WARC Bands

Paula K7PAX #1739
 

Are the typical PSK frequencies used on the WARC bands those that are
suggested in DM780 - i.e. 10.140, 18.100, and 24.920? I just tested my
vertical and my LDG IT-100 tunes it at 1.5:1 SWR on all three bands.

Wish I could get it to do that on 160 meters!

Our church computer which we purchased back in August was Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.  the presentation software just upgraded and they recommended Windows 10 and would not guarantee the program would run correctly on window 7.  So, we took the plunge and I upgraded to windows 10 and it went pretty flawless.  I switched to Mac about 5 years ago or so and I was rather impressed with the upgrade that MS had this time.  I will give them credit for this one.  So far, things seem to be running pretty good.  The GUI looks the same just a few minor things changing as far as I can tell right now.  I just haven’t gotten into the system very much and doubt I will unless absolutely necessary.  The less I fool with it the better off I’ll be !!!

Fellow 070'rs,

I have several computers of various ages, whether they be towers or laptops, with varied operating systems.

They range from a very old decrepied  Compaq that has DOS as it operating system to my Dell "Man Cave Main Frame".

The Compaq is used to program my Motorola HT's, and I have a few with XP Pro for field day, logging, EZNec antenna design, etc.

My point? Through the courtesy and help of my IT Department, defined as 1 each, Mike, K6MKF, 070-412, just up the road from me a few hundred clicks, I've very painlessly upgraded to Windows 10, from Win 8.1. The upgrade was simple, and was done because I get tired of the pop-ups asking me to do it and felt it was the correct thing to do. All com ports stayed the same, all CAT functions in my RigExpert stayed the same. It all worked as advertised. 

As a stock holder of Microsoft since 1995, I'm proud to say that Microsoft finally got something right!

In no way can I advise anyone to do the upgrade, as computers vary greatly from ham shack to ham shack, but it worked flawlessly for me.

Ok, stupid needs some help here.  On the DM780 waterfall toolbar, there are band buttons that allow you to switch bands with a click.  Some time ago I stupidly deleted the 160m button.  Didn't think I would ever try to work top band.  Don't remember how I deleted it.  Now I can't figure out how to get it back!  Been through Simon's old DM780 manual and the current 6.2 from LLC but can't find the answer.  Strange thing is I have 160m button on the HRD rig control window.  I'm sure it is a display choice somewhere, but I sure can't find it in all the different menus.

Adam - you can do tiles if you want to, but they're entirely optional!

I've upgraded 4 machines to 10, and each one of them has been painless. 

Granted, YMMV, but I'm a proponent of WIN10.
