Two hopefully easy questions about Fldigi.

1. Every time I close the Fldigi program, the macros I edit.  ie. the SK and the Brag I change up a bit.  I don't really want to tell everyone God Bless at the end of every QSO and I don't want to give out all the info on the Brag key.  and add my QSL info to that one.  How can I keep the edits when I shut the program down.

2. I am using my Yaesu FT-2000D and a Signalink USB through the 5 pin din in the back for communication.  How do I get the frequency to display on the Fldigi program screen?

Thanks again for all your help and support.  As I have said before, I am woefully inept with computers.

1). I've run into the same problem.  There is a setting in the config to save macros on exit, but I've still lost macros. Now, every time I make a change, I manually save the macro file. I will admit that I have tested this with the last couple of releases. Now the manual saving process is almost second nature.

2).  I have an FT-950, not an FT-2000. However, I don't believe the freq info is available through the data din plug. You need to use the DB9 CAT plug for that info as it falls more under radio control.

I got the Macros to save.  Thanks for your help;

The DB9 cable you are talking about.... Is that the "band data" cable that the Quadra would use?

1). Outstanding. Maybe I need to revisit the auto save option.....

2). The DB9 port is labeled CAT on the back of my 950 and is a serial connection for RIG control. I have an LDG tuner that uses it to put the radio into AM and drop the power during the tune cycle. The LDG has a pass-through for the CAT port that allows my Mac Mini to connect inline for MacLoggerDX which does my rig control. The band data cable (CT-118) you refer to, from what I'm able to research connects to the tuner DIN on the back of the radio and splits into a DB15 for band data and an RCA for ALC on the amp.
