It is included for those users who prefer the Windows Standard Dialog over the EasyPal Load Dialog and may be preferred in some Windows versions where users are not fully conversant with how the Windows file system works Especially Important for Windows 7 Users. Your Callsign is transmitted within the Header information and will be displayed in the Receive Callsign window when your transmission is being received correctly.
Depending on the Transmitted Signal Mode see Main Screen options EasyPal has the ability to cope with missing segments of the Transmitted signal to a greater or lesser extent. These functions are locked out when "Max Stability" is checked.
This is mainly a Windows 7 problem. Hopefully, the VCL components causing this will be updated in the future. No Resizing. Slower encode and decode. Longer transmission times. Pictures above the selected limits are Downsized to within the limits. When each option is selected an explanation screen is displayed. For use in Unattended Mode Many Advanced features are disabled or not available on the Menus.

Setup Menu.Be sure that you first download and install the Icom USB driver before connecting your to the Windows computer the very first time. Now, when using a digital mode, you should use the USB-D mode. It also lets you define a custom filter for BPSK The effective output power is determined by a combination of three settings:.
Presumably, you will used your for other operating modes. Fortunately, you can save all your settings in a named file on the SD card. It then becomes a simple matter to load your settings for different modes. Then pick the settings file for the appropriate mode. There are other tutorials on the web about controlling your digital mode output power. Search Search for:. There are 4 important settings. This affects the Audio Level heard by your computer. Depending on your software, you may want to change this.
Set this so that you get a minimal ALC meter reading when transmitting.
This should assure you have a clean output signal. This value can vary depending on your software. The value is also related to your output power. See the output power description below. These are usually described in some detail for each digital control program you use, and can be set up so that all your software will talk to your IC This setting seems to be required for most software programs using the CI-V function.
You want the fastest Baud rate possible. Use USB-D for digital modes. The effective output power is determined by a combination of three settings: The output volume of your computer audio out microphone. Ultimately, this is the best way to control your RF output power. Your digital mode software should have an option or on-screen setting to change this level.Do not bother him with emails about the program. Be sure to include the version number in any report of a problem.
Also keep up to date and use the latest version. Keep in mind that it is still in beta testing. The download is a 2. This file should be placed into it's own folder and a shortcut to it should be put on the desktop.
Select the input where the received audio comes into the soundcard. All inputs should be Muted except for the Master Volume and Wave. There is no progressive receive in this mode.
Compatable only with others running EasyPal. Click on image to display full screen. Animated GIF files will not be displayed full screen. Text may be typed, pasted, and edited prior to transmitting. The filenames and file sizes are listed. The repeater command will then be sent.
Click "OK" to send loaded file to remote repeater. Either sender or recipient may delete this file from the remote repeater. All FTP Settings should be unchecked. Repeater sends out the "reply.
If the "reply. A repeater that has been shutdown can still respond.I was chatting with a club member this weekend. He told me about a digital slow scan tv modulation mode designed for use in the HF bands on a typical SSB bandwidth.
I know about analog slow scan television and have heard about many binary transfer methods for HF. There appears to be a dedicated team behind this program which suggests a healthy development effort. Indeed, after downloading the program and installing it on a Windows XP system, I was using it in no time.
EasyPal – Image Transfer Made Easy
My friend was on the local repeater at the time and guided me through appropriate default options to use. Note… unlike most digital modes where USB is used on all bands, the 40 meter EasyPal users use the voice standard LSB because they switch back and forth between sending pictures and talking about them. Below is the general layout of EasyPal. Statistics of the transfer are available in the upper left.
A classic water fall display is on the lower left. A organizing window, with tabs, is on the right. EasyPal appears to use a form of forward error correction and modulates this data within a 2, or 2, Hz selectable voice bandwidth for use with SSB radios.
I have blurred out the call signs, but each image is prefaced with your call sign sent in a very simple and probably very robust digital mode followed by the image data. The EasyPal Waterfall If you look carefully you can see three vertical lines. These are some kind of reference frequencies expected by EasyPal. You would tune to line up the three frequencies to the three little green squares at the top of the water fall. I just tuned to kHz and was right on the money.
The bottom green and red horizontal line is a progress bar. When EasyPal transfers begin, the number of expected packets is sent first in some kind of initiation packet. Then this bar indicates progress. There is a twist to this though.
The picture simply appeared in finished form on the right screen even though the packets continued to pour in from the transmitter. One interesting point about the waterfall is the evidence of selective fading within the voice channel. It is clearly visible and suggests how frequency selective atmospheric effects are. I am sure it is this kind of selective fading EasyPal tries to work around. When you listen to an EasyPal image coming in, the fading tends to wander up and down the frequency depending on the time of day.
This is a tough haul for any kind of digital transfer and EasyPal seems ready to tackle the challenge. The controls EasyPal provides a modest control panel in the upper left corner. For example in the lower left corner is a check mark box and RS2. You might find this set to RS1,2,3 or RS4.
RS2 seems to be the popular choice. You change this value by right clicking the RS text. Top middle-right is the TX RX window. This gives you live values of several EasyPal parameters. QAM should be familiar to many folks. As you might expect, the higher the QAM value, the higher the fidelity required of the voice channel.
I need to explore these options further, but the settings seem to represent typical values used in the US. Four sub-windows reveal detailed statistics of incoming data.Due to this unexpected development, FlexRadio now must source, provision, and deploy a new Community solution on very short notice. This process is underway and the FlexRadio team is currently evaluating several options and preparing for the move.
Unfortunately, we do anticipate a gap in coverage between the closing down of GetSatisfaction and having a Community tool in production, but it is our goal to complete the work in as quick a time frame as possible.

How to create a ticket.The program started after the unfortunate loss of source code for his previous HamPal SSTV program which was destroyed after storm activity.
Although less stable, it should run on most fast computers with Windows latest releases.
It is designed to be easy to setup and use. DRM as used in EasyPal, allows very fast data transmissions with error correction, enabling very accurate decoding, and a means to request missing blocks, this is all done within EasyPal, and very simple to do.
Images up to x are sent in a little over 1 minute, Easypal does compress images to shorten transmission times, but you have the ability to adjust the compression if unwanted material is present in the image. EasyPal Hybrid process. The new EasyPal Hybrid mode allows the transfer of high resolution images, animated gifs and movies.
If it is not displayable it is saved in the Hybrid Folder within EasyPal. DRM is a new digital radio standard for use by HF broadcasters. The DRM standard uses a bandwidth from 4. It provides FM quality stereo audio over HF as well as the ability to send data.
Dream is a software implementation of a DRM receiver. Reception requires an adaptor to be connected to the receiver's IF stage. HamDream uses only 2. HamDream is the basis for all the 2. The project is outdated and will not be supported any more.
WinDRM is the current software by Cesco and it uses either 2. It also has a digital voice mode. It serves as an engine to be used with other graphical user interfaces that wish to support the DRM mode. DRM plus. DRM can deliver FM-comparable sound quality, but on frequencies below 30 MHz long wave, medium wave and short wavewhich allow for very-long-distance signal propagation. DRM has been designed especially to use portions of older AM transmitter facilities such as antennas, avoiding major new investment.
DRM is robust against the fading and interference which often plagues conventional broadcasting on these frequency ranges.
