Hi James

You will need to download the FreeDV waveform from the FRS site.  Please check this document:

for full details.  If further help is needed please ask.

Good Luck

Hi James.

Sorry about the delay (day job getting in the way).  Page 3 of the install manual does outline the two things that have to be installed for FDV to work. One requirement that is missing in the manual is the FDV dongle has to be plugged in to the Flex 6K series.

I may be a bit confused as you mentioned waveform, which would require the dongle. If you are trying to install FDV from the originating site, I am not aware of how to do so.

If you have the dongle plugged into the F6k and the FDV app provided from FRS is running then the new FDV mode should show up in the list of supported modes.

Tim,
You are confusing FDV and DSTAR.
No dongle for FDV.

Got fever to show up. Not sure why it wasn't there initially. Maybe it will work now. There has not been a signal to check if it is workin.

I followed the instructions in the document and successfully installed the FreeDV waveform.  I did not need a dongle, I think that that is for D-Star only.

Everything looks perfect - now if ONLY I could find someone to talk to ... or even hear  - when the nets are running!

Does this site show who is transmitting if they are not logged into this site? Thanks. Jim

No... it's just a place to gather and test really.. but gives a starting point and a frequency most used by those modes of operation
