xmit profiles missing
I have many profiles, 4 for each band. One 20 meter profile with a xmit profile of 20 watts, for use with my amp on cw. And a second 20 meter profile with a xmit profile of 20 watts, for running without my amp on cw.
Then 2 more 20 meter profiles for ssb, one with 20 watts and one with 100 watts. etc for every ham band. So I ended up with lots of profiles.
Originally I had made only 2 profiles per band, one for cw and one for ssb and they all used the default xmit profile. After being educated as to the need for creating xmit profiles other than the default I created these 2 additional xmit profiles, 20 watts and 100 watts.
Then I created all new global profiles using 20 watt and 100 watt xmit profiles. Having worked in the IT field for over 25 years I created export/backup files after every couple of new global profiles. All these changes were made using the latest version of ssdr and a fully updated Windows 10 PC. I was running under SmartControl creating the profiles on the PC, not on the radio front panel.
Then this afternoon the 20 and 100 watt xmit profiles disappeared. All the global profiles that used 20 and 100 watt xmit profiles now had a default xmit profile. I tried to load xmit profiles from backups but the 20 watt and 100 watt xmit profiles I had created, and had been using for hours were not there. I tried to import from my backups and I had to go back several backups to find the 20 and 100 watt xmit profiles. The generic profiles were there but not the 20 watt and 100 watt xmit profiles. I powered off the radio and rebooted the PC and the radio, no joy.
So I imported a backup that contained the 100 watt xmit profile and the 20 watt xmit profile. This backup was several versions old, maybe 4 or 5 versions old.
Went back to updating my global profiles using the 20 and 100 watt xmit profiles, exporting/saving after every couple band global profile changes.
Late this afternoon I loaded a 100 watt global profile and the power indicator said that it was for 20 watts. All my global profiles that had contained 100 watt xmit profiles now had 20 watt xmit profiles and the 100 watt xmit profile was no longer appearing in the listing of xmit profiles.
I went to SSDR/Profiles/Import Export Profiles and pointed to last created backup. Looking at the xmit profile section the 20 and 100 watt xmit profiles show up. So I imported, it appeared to work succesfully. Then I load a global profile and the 100 xmit watt profile is not there.
The only problems I have had with the radio is with the KAT500 tuner I just hooked up, see another of my posts about that. But the radio itself seems to be working fine.
I did a radio factory reset. I turned off the KAT500 and turned the internal tuner on. Imported all my settings from the last backup, the 100 watt xmit profile is not there even though it shows on the import screen.
I'm not going to spend another 2 hours recreating all those global profiles I have already created twice.
Does anybody have a nice HW-16 they would like to sell?
