My error. Needed to recreate new shortcuts to the latest version
files. I seem to be able to have shortcuts to both the earlier
versions and the latest versions even after a reboot of the computer.
I thought the upgrade overwrote the old versions and these dual
shortcuts wouldn't be possible.

That plain talk window in flarq looks slick! Should have a lot of fun
doing "plain talk"

about: Latest version indicator

"kninefh" <quikhooligan@...>
 

After the latest upgrade my HELP/ABOUT dropdown menu is still showing
the earlier versions of 1.0.02 for Vbdigi, 2.4 for Fl-logbook and 2.70
for Flarq. Is it possible that the version indicators didn't get
upgraded or am I totally confused and somehow still using my old files?

I suggest you look at the Tigertronics interfaces as well. These are
simple and do not require a serial port. New ones have a USB interface
as well. Not expensive, easy to set up, and my experience has been
good with these units.

Hi Dean,

A sound card interface while not absolutely necessary, sure goes a
long ways towards reducing or eliminating ground loop, hum, and RF in
the audio problems that will most likely occur if you make a direct
connection from your rig to the computer sound card. Also, most
computers today have no COM port and most of the communications
software we as hams use requires a COM port, real or virtual. Some of
the more elaborate commercially available interfaces include a USB to
COM port adapter built in with drivers that assign a virtual COM
port. For those that don't, or if you want to build your own sound
card interface (a very simple and rewarding experience if you like to
home-brew), most computer and office supply stores sell a USB to COM
port adapter. Unfortunately some of them provide less than full RS-
232 (COM port) compatibility so you may have to try one or more to
get one that works. For folks new to the Soundcard modes, Randy K7AGE
has made up some great Utube tutorials. Below is the link and I think
you'll find them very informative and useful.

Simplest - shielded cable.
Slightly better - shielded cable with small cap in series.
Better still - 1:1 tiny audio transformer.
(I'm currently using all 3 of these methods for several digital pgms, primarily WSJT).

There are other methods better still, but have not used them.
The standard commercial interface is West Mountain Radio's RigBlaster. MFJ's and others should also work, and all are much more sophisticated than the above.

The simpler you go, the more possible problems with hum. But I've done OK with 4 different rigs & 3 or 4 computers over the past 10 years using very simple (i.e., cheap) stuff. Must work, for I'm up to 500 grids & 73 DXCC countries on 144 MHz.

w1hkj <w1hkj@...>
 

I uninstalled older versions and installed the latest download tonight.

I run Windows XP Pro.

The vdigi when you quit the app, continues to run. It does not show
on the screen, but is running. I had to go to the Windows Task
Manager and kill it that way. Never have seen that before.

John N0EVH

How did you exit the application John ... Did you use the Files/Exit menu item or press the big "X" in the window manager title bar?

I have not figured out why yet, but VB6 keeps an application running in the background when the second method is used.

BTW as a programmer I have always disliked that X.

Hello Dave, Skip,

1. Have you considered the use of compression on files, etc. to be
transmitted, thus
possibly cutting transmission times by one half?

Simple answer: it would not result in a reduction in transfer time

Long answer: Please read the ARQ specification. All data transmitted
within the block must be valid ARQ characters. These are identical to
base64 encoding characters. When you compress a file you produce binary
data which is 8 bit, not base64. The compressed file would then have to
be base64 encoded which has the effect of un-doing the compression.

2. Currently, when stations are disconnected, the displayed data on the
receiving
flarq screen disappears. You are probably saving the info in a file.

flarq is a file transfer protocol, and nothing more than that and
received data is always saved to a file if the ARQ transfer is
successful.

Can you continue to save the data in a file, leave the data
displayed in
the window,
and have the ability to high-light selected data, right-click on the
high-lighted
data, and choose to send the data to a printer. Likewise, the
ability to
right-click
the received data screen and choose to clear the screen.

The "clear" button does that.

Every incoming file is name iaw with the sending stations file
descriptor. Incoming text, binary, and image files are always
located in:
c:&#92;NBEMS&#92;ARQrecv

incoming emails are located in
c:&#92;NBEMS&#92;Mail&#92;ARQin

The purpose of displaying data on the flarq rx window is solely to give
the operator a sense of what is happening. It may or may not represent
what is finally put into the file. When sending a binary or image file
the rx window will appear to contain random noise as you will be
viewing
the base64 data stream. The program will convert the base64 data back
into its original format.

Windows has some excellent editors with print capability. flarq does
not need to duplicate such a fine facility.

Would make life easier for operators .... thinking out loud. :-) 73

Might give the programmer a nervous breakdown :>(

Sorry for so many negative answers.

73, Dave, W1HKJ
