How to link FLDIGI to my IC718



I'm having a terrible time getting FLDIGI to liink up to my Icom IC718 for rig cotrol and just to transmit. I remember having the same problems with this program using Windows, but eventually figured it out. No luck with this new OS. I have a few freinds that are Linux users but don't have the same setup like mine. Please be gentle.

Lubuntu upgrade failure (sort of)



OK.

As an experiment as much as anything, on a non critical PC, after kicking Lubuntu 13.whatever LTS to do all it's incremental updates, I was left looking at the announcemnt re Ubuntu 14.xx LTS is out.

After a clean boot to make sure all was well, and checking that there was nothing I "Needed" to do on it anytime soon, I kicked off the "Upgrade"...

After many hours (mainly because I walked away and left it, but found it needed a few confirmaiton inputs from me) it completed, so I let it reboot.

Well, it seems to boot cleanly, asks for the password that it accepts, and eventualy settles down, but to a black screen with just a mouse pointer, that moves about, but otherwise doesn't do anything.

No desktop background, no toolbar, no icons/links.    But, if you momenteraly press the (hardware) power button, it does an orderly shutdown just fine.   From the flickering telltale lights, the wifi is working too.

Other than try and find a non PAE install of 14.x that fits on a CD and do a clean install from scratch, is there any practical way to recover a working desktop?    I know the passwords, but had not specifically set it up to be ssh'd into from the LAN.

I was expecting to need to perhaps rebuild stuff like the Fl-suite from sources, and a few others, but this is odd.


Ideas anyone?   Before it gets flattened and wiped with something else?   (Yes, I have looked at the Ubuntu support list, clear as mud!)

Newbie Question on FLDIGI and Mac



I joined this group because I am hoping that in addition to the Unix theme, it is related to the Mac OS-X users, too. If not, please excuse me and point me in the right direction!


I currently am running OS-X on a 27" iMac. I use WSJT-X for JT65 and JT9 and have been using cocoaModem for PSK31 and just recently, RTTY. CocoaModem works OK, but I was told that FLDIGI offers a lot more flexibility. I also have been using MacLoggerDX for several years and like it a lot - it really suits my needs.


My question is: can FLDIGI be used to (1) pass a call to MLDX and tell it to lookup the call on whatever system the user is licensed for, and (2) tell MLDX to log the contact? I currently do this in MLDX via macros that run Apple Script commands.


Thanks, Jim / W6JHB

SGARN Multicast Problem (hopefully) Resolved

It looks good on this end. Will be on tonight, would appreciate signal 
reports.

Call: N5PVL

Locator: DM80di

Frequency: 10.142.0 or possibly 10.142.2 - 10.142.4 USB +1000 ( One of 
these, depending on ongoing activity on frequency. )

Time: 0200-1000 UTC

Mode: MT63-500L

Content: ARRL Bulletins, SGARN Txt and HTML - Emergency information
during emergencies.

Note: The best way to utilize this server is to get set up when it
starts in the evening, then let your system listen overnight and see
what you have in the morning. The first hour is usually subject to
interference that drops off later on.

Note that by tuning in for the SGARN overnight multicast, you not
only get the latest ARRL bulletins but an idea of overnight
propagation conditions on 30 meters.

More information and details about monitoring SGARN multicasts at:

http://www.sgarn.org/forum_library/index.php?topic=9.0

Comments and reception reports always appreciated.

Linux GPS time update program



I have heard that digital modes like JT65 and JT9 need extremely accurate time. What linux utilities will do this online and also using GPS in the field?

SGARN Temp QRT

The SGARN multicast transmissions on 30m will be off the air for at 
least a few days, maybe a week due to soundcard issues. If I have to 
order a new soundcard, it might take a week to get back on the air.

Will send a notice when I'm back on 30m.

Signalink and WSJTX



I'm trying to get my Signalink interface to work under Ubuntu running WSJTX and can't get any audio into the software. I've set everything to use the USB Analog CODEC but Joe's software doesn't seem to like it. Anyone found a work around?

USB INstall Procedure



I've just downloaded KB1OIQ - Andy's Ham Radio Linux package to a USB thumb drive and I'd like to install/run it from that. I already have Ubuntu installed on an internal HD with an old XP partition that is now pretty useless. Any suggestions on how to do this or a pointer to where I can find the info on line would be appreciated.

OSX 10.9.5 & RUMtrol7k-RT Connectivity



I can not connect to my 7000 from RUMtrol7k-RT v2.1. I can connect just fine from RUMlog and from all my other digital apps (fldigi, WSJT-x).
I'm using CI-V so my port is usbserial, I have Baud set to 9600 and none of the boxes checked. However I've obviously tried each one at a time and in combination. Usually the port says something like tty.usbserial but here it says usbserial only. Could this be part of the issue?
I don't get an error, it just doesn't read or write to the XCVR.

Has anyone successfully used RUMtrol with this version of the OSX?

Thanks in advance everyone.

Re: Re: HSSM-Mesh/Broadband-Hamnet [Was: FLDIGI on mint 17 won't open?]


Hello Lloyd,

I never received your original email though I did see the response to it 
from Ernest.  Anyway..

You can find it here:

Basic Apache can let people download stuff but the basic service it won't allow uploads.
You can add additional modules like WebDAV, etc. but I wouldn't call that optimal.

A Rpi is a great way to start with Linux and can do a *lot* of stuff.

Sure.. that works and a Rpi can do that though if you want to start transcoding stuff,
you'll need a lot more CPU power.

I'll be curious what you think of it!

Setting up dual monitors



I'm another newbie with a problem with Mint. I have a BFG GEForce 7800 GT OC video card (with 2 monitor outlets) installed in my PC and I'd like to be able to use 2 monitors, one with FLDIGI and the other one other programs. How can I get, if possible, the PC to recognize the card? I know about the Bios settings, and I had trouble getting the card to display on both monitors while running XP,
