Confirmed the problem with dropping Olivia from the modem pick table in flmsg.  Corrected and will publish an alpha shortly.

David,

If you have Sync modem to fldigi checked in the Flmsg configuration then it will send it with Olivia 8/500 if you have that selected in Fldigi even though it doesn't show in Flmsg. I just tried it and it will work.

Re: Rcvd Msgs

Al Womelsdorf
 

An interesting wrinkle to this is if you do not check this box, then every (correct) message will open a new instance of flmsg, as Ron states. However, if yo DO have it checked, the the FIRST message received will open one (1) instance of flmsg, and populate it with the message. The second received message will open the Rcvd Msgs window, and enter the message in that window. Further messages will not open any more windows, and will add to the list in Rcvd Msgs. Note that the first message received is not in the list (Rcvd Msgs) at all, so if you view a different message, and then wish to go back to the first message, you are out of luck and have to open a file browser of some kind. If, however, you had manually opened an instance of flmsg before any messages are received, then ALL messages get listed in the Rcvd Msgs window. Also note that for some reason, configuring fldigi to automatically start flmsg (like it does for flamp) does not work (Bug?).

My personal preference would be for fldigi to (optionally) open flmsg, just like flamp, and then all messages will get listed in the Rcvd Msgs window and can be viewed at will.

Re: Rcvd Msgs

Mike,

In Fldigi, Configure, Miscellaneous, NBEMS, if you check the box labled Transfer direct to executing flmsg, each flmsg that you receive will appear in a list without opening each one. If you uncheck this box then each Flmsg you receive without errors will open up in a new window.

Re: FLMSG Default File Name: ICS 213 form - Response function

Ole Helgerson KI7MBR
 

Hi Sarah,

For what its worth, the other day I transmitted a test ICS 213 from my ht (Easy Digi + Android phone) to the Alinco mobile (audio connection, Samsung tablet perched atop the radio).  The message showed up on the tablet.

A response was added and it was then transmitted back to the ht.  It came through ok.

The return file _did_ have a different file name;  "Copy_of_KI7MBR...." indicating a reply.  This is based on the "SENT" file list in the Samsung.  I deleted the received file on the phone  (ooops).

Hope this is helpful.  73 KI7MBR Ole

Greetings FLMSG / NBEMS users:  I'm perplexed by something that happened in a recent NBEMS net and hope someone can explain what happened.

Original Message:  sent on a standard FLMSG ICS 213 form, asked net participants to use the "Response" function on the form to provide information as a drill.  Participants were instructed to rename the FLMSG file containing their response, (i.e.,click on the Response tab of the form, type a response, give the file a new name then send it to the net.)

Reply Message:  One of the participants isn't sure what he did to save or name the file he transmitted in response.  The file he transmitted came through with the file name:  [his call sign][date][time].213reply

Please note the word 'reply' added to the file name extension.
How did this happen?  The operator swears he didn't manually type in the word reply.  I caught it and asked him immediately after he transmitted the message.  However I cannot replicate this ('reply' being added to file extension) in tests sending messages back and forth between two computers.  Any ideas any of you have would be welcome!

The PTT control on the nanoCW configuration page does not alter the PTT signal on the interface board, just the CAT command for PTT.  I can change that behavior.

it depends on the mode and if its a quick turnover ARQ mode RTS or PTT "might be"  needed on my  991a and 891 to make it work all the time instead of mostly with VOX and playing with the delay settings.

I use FLRIG in Fldigi and configure FLrig to drive the radio. and I use Data mode , not Upper SideBand. I change data mode to others in the menu the others display offset to zero so that 1000 on the water fall is 1000 and not 2000. You may have to change others shift to15000 to get all 3000hz on the water fall. 

I also set the RTS line for PTT for a few programs that wont work with FLRIG and use them at the same time. I specify the "standard" second serial port that exists and they work side by side programs setup for CAT via FLRIG.


I only use VOX on FM, as its not a data mode I also have to set MIC to rear. If anyone has a way to do 2 meter FM in FLdigi on a 991 without Vox let me know.

re AndFlmsg and 2m; Volume control useful for audio and wired connection

Ole Helgerson KI7MBR
 

Greetings all,

This is perhaps old news for most, but for fellow newbies and those following the path in amateur radio of "blind squirrel looking for acorn" as I do, I hope the following is useful.

Background.  Last February to become acquainted with using AndFlmsg, tested four Android devices and two radios .  The Android devices, Nokia 3.1 (Android 9), two older Moto G 2nd generation (A 6.0) and a Samsung Tab A 6 inch (A 5.1.1)  The radios; Icom T70 ht with 17 inch antenna (with and without Easy Digi interface) and Alinco DR-735 mobile (50, 25, 5 W) with exterior Ed Fong DBJ-1.

Results in February were that all Android devices talked to each other across the table top without radios.  Using the radios, however, sometimes only the RSID came through, either with or without the Easy Digi interface.

That was a bothersome result.  Why the inconsistency?  Sometime afterwards, the recollection came up from something I had read, that either too much volume from the Android device or the radio when sending or too much volume from the receiving radio's speaker can cause problems.

Thus recently looked at the effects of volume adjustment on the sending Android device and that of the receiving radio's speaker using the Nokia 3.1 and the Icom to send and the Samsung perched atop the Alinco to decode receptions (147.555 simplex).

Results.  For sending, things worked when the Nokia volume was set between 2/3 and 3/4 of full.  For reception, the Samsung seemed happy between 45 and 90 degrees of  the Alinco's volume control knob rotation.

Other things checked.

Reviewed the Icom set up.  Used the factory default values for microphone gain. For VOX it did not seem to matter whether it was set for the Icom HS-95 earplug or "other."

Radio power.  In February I used the full power 5 W of the Icom but low power for the Alinco,5W.  This time used the "L" setting of 0.5W for the Icom and 5W again for the Alinco.  The power setting of the Icom is another variable to look at.  The high 5W setting may have contributed to the failures in February.

The Easy Digi.  Still happy with it, though for sending, the Easy Digi's 2.5 and 3.5 mm plugs still did not seem to activate the Icom vox circuity.  The workaround; plug the Icom part OPC-2006 into the radio (a bit of cable with 2.5 and 3.5 mm plugs  for connecting a headset).  Then,VOX will work when the Easy Digi 2.5 plug is connected to that intermediate link..  Reception with Easy Digi is straightforward. Remove the Icom link and plug the Easy Digi directly into the radio.  For anyone who enjoys a good puzzle, I am open to suggestions as to why the Icom wiring is need for transmission.

Hope all this is useful.  Cheers to all involved in developing Fldigi and AndFLmsg!  In addition to winter ice storms and wildfire, our region faces reasonable chances of a Richter Scale 9 earthquake and having a "fast light" method of sending detailed radio messages could be useful in local areas.

Re: Yaesu FT-991A and Fldigi

Thanks Curly,

So I guess the consensus is to use CAT PTT and not DATA VOX on the Yaesu FT-991A.

I wonder, on my Kenwood TS-590S, if I should also use CAT PTT. Is there any difference in the operation.

Then I'm guessing in Fldigi you need the USB Codec set for both capture
