FT4

Post by mm0amw » Sat Jun 15, 2019 8:27 pm

I've made a handful of contacts with the new FT4 mode but any export I make from WL32 to LOTW the FT4 qso's are rejected with the Mode field marked as error.If I sign and upload an .ADI file from WL32 through TQSL I get the message, Invalid contact - QSO does not specify a mode on Line 21. I've added FT4 to the mode list in WL32 settings and FT4 is now added to the modes list on LOTW and I can upload qso's manually one by one on TQSL. I also get the Clublog error in data message when trying to send qso's to Clublog. Have I got some settings wrong? Any suggestions welcome.

Regards

Hi David

Before last release of Winlog32, I remember reading that there was some speculation about this mode being only experimental and the 'name' had not been decided upon, but obviously this has moved on if it has been released now, so probably this is the reason it is missing.

There is nothing you can do in Winlog32 as modes and sub-modes are hard coded onto the program.

As FT4 is a sub-mode of MFSK, the only possibility to allow this mode through for LoTW (etc) is to use the parent mode MFSK until it has been added.

I will attend to it ASAP

Thanks for that Colin, at least I know it wasn't me doing something wrong now. I'll leave the LOTW upload of these qso's till you issue an update of WL32.

David et.al.

Just updated build 32 to include FT4 as a sub-mode with MFSK as parent mode as per latest ADIF3 spec.
