fldigi and arbitrary callsign lists


I've started looking into notifications and was wondering if it was possible to
feed an arbitrary list of callsigns to check against.  In particular, I'm
looking to use the list of members of the PODXS 070 club as a trigger for

I had thought about possibly using a generic search string and calling an
external script to compare the list against, but it would be a lot nicer if it
was possible to compare against a callsign list directly.

compile error fldigi

As mentioned in another post, I'm having fldigi Alpha compile

fldigi alpha as TNC [1 Attachment]

Greetings, new member here.

I'd like to learn how to use fldigi as a KISS TNC to reduce hardware on a LinuxRMS gateway.

Currently, the plan is a Yaesu FT-2600M connected to /dev/ttyUSB0 on a Debian 8 laptop. fldigi Alpha was suggested as having TCP KISS development underway, but there are compilation problems on Debian 8, so here it is on an Odroid XU4 running an Ubuntu 15.10 image:

However, port 7342 doesn't seem to be available after a program restart, even though ARQ port 7322 is available but not enabled:

$ lsof -nPi | grep fldigi
fldigi    11172 me   31u  IPv6  980657      0t0  TCP [::1]:37003->[::1]:6010 (ESTABLISHED)
fldigi    11172 me   32u  IPv4 1199548      0t0  TCP *:7362 (LISTEN)
fldigi    11172 me   33u  IPv4 1199550      0t0  TCP (LISTEN)

I'll need TCP port 7342 for ax25 kissattach if I understand correctly. What am I missing, please?

Fldigi, PulseAudio and Pi

    can anyone give me a little inspiration on the following problem?

I compiled fldigi 3.23.06 on a Raspberry Pi 2 which is attached to a Pi 7" touch screen display. I then attach this through a Tigertronics Signalink USB to my Icom IC-718.

When I set fldigi to use Pulseaudio the receive waterfall appears 'deaf' and I cannot get any Tx audio out. It also appears that the waterfall is smeared and I cannot see strong carriers that I can easily hear.

If I set fldigi for Portaudio with the 'Capture' set as pulse and 'Playback' set as pulse I can now see incoming signals at a reasonable volume setting on the interface and can transmit correctly.

The build flags for fldigi show Portaudio and Pulse audio and the onl y warning I get on boot which seems significant is that "Pulseaudio is configured for per-user sessions".

My user account is in the dialout and audio groups.

The Signallink works correctly on my laptop using Pulseaudio.

I'm reasonably happy that I now have a project that works but a little frustrated that the setup isn't 'right' so wonder what I should have done differently. Any thoughts?

Frequency Calibration of TS-590 using fldigi

The following is a URL to a screen shot showing a quick way to check the frequency calibration of your TS-590S
or TS-590SG using the fldigi "Frequency Analysis" mode option.  Once checked you can then use fldigi to
calibrate the TS-590 vs. the listen to the tone method in the Kenwood TS-590 Manuals.


- The first thing I did was to tune the TS-590SG to the 10.000.000 MHz WWV in USB mode, then tuned down 1.000 
using the Mic buttons to get the display on the TS-590 and fldigi to show 9999.000.  The reason for tuning
down 1.000 was to make it easier to hear the tone.

- I then changed the fldigi "Op Mode" to Frequency Analysis.  Note how fldigi displays this mode
“ANALYSIS” in the lower left. Note the screen shot shows I use a 1000 Hz offset in the lower-middle menu
bar using the adjusters on each side.  I use 1000 Hz for my fldigi "Sweet Spot" setting for CW, RTTY and PSK
rather than 1500 Hz used by some for other rigs.

- The WWV tone will show up as yellow line and the accuracy is displayed in the counter on the bottom menu bar.
The screen shot was taken after I adjusted the SO-3 TXCO POT to get the yellow tone under the red marker or to
get the counter close to 10 MHz. With an absolutely perfect calibration fldigi counter would display
10000000.00. In the screen shot shows mine at 10000000.16 and it was jumping around a little. I tweaked the
SO-3 POT until I got the counter close to 10 MHz

- If you cannot hear the 10 MHz WWV tone, depress the “MHz” (just to the lower right of the 590’s VFO
knob) and use the Mult-Ch to step up to 15 MHz.  Be sure to push the MHz button again when finished.

- The frequency of my stock TS-590SG was OFF until i added the SO-3 TXCO and I then had to adjust the SO-3 to get
the tone right under the red 10 MHz marker. I found it easier to tune the pot watching the fldigi counter
change. It was not easy because the POT in the Kenwood SO-3 is REALLY touchy and it is hard to get the counter
numbers to settle. The Kenwood provided SO-3 plastic adjustment tool was way too big and was useless. I
used a small jeweler’s screw driver and it worked fine.

- You can use fldigi to check the calibration; however, if you want to calibrate the frequency, you have to
remove the bottom cover to reach the SO-3 calibration pot.  I had the TS-590 on the bench upside down with the
bottom cover pulled back to expose the SO-3 pot because the touchy counter numbers change with the cover removed.

Having a real frequency counter may be better but fldigi does a good job and the price is right.

Try it, you may like it.

Ps: Don’t forget to change your fldigi mode setting when finished testing or adjusting.

FLAMP 2.2.03 not opening on RPi 3

I just set up my RPi3 and installed FLDigi,FLMSG and FLAMP.
FLDigi and FLMSG will open. FLAMP does nothing.
Followed instructions from "Documentation/HOWTO/BuildOnPi3 – fldigi".

After 1 install failed of AMP to start. I reinstalled again. I figured I did something incorrect.
Still no start.

What shall I try next?

Fldigi 3.23.08

Hello All:
using Fldigi 3.23.08 and skywave linux notice that fldgi will transmit 
lets say psk-31 at the correct speed the next time it transmits way too 
fast. There must be a bug using skywave linux anybody have this problem. 
works fine on mint 17.3

Thanks Chris/N8EWX

I am using FLdigi and have noticed a peculiar operation when I incorporate the macro:


I have that in my CQ macro to prevent having the RxID on and accidentally tuning off frequency to another station who has transmitted a TxID between my CQs.

What I see happening is an alternate action of the function instead of the absolute function like the:


macro.  I see the RxID on for one CQ transmission and then off for the next transmission and so on.

I don't remember that happening in the past, and I do see some change in the indication on the upper right screen on the RxID button.  This action may have started about the same time the appearance of the RxID button changed.

I do have severa l commands in a row on the first line of my CQ macro:


I don't think this is the intended action of this macro command.

Fldigi - TS2000 Rig Control Problem

I just replaced my aging desktop with a newer computer - A Sony Vaio. I 
installed Debian jesse because it has a good selection of Ham Radio 
packages in it's repositories.  My old computer ran Slackware and FLdigi 
has worked like a charm on it for many years.

Well, FLdigi comes up and runs well on the Sony, but I have no rig 
control, using either Hamlib or RigCat.  I'm using a Keyspan 
Serial-to-USB adapter. Fldigi recognizes the Keyspan. I setup the same 
communications configuration that I have on the Slackware machine for 
the TS-2000, but no joy.  I use a SignalLink USB for the soundcard and 
it works fine. I can take the USB cable for rig control out of the Sony 
and plug it in to the old desktop, and now I have rig control, so that 
proves the transceiver and the Keyspan are functional.

I've added myself to the "dialout" group, but no help.  I'm fairly new 
to Debian, and I've most likely missed something.  Anybody got any ideas 
to try?  I guess the next thing to try would be to install Slackware on 
another partition and hope that works.  Maybe there is something that 
needs to be set in BIOS?

Anyone got any ideas?

OSX, fldigi and ALC

Hi everyone - 

I can't seem to figure out how to adjust the output volume from fldigi on my Mac. I have played around with the volume sliders in the OS and with the midi settings but nothing seems to adjust the volume when I press 'tune' in the fldigi app. Any suggestions? How do you Mac users make sure you are not overdriving the transmit audio (disabled ALC)? 

My setup is: 
FT-991&nb sp;
fldigi 3.23.05 
Operating System: Yosemite v10.10.5 
Hardware: Mac Mini (late 2012) 
Direct USB 
Transmitting into an MFJ -267 Dummy Load/Wattmeter 

Thanks in advance,
