NAME

       rigmem - backup and restore memory of radio transceivers and receivers

SYNOPSIS

       rigmem [-ahvVx] [-m id] [-r device] [-s baud] [-c id] [-C parm=val] [-p sep] command
              [file]

DESCRIPTION

       Backup and restore memory of radio transceivers and receivers.   rigmem  accepts  commands
       from the command line only.

       Keep  in  mind  that Hamlib is BETA level software.  While a lot of backend libraries lack
       complete radio support, the basic functions are usually well supported.

       Please report bugs and provide feedback at the e-mail address given in  the  BUGS  section
       below.  Patches and code enhancements sent to the same address are welcome.

OPTIONS

       This  program  follows  the  usual  GNU  command  line syntax.  Short options that take an
       argument may have the value follow immediately or be separated by a space.   Long  options
       starting with two dashes (‘-’) require an ‘=’ between the option and any argument.

       Here is a summary of the supported options:

       -m, --model=id
              Select radio model number.

              See model list (use “rigctl -l”).

       -r, --rig-file=device
              Use device as the file name of the port connected to the radio.

              Often  a  serial port, but could be a USB to serial adapter.  Typically /dev/ttyS0,
              /dev/ttyS1, /dev/ttyUSB0, etc. on Linux, COM1, COM2, etc. on MS Windows.   The  BSD
              flavors and Mac OS/X have their own designations.  See your system's documentation.

       -s, --serial-speed=baud
              Set radio serial speed to baud rate.

              Uses maximum serial speed from radio backend capabilities as the default.

       -c, --civaddr=id
              Use id as the CI-V address to communicate with the radio.

              Only useful for Icom and some Ten-Tec radios.

              Note:  The  id  is  in decimal notation, unless prefixed by 0x, in which case it is
              hexadecimal.

       -C, --set-conf=parm=val[,parm=val]
              Set radio configuration parameter(s),  e.g.  stop_bits=2.

              Use the -L option of rigctl for a list of  configuration  parameters  for  a  given
              model number.

       -p, --set-separator=sep
              Set character as column separator instead of the CSV comma.

              Some  common  alternatives  are  the  vertical bar (pipe), ‘|’, semicolon, ‘;’, and
              colon, ‘:’.

       -a, --all
              Bypass mem_caps, apply to all fields of channel_t.

       -x, --xml
              Use XML format instead of CSV, if libxml2 is available.

       -v, --verbose
              Set verbose mode, cumulative (see DIAGNOSTICS below).

       -h, --help
              Show a summary of these options and exit.

       -V, --version
              Show version of rigmem and exit.

       Note: Some options may not be implemented by a given backend and  will  return  an  error.
       This is most likely to occur with the --set-conf option.

COMMANDS

       Backup and restore are supported for basic CSV file and XML format where available.

       Please  note  that the backend for the radio to be controlled, or the radio itself may not
       support some commands. In that case, the operation will fail with a Hamlib error message.

       Here is a summary of the supported commands:

       save file
              Save all the content of memory in a CSV (or XML) file given as an argument  to  the
              command.

       load file
              Load  the content into all the memory from a CSV (or XML) file given as an argument
              to the command.

       save_parm file
              Save all the parameters of the radio in a CSV (or XML) file given as an argument to
              the command.

       load_parm file
              Load  the  parameters of the radio from a CSV (or XML) file given as an argument to
              the command.

       clear  This is a very DANGEROUS command, as it will completely clear  out  everything  you
              have  programmed  in the memory of your radio.  ALL DATA WILL BE LOST.  Use at your
              own risk!

DIAGNOSTICS

       The -v, --verbose option allows different levels of diagnostics to be output to stderr and
       correspond  to  -v  for  BUG, -vv for ERR, -vvv for WARN, -vvvv for VERBOSE, or -vvvvv for
       TRACE.

       A given verbose level is useful for providing needed debugging information  to  the  email
       address  below.   For  example,  TRACE output shows all of the values sent to and received
       from the radio which is very useful for radio  backend  library  development  and  may  be
       requested by the developers.

EXIT STATUS

       rigmem exits with:

       0      if all operations completed normally;

       1      if there was an invalid command line option or argument;

       2      if an error was returned by Hamlib.

       3      the Hamlib backend has no memory support implemented and/or the radio has no memory
              access available.
