Re: fldig Tip-of-the-Day for Deaf Waterfall

Dick,

Just to be accurate, when the waterfall is in PAUSE, fldigi is not deaf, 
it will still print a signal fine. It's just real hard to tune in a signal!

Otoh, I'm not sure that it makes any sense to save the waterfall drop 
speed when it is set to PAUSE. I can't think of any situation where this 
would be useful. And it certainly can by confusing. Perhaps when fldigi 
starts up is could check for it being in PAUSE and if so, set it to NORM 
or some other setting.

fldig Tip-of-the-Day for Deaf Waterfall (Rev)

This is a revised copy of my posting to the fldigi reflector as there maybe some fldigi users in other
discussion groups.

I turned on fldigi-3.21.83 to start working the two new W1AW/P stations and noticed the waterfall display
was black and fldigi was deaf to signals I could hear from the Kenwood TS-590’s speaker.  I have seen this
before but could not remember how I fixed it.

I restarted OS X 10.9.4 and fldigi-3.21.83 using my backup fldigi_def.xml file and waterfall was still
black and no signals were being decoded. I then quit fldigi and replaced the fldigi.prefs file with a
backup file and restarted fldigi. Bingo, the waterfall came alive and was working normal. 

Thanks to help from Dave, W1HKJ, in comparing the statements in the two files it turned out to be an operator
error.  I don’t usually mess with "Waterfall drop speed" options (that rotates between FAST, SLOW,
NORMAL AND PAUSE) on the bottom center of the fldigi menu bar. I must have moused on it in error and selected
PAUSE. When I quit fldigi, it wrote the PAUSE setting to the fldigi.prefs file. On the next start the
waterfall was paused, black and fldigi was deaf to incoming signals that could be heard from the TS-590S.
Mouse clicking to anything but PAUSE fixed the problem.

The tip-of-the-day is if you need to use the Waterfall drop speed “PAUSE” option be sure to return it to
one of the other settings before exiting fldigi.

There are no new rules but some of us forget and tend to revisit old rules from time to time. I hope this
tip-of-the-day reminder helps others, like me, with less than perfect memory.

Need exact syntax to call Applescript from FLDigi



Maybe I'm brain dead!


I have tried everyday I can think of to get the <EXEC> command to execute an AppleScript. I still haven't found the magic context.


I have the Applescripts in the "scripts" directory in the ".fldigi" directory in my Home directory.


For example, I've put simply:


<EXEC>FldigiLog2MLDX.scpt</EXEC>


I've also tried:


<EXEC>~/.fldigi/scripts/FldigiLog2MLDX.scpt</EXEC>


I've put:


#!~/.fldig/scripts/FldigiLog2MLDX.scpt


in the header of my Applescript.


I've also tried:


#!/usr/bin/osascript


Which I don't think is co rrect.


Neither work!


I have four sample Applescripts that I have gleaned from the Files section that I know should work and am pretty sure I know how to adapt them to my Applescript. But, I can't get any of them to execute with the EXEC macro. Put in another Macro ... which I need to do because I need to be able to get at the FLDIGI environmental variables to send to MLDX.


Please, I need some help before I go crazy.


Thanks!

Icom and Linux



Any one ever use Icom software on a Linux computer  I have asked about problems with iCom and Linux in other groups and every 1 who answered never used an icom radios at all. unless you have used cloning software from Icom  no mater what operating sys. you probably not going to understand question.The cloning software requires me to enter the comm port manually every time I try to connect to radio but I cant find that info in any menu in Linux how do I find it or tell the computer where it is at.I have used this cloning software in a windows puter and had no problims...btw I had to use wine to get software to run in Linux Ubuntu 14.04

FLDIGI and Signalink USB ?



Anyone have any luck getting Signalink USB to key up the radio? Recieve works great with nice waterfall and Cw decoding. When I try to transmit via the macros or keyboard, the Signalink and the radio acts like they are working but nothing comes out of the radio to the tuner? When I mean "act like" I mean red transmit light on the Signalink, busy light on the radio,power draw from the power supply, but no power or swr reading on the tuner going out to the antenna.

FLDigi API Question for W1HKJ



I've been working on a pet project using the FLDigi API for a couple of weeks, and have a question for W1HKJ.  Does he happen to hang around on this list?  I've built a nice library (a ruby gem, specifically) for using FLDigi as a modem, making it very easy to write ruby scripts to send and receive data (as well as control the radio).  But there's one thing I desperately need (want?) that's not in the API - the ability to read the multiple data streams as received in the Signal Browser from the API.


If you're interested in seeing the library in it's current state, the gem is here:


http s://rubygems.org/gems/fldigi


(or just type "sudo gem install fldigi" on Linux, Mac, or FreeBSD).  If you'd like the full source, etc, it's hosted here:


https://github.com/jfrancis42/fldigi-ruby


It's not 100% ready for prime time, so I wouldn't rely too much on it yet.  It's pretty stable and it works very nicely, but at this point, I can't promise that my API (heh, an API for the API) won't change.  I'm still finding better ways to do things, which often require breaking the old way.  But it works well enough to do some really useful things with, and it abstracts the FLDigi API into something much easier to use from ruby.


It might work on Windows (or it might not).  I don't own or have access to a Windows machine, so it's untested there.  It will almost certainly control FLDigi running on Windows, but I don't know if my library itself will run there or not.  I do my development on Mac and Linux.  I don't do anything deliberately to exclude use with Windows, but I also don't know what I don't know about compatibility.


FWIW, I'm open to suggestions as to additions and/or changes to the library.  I'm writing it for my own project, but I'm writing it with the intent that it's useful as a general-purpose tool to do lots and lots of things.  For example, I wrote a PropNet client with it, and it would be trivial to write an HF APRS client (which I started, then got sidetracked).

Problem Saving Macros



Properly saving macro files and negotiating the operating file system seems to be a problem with Windows users, but this might also apply to a few Linux and OS X users as well.

No joy Dave :-(

I need somehow to get your screen capture images, I guess.

The computer seems to be saving the macros, but not where they should.

After opening the flidigi configuration dialog to the macro tab, I do not
find three buttons on the bottom to check. Clearly I am doing something
wrong :-(

Fldigi and freq question



Ok rig and green display say 14081.000 and the white with black numbers freq display say 14082.539, so what frequency am I at? I would say I am transmitting/receiving at the 14082.534 spot. So if this is the case and I wanted to work a station on RTTY split, would I then set my sub receiver/transmitter to 14084.534 if the station was saying up 2? just kinda wondering...Thanks Tom K8WDX

nGenLog



Flushed with success after successfully installing N1MM under Linux Mint I thought I'd try nGenLog. It seems to install without any complaint (standard Wine install) but it wont run. No error messages, just doesn't run. If anyone anyone successfully managed to install nGenLog on Linux, please let me know?
