WIN
from the radio and opens up the com port.

I then open WSJT-X and it automatically connects to the radio.  When I am
finished making a JT65 contact, the QSO is saved to the wsjt.log file.  I
then import the log file into DX4WIN.  Just go to File, Import/Export, make
sure ADIF is selected at the top, click on Import, go find the WSJT file in
your directory, double click on it, then when the window for Options for
Duplicates pops up, select Ignore Duplicate QSO.  This will ensure that you
only import any new JT65 QSOs into your DX4WIN log.

Since the signal reports from WSJT-X incorrectly go into the Notes for this
Call field, I then cut and paste to move the signal report information from
that field to the Notes for this QSO field.

When I am done working JT65, I close WSJT-X -- which frees up the com port.
I then click on Radio in DX4WIN and Start Radio to connect the radio back to
DX4WIN.  Again, not elegant but effective.  BTW, it is fun to work weak
signal JT65 on 6m as well as the other HF bands.  So you should give it a
try.

It would be great if Paul would someday start enhancing DX4WIN again.  I am
sure many of us would like to see an automatic interface between WSJT-X and
DX4WIN like there is for MMTTY.  We also need DX4WIN to support JT9 as a
mode.  I might also add that an automatic interface for Fldigi would be
great for the many other digital modes currently available.  But Paul has
been strangely inactive and incommunicado for five or six years now.

For the time being, this is a workaround that is cumbersome but pretty
foolproof.  Good luck.

73,

Dave, N4QS

I think that happened to me last year as well.  If memory serves me right, I
think all you do is go to Preferences, Screen and uncheck the Leave All

windows should move back into the center of the screens.  You can reposition
them the way that you want them and the go back and recheck the Leave All

I used to have a Steppir and it worked very well with DX4WIN.  You have to
go into the Control tab of preferences in DX4WIN and enable the Steppir
functions.  Then you have to go into the menu system of the SDA100 and setup
the controller so that it will track the radio.  It has been a while, but I
think you had to select Kenwood as the radio type.  Once you have the
controller setup correctly, then you have to enable Auto Track on the front
panel of the controller.  It should then retune as the radio changes
frequency every 25 khz.

functions.  Then you have to go into the menu system of the SDA100 and setup
the controller so that it will track the radio.  It has been a while, but I
think you had to select Kenwood as the radio type.  Once you have the
controller setup correctly, then you have to enable Auto Track on the front
panel of the controller.  It should then retune as the radio changes
frequency every 25 khz.

I have DX4WIN at home and SteppIR at work club so could not answer direct
with that combo.  As long as DX4WN is following your radio OK then you "Y"
the SDA-100 from the same serial line and it listens in and sets itself too.

The MMTTY program is not included as part of DX4WIN; you will need to
download and install the program separately. Visit the MMTTY website to
download the software at http://mmhamsoft.amateur-radio.ca/mmtty.
Anyone have a webpage that works?

Re: [Dx4win] RTTY & dx4win latest version

2016-01-22 Thread Dave Perry, N4QS
MMTTY can also make use of an external sound card such as Signalink USB or
any other sound card installed in your Windows software.  Open the MMTTY
window in DX4WIN, select Option tab in MMTTY, then Soundcard tab and select
the sound card that you would like to use.  As someone suggested earlier, if
you have an external soundcard for RTTY, it is good practice to ensure that
your computer soundcard is selected as the default in Windows--while the
appropriate external soundcard for RTTY is selected in MMTTY as the one it
will use.  This ensures that computer generated sounds and beeps do not get
sent to your radio.

Bernie, off the top of my head, the RTTY window was to operate RTTY with
external hardware devices that had a COM port interface, like a HAL or TNC.
The MMTTY window interfaces to the MMTTY software which makes use of your
computer's sound card.

[Dx4win] FW: JT44 mode issue!

2016-01-20 Thread Dave Perry, N4QS
Ernie,

I too would like to see some updates from Paul.  In the meantime, try this
to get JT44 contacts to update DXCC totals:

Go to Preferences, Awards, ensure that first tab - DXCC - is highlighted,
then in the lower left box, make sure that there is a check mark for JT44.
You can do the same for other modes and awards if desired.

This should ensure that JT44 counts for your DXCC Digital totals.

I hope this helps.

Dave, N4QS

Subject: [Dx4win] JT44 mode issue!

I still use DX4Win, despite the authors complete lack of interest for the
past five or so years.

But the problems I don't like with the program continue to add, and have
just about reached the limit of my patience.

For instance, there is no way to easily maintain existing name and QTH
information in the 'Notes for this QSO' field when there is a change in
either/both the callsign owners name or, much more commonly, his QTH. Not
life threatening but, for me, irritating. Yes, you can use the 'Notes for
this call' box, but that's messy, to say the least.

Then, I found out (as we all did) that DX4Win will not record a proper
signal report for JT type modes - so I make do with manually recording it in
the 'Notes for this QSO' box, and handwriting the report in the body of my
QSL card - I have a 'Comment' line on my card, so it doesn't look 'too' bad!

Then, I found out that I could not correctly record my JT9 QSOs - again a
workaround, I make do with calling them 'JT44' QSOs, for the sole purpose of
'housing' them within DX4Win. But the QSL card was now looking distinctly
messy before my 'manual intervention' corrects the mess. Yes, I could use an
external label printing program - but why should I have to?

Today, quite by accident (in fact, absolutely by accident) I found that, in
recording 'JT9' QSOs as 'JT44' QSOs, that a JT44 QSO has no effect (again, I
repeat, NO effect) on my DXCC totals - it does not update them. Unless
someone can point out the error of my ways - in which case I will gladly
stand corrected. So, I temporarily recorded all JT9 (JT44) QSOs as RTTY
QSOs, and found two band/mode fills. Remember, when you are a keen DXer,
small fish are sweet!

The bitterness/frustration that you can possibly note in my writing is
because a wonderful program, that I still fundamentally really like, is
becoming a bit of a laughing stock among my contemporary VK mates, all of
who have urged me to 'move on' to a more modern logger, or at least one that
is still supported. Because NONE of them have these sorts of problems.

In fact, it is wasn't for the sensational efforts of Jim AD1C over the past
five years and the helpful hints to all over a long period from Guy ON4AOI,
I fear DX4Win would have already fallen over - 'cause it is patently clear
that Paul does not give a damn.

So, two questions -

(1)  Can anyone verify that recording a QSO in 'JT44' mode doesn't update
DXCC totals - or, if it does, tell me where I went wrong, and

(2)  Does anyone actually know if Paul is still alive, and could ask him
what his intentions for DX4Win are. If it's to take no further effective
interest, just tell us. We could all move on. That's the easy bit.

Sorry for the 'cry' - but, by God, it's getting so frustrating.

Re: [Dx4win] Using 2Tone inside DX4WIN

Thanks Joe for your answer below.  How big of a deal would it be for Paul to
support the XMMT.ocx interface?

With 2Tone I can decode S0 to S1 sigs.  MMTTY needs S3 to S4 sigs to decode
accurately.

2-Tone emulates the XMMT.ocx interface in MMTTY.  DX4Win does not

 Lee,

 I would also like to use 2Tone with DX4WIN.  It already runs great 
 with N1MM.  I have copied the 2Tone.exe file into the MMTTY directory 
 within DX4WIN as well as the 2Tone.ini file - but did not overwrite 
 the MMTTY.ini per the 2Tone installation instructions.  I then tried 
 to replace the executable path within DX4WIN to the following:

 C:\program files\MMTTY\2Tone.exe

 The program tries to load within the MMTTY window of DX4WIN, but I get 
 an error message that 2Tone cannot run standalone and that it must run 
 with another logging program like N1MM.  (The 2Tone documentation does 
 say that it can run with other logging programs.)

 The installation instructions for 2Tone say to not modify the original 
 MMTTY.ini file and to leave it in the MMTTY directory because 2Tone 
 needs that file to run.  So I am wondering why DX4WIN cannot run 2Tone 
 as a replacement to MMTTY like N1MM?  I have also copied the XMMT.ocx 
 file and placed it in the DX4WIN directory.

 Are there any other changes that need to be made within the DX4WIN 
 logging program for it to work with 2Tone?  I tried emailing Paul with 
 DX4WIN and David with 2Tone, but neither one has responded so far.

 Can anyone else provide any assistance?  Thank you.

 It was remarkable to see the clarity of copy in 2Tone compared to
