Aether and Fldigi Logging Script

Author : Alan Hawrylyshen (K2ACK)

This script is designed to be called from an fldigi macro. It will open a new QSO log in Aether.

This script can be called from fldigi on a Mac platform using a macro button.

Note - this script is written in Python, a powerful scripting language that is installed on every Mac. You don't need to edit the script or understand Python to make this work for you.

Here is the macro text I use in the fldigi macro.:

<EXEC>$HOME/.fldigi/scripts/fldigi-aether-logger.py & </EXEC>

The above macro can be directly copied into your Log QSO Macro definition window in fldigi.

Release History

v0.5:
  • Updated to support a '--no-xxxx' argument which will skip logging

any FLDIGI environment variables that match the xxxx part of the arg (case insensitive)

v0.4 :
  • Updated to correct error rounding frequencies.
v0.3:
  • General improvements.

Arguments

--no-launch:
Do not start Aether from the script - assume it is already running.
--test:
Use internal test data to validate the script from the command line.
--launch:
Force Aether to launch - default behavior.
--debug:
Print out key information of script execution on stdout, will appear in fldigi window.
--no-xxxxx:

Skip logging any environment variable that matches xxxxx. (Case insensitive). Can be used (for example) to skip recording the frequency by using:

fldigi-aether-logger.py --no-freq

This presumes that this script is called fldigi-aether-logger.py AND That this script is in $HOME/.fldigi/scripts with the execute bit set.

chmod 755 $HOME/.fldigi/scripts/fldigi-aether-logger.py

for more:

man chmod

If you run this with --debug (modify the macro), you should see useful debugging info in the transmit window.

If you run this from the command line to test, you can run with --test and --debug to use the built in test data. You should see an RTTY log entry created for W1AX.

This is a LONG way from complete, but it is working for now.

Best, 73 Alan K2ACK
