locked Re: FT857 Rig control problem #hamlib



When started with parameter "--rig-name=FT857"  WSJT-X will store coniguration into file named
'WSJTX - FT857.ini'. This file is stored in directory '~/.config'. You should place file 'wsjtx_log_config.ini' into  '~/.config' too.

The 'WSJT-X_RigControl.log' file will then be created in directory '~/.local/share/WSJT-X - FT857'.

ran test as directed, no log generated.

Perhaps you need to know that the ft857 runs wsjtx --rigname=FT857.

~/.wsjtx$ ls

The you didn't put the file in the right place.
Should be the same location as the WSJT-X.ini file wherever your system
put that.

Running WSJTX-2.5.4 on Ubuntu 18.04. Rig FT-857.

Upgraded to this version a couple weeks ago, and all was fine. PC runs

Today when I loaded wsjtx and transmitted, I received this Error:
Hamlib error: Command rejected by the rig
0000 f0 .
ft817_read_ack: ack received (240)
rig.c(1571):rig_set_freq return(-9) Command rejected by the rig

Seems odd that the error references an ft817, but rig is set to FT857. I
also set rig to NONE, then back to FT857, still problem.

After the error, I then hit retry and back to normal, until next xmit,
problem repaets.

I reduced power to rig from 60 watts , to 5 watts, same problem.

Connected dummy load , same problem at 5 watts

Also problem occurs AFTER transmit ends. Not while transmitting.

SO I re-installed wjtx, but same problem.

PC reboot does not fix problem either.

I tried FLrig, and no problems with control.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks Dan KC2STA
