Hey Erika,

I'm not sure what software you are using, but if it's Digipan, check to
make sure the software is still on com1.
Click "configure" at the top of the Digipan screen, and a drop down menu
will appear, go down and click "Serial Port" and make sure it says "Com 1"
in the box.
For some reason, I have had Digipan defuault back to "None" when I have
unhooked things and then hooked them back up.

Hi All,

After reshuffling my household and setting up my station at a different
place I couldn't get it working again. Checked all the cables and the
rigblaster but I cant get the TX into transmit with the usual
configuration. It transmits when I switch the mike on. The only thing I
have
changed since the last time is that I installed an USB mouse. What might
be
wrong?
Maybe someone can come up with an idea .
Good weekend to all!

Re: Help

DL2AYL@...
 

Thanks for your answer,

1. I have just one port at my laptop
2. I can receive digi-signals
3. I can't transmit a PSK-signal, fact is also with the mike isn't going any
power out of the tx, just the red light goes on. The rigblaster shows also
the transmit light.
Seems the problem lies between the rigblaster and the tx.
Must put it on the backburner for a while, my son is moving, we'll have to
renovate his apartment. Hope to be back on air in time for the Rumble.

Erika -

I don't use a RigBlaster, so I can't check things here for
comparison, but here are some thoughts.

1. Can you receive PSK signals? If so, then at least the receive
audio lines are working.

2. When you trigger transmit using the mic, can you actually
transmit PSK tones? If so, then the transmit audio is working.

3. I think you are saying that you can't trigger the transmit mode
from the software. Does your RigBlaster have a TX indicator light,
one that lights or changes color when you transmit? If so, is it
working? That would tell you whether the problem is between the
computer and the RigBlaster, or between the RigBlaster and the
radio. (The RigBlaster power supply is plugged in, right?)

4. Your USB mouse shouldn't have changed things, if both the
mouse and the software are truly USB. But taking away the old
mouse could have triggered something if the old one was a serial
mouse. Did it use a serial port (9-pin D) or a keyboard/mouse port
(DIN)?

5. Do all of your serial ports show up in the Device Manager under
System Properties? (I presume you're running Windows here.) Do
any of them show conflicts or errors (denoted by yellow
exclamation points)?

6. You might try setting any of the other serial ports in your
software, just in case the serial port assignment changed.

Maybe some of this will help a little. Let us know what you find.

Hi Erika,

I had a problem involving the WAVE volume control in Windows. The WAVE would
be muted on computer startup. I would have to go in and un-check the mute
box whenever I started the computer. It fixed itself - and isn't THAT a
scary thought!

Good Luck,

In case you haven't seen them yet, Mexico has authorized special

The prefixes are 6J1, 6J2, and 6J3, with the 6J replacing the

Jay -

As the (unofficial) rules maven of the 070 club, I would like to
point out the following clause in the LONP rules:

"Operator-based Award - This is an operator-based award program and
as such, places no restrictions on the participants' respective
geographic locations at the time any QSOs submitted for this award
were made. QSOs made while portable or mobile in any way are all
valid for LONP, provided that the QSOs were made under the member's
call signs as listed in the 070 Club Alpha List and all other
conditions for the award are met."

The last sentence seems to say that the QSOs need to be made under
the member's callsign, and thus not under a club or other callsign.

Note that you can contact each 070 member only once. So if you
already have N3DQU in the log, any other contact with him can not be
counted for LONP purposes (no matter how much fun it is to talk to
Jay!).

Also note that there are some club stations in the 070 club. This is
one case where an individual may be a control operator for two QSOs
that will count for LONP, e.g., K3NJ and K3VOA, or K6DF and NJ6VT.

FYI,

THe new address for the PODXS.com home page is PODXS.com.

This works for most Folks, however if you are in VK land you must use WWW.podx.com.

So if you tell some one of the new address I believe we should send WWW.PODXS.COM so the rest of the world can find us.

If you have not gone to the new pages take a look we have a bunch of photos up there from the 1st Annual 070 Club meeting in Dayton.

Thera about 60 pages starting at www.podxs.com with all kinds of information there.

IF you see somtthing we do not have up there let me know and I will see if I can get that on the web.
