Runnning Linux on Raspberry PI [1 Attachment]

I am having trouble running FLdigi on my Raspberry Pi using of course

Linuxham. I'm wondering what sound card people are running, as I get

the results as shown on here in another screen shot, but the cq call must

be going out as it changes from bottom screen to top screen, from back to red.

I attache a photograph of the sound card, but have been told the best results

are via a daffodil that I've ordered. Does anyone used the one I've attached

and if so what or how do you configure the sound card.

FLDIGI Not Storing Sound Card Config

Well, I said I was having two issues with my load of FLDIGI v3.23.10.02. The first was covered under rig control, the second has to do with recognizing and saving the sound card card configuration. 

Platform: Raspberry Pi2 running Debian Jessie v March 2016

Application: FLDIGI v

Radio: Icom IC-718

Audio Interface: Tigertronics SignaLink USB

lsusb returns:  Bus 001 Device 006: ID 08bb:2904 Texas Instruments PCM2904 Audio Codec

When FLDIGI is opened, there is no waterfall display even with receive noise. After opening the Sound Card Configuration tab, the PortAudio box is checked ; Playback: USB Audio C odec: -(hw:1,0) ; but Capture is blank. When I select the  USB Audio Codec: -(hw:1,0) for the Capture, it starts displaying the waterfall and decoding. I then hit the Save button and close. When I close out of FLDIGI, I confirm the change to the Config file on closing. The next time I open FLDIGI, it has "forgotten" the changes to the Sound Card Config tab and again I can not receive or decode until reselecting the USB Audio Codec.

After running "fldigi --debug-level 3", the following lines were captured:

Por tAudio Devices:

bcm2835 ALSA: - (hw:0,0)

bcm2835 ALSA: IEC958/HDMI (hw:0,1)

USB Audio Codec: - (hw:1,0)





Why would FLDIGI be forgetting or resetting the changes that I made to the config file?

FLDIGI Rig Control for IC-718

I realize this topic has been covered in previous conversations, but each one appears to be on different platforms, different OS, different radio, etc., which seems to bring its own set of different issues. I am having two primary issues with this load, but will cover them in separate topics. This one is primarily for Rig Control.

Platform: Raspberry Pi 2 running Debian Jessie version March 2016

RPi Interface Port Assignment: /dev/ttyUSB0

Applications: FLDIGI v3.23.10.02 ; FLRIG v1.3.25.16 ; HamLib v3.0 (installed but not used)

Radio: Icom IC-718 ; CI-V addr: 5E ; 9600baud 

Radio Interface: USB/Serial converter cable

From lsusb:  Bus 001 Device 005 ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL230 3 Serial Port

Hamlib option is checked in the Rig Control tab of the config window, all settings confirmed to be Rig: IC-718 beta ; Device: /dev/ttyUSB0 ; DTR+12 and RTS+12 checked ; Baud: 9600 ; StopBits: 1 ; Sideband: Rig mode

Problem: When the Hamlib option is checked and Initialize is pressed, the Hamlib option deselects and no rig control is possible.

In order to confirm the serial to USB converter and the radio CI-V port were functioning, the radio was connected to a Windows Vista laptop computer also running FLDIGI v3.23.10.02. Device: COM4 ; 9600baud ; 1 Stopbit.  With this configuration, FLDIGI properly displayed the radio frequency and had full control of the 718, proving the CI-V radio port and the UBS/serial cable conver ter was operating properly.

Reconnecting the radio to the Pi, I ran FLRIG. Following settings were made in the Config Window:

Rig: IC-718 ; Ser.Port: /dev/ttyUSB0 ; Baud: 9600 ; RTS+12 v & DTR+12 v checked ; all retry, poll, and interval timers left at default. 

FLRIG immediately connected to the radio, displaying the correct frequency and radio settings. This indicated that FLRIG was working with the Pi and its USB port for full control. 

Problem Restated: FLDIGI will not initialize the control connection with the IC-718 via the Pi2. What am I missing? I did run the "fldigi --debug-level 3" command string and copied the results into a text file. One line of results was:

I: testCommPorts: Found serial port /dev/s erial/by-id/usb-Prolific_Technology_Inc._USB-Serial_Controller-if00-port0

Following all the I: setConf: setting "xxxxxx" to "xx" for the flrig configurations, I got:

I: hamlib_init: Failed freq test

I: initInterface: defaulting to no xcvr control

So, what am I missing. I am a humble novice at Linux and this is driving me crazy (short trip). Any help would be appreciated.

Andy's Ham Radio Linux: v19 released

Hi everybody,

Version 19 of "Andy's Ham Radio Linux" has just been released.  There are two versions:  32-bit and 64-bit.  It is based on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, and contains minor updates to a lot of ham radio software, including the very fine "FL Family"of software, which includes fldigi, fllog, flnet, etc.

"Andy's Ham Radio Linux" can be downloaded from Sourceforge:

Have a lot of fun, and 73,

FLDIGI Macros working with SignaLink USB Erratically

I just installed SignaLink USB to work with my Kenwood TS570 and my iMac (El Capitan). My software is FLDIGI 3.23.09 and FLRIG 1.3.24. It works well except for one very annoying problem. 

The problem is that sometimes when I click on a FLDIGI macro (e.g. calling CQ) I hear the squeal of my audio signal on the radio speaker and neither SignaLink nor the radio go into transmit mode. If I immediately stop the macro and click it again, it works fine. This is the case with all of the macros. The problem seems to occur most often when the macro has not been used for a few minutes - but this is not always the case. For example, after being away for about 4 h ours I just sat down to the iMac, fired up the radio, FLDIGI and FLRIG and clicked the "CQ" macro and it worked first try. Then I clicked on the "ANS" macro and I got the audio tone on my radio speaker and neither Signaling nor the radio went into transmit. Each macro appears to work fine on the second try.

I'm guessing that the problem may be somewhere in my iMac sound settings, but I don't know where or what.

Any help would be appreciated.

KISS access to Fldigi

Greetings, all.

I'm trying to figure out how to connect my APRS application to fldigi so I can take advantage of its error-correcting modems for more reliable communications, but I'm have some difficulties.

Background: I am running fldigi 3.23.08 and flrig 1.3.24 on a Mint 17 (Ubuntu Linux) operating system on an HP laptop. The soundcard and radio is an Icom IC-7100 using the USB connection for both sound and CI-V PTT control. I use this setup routinely in a weekly NBEMS net.

I have added a port driver to my APRS application YAAC to send KISS UDP datagrams to the fldigi configured KISS port and listen to receive datagrams on the fldigi configured dual port. I can see responses from sending hardware command frames (such as the MODEML command to get a list of KISS-capable modes). Also, my beacon packets show up in the receive (not transmit) text window in fldigi (properly decoded), but fldigi never lights the Tx button.

Also, flrig suddenly will not talk to the USB serial port on the 7100; attempts to configure it switch the serial port field in the Config Transceiver dialog to NONE and report a serial port unavailable error in flrig's debug log file. I occasionally have this problem when fldigi is in ARQ mode, but always have it when in KISS mode and the usual fix (deleting flrig's configuration file and reconfiguring it from scratch) doesn't work. I even have to unplug and re-plug the USB cable from the 7100 to restore functionality when I return to ARQ mode.

Any ideas why flrig won't work in fldigi KISS mode? Is KISS mode even useful for anything? Also, is conventional AX.25 Bell 202 packet modem mode available in fldigi? In reading the fldigi source code to figure out how to connect to the KISS port, I noticed there were code fragments referencing 300, 1200, and 2400 baud packet, but they were commented out and incomplete. Was packet mode never finished, or is it being taken out?

If there is any additional information needed to troubleshoot this, please let me know. 

Thanks in advance.

Help files for Windows

I see there is a fldigi.x.xx.xx.help.zip  file in addition to the pdf help file.
I presume these files in the zip are for the Windows help system, but where
are they to be installed?  I'm pretty iggorant when it comes to Windows.

apt-get after fldigi install question

After a successful install of fldigi on my pi-3B, I’m wondering if I’m in danger of overwriting the
newly minted fltk or any of the other files modified or generated during the install process by doing an
'apt-get update > apt-get upgrade’?

fidigi rig control

When I chose hamleb for rig control and click on the "use hamlet" and click "initialize" it takes the check box off.  Any suggestions?
