Clear CALLSIGN field after RR73 on FT8

Post by PY2REY » 19 Nov 2020, 23:35

My LOG4OM V2 2.10.0.0 dont clear anymore the field CALSSIGN after finished the QSO in JTDX.

The last classign stays on field until I clear or new contact.

Is this a bug? Or any setting missing? On last version, it is all right.

I noticed that.

I like it, and am hoping it is a new feature!

Don´t think that it´s possible. External software send call to Log4OM but the contact is stored
via UDP over JTalert or Gridtracker or however. If JTDX and/or WSJT-X dont send a "Clear Call"
it would not work (My 2 cts).

Here is how it is behaving right now (V2.10)

I run WSJT-X directly with Log4OM. (No JTalert, or etc.)

When I work a station on WSJT-X, it populates the "input frame" (upper left of Log4OM).

When I finish the QSO, Log4OM logs it, then the QSO information persists in the "input frame" (and the "F2 Info frame to the right) until a new QSO partner information arrives from WSJT-X.

I am happy with that behavior.

Its no problem for me when stay only on WSJT, but.... if change to phone mode, I have to delete manually the last QSO.

Sometimes, I forget and put the callsign with another last, then this is a little problem.

I prefer, when finished the QSO, the field "CALLSIGN" is cleared. Like when make phone QSOs and use <enter>.

I am using now WSJT-Z, and there is the settings to clear this field, but dont work it. I tested with JTDX and WSJT-X ... same thing.

The settings in WSJT-Z/X and/or JTDX are only for this porograms himself. It means that
the callsingn field in these apps are be cleared after 73. They don´t send a clear callsign
to Log4OM.

Hey guys,

I made a downgrade to 2.9.0.0 to test, because I am having a few bugs on 2.10.0.0, and confirmed that after QSO on FT8 recorded, the field CALLSIGN is cleared. In 2.10.0.0 its not happening.

I just only renamed the folder of Log4OM to BKP (example) and install a 2.9.0.0.
The install ocurred on same folder before, and use same settings.

I will wait 2.10.1.0 or 2.11.0.0 to update, because there is few bugs thats not good to use yet.
