Nice.

 

>and i dont really understand why google would change their software for not give us options to choose serial ports, baud rate, etc.

It’s difficult to have technical details.

i installed an older version of google earth and it works perfectly! i guess that was my issue all along. thanks for the help and info! and no, i have no idea how gps or nmea frames work or anything like that, and i dont really understand why google would change their software for not give us options to choose serial ports, baud rate, etc.

>there are still no waypoints coming into google earth,

So GE must have either change the serial port protocol or the NMEA sentences supported (Multipsk sends GLL frames). If you have some information about this, tell me.

Note: the “old” GE version works on W10. I also tested it.

i replaced MULTIPSK.EXE with the test version and renamed the old one to multiPSK_OLD, there are still no waypoints coming into google earth, but i can still see the serial data going through the port in Serial Monitor and i can see the NMEA frames coming through in NavMonPC.

yes, i can see the coordinate data through a serial monitor program and also a program called NavMonPC that can read NMEA frames. this is also the newest version of google earth that i downloaded just a couple weeks ago so if anyone else has a new setup and they want to do this, they could have the same problem with google earth not being able to read the data coming from multiPSK. ill be happy to try out the test version and see if it works, though.

It is a type of radar that uses several repetitions between 25 and 50ms (40 and 20sps) with 10kHz of bandwidth.


Test version 1 of the Multipsk version 4.44 - Modification of the GPS serial port format

Patrick Lindecker
 

Hello to all,

 

I proposed this test version 1, mainly for about the modification of the GPS serial port format: http://f6cte.free.fr/MULTIPSK_4_44_test_version_1.zip

 

Paste this address in your Internet Explorer or equivalent. Download the file.
Extract the ZIP file and replace the “official” Multipsk.exe with this test version. Before, make a copy of the “official” Multipsk.exe, in case of.

 

Several other modifications are proposed:

* addition of the sub-mode Contestia 16-250 (ajout du sous-mode Contestia 16-250),

* HFDL, ACARS, VDL2, AERO, ADSB: knots unit added (unité de noeuds ajoutée),

* ACARS positions decoding improved (décodage des positions ACARS amélioré),

* prior cleaning of the local map (effacement préalable de la carte locale),

Re: problems linking multiPSK through a virtual serial port to google earth. #Beginner

Hello,

 

>i can see the coordinate data from the COM3 port that i have selected in multiPSK

On a serial tool, not on GE? Do you confirm?

 

>click "display all" in multiPSK with GPS selected,

It is normally exclusive: either you use one way or you use the other way but not both in the same time.

 

>i think there may be a compatibility issue

Yes I agree, it’s a problem of serial port format, not accepted by your GE. I will propose a Multipsk test version with the NMEA 183 format (one stop bit instead of 2). You will tell me if it works better.

i can see the coordinate data from the COM3 port that i have selected in multiPSK, and i was also trying different things to see if anything worked. i found that if i run both programs in administrator (i am using windows 7) google earth stays on "reading com 4" (com4 is the output of the com port 3 that multipsk is using to send the data), but when i click "display all" in multiPSK with GPS selected, google earth cycles through the com ports again, then lands on com4. i think there may be a compatibility issue with the data being sent to google earth. it also seems to drop the connection to com4 sometimes and scans through them again.

Re: Sdr

Arthur,

 

In general, the problem comes from the speaker properties. Can you transmit BPSK31 (or other mode) hearing some modulation on the speaker? If not, it is a common problem of speaker properties.

Yes. I connect the rtl/sdr thru the config settings on multipsk. The sound will not come on, but otherwise the sound works fine. If I connect my scanner to the laptop and multipsk the sound is ok. It only happens when I am connecting the rtl/sdr.

Re: problems linking multiPSK through a virtual serial port to google earth. #Beginner

Patrick Lindecker
 

You could try to know if the positions are sent with some tool able to read serial ports (must be received at 4800 bauds, 8 data bits, 2 stop bits and no parity).

If you can read these GLL positions, perhaps your GE does not accept these positions due to the fact that it hopes data in another serial format (?).

If you think that the format is different from the Multipsk one, tell me, I can modify it in the program.

 

Note: there is an ambiguity about the exact format required by GE, because it is not specified (and we say here something as “Hell  is in details”). I can possibly try with one stop bit (as NMEA 183) instead two.

Have you selected the virtual serial port on the “Serial port for GPS” menu on the Configuration screen. If so, I don’t know what happens.
