I know many Flex users use LOG4OM. Version 2 was just released and I’m preparing to upgrade. I’m wondering if anyone already has? If so, do you consider it stable enough to do a total step up? I have specific questions related to WSJT and JTAlert. Version 2 allows you to simultaneously run version 1 & version 2 just I case some new bugs are discovered. I am assuming that you would have to 2 occurrences of WSJT and JTALERT?
Edited for iPad keyboard mistakes.
This afternoon's plans are to install V2, import the ADIF file, get it talking to my 6500 and update JTALERT to talk with V2. Have not decided yet if I'll run V1 in parallel for a time.
Where is the OmniRig tab in V1? I tried clicking on the Omnirig.exe file and nothing happens. Perhaps you can't open the file while Flex / LOG4OM is running? The only mention I saw in V1 was where you slect OmniRig or Hamlib in the setup, but there wasn't any obvious was to view the settings
So, this weekend I pulled the trigger and made the switch to V2, but it wasn’t without some confusion and hesitation. The biggest problem I encountered was temporarily loosing ~ 500 contacts when I imported the ADIF file from version 1. I reached out to Terry on the support forum at ~ 16:00 local time this weekend. That’s already pretty late in the UK! Within about 15 minutes he responded and asked me to send him my ADIF file. 30 minutes later he responded again, explaining that I had ~ 500 contacts that had varying missing data – these were contacts from the 70’s that were originally logged in a dBase format and converted to ADIF when I started using electronic logging. Using the Bulk Edit feature, I was able to correct most of the missing data and get the V1 file imported to V2. Tell me one other program that will provide this level of support, so quickly – and the program is FREE!
The UI is totally rearranged, but in a good way which now allows you to customize just about any aspect of the program. So many new tools and features – the wait to get to V2 was definitely worth it. For me, having to relearn how to do certain tasks a new way is probably the biggest frustration, but one that I’m getting past very quick. I read that the team is working on adding some features to directly communicate with FRS radios. If they decided to start charging for this software, I’d have absolutely no problem paying a reasonable price for it – I like it that much! I’ve already sent the team a donation. It also provides seamless integration with many online propagation resources and DX Clusters. For QRZ XML subscribers, the moment you enter the stations call you have all his QRZ info in front of you along with a street level map. I can definitely see how this will have an impact on HRD’s business model.
Tried v2, it is different and in general looks good.
However I could not figure out how to enable 2nd receiver (2nd slice) in the program, there is no information in Manual.
Also, I could not find a way to change fonts, on 4k monitor it looks blurry.
I gave up.
Going back to LogHX.
Once I got that individual port connected to the correct slice and set Omni Rig (version 1) Rig 1 to the right port and Rig 2 to the right port it worked.
