Re: [KenwoodTS-590] TS-590S Firmware Update 1.08 to 200


Thanks Bostjan for the right link.  As a Mac user the Windows stuff is nonstandard to me but I managed to get the ARCP-590 updated to version 2 and my TS-590s firmware is now at 2.0.  I did have issue at first with the frequency display on my fldigi setup being hosed but a restart of the Mac fixed that issue.

Firmware V2.0 live and seems to be working great. I rally like the new Spit function and the TX monitor is now normal rather than too loud

Thanks again

I managed to find, install and update the ARCP-590 to Version 2.0 and to backup my settings.

The same page at Kenwood


talks about the firmware update but there is no link to download the firmware.

Can someone give a URL to download the firmware update?

What USB sound card are you using?

Knowledgeable folks:

I'm looking for the smallest form factor/lowest power USB sound card that works with fldigi in a Linux environment.


Linux Support

fldigi support

Power consumption

Tiny form-factor

Last, and least (not) important: Cost

If you have links to your suggestions handy, please include them in your response.

Thanks in advance,

Fldigi CAT control from a Mac to IC-718

I would like help setting up Fldigi 3.22.05 so it will run my IC 718. I have SignaLink USB, and a CV cable, I cannot not remember the complete name.

Thank you,

fldigi on an embedded system?

This is cross-posted to Win-fldigi

Does anyone have experience running fldigi on an embedded Linux system? (RaspberryPi, Beagle Board, etc.)

If you do, or if you have done something similar, please let me know. I'm about to embark on a pretty significant project and I'd like to start out in the right direction...

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

running fldigi in a 'headless' environment

Hello all - 

I'm curious if anyone has run fldigi in a headless environment. I'd lke to run it on a specialized embedded system using a USB sound card. Can it be used with x-terminal or run from a command line or shell?

I anticipate using notify and macros to facilitate a semi-automated beacon/QSO.

FLdigi Waterfall not functioning in Puppy V6

I see that Dave recommends installing his latest Linux Fldigi in Puppy V5.7.1
Did that and it works fine. Then I decided to install it in the latest Puppy, V6. It installs OK BUT the waterfall is not functioning. It's black. I also notice that if I  run the UZ7HO Sound Modem on Puppy V6, under Wine, it's waterfall is also not functioning. I suspect the problem is to do with a Puppy V6. incompatibility

It seems or I will find out very near future(I got Fedora 21 server on order). Workstation requires to work with server ( iam guessing at this point). When I get server; I will let you folks know.

Fldigi 3.22.04 and PSK500R

If I configure Fldigi with PSK500R, Channel window hidden and Signal navigator shown, at next startup Fldigi crash. After removing fldigi.prefs fldigi start, obviously with default prefs.

Setting only PSK500R and channel window hidden or any other PSK mode don't show the problem.

Same behavior with 3.22.05 version self compiled
