[linrad] For W3SZ

Hi Roger,

I have tried to send mails to you several times in the past (comments
to things on MOON-NET) but I have got the following message from

This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:
Your message was not delivered because the return address was refused.
The return address was 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxx'  (my address)

This time my message was an answer to your question so I send it
via the Linrad mailing list.

Maybe. Depends on many things.

If you see the message NO RESPONSE FROM HARDWARE it is probably
the bug, but it could also be incorrect connections.
The next version has a function for testing the serial communication to
the hardware so it will be easy to troubleshoot.

The bug is that i forgot to update a variable against which time
is compared before the clock is toggled. This means that the clock
may become too fast on a fast computer..........

I am waiting to see if there will be some response to the swap issue.
It is necessary to issue the command:

swapoff -a

Then verify that Linrad runs with the parameters you have selected.
If it does, just issue

swapon -a

to turn swap on again.

This will be the recommendation unless someone has a better suggestion.
