Seeing (and decoding) one other signal on 40 meters tonight (0028Z).  Anybody else up for a quick QSO to help my 366?

As of now, I’m projected to be just out of the ‘Hurricane Strength’ storm – by 2 MPH. We’ll see how that shapes up over the next couple days. I think we'll be okay, but the antennas may not do so well.

I hope everyone stays safe and that Irma blow some good propagation this way!

Hi gang,
Well done, Art was surprised and happified to receive all you QSL and get well cards.
He still has not had the bypass surgery and they postponed it again. This time because of Hurricane Irma. He was told maybe Tuesday or Wednesday. Poor guy he has been there about 10 days already.
My xyl and I will evacuate to a hotel on the mainland tomorrow. Evacuation is not mandatory ( yet ) but smart money says get out now. I hope my station survives.
I will post a report here after she passes next week or whenever I get an opportunity.

Wednesday night around 06:00 (Thurs Morning) there was a great band opening from NV to Japan on 20m.  Made around 20 FT8 contacts in 45 minutes before it died.  Last Night I finally found a DE contact on 40m that I'd been needing for months now.

Is anyone typically on around 06:00UTC on PSK these days?  I haven't checked for a while because the waterfall was always empty at my location the past few months.  Seems most of the activity is FT8 and JT variants at that time of day.

Thanks Mike and to all that responded.  Good information here.

As it turns out I do have an upgrade path and it seems (so far) to have solved the problem.

Love this list!

Funny that you mention that. I just opened a problem ticket with HRD about DM780 freezing. Turned out it was my computer, not DM780. I was using explorer for my PSK tracker but had recently changed to Mozilla, and it is a resource hog! 

My computer has 4 GB ram and just that little bit was enough to cause DM780 to freeze, couldn't do call search and waterfall was jumpy. So check your running devices and programs. It fixed my issue by using chrome, and making sure all the extra background programs were off. Could be unless you have something else going on.

Hello All,

I’ve been using HRD for years now and I’m happy with the features. I’m running version 6.4.0.410 which I believe is the last free version on Windows 8.1.

The problem is that lately it has been prone to freezing after running a while. Since I usually leave my radio on for PSK Reporter captures, this is becoming a problem.

Is anybody else experiencing this?

I went on vacation last month to see the eclipse in Wyoming and I ran Fldidgi and it ran error free for three weeks. I’m lucky if HRD_DM780 will run for three days.

Flidgi is a non-starter for me for operating because the center frequency command will not set to [freq] + 1500 Hz which is where my K3’s filters are centered. It is stuck on [freq] + 1000 Hz - no bueno.

I’m thinking of biting the bullet and paying for the new version of HRD+DM780, but I’m wondering if anybody else is experiencing freezes with the latest version.

TIA,

Re: CME Blues

Matthew King - AK4MK
 

The A index today is *38*, and the K index is *8*, so the "decade class" CME that erupted a day or two ago has definitely made it here now!

Yesterday I was unable to decode many signals - they looked "distorted" and sure enough, they would not decode.

I hope that it's not affecting the NWS/NHC efforts surrounding Irma. 

Speaking of Irma, they're predicting that it's still going to be Tropical Storm strength when it makes it to my neck of the woods in West Central Georgia, so I'm beginning preparations to be without power for a few days, potentially.  Working on the generator, getting gasoline, and readying the chainsaw.  Hurricane Opal was our last "real" brush with tropical weather, and that was 22 years ago. We actually had 70 mph winds at the Columbus, GA airport then. That's STRONG for these parts, and that's what they seem to be forecasting as a very real possibility for this area now.  

If I'm not heard from for a few days next week, now you know why! :-O

Used to work aurora a bit on 10m and would  point beam Northward.  SSB signals  came through as I would describe as "underwater", but the voice quality was that of those robots on Battlestar Galactica.   There were predictions of aurora activity this week.
 
But who knows with all the hurricanes, forest fires and earthquakes going on ... things are getting weird ?

Eric-

If you are a registered user of HRD v6.X , you can upgrade to 6.4.0 at no charge.  You only have to pay if you want the 1 year support option.    See https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/ham-radio-deluxe-news-ham-radio-deluxe-version-6-4-0-659-released.572993/#post-4315047  

That didn't sound right to me so I called and the operator switched me to Michael himself.  He said it was so and I proceeded to download and upgraded without renewing the support option.  No charge.  I'm running Win7 and upgraded from 6.3 to 6.4.0.780 a few months ago with no problems.  Works fine for me.

Hi Folks,

 

First, Full Disclosure:   I sometimes volunteer my efforts as part of the HRD Beta Test Team, and I’m just reporting facts, I’m not trying to defend the product or sell it.

 

The various ‘last free versions’ of HRD that are out there eventually age as the Windows operating system is updated.  HRD is reasonably closely integrated with Windows and uses a lot of system calls and services.   As Windows is updated, these services and calls sometimes change.

 

A few months ago, we tested a number of Beta releases developed to correct some memory leaks in the software that were causing lockups.  These problems were found and corrected. 

 

I’ve been running the current production version, v6.4.0.780, for a while now with no performance issues.

 

I’ve been an HRD user since the early days with Simon, and an HRD customer since they’ve been a commercial concern – through some rough sledding and now into much better times.   HRD runs the station here at K6MKF.

 

Capitalism in action.  Your mileage may vary.

Subject: [070] HRD 6.4.0

 

 

Hello All,

I’ve been using HRD for years now and I’m happy with the features. I’m running version 6.4.0.410 which I believe is the last free version on Windows 8.1.

The problem is that lately it has been prone to freezing after running a while. Since I usually leave my radio on for PSK Reporter captures, this is becoming a problem.

Is anybody else experiencing this?

I went on vacation last month to see the eclipse in Wyoming and I ran Fldidgi and it ran error free for three weeks. I’m lucky if HRD_DM780 will run for three days.

Flidgi is a non-starter for me for operating because the center frequency command will not set to [freq] + 1500 Hz which is where my K3’s filters are centered. It is stuck on [freq] + 1000 Hz - no bueno.

I’m thinking of biting the bullet and paying for the new version of HRD+DM780, but I’m wondering if anybody else is experiencing freezes with the latest version.

TIA,

No, I’m not familiar with that list. I did bring it up in here and apparently it is an issue with flrig rig control. I’m not thrilled with the logging features in Fldigi, among other things. The HRD logbook was really easy to look back on previous QSOs while working a station. I like to make notes that help me remember OPs.

I may be forced to change, however. Ugh!

Have you asked about the center frequency issue on the linuxham mailing list? They may have a solution for you that you just aren’t aware of.
