I ran KPSK on VL5.8 SOHO a couple of years ago, but since then have not used anything else. It compiled and worked just fine.

Thank you Larry I Downloaded KPSK last night and couldn't get it to play on SOHO 5.9.  But I only had a few minutes to work with it.  I'm using Digipan with wine at the moment.. but It gives me a slight delay through the sound card.. so have work to do.  I would really like to get GMFSK working in VL but my efforts so far have been fustrating.  will keep trying
Thank for the reply 73 Dave

I was finally able to get FLdigi working in VL 5.9  will later this week or early next week package it as a .tlz file and make it available to any who may want it.  Also FL - logbook is working and needs no pacakaging it can be downloaded and un archived and run directly from the resulting file.  FLdigi and Fl logbook will work well togethr for the Ham Radio Operator desiring to work just about any Digital mode with Vector Linux 5.9!

Good work Dave! I was following your thread closely, but with no ideas to give  ::). That looks like a nice hobby. Enjoy!

Thank you I have sucessfully packaged two of the programs to .tlz files.. and they work so will now make them available to any VL Ham users that would like them.

Will be contacting Johnb316 about getting them into the repositories.. they are quite small in size so if any Vector Hams would like them I could email them.
Cheers!
