Fldigi Using WSJT, Fldigi and other digital scripts and Macros To get Transceiver chosen, go to Config, then RigCAT, then hamlib and use pull down menu Software is loaded on both Mac and HP laptops
HP laptop seems to be most easily configured Odd things on HP with WSJT: Red circle by freq won't go away. Rig error indicated. App closes if message window closed. Huge strong signal shows in waterfall at left edge???? On HP, Fldigi won't activate iMac sound sometimes changes to mute on its own (??). No transmit then. Nor on macbook Trying to use fldigi on iMac. Probs Doesn't show FT-991 in rig list Doesn't recognize Audec audio connections. When I click “Tune” in upper right, it paints signal on waterfall but I see neither a switch to Transmit on Transceiver nor a ppt light on Signalink Flarq, downloaded with Flidgi, is a file transfer program Do not use FT-991 in rig choice. Instead use “None” Freq to pick are 14.07 for PSK, but 14.076 for JT65 etc. To answer CQ (me) click “grid” reply gives signal strength (me)I click next R+bd he replies (me)I click 73. Fldigi set up and screen showed strings of e and o's. Started to watch youtube video, and all of a sudden it began sending!!!!!!! Fldigi loaded on macbook pro (usiing 3.23.15) Set mac sound to internal mic and speakers Set Fldigi config sound card to USB Audio Codec Clicking “tune “with this led to transmission!! BUT Same settings for WSJT didn't lead to transmission. If USB Audio..doesn't show up in options, close out app and re-open. For PSK31 on 20m, 14.070 is the spot Content of Fldigi macros Macros are loaded at /Users/tomarny/.fldigi/macros/macros.mdf ***************** Open Terminal prompt shows tomarny$ Then 1) cd .fldigi (Note: Must have dot) 2) cd macros 3) emacs macros.mdf and edit as desired ********************************************* Use find command and then add .fldigi/macros/macros.mdf.
