GridTracker, WSJT-X and Log4OM

K0PIR

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.

Thanks for this article. I installed GT on my computer months ago but never used it and this really helps.

Hi Rich,
Your website and YouTube channel are absolutely fantastic, and you have such patience with us rookies! Can’t thank you enough!
I’m using Log4OM2, WSJT-X, and GridTracker, and it’s a great combo, except I can’t get the Log4OM cluster and band map to work. Cluster always shows disconnected, and nothing on the band map. I’d appreciate any thoughts.
Thanks again, buddy!

Hi Rich,
Thank you so much for all your help! Forgive me, but where do I add pi.k0pir and port 7300? Do I add this to the Connections, UDP Inbound? And what should I name it if so?
Again, so sorry, but want to make sure I get it right. By the way, I was able to get the Super Cluster to open by simply clicking on the icon on the upper right of Log4OM.
Thanks again!
73!

Hi Rich,

That worked! Thanks buddy. It appears that pi.k0pir.us is the primary, as there is a [PRI] and [U] in front of on the bottom active servers list, and a [U] in front of it in the known servers list. Is that okay? Thanks again! You are such a great help.

Hi Rich,
Frank, K2PF, again. I noticed that when in WSJT-X, mode FT8, if I keep my transmit and receive frequencies on the WSJT-X wide graph very close to each other, the FTDX10 stays locked on frequency, but if I lower my transmit even a few hz below receive frequency on the WSJT-X wide graph then the FTDX10 will transmit 500khz less than its locked frequency. If I raise transmit frequency above lets say around 50hz to 200hz or more than the receive frequency on WSJT-X wide graph, then the FTDX10 will go 500khz above its locked frequency. For instance, if I’m in 20M band, mode FT8 in WSJT-X, the Yaesu FTDX10 goes up or down 500khz from its locked frequency. 14.074.000 goes to either 14.074.500 or 14.073.500, even sometimes to 14.074.055. Its almost like an offset. But, if I keep my transmit and receive frequencies in WSJT-X the same, then the frequency stays locked on the FTDX10. Am I missing something? Thanks so much again, for your great website and YouTube channel!

Hi Rich,
Thanks so much again for all your help! Yes, in WSJT-X, under Split Operation, I have Fake It checked. Should I try Rig, or leave Fake It checked? Also, in OmniRig, I downloaded and installed the ini for the FTDX10; should I leave Poll int., ms at 100, and Timeout, ms at 100? (I have to set RTS and DTR both at High.)
Thanks buddy!

Nice to meet you!

Gridtracker & JTAlert also using same IP address & port.
I want using those two software at the same time, but the Grid tracker waiting for message
.
My executing sequence is,

  1. WSJT-X
  2. JTAlert
  3. Log4OM2
  4. GridTracker

How can I repair this problem?
Please give some advice.

Thanks.

I set up as described with my Yaesu FT-991 and the software plays together nicely. I have one big issue though – when I test transmit, my radio switches to RTTY-USB from the previous setting of DATA-USB. Also, when I re-select FT8 on the WSJT-X mode setting, the radio switches to RTTY-USB.
Any help would be appreciated!

GridTracker shows a few other stations connecting with each other. But there’s a lot more activity going on in WSJT-X than what I’m seeing in GT. How does GT decide who to show? Is there a setting to see more activity? Thx
