Re: Sound Card Problem

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello Mike,

 

This error message comes from Windows which “complains”. In general, there is some problem with the sound card, not related  with another program using this sound card.

 

Does this sound card works with another program?

Re: MULTIPSK & SDRdx & VDL mode

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello Tiziano,

 

About SDR play receivers and SdRdx, from the manual, see below (and particularly what is highlighted in red).

 

73

Patrick

- If the "SDRplay" button is pushed, for any SDRplay receiver, the I/Q signal is taken from the key through the "rsp_tcp.exe" TCP/IP server. According to my tests, the "rsp_tcp.exe" server works with Windows 10 and, possibly, with previous versions (Vista for example), this depending on the files missing and to be downloaded from Internet. It needs a powerful PC. The sampling frequency is initially 250 KHz, then it is switched to 1 MHZ for all modes except for ADSB for which it is using a 2 MHz sampling frequency.
The defaut TCP/IP parameters are given below (they can be changed by pushing on the "Options (port/address)" button):

  • The address is the local loop one: 127.0.0.1
  • The port is the 1234 one.
  • The default rsp_tcp.exe version is the 1.0 one.

Moreover, the "+Speaker" may be pushed, to listen to the demodulated sound.

The "Transceiver" window on the "RX/TX" screen permits to control the frequency and the gain (see Transceiver).

To make this interface possible, several files are located in the Multipsk directory:

  • mir_sdr_api.dll
  • msvcr100.dll
  • pthreadVCE2.dll
  • vcruntime140.dll
  • rsp_tcp.exe (thanks to F4FHH Nicolas and SDRplay)

Moreover for the rsp_rcp.exe version 1.1 (thanks to SDRplay), compatible with SDRUNO V.1.4 (using API 3.07 instead API 3.06), and particularly aimed to make work the RSPdx model:

  • msvcr110.dll
  • libpthread.dll
  • sdrplay_api.dll
  • rsp_tcp_V_1_1.exe (rsp_tcp.exe version 1.1 renamed to distinguish it from the rsp_tcp.exe version 1.0).

Associated with "rtl_tcp.exe" and "SDRplay", by pushing on the "Options (port/address)" button, it is opened a box in which it can be changed:

  • the IP address: the standard local IP address is 127.0.0.1. For a distant server, paste the server WEB IP adress,
  • the port: the TCP/IP port used, by default, is the number 1234, but it can be changed with the spin button, from 1231 to 1250. So several occurrences of Multipsk can be started, each one connected to a server and so to a different receiver. For this, the PC must be very powerful,
  • the rsp_tcp.exe version used, either 1.0 by default, or 1.1 by clicking on the "rsp_tcp V.1.1" button.

By clicking on the "RSP2 bias-tee", the bias-tee (4.7 V / 100 mA max at the ANT-B antenna output) of the SDRplay RSP2 (and RSPduo) can be set ("On") or reset ("Off"). Note that this option is not stored, by precaution. So, it will be necessary to configure this option at each Multipsk start-up.

About the RSP2 and RSPduo models (with the rsp_tcp version 1.0) :

If the direct interface with Multipsk does not work (with an error message), try this procedure (thanks to Christian and Fred):

1. start "rsp_tcp.exe -E" (from the Multipsk folder), with, for example, the "SDRPlay_RSP2.BAT" batch file in the Multipsk package.
Note that it can be added the parameter "-P0" = PORT A (default) or "-P1" = PORT B or "-P2" = HIz

2. start Multipsk,

3. press on the "SDRplay" button and, possibly, on "+Speaker" to listen to the demodulated sound

4. press on the "RX/TX screen" button

About the rsp_tcp.exe V.1.1 (rather aimed to the RSPdx model):

Push on the "Options (port/address)" button and then on the "rsp_tcp V.1.1" button.

It permits to directly make work all the SDRplay receivers RSPdx and probably RSPduo (but also the RSP1, RSP1A and the RSP2 and RSPduo models but control problems on the port selection), but it needs the installation of SDRuno version 1.4.

For more information, look at the Mike (KA3JJZ) WEB page:

Re: Local Maps settings

Patrick Lindecker
 

In that case, SYNOP/SHIP maps are used. So go to SYNOP/SHIP and manage the maps you want.

 

Note a map must be defined by two coordinates (INF file for UI-VIEW).

So either you import UI-VIEW maps:

8) For about the maps, Multipsk being compatible with UI-VIEW (about GIF pictures and .INF format description files), all the maps and .INF files of the UI-VIEW MAPS folder can be copied to the Multipsk MAPS folder. Then, the user will have only to import the ones he wishes according to the chapter "Management of the Maps ("Maps" button), described further on.

You can also build maps with this application: a very easy and quick way to do maps matched to the user's needs is to use the WEB application http://www.sailwx.info/maps/shipplotter.phtml. Choose an image size (pixels) of 480x360 (for a reduced window) or 800x600 (normal window). After having prepared the map you want, you have no more that to download the image file (.JPG) and the calibration file (.CLB) in the sub-directory MAPS of the Multipsk directory. Of course the mantissa of both files must be the same (for example: "France.JPG" and "France.CLB"). TKS to the SailWX WEB site for this very nice application.

Or you build your own maps (with Multipsk and "New map definition" button for the coordinates file). See the manual for details.

 

Here are some maps (but not too many, unfortunately): http://f6cte.free.fr/MAPS.ZIP

Hello,

 

For which mode ?

 

In a general way, to manage maps in APRS (PACKET) or SYNOP/SHIP, click on the “Maps” button. Click on “Help” for the manual.

 

From the manual:

 

Map: the map is displayed in a:

 

* 480 pixels x 360 pixels format in reduced display mode,

 

* 800 pixels x 600 pixels format in normal display mode.

 

The display mode can be modified with the "Reduced" button.

 

Multipsk accepts the BMP (BitMaP) 24 bits, JPG and GIF files. Hence, the format of the map can be of any size, Multipsk automatically adjusting the map so as to adapt it to the proposed format (480x360 or 800x600).

 

It is, however, advised to stretch (or to reduce) a map using the Paint software from Windows, this software allowing a very good definition of the map (using the stretch function: for example 50 % to pass from a 1600x1200 picture to a 800x600 picture).

 

The best is, of course, that the map will be directly in 480x360 pixels or 800x600 pixels. This is very easy with Paint using the selection function (the size of the selection being displayed at the bottom on the right side) and saving function.

 

The geographical North must be directed towards the top and must be vertical.

 

The red point corresponds to your location: from your personal co-ordinates or, in absence of theses ones, from the Locator as written in your personal data ("Personal" button in the RX/TX window).

 

Note: the GIF files of UI-VIEW (MAPS folder) are acceptable.

Multipsk does not use registry. The user key is a User.cod file that you must have on your PC (or perhaps saved in some USB dongle) or in the email that I sent to you (October 2012).

Hello Christian,

 

Normally, it is the station number emitting, except for almanac (and perhaps for the unknown messages shown in your snapshot).

Note: these messages are protected by check sum, so these station numbers are correct (i.e. with a very high probability).

Hello Greg,

 

It is a very curious screen. It misses the upper bar with “Multipsk V….”. Perhaps, return to BPSK31 and come back to Fax.

You can also, in the Configuration screen, load the “by default” parameters (you can before, possibly save the present parameters).
