KLog 0.9.2 comes with some new features

(Download KLog)

  • KLog cluster client warns you if the spot you are seeing is a needed one for the DXMarathon edition of this year, so you can easily increase your DX-Marathon score!

Montando un Kit de Software Defined Radio

[Este apunte lo tenía escrito, como borrador desde hace unos meses]

Hace tiempo que perseguía la web de KB9YIG con la esperanza de comprar un Kit de SDR. Salen de vez en cuando 10-30 unidades y a las pocas horas, días como mucho, se agotan así que hay que estar atento.

Un anuncio en el foro de URE me dió la alerta y conseguí un “SoftRock RXTX Ensemble Transceiver Kit”: Un transceptor de 1W, que puedes montar para que funcione en un conjunto de bandas de HF: 160m, 80m/40m, 40m/30m/20m, 30m/20m/17m or 15m/12m/10m.

Así que tras unos días de espera (unos 10-15) me llegaron dos sobres con los componentes, la placa de circuito impreso, los conectores, …

Hay unas instrucciones de montaje en la web de WB5RVZ que son bastante sencillas de seguir.

El kit se monta por bloques que se van probando antes de pasar al siguiente.

Ensemble RXTX

La mayoría de los componentes son componentes discretos, convencionales aunque también hay algunos componentes de montaje superficial: condensadores y circuitos integrados.

Para los SMD necesitas un poco más de experiencia con el soldador ya que algunos son especialmente pequeños; hay que tener una buena punta en el soldador y buen pulso!!

Además, hay que cablear bobinas y transformadores así que hay un poco de todo.

En resumen, un buen kit, de momento el montaje es entretenido y va funcionando aunque aun no he llegado ni a la mitad!

Un puzzle recomendado para los aficionados a la electrónica.

KLog 0.9.0.2 released: Quick bug fix release

I have just released KLog 0.9.0.2.
It is a quick bugfix release fixing two different bugs.

The changelog shows:

November-2014 – 0.9.0.2
– Bugfix: Right-click on search result sometimes caused KLog to crash.

November-2014 – 0.9.0.1
– Bugfix: Selected DX-Cluster servers were not used to connect. (TNX DL6FBS)

Enjoy KLog and report any bug you may find!

KLog 0.9.0 released: Kontest goes back to KLog again

After some time adding new features and doing quite a lot of bugfixing, I have decided to release KLog 0.9.0.
For those who follow this development, you will see that KLog moved to Kontest and then came back to KLog again… I decided to keep the name KLog (at least for a while!).

So here is the release, enjoy it and please report any bug you find (I am pretty sure that you will find some!)

IMPORTANT: As KLog has been fully rewritten since version 0.7.0, it is still not been translated to many languages. Today it is only translated to English and Spanish so, if you want to help KLog to be in your language, send me an email!

KLog 0.9.0 (Nov 2014):

The Debian package will be uploaded to the Debian servers soon.

The Changelog says:

November-2014 – 0.9.0
– Ensures the ASCII requirement of ADIF.
– Updated the Preferences dialog.
– Added the About Qt help menu.
– Bugfix: Selected DX-Cluster servers were not used to connect.
– Bugfix: When selecting QSL received/sent with right click, date was not updated.
– Bugfix: Fixed the FileManager::adifReadLog to be able to read logs with several lines per QSO.
– Some other minor bugfixes.
– New feature: It is possible to show Imperial System (Miles instead of Km) data. (TNX – KF5JNU)
– New feature: It is possible to mark/look for & export requested QSL.
– New feature: It is possible to automatically mark(or not) a QSL as requested by the DX when the DX’s card is received.
– New feature: It is possible to show (or not) the callsign used in the search box.
– New feature: KLog uses bigcty.csv for normal DX & will use cty.csv for contesting.

Kontest 0.0.2-alpha (Qt4 backport) windows installer

I think I have it.

I have fixed the bug in the windows installer package of Kontest.

The package showed an error “Driver not loaded” just when the database was created so, thanks to Google I found the fix in the great stackoverflow.

So, in a few words, just add a sqldrivers folder and copy the qsqlite4.dll file in it before creating the package and you will have it!

I have done some (just a few, to be honest!) tests in a clean windows virtual host and it worked like a charm so I hope it is OK for most of the systems out there.

You can find the file http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/ in the same place as the previous days.

As always, thank you for testing and sending the bug reports!

 

Kontest 0.0.2-alpha (Qt4 backport)

This is a quick post to tell you that I have just released a quick backport of Kontest to Qt4 (4.8.5) as some of you have told me that Qt5 is not OK for your system.

You can download from here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/

For the binary packages (windows & OSX) you will have to wait a bit more or help me with them.  It’s been the first time I release software for Windows or OSX and I think I still need to learn some things 🙂

Thanks for testing!

Kontest 0.0.1-alpha or KLog 1-alpha: New alpha release

I have rewritten completely KLog into a new software, Kontest. The name is something still to be defined so if you have any preference, please tell me what you think! Today it is called Kontest, because I wanted to give KLog contest capabilities.

Today, let me call KLog to the previous software and Kontest to the new one, so we can understand each other. 🙂

What’s new with Kontest?

My first intention was to provide all the functionalities of KLog into Kontest, before releasing, to try to avoid the maintenance of two different software packages, however, there are some differences:

  • The main difference between KLog and Kontest is that Kontest can be run in Linux, OSX and Windows.
  • Kontest uses an sqlite database and can be executed in memory or in a file, providing speed or security of your data, you choose!
  • Kontest has an improved GUI, with some more fields to manage data.

What about the contest capabilities?
Even ifKontest has been designed to allow an “easy” integration of new contest from the developer point of view although today it is not supporting ANY contest…

My intention was to provide all the KLog functionalities first, and once the day-to-day logging is working as KLog, I will start working on the contest capabilities.

What can I do now?

  • First of all, remember that this is an ALPHA release so it may (I should use will) have many bugs. Don’t trust this software to be your only logging software (yet) and know that you can loose your data!! I am just releasing this version because I believe in the RERO development philosophy.
  • Join the mailing list. We will use the KLog’s mailing list. So please, subscribe and send all the bugs and suggestions you have.
  • Help with the development. You can join me to create the best multiplatform hamradio logging software we can.

So, how can I download Kontest?

Today, you can only download Kontest from Sourceforge.

Check the following link for the downloads:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/kontest/files/

That’s all.

Again, don’t hesitate to report any bug and/or suggestion you may have.

I hope you will enjoy Kontest!

KLog 0.6.1 – released: Another bugfix release

As I told you some months ago, I keep rewriting a new software… but my free time is close to zero 🙁 sometimes code some lines but my time in radio is mostly spent in the radio 🙂

However… yesterday I was DXing in 50Mhz and I noticed that the bearing was not correct and the coding-virus made me fix the bug ASAP.

So … here is the data of this new release:

DOWNLOAD:
Download KLog 0.6.1 from:

The Debian package has been already uploaded to the Debian servers.

This releases has the following Changelog:

June – 2013 – 0.6.1

  • GUI updated: The cursor position management of the QRZ box has been improved to ease the operation.

As always, KLog is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Serbian, Galician and Swedish.
