Hello Rein,
 
sorry to have so many questions, I am working on multiple systems and they have 
different issues with all of them.
 
I may revert back to a 1.x system at work then, as long as we can get the igate 
working.

I have 1.8.1 at the home location, unfortunately when I upgraded from 1.5.26 to 
1.8.1, the Igate will not connect, it was working well with the old version, I 
have entered an igate call sign and ticked the status box, but nothing happens, 
if I go to preferences and save, then close and open jpskmail, the igate call 
and tick boxed are no longer there, could this be a compatibility issue with 
the old config file and the later version?, or is the igate function no longer 
supported?.
 
I am trying to create another igate that supports dominox to help the system.  
 
Regards
 
Vic

Vic,

 

unfortunately jpskmail version 2 does not support DominoEx,

as the modem is not available in java (yet?).

That is the main reason why I am concentrating on version 1 with fldigi at the 
moment...

Hi Rein,

 

thanks for the information, I have a copy of jpskmail 2.1.0-f running on a PC 
at my work location, I was hoping to leave this running as an additional gate 
for traffic, it has been running for some time now and seems to work well, is 
there a newer version of this second generation software that supports domino ?.

 

Regards

Vic,

 

9A1CRA and OE5RTL are supporting DominoEx modes. You can check that easily 
using the 'ping'

and  Inquiry ('ctrl-I') commands. Set the client to DOMEX22 mode, set the 
server call and do a ctrl-I.

When the particular server hears you you will get a confirmation. Be sure to 
set TXrsid ON in fldigi.

 

You can make the client stay in DomEx mode by setting the proper default mode 
in Preferences->Mode.

It helps to send pings at the start of the minute (around X+10s), then the 
server has a minute 

left before it changes mode again after receiving your TXid.

 

When afloat, you can set the computer time using the 'latest fix time' on the 
APRS tab.

 

Depending on the time of day and the distance to the server, you will see that 
DomEx modes 

suffer less from multipath distortion than PSKxxxR modes. They are also less 
crytical 

with respect to frequency drift.

 

You can see which servers are active on http://pskmail.org/web/pskmailusers.php.

You may be too close to many of the German/Dutch servers...

Your APRS page shows you are being heard by 9A1CRA...

Hello,

 

I have 1.8.1 and the latest fldigi in use for our trip in a couple of weeks, 
all working as expected.

 

I can see the dominox modes are now available, and thought that it may be worth 
trying this for APRS, I went into the mode tab in jpskmail and selected a 
dominox mode, fldigi changed mode, but shortly after it changed back to 500R 
before the beacon time came round. How would I make it stay in the selected 
mode?.

 

I am currently only seeing beacons from two servers OE5RTL and 9A1CRA, are they 
the only ones on currently?

 

Do these have code versions in use that will allow decode of the domiox modes?

 

I was just thinking that if I get time, and changing modes is not too 
difficult, I could try this mode at some point to see if there is any 
difference in performance.

 

Thanks for any advise.

 

Regards

 

Vic
