FW: HFAUTO Version 3.9.3.0 Released - Support for N1MM, DXLAB, Logger32, FLDIGI + FLDIGI_UDP Tested

Dear HFAUTO and Logger32 Users:

 

HFAUTO Version 3.9.3.0 Released - Support for N1MM, DXLAB, Logger32, FLDIGI + FLDIGI_UDP Tested

 

Logger32 broadcasts a UDP packet in a similar format to N1MM+ and DXLAB containing RadioInfo – Frequency information, on port 12061, just one number above the default N1MM+ port.

As far as I know, this port number is NOT configurable in the INI file.

The HFAUTO software now decodes this properly.

 

To enable this from the Logger32 Side…

Use the Setup Menu, Frequency Item…

 

Check the Enable Frequency Change UDP Broadcast CheckBox

 

To enable this from the HFAUTO Side…

Edit the [Network] section of the configuration file.

Add a receive port for 12061:

; Broadcast UDP Addresses and Ports

UDP_Broadcast.0=127.0.0.1:13080          ; To ALS-1306

;UDP_Broadcast.1=127.0.0.1:14080         ; To RCS-8/10 (This Computer Only)

UDP_Broadcast.1=127.0.0.255:14080 ; To RCS-8/10 (All Computers on LAN)

 

; UDP Receive Ports for IP=0.0.0.0

UDP_Receive.0=12020               ; From FLDIGI

UDP_Receive.1=12050               ; From RCS-8/10

UDP_Receive.2=12060               ; From N1MM

UDP_Receive.3=12061               ; From LOGGER32

UDP_Receive.4=12070               ; From DXLAB

UDP_Receive.5=8000                ; From W1TR Rig Control

 

; User Defined CAT Control Properties

USER.CAT_Source=UserCAT                  ; Source Name: User Defined CAT

USER.XML_DocName=USERDOC          ; XML Document: Name User Defined CAT

USER.XML_FreqField=FREQ                  ; XML Freq Field: User Defined CAT

;===============================================================================

 

Since Logger32 only broadcasts a UDP packet when the frequency changes…

I recommend you set the CAT TIMEOUT to ZERO, thereby disabling the timeout and notification that CAT CTRL has been lost (default is 20 since N1MM broadcasts every 10 or so seconds).

I also recommend to the developer of Logger32 that this UDP packet be broadcast at least every few seconds even if there are no changes, say every 5, 10, or even 20 seconds.
