    Mark, another request, can you add SteppIR functionality to your Stream Deck interface?

    Mark, what font do you use creating your buttons, I'm making some up and want it to conform with what you got done. I got the blank button from your github page. My new desktop doesn't have Photoshop in it yet, so I'm using the Elgato online tool.

    Hi Mark,
    Some new ideas and suggestions:

    - The Help has an typo in the Active Slice Commands description
    http://localhost:13522/api/AciveSlice/{cmd}?param={val} (must be ActiveSlice)

    - Add a function to ActiveSlice/STEP to have the step cycling between the defined range, this can save 1 button.
    - Same as above but for ActiveSlice/FILTER

    73, Max

    I will change the standard action for UP and DOWN to loop around for ActiveSlice FILTER and STEP in the next build.

    The ability to move the TX Bandwidth Low and High or set a value range in the next build.

    I will be adding ActiveSlice SWAP feature with NEXT which will swap active slice with next one OR set a slice number to swap with; So 0 that would swap active slice with slice 0, if you are on slice 0 then nothing happens. This will be in the next build.

    I am not a SteppIR owner so do you have a lead on where I could get the protocol?
    If so email it to me at the FRStack Help menu support contact. Thanks.

    I'm trying to get some assistance with Setting a 40 Meter Global Profile on the Profile tab.  It is a...

    Custom:  Rest Call
    URL:  http://localhost:13522/api/Radio/globalprofile
    ClickParam:  param=40M

    I do have a 40M profile but when I push the button I get no response.  Would someone please point me in the right direction...thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Regards,
    Ronald/W4RJF

    Ron, your command looks correct. Be sure that the string after the param= is exactly the name of your profile. That is the only thing I can see that may be wrong. Also, be sure the profile loads correctly from SSDR. Given no typos in your commands, it should just work.

    Ron I ran into some issues with profiles too, so what I found that I had names of profiles that did not work when called from Stream Deck. Using your 40M profile as example, what I did using the Profile Manager in SmartSDR I made a copy of 40M by loading 40M up and giving it a name like 40m 2. Then I would delete 40M and then load 40m 2 and save it as 40m, then delete 40m 2. Then Stream Deck was able to call 40m profile. It must have something to do with the fact the my profiles were made many SmartSDR versions ago, I know there is some case characters Profile Manager doesn't like. Renaming all my profiles I am able to access all my Global, Mic and TX profiles from Stream Deck see below:

    I found that profile names could not have any spaces in the names.  I renamed my profiles and they are working fine from both Stream Deck and Touch Portal.

    Based on this posting, I bought the 32 key version.  It sets up well and I have added a few key functions along with the one within FRStack.  I really need to find time to fully understand and exploit.
    So big thanks to you Mark, and I am hopeful it will continue to evolve.

    Perfect, just what I wanted to hear.
    Just purchased an SPE 2KFA.

    Mark I have been running DDUTil with a Genovation keypad, love it.
    Do you think I should be able to run DDUTil and the Genovation along with FRStack and the Stream Deck without issue?

    I honestly did not know about the Stream Deck until this past weekend at SMCFEST in Bloomington IL.  WT2P gave a program about his remote setup where he had mentioned this cool new Stream Deck tool he's using.  I learned something new, now I want one!

    Hi Clay,

    I have both the Genovation and Stream Deck working side by side. 

    DDUtil offers its own CAT commands which I have some of them implemented.

    Thanks Dave. I see what my next purchase is going to be. These devices are both very worth the effort. Great with both Maestro and SSDR.

    I’ve just taken delivery of my Stream Deck and spent the evening playing around with it, making several errors in the process.  It’s a learning curve and I suspect I’ll have further questions as issues arise. Great toy and once I've finally cracked it I'm sure it will become even more useful.

    Just a question for now:  I want to select just the MIC and BAL inputs (not LINE or ACC, which I don’t use).  How do I explicitly select these?

    Hi Jeff,
    That function doesn't seem to be implemented. I'm sure Mark will look at it.

    I change those using MIC Profiles:
    GET URL: http://localhost:13522/api/Radio/MICPROFILE
    ClickParam: param=PR-40 Rag

    where my MIC Profile PR-40 Rag is using the balance input
  • G4IUAG4IUA Member ✭✭
    edited August 2019
    Thanks Mike.  This is beyond my present very limited understanding!  Would you please tell me how you set up your MIC profile.  Even if this selects the balanced input (BAL) how do you set it up so it selects the MIC (unbalanced) input?
    I'm sure it's very obvious once you know but I'm still in the very early learning stage!
  • Mike_VE3CKOMike_VE3CKO Member ✭✭

    Ok, I'll give it go. First setup your microphone setting that you want saved such as BAL or MIC, the level, processing etc. Then in SmartSDR at the top left select Profiles, then Create Profile. The Profile Manager window opens up that shows Global, Transmit and Microphone tabs. A box underneath says "New Profile Name". Simply type in the name you want for your profile, keep it short and simple text. Then hit Create button. That's it. Your new Microphone profile is created, and that is what you enter into the param setting in the Stream Deck GUI as noted above.

    Hi Jeff

    Now might be a good time to grab the V3 Software users guide an look in the manual.  Check out section 16.1 - Mic Profiles and let me know if the helps you some to figure out Mic profiles.  

    Mike gave you the highlights to get started though.  :)

    Works brilliantly - thanks for the pointers, which I needed just to get started.  I returned the 15 button version and replaced it with the 32 button one.  Next is to customise the programming, based of course on Mark's original config.

    A follow on question: if I want to select something in the sequence DIGU, then BAND and to have a preset FT8 frequency for the band selected (eg 14.074MHz).  How do I achieve that?
  • Mike_VE3CKOMike_VE3CKO Member ✭✭
    edited August 2019
    You will need to create Global Profile by just setting up what you want DIGU, 20m and the Frequency be sure DAX is on, the create the profile, I called it "FT8 20m". Took me under 30 seconds to setup. I have a bunch of Global, Mic and TX profiles setup (see previous post), so in Stream Deck all I did was copy a previous global profile and pasted into an empty box in my Global Profile folder, then changed the param to "FT8 20m".
    DONE

    Thanks again Mike.  I'm gradually getting the hang of this and discovering new ways to customise and populate the panel.  As you say it takes no time once the basic commands are understood.  Still some trial and error but it's fun.
