David Westbrook
 

Laurie -- I just noticed I have the same issue ...
I tried starting jt-alert before DXK, and starting DXK before Jt-alert, in case the connection between the two was lost, but still isn't logging.

Otherwise, everything looks great! Yesterday was the first time i really got to sit and play w/the new version, and it's all that I expected from the reflector traffic .. the band activity monitoring and the lotw/eqsl labels are great features ...
I also did some testing of the WAS DXK log scanning, and seems solid! Saves lots of clicking & counting

I had a few to read from JT65-log and type back into DX-Keeper.

Today I reverted to 1.4 without any config changes and it's logging again.

In 1.5, I've selected:
Logging: Enabled; JT65; DXLab:DxKeeper-logfile
Callsign DtBASES: dxlAB DX Lab Suite

Hi.
Apologies for the delay, time difference & a busy morning is my only explanation.

I have checked CPU and RAM usage in several situations. I first of all shut down everything I could with the exception of AVG free (latest 2012 version) and got the following results:-

HRD alone CPU 0% RAM 1.78GB
HRD + JT65-HF CPU 1% RAM 1.79GB
HRD + JT65-HF+ Alert 1.5.0 CPU 1% RAM 1.80GB
HRD+ JT65-HF + Alert 1.5.0 During decode of 3 messages CPU 11% RAM 1.85GB

For interest HRD + DM780 with Superbrowser decoding 10 signals CPU 3% RAM 1.88GB

My old Dell given to me by my son in law and in use up to last summer used to struggle to run HRD + DM780 and always ran at 85 - 99% CPU usage.
I have not tried that with JT65-HF, it was a Pentium 4 about 1.8GHz.

Now the crunch, I put this PC together last year and the spec is:-
CPU Intel i7 920 2.67GHz.
Memory 6GB.
3 x 2Tb Hitachi SATA Drives.
I can't remember the Video card but it's based on an ATI Radeon HD5700.
Operating system Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I hope at least the differences in running the different programs is interesting.

73,
John G4GCL

Hi Tony,

Glad HRD logging is working for you.

There is an option for JT-Alert to be on-top of all other windows. I just checked my code, and I had disabled it during some testing I was doing for the docking option. It will be available again in the next release.

JT-Alert does save all the additional data visible on the JT65-HF Log Contact window. The Notes are getting stored in the Notes field of the HRD log. I just checked and can confirm the data is there. Interesting, in HRD, when modifying a QSO, which provides a multi-tab interface to all the data fields of the QSO, the Notes field is not shown. However, if you change the layout of the QSOs Grid display adding the Notes field, the Notes data is visible. HRD also has a Comment field which is always visible when in the Modify QSO view (just above the tabs).

Unless I get any objections, I will be changing the saving of the JT65-HF Notes data to the HRD Comments field in the next release.

Just a couple of suggestions for a future version :-

1.  It would be nice to have an option for having JT-Alert “always on top” (JT65-HF fills my netbook’s small screen, so it would be convenient to have the option of "permanently" overlaying it with JT-Alert).

2.  Would it be possible to have the contents of the “notes” field in JT65-HF's "Log QSO" transferred by JT-Alert to the HRD log along with the other fields transferred?

"Cleaner validator" is part of Comodo System Cleaner, and it had a problem with consuming too much CPU...but that was fixed with newer updates.

System Idle being high is a GOOD thing.  It is a placeholder process designed to keep the CPUs ready without actually consuming CPU time. The higher it is, the less your CPUs are actually working.

To determine the resources  individual processes are utilizing, run task manager and look at the individual processes in the processes tab.  If you click on the ‘CPU Column Header’ 2 times (not double click) it will sort from highest CPU process to lowest.  Likewise for the Memory column.  This way you can find out what is taking up so much processor and memory.

My biggest killer of CPU is usually HRD, which is normally around 50%.  I have experimented with the polling interval, for the radio, on HRD, thinking that might bring down the CPU usage, but it made no difference at all.

 

FWIW, on my machine, JT65-HF runs about 5% CPU until it hits the decode (which normally lasts for less than 1 second) at which time it spikes at around 30%.  JT-Alert hits 1% CPU every couple of seconds.  These two apps are very tame on my machine.

Good evening Laurie,
I finally realized what you ment when you refered to the "Log Contact window (big Daaaaa on my part). However it already has a backslash at the end of it. (by the way for some reason I not showing your picture you sent .. Just a white square with a red X in the corner.

Any way to make a long story short .. In my searching thru the file system this nite I discovered that I have TWO copies of JT65-HF on my computer both version 141. I have removed both of them and will reload ONE tommorrow. Also will reload JT-Alert 150.

Seeya when thats done and tested. Thanks for your patience with me.

Hi Ray,

Not getting a popup window, either a "log Success" or "Log Failure"
indicates that JT-Alert is not detecting the change in the JT65-HF log
which is most likely caused by a recently discovered bug in JT-Alert.
It is caused by a missing backslash from the path of the JT65-HF "Log
Contact" window (see attached image)


To fix...

1. manually type a backslash "&#92;" after the path. If you use the browse
button, the slash is missing, you must type it in yourself.
2. shutdown JT65-HF.
3. shutdown JT-Alert if running.
4. start JT65-HF
5. start JT-Alert

Logging will now work. The above steps only need to be done once.
This bug will be fixed in the next release.

Let me know if this works or not for you.

Hi de Laurie and Scott also

Thanks for the reply to my trouble with loginng records to HRD logger.

AS was suggested I checked out what method I was (am) using. It is the HRD V5 (access).

I have set the file path in JT-Alert to C:&#92;Users&#92;......HRD Logbook&#92;HRD My Logbook.mdb as scott said his was set.

I then wrote a file to it via HRD Logbook and it recorded it ok ..
atleast the "My logbook.mdb" file showed a change in the last time it was written to which matched the time i sent it.

I can also write a record to the JT65 log using the JT65 log button.

However I cannot get JT-Alert to write a record to HRD Log.

I have never gotten a Popup window.

Also the LotW upload in the HRD Logger screen is always Grayed out.
Is the normal?

When I installed HRD I did-not install it in the C: drive. I installed it in another drive. I has worked ok and still dose .. except for the problem.

Just remembered I have never been able to upload to LotW fro HRD .. I have ben using an upload utility by WD5AEA Which worked oK.

Let me know if yuo need more info. Thanks again for your Help.

Hi Ray,

You should get a popup window after logging, advising either success or
failure. If you are not getting any popup, then it sounds like you don't
have the correct path set for the Log file, or DSN if using MSSQL or MySQL.

You are correct, JT-Alert writes an entry to the HRD Log File (MS Access
.mdb file) or the HRD ODBC Database connection (if using MSSQL or
MySQL). If you are unclear on which method you are using you will need
to read the "HRD Logbook.pdf" that gets installed in the HRDV5 program
directory. Someone must have set your log up initially, most likely
using the standard MS Access .mdb file.

You need to determine what sort of log type your using and then either
set the file path under the "HRD V5 (Access)" section of the JT-Alert
config or set the appropriate ODBC DSN under the "HRD V5 (ODBC DSN)"
section of the JT-Alert config.

The log file of "plot log mapper.adi" is not correct, the extension
should be .mdb, the name will be what ever was used when initially
setting up you HRD log.

I'm hoping someone with HRD experience jumps in here to offer you some
more HRD instruction.

Let us know how you go

If not then what can I expect it to do? (maybe its working and I don'd know it.

OK John,

Not getting a "success" or "fail" popup usually means that JT-Alert didn't try and log anything because it didn't detect a change in the JT65-HF log file. When you added the backslash to the JT65-HF log path did you stop and start JT65-HF and JT-Alert as mentioned in the instructions? If so, then there is most likely something else causing the problem.

I need to have a look at the session file JT-Alert creates. Since your on XP, have a look at the following path
C:&#92;Documents and Settings&#92;<UserName>&#92;Local Settings&#92;Application Data&#92;Ham-Apps&#92;JT-Alert&#92;<CallSign>&#92;sessions&#92;
substituting your Windows username and the Callsign used with JT-Alert. In that directory will be several files.

First, run JT-Alert and attempt to log a QSO so that the failure gets recorded in the session file, stop JT-Alert and then email me the sessions.txt file from the above directory.

Thunderbird checking 4 email accounts every minute, HRD for rig control,
JT-65HF + JT-Alert 1.5.0 plus of course anti virus etc
CPU usage is running at below 3% except when decoding when it can peak
at 14%. Memory usage is about 2.3Gb (6Gb fitted).

I really haven't noticed any difference but I think it would take a lot
to slow this thing down!

73, John G4GCL

Good to hear David,

Reviewing my code yesterday, there is still one area where I need to
code a "Linux/Wine" fix, so there is still potential for a JT65-HF
lockup/crash.

Hi Ray,

Not getting a popup window, either a "log Success" or "Log Failure" indicates that JT-Alert is not detecting the change in the JT65-HF log which is most likely caused by a recently discovered bug in JT-Alert.
It is caused by a missing backslash from the path of the JT65-HF "Log Contact" window (see attached image)


To fix...
  1. manually type a backslash "\" after the path. If you use the browse button, the slash is missing, you must type it in yourself.
  2. shutdown JT65-HF.
  3. shutdown JT-Alert if running.
  4. start JT65-HF
  5. start JT-Alert
Logging will now work. The above steps only need to be done once.
This bug will be fixed in the next release.

Let me know if this works or not for you.

Hi de Laurie and Scott also

Thanks for the reply to my trouble with loginng records to HRD logger.

AS was suggested I checked out what method I was (am) using. It is the HRD V5 (access).

I have set the file path in JT-Alert to C:\Users\......HRD Logbook\HRD My Logbook.mdb as scott said his was set.

I then wrote a file to it via HRD Logbook and it recorded it ok ..
atleast the "My logbook.mdb" file showed a change in the last time it was written to which matched the time i sent it.

I can also write a record to the JT65 log using the JT65 log button.

However I cannot get JT-Alert to write a record to HRD Log.

I have never gotten a Popup window. 

Also the LotW upload in the HRD Logger screen is always Grayed out.
Is the normal?

When I installed HRD I did-not install it in the C: drive. I installed it in another drive. I has worked ok and still dose .. except for the problem.

Just remembered I have never been able to upload to LotW fro HRD .. I have ben using an upload utility by WD5AEA Which worked oK.

Let me know if yuo need more info. Thanks again for your Help.

Hi Ray,

You should get a popup window after logging, advising either success or 
failure. If you are not getting any popup, then it sounds like you don't 
have the correct path set for the Log file, or DSN if using MSSQL or MySQL.

You are correct, JT-Alert writes an entry to the HRD Log File (MS Access 
.mdb file) or the HRD ODBC Database connection (if using MSSQL or 
MySQL). If you are unclear on which method you are using you will need 
to read the "HRD Logbook.pdf" that gets installed in the HRDV5 program 
directory. Someone must have set your log up initially, most likely 
using the standard MS Access .mdb file.

You need to determine what sort of log type your using and then either 
set the file path under the "HRD V5 (Access)" section of the JT-Alert 
config or set the appropriate ODBC DSN under the "HRD V5 (ODBC DSN)" 
section of the JT-Alert config.

The log file of "plot log mapper.adi" is not correct, the extension 
should be .mdb, the name will be what ever was used when initially 
setting up you HRD log.

I'm hoping someone with HRD experience jumps in here to offer you some 
more HRD instruction.

Let us know how you go

Hi all,

I have tryed most of the afternoon to get JT-Alert to work with HRD logger .. to no avail. I don't even get any nasty grams.
I have done the \ thing in JT65 as suggested.
Perhaps I don't understand it's purpose .. I am expecting it to write a record to the HRD logger file. Is that what it is suppose to do?
If not then what can I expect it to do? (maybe its working and I don'd know it.

I'm running HRD Ver. 5 2893 ; win7 home premiun 64Bit ; JT65 v.1.0.7

I'm also not sure about the file NAME and LOCATION of the HRD log file.I have been using "plot log mapper.adi" ... Is that correct?

Thanks for any and all help. Ray W7RJC

Hi Jerry,

No, this wont be a functional change, only a user selectable option (off by default). B4 alerting will still be "band aware".

This is going to be an option correct and not a full functional change to how B4's are handled?  

If I've worked John WA3CAS on 20m, but now operating on 40m and see him calling CQ I only want to see him as B4 if I've worked him on 40m. Unless it is flagged or displayed in such a way that tells me I've worked him on another band but not the band I'm currently tuned to.  

I know some ops take issue with answering their CQ if they've already been worked. I'm not 100% sure of what drives this behavior, but do respect their decisions.  But I wouldn't think this would apply to a band not worked before.

Hi Laurie,

That's exactly what I want to see happen. I want to see "B4" appear next to the call no matter what band I worked him on. I swear that feature was already available in v1.4.1. For me, it would be a welcomed addition to v1.5.

Thanks for all your hard work.
