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.

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?

Struggling to get my SignaLink USB to talk to FLDIGI [1 Attachment]

[Attachment(s) from jtovet-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org [linuxham] included below]

Hello all....

I just made the switch from running Olivia on HRD on my Win7 machine to trying to run it on my new Linux Mint 17 machine.

I feel like I'm about 90% done....but I need a little help to finish the setup.

I started by simply feeding the audio from my Yaesu FT1000MP Mark V to my computer and FLDIGI is doing a great job decoding all the signals.   I already like it better then HRD.

So then I hooked my SignaLink USB to the radio and computer.   (I know that the interface works fine as it's been working great with my HRD and Win7 setup)

The challenge I'm having with it now however is that I can't get the interface to key the transmitter.   I checked off Hamlib but it won't key the rig.

My gue ss...and it's only a guess is that the interface is not accessing the correct port.   I'm a bit lost on how linux works with ports.  

Or, maybe that's not it.   I just don't know.

Is there a guide somewhere that will take me step by step so that I can get this thing working?

Any help will be truly appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

Macro MODE selection



Would it be possible to add a MACRO to select rig MODE (i.e., USB, USB-D, etc) such that within a MACRO one could go from voice (USB) to digital (USB-D) at the beginning of the MACRO and from digital (USB-D) back to voice (USB) at the end of digital without having to select form the pull down on flrig.  The ability to embed this transition within the MACRO would be a great time saver and avoid error when trying to change quickly.  This would save time and avoid having to select USB-D from pull down before sending and USB after sending.  This would especially be useful on mixed mode nets were voice and digital are both used. 

Thanks

Bruce/NN4BJ

Awesome software fl suite.

Re: Fldigi 3.22.01 crashes on exit with Mac 'Red Cross"



QSL..


I never really paid too much attention to the X when you hover on the red-dot. Sorry, I cannot reproduce the issue you described.  Let me know if you see the same thing if you quit fldigi by right-clicking on the Dock icon.

Hello all, a new member here with a question. 


I am running fldigi 3.22.01 on a MacBook Pro under Yosemite 10.10. 
I only use fldigi in receive mode with a Lowe HF-150 and it works fine until I want to exit the program. 
If I exit with File - Exit it is fine. 
If I exit the program with the 'red cross' icon, then whether I answer Yes or No to the Confirm Quit? prompt fldigi crashes with 'Fldigi Quit Unexpectedly - Ignore, Report, Reopen'. 
No big deal really but maybe something that could be fixed in a future update.
