What version and on what operating system ?

I have configured my FLDIGI to notify on receipt of a txid indicator

It has worked properly for multiple versions, but no longer works as
previously.
Now it locks up input to FLDIGI until I close the notification or go to
the frequency in the mode indicated.
That is, I cannot enter text, run macros, etc. What do I need to do to
fix the situation?

FLAmp on VHF through linked repeaters

Bart N5BLP
 

I participate in a digi net that works VHF on a linked repeater system with four repeaters.  They mostly do FLMsg traffic, but I've tried to send FLAmp traffic on it.

It just doesn't seem to work as well as it does on HF (which, of course, is simplex). For a nice, clean signal environment it drops a lot of blocks.  Some operators eventually get it completed when I retransmit the missing blocks, and others don't. 

We've done everything we can to cope with the repeater environment.  We've enable TX/RX interval so the repeaters don't time out, use a 2.5 second pre-signal tone on the RSID, and have the SignaLink delay set to about 60%. 

FLMsg works pretty well (although sometimes parts of it get scrambled), but FLAmp just doesn't seem to.  Is there something about the way FLAmp does it's error checking that isn't compatible with a linked repeater environment?  Has anyone else ever tried it over linked repeaters?

You did not say what modes are being tested on the linked repeaters.  My guess is that one or more of the repeaters are distorting the signal with the pre and deemphasis associated with voice repeaters.  You also might check to be sure that the repeaters do not have tone notching enabled.  Lastly, the signal levels should never drive the repeater audio sections into clipping.

That is an old version, are you sure that is the one you want ?

Dave:

I tried MT63-2000L and MFSK-128. 

I'm sure the signal levels are OK.  Next time I get a chance to talk to the repeater custodian I'll ask about tone notching.  Given that we routinely use FLMsg and FLDigi over these repeaters, would that indicate it's NOT using tone notching, or would that be more of a problem for FLAmp?

I agree with your guess.  I'll ask the custodian about pre and de-emphasis also.

We have used FLDIGI on a repeater and worked well. Have no filters on no notch and if using a Signalink the delay all the way to the left.

Ed,

You can try this alpha version of fldigi, 4.1.02.44 posted at http://www.w1hkj.com/alpha/fldigi/

The pop-up message dialogs do not capture keyboard activity in this version.

Hello, WA2NAN here.  I'm looking for the latest fldigi version available with the wx fix.  The latest at source forge does not have the fix.  Where can I download the latest working version?....tnx….Kerry-WA2NAN

OS X install dmg's for G4 motorola processor #build

Dave
 

The results of the poll of users on Apple OS-X computers is closed.  Only one person responded as still using the G4 dmg distributions, but with the ability to compile from source.  I expect to release updates to fldigi, flrig and fllog this weekend, but without a G4 dmg.   This will save me several hours in release preparation.  I will still entertain special requests to build specific programs for the G4 target machine.

Re: FLAMP New feature idea - maybe

Aaron Jones
 

has anyone played around with FSQ in FLDIG?  It has some options for directed messaging and "allcall" broadcast messaging, ironically I'd say "similar to JS8Call" but it's clear JS8 call modeled itself after FSQCall which was also integrated or functionally adopted into FLDIGI.  I'd love to see that FSQ op mode allow variations in OPmode but with the same "directed" and "non-directed" messaging.  Add in some integration to FLAMP or FLMSG and you are getting pretty close to some store and forward capabilities. 

Any thoughts along those lines since the previous posts in this thread?

See my post from Mar 30.

New postings for fldigi, flrig and fllog

Dave
 

Please review the readme.txt file associated with each program.

The links below are for direct access to the W1HKJ download pages.

The Source Forge files pages have also been updated.


FLDIGI:
FLRIG:

FLLOG:


Direct access is also available to other W1HKJ programs using these URL links:


Report any download problems, or program issues back to this forum.

Note that a ppc.dmg has not been created for this update.  Users needing an OS-X disc image file for the Motorola G4 processor will have to request the same from me at my return address.

CW Interface

Robie
 

All,

I'm a new user and would like to know it if FLDIGI supports the MORTTY device for a CW interface?

Hi Robby, at hamprojects.info. not a secure site.
Mortty is a Do-It-Yourself construction project that provides a miniature enclosure and a computing platform for K0SM’s TinyFSK RTTY Keyer software or K3NG’s CW Keyer software. It optionally can be configured to run W1HKJ’s nanoIO software using fldigi.

Re: CW Interface

Lee,

Thanks for the feedback.  Yes, I'm aware of the info you provided.  I have an assembled MORTTY that is loaded with the sketch that emulates WinKeyer.  It works with FLDIGI, but only if I manually reassign the port to which the mortty is connected and reconnect it each time I start FLDIGI.  Is this expected behavior with this sketch installed?

I could modify the MORTTY (small physical change required to support nanoIo) and install the nanoio sketch.  However, I'm not interested in that approach at this time.

So it works with FLDIGI, but won't load the correct audio port on FLDIGI boot?
