Test of v0.6

Post by fy4pr » Wed Mar 13, 2013 3:51 am

Hi Dan, hi all,
I was playing with pocket TX when i saw the autoupdate succesfull of the v0.6... HAPPY!
I checked on internet, nothing about v0.6, so i think i'm the first to make a feedback.

i found that:
Version 0.6 (Feb 12th , 2013).

What’s new/changed:

multi WebSDR servers support;

slow AGC for waterfall (better contrast without fast changes);

High/Low quality mode for Waterfall/Spectrum;

use camera hardware button (if available) as PTT;

added support for IC-7000 in HRD mode;

when you manually edit the frequency the display is cleared at first key press;

Bugs solved:

USB symbol remains when starting in FT8x7 mode even if USB is not activated;

incorrect UTC time if time zone is negative;

PTT does not work for TS-2000;

crash if no USB host support available on the smartphone/tablet with os version 2.3.x;

bands not saved/recalled when changing memories;


After some test, (with HRD and a FT-857 with USB CAT)
-i seen that the PTT button on the camera button work very well! Thanks Dan!
-The 0.032 bug is still here when communication error or problem,
-the callback of the memories still don't work the second time we do a callback
-The power indicate by the power button in pocketTX do not correspond to the power set really on the transceiver.
-11m band button don't work
-S meter bar don't work correctly (never more than a small blue pixel)
-Changing fast or playing too much with some parameters make HRD crashing! Have to hard shutoff and restart HRD on windows.
-the manual frequency entry working well now when don't need do delete the old caracters. Thanks Dan!

Thanks for all Dan, you're doing a great job, i'm sure making a so complicate software is hard.

Hi Fredo,

First I want to thank you for updating and trying the new version. It was a major update mainly because of he multi-WebSDR servers support.

As I told you before, this is something in relation with HRD which in some circumstances (not yet discovered) return 0 as value for the frequency.
-the callback of the memories still don't work the second time we do a callback
Do you mean second in a row?
-The power indicate by the power button in pocketTX do not correspond to the power set really on the transceiver.
Please help me with this, HRDip and send me the values for different power levels in FT-857
-11m band button don't work
Ooops. you're right..:-)
Corrected now.
-S meter bar don't work correctly (never more than a small blue pixel)
Again, this is transceiver dependent. Please run HRDip and send me the possible values foe S
-Changing fast or playing too much with some parameters make HRD crashing! Have to hard shutoff and restart HRD on windows.
Here I cannot do to much. I'm pushing HRD IP Server beyond his limits with this app.
Thanks for all Dan, you're doing a great job, i'm sure making a so complicate software is hard.
Please help me to solve the remaining issues you have, one by one.
I will send a link for intermediate releases to check results before pushing in Play Store

Hi Dan,

Do you mean second in a row?

Not in a row. Just the second time i callback a frequency.
I mean if i just start pocket TX, i want to callback a memory, i push the first memory button 14.200Mhz for example. The transceiver go to 14.200Mhz. I can transmit or listen or change the frequency with the rotator button. But if i want to go to an other frequency with an other memory button, 21.300Mhz for example, my second memory button, i push on it, but the FT857 stay on 14.200Mhz, and PocketTX bug! Nothing more can be send from pocket tx, i need to disconnect - reconnect.

Please help me with this, HRDip and send me the values for different power levels in FT-857

I did here: http://www.yo3ggx.ro/forum/viewtopic.ph ... p=647#p647

tell me if it's not what you're expected

Again, this is transceiver dependent. Please run HRDip and send me the possible values foe S

I did "get smeter-main" on hrd ip
Of course the result is changing depend of the signal level the transceiver is receiving.
But it show something like that:

For a Signal of 7:
S7,7,15 [meter_reading,raw_value,max_value]

For a Signal of 0:
S,0,15 [meter_reading,raw_value,max_value]

For a Signal of 9+10:
S9+10,10,15 [meter_reading,raw_value,max_value]

On my tests, it's just the S-meter bar which is not working correctly. The S number (just top of the S bar) is working good and showing the good value!
And i want to say also that the s-meter bar working good when i'm in SDR mode ! The problem exist just in HRD mode


Thanks Dan!
Tell me if i can do something more to help you.
It will be a pleasure to test your intermediates releases.
