I have my software configured so that FLMsg and FLAmp sync modems with FLDigi.   I do not have FLAmp set up to change mode on transmit, or for FLDigi to auto sync it's mode to FLAmp.  In other words, i only want the mode selected in one place to avoid mode mismatches.

I've noticed that if I manually change modes in FLDigi, the other two programs follow as expected.  However, if FLDigi auto-changes the mode based on the RSID, the other two programs do not.

1.  Is this normal?
2.  Any chance of an update so the other two follow FLDigi even when the mode is auto-switched?

Problem with FLdigi & FLmsg

Ralph Alden Brigham
 

Hello All,

I have been having a problem with my FLdigi suite.

Whenever I get a message via FLmsg, I have the following situation:

After I get the pop-up, I find and see two sessions of FLmsg running and
also starts printing an .xml file into the receive block and transmitting a
signal without my action. Is there some auto-send mode active that I am not
aware of? I have to manually stop the transmission. I have an ICOM 7100.

This is my third or fourth attempt to get help from the group. Assistance is
greatly desired and appreciated!

Hello Ralph,

You need to give more details:

   - What OS and version are you running?

   - What versions of Fldigi, Flmsg, etc?  Be sure to be running the current version if possible.

   - IN Fldigi: Configuration --> Misc --> NBEMS, what do you have set here?  I have:
     - NBEMS data file interface: enabled
     - Open message foler: disabled
     - Transfer direct to executing flmsg: enabled
     - open with flmsg: enabled
     - open is browser: disabled

Hello Ralph,

Ok, thanks for the versions but if you want our full help, you need to answer our full question.  We need to know how Fldigi is configured as well.

Problem with FLDIGI Input.

Edward Feustel, N5EI
 

I have configured my FLDIGI to notify on receipt of a txid indicator
message.
It has worked properly for multiple versions, but no longer works as
previously.
Now it locks up input to FLDIGI until I close the notification or go to
the frequency in the mode indicated.
That is, I cannot enter text, run macros, etc. What do I need to do to
fix the situation?

FLAmp on VHF through linked repeaters

Bart N5BLP
 

I participate in a digi net that works VHF on a linked repeater system with four repeaters.  They mostly do FLMsg traffic, but I've tried to send FLAmp traffic on it.

It just doesn't seem to work as well as it does on HF (which, of course, is simplex). For a nice, clean signal environment it drops a lot of blocks.  Some operators eventually get it completed when I retransmit the missing blocks, and others don't. 

We've done everything we can to cope with the repeater environment.  We've enable TX/RX interval so the repeaters don't time out, use a 2.5 second pre-signal tone on the RSID, and have the SignaLink delay set to about 60%. 

FLMsg works pretty well (although sometimes parts of it get scrambled), but FLAmp just doesn't seem to.  Is there something about the way FLAmp does it's error checking that isn't compatible with a linked repeater environment?  Has anyone else ever tried it over linked repeaters?

Re: FLAmp on VHF through linked repeaters

You did not say what modes are being tested on the linked repeaters.  My guess is that one or more of the repeaters are distorting the signal with the pre and deemphasis associated with voice repeaters.  You also might check to be sure that the repeaters do not have tone notching enabled.  Lastly, the signal levels should never drive the repeater audio sections into clipping.

Dave:

I tried MT63-2000L and MFSK-128. 

I'm sure the signal levels are OK.  Next time I get a chance to talk to the repeater custodian I'll ask about tone notching.  Given that we routinely use FLMsg and FLDigi over these repeaters, would that indicate it's NOT using tone notching, or would that be more of a problem for FLAmp?

I agree with your guess.  I'll ask the custodian about pre and de-emphasis also.

We have used FLDIGI on a repeater and worked well. Have no filters on no notch and if using a Signalink the delay all the way to the left.

You can try this alpha version of fldigi, 4.1.02.44 posted at http://www.w1hkj.com/alpha/fldigi/

OS X install dmg's for G4 motorola processor #build

Dave
 

The results of the poll of users on Apple OS-X computers is closed.  Only one person responded as still using the G4 dmg distributions, but with the ability to compile from source.  I expect to release updates to fldigi, flrig and fllog this weekend, but without a G4 dmg.   This will save me several hours in release preparation.  I will still entertain special requests to build specific programs for the G4 target machine.

Re: FLAMP New feature idea - maybe

Aaron Jones
 

has anyone played around with FSQ in FLDIG?  It has some options for directed messaging and "allcall" broadcast messaging, ironically I'd say "similar to JS8Call" but it's clear JS8 call modeled itself after FSQCall which was also integrated or functionally adopted into FLDIGI.  I'd love to see that FSQ op mode allow variations in OPmode but with the same "directed" and "non-directed" messaging.  Add in some integration to FLAMP or FLMSG and you are getting pretty close to some store and forward capabilities. 

Any thoughts along those lines since the previous posts in this thread?
