I just joined this list and found this in the archives...

I'm looking at the power level right now. I think there may be an XLog
bug as well as a hamlib bug. In addtolog_or_qsoframe:

  qso[POWER] = g_strdup_printf ("%d", state.rigpower * 256 / 100000);

and in on_powerbutton_clicked():

  rigpower = g_strdup_printf ("%d", state.rigpower * 256 / 100000);

the state.rigpower is being scaled by 256/100000, but in get_powerlevel():

  retcode = rig_get_level (myrig, RIG_VFO_CURR, RIG_LEVEL_RFPOWER, &val);
  if (retcode == RIG_OK)
    status = rig_power2mW (myrig, &state.rigpower, val.f, state.rigfrequency, 

the value that is being scaled is provided by hamlib's rig_power2mW,
which should be a value in milliwatts, and shouldn't require scaling
(other than perhaps to convert to watts).

Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

73, Brian
