由于Vara Modem收费和闭源的困扰,我在此决定不再向他人推荐VarAC

当前我的目标是采用了codec2 odfm引擎的FreeData,当前正处于Alpha开发阶段。基本上和VarAC是同样的功能,经过简单测试,应该是可以收发中文,但是现在软件开发阶段太早,还有着一定的问题,我想这个软件可以算是VarAC的上位替代了。

主程序最新版本7.1.4



VarAC V7.1.4 is here!With QSY recovery, Granular alert tags, Auto antenna tuning, TCP based CAT and more!









Hi VarACiers!
Auto-QSY has transformed the way we work with VarAC. The CF (Calling Frequency) is now more available for CQs and Beacons while QSOs and VMails exchange are happening mostly on slots.
But I always felt there was a missing part in that mechanism. Sometimes your partner doesn't QSY along with you (for various reasons) and the link is dropped. So...
???? Introducing: QSY Recovery
VarAC will now wait to receive an "I am alive" signal after the QSY sequence. If that does not happen in 20-25 seconds, it will fall back to the previous frequency so the link remains (Both sides need to run the latest version for this to work)
But that's not all...
let's talk about alert tags. They are super useful, BUT not useful enough... at least not until today.
  
???? Introducing: Granular alert tags
V7.1.4 extends the coverage of alert tags and so they cover all incoming data channels : Data stream, Beacons, Broadcasts and CQs. So you can now set a callsign as an alert tag and VarAC will alert you (with sound and visual) that it has just called CQ or beaconed.
Alert Tags






But hey - that's still not all.
VarAC lets you move between frequencies... and the missing piece in that puzzle was always the antenna tuner.
???? Introducing: Auto Antenna Tuning
VarAC can now trigger your RIG antenna tuner every time it moves between frequencies or only between bands (band-skip). This only works with supported rigs that has a CAT command that triggers the tuner.
And no, its still not all there is in V7.1.4.
Here is the full list of features and improvements.
A list of fixed bugs can be found in toward the end of this email.
New features
  • Auto QSY recovery: in case one of the sides failed to QSY both sides will return the me main frequency. This is done by new QSY accept / reject tags. Both sides need to be on the latest version for this to work.
  • Extended Alert tags: now searched in all broadcasts elements (FROM/TO/MSG), CQs and Beacons. You can now get alert for specific prefixes calling CQ/Beacon, set a Broadcast alert group etc.
  • Granular Alert tags: Enabling/Disabling alert tags per element (Beacon / CQ / Broadcast / DataStream)
  • Auto antenna tune upon frequency change. You can set to always or only during band skip.  (works with CAT & FLrig with and only with supported rigs).  
  • TCP based CAT control (For all those modern SDRs)
  • Frequency offset calibration - for those rigs with a drifted VFO
  • VarAC Start CAT command. CAT file now has a new parameter you can customize "VarACStartCmd=". This CAT command will be executed upon VarAC startup incase you want to put your rig in a certain state prior to start using VarAC.
  • "In QSO with" now shows the name of your QSO partner if already had a QSO with him in the past.
  • For Developers - New SQLite tables (Find more info HERE)
- "qso" - all VarAC QSOs.
- "contact" - all callsigns you ever connected with.
  • New VarAC.ini parameters (Only available by manually editing the INI file)
- ShowNoCatQSYPopup: Suppress QSY popups when no CAT control is available
- FrequencyListCustomFilePath: Set a custom frequency list file using a new VarAC.ini parameter
- SafetyPTTOffEveryMinute: enable/disable the safety mechanism of PTT OFF every minutes while idle
- VarACLogFileRetentionDays: How many days to keep entries in the VarAC.log file (default 30 days)
- PTTDisableAfterFreqChangeSeconds:  Temporarily disable PTT for X seconds after frequency change (for those antennas that need a long tune cycle before TX)
Enhancements/Changes
  • QSY Back now also prompts for user confirmation with Auto selection with a countdown timer.
  • Incoming ping is narrated as "Ping from..." Instead of "Connected to..."
  • Detecting misconfiguration where VarAC VARA modem type is not the same as the actual connected VARA modem.
  • Changing "DISCO" gesture to "RING!" which will create a long phone ring to drag an op attention.
  • "DING" gesture is now "DING!"
  • Keeping Broadcast windows always on top while open.
  • Forcing the use of VARA V4.7.3 or higher.
  • "Callsign block list" feature not also applied to incoming broadcasts.
  • "Callsign block list" now perform upper-case to all callsigns.
  • Reducing the max time for QSO on CF to 4 minutes (now with auto-QSY there is no need for CF Long links)
  • Disabled manual typing into the QSO-Log dropdowns RST-S, RST-R, BAND
  • Disabling VARA monitor for VARA-FM.
To upgrade from an existing VarAC version:
  1. Download the VarAC Zip file.
  2. Unpack to a temporary directory.
  3. Copy ONLY the VarAC.exe file to your existing VarAC installation directory.
As always - we are always there for you on our Forum, our Facebook group, and also on our new Telegram group.
I would like to thank our Beta team for investing their dedication in contentiously testing and bug-reporting so you can gave a smooth VarAC journey. TU guys ????????
73,
Irad 4Z1AC & the VarAC team.

Bug fixes
  • Alert tag highlights of texts in the Data-Stream were mispositioned.
  • Closing "Leave a message" popup upon disconnection.
  • Rig clicking on a top row in mail box did not automatically selected that line for he drop down menu actions.
  • Rig clicking on vmail in parking/sent/inbox did not automatically selected that line for he drop down menu actions.
  • If leaving settings without a change (just closing it) VarAC stopped reading the frequency from the RIG.
  • Not populating Log data during incoming/outgoing pings.
  • Cleaning the queue in case of incoming/outgoing ping
  • Not queueing a report on an outgoing ping
  • If no "welcome message" is configured and you have incoming connection, your first SNR sent report is not recorded which may fail the logging of he entire QSO.
  • Blocking broadcast/re-broadcast if PTT is disabled
  • If incoming files directory is a network drive that starts with a \\ it failed the file transfer
  • Fresh install did not populate the default VARA monitor port number 8350

这个东东还有人玩吗?
我在设置时提示没找到VARA MODEM的文件,
我看了下,压缩包里也没有VARA.EXE
是压缩包少了什么吗?

一度想过这个问题,想把js8等聊天软件,扩展为支持utf8之类的模式,貌似在应用层魔改下就能搞定
不过弱信号传播模式主打dx,本地语言聊天这个场景有点受限吧?还是英语更适合dx一些,否则给老外发GB2312他们也不认识啊

这两天我再测试,挺好用的,但是有些功能还不是太明白,继续研究学习。

欢迎大家都来测试中文聊天。

只做了3个QSO,国内玩的人太少。JS8只通过一个澳大利亚人。

vara hf v4.8.7那个烦人的弹窗,被我反汇编去掉了。hamcq社区有发帖。除了去掉弹窗,其实setting中的不能勾选Ignore KISS DCD的限制也被我去掉了,不知道这个功能有啥用处?
