FLdigi mode recording

Post by G4DWV - Guy » 05 Sep 2020, 13:03

I had my first Olivia QSO yesterday and I noticed that the mode was not sent to LOg4OM. I had to enter it manually. Am I doing something wrong or is this normal behaviour.

If you are using the FLDigi log button, Log4OM picks up the QSO info by following an adif file. Setup is on p 190-191 in current user manual.

In my experience, you will need to follow the temporary log file at c:\Users\<login>\fldigi.files\temp\log.adif, not the permanent logbook.adi. The latter doesn’t have ADIF compliant SUBMODE entries so some modes like OLIVIA will be logged incorrectly by Log4OM. If you are only using PSK31 either file will work.
