Any idea when the next release will be out? Working with W1TAG on a
500 kHz emergency comm system and we're awaiting the next release to
clear up an issue he raised.

Thanks for your work on the program!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the reply. After trying several suggestions, I came to the
conclusion that Invert/Reverse on RTTY is not available. Think it might
be useful....mainly to be able to inform those that do not realize
their signal is inverted. The software, so far, has worked flawlessly
for me. Will let you know if there are problems or suggestions.

Perhaps a stupid comment by me, but can you not just change sidebands
(along with the associated frequency change) to get "inverted" RTTY?

My First QSO Using NBEMS

"Sam Saladino" <ortracr@...>
 

I can report that even a Newbie to Digital Communications can make a
succesful contact and QSO with the NBEMS suite. After getting
everything straightened out with the sound card issues I was having
earlier, at least I hoped they were straightened out, I was still
concerned how wide my signal appeared on the VBdigi display even at
the lowest drive setting I could manage that would still trip the VOX
on my rig. Earlier I downloaded a copy of Digipan, and installed that
to see if I could check my signal by inputing the signal from a second
receiver into the sound card. My IMD reading came back as -27db
monitored in this manner while the other rig was hooked up to a dummy
load. So I decided to give it an On Air test.

I've been listening to 40 Meters most of the day and the band has
pretty much been dead, with little activity around the frequency of
7.070 Mhz. Tonight at a little past 1900 local time, I heard a CQ from
KJ5XF in Austin TX. He was getting no response so I went ahead and
took the dive and gave him a call back. Set-up here is an old Kenwood
TS-120S, into a Dentron JR. Monitor Tuner, into a 40 Meter Dipole
twisted around in different ways to fit inside a 33 foot long attic
(antenna approximately 16 feet above ground), Computer is one I built
a number of years ago with the Soundblaster Live Value card in it.
Interface to sound card is just cables, but I did install a isolation
transformer on the transmit side, and plan to do the same on the
receive side. Power was set at 15 watts. I double checked and from my
QTH to that of KJ5XF is approximately 1,000 miles. My train of
thought was if he can at least hear someone was trying to contact him,
I'd consider it a success, as with my setup and only running 15 watts
I didn't expect to get much more at that distance.

What did happen was I got to have a very enjoyable Solid 100% copy QSO
with KJ5XF for several transmissions both ways before the band dropped
out on us again. Signal reports both ways were 599. The software
suite gave me no problems, and the only mess ups were by my own fault
and I quickly recognized and corrected them easily. I'm looking
forward to checking out some of the other modes as well besides just
PSK31, but that in itself will be a helpful addition to our ARES
operations for this county.

roger g6ckr <radio@...>
 

Not stupid at all.
With out an invert function that's what you would do.
But so much easier when 4 RTTY signals are showing in the waterfall, and
one is inverted, with one click you can start reading that one then go
back to the other 3 with another click.
It works in fldigi so be careful what you wish for ;-)

Consistent Error in Program

"Beischel" <beischel@...>
 

Gents, new user of the program. Easy to set-up and use.

However, every time I let the program run, it will freeze up and a
little pop-up box appears with the error in vbdigi - "run-time error
'6' overflow"

No idea what is causing it.

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.

Hi there I also did some great tests on psk 250 with a fellow ham
9H1PI here in Malta and were able to connect without problems at. We
have transferred lots of data like pdf files, small photos, emails in
test format etc etc. We used HF on 10 meters. At first few test we had
little delay problems while the programs tries to acknowledge received
packets (data) but we found out that best is to go to the configuration
menu and set TX delay to 2000. Most of the time I be QRV on 28.120
with beacon on at psk 250.

I see not much users on psk250 most of them on psk31.

Well what i can say is that this little nice program rocks.

Thanks to all concerned.

The new NBEMS suite is almost ready to be posted.  The help files are being worked on today.  You will be able to reduce your wait times and still use the psk250 baud rate.

Announcement of Software Updates on W1HKJ web site

w1hkj <w1hkj@...>
 

It has taken a full week to put all of the pieces into place for this coordinated update to the software on the W1HKJ web site.  The total effort represents over 6 man months of labor on the part of several programmers and an army of alpha testers.  These persons are truly a global team.  I am sure they are all happy to see a conclusion to their recent efforts. If I have missed a file or a link points to the ether please let me know and I will correct ASAP.

The following files and or suites have been updated:

Software
New Version
fldigi
2.08
flarq
3.00
fl_logbook
2.5
EMCpup
3.01.3
fldigi - pet
2.08
flarq - pet
3.00
NBEMS
1.2.0
vbdigi
1.2.0


The flarq / fbdigi Linux suite for ARQ transfers is compatible is the flarq / vbdigi Windows suite (NBEMS) in this version.  Please do not test with previous versions of flarq.

The EMCpup based on Puppy Linux 2.17 has been removed from the web site. fldigi, flarq and fl_logbook binaries are now based on libc++-6 libraries and are compatible with Puppy Linux 3.01 but no the previous version.  The fldigi-pet includes all of the libraries for hamlib and libportaudio that are required for full operation of fldigi in the Puppy OS environment.

Re: Announcement of Software Updates on W1HKJ web site

Thanks Dave, I've just pillaged one of each from your site. Excellent
download speeds. I have done a remove via the control panel and then
fresh install on Vista Home Premium, Win XP home, Win2000Pro, and
Win98SE. All worked fine except the Vista vbdigi will not start.
The runtime error is 429, activeX can't create object. Did the
install twice, same result. I have already done the WinScript change
on the XP, w2k, and w98 machines but didn't see a update for
WinScript for Vista. Probably in SP1 whenever it gets out.

As usual, the updates work flawlessly on all of my Linux distro's.

Please advise if this runtime error '429' is a known problem or it's
just my bad luck this time.

Alas, a new problem. When Vbdigi is running, then exited by the upper
right hand corner 'X' control, the visible part goes away but the
task manager says it's still running. ie, 'cannot run multiple
vbdigis' message appears. I've duplicated this on XP and Win2k. The
program does properly exit with the 'exit' button under the file bar
on the left side of the window. Lazy me, going for the quick kill
button, but this may need attention.

Macros

"w7oze" <w7oze@...>
 

Hello Dave, Skip,

I getting a run time error when the TIMER macro is set greater than 30 seconds.
Likewise I would like to see the upper limit at 1200 seconds.

I would like to see the following macro functions.

1. To specify a particular offset from the tuned frequency. <offset>nnnn, nnnn
being a value between 500 and 2500.

2. Ability to plug in the system time and system date. <systemdate> and
<systemtime> would be great.


Great work .... we really appreciate your efforts.

Macro run time error

w1hkj <w1hkj@...>
 

Hello Dave, Skip,

I getting a run time error when the TIMER macro is set greater than 30 seconds.
Likewise I would like to see the upper limit at 1200 seconds.

Fixed.  Do not use above 31 until the next release.

I would like to see the following macro functions.

1. To specify a particular offset from the tuned frequency. nnnn, nnnn
being a value between 500 and 2500.

How would you use this?  You can do the same thing if you set the Tx Offset on the General Setup tab.


2. Ability to plug in the system time and system date. and
would be great.

Not a difficult addition.  My own personal observation is that date and time macro tags are overused by many operators.  I find it annoying to have the other operator send me every statistic available on his or her machine including date/time on the closing SK macro.  I know what time it is and I can compute the local time at any point on the globe.

Great work .... we really appreciate your efforts.

Thank you, this has been a labor of love.

Dave, W1HKJ
