    Rich, great explanation on how to use HRD logbook directly with WSJT and JTAlert. Cheers!

    Nice video, how do you adjust the wide graph like that? seems I can only see the waterfall from 200 to just pass 1800.

    For logging I use the WSJT-X log, I go in cut and then paste to a file named "log to send" then I upload that to QRZ, and eQSL. Furthermore I then Export and send my QRZ log to LoTW. A few extra steps, but I like it as it keeps me busy.

    Pretty much my same setup as well. I run Smart SDR on one computer and have it connect over the network to another computer running WSJT-X, JTAlert and HRDLogbook. DDUtil works great to interface the Flex and HRDlogbook.

    Thank you Miguel, nice to hear from you. If you are using the 7300 I have a video on it and then one on the widegraph.

    Basically the bandwidth is set to 3.6k on the radio and the wide graph in WSJT-X setting for Bins/Pixel is 3 or 4 and start at 200Hz. See if that works.

    You're not alone on that and using the WSJT-X log. It works very well. Keeps it simple.

    Best 73,

    HRD and my transceiver work just fine and dandy together. No problems at all. Throw WSJT into the mix and set it to use HRD and I have nothing but problems. Looses connection constantly, erratic operations, erroneous commands sent to the transceiver, won't operate in split mode. Already spent way too much time trying to trouble shoot it. Running HRD Logbook alone with WSJT and JT Alert works fine as long as I don't try using HRD's rig control.

    The only time I ever had a problem was when I somehow got the polling rate set to something other than 1-second. Of course, there are just so many different rig/interface/pc connections that nothing is a sure thing. ;)

    Considering how complex these systems are these days I'm sometimes surprised that they work at all. Still it's a hell of a lot of fun to play with. If my electronics instructors from back in college some 35+ years ago could see the equipment I'm working with today it would look like something out of a SciFi movie.

    Yes and this way I can even use the Rig for Split Mode and it works great.

    Exactly. Making it work is at least half the fun. :)
