Please note: This software is FREE to use. A 3rd party demo plugin from MonkeyBreadSoftware is included in this version to run the DDE Client, when DDE is activated sometimes a notification window fires up. I'll made this software for my logging purpose. If you'll find it useful, feel free to use, ask for new features, help and report bugs.
I believe in free software in our Amateur Radio community.
If you want to make a donation to help me buy the full version of the MonkeyBread DDE Plugin drop me a mail. Your help will be very appreciated. Thanx.
Configuration: on first run you have to set your Callsign and WWLocator on config window.
Manual is available HERE and also inside the program by clicking "Help -> Manual".

QSO extractor for WSJT-X: grab logfiles and extract QSO's. Currently working with FT8 and WSPR modes.
SWL WSJTX Logger
2 Modes available: Local File or Remote Raspberry.
Simply load ALL.TXT file from WSJT-X to extract QSO. Callsigns are unique, so only 1 QSO per Callsign per Band will be logged.
Connect to a remote Raspberry and grab QSOs.
On your raspberry, you have to install LightHTTPD server (a very simple web server) and create a folder named "archivio" on your webserver (/var/www/html/archivio) then add a simple shell script to your /etc/crontab file to perform logfile rotation.
Create a file called rotateWSJTXfiles.sh in your home directory
# LogFile rotation for WSJT-X
cartella="/home/pi/.local/share/WSJT-X/" ## Change path to match your own home directory
destinazione="/var/www/html/" ## Your Webserver root
cp $cartella/ALL.TXT $destinazione$archivio$nomearchivio
cp $cartella/ALL_WSPR.TXT $destinazione$archivio$nomewspr
rm -f $cartella$wavfiles/*.wav
ls -1 /var/www/html/archivio/*.txt > /var/www/html/archivio/files.index ## Here also change WebServer root
Make the file executable by typing: chmod +x rotateWSJTXlogfiles.sh
Now edit your /etc/crontab file and add this 2 lines:
* * * * * pi cp /home/pi/.local/share/WSJT-X/ALL.TXT /var/www/html/
0 */4 * * * pi export DISPLAY=:0 && /home/pi/rotateWSJTXfiles.sh
Explanation of crontab file:
- Every minute the ALL.TXT file will be copied into local webserver folder
- Every 4 hours WSJT-X will be stopped, logfiles rotated and restarted
By your PC side, configure SWL WSJT Logger to fit your raspberry webserver address / archive folder.
Each 4 hours you'll se a new logfile available to exctract QSOs.
Work in progress!
