Arghh!   Emails arriving out of sequence while I'm traveling.

All noted David.   Didn't know UZ7HO's offering was a product of Delphi.  I know 
that environment well and have used D7 a lot in the past, but yes it's Windows 
only, but it is very good.  (Knocking spots of other IDE's.)

"Lazarus" (a cross platform "Delphi like" IDE) shows a great deal of promise, and 
I have successfully ported a few of my own creations to that, with success.

The late Julian Moss's "KCom" (Elekraft K Line rig control/loging/digimode tool) 
is written in Lazarus (and uses Fldigi) and I have successfully compiled and built 
that in Laz' myself, on Windows at least.   (I've yet to get Lazarus and all it's 
dependancies installed on any Linux machine, before I try to repeat that in a 'nix 
environment.)

It sounds like RPR is in the same ballpark (some say) as D-Star and MOTO-TRBO 
(DMR.)   But...  At least D-Star is documented in odd places, and there are now 
other third party zero or low cost ways to use it, so that particular feline is 
virtually out of it's bag.

Likewise MOTO-TRBO (DMR) is a fully documented ETSI open standard.

Try it without the # sign.  When I ran the test with QRZ (that worked) I did not have a leading # in the password. That may be something unique to MLDX as I am not aware of any fldigi requirement for a leading #.  Does your QRZ password begin with a #?

Let us know if this helps

RTTY -- custom setup?



Fldigi 3.22.01 (Win7).  Op Mode -> RTTY -> Custom  -- brings up the RTTY modem configuration screen but I don't see any way to select
a custom baud rate/ shift / #stop bits / #data bits. Been a while since I used fldigi, but I can clearly remember being able to do this on earlier
versions.

What have I missed here?
Thanks,

Re: Additional mode request for discussion.



Hi again.

Sorry, but if people would read ALL the email, they'd realise I already know about jPSKmail etc.

My question is, would it be possible to have the OFDM RPR modem implemented within Fldigi in the future.

Google RPR OFDM.

Regards

Dave G0WBX.

Still no qrz



Hi all,

I have done all the usual troubleshooting, but I still cannot get QRZ or any other cluster to populate the Fldigi window .

It sends, receives and logs just fine.

Any more ideas?

Aditional mode request for discussion.

Hi All.

Having recently (yesterday) updated the shack PC to Fldigi 3.22.01 with no 
(yet) issues, after exploring the new modes, an idea occurs...

It would be good I think, if Fldigi could also "do" HF packet, as a KISS or AGW 
linkable modem.   300baud AFSK should not be too dificult to implement 
perhaps, there are other tools to do that already (DireWolf and UZ7HO's 
excelent soundmodem.)

However, DireWolf has no tuning aid (in the absence of any valid signals) and is 
fussy to run on more recent issues of Windows.   It's a bit of a dog to setup 
correctly on Linux too.  But it is open source, so perhaps the modem codec etc 
could be "lifted" and grafted into Fldigi?   We'd then get a capable decoder, with 
a good tuning aid (The waterfall.)

UZ7HO's offering runs extremely well on Windows, but AFIK there is no Linux 
version, nor is it (I think) open source.   But it does have a very nice and easy 
to use GUI with waterfall, and uses somewhat less CPU than DireWolf (when 
compared on a machine that will run both.)

Both offer multiple "Decoders" to cater for off frequency signals, at the expence 
of CPU usage.    In fact, I suspect that thy share some common code behind 
the facade of the user interface.

However...   As far as I can find, there is no software only modem about, that 
can do RPR (Robust Packet Radio.)   This is an 8 carrier OFDM mode in a little 
under 500Hz bandwidth.    So far, Fldigi is about the closest, and with the latest 
multi carrier PSK additions, tantalisingly close perhaps.

There is lots of information on the mode if you google for "robust packet radio 
ofdm"  with links to pdf documents etc.

Currently, as far as I can find, the only option for users, is an eyewateringly 
expensive dedicated modem from SCS.  That's OK for "appliance operators", but 
the rest of us?

It'd be another feather in Fldigi's cap, if it could handle the modem side, and 
present a KISS or AGW type localhost interface to "applicaitons" (such as 
Xastir, YAAC and so on.)    Much as it can already do with jPSKmail.

For native on-screen (RX pane) use, it could just display the packet contents 
with no specific formatting, or with very basic formatting so that to/from call's, 
path and payload can be distinguished from each other.

Sending from the keyboard, should perhaps be disabled by default (but able to 
be enabled if needed.  But, perhaps let it send from within Macro's?)   No 
digipeating capability, if needed that would be handled by the attached host 
packet application.

Certainly in Europe, there is a lot of RPR and AFSK Packet activity on 30m. 
(10147.3kHz 1500hz audio signal center for RPR, while 300bd AFSK can be 
found centered 300Hz higher, with tones at 1600/1800Hz.)

What do others think?  Would this be a good or bad addition to the mode list?

Or, is there already some other program I'm not aware of yet, that can be used 
as a KISS or AGW like "RPR" modem?

73.

Dave G0WBX.

Linux and IC-7200 and TS-590 family with sound card

Can someone verify that the serial port and sound codec on these two radios either:

1. Works with no additional Linux drivers for both sound and serial on the radio's USB port.
 --OR--
2. Serial and/or audio codec requires Linux support beyond whatb is included in a typical distribution
(Debian family, Fedora family, etc.)

These questions are for a special project getting underway and they are sort of square one questions for
hardware selection.

Thanks!

Mitch

New setup/can't transmit on Fldigi



Hello,
I have been running HRD on a "bootcamped" iMac.  I decided to give Fldigi a try on the Mac side, keeping my Rigblaster P&P, CAT cable, etc, connected. My rig is an FT-450.  The program almost immediately started decoding PSK fine.  However, no matter what I try, Hamlib, PTT, RigCat....it doesn't recognize the frequency or transmit.  I even tried downloading the .xmls file to put in the rig file, but was unable to move or copy it into it.  Perhaps my lack of experience with Mac files is to blame. And I thought setting up HRD was difficult!!!  Is there a quick fix for this?
