Another try:

A bright/white background makes the human iris to contract.

Therefore dark lines on bright background always appear clearer
than bright lines on dark/black background.

simple but true

...perhaps some members better don't want a clear view of their results.

Overwrites PNGs

Hi,

When capturing the same QRG twice on the same day, the previous file is overwritten. Of course there is a workaround but couldn't it be possible to ask for a different filename before overwriting?

Question

Hi Terje,

I added the starttime in filename between Date and username.

But DRMcalc has now a much more difficult problem. How to cchoose the correct site for 5875 khz from Rampsiham and Norway, both labeled with BBCWorldService?

Hi Carsten,
today as a workaround I just edited the drmtx file and use 5875 for KVI and 05875 for RMP until there is a better solution to the problem

Hi Carsten,

As an amateur VB programmer I understand your feeling. The more the merrier.... (?) Arrrgh. ERR 99999

Nah, I'd save the first file for now, and then move into a different folder and then save the new one, re-label it until you find a solution...

Thumbs up

Hi Carsten,

Great new version thanks. I have found a bug which is so obscure I feel embarrassed to report it .

If Dream logging is enabled/disabled for less than a minute there is no detail record written - only a header/footer. In DRMCalc the window and some stats eg TX distance are then not refreshed, but previous values are still displayed.

regards
Bob

Hi Carsten,

Bravo!

But why do the comments remain when you change logs? And how can you read the comments at the very left and right borders of the chart?

Hi Terje,

text out of borders will be no problem anymore in the next version, please see attached screenshot.

If you add a remark, DRMcalc gives you 3 Options. One of them is "Delete all". Or just uncheck the "Show remark" checkbox.

Hi Carsten,

I'm a nit-picker, I know.
But I know, once you start programming there will be NO end.
Thanks for the good work.

Exclamation New version 5.2

The old comparision engine of DRMcalc had quite a few bugs. So I had to redesign the whole engine. I hope that it will work now correctly in all possible cases. If you still find some mistakes, please send me the two log files.

Important for Dream users: Please make sure that your receivers coordinates are saved in the dream.ini file! I removed the storage of coordinates for Dream in this version. It was more confusing and is not really needed anymore, because Dream is able so save the coordinates since a long time now.

These are all the changes in 5.2:

DRMcalc 5.2:
- total redesign of the comarision engine, because the old one had serveral bugs
- added time of remark in the remark text
- tx site identification improved
- removed the option of displaying the distance in miles instead of km
- detection of log files from Winradio
- removed storage of coordinates for Dream (coordinates are saved in the dream.ini, please put your coordinates there if not done already)
- message for invalid coordinates
- enlarged tx site statusbar window
- enlarged tx site selection window

Hi Carsten,
as my computer is quite slow could you make it 600 by 800?
