Re: Getting up to speed on operating with fldigi?

Steve Bellner


This has nothing to do with what you are talking about however, I have a blind friend who uses a MAC. He needs help installing and operating FLmsg and FLdigi. I am not computer savvy. Would you mind if I contact you and get some help getting him operational? He does not know if it will work with MAC.

Please consider this a request to help install and get him operational.

I got my ham license just under a year ago, started using FT8 with WSJT-X exclusively, and managed to get DXCC done in about seven months. Now I'm interested in using fldigi to expand into other modes.

I have fldigi-4.1.00 installed on my MacBook Pro running Mojave, and since my IC-7300 was already set up for digital it seems to be talking to fldigi successfully (changing frequency on either changes it on the other, etc). So far I've browsed around a little with listening to CW, which seemed somewhat successful although the decodes exhibited a lot of noise.

Beyond that, I'm trying to figure out what to do next. Most of the tutorials I've run across seem to focus more on setup/configuration rather than operating. Is there anything good to read, or videos to look at, besides the essentials in the beginner's guide at For example, as just one question, what are the modes most popular with fldigi users these days, and where in the bands would I look for them?

Thanks and 73,
