I can get it to run with the V2 modem to run per the instructions on the 
website. It does switch frequencies and receiving to a certain extent, but the 
problem involves transmits. It keys up the radio and the audio is low, despite 
changing the levels, but then constantly transmits as it moves over.

I am a little confused with PTT set up for 7200, does it have to be VOX? Is 
this handled by pskmail_server? Using Java 7 (openjdk) something with Debian 
unstable (sid)....  Its kind of a test to be using this version as fldigi seems 
to be act really strange when I use Ubuntu. Might switch back due to other 
things I might need to do on computer.

Otherwise, a question for you and anyone else, what would be a recommended 
"compromise between speed/sensitivity mode to try getting some attention on 
80m, 17m and now probably 40m?

I've got the V2 modem  running tests on PI4TUE, using an IC7200.
So far the tests are very encouraging, using pulse audio.
I will put a test package together with server 2.0.20 and the latest V2modem...

For the North American servers on the wiki page, I decided to remove those that 
have not been heard in a year on the wiki. The list should be "fairly" accurate 
at the present time.There may be changes/additions, so, please feel free to do 
as the intent is to be open to all. I will just watch and add/revise based on 
what I am seeing..

Which is that, I have  recently added KB1NCJ as a server and my understanding 
is operating on 30m. Not heard him yet, but apparently getting through KB2PNM 
periodically.  W1PID from New Hampshire has been spotted a few times on 30m? 
running a client program and also "only" seems to be sproadically heard through 
 KB2PNM. No copy here.... That seems "typical" from what is going on over here 
with 30m, with extremely "sproadic" and erratic conditions, but the antenna 
works beautifully without a tuner..

Anyway, I am still exploring 80m and 17m. Nothing on either bands previously 
except for QRM with other digital modes.  Right now, on 3.592 for 80m and 17m 
is on 18.112. 40m is still on 7.106 with "some" copy from WB2LMV and 20m on 
14.111. Trying out PSK125R to see if it will "attract" some attention and help 
copy me or other stations better.. Otherwise, does anyone have any suggestions 
on modes to broadcast to help out with this?

I would like to move to V2Modem and been attempting it, but having issues with 
IC-7200 here.
