DXLab Suite Winwarbler PSK31 Configuration



I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

    I followed your directions for setting up WinWarbler but the screen image is too large and I cannot see the waterfall display. I tried adjusting the message boxes but can’t make that part smaller so I can see the waterfall. Any ideas?

      Hi Bill,

      The waterfall shows up when in digital modes like PSK and RTTY. When the radio is in SSB there isn’t a waterfall. I mention this just in case, hi!

      You should be able to grab the top of the window with your mouse and shrink the size of the window. If that doesn’t work, you could try right-clicking in the Microsoft Windows taskbar and select “Cascade windows”. See if that brings it to a manageable size. Size it with the mouse.

    Thanks for your response. I did get it fixed by changing (reducing) the resolution on my display which made the image fit with the waterfall showing. When I reset my resolution to normal (high) the image did not change back so the waterfall was still showing. For some reason I am not getting any audio input into the WW so I am rechecking the settings. Heavy snow here in MN interfered with my antenna so I getting set to try it again. Bill

      Hi Bill,

      Good to hear from you. Yes, sometimes my Windows get misconfigured and I have to reset things. Recently, when I got a new monitor I had a little trouble getting everything to look right.

      At times my audio will get misconfigured too and I need to go back and look at the Soundcard tab, Reception and Transmission. That’s usually where the problem lies. It happens to me in other programs too.

      Take care and 73,

      Hi Rein,

      It’s nice to hear from you and thank you for the question. I am not sure if I understand it, but I’ll try.

      If you have a column showing in the log as user-defined you can define it by going to Config and then the Log tab. Under Log Page Display use the Item and drop down list to define it as something.

      The way to remove a column while viewing your log is to use your mouse on the separating lines.

      Have a look at this video: DXKeeper Getting Started

      I hope this helps and answers your question. It’s a little hard to describe.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for commenting here and nice to hear from you.

    The location is at the top of the WinWarbler Macros window. Mine is c:\DXLab\WinWarbler\scripts, put it there and from the WinWarbler Macros window click on the “Load” button. You can load it from there.


    Rich, K0PIR

    P.S. To modify a macro, depress the Ctrl key while clicking on the macro’s associated button or striking its associated function key. WinWarbler will display its macro definition window.
