DXLab Suite Automatic Installation Using Launcher – Installing Commander & DXKeeper


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Love your videos! Thought I’d mention that I’ve been using the DXLab software for several months and I, like you, really enjoy using JTAlert and WSJT-X. I have found though, that I do not need to use Commander with these programs. JTAlert interfaces with DXKeeper and adds the log record as soon as you send your “73”. I also find that it is much easier to switch bands using WSJT-X.

Yes, you are correct, I have an Elecraft K3S, not the IC-7610. I didn’t know that your radio has not yet been added to WSJT-X. I’m sure it will be added soon with as popular as that radio is.

In any case, the DXLab Suite is excellent software and it is regularly updated. Takes a while to work through all the options and settings but it works flawlessly once you take the time.

Hi Rich

After 2 months of absolutely no problems with my IC-7610, DXLabs and WSJT-X setup I have how develop a problem I can’t solve.
Every thing was working perfectly then I down loaded WSJT-X V1.9.0 RC2. Then the trouble started.

First thing I did is go back to version v1.8.0 but the problem was still there.

When I hit “test PTT” in WSJT NOTHING HAPPENS.
I get an error message (rig failure) DXLabs suite commander rig did not respond to PTT; ON

Hi Rich
Thank you the reply, lets forget about WSJT, with only commander running and nothing else. No mater what I do there is a 3 second delay on CAT. I change band, frequency, mode ECT. there I about a 3 second delay.

I have rebooted my computer

All setting in commander appear to be correct. like I said everything was working for several months. I am using the Icom IC-7600

Hi Rich –
Thx for all the videos. Will you be doing any more videos about DXLab Suite? More in depth on DXKeeper, SpotCollector, DXView, and Propview?

I am the guy that suggested awhile back you look at GridTracker, just as a reminder!

And, of course a subscriber.
