Sylpheed. In particular, what do I input for "Server information" I'm
using a home computer and aol.

Thanks

Please read the ChangeLog page for details. Also check the flarq help page for information on changes.

If you just testing vbdigi and not flarq you do not need this upgrade as is for changes to flarq.

Hi Sam,

Basically you are correct.

If you are going to be in this for any length of time you should
consider getting a interface like the rigblaster, rascals, microkeyer,
etc....They totally isolate the computer from the radio and provide all
the switching which is necessary.

Yes if you are using a notebook computer? On a desktop system you
should use LINE-IN to prevent overdriving the sound card.

The "MICROPHONE IN" of the radio goes to the "SPEAKER OUT" of the
sound card. Also accomplished with a patch cord and proper connectors

OK, sound cards also have a LINE-OUT. Use LINE-OUT if it is available.

The PTT circuit of the radio can be controlled either through using
one of the Serial Ports of the computer, or separate manual switch or
manual Send/Receive switch on radio. (Yes/No?)
Manual T/R will never be fast enough for digital communications. You
should use a T/R switch that is toggled by RTS if possible. You can
also use the VOX on the transceiver.

Questions...

1. The mode on the radio is set to SSB?
USB for all communications including RTTY.

2. Is there anything else that has to be connected between the
connections from radio (mic/speaker) and connections to computer to
the sound card other than the patch cords? Or anything you'd
recommend to prevent RF getting into the computer during transmit
along the patch cords? ie ferrite beads, cores, or anything else?
If you experience RFI then isolation transformers should be used
between the radio and the computer; on both audio lines. Better yet
you can purchase a suitable digital interface that already has the
audio isolation and PTT circuitry.

vbdigi requires both the Rx and the Tx audio to be on the same sound card.  Are you perhaps trying to use 2 sound cards?

Just to be sure. I uninstalled NBEMS from the XYL's computer. Went to www.w1hkj.com/NBEMS and downloaded the current NBEMS file and did an install. All of the current versions are intact.

Check 10.137, there's been a group playing there for 2 days now. Go to http://www.obriensweb.com/sked/ and select Digitalradio at the top of the page, they're using that to organize things while they experiment.

Firefox and IE work FB with your original link.
 
Did connecting from John NoEVH to my station this afternoon. I have flDIGI installed on 2nd laptop HD using Ubuntu, seems to be quite nice running under Linux. Using beams and Horiz/Vert polarization we managed some weak signal work S0-S1 signal. Great copy!

I want to thank all of the hams who stepped up to the plate started testing the NBEMS suite. Skip, KH6TY, and I received many reports both good and bad. I know that Skip has been as busy as a one-armed paper hanger working out some of the installation issues. He has kept me isolated to keep plugging away at the code. Where ever possible your reports of bugs, problems and inconsistencies have been addressed in this version.

vbdigi has received some modest code changes to try to catch a few of the remaining "VB error traps". I'm sure that more will show up as the application is used on a wider range of hardware and OS revision levels. Be patient with us as trying to make a single application both install and work properly on everything from W98 to Vista is a formidable task.

flarq has been given the greatest amount of rework. It may not appear that way from the user's perspective, but much of the logic has been changed to make it operate better under marginal s/n conditions. Bench testing and on-air testing always show up different problems.

Some of your observations are valid for the current flarq release.

I am working on a revision with some logic changes and bug fixes. Please monitor this group for announcements of software updates.

Thanks for all of the testing folks.

KC Area Testing

"n0evh" <n0evh@...>
 

Hello all,

I was the ham working with KB0EMB. Wanted to add a few details. Even
though we had excellent signals on 2 ssb (we are only 5 miles apart)
we saw alot of repeats on psk63. Sometimes our transceivers stepped
on each other when doing arqs.

I was running an FT-817 and Larry the FT-897. Anyone out there that
has run into anything like this?

With excellent signals I would think repeats of packets would be
rare. We will continue to examine our setup looking for rf or other
audio distortion.

Any ideas or experience out there that can help would be appreciated.

Good evening,

Quick note of thanks for an interesting suite of software.
A fellow HAM and myself were able to transfer several text files this
evening. A few problems at first (operator induced) but am learning...
Fairly reliable file transfer up to PSK63 however PSK125 & PSK250
seemed to have problem connecting. Wondering if others have noticed
this?
BTW most testing was 2M SSB but we did briefly switch to 2M FM and it
worked great.
