locked Re: Double clicking running slow with HRD

Warren Greenberg
 

 I did what Laurie asked and there was a slight improvement.
 The test config was the Flex3000 was set on com11, HRD rig control set to com12, the Flex3000 & HRD was setup as PowerSDR as the radio type. WSJT had its radio set to HRD, and JTAlert set to HRD ver 6. I took DDUTIL out of the picture completely with this setup. The com port pairs were built in VSP Manager.
 After I did the above config, I did a system shutdown and power up. I then powered up the flex & stsrted tge flex in software, then started HRD and then WSJT and then JTalert in that order.
 When I double clicked on a call in WSJT it still took several seconds for the PTT to kick in, it appears a little quicker that ehen DDUTIL was involved.
 When I wrnt back to my setup with Logic9 running with DDUTIL (HRD not active) the PTT appears to be instiantanious. 
 So I suspect something in the HRD rig control settings.

Sorry .. don't agree ... not to start a flame here, but most every ham application triggers false warnings due to the fact it is used by a small subset of overall WIndows users.

 

Microsoft's 'security' essentials is more likely to trigger false warnings than any third-party program, and frankly, offers the bare minimum in security.

 

I've been using AVG Internet Security for years, and have not had the issues people have with M$ or Norton.

David,

Its not clear to me what you mean by "manually toggle the LOTW flag". What are you trying to achieve?

If a JTAlert user has the Callsigns database installed, they will get displays of your Callsign with the LoTW flag visible unless, they have turned off the display of the flag, in which case there is nothing that you can do.

Bob,

The JTAlert Ignore Callsign feature has no influence over what is displayed within WSJT-X. It only applies to Callsigns displayed or not within JTAlert. As far as I am aware WSJT-X doesn't provide an Ignore Callsign function.

Colin,

Sounds very much like the TCP ports JTAlert uses for the Band Activity Display (also Spotting and Text messages) are being blocked at your firewall. You can test this from within JTAlert. Open the Settings to the "Web Services -> TCPIP Network Ports" section and test the ports for connectivity. If one port is blocked you can select an alternate port for each of the services".

Thanks Mike - tried renaming the config file and restarting. New config generated but problems still there. Looked at my  Bitdefender firewall and it looked ok. Switched it off anyway, and everything working. Switched it back on bit by bit (Protection against fraud etc) until all back on. Everything still working so I'm at a loss as to why Bitdefender broke JTAlert in the first place.

You don't say how you are checking hamspots but it's working for me on 2.10.14 so 2.10.14 is not broken.  Same goes for the band status as it is working fine too.

So I suspect you have either a firewall problem or a corrupt configuration.  Firewall problem less likely unless you changed something.

Try renaming the config.sqlite file in
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\HamApps\[callsign]\config\JTAlertX

And start with a fresh config to see if that fixes things.

If you have never used REVO uninstaller at all then the first trial
period is free.   I used it to remove Norton and several other
problematic programs.   After it removes the base program it gives you a
chance to scan in the advanced mode and then it deletes all of the
hidden registry keys and left over items.     I bought it I was so
impressed.

I use  WebRoot myself and I know there are a few others that work just fine.

Nelson,

There are no Trojans within the JTAlert software. The only malicious
software here is Norton, incorrectly flagging HamApps.com as unsafe
based on a false positive from their software. Norton is blocking the
download because it has identified a Trojan, not a named true threat,
but a "Generic" threat. They don't identify a true threat.

I abandoned using Norton in a very large National Corporate
environment years ago, as it created more troubles than it solved.
Trying to uninstall Norton tends to be more problematic than trying to
remove a true virus infection and the only reliable way we found to
uninstall was a format followed by an OS and Application install.
Putting it bluntly, IMHO, Norton is a POS!

To make Norton happy, HamApps_JTAlert_2.10.13_Setup.exehas been removed.

Another reason to toss any and all security software other than what is part of the OS itself as it is most often more trouble that it is worth. Instead, have frequent image backups etc.  Norton and McAffee are the worst and they charge for the privilege!

 My configuration is a HP 8200 elite SFF with 16 gig running Windows 10 pro 64 bit.
 My Flex3000 id's a PowerSDR, the flex talks to DDUTIL which connects to WSJT (WSJT is set for TS480). My logging program (Logic9) also talks thru DDUTIL. And when I have HRD running it runs thru DDUTIL. When I run. HRD & shut down Logic9 and when I run Logic9 I have HRD shut down.
 I gave WSJT'S radio configured as HRD & JTalert pointing to HRD V6.
 Any idea's.

Warren,

When you say a 2 -4 second delay, I assume you mean a delay before your Rig activates PTT. If that is the case, then the likely cause is a delay somewhere in the WSJT-X -> DDUTIL -> HRD -> Rig chain.

Sorry, I can't offer any authoritative advice regarding this setup, except to suggest you look at DDUTIL as I seem to recall some message on anther forum about DDUTIL latency (but I could be wrong). Why not take DDUTIL out of the picture while testing and have WSJT-X control HRD directly.

Norton is notorious for false positives.

"Trojan.Gen.2" means "This signature detects unclassified Trojan activity on the compromised computer." Translation: the observed behavior might be that of a Trojan.

This article cites two different online anti-malware checkers you can use to confirm that the report from Norton is erroneous:
