    This AppleScript makes logging into RUMLogNG from Fldigi a breeze.

    There are at least a couple of different ways to get this AppleScript working with RUMLogNG and Fldigi. This is a simple method and includes various helpful links and the script itself for RUMLogNG.

    The equipment: An old iMac, Icom 7300, one USB cable, RUMLogNG, Fldigi and of course the AppleScript.

    Hi Nicolas,
    Great question and I was wondering the same.

    I have MacloggerDX right now and I'm trying to use an AppleScript with it. Unfortunately it is not working very well. I'm having some trouble, but maybe it is just my radio. I'm going to try and resolve the issues I'm having.

    The Applescripts for MacloggerDX are in the Extras folder that comes with MLDX. They are located in the Sample Files>Scripts>fldigi scripts. I have tried the _Log2MLDX.scpt and the mldx_log.scpt. the second one works better for me, but not perfectly.

    There appears to be a problem with it logging the correct mode into MLDX.

    There also seems to be a problem with PTT when trying to use UDP between MLDX and Fldigi. There is a workaround, but I haven't gotten that far.

    I hope to make progress with it and maybe someone else here can help us.

    Best 73,
    Rich, K0PIR

    If you're having issues getting MLDX and Fldigi to talk via AppleScript, feel free to email me directly (email on QRZ is good). I wrote a couple of scripts for MLDX and Fldigi and have worked with Don a bit on extending the AppleScript library for MLDX to support Fldigi.
