Re: fldigi 4.1.01 release

Hi

I just briefly tried this on my issue of Fldigi 4.1.0.1 and don't see this action with no rig connected

or configured in rig control. What I have in the large frequency window on the left in blue matches

what is the the smaller window on the right labeled Freq with the difference in the frequency + or -

the amount in the waterfall window as expected.

My first question is do you have any check marks in any of the three rig control methods "Flrig,

RigCat, or Hamlib". In my case I usually use Flrig and had a check mark in that tab, but nothing else,

as expected, in the other two tabs. If there is a check mark in one of those tabs then Fldigi may be

expecting to see a connection on the serial port.

Other then that I have no other ideas.

Good Luck.

Below are a couple of pic of my computer screen that explain what I am seeing in Fldigi 4.1.00
After I close the program with it on 14.070 it should load the next time but it doesn't. It opens on 7.070 instead.
This is done manually and not by any rig control.
I hope this helps.

Dave,
Would you please let me know when you have a fix for the problems I reported.
I take it will be new version of software.
I would surly appreciate it.
Thank you.Greg

Please download and test this set of fldigi/flamp files if you have been experiencing lost blocks when transmitting large flamp files.  WN3LIF, WT, my intrepid tester and I have labored for the past two weeks to resolve this issue and this is the result.  We cannot make it break, but welcome any problem reports (and kudos as well).  The fix required changes in both flamp and fldigi.

Please note this configuration panel change in flamp

The "Tx Duration Mins" was limited to 1 minute intervals.  That has change to 0.05 minor and 1.0 major increments.  0.05 minutes ==> 3 minute.  The selection is enumerated in the control to the right labeled "mm:ss".

The flamp script parser has been changed to also work with fractional minutes; M.mm where mm is factors of 0.05.

Your bug report is very local Greg.  I've tested on Linux, Windows and OS X sans rig control.  Change the frequency selection (using the top/bottom digit left click), close fldigi, restart and the last entered vfo value is displayed.  Works as it always has.

I have a feeling you might be using keyboard entry for the frequency entry.  If you are, then you must press the Enter key for the new frequency value to be a saved as a valid value.  The Enter key will also insure that the log control for frequency is based on the new entry.  Your screen shots show otherwise.

Dave,
I am not using any rig control.
I change the main frequency through the icon open list that looks like a little book next to the enter the call button. If I change that the frequency stays on 40m. If I close the program, it defaults to 40m

The Frq never changes and I never had this problem before.

Frq is stuck in 40m.
It never did that before. The frq always changed when I changed the frequency through open list icon.

Dave,
I have uninstalled the program and cleaned out registry and since you claim it is a local problem I am beginning to think it is not compatible with windows 10 which is constantly changing through upgrades.
It is beyond my control and have decided to remove it from computer for now.
I have never used a rig control and did frequency changes manually and as I explained, Flq always changed with respect to the "main" frequency and when I closed program and opened it again, it never defaulted back to 40 meters. It use to open on the frequency that I closed the program on. If it was 14.070, it would open back up on 14.070. If closed on 21.070 then it would open up on 21.070 not on 7.070 like it is doing now. Something is wrong.

GLITCH - Help #2

Ralph Alden Brigham
 

Hello and Greetings,

I have started having a problem with FLDigi recently - after I receive an
FLmsg or FLwrap file my program starts reading an .xml file into the
reception box and starts transmitting said. It also seems that I have FLMSG
running Twice! I close one and then find another session running - when I
close that one the the display of the .xml file stops

Currently running Win10 Home
FLDigi 4.1.00

Current versions of Flmsg and FLwrap installed and behaving.

What have I mucked up?

People in Huntsville AL are stumped - HELP!!

fldigi / flmsg Normal operation or bug??

Al Womelsdorf
 

For starters, I am new to this, so keep that in mind.

When I receive a wrap message (typically msk mode), the message arrives just fine, and if it is the first message since starting fldigi, it will automatically open flmsg to display the message. Any subsequent messages will not be shown in flmsg, but the second message will automatically open another window showing "received messages" (or something like that), and all subsequent messages will be listed there. Also, all messages are saved to disk, so there is no issue there. The question is: Is this the expected behavior? I can easily click and view any of these messages if I wish, but because the first message received is NOT listed, it makes it a big deal to go back to that one. Should this window open on the first message, and then list all messages?

I am running on Fedore 28, and all 4 main parts of fldigi are build locally from the alpha source directory (fldigi 4.1.02.10, flmsg 4.0.8.04, etc.)

Hi Al and welcome to the wonderful world of NBEMS.

There is a setting in Fldigi that will change the way Flmsg behaves.  On the Fldigi main screen click Configure, Miscellaneous, NBEMS.  In the center of the window look for "Transfer direct to executing flmsg".  If that is checked then all of your received Flmsg will appear as a list and you can view each one at a time.  If you open a blank Flmsg before the messages are sent then all of the received Flmsg will be in the list.  If you uncheck this selection then each received Flmsg will open.

I don't like the list because if you don't receive an Flmsg because of an error you won't know this and won't know if you didn't receive it until you go look for it.  I want to know immediately if there is an error with the receive so I can ask for a resend.  Some people like the list because if they only have one monitor the Flmsg will open on top of each other and will clutter up the screen.  I have 2 large monitors and as the messages come in I can stack them so I can see everything.

Re: fldigi 4.1.01 release

Greg Siemasz <gregsiemasz@...>
 

Dave,
I deleted all fldigi files on computer so I could get a "new install" and I got the control back of changing frequencies in Freg box. They matched every time. However, I did some cleaning in Registry too. Now the Waterfall is black and If turn up rec on SignaLink I start to see some blue but nothing like before. I even upped the below that controls rec up to 90 and I never had it up higher than 72. I have another sound card from Ten-Tec and it did the same thing also. So I don't think it's either sound interface. I ran Windows sfc /scannow to see if there were any files that need repair but it reported files were ok. I don't have another computer to check if fldigi would work on it. I even did a reset on my Ten-Tec and nothing changed. Also disable/enabled driver to see if that would help and it didn't change. Do you have any suggestions?

FLAMP New feature idea - maybe

AD5XJ, KEN
 

From time to time it would be nice to have the ability to put FLAMP into what I call "postoffice mode".
It would operate something like this:
    A single station would be the "postmaster" with FLAMP in this mode. It may operate attended or unattended.
    Any station with a need to send messages to the "postmaster" for all stations or to a single station can put their FLAMP in the same mode and indicate if the destination is another
    station or for "postmaster" to broadcast to all stations.
    FLAMP in "postmaster" mode would save the message sent in a special folder and periodically check for messages.
    If messages are in the send-all folder, they should be broadcast at the pre-configured interval until removed. If any in the send-one folder then sent to the recipient when that
    station is acknowledged or forwarded to destination if Internet bound.
   The prerequisite is that all stations would have to be on the version of FLAMP that supports it and know to put FLAMP in "postal" mode to function that way and a "postmaster"
   would need Internet access to be most effective.

The justification for this feature is to allow ad-hoc operation of a group of stations that can pass messages peer-to-peer in any mode of choosing and provide localized message store and forward over the wide area where WinLINK or PACKET is not accessible. This is sort of like PSKMail but within the FLDIGI/NBEMS software suite and in a limited user group.

There are a number of conceptual questions yet to be answered but I think this could be useful to groups like ARES and SATERN. I think it is worthy of discussion within this group. Or you can email me directly with questions.

Conceptually similar to D-RATS messages. Just Sayin.

You are not always near a D-Rats repeater nor do you always have 2-meters in the network of stations.

Re: FLAMP New feature idea - maybe

Al Massaro
 

Conceptually, in function is all I was alluding to, mailbox, direct messaging, delayed receipt.
Although D-RATS will send via FLDIGI, and has the internet connection you stated as the default connection.

I don’t know how JS8CALL has done it but it has the ability to store a message for someone to pick up at a later day.

Been talking about its use in Emergency with the fldigi suite of programs.

One thought that I've had would be to be able to set up flamp to respond to DTMF. A message gets placed flamp and then other stations can retrieve the message by using a fldigi DTMF macro. That then triggers the station holding the message to transmit it. Unlike ARQ store/forward this would permit multiple parties to receive the message at the same time.

This is a similar process by which simplex repeaters can accept and then relay messages. With my Argent simplex repeater I can store a message using flmsg or flamp and then another station can retrieve it with the appropriate DTMF command. Generally this would be done on VHF using the DTMF buttons on the mic.

Kind of similar to the old packet BBS? A store and forward system, I know at least one of the BBS software has integrated with the ability to receive other modes via fldigi in a fashion close to what you're referring to

BPQ32 can use fldigi. There a couple of stations that were using it a few years ago when I was running BPQ32
