      Random Hour Report for 9/25/2010
      Email Random Hour Reports to dhassall@...
      I received 5 reports this week. I am now answering the receipt
      of each report. If you do not get a "thank you" email back,
      I didn't get your report for some Reason. So, please resend it.
      I am trying to get the compiled report on the WSJT and the
      Digital On Six websites by late Tuesday night. So everyone
      should find it online by Wednesday of each week.

        Hi all,

        WSPR 2.1 r2194 has been posted at:

        http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSPR2.10_r2194.EXE

        Instead of listing the essential changes since r2179, I direct you to
        "WSPR 2.1: Supplement to User’s Guide" posted online at

        http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSPR_2.1_Supplement.pdf

        Briefly stated, the new version has complete facilities for Tx and Rx
        image suppression. I measure the unwanted sidebands more than 60 dB
        down, with my SoftRock.

        As far as I know, I have now corrected all reported bugs. If not,
        please let me know! As always, I will appreciate all bug reports and
        suggestions.

            No, I did not forget.

            So far, beta testing of WSPR 2.1 has been limited to the Windows
            versions because I have not implemented a mechanism for Linux versions
            to set the Si570 oscillator frequency and do T/R switching, over the USB
            interface. I hope to get to these things soon.

                HI all,
                installed new WSPR version, but always missed the "Rig number" of Radio
                setup on
                "Station parameters"; Every time I restart, Radio parameters will lost
                (I see always: 214 Kenwood TS-2000)
                and I must again input parameters of my IC-746 PRO radio.... Always I
                use "Save User parameters" option.
                73 de Gius, IT9VDQ

                  Just installed r2194 and have noticed something strange. My RX noise is showing at +21dB. I can't seem to reduce it down to anywhere near 0dB.
                  The previous version i was running (2.0 r1714) was fine in this respect. I have checked the settings and they are all as they should be. The input level I am using is OK for other digimode programs such as DM780 (the input level shows as 15%). I am using an external USB soundcard and running through the mic input (which as I say, was fine on v2.0), and the input level is 7 (using the Vista mic/line in properties window). I have tried reducing the level down to 3, but WSPR still shows +14 dB. I tried using the line input instead of the mic and had the same results. 
                   
                   I'm not sure what has changed in this version regarding sound input, but something has.
                   
                  Out of interest I just installed r1714 and everything is running as it should be and I have a nice 0dB rx noise level and am receiving stations that were not showing on 2194.
                   
                  Very strange, but chances are it is operator error  .
                   
                  O/S: Vista 32bit with Creative Live 24 bit USB soundcard.
