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.

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 ?

Regards,

- Joe

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.

Finally found the time to get the software loaded. Preliminary
checkout shows everything seems to be working fine but, now I'd like
to get some on the air testing in to confirm that.

Located in northern Michigan EN66.

Is there any scheduled or regular on air practice and/or testing
session? Please let me know.

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

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

You are absolutely correct Greg.  Skip (KH6TY) and I were not even sure that we wanted to make the beacon have any automation at all, but if it were not a timed event then the operator would be totally tied to the keyboard.

I'm a little too late getting fldigi/flarq and a sound card interface
together to participate in the previous attempts at contacts.

However, I'll keep an ear open this weekend to entertain contacts on,
say, 10137 kHz (+1500 Hz audio) plus/minus depending on QRM.
Anticipate using MFSK16, but will switch to whatever pops up. If
you've got a specific time/freq/mode in mind, drop me a note and I'll
try to accommodate.

As I'm out of town a lot lately, I'm /really/ considering ways to
connect to the shack via the inet. Until then, only weekends work for me.

Thanks for your patience and testing Jeff. I have found an error
in the
logic surrounding retry and timeout counters. I have made changes
to
the code and am doing internal tests.

The extra space that you see at the front of some of the
transmissions
is probably caused by noise detection in the MMVARI control. This
can
occur even if you are not connected to a transceiver. The MMVARI
control seems to generate random rx characters at the trailing end
of
every transmission. The effect gets worse as the psk baud rate
increases. The defect has been reported to the MMVARI author, but
I
have not received any reply to my request for a fix or for access
to the
source code to the MMVARI control. The multiple <SOH> characters
that
you see at the beginning of each transmission are there to mask the
false decodes and also to force the psk afc loop to fully lock
before
valid characters are transmitted. flarq ignores multiple <SOH>
characters.
