The CAT operation for the FT847 works just fine using a Rig Expert modem interface. This automaticaly does the rs232 null modem condition. Beware it may require a null modem, crossed 9-pin rs232 to work, for some rigs. These can be bought as a unit or a rs232 plug can be re-wired, quite simple.
Would this program like it to be incorporatedsay, MixW, as a program selection, as for other modes..
Me he bajado el programa pero no soy capaz de instalarlo, cuando ejecuto el programa de instalación, me sale un mensaje de error, y me dice que cierre todas la aplicaciones y vuelva ejecutar el programa, pero tengo todos los programas cerrados.
CONGRATS FOR CALLSIGN
WHEN DO WE MEET ON AIR ? ?
i have waited … and success … 616 (no icons) does work
so maybe now you know why other version(s) did not?!?
or what is reason for 2 different one??
in 603w64 cat does work fine
in new616(noicons) cat does not work with ic765…
in 503 i could set cat to com4 (usb-cat-cable) and ptt to com1
(real seriell rs232 with optocoupler for ptt)
in 616 the soft says rig not found
and there is no option to set cat and ptt to different com ports like in 603
cat polling does make rfi problems
i have a slight crack-crack.crack.sound in my transmit audio
set poll interval to 1000ms … every second that cracking sound
set to 200 … guess what… every 0.2 second that sound
785 uses 1200 baud but can be switched to 4800 and 9600
didn´t try that yet … maybe different baud does not make that noise …
(or falls out off audio passband)
but for that i have to open the rig and flip some switches
would it be possible to stop polling of usb while transmitting??
only one at start (for the rigs that uses cat for ptt) and the next poll at the end of transmitting…
i have seen that there is another (not needed) poll if you switch from trx to rx
direct when pressing ptt button a second time … that should only be at the end when buffer is empty (so a few seconds later)
if the poll would only be at begin and end there were no rfi noises anymore ….
well i just reinstalled evrything onto my win 7 pc … and omnirig wont run my ft897d where before i reinstalled it was ok … weird cuz the only difference is i have put 64bit win7 on where i was using 32bit before
ROS 6.2.0 does not accept the long passwords. For the radio i use a password 12 characters ( numbers and letters ) but ROS 6.2.0 accept only 10 characters.
Other problem in ROS6.2.0
In the ADIF window the button under HAMLOG.EU is not readable . See screenshot in the attachment. I suppose it is a button archive !!!! but not sure.
Best 73′s José
620 and 621 … tried both and both worked from the first moment …
but i have one question: why in the versions before you store ros ini in different folder as now and why is it set to c:/programs/ros. ini regardless if ros is installed on a different drive and folder
for the shortcut on desktop i set to be e:afu/ros to be the workfolder but ros ignores that and makes an own folder in drive c …
is that needed by the vista or win64 users or why it is nozt stored where it was befor??? could it not be stored in the rosfolder???
all other things as before … fine software
Well i’m blocked here….
I have the sound card on mainboard, also have a second soundcard (PSI) in my computer.
I use USB soundcard (Signalink) for digimodes.
But i get this error, and can’t pass…. Try to locate older version , to see if it works with it..
I just read your interesting interview (http://www.dxcoffee.com/ita/2010/09/13/mr-ros-speaks-out-an-exclusive-interview/). Many thanks for providing us with your great mode.
One thing that concerns me as (soon to be) ham with a linux-only system is the unavailability of the source code and/or the mode’s specs (Running ROS in a windows emulation layer such as Wine isn’t a really great option, as running linux programs under windows inside a virtualized linux is, esp. on low-end hardware such as netbooks). I understand your concerns about the challenge to release a moving target, but on the other hand, many open source projects achieve fast progress with shared development.
Anyway, it is your idea and your code, so it’s your decision
Using an IC706 with this version the CAT connection drops out periodically and you have to re search for the rig. Connects back immediately. Anyone else found this? Excellent software – enjoying the mode 73 de Mike
I have Yaesu VR-5000. Created RIOG not working. Non stop dispaly : searching …. and for 3-5 minuts: RIF NOT FOUND. My connection os ok. Other program (FTBCAT) normally working with CAT on this (my) radio. Any ideas ? Any other CAT from ROS not working (RIG NOT FOUND)
A small ‘bug’ has crept in with ROS recently with CAT operation.
With the Icom IC-756PROIII I have the mode generally set to USB-D (USB Data) to enable the Accessory Port for digital operation.
On starting ROS with CAT enabled, this mode is reset to USB which then requires the operator to manually change back the mode to USB-D.
For some operators, USB is fine if your SignaLink USB (for example) is connected to the front “Mic” socket, but for those who use the “ACC” ports at the rear of the rig USB-D or its equivilent is needed.
623 (w64) works fine on 1.8 gig laptop, win xp sp3, cat works fb after we solved the cat with ic765 (you remember the session on my pc with teamview?!?)

Dear Jose, After many years, at the behest of a friend I have taken up ham radio again. Your Ros v6.2.7 Beta amazing, signal buried in noise at slow data rate; beats cw. Am using Toshiba P200D with Vista to Yaesu FT747, no vox. And USB to RS232, to TTL converter to CAT. RX, TX, RTS, CTS are available. I cannot get RTS to key (PTT). ROS doesn’t list FT747 as a supported radio. Can you help?
Hola jose: Hace un par de dias que estoy batallando con el programa ROS v6.3.5, pero todavia no he conseguido hacerme con él, debido a que no encuentro un modo de empleo que se adapte a este programa, tengo hecho muchos comunicados en PSK31, y con el ROS, que encuentro que es magnifico, me parece que no me he bajado el programa adecuado para HF.
¿Puedes indicarme de donde me puedo bajar el programa adecuado para HF? Gracias anticipadas 73 de Paco EA3PZ
Hello Jose,i’m having big trouble to run ROS with Win 7 as soon as i execute install exe this causes computer to crash.I tried dowloading from the 3 different sources and they all do the same.It seems to open up correctly on win xp using a virtual computer on my win 7 but now i can’t seem to get it to connect,it shows no port.I’ve tried 3 versions since 6.2.9 including the most recent.Each time deleting the older version.Has Anybody got it working on windows 7 ?.
Llevo bastante tiempo trabajando modos digitales, y estoy intentando comenzar con ROS. Acabo de bajar el programa, pero no encuentro ninguna página en español que nos facilite las cosas a quienes no hablamos inglés.
¿Hay alguna página con detalles de configuración y uso en nuestro idioma?
Hay un enlace para descarga que se llama ROS F.A.Q en Español con preguntas y respuestas básicas. Lo que es el manual creo que no hace falta porque es muy sencillo de manejar y está en 12 idiomas incluído español.
Miraré las FAQs que comentas y seguramente conseguiré ponerlo en funcionamiento. De todos modos, tratandose de un programa originado en España, entiendo que sería interesante disponer de una página con material de consulta y foro en nuestro idioma.
Felicitaciones por tu trabajo, por el éxito obtenido por este nuevo modo y por la gran acogida que se ha puesto de manifiesto.
Jose: VOACAP coverage works very well but Point to Point is different.
You say to press SHORT or LONG buttons and you show them next to the callsign area in the picture.
I do not have those buttons on my screen.
Thanks José. Obviously I ran the Install exe and it said installed successfully or something but nothing at all has happened. No icons to click, no uninstall entry to undo anything the install program did can be found. Running the other 2 exe files does nothing, they terminate immediately with no error message or anything. I’m worried that a faulty install program which clearly says installed okay when it isn’t installed at all might also have done other silly things like overwriting my system DLL or OCXs with older versions.
This worked first time in Windows 7 ‘home edition’ I did NOT use the Install exe file though. Just unzipped the files into the WORKING directory and ran from their. Both variants (icons/no icons) work.
Am using on-line SDR as input source in this setup. Seems to work fine.
Felicidades a Jose Alberto por esta ultima versión del ROS, comentar que las últimas versiones de este programa me habían dado problemas a la hora de la rececpción y la transmisión pero esta última me funciona muy bien. La incorporación del VOACAP y la subida automáticas de los QSO al hamlog.eu, hrdlog y eqsl.cc son funcionalidades geniales que no he visto en otros programas de comunicaciones diigitales.
Felicitaciones por regalarnos este nuevo modo digital ,mi problema es q’ casi siempre el Vumetro de adquisicion de trama esta en la zona roja ???
Y el Vumetro de viterbi (no se que indica ) tambien esta de igual manera en la zona roja, ya logre comunicar solo una vez .
In cause ROS modem 6.5.3
Thanks for great SDR support.
I found improvement support of PL2303 chip, another cheap variant of FTDI 232 chip. This is used in low cost CAT cable. Now is this RIG CAT definitevely works great. http://www.ok1cjb.cz/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=268:2-420&catid=19:rx-a-trx&Itemid=6
Virtual COM 3 works perfectly with FT-817 under older OS Win XP SP3 (home)
I suppose success progress also with O.S. Win Vista and 7.
Thank you very much
DECODE to ALL: Decode any message
DECODE to “EA5HVK”: Decode only messages from EA5HVK
decode only FROM ea5hvk or decode only TO ea5hvk ??? what is correct?
so does if the switch is set to on the soft only decodes messages that are to you or from you???
i know that it is for 2 stations to stay “connected” … so far so good …
i guess you send something in the start sequence … ok on that …
but question is does the soft only decodes text from the other station (that i have in the callsign field) …means in start you send the (others)call as “sent from” text …
or does the soft receives only text that is sent to “me” ??? so in start you sent (my) call as “sent to” text???
example: we both have qso (bfc and hvk) …
if we both switch decode switch to on … you sent text to me … now is my soft receiving only FROM hvk or only TO bfc??? (2 different things for sure!!)
i ask cause in the first way nobody else could intrude in our qso … in second way somebody else could say “break pse qrx to bfc (or to hvk .. depends on who the third will speak to)… so question is do you sent the callsign as sent to or sent from text?!?!? (or both?!?)
should be possible for a third station to get into our qso (example: jesus gets to us and wants to say hello to you or to me)
greetz beta function control
I have found a (very)smalll quirk but it is a little annoying to me
It seems that ROS reacts to keyboard function keys even if it does not have the focus.
So, doing other things while running a ROS beacon in background, every time I press (for example) F5, the STATION macro text is appended to the beacon string.
Sometimes I unintentionally make the beacon text very long!
could you explain why you make it this way???
(ok it is that more stations can share a qrg … right?)
no third station could make a break in a running qso
and i think that is not ok
in the other solution a third could sent a break to one of the 2 stations … way better i think … but we could ask the other users …. so to all ros fans, users , club members:
WHAT DO YOU THINK? … should it be possible if 2 ststions are “linked” for a third station to break in the qso ?
beta function control
i would like to have a good explanation for that from jose
I have installed the last version on my computer but my Cat System is not recognized. My trx is FT840 and my interface CAT is MAX232 on com port 3. For info my rig is: Yaesu FT840, Cat System home made, SignaLink interface, Asus P4 Intel dualcore 3Ghz, 4mb ram
Hello José, I am using Elecraft K3 with an external amplifier 6W in 600W out. So I do ROS sometimes with 1-2W Input and get 150W out. I am using CAT. With pwr <5W ROS automatically added /QRP to my callsign. That´s not right, because 150W going out. A software switch (external PA) should solve the problem, that not /QRP is added if pwr of my transceiver is <5W.

Hola a todos
Tengo un problema al instalar la version 6.7.3, cuando cliqueo Ros.install me sale un cartel que pone “installed successfully” y cuando le doy al exe de ros para iniciar el programa me pone
“File C:\Users\Usuario\Desktop\jose\Ros\cty.dat not found” utilizo Win7. En Xp no me daba ese problema. Gracias.
Gracias por la respuesta josé Alberto, lo tenia en otro lado. Ahora de dice que le audio device input not available y se cierra y nada de nada. He mirado por la web y el programa dice que es compatible con Win7!. ¿ Que tengo que hacer para configuralo con Win7?.
Buenas José Alberto, si la clavija esta tanto Rx como TX ya que yo hago Psk31,sstv con HRD y sin nigun problema e incluso cuando estaba con XPpro hacia ROS y fantastico, pero desde que he querido instalarlo en win7 nada mas que cartelitos y es por eso nada más. Gracias
Hello Jose Alberto
I installed version 6.7.5 (in the same folder as the previous version) when starting the new version I get a popup “profile error character not valid” after “OK” I get new popup “Run-time error 5 Invalid procedure or argument.
So ros don’t run.
here Windows XP pack 3
I am using 2 profiles
the file ros.ini is stored in the folder \program Files\ros
I am using without problem ros 6.7.4
have a good day
thanks for your good work and efficient software;
I’m using qrp rig Flexradio 1500 (5w) and i didn’t succeed to configure the software to obtain “/qrp” after my call.
The single way i know is to use 5% of the power with APC and 5% of 5w is not to much
What am I missing ?
Tengo un pequeño problema con ROS, ya que el programa pueda conversar con el
Martin PM-SDR de tipo de cambio (sólo setare la función adecuada).
El problema es este, si lanzo directamente ROS
, Esto no es un diálogo con mi Rx-PM SDR (la casilla correspondiente etiqueta se mantiene el rojo (no “la oportunidad de gestionar las frecuencias).
Después de varios intentos descubrí que sólo si inicia por primera vez el software se ejecute ROS Simon “SDR de consola” y luego me voy a lanzar de inmediato ROS, entonces y sólo ahora el diálogo entre ROS y PM SDR-está bien (placa de color verde, entonces vamos y posibilidades “tipo de cambio).
Esto no sucede si el primer lanzamiento “Winrad” o sotware que yo uso para más con mi PM-SDR “HDSDR”.
Parece que hay algún parámetro de la comunicación a través de USB que se establece en el valor en Aceptar para comunicarse con los ROS que sólo “SDR-consola” utiliza.
El problema es que soy un ignorante!
¿Me pueden ayudar a resolver este problema!
Otra pregunta, la banda cambia el PM-SDR recibe la orden de selección del filtro en la?
Gracias de antemano.

Not been using ROS for a while, but got back on to 20m with ROS during the last week, with the latest version.
Lots of NEW gimmicks, etc.,
However, can someone please clarify, which frequencies we should or should not be using on 20m.
I note from a quick search of the NET that 14101 and 14107 appear to be used for other modes. Certainly there appears to be lots of complaints from users of other modes, about ROS on these frequencies.
Is this why I’m yet to hear a station on 14107 and can call and call on 14101 with very very few responses, all of which have been kept very short.
14103 and 14105 seem to be quite busy.
Are we avoiding 14101 and 14107 ?
If so, why are these options in the programme ?
Also, are there any other frequencies, on other bands, that I should be avoiding ?
If we could use wider bandwidth , then we could increase the dispersion and reduce the power in each discreet ‘tx’ pulse , to the point , no one would know ‘we’ where transmitting , just merge into the broad band plt noise
Thank you for your help last friday but signal weaker than minus 18 db are still mosly “bad crc” labelled.
I tried with another radio : softrock + emu0202 + ROS.(sdr option)
How can I monitor the phase and gain for best rejection ?
Buenos días Jose Alberto. Me gustaría poder usar ROS con el Funcube Dongle USB (http://www.funcubedongle.com) para que todo lo que escuche en la banda de 2 metros, en estos tiempos de tropo, lo meta a internet a través de tu software. ¿Esto sería posible? Otro día quedamos para hacer qso con la antena de aro magnetico ALexloop que te comente días atras. 73 de Christian EA4EUN
I’m new to ROS, and must congratulate you and friends for this great software.
It has some very nice tools for propagation research, like the bcn mode with report. I’m quite involved in long DX VHF/UHF terrestrial.
I wonder if in next versions, maybe, there would be a possibility to include a free qrg that you can enter on bcn mode. In the mean time, while bcn mode, avoid the 3 min listenning, after rxing a signal on the band.
I use a TS2000 kenwood and a signalinkusb interface which is ok without modification. However, the cat doesn’t work properly to drive the frequency automatically, i must use the vfo to display the correct frequency on TX/RX. The other functions (PW, AT) are ok but i note the AT is “on” by default at the sofware opening while it is “off” in the ROS window: clicking twice on the tuner button shut down the AT on TX/RX.
ok 1st of december
installed new version
sometimes the rig is found but many times it is not!
soft says rig not found, close ham radio deluxe
but i have no hrd running
sometimes when receiving the soft hangs (maybe someone using old version and the soft can not decode?!?) or is there another fault?
the cat scanning worked superb in the previous version
you know we had the problem with the ic765 were we made the teamview meeting … did you change the cat control or the scanning?
if yes … please chage it back or find a different solution … cause before it worked fine (even if i changed the port from com4 to com 6) one click and rig was found
…now it doesnt work or better say only sometimes rig is found)
After using ros v6.8.9 with cat system on Yaesu ft-897 the speed of port com, used by Cat as been put on default (4800 bauds) menu 19, so others programs like HRD ,Easypal … where i had put on 9600 bds no longer working.
Acabo de instalar la nueva version v6.9.1 pero al intentar conectar el Yaesu 857 al CAT usando el interface Digicat, después de escuchar varios reles en la radio, el programa se pasa a ícono rojo e indica que cierre el Ham Radio Deluxe, cuando el HRD no lo tengo instalado.
Con las versiones anteriores la detección del CAT era en segundos. ¿Que podría estar pasando?
i use powersdr and soft switch in auto on digi mode , mode which dont run nice with ros. Does it possible to switch in sub mode in auto? I tried to run in digimode the bandwith is not not enough great to tx or rx ros signal .
thank in advance for infos
hello jose (guessing this is fastest way to catch you)
for opera left window: what are black brown and red received signals are?!? different signal levels? (local or dx)
0 to -20db black
-20 to -30 orange
-30 to ? red
i was just gussing after i have seen different levels in different colours …
So in my opinion is a possible use the evaluation quality CRC BAD or OK for switching between ROS 8 or ROS 16 etc….
Or another way is a counting bit rate for switching “robust” mode.
Of course on start and end of transmition must be send /receive packet for changing mode of the far radio.
The same theory using RSID (MultiPSK, Fldigi)
73! and Thanks for replay.
Thank you José Nieto, so this high speed data mode is usefull on VHF/UHF/SHF, main reason is a wide band transmition???
This mode will replace Pactor maybe???.
There is more aspects, data speed (rate) , anti-jamming ability
Sorry, but this is only theory.
Generally, ROS is a perfect developed program and also Opera.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GREAT JOB.
I am running v6.9.2 & v6.9.4 with my Kenwood TS-480, but I am not able to connect it via rig-mode. Via Vox is no problem, com-Mode and rig-mode are resulting in a “hung” application. Are there any suggestions to solve the problem ?
I will be happy to test any improvements !
btw. Using it with WinXP SP3 & USB-Com-Adapter (which is running fine with all other apps [HamOffice, HamRadio deluxe and others]).
Thanks for the help, José Alberto gave me this afternoon.
Fast and complete solution to all errors.
Main problem was the Bluetooth-driver (bluetooth-stack deinstalled). After that and discovering some weird things in combination with HRD, all runs fine now. (Be sure to switch your rig off after leaving HRD – mine is a TS-480SAT with USB-serial-adapter).
Excellent work !
Thanks Detlef we also have ZL2LI Len and ZL2FT on ROS at the other end of the world hi not sure how many ZL in Total using ROS. 73 I got no reply as using 28103 28105 instead of 28195
any comments? 73 de Pete
Hola de nuevo José Antonio!
Te respondo por este medio ya que me han vuelto a devolver el
e-mail con la nueva dirección. Debe ser cosa de mi servidor.
No sé a que te refieres, tengo la emisora configurada
a 1200 bauds y la dirección a 28H.
En cuanto a los drivers si te refieres a los del adaptador USB/serie
ya los reinstalé.
Me bajaré el TeamViewer y ya te avisaré.
I am looking to write an article for my club newsletter in respect of ROS . Do you have any articles I could use with your permission to best illustrate the technical and other aspects of this interesting software
hi Jose’ Alberto,
it is possible to automatically save in ascii text file the spots received by OPERA software ?? (substantially the info presented in the left windows , with possibly a date time stamp ).. this is because I use OPERA in a remote location not connected to internet, and every power failure I lost all data received ..
compliments for your work .. thanks a lot for attention .. 73 de Mauro IK1WVQ
Opera is able to replace NCDXF beacon net! Much more stations are giving an exact measuring. So is a possible to add graphic diagram (map) like WSPR ??? ASCII log is a very good idea.
73! Excellent job Alberto.
Hola a todos, estoy intentando transmitir pero a pesar de hacer CAT correctamente y poder cambiar de freq y hacer PTT cuando transmito no sale audio. Tengo una FT-950 a la que le paso el audio por el conector trasero, el resto de programas q tengo funcionan perfectamente (HRD, JT65HF…), tb he comprobado que tengo correctamente seleccionada la tarjeta de sonido… que puedo estar haciendo mal? Gracias de antemano. EA2DCF
Out of curiosity why should somebody be forced to join yet another Yahoo group just in order to download the latest beta version of Opera? Just started trying out opera and it would be nice to start out with the newest version………
Hi all, i have a big problem and I would like to solve it. My problem, when I get in operator callsign 329AT101 or 329CZE001 or 329LV101 so can not transmit because progrem writtes my “wrong callsign”, don no why, when i get 32something so it works… any bug for 329 division? thanks for answer, Jan.
Hi Jose Alberto…
I am runing ROS v7.1.3 with ICOM IC-7410, connected by USB interface, CI-V address on my radio is 80h. Com port is detected by ROS but i am not able to transmit.
My radio works fine with DM780 using USB interface, usually i work with PSK31.
Hola José, soy un radioaficionado nuevo, nuevo por la acreditación estoy interesado en trabajar con ROS, mi ordenador habitual es un MAC ¿Hay algún problema? me gustaría me orientases tengo un Yaesu FT 857 y la verdad es que no se ni por donde empezar.
Que tengas un Feliz año.
Hello Mr. Jose Alberto Nieto Ros,
Why did you put the callingfrequencie for Digital modes on the ROS list? 27.500 is for the other modes, you dont put the SSTV frequencie (27,700)also on the ROS list.
I think its a bad dessiccion and hope you will take it out of the list.
Thank you for including the frequency 27,500. Seriously they are very grateful for thinking of all of the Americas. I respect the position of European operators that use the frequencies allowed in their respective countries but in America, as a continent, we have many years using 27,500 and other frequencies, within 11 meters without legal problems as well as authorities I have always allowed to have no other assignment for them and allow their use by us, called mtristas eleven. Since ROS frequencies established as 27,245 and 27,695 for use frequently, I tried like crazy, use no success but I can say that I have made many enemies in trying it here, on this continent, these frequencies are for use by telephony and Americans use 500watts amps up and not let anything there, is the law of the strongest! So I appreciate the inclusion of this frequency (27,500) as an option for this robust software and I hope to keep in touch with the guys from Europe who “sag” usually by this frequency. Thank you very much again and I want to add that in America we have 27,500 in density can be seen, say, in the 28,120, in 10 meters ….. even close! The 27,500 is very little digital transmission and in fact would be a huge pleasure to see some saturation there. If we can saturate the width of that frequency would be wonderful, but I doubt it because in 27 MHz not so many users and achieve. Besides the stroke of ROS is a path very friendly and nothing interfering in bandwidth, from a distance.
Thank you and continued success. Thanks for making something more Uiniversal ROS!
I put the calling frequencies where Hams are using ROS. Explain then to 10AD707 why he TX ROS on 27500, not me
Is this a serious answer? is it so simple? nothing to do with other users, i made for years now contakt on 27.500 in digital modes,same as all the other countrys all over the world and now because some one ask to put 27.500 as frequencie for ROS it has to be done.
Put it on 27.510 or so but not on a international calling frequencie for digital modes.
I hope you see the point that i mean,
We here in Canada, USA, Mexico, Central America and South America use 27.500 for modes like BPKS31, Olivia 8/250, RTTY45, and now we use ROS ! Thanks very much, again, for inclusion and for adjust the software to the real use and not tue use to the software. This inclusion must be usefull for operator in America as continet and now we can participate in ROS MODE DAY´s to be really World Wide.
We have not problems for saturation on 27.500….we wish ! but nop ! Here we are a few guys using psk31, ROS and Olivia but what we want here is have more user,more operators !!! more digital users !!! If we want more contacts we need to adjust our realities to realities of other operator in other Countries around the entire world and then try to contact them. The secret for growing it is the inclusion not the exclusion. 27.500 it is like desert ready to be used in this part of world. Put you station in this area and you will see the same thing we see. Here in 27.500 we are only a few bounch of guys ……no more. i like to see 27.500 like 28.120 with a lot of pepole in contact ! a live frecuency !!! Thanks for this and Hasta la vista !!!
great idea, used it now for sometime on 27.500 mhz usb,because its the digital frequencie,there are not so many stations yet,but i made a connection with a french station. I will give it a try to see if anyone responds to me in ROS,keep up the good Work.
greetings the 19PG149 Ron
Still the same Ron: …on 27.500 there are not so many stations but lets try ! This is another opportunity to improve our contacts ! Lets do it ! Lets use ROS like others use Olivia 8/250 in 27.500. Thanks very much and Hasta la vista, Ron. 73
Last thing i heard that ROS whas not allowed to be used in the USA,or is it changed? and the other thing is that try to received ROS when there are many stations calling with ROS,only the strongest will be heard!
I am a ROS user to ,but on its own frequencie and not on the frequencie where i hunt for DX stations in psk.
What whas the problem to set the frequencie for ROS on 27.510?
Ron: I know you are trying to set some order in 27 MHz and it is a great idea. Please, you must take information about all especific regions in the entire World for a better settings of frequencies. What it the needs in South Pacific ? Asia ? Canada ? USA ? Latin America ? Africa ? Rusia ? Europe ? So we goning to use more frequencies to cover all needs in the world. Here, Ron, in this area of World, from Alaska to Argentina 27.695 it is a Contact frequency in LSB. This guys use a very powerful amplifiers and roger beeps, noises, toys, etc. And every time i try ROS in USB on 27.695, they come like killer bees and put a hell of noise all time. 27.245 it is CH25 for voice service in USA and they do AM, USB and LSB all time, day and night and you know they are very well armed too. So this frequencies may be good for you area but not for this Continet.
Here, 27.500 it almost desert. We have not problems of saturation. We want to see pepople doing digital modes there, from 2,000 Hz wide or less….no problem for us. Please consider put this frequency for “Las Americas” in you chart. Thanks very much for your attention.
Mario,tnx for the answer.
It is not that i dont like ROS, i use it myzelf and i am happy with this mode.
But what is the problem to take it to 27.510 ? everybody happy i think.
Why must men take the channel for DX psk and other digital modes and where several calls can make a qso on the same time,i dont think that can with ROS.
So put it on 27.510 and its nearby and we all can enjoy the hobby.
May be, may be……the only one problem i see is the “dissolution”. If we divide our selves, the possibilities of contact are reduced ! We are very few ! Always the same 40 guys on frequency: 4 from Canada, 4 from Germany, 6 from France, 4 from British islands, 4 from Spain 3 from Italy, 1 from Argentina, 1 from Uruguay, 1 from Brasil, 4 from Mexico, 2 from Australia, 1 from Indonesia and 4 from USA …..no more, We know each other very well !! And never you going to see 3 communications at same time on 27.500
Here in 27.500 we do Olivia 8/250, RTTY45, BPSK31, ROS, even SSTV !!!, Hell Scriber, etc…….. No problem because the frequency it is practically desert We must try to be together to increase the possibilities in frequencies with out regional interference and every body is going to be happy. Do not put us in different frequencies, please ! We need to be together and if and only if we saturate 27.500 then we can do a split : narrow modes here an the other modes there…… Please,lets try to be together in the beginning and when we look like 28.120 MHz then lets star to think in splits. BTU Ron.
Eric 9FDX057 talk to me today in 27.500 and he say we are making total use of 27.500 in ROS using all usable water fall. So we going to make a research for a good frecuency for Americans from Canada to Argentina. I going to ask every one of the DIGI-friends and look for a good frecuency for us. ROS is growing like beer foam and it is excelent ! So ….lets try, lets try !
I made contakt to Eric (9FDX075) a few times now,its verry nice to talk to him and others.
Thats point that he mentioned about ussing all of the frequencie is wat i was trying to say.(tnx Eric)
I think still that 27.510 is a good frequencie for Ros,nearby other digital frequencies.
Well……….now we are on 27.610 MHz in ROS.
Nice frequency, no problem for “Las Americas”.
Finally 27.500 it is free for narrow modes and 27.610 is ready for ROS mode.
We just test it and we make some excelents Dx today ! Thanks for oportunity to use ROS on 27 Mhz. See you on 27.610 !!! Hasta la vista !
Tried to download ROS 7.16 but got the following message: Download not available
The following download is not available:
The file of the above link no longer exists. This could be for several reasons:
The file was deleted by the user who uploaded it.The file contained illegal contents and was deleted from our servers by our Anti-Abuse team.The link is incorrect.The server is busy and can not process the request.
I have installed ROS 7.16, my RIG is Icom IC-7410. So far it works great, it’s just that I am not comfortable with the default settings SSB Data mode, I always switch to SSB to get good reception. I hope the default setting for SSB Data mode on ICOM IC-7410 deactivated.
En las versiones 7.1.6 y 7.1.7 del ROS, al arrancar el programa me aparece un cartel que me dice “Your registation could not be completed due to no internet connection”. Le doy OK y el programa se me cierra. Esto me ha forzado a seguir utilizando la version 7.1.5. Alguna idea? Obviamente que mi conexion a internet esta operativa… 73 de CX2ABP
hola José Alberto, llevo una semana peleándome con el programa y no termino de en tenderlo:
1/ no soy capaz de conexionar, programa con la radio, seguro que es una tontería pero estoy atascado.
2/ En digital se habla normalmente o es solo comunicación por el Chat?
3/ no me funciona en ningún modo CAT, COM etc.
En fin que estoy echo un lío. dime si hay un manual para torpes y donde encontrarlo
Perdona mi chapa, pero estoy muy ilusionado en entrar en lo digital, además si es de casa mejor.
Mi correo es el email@example.com mi nombre es Agustín ostolaza.
Hola José Alberto,
Más de lo mismo sigo sin conseguirlo y la verdad es que leyendo el programa, sigo sin poder, ya te comente que necesito algo para torpes. Cuando intento el CAT, después de scanear me emite el siguiente mensaje RIP NOT FOUND/ CiERRA HAM RADIO DE LUXE.
No habrá ningún video en youtube o Vimeo para verlo.
Bueno amigo, a ver si se te ocurre algo para que pueda acceder a la radio a través de tu programa.
buenas… tengo un problema, cuando arranco el ros me pone un cartel que dice “registration error. your registration could not be complete due to not internet connection” y luego se cierra, ya he instalado otra vez el XP y sigue con el mismo problema. la pc esta conectada a internet. actualice los parches del sistema operatico xp sp3 y sigue con el mismo problema. alguien pudo solucionarlo. Gracias.
Rama ,b.dia , te comento q’ lo mismo me sucede a mo cdo.no estoy conectado a internet ,supongo que el programa chequea que la persona que lo esta utilizando este registrada ,pero al estar disponible la web ese problema no me la hace.

si, es correcto, cuando no tengo internet lo hace, pero esta vez esta conectado a internet y sigue con el mismo problema, como que no registrara la coneccion a internet que tiene y luego se cierra. mientras tanto el opera funciona muy bien. solo con el ros me pasa. espero poder solucionarlo ya que lo uso mucho. gracias por la respuesta.
Rama ,b.dia ,mira estoy pensando si tal vez puede ser el cortafuegos del antivirus que se seteo negando al programo ROS la salida de internet ,para pbar,esto desconecta el cortafuegos o el antivirus unos minutos y Pba. otra cosa no se me ocurre y suerte .
Juan 73( LU4FT ) .
gracias. solucionado el tema. la nueva version del antivirus avast al detectar el puerto de coneccion lo cierra solo. antiguamente no lo hacia, pero parece que han cambiado el motor del antivirus. con desconectar el antivirus, habrir el ros y volver a poner el antivirus salio andando de maravilla. un abrazo a todos.
ok Rama ,me alegro mucho el haber podido ayudarte ,el AVAST dejo de ser el antivirus amigable como era antes ,a mi me causo un problema tambien en la internet ,me borro todos los puertos ,la conexion ,etc , despues de solucionarlo con mucho trabajo coloque el AVG internet security 2012 .
Un abrazo .Juan 73 ( LU4FT Rosario Argentina )
Great digimode, but will you ever distribute ROS as free software?
This would surely fasten up the development of this mode and quality, too. And btw it could be a platform independent piece of software.
I am using ROS since version 6.5.1. I always kept it up to date. After the release of the recent v 7.1.7 I’ve noticed that a different number of QSOs were decoded by using v7.1.3 compared to v7.1.7 – why? For that reason I want to install ROS 7.1.7 on a Laptop without internet connection, but it simply does not work. Any idea how to overcome this problem?
When I try to start ROS a textbox is popping up saying: “Your registration could not be completed due to no internet connection” and when I click on ‘OK’ the program terminates.
What can I do to make the program work, pse??
This error started after ROS has worked perfectly since this version was ready for download. I have tried to download ROS again, removed the old directory and installed the new downloaded file in a new directory. That didn’t help.
The same happened with the former version of ROS. It then helped by installing the new version – it worked since it was released, but I now have the problem again.
I belive that if a new version is released, I can use ROS for some time again until the same problem occur once more.
But why am I restricted to a relative short time working with ROS for every new version?
At the moment it is impossible for me to work ROS.

I have done nothing at all and now it is working.
For me it is a strange, unsolved case. But ok – as long it works, I’m happy.
If I disconnect the internet ROS starts up working, but naturally without the information bars. So I can not make it fail the same way as it did the last two days, even without the internet connection.
Thanks for your time and your help.
After 1month my inactivity ROS mode today open me sw ROS 7.1.7
Comming message “your registration could not be completed due to not internet connection” but spots comming OK and this service requires internet connection. Where is a mistake????

I upgraded my licence type and have a new callsign now.
My old callsign DO6CH in the donate list is expired.
Please change it to my new callsign DL6CH or delete it as you like.

Is it somehow possible to implement ROS in the microcontroller in order to build a small QRP beacon (transmission only). Do ROSmodem protocol is published and available to the public, such as, for example, WSRP?
Please see the projects of stratospheric balloons where miniature transmitter sends the position of the balloon in the UHF band. http://ukhas.org.uk I’am looking for the ability to send short message with extremely low power (a few mW) which may indicate the need for error correcting codes. Due to the carrier frequency drift I’am wondering if ROS receiver cant catch that. The transmitter and receiver clock are not synchronized. The transmiter is not connected to the Internet any how. I think we can make a trial test other than RTTY or DominoEX transmit methods. ROS is know for extremely low power budget. It is also resistant, I believe, to change frequency, group delay etc. For now, this is purely theoretical considerations.
NB: on the previous versions the software worked without the PC is connected to internet. Since the version 7.17 I have the message “your registration could not be completed to not internet connection ” then the software closes…
Please, I shall like I can again use this mode without being on WEB
In advance thank you. 73!
