worked fine (btw, everything else about the new version is great!).
I'm running Ubuntu 7.10.
Any ideas?

Andy, rename your /.fldigi folder and restart fldigi, see if that cures the problem. Let us know the results.

Fldigi questions need to be asked at linuxham, its the official list for all things fldigi.

Delete your $HOME/.fldigi directory and all its contents and then rerun fldigi.

OK, guys...we're making progress. That changed the waterfall. I'll

Finally found the time to get the software loaded. Preliminary

to get some on the air testing in to confirm that.

Is there any scheduled or regular on air practice and/or testing

Hello everybody. I'm a real newbie at NBEMS but would like to become
more familiar with it. I'll make a special effort to be on 10.137 plus
1.5 audio at 0100Z for the next week or so. I'll be beaconing on
MFSK. I can't make it this evening but will be on beginning tomorrow
night (Tuesday night EST). If you'd like to set up a sked for some
other time and frequency please e-mail me.

Tim, I'll take a listen for you. Do you want just a beacon report ? Also you don't say whether its MFSK-8 or 16.

Hi Ed, Lynn,

Greatly appreciate your offer. I was wondering if there was an existing
schedule day-of-week/time/mode
that people on this list look for one another. I think someone stated there
are existing beacons ?

Re: Tuesday 3/4 1800 & 0100 Z

Travis Hardin <ke3y@...>
 

Tim,
I saw you on air Monday but I was using another program. Domino.

I will be there tonight (Tuesday) at 0100Z. MFSK16.

For the rest of you, I WILL ALSO BEACON TODAY AT NOON CST (1800z). Same details, MFSK16. After establishing contact, I will ask if you want to go to PSK125, the fastest mode available in my NBEMS software, for the file transfer.

Beaconing with a slow mode gives enough time to tune in. Beaconing with PSK125 doesn't give time to tune in the signal, especially if you beacon further apart than 15 seconds. That's my experience. Looking forward to copying someone. I will have a 4KByte com file, TED.COM, ready to transmit for the test.

Re: Recommended procedure change

"kh6ty" <hteller@...>
 

We have changed the recommended procedure for NBEMS. Instead of beaconing, just call CQ (or CQ EM in a real emergency), or CQ NBEMS. This also gives a station a signal to tune in, and it is a little easier to tune in a PSK63 signal than a MFSK16 signal. Then when a stations answers, you ask him to beacon. This will verify that he also has the NBEMS software, or he obviously will not be able to send a beacon. It will also result in his callsign automatically displaying in your flarq and you can then press Connect when it does. When your flarq shows "Connected", you can proceed to send a message or a file.

Unless conditions appear to be very bad, try first calling CQ in PSK63, and if copy appears to be pretty good, you can try a transfer with flarq using ARQ and PSK63. If there is consistent QRN, MFSK16 might still be the best alternative on HF, but with the slowest transfer times.

Solid print when using PSK63 will often mean that PSK125 can be used successfully on HF, except when there is a high level of repetitive static crashes.

Travis,

I heard your station loud and clear 04Mar08 1810 UTC. I sync with you
almost immediately but you had lots of QSB on your end. I will try
again this evening at 0100 UTC around the same frequency (10137 +/_.

I did make one regular PSK31 contact shortly after that so I know the
NBEMS software (VBdigi) is working.

I'd like to see some sort of net or general time and frequencies so we
could practice and improve on procedures and to get to better
understand the software.

73,

NBEMS Testing Schedule

"tim.n4um" <N4UM@...>
 

Thanks to all who sent me e-mail. In accordance with Skip's suggestion
I will be calling CQ NBEMS (instead of beaconing as initially stated)
using PSK63 (instead of MFSK16 as initially stated) at 0100Z on 10137
plus 1.5 audio for the next week or so. After contact is established
we can try beaconing and then procede to attempt some test file
transfers. I suggest that we drop down in increments of 2 khz if 10137
is busy.

You might also try 40m on 7072.5, USB, plus 1500 Hz if 30m is dead, or 80m at 3582.5, USB,plus 1500 Hz if 40m does not work out. These frequencies are just above the PSK31 activity and where it is suggested that PSK63 activity take place.

The problem on HF is that the F-layer and D-layer keep changing with the time of day. A good NVIS explanation is here: http://www.athensarc.org/nvis.asp

Travis, my 40m antenna coax turned out to have opened. I have now replaced it, and should be OK on 40m next time. You were S8 and Q5 here on 30m until the band dropped out, and then you went first to S2, and finally into the noise, even with MFSK16.

Since 30m is limited to data modes or CW, unless there is Pactor interference, a QSY in steps of 200 Hz is probably enough to reach a clear frequency and would have the advantage that others will still see you on the waterfall.

There seems to be a pactor station there. I did hear you and N3NR chatting 2 down here in South Jersey. You were a bit weak and fading but N3NR was a solid +20. After you signed I tried to call both of you but it didn't happen.
