Logger32 – Fldigi Gateway
Logger32 Fldigi Gateway allows the program Fldigi v3.20.b1 or higher to interface with Logger32 and act as an almost drop-in replacement for Logger32 internal soundcard application.
Current Version: 1.5.0
Full Install Download:L32-FldigiGateway150FullInstall
Current Update Download:L32-FldigiGatewayUpdate.zip
Current Version: 220.127.116.11
The current versions of Fldigi can be found here. www.w1hkj.com
I have a problem with configuring L32-Fldigi Gateway.
Namely, in readme.txt you said following: “4. In the configuration for Fldigi under Rig Control click on the Ext tab and place a checkmark.”
I use the newest version of Fldigi (3.10) and it successfully loads together with L32, but there is no EXT tab under Rig Control in Fldigi… Or I can’t see it? 🙂
When I try to transfer QSO data from Fldigi to L32 I got an error: “Run time error 13: Type mismatch”.
When I log QSO in Fldigi, it does not appear in L32 loogbook.
Any help about this? Thanks in advance,
Unfortunatly there is a bug in the 3.10 version of Fldigi that makes it not function correctly with my gateway. Dave has promised me that he has a fix in place and it will be in the next update they make. Last I emailed him was 2 weeks ago and he said soon..
The tab is now called XML-RPC.
Thanks for prompt answer. I am testing now old version of Fldigi (3.03.1) and Gateway works with it like a charm. Thanks for nice piece of software.
I’ve been waiting with bated breath since the beginning of February – is there any hope for the bug fix in Fldigi, or should i give up and reinstall an older version? I really like the things they’ve fixed in 3.10, but I liked having a nearly integrated Fldigi/Logger32 better.
I would reinstall the older version. Dave keeps saying he wants to get the new version out but then there is an update to us beta testers with something else added or fixed. He told me shortly after the new version was released that it would only be a matter of days and then we recieved version A to test we are now on version O if that tells you anything…
OK Rick, thank you for the prompt response. I guess everyone has heir own priorities, and it’s hard to complain about free software!
Just cannot get the link to work.
Have followed the instructions but get the error message Runtime Error 76 Path Not Found.
Click on OK brings up a box L32Fldigi Gateway
Have set up the path in L32 utilities as 3. in the setup. Clicking on SetFldigiPath does nothing, About does nothing, Main is blank, Click on Setup and checked Set Fldigi always on top, Log Rig Frequency.
In the Fldigi Frequency appears the Waterfall Audio Freq not the Rig.
Any help or advice appreciated
Cheers, Glynn GW4MVA
I’m looking for 1 or 2 more Beta testers. If your intrested please email me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am very happy using Fldigi. Your last version with my FT-950 interfacing and QRZ lookup needs really no improvement.
Testing Logger32 Gateway brings allready described issues, additional issue is deleted callsign and name from FLdigi windows after Fldigi QRZ lookup during QSO.(very annoying).In Logger32 is also QRZ lookup set.Seems like conflict of both lookups.
Well, I can live without Logger 32 and wait patiently, till you can find your time to fix it.
Thank you very much for really nice Fldigi.

Sorry Rick, I mixed up your software with W1HKJ one.
At the other hand Gateway is very interesting supplement to Fldigi and Logger32, hopefully working well in future.

Your post Logger32 – Fldigi Gateway – N2AMG’s Place was very interesting when I found it over google on Friday by my search for qrz. I have your blog now in my bookmarks and I visit your blog again, soon. Take care.
Have run into the dreaded ST6UNST problem. Had a few computer problems and cannot now re-install the Logger32 Fldigi bridge. Running Logger32 3.20 and fldigi 3.12.4 but I suspect it is more of a Win XP problem.
Any clues please?

Have installed latest versions of Loger32 (3.21.0), Fldigi (3.12.4) and L32FldigiGateway (1.2). Everything works so far & can receive using Fldigi in various modes and automatically info is transferred to L32. But I cannot transmit from Fldigi, specifically the PTT is not operating. Fldigi is set to Use XML-RPC. I can transmit from L32 ok so it seems that the gateway is not passing the PTT message from Fldigi to L32. I am using an Elecraft K3. Any ideas – I have been struggling with this for a while now.

Where does the programme save the configuration for the path to fldigi?
I am using the current alpha version of fldigi, and the latest logger32 and gateway programmes. All log detail except for frequency, and fields 6 and 7 are transferring. albeit very slowly.
The new Logger32-Fldigi Gateway is wonderful. It is great to have Fldigi in Logger32 since the MMVARI has not been updated in a long time. Thanks for the work you do to make ham radio more fun for all of us.
I wonder if you can help me with what might be kind of a convoluted question. I love Logger 32 as my general logging program but would like to try some of the other digital programs like fldigi. Your gateway seems just the ticket. The problem is that I have a Flex 5000A radio and would like to get everything “talking” together. I already have Logger 32 working with the Flex so where do I go from here? Do I use the bridge to get to Fldigi or do I need to get Fldigi talking to the Flex? I hope it makes sense what I’m asking. I’m just trying to find out what order everything needs to be communicating in.
I always start the Fldigi Gateway first, and only after it and FLdigi are up and running do I start up Commander, and then DXKeeper, and then Pathfinder.
I often have to move my transceiver’s (OMNI VII) tuning knob before the transceiver frequency is displayed in Fldigi. But even more annoying, often Fldigi does not start communicating with DXKeeper for quite a while. I can double click on a station’s call sign, and it appears in the Call field in Fldigi, but it does not get copied into DXKeeper or Pathfinder. After a while it may start working. Sometimes I have to stop and restart DXKeeper and Pathfinder a few times.
I have the gateway configured so that rig control is done by Commander, not by Fldigi. This always worked ok in the past.
Originally it was set to log via TCP. I changed it to DDE and that didn’t seem to make any difference, so I changed it back to TCP.
I first started noticing this problem around June. I’m not sure if it existed in releases that I got before that time. I always install new releases as soon as they are available.
I’m using FL-Logger gateway. It took a good few hours to get it running but once I tried RTFM all was well in a few minutes (a lesson there).
Reason for the post is I may have spotted a bug. If you tick the send eQSL box Logger flags as send LoTW, if you tick LoTW it flags as eQSL (my preferred option).
Not a life altering issue but thought I’d mention it.
Great software by the way.
I am having real trouble getting this to work with Win7(64bit) and the latest versions of Logger32 & Fldigi. If I configure Fldigi and run it directly, it works as advertised with my Flex5K. If I install the gateway and run Fldigi (which opens when I open Logger32) it often hangs….and if it does connect, the RigCat checked box becomes unchecked. Utility is set OK on Logger32. Any sugestions gratefully received.
will the FLdigi Gateway work also with linux or is it only a windows app for now ?
ok many tks
I installed Logger32Fldigi here, and have some issues.
I use the Fldigi here http://www.urbakken.dk/fldigi.jpg
I get this error http://www.urbakken.dk/error.jpg
From time to time I also get an error 13 (run-time error)
What is it about Rick ?
can you tell me how to connect your program to fldigi so i can send to lotw
Rick if u have time try your gateway with new logger32 version (i have 3.47.19 atm), with this version the gway dont work .. if i downgrade to logger32 v 3.46.75 all return ok and work perfectly.. i hope you have time for this.. tnx for your work
Morning Rick. Running latest L32 3.49.92 and FLDigi 3.21.78 and ur latest/ Windows Vista with Icom IC-7200 using the USB (latest driver installed) com10/19.2k. Rig keys and op fine with all but can’t change freq off spot window unless I activate radio port in L32 which will not let me then key radio in fldsigi. I hate to lose to ability to click on spots and still have FLdigi L32 work together. Any ideas what the heck I am missing? I’ve tried ever trick I can think of so now I have to ask the expert. 😉
Thanks de Larry

I should add that when I try to save the hamlib for the 7200 and save config. I does fine, When I attempt to do it using the bridge it acts like oit is but I have to setup hamlib everytime I open it up with the bridge. de Larry
Not worked with new Logger32 version 3.49.131
Installed the Gateway (dated 25/03/2010) on a Win7 machine,
The link to Logger32 ver 3.49.300 works for a couple of QSO’s then I receive ‘miss match’ error and the link between the 2 programs is broken.
I am running: Gateway 1.5.06 FLDigi 3.23.02 LOGGEr32 3.50 on WIN10
All setup as in the readme text, but no connection to LOGGER32
Any help, thanks Gerd – DL8PG
A friend of mine and I installed FLDIGI onto my XP machine and tried today. Install went well and I can open up the program and copy PSK31 – which is my goal. I also use Logger32 as my daily logging program. When trying to set up the Logger32 Gateway I have problems. PSK31 is still being copied but my Logger32 frequency keeps changing to some weird frequency and when I reset it it stays for a few seconds then jumps again to some weird freq. The freq readout on the FLDGI program remains the same but the readout in the Logger32 ewntry window keeps changing. Any suggestions?

If I launch fldigi through L32-fldigi-GW it boots with English language menu, also if another language is setted. If I launch it without your gateway, correct language is loaded. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you
Hi Rick, there’re any news about my last request?
I have not found a way to do this thru the XMLRPC settings that are used when I load Fldigi. At some point when I get time I will dig further and see if there is a way I can set it by updating the Fldigi perfs file when it loads..

Ver 4+ of fldigi doesn’t have an xml rpc tab. Is the program dead in the water, or is there a work around ?
73 de Tom K5VJZ
The author removed the XMLRCP tab but now all of the XMLRCP commands are built in and active all the time. SO it still works with Fldigi..
I do need to re-write this app as the XMLRCP controls used in the current version have a tendency to not work with Windows 10. On some systems it works fine on others it does not. I just need time to work on it..

I installed flidji on my pc, then I downloaded the Flidgi gateway program and updated it as indicated.
I modified what to do in Log32 by indicating the external program and the direction, I ticked the small box so that Flidgi launches when Log32 starts, but once Log32 is launched on the computer, I have a window: L32 Flidgi gateway and it says: waiting for Flidgi to load…
and nothing happens.
I do not know what to do anymore
could you help me

I had explained in a previous email to you that the gateway is not functioning any longer due to it needing to be re-written using modern software controls. The controls I used in writting that application some do not work with newer OS’s. This is what is causing the issues you are seeing. The program is going to be re-written I just am not sure when that will happen as I am busy with work..
