fldigi manual for offline use

I use fldigi from places where I don't have internet access. Where can I download a version of the fldigi manual for offline use?

Re: [win-fldigi] Re: [HAM vs Consultant Hats] Single Carrier transmission formats sho

Sorry for being so slow in responding.  Yes, I have seen Gary's rol spin off of fldigi.  In fact I monitor Gary's work and back port items that either appeal to me or may be useful to a wider user base.  Some of the changes in fldigi during the past 9 years have come from Gary's work.  Do keep in mind that Gary has modified fldigi to suit his particular operating requirements.

The mode button bar looks promising, but takes up valuable dialog real estate, especially for h/w targets such as a small tablet.  I will consider adding something similar as either a separate dialog, or an optional main dialog panel.  The coding for a separate dialog is much simpler.

A single button press to open the logbook is nice, but you can achieve almost the same by using the menu short cut keys, alt-L / L.

Have you seen WB8ROL’s mod in FLDigiRol, the mode toolbar selector that is user definable? It is just what FLDigi needs IMHO.

Re: Digest Number 3425

Chuck WV8A,

Are you up and running again? If not, trash the old version and move both the fldigi_def.xml and fldigi.prefs files. Then download and install a fresh version of fldigi and start it from the Finder by using a right-click and select the open option.

Be sure you download the correct .dmg version from Dave’s web page

Good luck!

BTW, once you get it working correct I suggest you right-click on the two files mentioned above and select the Compress option. This will save a known good version as a zipped file in your .fldigi folder.  The next time something get screw up all you have to do is quit fldigi, trash the two files, click on the zipped version and you will be good to go

Rx filter bandwidth shown in frequency display - fldigi bug?

Hi Dave,

I posted about this on the linuxham list a while back, but there wasn't really
any follow up.  I thought it worth raising again, as John Ronan, EI7IG has also
noticed the same issue occurring between fldigi, rigctld and his Elecraft K3.

I've included my original posting below.

Cheers, 73 and Happy Easter!

I've noticed something puzzling recently. Running fldigi 3.22.04 (from Kamal's
repo) on Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64, I have occasionally noticed that fldigi will
apparently report the rig's Rx filter bandwidth in the frequency display,
instead of the frequency.

I have observed this in 2 scenarios. In both scenarios, fldigi is configured to
use hamlib to talk to the radio. In the first scenario, the rig is an Elecraft
KX3 and hamlib's rigctld is used. In the 2nd scenario, the rig is ghpsd3-alex's
QtRadio program emulating a hamlib rigctld, so there is no component of hamlib
actually involved.

Sometimes, but not always, adjusting the rx filter's passband width, either by
knobulating the KX3 or using QtRadio's GUI makes the frequency display in fldigi
switch to showing the filter width. I have never seen it switch back to
displaying the frequency, without reinitialising the hamlib interface in fldigi,
or restarting it. When in this state, fldigi seems to think that the filter
width is the QRG as it uses the filter width value when inserting a marker in
the received text or a spot.

I often run multiple instances of fldigi, configured to use the same rigctld
interface and soundcard, running different modems. When the filter width is
displayed on one instance of fldigi, the other continues to report the frequency
correctly. Other hamlib clients, i.e. rigctl, also are able to query the
frequency without issue.

I think this is a bug.

I'm also intrigued by the availability of the rx filter width in fldigi. How is
this intended to be used?

Cheers, 73

raspberrian AX25

Does the Raspberrian distro have the AX25 modules included?

My reason for asking: on my cubieboard I had to learn to build Debian from 
scratch to include them.  I'm using it for a software modem packet system.

FLDIGI Builds on Raspbian for RPI2

Hello All,

This needs testing by those more familiar with RPI1/2, but, I think all
the FLDIGI app builds are working correctly or at least, they are
compiling without error and for the most part, no warnings to speak of.

My tests were performed on a "new" Raspian Image (2015-02-16 Kernel
version 3.18) built through an SSH tunnel. I've also added Fluid and a
couple script dependent packages to the previous list.

Current builds are --static with hard coded optimizations, as the opt.m4
macros do not currently allow for ARMV6/7 specific flags. User
selectable options (Debug, Benchmark, etc) will be added once the base
builds are performing as expected. At some point, I'll add the ability
to build either the Git repo version or the latest Alpha build (if
available). Current builds are from the Git Repo.

To test out the builds, perform the following:

# You will need autoconf, subversion and gcc installed first:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install subversion autoconf gcc

# Install FLSDK
mkdir -p ~/Projects
cd ~/Projects

# All on one line && there's a space between
# ../flsdk-nix and flsdk-dev
svn co https://svn.code.sf.net/p/ki7mt-builds/code/branches/flsdk-nix

# Start FLSDK configuration:
cd ./flsdk-dev
./autogen.sh --with-distro=debian --enable-parallel=yes

# Run make; this may take a while to install all the pkgs

# After completion, re-run the autogeh.sh command to ensure
# all the new packages were picked up properly:
./autogen.sh --with-distro=debian --enable-parallel=yes

# If there were / are no missing packages,type:
sudo make install

# At the prompt, type:

From there, you should be able to run the version check and build all
the apps; if all went as planned ;-)

If possible, please let me know if you hit any problems, the apps don't
work or something isn't clear.

Cat commands for Kenwood 2000

I was wondering how Ham Radio Deluxe talk to the 2K. Are they using cat commands?

Re: [win-fldigi] Re: Can't get 3.22.06 to work on a Vista machine

Please test this alpha version for correction to:
  • proper access to USB audio devices (SignaLink-USB) on VISTA.
  • multi-carrier PSK mode overdrive

Image shows testing on Vista (with latest OS updates) using SignaLink-USB audio and FT-950 via USB-serial device.

Report test results to the yahoo group.

I had the same problem - issue listed with heading “Port Audio Error - Invalid number of channels”.  But I did have the same issue with 3.22.05.  I was in the middle of using it - had worked quite a number of stations when it just stopped.  Tried all sorts of things, including upgrading to 3.22.06 but getting the same error - Port Audio Error - invalid number of channels.

I fired up a Win8 machine with the same settings and it works fine.  If you get a work-around, would love to hear about it.

I just finished a full test of 3.22.06 on XP, Vista, Win7 and Win8.  The h/w is setup is identical since I swap all of the USB devices using a hub.  The sound card is the same as yours, the SignaLink-USB.

3.22.06 is flawless on all but Vista.  On Vista, fldigi does recognize the device, but fails to properly connect to the driver.  The issue is the number of channels being accessed.  A change was made from 3.22.05 to 3.22.06 to allow either the right or the left channel to be used as the audio input.  The USB codec driver on Vista is behaving differently than all other Windows versions.  It is refusing to allow a connection in the stereo (2 channel mode).  Your guess is as good as mine.  Maybe that is why there are so many different versions of Windows, with 10 on it's way.

You will need to continue using 3.22.05 on your Vista machine until I can code a work around for this particular OS version.  It's bad enough trying to target 5 different operating systems.  It gets worse when one is the class problem child.

Is anyone else seeing this problem with Vista and fldigi 3.22.06?
