Hamlib requires usrp - gnuradio dropped usrp package for hamlib-1.2.14 cannot build without it.

Hi,
I am one of the maintainers for hamlib on Fedora. The current version
hamlib 1.2.14 requires usrp, usrp-devel,  gnuradio provides usrp,
usrp-devel but gnuradio 3.5.0 has dropped it and Fedora 16 and Rawhide
ships gnuradio-3.5.0.
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=gnuradio.git;a=commitdiff;h=e510c1b49c0a9ebe88d08ec8064ab6e150d7fdb6#patch4

-Provides:      usrp = %{version}-%{release}
 Obsoletes:     usrp <  3.3.0-1

I'm getting dependency problems from the buildsys since there is no
usrp in Fedora 16 or Fedora 17 (Rawhide) hamlib won't build to correct
these issues. Will this be fixed?

tnx es 73 de Randy N3LRX

In fact, the USRP/gnuradio backend of Hamlib is more or less deprecated
since it was an experimental backend.
Simply disable the usrp backend in Hamlib, by NOT passing --with-usrp
to configure (or pass --without-usrp), that you should be fine.

BTW, thanks for taking care of the Hamlib packaging on Fedora.

This leads to another tangental issue.  Earlier this year I exchanged
mail with the SuSE Hamlib maintainer and he confirmed that the included
hamlib.spec.in file is not used by him.  Randy, can you confirm that you
use your own maintained hamlib.spec?  If so, I propose deleting
hamlib.spec.in from our repository and removing the rpm: target from the
Makefile.am

Nate if you remember,
I already confirmed that a few months ago.

I recall noq, Lucian.  My mistake, I thought you were handling SuSE, but
I see you're working with Fedora.  I probably need to keep a score card!

"Narrowband" FM Mode Question

Esteemed folks,

There are more and more radios supporting the 2.5 khz deviation FM, in
addition to the 5khz FM and broadcast FM.

Is it time to a a RIG_MODE_NFM to rig.h, commented to show it is
2.5kHZ and a comment that the RIG_MODE_FM has a deviation of 5khz?
 My guess is 1<<20 would be an appropriate value.

Yes, that should be considered.  As I want to keep ABI compatibility
through the next release, 1.2.15, we'll have to consider if that change
can go in or needs to wait for API 3.

Unfortunately, it is not that simple.
There may be a bit of confusion regarding the FM deviation in Hamlib.

RIG_MODE_WFM stands on its own, with its peak deviation of 75 kHz
(200 kHz spacing) or so. That's fine. On top of that, WFM may have
its own sub-carriers, so I would say it is a modulation on its own.

The confusion lies in the API with RIG_MODE_FM, which currently can
designate a peak deviation of 5 kHz (25 kHz spacing), 2.25 kHz (12.5 kHz
spacing), or 2 kHz (8.33 kHz spacing or less)...

Yet, it is not clear what Narrow FM stands for. Some people think of it 
as FM with peak deviation of 2.25 kHz (12.5 kHz spacing), some other 
as 2 kHz (8.33 kHz spacing). Let's say we create a new RIG_MODE per
deviation, we would end up with RIG_MODE_NFM_2_25 and RIG_MODE_NFM_2.
But what would happen when smaller or inbetween deviations appear?

The current not-so-well-documented meaning of RIG_MODE_FM in Hamlib API
encompasses all the peak deviations of 5 kHz and below. The actual
peak deviation is deduced from the passband width by the backend and the

Re: hamlib support of Kenwood TM-D710

Nate,

I just checked in the new backend for the D710.  It is primitive and
does not support all the features of the rig but is a start.

There is a good chance I missed a something in the checkin.  This is
my first time using git.

Welcome to the world of Git.  Like the Linux kernel, it is expansive!
Fortunately, we can get by with a small number of commands, especially
developers.  We maintainers need to know a bit more.  I'll check over
your commit and at least make certain it compiles before tomorrow's
snapshot.
