1. I have gray space under tool bars is too large...


2. For very slow computers:


3. Waterfall seems to move toooo slow...


4. CAT interface doesn't work:


5. How to set callbook database path in Callbook Settings dialog?


6. Is it possible to export selected QSOs?


7. Is it possible to work PSK having another mode at second receiving channel?


8. Is it possible to send from MixW2 a 1750Hz tone to open a repeater?


9. How can I do calibrate Sound Card with WWV mode in SSTV?


10. How to set a beep on receiving a reply to an AUTOCQ, and turns off the AUTOCQ?


11. I find I cannot edit the logfile thru the edit program. It shows changes made but does not record them. Selecting "yes" and exit program and then returning reverts back to original info. Why?


12. I cant access to logfile ! Why?

There may be two mistakes:


13. How can I do slant correction in SSTV mode?


14. Is it possible to run two instances of MixW? One instance from the left audio channel, another instance from the right audio channel.


15. How can I start another program just by opening MixW? Can it be done in the MixW ini file? I want to start QuickMix.exe automatically when I call MixW. It can run before or right after. Yes, I do have a macro, but I want this to be automatic.

Do it:

Of course, you must use "Edit" instead of "Add new" on the second stage if you have defined already that macro.


16. Whether uses MixW the Registry of Windows? And how to delete the program MixW from the computer?


17. At the low end of the Waterfall display I have at a zero audio frequency two yellow bars close together. Just like an idling PSK31. At about 360 Hz there is a single yellow bar. I am togle to USB, LSB but are still there.


18. How can I use mixw and ui-view with my SOUNDCARD ?


19. I can't setup the PTT option, because have to set it each time the program is loaded to work, the message was posted about it.


20. When listening/reading only, the frequency is stable, but when receiving just upon my transmission the reading is garbled and the indicator has to be adjusted a few Hertz lower (abt. half of the sinal width). This has to be repeated after each pair of TX-RX. This happens NOT with Zakanaka!


21. Where can I find specific macros: "OnStartMixW", "OnEndMixW", "OnOpen....", "OnClose...", "Gray..." etc?


22. What is to be done to have a shorter delay between TX and RX in FSK mode?

These values can be found in MixW2.ini

48 buffers, 256 samples each, 1/11025 sec per sample. Don't forget to exit from MixW before editing MixW2.ini.


23. I have found that running spectrum speed at 4x and above seems to swamp my processor and bring the program to a grinding halt. (P III 730 Mhz w/ 256 k RAM) I would like to see the detail at 8X. Am I doing something wrong?
