What's new in Turbolog 4 (V4.15-Build 500)

Dear TurboLog users!

Welcome to the large TurboLog community. Here are latest and important news for you:

*New Release of Turbolog 4 (V4.15-Build 500)*

Turbolog4 support and interface to JT-Modes

The digital JT-modes like FT8, JT65, etc. have become extremely popular in ham radio these days. These modes were originally implemented in WSJT-X, K1JT's genuine release. Since WSJT-X was published under the Open Source regime international teams of developers have forked out various clones thereof, e.g. JTDX and others. Turbolog4.14 now has received an interface to these programs which provides the following features:

These features are of great operational benefit and relief, i.e. in busy periods where 40 to 60 decoded calls may rush in every 15 seconds. In this situation the operator would soon be saturated and fail to detect the calls he really needs to look for. Now he can relax, lean back and just watch for the colors of interest.

Besides this: All bugs which were brought to our attention were fixed and online HELP, PDF Reference Manual and German Quick Start Help were all updated.

In order to benefit from the goodies as described above you should read the appropriate HELP topics. A complete list of all amendments (new features and bug fixes) as implemented in this new release is available in the menu item on Version Information in TurboLog's main menu. Hyperlinks will easily lead you to the paragraphs which describe the new features.

*Important information for this update*

1. Please note: While you update an existing installation of Turbolog4 the old Packet table will be deleted and completely reconstructed. This is necessary because of all the many new features around highlighting of Packet spots.

2. The new release of TurboLog4 includes MMVARI as another device for operating the most popular digital modes, e.g. RTTY, PSK, QPSK, MFSK,GMSK at various baud rates all in just one window. However, this fancy device requires the installation of an OCX plug-in for operation. If you do not want this plug-in to reside on your machine you can deselect the MMVARI components for installation by ticking off the appropriate checkbox while you are prompted for confirmation during the update/installation process.

3. Please further note:

If you do a new (empty) installation under WINDOWS 7, 8 or 10 please do not select the WINDOWS default path C:\Programs... . You should install either directly under C:\... or in a different partition on your HDD instead.
