SwissLog 4 Windows – Update To V5.101 – 25/12/2020

Version 5.101

NEW: Transceiver control: added support for Flex Radio CAT. This option allows you to handle any Flex Radio from 3xxx or 5xxx series. Also allows to connect remotely to any Flex Radio 3, 5 or 6 series. Please read the chapter Transceiver control in the Swisslog help!.

NEW: Transceiver toolbar: added a button to start/stop transceiver control

NEW: Added the MyQTH field in the default logbook queryNEW: SOTA hunters: added 2 new queries in the SOTA folder to be used in Logbook views: SOTA activator / SOTA chaser for CSV exporting. These queries are specially designed to export into CSV in the format required by the SOTA web site to submit your logs (either as chaser or activator). If you are activator, it’s mandatory you create a new MyQTH for every activation and set the summit reference you have activated in the My QTH Abbreviation name field. When you export using the SOTA activator query the CSV file will have the required format.

NEW: World map: added an option called “Update map automatically”. By default this option is enabled. When a QSO is saved or modified the world map is refreshed automatically to reflect changes in the DXCC / Grid statistic status. In older computers this operation may delay a lot the saving procedure, above all if the ALL option is selected in Gridquares. Disable this option if you experience long delays when saving QSOs and the world map function is open.

NEW: the WWFF list now includes IOTA reference. After entering a WWFF reference which is also IOTA, the IOTA field will be set automatically.

Improved: updated some components in the compiler used for Cw Skimmer, MultiPSK and PstRotator link. Also enhanced some parts of the code to improve performance and stability.

Improved: Import QSO:

HomeQTHs creation has been improved a lot to avoid creating unnecessary HomeQTH.

Merge QSO option will only be enabled if there are already QSOs in the Swisslog database.

ADIF import: deleted the option to check if ADIF file contains SUBMODE. Now Swisslog detects the ADIF version used in the file to handle the SUBMODE field automatically.

Corrected: Import QSO: checking the Merge QSO option in a blank database caused leaving blank Continent, DXCC, WPX, WAE, WAZ, ITU, Latitude, Longitude and Time Diff. Now this option will be disabled if there are no QSOs in the Swisslog database.

Corrected: ADIF export: Field ADIF_VER was not formatted correctly

Corrected: Swisslog freezes while downloading new country table / statistic databases in slow internet connections or if user took a while to reply the update message.

Corrected: CW Skimmer: Swisslog could not be closed if linked to CW Skimmer or remained in memory after closing being necessary a PC reboot.

Corrected: MultiPSK link: “Asynchronous socket error 10061” if activating the PSK button to start MultiPSK and connection was not established because MultiPSK was not running. Improved link.

Corrected: Transceiver control: if using Flex Radio 6xxx with auto start enabled and IP is wrong, Swisslog was extremely slow and not responsive.

Corrected: Statistics reports: Report names can’t contain commas otherwise Swisslog will be asking to select the report again at next startup. To avoid this, the comma key will be disabled in this field. Replaced comma by hyphen in all standard statistics reports including commas.

Corrected: Membership panel: added a timeout of 3 seconds for online queries to avoid excessive delay showing logos if a website is down after entering a callsign.

Corrected: PstRotator: the SteppIR controller only read frequency sent from Swisslog if using Rotor 2 (Rotor 1, 3 and 4 didn’t work).

Corrected: Make DX announcement window: changed order to send QTH locators. Instead of DX Loc<Prop Mode>My Grid now is My Loc<Prop Mode>Dx Grid. Although there is not an official standard defining formatted DX spots, this way is most commonly used in Dx spots.

Corrected: Rotor interface window: if rotor control was started, this option didn’t show azimuth or elevation until there were a beaming change

Corrected: now the function to update list of members of DIG will only import active members. Previous list included non active or silent key members which were not accepted for DIG awards. In order to set only active members to all your QSOs in your database I suggest to go to Tools > Update QSOs for for Callsign based statistics then UPDATE the INF_DIG. 

Corrected: DX announcements: RST added as comments was wrong. RST received from partner was included instead the RST sent by us (the RST we are receiving this station).

Corrected: World map and WinKeyer windows: if set as standalone and not stay on top, it always remained on top.

Corrected: World Map: Renamed Yugoslavia by Serbia

Corrected: WSJT-X UDP settings: added a validation in port fields to only allow values between 1 and 65535.

Corrected: Logbook views > Update County from Callbook databases: separator between State and County for US stations was set to underscore instead of dash. Example: HI_Hawaii instead of HI-Hawaii

Corrected: Tools > Set DME from DCE, DEE…: Parameter [INF_DVGE<]![DME] doesn’t have a default value.

Corrected: transceiver toolbar overlapped with QRZCQ button. Although user can move the toolbar manually, many users don’t do it. Now Swisslog corrects this defect

Corrected: QSO entry (Change layout in Previous and New QSOs tabs): callsign, comments, distance and QTH Locator fields were displayed in German.


Updated country table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Erik, EI4KF.

Thank you very much to Guy F6DKQ and Kuno DF1SD for the huge translation work in French/German respectively

Log4OM Released 24/12/2020

Release note – Version

[NEW] Added support for KML export from QSO grids.
[NEW] Added support for scheduled webpage/CSV generation with custom fields and optional FTP upload.
[NEW] Added more info on label routing page.
[NEW] User can now skip label print if counterpart requires SASE and/or contribution for the QSL.
[NEW] Added a new option (valid for ALL PROFILES) in Program Settings (top menu) to disable automatic backup on program shutdown. This option is NOT recommended if you don’t have an alternative backup method or specific needs.
[NEW] New section PERFORMANCE in Program Settings (top menu) with some options the user can disable to maximize program performances on heavy loaded systems.
[NEW] New benchmark tool in the PERFORMANCE menu to check how the system performs on some areas.

– avoid storing double type values in settings file to prevent any possible conflict with user regional settings
– translation updates
– JTDX 2.2.0-rc154 is built with modified Hamlib, based on Hamlib commit


as of December 7th, 2020

win64 build made under Qt 5.15.1
win32 build made under Qt 5.9.5

where Windows XP & Vista are not supported

JTDX.ini file changes:
deleted parameters DTCenter, TxDelay
added parameters DTCenterInt, TxDelayInt

Update JTDX 2.2.0 rc153 07-12-2020

JTDX 2.2.0 rc153 (07.12.20)

– patch: fill in the FT8 candidate list at valid DT range

– patch: pick up some dropped FT8 candidates at one- and two-thread decoding
– changed automatic thread number selection algorithm in FT8 decoder:
number of logical cores/number of decoder threads
1 / 1
2..4 / (number of logical cores)-1
5..8 / (number of logical cores)-2
>8 / (number of logical cores)-3
– FT8 candidate list thinning option is implemented for usage with slow CPUs to let user get acceptable Lag value, “CL” spinBox is added in mainwindow UI with tooltip
  Default value is 100% (no thinning). Candidate list thinning should be used together with “minimum” wideband FT8 decoder sensitivity setting.
  FT8 candudate list thinning being not applied to the QSO RX frequency. Factor 3.0 being used for thinning under frequency “Filter” option, for instance if CL spinBox set to 30% then thinning factor will be 90% (0.9) under frequency “Filter” option.
– implemented DT weighting and decoding pass weighting to FT8 candidate list thinning option, resulted in improved decoding efficiency.
  User can now select median DT value in DT spinBox of main window UI to get best FT8 decoder performance under candidate list thinning option, DT median default value is 0.0 sec.
  Median DT value of decoded signals depends on accuracy of system clock synchronization, in SDR setups it can also depend on RX audio delay. On overcrowded bands median DT value is usually close to average DT of decoded signals.
– FT8 decoder fast/medium/deep options are obsolete now and deleted, FT8 decoder running now in deep mode.
– multiple changes to FT8 signal synchronization in decoder: improved FT8 decoder efficiency on overcrowded bands
– a bit improved decoding of FT8 signals in ‘use subpass’ option
– simplified Hint decoder control
– FT8 mode: Hint group of decoders is always used, access to Hint button is blocked
– display estimated lag at decoding FT8 or FT4 wav files, estimation can have acceptable accuracy starting from 2nd even or 2nd odd decoded interval while playing pack of consecutive wav files
– patch: prevent crash with callsign index in chkfalse8.f90
– “Call higher than new calls priority callsigns” option is implemented to AutoSeq 4+, control is in AutoSeq tab of main window UI
– a bit faster displaytext processing
– fixed bug in CQ and ITU zone notifications
– added DX Call notification by the font color change to Other standard messages color
– show CQ and 73 messages marker char with CQ color for LoTW users
– prevent unneeded rig_close/open actions on Configuration settings change accepting
– option added to allow 160m crossband operation with South Korea, control is in Misc tab of main window UI
– track Monitor button state at Configuration settings changes and tuning
– forbid RRR message transmission in FT4 mode for compatibility with WSJT-X FT4 message protocol
– dark style correction in Configuration and widegraph UI
– better handling of large vertical size of the main UI window
– grid square for /MM /P /MM /A /M callsigns shall not be taken from CALL3.TXT file
– prevent saving WSPR files if “Save None” is selected
– fix 4m band default frequency at hound mode checking
– fix removing last audio .wav file on mode change
– added 70cm band FT8 frequency, frequency list reset in Configuration settings is needed to get it displayed in the list
– option for displaying frequency value in waterfall, “Freq” checkbox is added for control
– “Bars” checkbox is moved to controls widget of widegraph
– disable rig power on/off option if other than Hamlib CAT selected
– ignore UDP message client’s ‘TemporaryError’ message for starting JTDX on Mac Big Sur operating system
– allow to enter 19-char directional CQ message into macro edit line in Configuration settings

Ham Radio DeLuxe – Update To V6.7.0.323

Here is what is included in this release:

Bulk Callsign Lookup – this feature will allow you to select multiple QSOs in your log and perform the callsign lookup function on them.

You will be able to choose whether to fill only empty fields or fill all fields in the QSO.

If your enabled lookup sources have data to fill those fields, it will do so automatically.

This will be very helpful for those who import logs into HRD Logbook from other programs.

This feature will be perpetually available to customers whose Software Maintenance and Support expiration date is beyond the release date for this release.

Additionally, the following improvements are available to all Ham Radio Deluxe customers:
– CQ US Counties award tracking initial version
– ICOM IC-705 added
– FTDX101D/MP antenna switch added
– Google Earth Pro integrated to Logbook and Satellite Tracking
– QSL labeling fixed for Brother and Dymo label printers
– ILGRadio shortwave database again supported
– Outstanding items in Logbook Lookup Pane fixed
– Daylight savings time issue with Satellite Tracking fixed
– Fixed issue that prevents activation keys from being deactivated

Update JT-Alert 2.16.17 – 06-12-2020

Chang Log

Important note regarding FST4 mode: FST4 support is only partial.

 Accurate FST4 B4 checks and FST4 logging are fully supported.

 There is no Alerting for FST4 DXCCs, States, Grids, Prefixes, etc.

There is no reporting of FST4 activity in the Mode Activity window.

 Includes Callsign database file version 2020-12-06 (2020-Dec-06)

New Features:

– Callsigns Display Grid: New online for text messages indicator, a filled square, can be shown in the top-right corner of the Callsign display. See the “Windows -> Text Messages” section of the Settings window.

– Logging: New option to ‘Log USA District “DC” as State “MD”‘. This option is off by default. If enabled “DC” based stations will have their State converted from “DC” to “MD” and logged as “MD” regardless of the value returned from XML lookups and previous QSO lookups.

– Command Line Parameter: “/myid=” a user defined string that will appear in the status section of the JTAlert titlebar text. This parameter is not used internally by JTAlert except for the status display.

– WSJT-X Multicast UDP: Due to the unrelaibility in automatically determining which network interfaces are being used by WSJT-X for multicast UDP, JTAlert now has an explicit setting to indicate if WSJT-X multicast UDP is using a loopback interface. Ensure that the “Settings -> WSJT-X UDP Multicast on Loopback” menu is ticked. This applies for WSJT-X 2.3.0 -rc2 and later. The setting is ignored when using WSJT-X 2.2.2 and earlier.


– US State Alert: “Consider DC as MD” setting moved from the “Rebuild Alert Database” section to the “Alerts -> Wanted US States” section of the Settings window. This setting is now titled ‘Alert “DC” as “MD”‘. When this setting is enabled, all “DC” stations will alert as “MD”.

– Decodes Windows: Online for text messages indicator symbol changed from a filled circle to a square.


– FST4: Callsigns not being displayed in the Callsign display and decodes not being displayed in the Decodes History window..

–Decodes Window: Fatal error when changing the “Highlight excess DT” threshold value in the Settings when the Windows regional-settings utilizes a non-dot for the decimal separator.

-Text Messages Window: Incorrectly being show at JTAlert startup despite the “Receive text messages …” option being turned off.
