Hi Mark,

I am a beginner at all this, but recall that when I installed Fldigi on the old Lenovo laptop running Linux Mint 18.1, there seemed to be a separate package to install which held the forms and which was followed then perhaps a hoop or two to jump through to have it all link together, including the check sum process.  Once done, the lap top and and Android phone communicated quite well, beeping and chirping next to each other on the dining room table; speaker-to-mike.  Although my skill level at this is akin to a blind squirrel looking for an acorn, none the less, hope this provides some insight since rumor has it Mac's OS are Linux based.  73, KI7MBR Ole

~/.nbems is a hidden folder.  You can unhide from the Finder menus or create a link to the hidden folder

$ cd
$ ln -s .nbems nbems.files

It's a good idea to do the same for all of the flxxxx hidden files

$ ln -s .fldigi fldigi.files
$ ln -s .flrig flrig.files
$ ln -s .flcluster flcluster.files
$ ln -s .fllog fllog.files

Of course this only applies to those application that you have installed and have executed at least once.

Learn more about the "ln" command

$ man ln

Re: [winfldigi] flmsg 4.0.8.03

Download and install
It will honor both setting the arq-server-port on the command line and/or the configuration panel.  The command line parameter will override any previously set port on the configuration panel.

Hi Dave,
Yes, fldigi 4.0.19.102 works with flmsg 4.0.8.03.  Both are using the folder specified in --flmsg-dir.  I copied traffic from an ARES net this evening, and all of the messages went to the folder specified in --flmsg-dir.

I noticed that when I include the --arq-server-port 7332 argument in both fldigi and flamp command strings, that flamp doesn't receive the data blocks from fldigi.  If I remove the --arq-server-port 7332 argument from the flamp command string, then it does receive the data blocks from fldigi.  The flamp help says the default arq-server-port is 7322.  It seems like fldigi may be using the default port 7322 instead of the port that was specified in the --arq-server-port 7332 argument.

I assumed that if I want to run two sets of fldigi, flmsg, and flamp (one for HF and one for VHF), that each set of apps would need its own arq-server-port.  Am I using the --arq-server-port argument correctly?

Andflmsg; forms do not want to save to outbox

Ole Helgerson KI7MBR
 

Greetings,

Have installed Andflmsg (either 1.2.0 or 1.2.1) on three Android devices; Moto G 2nd Gen (Android 6.0), Nokia 3.1 (Android 8.1.0) and Samsung Tab A (Android 5.1.1).

A very nifty set up, especially as compared to setting up and using the desktop version of Fldigi or Winlink.

Practiced sending messages both text and using forms one device to another "mic-to-speaker" first with devices next to each other on a table and next radio-to-radio with Android devices adjoining the sending and receiving radios with no problem (though the older Moto G tended to drop characters or shut down after transmission or both).   Lastly the Easy Digi interface was tested with a minor technical linking issue to resolve (1) and again the Nokia and Samsung came through in fine fashion.   The newer Nokia and Samsung seemed quite reliable.

And then.....all devices ceased to save any filled out forms to the outbox.   All would happily re-transmit (forward) any received forms. But pressing long or slow on the  [Submit, Save in Outbox] tab resulted in nothing subsequently showing up in the [Outbox] when it was pressed either long or slow.  Likewise for saving as draft.

Attempted solutions: 1) Close out and restart Andflmsg. Results; no change. 2) Restart android device. Result; no change. 3) Delete ver. 1.2.0 and load ver.1.2.1 on the Nokia. Result; no change.

As for file storage, the Samsung is; Internal Storage / AndFlmsg / NBEMS, AndFlmsg_1.2.1_20170505.apk.  The Nokia is; SanDisc SD Card / AndFldigi / AndFlmsg_1.2.1_20170505.apk, with NBEMS.files also directly under the SandDisc

It was working very smoothly, until this bump in the road.  Had not changed any settings that I can recall.....  Can't think of anything more to try.

Suggestions most welcome!

Kind thanks in advance.

Ole

(1) Quick report of how things worked out with Easy Digi interface with the Icom T70 ht.  Bottom line; all Android devices received well when directly plugged into the Icom via Easy Digi.  Transmission, however, seems to required having the factory OPC-2006 cable between the radio and Easy Digi to activate the radio's VOX circuitry. Only the 2.5mm pin from the Easy Digi connects with the OPC cable.  Sort of like having to shift gears instead of relying on an automatic tranny in a car.

Re: Andflmsg; forms do not want to save to outbox; solution, sharper tap with finger tip

Ole Helgerson KI7MBR
 

Problem solved. Whew.  Kind of embarrassed I did not think of it sooner, but if it helps anyone, what works is a sharp tap with the finger tip on the [Submit, Save in Outbox] tab.  :)  73 de KI7MBR

Re: Andflmsg; forms do not want to save to outbox; solution, sharper tap with finger tip

John (vk2eta)
 

Hello Ole,

Thank you for sharing that information.

I see what could be causing confusion: the HTML form buttons (the submit buttons) only respond to Android defined "short press", but the application buttons like the ones at the top of the screen (return, share, etc...) respond to both short and long presses.

Something to look into.

Glad you got it working and highlighted this.

All the best,

FLDIGI FLMSG updates on MacbookPro

Lew
 

I use NBEMS with no issues on my Win10 desktop, but last night my local ARES group ran a hands on workshop.  I was the only one who was using a MacbookPro.  I was able to download the latest versions, but could not get past the security settings on the laptop. 
Can someone help me find a workaround so that it will run these programs that are not downloaded from the APPSTORE?

Thanks

Go to your security settings in the System Preferences app, you should see a box to click on to bypass the download restriction after you reenter your password.

Go to Security & Privacy System preference, Under the General Tab make sure the button under Allow apps downloaded from : App Store and identified Developers is checked. 

When you attempt to launch any of the Apps you will get a pop up that says basically DENIED. Then go to the same panel mentioned above and you will see a message asking you “Launch Anyway” or something to that effect. Click it and away you go. You need to do that for each program of the suite.

If you put the app on the launch bar you have the open of right-clicking the app and selecting "open".  You only need to do that the first time a "suspect" application is launched.

WEFAX IOC576 reception

Dave
 

Here is an example of a WEFAX IOC576 decoded signal on fldigi-4.1.00.  Transmitting station is  NMH Boston, received in North Alabama on 9110.0 KHz on an Icom 7200.  I set the Icom USB-D suppressed carrier to 9108.5 so that the WEFAX signal is centered at 1500 Hertz.  That allows me to use a 1000 Hertz transceiver DSP filter centered at 1500 Hertz.

fldigi 4.1.00 executing on an Apple miniMac, 10.13.6 (High Sierra) using the Portaudio sound interface.  Sound system was calibrated to WWV just prior to the broadcast and required 25 ppm adjustment.  An additional WEFAX slant correction was needed to compensate for the transmitted signal.  The slant adjustment was +0.0100.

fldigi 4.1.0 user/operator configuration

Dave
 

This bug was reported to me by Haris, SV1GRB, within a day of my posting 4.1.0.  It effects non-US users.

"I noticed that we cannot select "None" in the "State" and "County" fields at the Station/Operator settings. I suppose that this is not harmful when some specific contest is not enabled but you see, not everyone lives in the US hi hi."

You can correct the Station/Operator settings.

After executing and exiting 4.1.00 there will be three new files in the fldigi folder

C:\Users\logon\fldigi.files
\data, on Windows 7,8,10

~/.fldigi.files/data, on Linux, OS-X



The SQSO.txt file contains all of the State, Province, County, Disrict names and abbreviations. 

The 7QP.txt file contains the state, county strings for the 7QP contest.

The NEQP.txt file contains the state, county strings for the New England QSO Party contest.

These files are user editable.  When present, the files take precedent over the internal default data strings.


The first few lines of SQSO.txt are:

State/Province, ST/PR, County/City/Disrict, CCD
Alaska,AK,AK1st (SE),SE
,AK,AK2nd (NW),NW
,AK,AK3rd (SC),SC
,AK,AK4th (C),C
Alabama,AL,Autauga,AUTA
,AL,Baldwin,BALD

Add this line

State/Province, ST/PR, County/City/Disrict, CCD
NIL,--,none,none
Alaska,AK,AK1st (SE),SE
,AK,AK2nd (NW),NW
,AK,AK3rd (SC),SC
,AK,AK4th (C),C
Alabama,AL,Autauga,AUTA
,AL,Baldwin,BALD

And you will then be able to select NIL on the State list box and the county list box will be empty.

Delete one of the fl_xxx applications on Windows 10

Dave
 

Windows-10 does not make it easy to remove one of the installed fl_xxx applications.  This technique will make the process a little easier:
  1. Right click on the desktop icon for the target application you want to uninstall
  2. Select "Open file location"
  3. The file finder will show all of the installed executables for that application, include the "uninstall".
The data files for the application are not removed by the uninstall.  For fldigi the files are found in the folder

c:\Users\logon-name\fldigi.files

Do not delete these files unless you do not plan on installing a newer version of the program.
