Tom,
The IC-7200 is a fine rig for FLDigi work.  

Over time I have found FLDigi rig configuration initialization can be seemingly inexplicably temperamental at times (pardon the double adverb).   

I'm sure you have set the IC-7200 to USB-D with digital port as USB (of course this assumes you are using the 7200's internal USB sound/CAT port.)   

Carefully examine all the parameters with particular attention to baud rate, and com port (Device) is correct.  Failing to sync then try adjusting RTS/DTR, porting interval, stop bit 1 or 2 (usually not critical with either 1 or 2), Write delay (50 or so), retries (about 3 is good), retry interval (200 or so).  retrying initialize after each change.  Make sure the Use HamLib square is checked. 

Others are likely to suggest using FLrig, which is Okay though I prefer the simple approach using HamLib or rigcat.  RigCAT requires a 7200.XML file download for your rig.  

Regards, Phil / K4PO

Let me add that the control features as implemented in fldigi/flrig may finally sway the decision as to which CAT method to select.  A comparison for the IC-7200:

Re: ARC Forms

Bart N5BLP
 

Yeah, that's where I put them, and they work just fine there.  I guess the "Red Cross" menu item is where they used to go and is being phased out.

Another question.....  I noticed the Daily Shelter Report is no longer one of the ARC forms available.  Does the ARC not use it anymore?  It seems like that would be a basic one to have.  I know Winlink still has an ARC Daily Shelter Report is their library of forms.

Re: ARC Forms

Bart,

I filed them in the Custom directory. When you want to use them you go to the Custom directory and select the one you want to use. When you receive the ARC form it will automatically open it up for you if you stored them in the Custom directory.

Is that "Red Cross" menu option not intended to be the place where the forms end up?  Is the CUSTOM folder where they're intended to go, or am I missing something?

Thanks.

Re: Flmsg as a Stand-Alone Forms Application

Pete Thuotte
 

Steve,
I thought I might find some posts of yours here!
So, you are familiar within my issue. Messages come through my BBS, using Winlink Packet as attachments, in .xml format. I need to import/drop & drag convert ?.. into FLMSG  to send to local teams in the field via VHF, using FLDIGI (flmsg). They have no access to Winklink Packet or Packet. only VHF FLDIGI. I been doing it by "copy paste" the contents of the attachments into Blank form, and sending it that way. the formatting information is also copied along with the message. 
How to make use of that formatting information to deliver a professional looking message, in it's original format, to the end user is my question.
It may have been answered already but, I have not previously dove to this level of the software (Operator, not well educated on the software)\ and only begun to search this group's messages for help.
Thanks in advance.

Re: fldigi 4.1.08.18 posted (Possible bug)

Randy
 

Greetings,

 

I installed fldigi-4.1.08.18 last week on a windows xp system.  I am finding that macros with inline commands are either hanging or getting out of sequence.  For instance if I try to send short bits of text using 3 different modes the macro will either start and send the first of 3 parts or get out of sequence and send all 3 parts but with the modes jumping out of the correct order. Less frequently a mode will stall in transmit with no text attached.  A sure way to demo this is to run this macro and do escape to cancel after the first modem.  Then restart and the modems will be out of order.  Canceling again will rotate the modems one more down the sequence on the next restart.  It would appear the buffer for the inline commands does not clear on a cancellation. 

 

Macro text:

<!IDLE:1.00><!MODEM:NULL><!IDLE:2.00><!MODEM:PSK500RC2><!GOFREQ:1800>

Thank you for the kind words Bo.

I'm getting ready to post .24 later today with a few additional RTTY enhancements.  The <BEL>, 0x07 character decode has been in the request loop for a long time.  It's implementation required the audible alert to work correctly.  Now that it does I'm add a <BEL> short cut key for the Tx widget keyboard entry: control-shift-g.  The complete list of control-shift keys will then be:

    control-shift-c  : <CALL>
    control-shift-m  : <MYCALL>
    control-shift-n  : <NAME>
    control-shift-r  : <RST>
    control-shift-l  : <MYLOC>
    control-shift-h  : <MYQTH>
    control-shift-a  : <ANTENNA>
    control-shift-g  : <BEL> 0x07

I'm pretty sure that there aren't many fldigi users who are even aware of the short cut list.  BTW those short cuts also apply to modes like PSK-31 etc.  So you can give your early morning PSK-31 QSO partner a wake up call with a series of <BEL>s.

Dave, how do you do it?  Do you realize how many and how much you have impacted with your genius?
A bell for RTTY, eh?  How about some Model 15 noises for the background to go along with what I call the RTTY MUSIC?
Looking forward to trying out the new features!

A great big THANK YOU from millions all over the world.
