WSJT-X v1.1 r3496
- Great work Joe :-)
I've been away from radio for 2 or 3 weeks so it was a really pleasant surprise to see the latest WSJT-X program developments. v1.1 r3496 is up and running here and I'm playing around with the JT9+JT65 functions using split tx.
My FT817 isn't ideal as the receive bandwidth can't really cope with the whole 4kHz spread, but I am decoding some JT9 whilst tuned to the JT65 base frequency. The split tx does work well though and it means that if I do get a decode with either mode, I can transmit back without any problems. I am experimenting with the 'offsets' as suggested in the WSJT-X manual to give me better coverage of one mode at the expense of the other.
A few things I've noticed so far:
- I wasn't getting a signal strength indication is the waterfall graph until I changed from Cumulative to Current. Changing back to Cumulative did give correct signal strength indications.
- Using v1.1 with HRD 6.1 beta (before I started using 'split') seemed to make everything run very slowly, but then Windows XP was updating in the background, so this might have been the issue.
- When selecting Cat control, sometimes the drop down list isn't populated, but the list does appear if you select the drop down a second time. Also, having selected 120 Yaesu FT-817, sometimes when I go back to the Setup > Configuration > Station screen I find that another Yaesu radio is set (can't remember which one now) although it doesn't seem to affect the operation of the FT-817.
Keep up the good work Joe!
