Re: Problem with nanoIO in fldigi ver4.1.05

Hello Vlad,

Sorry to take a few days in reply.  The Arduino build system was the last to be installed on my new development machine.

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.

I am investigating the keyer Iambic-A/B disconnect.

It is impossible to change keyer type. Only default lambic-A is working.
Is it any external settings to make it work, or it is valid bug?

Thank you

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.

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.

Can a FT-991A user send me the radio menu setup for using the internal
USB codec sound device. I've seen suggestions about using the USB serial
emulator for PTT but I would think it would be easier to use data VOX
for PTT. Also I'm confused if you need USB-Data for HF and what you
would use for FM.

Then I'm guessing in Fldigi you need the USB Codec set for both capture
and playback. Also, I'm guessing for DATA VOX you do not need any serial
port PTT checked. Also do any selections in Right channel need to be
selected.

Thanks Poul. I've noticed some people use PTT VOX and some use a COM port. On my Kenwood TS-590S I use VOX PTT built into the USB Audio Codec and it seems to work very reliable. Also, there seems to be a difference in the menu numbers between the Yaesu FT-991 and the FT-991A. Kenwood did the same thing with the TS-590S and the TS-590SG.

Ron,

Remember the FT-991 has menu settings and functions. To change the Digital Gain you need to use the F button and look for DT Gain. Same for bandwidth.
Its a menu driven radio. Works faster when controlled by Flrig.

Have a good weekend!

Problem with nanoIO in fldigi ver4.1.05

Hi there,
I installed fldigi ver4.1.05 on Ubuntu 19.04.
Everything is working fine, except some problems with nanoCW modem.
feature "disable PTT" is not working
It is impossible to change keyer type. Only default lambic-A is working.
Is it any external settings to make it work, or it is valid bug?

Two different links.  Change of one character in the file name.  If a link does not work you can always right click on the link to see what the reference URL looks like, for example "http://www.w1hkj.com/alpha/flmsg/flmsg-blah-blah-blah.etc".  Then try entering the folders portion of the reference into your browser URL bar, i.e. "http://www.w1hkj.com/alpha/flmsg/".

Tested:
Linux 4.19.42-v7+ Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) with FLTK 1.3.4
Fldigi 4.1.04
Flmsg 4.0.10.03

Geometry option now works with either '-g' or '-geometry'. Note that the Raspbian Stretch stock fltk package is 1.3.4, not 1.4.

Dave, thanks so much for enabling these options. The title works great and will be very handy for those of us who occasionally run 2 instances of Flmsg. The ability to resize the window is very helpful, too.

Looks good on Raspbian Stretch with latest updates.  Both title and geometry options now work.  New received messages appear in Rcvd Messages window as expected instead of opening a new instance of Flmsg (was fixed in 4.0.10.01).

Two very minor nits for 4.0.10.02:

Custom title must be specified using '-ti' parameter.  The custom title setting will be ignored if specified with '-title'.
Geometry must be specified using '-geometry' parameter.  The custom geometry will be ignored if specified with '-g'.
