    Hello,

    In my 80's now, and have had sw monitoring as a hobby for
    a very long time. Has always been pretty much HF <30 MHz or so.

    Thought it would be interesting to play around a bit with the digital modes.
    Never had, and know very little about them.

    So, I downloaded, i think successfully, fldigi.
    Haven't gotten very far.

    Have the following questions, please:

    Download and install seem to have gone O.K. Vers. 4.1.12
    Running a SDRPlay RSPdx, and W10.
    Full, normal screen seems to appear fine.

    But, when I open it up, and go to the Configure/Config Dialog, it stays on for about 5 seconds, and then
    the entire program terminates !

    Any idea what is going on ? Sure is funny.

    Might it be I downloaded the incorrect package, perhaps ? Version seems to be 4.1.12

    **Where is the best place and link to download ? Probably worth another download try.

    And, might as well also ask now, as I'm hopeful someone will have a response to the above
    "problem": Want to use SDRConsole to feed fldigi.
    Where do i set up the VAC in fldigi ? Will be using COMOCOM for the VAC.

    BTW: Is winfldigi the same as just "fldigi" ?

    Thanks for help,
    Bob

    There is no shortage of information about this on the web. I'd start with the resources at the SDRPlay site, Fldigi site, YouTube. Try searching terms like "rsp fldigi setup" "rsp fldigi vb audio vac". There are lots of digital mode setup guides out there. It will definitely keep you occupied!
