    I have a skin that has a map for the background. You need to download and be running that skin, otherwise the sun tracking will not turn on. Just search for skins on my web page. ke9ns.com/flexpage.html. I may embed map, so you if you enable the feature it would automatically override your normal background skin.

    I have the grayline working (but have not released), but I now either need to make it fit to a Robinson projection map (which I have never seen anybody do), or change my map to the traditional Mercator projection.

    Thanks Darrin, I must say that these additions are really making the PowerSDR software VERY UNIQUE and its very much appreciated around the world, I expect. I am now more eager to use it and explore all the add-ons.

    Steven, you could get a flex 1500 on the cheap, actually would these updates push the 1500,3000 and 5000 re-sale prices up ?

    Evening Darrin

    Just loaded your latest S4 version with the Grey Line Working.  This feature is fantastic.  Great job, and also thanks to the guys that helped you with this request (See on your Website).  First thing that I noticed was the surface of the earth where the sun is shining on, is dark not light, just opposite of what one would expect to see. Is this by design? 

    Once again Great Job on adding this cool feature.

    Take a break OM!!

    Cheers

    Kevin, Va3KGS

    I had to dull down the map so it would be easier to view the panadapter signals. The original map was way too bright. A lot of judgement calls on how to keep the original functionality and add the grayline at the same time. I really want a map with no lat/long lines so I don't need to turn off the grid lines either. I am going to add the SFI next to the Sun. Then work to improve the code.

    Agreed! Awesome job and thanks!

    As Kevin mentioned, would it be possible to have an option to go with a "light" day and "dark" night?

    A major thank you for your work too!

    I think I understand what you want. Download RevS4 again. I changed the bright gray area to a darker shade, so it makes more sense.  Also added the SFI and A index to the Sun track

    Darrin, I was able to run version S3 without issue on my Flex 1500, however, I was wondering about the DttSP.dll file included in the package.  Does it need to replace the original DttSP.dll file that was located in the PowerSDR v2.7.2 directory?  Is it the same file?

    I have a newer compiler for the Dttsp.dll and will eventually include that version to test out, but for now, its just the original file.

    Hello,
    how can i change the size of the two windows of panafall ? i would like to use it with the new feature of s4 release(equirectangular project map ),it's possible ?

    It's possible have the grid lines  off automatically when Sun or Gray lines is enabled?

    Thank you

    Agree 110%. I almost feel like getting a Flex-5000. I feel that this work will make the rigs that rely on it appreciate.

    I just put up Rev S6

    This turns off Grid Lines automatically

    And also has a special Panafall mode that is 80% panadapter and 20% waterfall

    Maybe, eventually I can make the Pan and Water user adjustable.

    Darrin, I had a thought about using the world map to display say red dots which will indicate countries being heard on the dx cluster. Would this be possible to do as I think it will at a glance, show where the bands are open to. This would have to be linked to a real dx cluster and not eu stations spotting eu stations

    That's exactly what I thought of as well. I cant use QRZ since they have a limit on the number of lookups per day (unless you pay them). I need a site where you type in the call sign and the Lat/Long coordinates show up. The best would simply be a text lookup table of call prefixes with Lat/Long coordinates and maybe the Country or Island name. If my map is a true Equirectangular Projection, then even the Islands that you cant see on such a small map, will show up with a DOT

    Darrin, it could work if you somehow hook up with data from the hf beacon network, I know its limited from 20m to 10m, but its a start. There is an app for something similar called Faros.

    Darrin any chance you could tag the 2nd rx passband ( blue ) to the right of the 1st rx passband indicator, because when changing bands and operating split, it always hides off screen on the panadapter display. This way, it will always be next to the 1st rx passband  and enabled or dis-enabled as required

    Thanks

    You want the SPLIT Transmit passband to appear blue (like the "MultiRX" function appears  blue)?

    And....... I found a call sign prefix list with lat/long :)

    Morning Darrin,
    Not exactly. The MultiRx  is blue coloured and when its activated with the "MultiRx" button, its nowhere to be seen, as its usually off screen somewhere. Can its default position be made next to Main passband window. This way one does not have to scroll around to find it or enter a frequency into the B vfo box to bring it into view.

    Thanks Darrin, the map screen looks good, Is there anyway to add a susyem for the warc bands as seen in the faros software, which is linked to the hf beacon data. These beacons transmit every 10 seconds on bands from 20m to 10m. Could you add another feature whereby we could monitor the beacons on a band to band basis. For example, when on 20m, we will see a green led flashing on the country thats tx,ing at the precise moment. If you look at faros, you will see what I mean.
    Also, why not make the red dots band dependent, this way there will be less cluttering, although you could user a smaller text font

    Darrin, I experienced a strange glitch. I was on the 20m band and wanted to jump to another frequency, but even though I right clicked on the waterfall display and selected say 14.200, when I clicked on 14.200 to jump there, the freq in the vfo box was off by 2 Khz. I am going to reboot and check again, so please dont take his as gospel right now. Let me check first. The spotter is not activated nor anthing else in there.

    Just rebooted from cold start and the problem is now that I jump to the 10Mhz band. Also noticed that using the mouse wheel, scrolls the bands incl the www,vhf and swl buttons. I think there might be an issue between the various sub routines and jumping in/out among them.

    I just uploaded a new S7 (just now) to fix a keyboard shortcut issue I just figured out. But It sounds like your mouse functions got messed up somehow.

    Nice. I uploaded a new S7 that adds mapping of calls by band and now allows using the reverse beacons.
