Also, are you using the USB cale for audio or passing that through the mike connector?

The first thing that comes to mind is to check your audio mixer levels going to the rig's audio codec.

You could also try setting the Audio signal on both left and right channels setting on the Config>Audio>Right Channel tab.

I installed VSPE on my 64 bit Windows 10 computer. When I launch it, it asks me if I want to register, I click NO. Then a box pops up asking me to register later, I click OK. The program then runs fine. As I understand it, when doing that, the program reverts to the free 32 bit mode, which, in my case, is adequate for my needs. Yes, it is a bit of a nuisance each time it starts, but I don't have to start it very often and I don't have to spend $20.

 I have a TS440sat as a backup rig and the TS140 in flrig works fine. I believe the baud is 4800.

Greetings, all,

I'm having to begin all over again with RTTY, et all, so bear with me. Presently, I'm the owner of an Icom IC-7851, which I'm having to study quite a lot. Nearly everything I was used to on my previous rigs got blown away, thus I need a lot of clarification of today's tech in trying out the digital modes.

Is anyone interested in "tutoring" an old-timer? Any notes, suggestions are appreciated.

TNX, 73's,

Hello, I am going to try to use your VSPE with my Windows 10 (x64 bit). In order to do this I need to buy it. I was wondering if you would make a special request and let me get the 64 bit system for free? I will be using this in case of emergency (emergency communications). I will be able to do this with Ham Radio. Who knows what could go on at any second. Please think this over and if you have any questions you can email be at K6BFL456@...

This is what I am going to send them. Do you think this is appropriate?

Re: Fldigi

Brennan Long <prankster2261@...>
 

ok I will try that thanks

You will find that VSPE is superior to most virtual port tools.  If you can't afford it or have problems with payment means contact Eterlogic with an explanation and that you will use the tool in support of emergency communications.  They might surprise you...

But here goes another problem. I can transmit but with no power. Any ideas.

Re: Fldigi

i GOT IT FINALLY! Dont know how but was calling CQ DX on 30m and it worked. Thanks for all of the help and I will try that with HDSDR. Thanks and 73

FLDIGI does not use OmniRig. For FT8/JS8 there are other options than OmniRig, so you can go without it.

For HDSDR however, I am not aware of any other serial CAT rig sync control for HDSDR other than OmniRig (but perhaps here) if you need to sync HDSDR also.
The CAT settings in HDSDR call the OmniRig config program, so that is the same for all programs using OmniRig. Here is my OmniRig settings file (using 9600 baud) where you can see the OmniRig seetings. HDSDR stores its settings in the Windows Registry (not for the faint-hearted), a lot of technical variables.
But my HDSDR CAT settings in Options F7 are:
1) CAT to Radio -> sync Rig1 + sync to Omni-Rig + sync from Omni-Rig + sync Tune frequency + sync Modulation (=mode).
2) Misc Options -> Tune fixed to 'LO<->Tune Offset'
3) "set LO <-> Tune Offset" to -60000 (=60 kHz local oscillator offset).

Anyhow, if you run more than one program with CAT, you will need VSPE so they can share the rig (enhanced) COM port, even if it said not always work ;-). Note: all OmniRig-configured radio programs together count as one in this respect.

To me, OmniRig is the robust CAT solution if the radio programs offers such a possibility.

As I said, with VSPE I can run FLDIGI, AClog, HDSDR (with SDRPlay RSP1a) feeding a CW Skimmer, and optionally WSJT-X or JS8CALL (they have OmniRig as one rig "type"), at the same time. Not using all of them at the same time, but all follows frequency and mode beautifully - change the rig VFO or mode, change freq/band/mode in FLDIGI or CW Skimmer or HDSDR - and all other follow nicely.

Ok thank you Poul. I will try that. Is there a way to not use Omni Rig at all? Also if it is not to much to ask you said you use HDSDR will you please post the setting for that? You have been a great help. 73

i have the chips in my radio i know there is a xml file for fldigi to work just not flrig.

OmniRig is a CAT software from dxatlas.com and its config program is sort of a small box on the screen, much higher than wide. OmniRig itself will be called in the background when you have configured CAT in e.g WSJT-X, JS8Call or HDSDR ("Omnirig Rig 1"). You will be mostly fine if you use the OmniRig FT-991 ini files fresh downloaded from dxatlas.com, otherwise use mine FT-991-SA7CND.ini on http://sa7cnd.se/ somewhat updated by me. Put it in the folder C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Afreet\Products\OmniRig\

FLDIGI can not use OmniRig, so a COM port Splitter such as VSPE is needed for FLDIGI cooperation with "omnirig programs", and then you can config FLDIGI with e.g RigCAT and a FT-991 xml config file. Mine FT-991-v2.xml is enchanced, on my radio page. Put it where you can find it and link to it from FLDIGI Config - Rig Control - RigCAT.

It can be a good idea to study the FT-991 CAT Operation Reference Manual also.
With the VSPE Com port Splitter I now mention on my radio page, I can run several of the programs I mentioned above at the same time, so you could also - with some work and trials perhaps...Hope this helps, GL.
