Re: Firecracker - Win 10 - PSK software ?
your note about
W10 playing nice...
My shack computer is using a W10 OS(6 months new) and have been trying a few different PSK/logging programs. For Firecracker, I used WinWabler and suite. I have used Fldigi, but I like the ability to use F keys on the keyboard. I spent a hour or so trying N1MM+, too. I need to spend more time with it...
What are "you all" using?
Mostly, I have used Fldigi with a Raspberry Pi and VNC'd to the RPi from my laptop using a very nice comfortable "Easy Boy"...
I have "told" W10, don't sent "reports" to Microsoft. I have not added virus checkers (using "stock"). I use an external USB sound card and as long as I don't run YouTube while PSK'ing, I am OK. I did have to go and re-set the audio "pointers" at the beginning...
I would like to see N1MM+, N3FJP's software, and DXLab (WinWarbler) for Linux. I am very happy I removed W10 from my laptop and added Linux Mint (2+ years ago) and I did get a family discount on W10 for the shack computer. For the most part, LoTW is my LOG, I upload and forget... I do "try" to rename .adi files and keep them.
Anyway, Firecracker logs are uploaded to LoTW and contest web. I only got to work about 3 hours consecutively. Better planning as I needed to get up early for Church - did - didn't even park - went elsewhere, later (don't ask).

Superior Dick! Put me down for DM85, DM87 and DM53. Sure you have to wait until October? - hi hi! On second thought, wait until October. Maybe by then I'll have this new Win 10 computer figured out and playing nice with the radio. Firecracker was a bust with them not cooperating with each other. Gave up after only making 4 Qs and a gazillion "sending report to Microsoft" messages. Best to Kathy...travel safe...Happy 4th!
