In simple terms it's like a software kludge that replaces a hardware TNC.

Re: Flexnet

Fred Decker <fdecker@...>
 

Thank you Josef, you are right I have a lot to learn. :) This sounds a
lot more complicated than either just using a regular TNC (which I have)
or using the built in capabilities of Logger to connect to any of the
dozens of DX Internet sites out there. I think the only benefit of this
method is that you can connect to a LOCAL DX cluster, where with Logger it
has to be a specially setup internet DX cluster and you might not have one
that represents your area. Is this right? I have logged into some of the
default internet DX stations that come with Logger and they work just
fine.

If you or anyone else can tell me another reason why I would want to use
the "virtual tnc" method instead of what is built into logger, that would
help me understand. Thanks.

Calling CQ with CW-Interface?

Martin Hautsch <martin@...>
 

Hello OMs!

I just read that it's possible to give CW with an extern keyer.
I don't know what kind of keyer you need but is there a possibility
to run homebrewed ones like the K1EA CT interface cable?

Thanks for information!

Bob Marumba <radiobob69@...>
 

Fred you wouldnt probably want to be using virtual modems because you have full time innernet access so you can use the telnet stuff.

You see Fred, those boys in some places in Europe don't have all day all nite innernet access at a cheap price like we do here in the states. And most places in Europe packet radio is still popular and hardware stuff like a TNC are pretty darn pricey. So them German boys developed this Baycomm style modem which turned out to be a pretty darn good replacement item for a TNC. The Baycomm deal allowed a lot of the other boys over there in Europe to built their own TNC. Problem is the Baycom type TNCS aint really like a hardware TNC theys more like a dumb modem and they dont do the work in the hardware, the actual packet work has to be done inside the software program so all of them there Baycomm modems needs special softwares. They don't work with the ordinary old every day dumb terminal type programs. Plus them packet boys over there is a lot more sofisticated than we are in the states and most of them not foolin around with no 1200 bauds stuff, theys running some pretty darn hispeed networks and stuff. They say that Neccesity is somebodys mother and when you cant run to the AES catalog and buy any old thing you wants it turns you into an inventor. Or something like that. Anyway them boys in Europe builts a whole lot of their own stuff, thats why they all knows about stuff like diodes and DTRs when it comes to hooking up them Icom radios too. Them boys dont run to MFJ and buy one of them fancy radio cable things for 50 dollars like we do they just go ahead and builts there own for 50 cents. So thats why theys using packet radio instead of the telnet stuff like we is. I bet something else you didnt know too Fred. Some of them boys in Europe has to pay for innernet service by the MINUTE and they has to pay extra for every bite of email that they download. Which means that even stuff like a simple email list like this here list can cost them guys lots of money. While back them boys in Europe was talking about computers and one of them says that a 486 computer over there in some places costs more money than the avrage guy makes working at his regular job in a month! Anyhow Fred thats why theys using Baycom style modems and that virtual stuff in Europe. They needs there money for other stuff besides ham radio stuff.

Re: Flexnet

Fred Decker <fdecker@...>
 

Thanks for all the comments (you too Bubba Bob :)), and yes I do know
about European phone and internet access (their phone service is also
billed by the minute even for local calls) as I spent time on business and
vacations to Europe. I understand that all that is changing... finally.

I face my own technology limitations. I build a lot of things, but only
those things that are fun or learning experiences, or that I can't buy
cheaper on the market. I am not going to build my own TNC, but with
everything wanting a serial port (tnc, rig control, rotor control,
programming VHF/UHF radio, digital camera, gps, ad infinitum) I just don't
have the ports. That and I like to run APRS and that ties up the TNC.

Too bad the internet is replacing most of the things we use ham radio for,
but for me keeping things that work better on the computer (data related),
from things that work best on the radio (verbal, psk, cw communication),
seems to do well. That is why I like logger to use the internet
connection to get my DX spots. Only problem is that if I want to run APRS
with a TNC, I have to use a second computer with 2 serial ports if I want
it connected to data aquisition like WX hardward or a GPS.

I love seeing pictures of shacks with a wall full of radios, and 3 and 4
networked computers. Can you believe where we have taken this "hobby"?
It looks more like NORAD. :)

Thanks again to Bob for the fine program. 73 Andy (VE9DX)


Call book CD?

Roy Smith <n4byu@...>
 

i am in need of a new Call Book.
What is the best CD? The Radio Amateur Call Book or the Buckmaster?
Both are the same price from ARRL. Will both work with Logger?
I guess I have opened a can of worms with this question.
Thanks anyway.

Version 7.04

Stephen Carroll <carrollst@...>
 

Please explain the "Zakanaka SoundCard" support and what it
means to me. This looks like the only enhancement with v 7.04
release. Thanks in advance.

Re: Version 7.04

Ray McClure <w8cnl@...>
 

Steve, the logger has quite a few internal changes to support "zakanaka"
(we have got to get a shorted name) and also the up and coming RTTY program, which will also use just the sound card. Down the road a piece, maybe a CW add on. Bob is still debating this one.
The "zakanaka" has been working great here for 2 weeks now with just a few
little changes or fixes. This thing can be programed by the user in many ways to suit your tastes and what you want it to do.
I love the 36 programable macros/buffers. Running out of things to put in them. It can also be run as a stand alone PSK program for those that don't care to run logger. I look for it to be released very soon. Maybe tonight or tomorrow, (but soon).
And as always it is FREE.
I hope at least everyone tries it out.
de Ray, W8CNL.

Hi Folks.
Just found the new group and thought the support group for
Bob's Logger program had gone for ever,hi,anyway nice to know the group is
again live and kicking.
I was a member of the former group for around 8 months.
Thanks for reforming the group and good look with Hamlogger.

what is zakanaka?????????

Re: Version 7.04

Ray McClure <w8cnl@...>
 

This is just a "code" name for a brand new PSK program by K4CY
and kind of goes along with his "Logger" program.
Although "zakanaka can be run as a stand alone program also, for those that do not run logger.
Should out in the next couple of days or maybe even tonight.

"Zakanaka" is a word in a S. Africa dialect. ( I believe 2 tribes
in remote areas of Zimbawee speak it ) Defined into English, it
means "very fine", or "most excellent". ( among others ) The
general impression to be implied to the "listener" is that of a
near perfect entity. For example, it could describe a very old
rare wine, or the reception of a Nobel prize for work done by an
individual.

Re: Version 7.04

Stephen Carroll <carrollst@...>
 

Thank you for the replies about "Zakanaka". I'm still trying to
figure out how to implement the PSK31 by "sharing" the Radio COM
port used by my TS-850S w/IF-232C. Any ideas?

CW Keyer ???

Stephen Carroll <carrollst@...>
 

I use the KPC-3 for my packet cluster connection, but have a spare COM
port that could be used for CW keyer use. Is this possible without
a KAM+ or RS232 CW keyer? Wiring diagram/instructions ??? How can I
get the Logger program to key the TS-850S (which already has a built-in
keyer circuit) ??? Ideas ???
