    If you want to swap the I&Q channels...what line is changed in the quisk_conf.py file...? Thanks. Gary, N5XED

      I believe this can be done by simply exchanging the 1 and 0 in the following lines of the quisk_conf.py file: channel_i = 1 # Soundcard index of in-phase

        channel_i = 1 # Soundcard index of in-phase channel: 0, 1, 2, ...
        channel_q = 0 # Soundcard index of quadrature channel: 0, 1, 2, ..

        ie:

        channel_i=0
        channel_q=1

                  Hi all!

                  I built my Ensemble RxTx a month ago and have been trying it barefoot under Linux with Quisk and Fldigi. Works fairly well, as I can see myself on the usually spots on pskreporter. About 1/5 to 1/10 times I transmit and unkey, the rxtx doesn't get the signal to turn off the ptt, and I have to do it manually. I don't know whether this is the hardware or Quisk's problem, so can any of you tell me if this issue has been seen before, or otherwise point me to a Quisk group/forum?

                  Thanks!

                    It is just possible something is causing the switching to be borderline. If all voltages are close to Robby's tests it is probably
                    not at fault.

                            Definitely weird.
                            The problem has to be elsewhere if it's OK on RX, switches to TX but doesn't release when switching back to RX.
                            Possibly a config problem if "usbsoftrock ptt on" and "usbsoftrock ptt off" works.

                            An alternative would be to try fldigi native, that s how I used it. I never read Jim s notes on using fldigi and quisk as it seemed unnecessary when fldigi on

                            Sid,

                            It is true that you can run the radio control using hamlib within FlDigi, but you cannot properly run it's modems. It decodes and runs from the I/Q stream for some formats, but cannot properly suppress images for transmit. I have discussed this with the author to see if it is planned to have some sort of conversion of i/Q to USB/LSB but no code exists yet to accomplish this.

                            Are you somehow converting the I/Q data stream as described above?

                            Am I wrong in my understanding?

                            It is just possible something is causing the switching to be borderline. If all voltages are close to Robby's tests it is probably
                            not at fault.

                            It is true that you can run the radio control using hamlib within FlDigi, but you cannot properly run it's modems. It decodes and runs from the I/Q stream for some formats, but cannot properly suppress images for transmit. I have discussed this with the author to see if it is planned to have some sort of conversion of i/Q to USB/LSB but no code exists yet to accomplish this.

                            Are you somehow converting the I/Q data stream as described above?

                            Am I wrong in my understanding?
