Re: [multipsk] USING MULTIPSK FOR VHF PACKET

Excuse me if this question has been asked and answered. I am a new user

of MultiPsk and I really like the program. I am interested in using it

for VHF Packet and have been expierencing some difficulties. I can

connect to the local node and to other people who have mail boxes or

BBS set up. I can not seem to send a message to an individual mail drop

box. Is this a feature that I must have a registered copy to do? I have

been able to operate in the Talk Mode and do most other commands. I

also have not seen how you would set up a mail drop box for others to

send a message to. Can someone assist me. If I have to register the

software to do these functions I would be very willing to do so as I

would much perfer to use Packet from my laptop and not have to set up a

TNC. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. KG6PIJ

Hello dear Ham, Glad you appreciate this program. >I can not seem to send a message to anindividual mail drop >box.

First, the registered copy is useless here (you canuse a RX mail box with the registered version but there is no other way to senda message than the "standard" one).About  "individual mail drop box" in Packet... I'm only sure that Multipskworks for messages sent to BBS (at least the one that I know). Do you knowif a specific protocol is used for these individual mails? Perhaps someone knows it in the group? 73Patrick  ----- Original Message -----

I have not tested the packet mode.



I just guess that Patrick implemented a packet

terminal.



In that case, the user must know how to interact with

the BBS or remote mailbox command set.



I believe that so far MultiPSK does not contain a

mailbox, it is just an integrated packet terminal.

I often give demonstrations of Multipsk at club meetings around my

area. I have been asked to do a presentation on Packet without a TNC

and I am planning to use Multipsk for the demonstration. I am

familiar with Multipsk Packet on HF but have not used it on VHF 1200

baud. I will be able to figure out the APRS functions since I have

used those on HF, but what about things like connecting to VHF Packet

nodes or use with things like Telpac /Airmail ?

Hello Andy, >I often give demonstrations of Multipsk at club meetings around my

From the help:"7) In 1200 bauds, in VHF (FM), the operator canconnect to a BBS (Ham station used in "Packet server"). Once done, using the BBSserver commands, he can access to documentation or to read or to drop messages(as e-mails way)." >Telpac /Airmail

I don't know what it is but surely you cannot usethese services except if there are accessible from the BBS through specific BBSserver commands.  For APRS, you have the standard APRS functions(RX/TX) with GPS position handling but also the digipeater APRSfunctions. 73Patrick   ----- Original Message -----From:AndrewO'BrienTo: multipsk@yahoogroups.comSent: Tuesday, March 06, 2007 1:30PMSubject: [multipsk] VHF Packet andMultipsk

Hello:



I am trying to get MultiPsk to TX VHF Packet. I receive packet fine,

and commander controls my rig with no problem. I do not get a "cmd"

prompt when I start the program. Shouldn't I get one? I tried TX by

pushing the connect button, and it sounds like it is working, but cannot

connect to any nodes....



Any Suggestions are appreciated!!!



Thanks,

John (KD8BIN)

#4805 Mar 16, 2008

It has been a while since I used Packet with Multipsk but I think I

just typed in something like C CALLSIGN and it connected.

Nice

kc9jih-7 works. Don't forget to delete possible spaces located at the

beginning or at the end of the callsign.

Hello Buck,



There is no demo for Packet . Refer to the manual.



To configure Packet: select Packet, 1200, FSK, Unproto. Fill the Sender

field with your call sign and the Destination field with the BBS.

Once you hear the BBS, connect it. You will receive instructions from the

BBS to manage it. At the end Disconnect.



Here are some hints:



- It is strongly recommended to calibrate the sound-card: click on the

"Adjustments" menu button, then select the "Determination of the RX/TX

sound-card sampling frequencies" option and push on the "Determination of

the 48 KHz RX sampling frequency (test on 3 minutes)" button. At the end of

the test, click on "Return",



- About the sound level ("Level" indication in % at the top of the

screen): an AF level superior or equal to 10 % is OK. About 50 % is ideal

(but not critical). In case of very low AF level, select "16 bits" in the

"Determination of the RX/TX sound-card sampling frequencies" option

("Adjustments" menu button),



About the help in Multipsk:



- To bring up the text help (contextual sensitive one), click on the right

button of the mouse, with the cursor over the mode button "KISS", for

example).

- Also use the button hints (wait a fraction of second over a button).

Hello,



The problem of interface between PC and XCVR is classical. You have several

ways:



* the quickest with a serial port activating the PTT through an interface,

Look the paper HOW_TO_DO_DIGITAL_TRANSMISSIONS.doc at

f6cte.free.fr/PAPERS.ZIP

It's just an example.

I use a MFJ 1275 personally.



* the more universal (because you can also control frequency and more) CAT

system through Commander for example:

MULTIPSK (DDE TX)-->(DDE RX) COMMANDER-->COM-->"CAT SYSTEM"-->TRANSCEIVER

MULTIPSK (DDE RX)--(DDE TX) COMMANDER--COM--"CAT SYSTEM"--TRANSCEIVER



* some interfaces takes the sound signal issued from the PC and with a

precise (and quick) internal VOX function activates the PTT,



* you can use the VOX function on your XCVR but it is the worst solution.



For Packet VHF, the best is the first solution as it is the quickest.



For questions about Multipsk, you can ask to the Yahoo group.

Ups ..

Email went out too early

Ok rest here:



In the help files of the different digisoft you find several different

designs



The easiest is rts and ground connected to the led of an optocoupler (I

connect an led in series with that and see when pc switches to tx)



And the emmiter and collector of the opto the switches ptt



That 2 things can easy be integrated in an rs232 plug



Connect that to an usb-rs232 converter and youre done (for the ptt thingy)



Now you need just audio in and out from your vx8gr to line in and out from

your laptops soundcard



Some handhelds needs a load of 1 or 2 kohms to ground on the audio(mic) in

pin to switch to tx that the ptt does not short circuit your audio



So ... it is quite easy to build such a thing AND you can find several

solutions that are built commercially



Now it is on your side to spend some bucks (about 10-20 max) and build it



Or look what others what for such a device :-)
