Batch files to run Log4OM and other digi programs

Below are two Windows batch files (aka CMD scripts) that I use to start Log4OM and my favorite digital radio programs. Each script starts out with a test to see if it is running as Administrator, by attempting to copy a "flag" file to the Log4OM program directory. If it can't, you're not running as ...

Re: CI-V to USB Cable for the IC-7300 fldigi solution

Thanks! I received the Valley Enterprises cable a couple of days ago, and it is working fine. I've merged my Log4OM fldigi configuration with the my standard config, all's well. The cable has red and green LEDs that show activity, which is either useful or annoying, depending on your point of view. ...

Re: CI-V to USB Cable for the IC-7300 fldigi solution

Thanks, Terry. I’ve ordered the Valley Enterprises cable from Amazon, ETA next week. If it doesn’t work, I can easily return it, and order from the UK vendor you mentioned.

CI-V to USB Cable for the IC-7300 fldigi solution

I'm looking for a CI-V to USB cable (sold in the USA) for the "Icom IC7300 CAT control for multiple data programs" solution. Any recommendations? I found a $26 cable on Amazon made by Valley Enterprises, which claims to have a genuine FTDI chip. Is this suitable? I recall that counterfeit FTDI chips...

WSJT-X logs to Log4OM2, but add JTAlert and it doesn't

I just upgraded from Log4OM v. 1.x to 2.7.0.0. I Read The Friendly Manual (dated 20/06/2020 6:30 PM). I was able to get almost everything working this evening. I followed p. 162 of the manual to get WSJT-X communicating with Log4OM, got it logging my FT8 QSOs. As soon as I double click on a call, th...

Re: Set Icom 7300 clock from LOG4OM?

Got it. Thanks! As for senior moments, no worries. I have those, too. It’s not fair. I’m only 26...with 40 years additional experience. :D

Re: Set Icom 7300 clock from LOG4OM?

Terry, thanks. But I don’t see a link to the program you’re describing. Please post it. Yes, a console mode version would be great—I can drop it into the CMD scripts I use to start Log4OM plus Fldigi or WSJTX and JTAlert.

Set Icom 7300 clock from LOG4OM?

Is there a way to set my Icom 7300’s clock to UTC from LOG4OM’s initialization? Like many 7300s, mine suffers from a dead clock battery that is not easily replaced. So every power on is Midnight, Jan 1. It would be so nice not to have to set the date and time every time I turn on the radio. Alternat...

Re: Fldigi "QSY" button won't work w/Log4OM

There is one additional problem: flrig doesn't understand that I've switched from VFO A to B when I do it with the IC 7300's buttons; only when I do it with flrig's onscreen VFO buttons. So the frequency is correct, but which VFO I'm using may not be. This led to something being logged on the wrong ...

Re: Fldigi "QSY" button won't work w/Log4OM

I tried both Mike W9MDB's method, and IZ3XNJ's modification with the current hamlib bin files copied to Log4OM's AppData. Both work! It's very nice to have the QSY button working in fldigi. And to have frequency changes take effect everywhere, regardless of whether they were performed in Log4OM, in ...
