Not decoding CW

I am trying to copy W1AW and all I get is garbage. I've got the squelch off, I have a strong signal, and all I get is line after line of random characters. I am running FLDIGI on OS X and I'm using a Kenwood TS-2000 with a Signaling USB. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Raspberry Pi

Hi all,

Does anyone know if the Raspberry Pi will run on Puppy?  Or will the FLDIGI for Puppy run on Raspberian?

Fldigi problem to get PTT and control transceiver same time

Hallo members,

iam using fldigi on Ubuntu 14.10 with my Kenwood TS-870s.

My digimode modem emulate 2 serial ports.

I am not able to use them the same time to control cat commands and get ptt.

Only cat with hamlib or only ptt is ok but not both.

I tried a lot to get it work but nothing works.

Now i hope to get support or a good idea here.

Thanks Achim

Updated QSSTV coming for Fedora

I know typically it's the FLXXX programs discussed here but since there isn't exactly a dearth of SSTV programs available for Linux some may be interested.

I've just submitted updates for QSSTV for Fedora 20, 21, 22 (branched) and EPEL 6 & 7 which haven't been updated in some time. Since 8.X digital SSTV (DRM) has been supported.

Problem with flrig and IC-7200

When I start up and configure and initialize flrig with the IC-7200 it has started putting
the radio into a strange state.  In this state there is an audio tone in the output that is
unrelated to whatever the radio is tuned to.  Resetting the radio makes it go away
until the next attempt to configure flrig.  Someone else has reported the same problem
on the IC-7200 list. 

Is there a way to capture what is being sent to the radio?

OT(?) - And yet another issue (Windows 7)

I tried running fldigi in my virtualbox Windows 7 guest (64 bit) but can't get my Prolific USB serial port cables to work. They work fine in the linux host and the virtualbox Windows XP guest (32 bit) though. In Windows 7, I get some cryptic message about the cabling when I select the cables like I normally do. It looks like everything is set up OK for the Windows 7 guest. It's weird because when I select both COM1 and COM2 I get a VB error message and then I do a ls /dev/ttyUSB* and they are no longer present. I don't see any error messages with dmesg concerning this issue. I wish I could b e more descriptive of the problem. And it's not a fldigi issue. Obviously, I can't talk to the radio with Windows 7 - Windows XP works just fine.

VirtualBox message:

I don't know what happened to fldigi

The last thing I remembered was restoring the ~/.fldigi directory and now I get this output when trying to launch fldigi-3.22.05 on 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04. I tried to re-install fldigi but it wouldn't work anymore (it was working before restoring the .fldigi files). So, I renamed .fldigi to .fldigiold and got it working again. The question is why would restoring the .fldigi files from the backup mess things up? But, it's been my experience that you can't trust the backups even though we're constantly hammered to backup our files. Anyway, I'm going to try restoring the rest of the info one at a time and see if things get corrupted again.

psk on linux computer

Hi I am trying to run psk on a linux machine I have downloaded flidgi and can set it up but I can not get the computer to talk to the radio. I am used to windows where I know have to add a new device but I have been trying to work out how to connect the interface and get the computer to acknowledge it all afternoon and can not find the answer. I am using a USB to serial converter and a M0aqc interface the computer is a Toshiba and the transceiver is a Kenwood TS120V. The USB serial converter came with a cd disc but it only works for Mac and windows. The software I am running is Linux Mint. When I start up flidgi the waterfall screen is black with no signals on it. any help advice would be much appreciated.
