Gridtracker Update to V1.21.0613(Hotfix!) – 13/06/2021

Hotfix v1.21.0613

https://gridtracker.org/downloads/

 

A hotfix release v1.21.0613 was released tonight to address an issue where when launching GridTracker and other logging programs that all try to sync their LoTW logs at the same time, the LoTW download abuse mechanism is triggered causing errors.

This is a temporary fix where we’ve disabled automatic downloading of LoTW logs at start-up. LoTW logs can still be downloaded by clicking the LoTW icon in the control panel. The long term fix is in the works and should also speed up the time it takes to pull down LoTW logs.

Release: WSJT-X 2.4.0 May 24, 2021

Since the release candidates documented below this final release includes the following enhancements and defect repairs.

– On MS Windows WSJT-X now ships with a DLL version of the Hamlib library, specifically Hamlib version 4.2. This should allow Hamlib bug fixes to resolved by the user replacing the DLL with an updated version. – Repair a defect with own call decode highlighting when callsigns with a common root are decoded.

– Q65 message averaging correctly disabled as be menu option. – Repair a regression with missing timestamps in AlL.TXT for the MSK144 mode.

– Repair a defect in the selection of working frequencies matching the current band and mode combination. – WSPR band hopping mode now generates a tune up tone for bands where it is scheduled to transmit. – Repair a long standing defect per band tune and Tx power level memories.

– More flexibility for inputting calls into the DX Call field, leading and trailing white space characters are allowed but ignored.

GridTracker Update To v1.21.0520 – 20/05/2021

GridTracker v1.21.0520 – An Amateur Radio Companion
https://gridtracker.org/downloads/

General Information
This is our May 2021 general release including several bug fixes including one major one
and a few new features and updates.
Due to the high volume of GridTracker users that were polling for spot data on the PSK
Reporter servers, GridTracker was blocked from accessing data. The team worked with
the operators of PSK Reporter to make changes to GridTracker to reduce the load we
impose on their system and this version includes those changes. To restore PSK Reporter
spots users need to upgrade to this version of GridTracker.

Program Update
[Bug Fixes]
• Fix PSK Reporter poll time to 5min, add TX idle timeout and time skew to reduce
the load GridTracker makes on the PSK Reporter server
• Fix SVG icons not rendering in certain Windows 10 installs
• Fix eQSL ADIF Support
• Fix clearing of logs after installing a new version of GridTracker
• Fix highlighting whole country of Somalia on map

Updat HRD V 6.7.0.357 – 02/05/2021

This release focuses on several important things in two areas – label printing and Rig Control.

Here is included in this release:

Label Printing

Work was done for both QSL and address labels. It is true that this has been a challenging item for many years. What we found was that it appears that Windows had been resizing the labels. Because of this, the margins we loaded were being modified in some cases.

We sorted out the problem and made some major changes that enabled us to move the label definitions to an external file. Now they can be updated without building a software release. The “Reset Labels” function pulls down the latest definitions.

Finally, all Avery label types were tested – both Letter and A4 sizes. All the common Brother and Dymo label types were tested. We added support for the Brother P-touch label maker (18mm, 24mm, and 36mm). All the labels we tested look fantastic out-of-the-box. It should no longer be necessary to tinker with the dimensions to get great labels to print.

We have one open item with labels. When labels are printed that have more QSOs than will fit on a single label for a given call, the labels over-flow the label. We will tend this in the next release.

With these issues resolved, we expect to add the ability to print labels in “ARRL Outgoing Bureau order.” This will enable the operator to select many QSOs to print labels for and have them sorted before printing so that it is easy to send them to the bureau. We will also return the ability to print the QSO details right on your QSL card.

FTDX101D/MP

The changes rename the radio to “FTDX-101D-MP. This resolves the problem that prevented layouts from being saved. The RF power slider goes to 100 watts on the D model and 200 watts on the MP model. But the commands for the D and MP are identically the same. After installing this release, the previous rig connection will display as “unknown”. Simply remove and recreate the radio connection to the “FTDX-101D-MP”. We believe this also resolves the “tracking” issues that some operators had reported.

FTDX10

Initial support for the Yaesu FTDX10 is included in this release, however it has not been extensively tested. We will look for feedback on our community forums site.
