RE: [wsjtgroup] WSJT-X and System Clock (WinXP)
Are you having other issues as well?
Software lockups or programs not running correctly when you’re on the air?
My first guess is RF getting into your computer, and it will / can cause all kinds of strange things to happen
I've used WSJT-X (latest version as of today), mode JT9-1 on several HF bands the last few days with success. It appears to be a nice mode and works well. However, I find that after a few transmissions (whether it is a CQ or during an exchange) my system clock shifts. This does not happen while I am just receiving, nor does it happen during WSJT exchanges (on any of the standard WSJT modes used on HF and VHF), nor does it happen with WSPR or WSPR-X. I also use Fldigi, and have no such clock problem there. Indeed, NO other application I use for anything seems to mess with the clock, except WSJT-X when I am transmitting. It slows my clock down by about one second per minute or two of transmitting. Of course, after a few transmissions, my clock is off far enough that I am out of sync and start losing signals.
Any thoughts about this?
I'm running WinXP Pro SP3.
