Working split in FLDIGI

Most things are easy to work out in FLDIGI, but I just tried working a station that was working RTTY split, listening 1 up. You can certainly do this via settings on your radio but FLDIGI allows you to set different rx and tx freqs too – which is easier as it’s just point and click:

  • select the tx freq and press the ‘Lck’ button – this fixes the tx
  • clicking anywhere on the waterfall after you’ve pressed Lck now sets the receive

Don’t forget to unclick Lck when you’re done.

I got this from the manual here (funnily enough).

    1. It doesn’t seem that it’s possible to scroll the waterfall beyond the 3k bandwidth (or whatever your setting is). But thinking this through (and I might be wrong), if you’re using FLDigi via a soundcard interface then you probably can only transmit and receive within a 3k bandwidth as that’s the typical receive bandwidth of your transceiver, right? Unless you have FlDigi hooked up to your radio with some other non-soundcard based interface and you’re using it to do rig control and operate the split feature provided by your radio? It might be possible that way using rig control, but I can’t try it myself as my Alinco SR8T doesn’t provide those features.
