Re: [V4Protocol] Well...what's next after I get a connect?
- Try reading the help on ARQ and FEC operation. Click File, Help Contents, Click Typical FEC operation or Typical ARQ operation. They work a little differently.73,

I am wondering the same thing. I have tried using V-4 many times in the last year. I never have figured it out and gave up. FEC was the only one I could ever get connected to anyone with but after it was connected I could not send any text. I know others have had the same trouble.

Sorry to ask a dumb question - -just trying to get things going. Sent out a CQ today and surprisingly got a response! Tried several volleys back and forth with N4WI. Received several "Connection Requests and even saw it say "Connected" at one point. Tried to send some text but we never seemed to get a "handshake" with each other. Wasn't sure what to do other than try to "chat". My text went out (transmissions occurred). But not sure he received anything. Tried both ARQ and FEC modes. Once it says connected shouldn't we be able to chat? If a call sign or connect request comes on the screen, do I need to do something to make the connection happen??
Been listening and trying the frequency list I saw in another post:
80 m: 3583 MHz USB
40 m: 7073 MHz USB
30 m: 10131 MHz USB, 10,136 MHz USB
20 m: 14073 MHz USB
17 m: 18085 MHz USB, 18,103 MHz USB
15 m: 21073 MHz USB
Also - trying to see if we can adapt this for EmComm use. Has anyone had any success doing a V4 net in FEC mode? Multiple stations copying the same transmissons?
