KLog 0.9.2.5 Another bugfix release

Yesterday, after checking some new QSL cards I had received I found a bug that causes the exported ADIF file not to show the right band and mode.

I quickly posted a Tweet about the bug so the users were aware… Luckily the bug was easy to fix (in a quick and dirty way, honestly) and here comes the 0.9.2.5 release that brings no new feature but the bug fix.

DXCC Status on KLog 0.9.2.5

DXCC Status on KLog 0.9.2.4

 

The main improvement of this release is first one in bold. It is a new widget showing the details of the DXCC status where you will be able to see how you are doing per DXCC entity and band.

KLog 0.9.2.4 RC1

I have just uploaded the release candidate (RC1)of 0.9.2.4.

As any other Release Candidate (RC), this is a RC version so no final.

I am releasing it for you to test, if you want to do some testing and report the bugs.

I will not add more functionalities in this version and I will release the final version in a couple of days, if nobody reports a serious bug.

You can find the packages here:

Please BACKUP ALL your data before upgrading.

Although I have done some tests on my computers, it may happen that this version (as any other) brings a bug… so please test.

My recommendation is that you backup the logbook.dat and the klogrc files.

Export also your log to an ADIF file before you update any KLog version.

Thanks for testing!

KLog 0.9.2.1: Quick bugfix

I have decided to implement a test-plan to do some specific tests before deploying any version.

I always do some tests before I deploy a new version of KLog but not on a sistematic approach, not always the same tests and it may happen (as this time) that I forget to test important functions of KLog.

Because of that, KLog 0.9.2 had an important bug that it is already fixed. KLog was not peoperly saving the band & mode information of new QSOs.

Please update KLog as soon as possible and sorry for the inconvenience O:-)

Otro satélite meteorológico: Meteor M2

Hoy he conseguido decodificar por primera vez una fografía del Meteor M2, otro satélite meteorológico, METEOR M2 2015esta vez ruso, a diferencia de los NOAA americanos.

El Meteor M2 fue lanzado en julio de 2014 así que es mucho más moderno que los NOAA que he recibido algunas veces y eso se nota en la definición de las fotografías que se pueden recibir de estos satélites.

El procedimiento de recepción de imágenes de este satélite no es tan directo y sencillo como los NOAA de APT, pero tampoco es especialmente complejo.

Teneis el tutorial que yo he usado aqui: tutorial de recepción METEOR-M2.

Esta ha sido la primera fotografía que he recibido y si pulsais en ella, podreis ver el detalle que ofrece. La foto está capturada en la mañana del día 2015-04-12.

Es interesante ver la nieve sobre los Alpes o los Pirineos.

El equipo utilizado es el siguiente:

  • X-Quad antena VHF.
  • SDR RTL comprado en eBay.
  • El software especificado en el tutorial del que hablaba antes.
  • Ordenador con MS-Windows.
