OmniRig is a CAT software from dxatlas.com and its config program is sort of a small box on the screen, much higher than wide. OmniRig itself will be called in the background when you have configured CAT in e.g WSJT-X, JS8Call or HDSDR ("Omnirig Rig 1"). You will be mostly fine if you use the OmniRig FT-991 ini files fresh downloaded from dxatlas.com, otherwise use mine FT-991-SA7CND.ini on http://sa7cnd.se/ somewhat updated by me. Put it in the folder C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Afreet\Products\OmniRig\

FLDIGI can not use OmniRig, so a COM port Splitter such as VSPE is needed for FLDIGI cooperation with "omnirig programs", and then you can config FLDIGI with e.g RigCAT and a FT-991 xml config file. Mine FT-991-v2.xml is enchanced, on my radio page. Put it where you can find it and link to it from FLDIGI Config - Rig Control - RigCAT.

It can be a good idea to study the FT-991 CAT Operation Reference Manual also.
With the VSPE Com port Splitter I now mention on my radio page, I can run several of the programs I mentioned above at the same time, so you could also - with some work and trials perhaps...Hope this helps, GL.

flrig support ts-440s/sat

Is anyone in the dev group working to get the ts-440s/sat to work in flrig. I have this radio and find no support for it but a lot of the other kenwood are supported

SA7CND I put in all of your settings and got Omni Rig. It still is not working. Is your Omni RIG a short little box that appears? I will  try some more. I am not sure what the problem is. 73

Ok thanks so much for that. I will try to do that. I also have HDSDR but it doesn't connect to the radio. But I know I have the settings wrong on that. I will try that. Thanks again and 73 K6BFL

Hi Brennan.
I have an FT-991 with just a USB cable to a Windows 7 laptop, and use CAT with FLDIGI and many more programs.
As you mention OmniRig, I suspect with FLDIGI you've run into the problem that 2 different programs (FLDIGI and OmniRig) can not share a COM port.

However, with a Splitter (VSPE free 32-bit) it works fine, at least for me all the time, even if it shouldn't.

As a precaution I use specific startup orders, e.g one or more of FLDIGI, N3FJP AClog, HDSDR/CW Skimmer or WSJT-X/JS8Call, all the latter using OmniRig (which is safe for sharing a COM port). My FLDIGI uses RigCAT and AClog it own scheme, and the rest OmniRig, so there are 3 users of the COM port. The more Win apps that use OmniRig, the better.

You could look at my FT-991 and FLDIGI settings at www.sa7cnd.se
If you use the VSPE Splitter, remember to turn on the rig first so USB/COM activates and then VSPE. Also, stop VSPE on the Stop button (or shut down Windows) before turning your rig off.

Good luck. 73 de Poul SA7CND

You want your data to go as fast as possible. You need to use the fastest it will go and set up your comports in device manager and in your program to all be the same.

Hello All,

Regarding the FT-857D; using the SignaLink requires two separate cables
- CAT and DATA from the computer. But, if you go with a Yaesu SCU-17
interface just one USB to the interface then two connections to the radio.

Just my quarter ha-penny. Also the SCU-17 can be used with other radios!

My baud rate is 9600 I also dont use signal link my audio  is all USB Codec I know that my settings in FLDIGI is incorrect though.

Re: Fldigi

Andy_501 <andrew.webb.501.ve4per@...>
 

I run an FT-857D and use a SignalinkUSB for audio. I set baud rate in the rig at 38,400 and leave it there. I use the yaesu CAT USB cable to control the rig from the PC. I also use the USB connection to the SignalinkUSB as the audio device when you config rigs, and audio cards in the FLdigi program. You likely have to config FLrig as well to match the port, xml device files and baud rates.

I also use PC-ALE and do the same there configure the program to use CAT for rig control and PTT and use the same comm port # and baud rate in both programs so it can be used easily just by starting and stopping the programs.

ok thanks I will try that. I use windows and a usb cable. I can decode in fldigi though and I was able to get the frequency correct on the dial but after I hooked up to WSJTX it messed up everything.

check here to get your rigs file and then put it in thew rigs folder on your PC then go to fldigi config anf select it as the rig to use.


I spent a few extra mins and just downloaded all the rigs files so I can use my laptop with any deployed installation as it were.

In FLdigi , are you using the “Rig CAT” option ? If so, do you have a .xml file for your rig specified in the CAT configuration area ? You can get the required files from the “rigs” section of the FLdigi we site .

Re: Pre-emphasis or Not for VHF digital modem tones

David Ranch
 

Hello Paul,

I think the main Fldigi list would be the best place for this qurstion since it really has nothing to do with the NBEMS type usage of Fldigi. 

Anyway, the issue of mismatched emphasis is mostly a matter of the software decoding the signals.  In a packet setup using old TNC2 hardware, the mismatch or "twist" really hurt the the decode performance.  More modern systems like KPC3s and software TNCs like Direwolf, UZ7HO Soundmodem, etc. all deal with the mismatch pretty well.  Generally speaking, all HAMs should use the right configuration but some modern radios do the WRONG thing on the "1200bps" RX pin and TX pin on the rear 6pin "DATA" jack and NOT apply the expected de-emphasis and emphasis!  Beware!

So the question of how Fldigi deals with it will generally depend on the modes you're using.  The potential risk I see is a remote station transmitting via the 6pin discriminator input at maximum levels and then a local station applying de-emphasis on the signal and lowering the high frequency levels by ~6dB. 
The wider the bandwidth, the more potential impact there might be.  I bet that the Fldigi modem will deal with the different levels just fine.

Pre-emphasis or Not for VHF digital modem tones

ad7i
 

Greetings --

I posted this a while back in winfldigi@groups.io  but didn't get much of a response, so I'm reposting it in this group.

I'm somewhat new to using fldigi at VHF.  In doing testing and observing on the air signals, I see that some VHF stations are using pre-emphasis in their transmissions and others are not, often with some of those VHF stations not aware that they either are or are-not transmitting with pre-emphasis.

The difference appears to come about because some operators inject their fldigi TX audio into the microphone jack of their VHF transceiver, because that's the only option available to them (so their signals are transmitted with pre-emphasis).  And other operators inject their fldigi TX audio into the 6 pin (or 8 pin) mini-DIN jack on the back of their VHF radio when their radio has such a jack, because it's convenient way to connect to the transceiver, and those transmissions in most cases appear to be without pre-emphasis.

For high-speed wide-bandwidth operation at VHF is there any consensus among experienced VHF fldigi operators as to whether it's better to make those transmissions with or without pre-emphasis?  I would presume it's best for everyone to do the same thing (pre-emphasis or no-emphasis), but is it better for everyone to do it one way or the other?  If no pre-emphasis is the best option, should those who are forced to inject fldigi audio into the VHF transceiver's mic jack add some sort of external de-emphasis circuit before the mic jack, so that their transmitted audio spectrum has a flat frequency response?

thanks,

Paul, ad7i

Thank you for the insight about the tone. I have used it on HF but not on the repeaters. Tuesday is our training session and we have been trying to get the local ARES personnel to engage  using the NBEMS program. Most members do not have  a soundcard interface. This will help Thanks.
