Spot, Tx RSID, Rx RSID, and Tune Buttons

menu-linux.png
Menu
  • Spot button - The "Spot" light button is visible if callsign spotting is enabled. Use this button to toggle the callsign spotting reporter on and off. It is automatically turned off when playback is selected in the Files menu. The main window text is not searched if the viewer is active, i.e., if it is displayed and the current modem is PSK. See PskReporter and Notifier.
  • RxID button - toggles the detection of Reed Solomon Identification codes.
  • TxID button - toggles the transmission of the RSID signal.
  • Tune button - toggles the "Tune" mode which causes fldigi to insert a tone at the current waterfall frequency. The peak-to-peak amplitude of this tone is the standard by which you should set your transmitter drive or adjust your antenna matching network.
  • The right most button is normally not visible. This is the count-down timer button that is enabled when a macro button has been configured to repeat after a specified number of seconds. This button shows the count-down to the next transmission. Pressing the button disables the count and restores fldigi to normal keyboard operation.
