Sluggish response during contest

Post by wa9zvf » 12 Jul 2017, 22:01

I've been using the current version of Log40m with Omni Rig. Normally when I double click on a cluster spot, my rig (Icom 7410) immediately goes to that frequency and the user call appears in the field in the upper left. During a recent contest, spots were coming in fairly quick and steady. When I would click on a spot, it would sometimes take 1 to 3 seconds for the rig to change frequency. Sometimes, the frequency would change but the call sign that would appear would not correspond to the frequency but to the adjacent spot. It could be that the little tablet computer that I'm using gets overwhelmed processing spots. Anyone have any insights?

I think your tablet is not capable for the high traffic that happens during contests and the filtering required for the cluster display.
