Finished product WSJT-X 2.0 now available; testing by the 3Y0I team

The -rc experiments are over and V2.0 of WSJT-X is now available. Download it here.

As with the -rc versions, my download went smoothly and is now running on the desktop (Flex) with plenty of activity and decodes, meaning that others who may not have participated in the -rc upgrades have now put 2.0 on their machines.

Putting it the laptop (Anan-10e) as we speak.

Come on in, the water's fine.

And this from the 3Y0I Bouvet DXpedition team:

"Today, December 10, starting at 1700Z we will conduct 24 hours of testing via FT8 Expedition Mode version 2.0 on our listed 3Y0I Band Plan frequencies. We welcome all Hams using version 2.0 to participate in this 24 hour test. This will be helpful for us and all who make contact when we land on Bouvet. Our Callsign during this 24 hour test will be E51DOM/mm.
Frequencies while on Bouvet are listed on our Band Plan."

Point your antennas toward South Africa for this test.

  2. AD4TD: I see that the Retain box for comments when logging is not working; it is not retaining the new info I put there( old info was RC5; new info is 2.0.0 784 ). Have to manually edit out the old and type in the new each time.

    G4WJS: I can confirm this is a regression defect in v2.0.0, it is fixed for the next release. Until then both the power and comments field in the "Log QSO" window will not be retained even if the checkbox option to do so is checked.

  3. John, I get a error message about a LOTW SSL/TLS support or so when starting. Error LOTW users data is the header. Any idea? 73, Bas
