Frequency Manager — 29 Comments

  1. This version of Frequency Manager has had a lot of routines updated and many bugs corrected. Also a requested feature has been added with the ability to use Omni-Rig for rig control. Also I have added an automatic updater which will notify the user when an update is available and download and install the update with no user intervention.

  2. I posted one small update that applies if you had the program previously installed. either you can download the update or go to the directory where you installed the gateway and delete the file FreqManager.mdb.
    This will fix the error of that file not getting deleted properly.

  3. Rick, shortly after upgrading to 2.2.0 I began getting ‘Runtime error ;35601′ Element not found’ on every app start. After that nothing works and I have to go to the Task Manager to delete the process. I updated to 2.2.1 but am having the same results. I used an app to test the mdb data base for errors but it didn’t seem to find any. I am running Windows XP, SP3. N4PY, Commander, and TRX-Pan were running when the first error occurred. I would appreciate any suggestions. You wrote a very useful utility.

  4. gday rick same as above and have two mates with the same problem
    gives the same error when trying to add entry
    also running dxlab windoz 7

    ps no problem with the first version but uninstalled it and now cant find it to downgrade 🙁

  5. I have been trying to find an answer for this but so far I can not find what is causing it. The problem is the database is getting written out of order and it is trying to load a field who’s parent has not been written yet. I have not had much time to work on this in the last few weeks due to the changes that I have had to make for the QRZLookup. I will get back on track soon..

  6. I’m having the same “35601” issues described in earlier comments …

    Workaround is to export often to a text file … And then when the badness happens, delete the FrequencyManager.mdb file, and run the program (will warn about initial creation), and import from last text file.
    Alternatively, keep regular snapshots of the .mdb file to drop back in place.

    I am looking forward to the organization this program provides!

  7. Hi Rick, I’m using your Frequency Manager with an Elecraft K2 and DXLab Commander. The K2 has RTTY-r mode which is what I use for all digital modes. However, Freq Manager does not have a RTTY-r mode so I can’t get the K2 to switch to this mode using Freq Manager. Freq Manager does have RTTY-L and RTTY-U, but my K2 does not know what to do with these modes. Otherwise, I fine program. 73 N5BCN

  9. Works very well with my Icom-735 and Commander, thanks. A very useful tool.

    AutoUpdate error ? .. ” file missing from server ”

  10. Current version does not seem to recognize commander version 12.3.6. Says “Commander is not loaded!”, however commander is loaded and running properly. Is this a known issue with version 2.2.1 of FrequecyManager?

  11. What OS are you using and if it is Windows 10 what version?? There are versions of Windows 10 that DDE was disabled in and that would stop the communication between Commander and the App. I will try and see if i can duplicate this as soon as I get a chance..

  12. Component ‘tabctl32.ocx’ or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invlaid

  13. Hi George..
    Sorry for not answering back sooner.. Been under the weather the past couple of weeks..

    I have not tried installing Frequency manager since I switched over th Windows 10 (still installing programs a slow pace). I will do that now and see what I get..

  14. George..
    I have placed a note on the Frequency Manager page now as there is a problem when running under windows 10. It seems that the same issue that made me re-write the QRZ lookup has bitten this application also. I wrote Frequency manager using VB2 and it seems that the controls that were used then are no longer compatible with windows 10.

    When I get done re-writing the LOTW utility I will add this to be next on the list for a make over.

  15. Ok Rick
    Tnx for the reply. I hope u feel better now. Its just a pain in the butt when you are running another program that wants control of the radio like CW Skimmer for example. Please shoot me a mail if you ever get it sorted for W10.

  16. Hi Rick
    I with many others using FLDIGI and other dig.mode programs stumble into CAT problems, where the solution seems to be “use OmniRig” for concurrency. As Dave G0WBX put it: “It would be good if there was a FlOmniRig bridge program, because OmniRig DOES support multiple programs (via DDE) where you need to “share” the current operating frequency/mode etc”.

    FLDIGI will not implement OmniRig communication because of portability.
    Have you considered implenting – or implmented – such an FLDIGI-OmniRig bridge?
    – Or do you see another solution to that problem?

    My other dig.mode programs use OmniRig, which work fine.

  17. Hi Poul..
    I have played around with Omni-rig between Omnirig/Logger32 but I have just been to busy to find time and sit down and write a full blown gateway. Let me get some projects taken care of and we will see what happens. I still have the source that I was working on so the start is half the effort..

  18. Great, a think many will thank you!
    Take your time, don’t want to stress you 😉

  19. Any news on a future FLDIGI-OmniRig bridge? Just curious.
    (struggling to get different softwares talk to the rig…)

  20. Hi Poul..
    No there has not. I have 2 other programs I need to do alot of work on yet before I will be able toget to that. Once I can I will post it here…

    73 Rick n2AMG

  21. Hi Keith..
    Unfortunately no. The whole program needs to be written as some of the controls I use no longer function correctly with Windows 10. I have 2 or 3 programs ahead of working on this and 2 of them need a lot of work.
    I will post something I get that completed.

  22. Hi Keith
    I am discussing CAT and FLDIGI with a fellow ham, and came to think of our conversion about a potential future FLDIGI-OmniRig bridge. I understand it is more complicated nowdays and you have a lot to do, but may I just say that I am still interested if such a bridge is developed.
    (And if you would need a beta tester someday… 😉

  25. Hi Poul..
