No spots with Slicemaster & HRD

I'm unable to get spots to show. I'm running v.2.3.7 & Slice Master v0.10.4c and HRD Log.  Spots in SSDR are enabled, Send spots to radio in SM is checked.  Spot sources checked are hrdlog://localhost, and telenet://wb8zrl.no-ip.org:7300 (I've also tried wa9pie as suggested in another post).  I'm not seeing any spots, and frequencies are not being fed to HRD Log unless I engage the HRD Server in DDUtil, at which time it fights with Slice Master and closes HRDLog.  What am I missing?

Hi Rick,

To get HRD Logbook working with Slice Master, my first suggestion is to enable Slice Master's HRD TCP TX Listener.  You'll need choose a port number than configure Logbook to use it rather than the one set in DDutil.  Note that this isnt necessary for spots to work, but it will cause HRD Logbook to track the TX slice.

But even without that your spots should be working.  Your question includes a typo though, so lets make sure your configuration doesnt.  Above you wrote  'telenet://wb8zrl.no-ip.org:7300' but that should read 'telnet://wb8zrl.no-ip.org:7300' (note telnet vs telenet)

When setup like this, your spots will be coming from wb8zrl but they will be "colored" by HRD Logbook.

Can someone tell me how to setup Slicemaster to use AE5E(dxspot.com)?  Much better server.

Or if you want to try and use filtering I think  this may work, (Replace CALL with your callsign)

 telnet://CALL@dxspots.com:7300/SET/FI... K,VE/PASS

The above should show only spots that were posted from US and Canada

That's pretty close.  If you leave out the call sign, the one stored in your radio will be used.  Also, if you want to send commands to the cluster you need to use a question mark after the port number and follow that with a command or two separated by semicolons.

So

telnet://dxspots.com:7300?set/filter k,ve/pass

might be worth a try.  But my recommendation here is to let some other program do your filtering and have it send spots to Slice Master.  VE7CC's CC User program is great for this.  If you use DXLab's Suite, Spot Collector even more so.
