Locked Re: Trouble with Yaesu FT-747GX CAT #windows11 #Cat_RigControl #hamlib

Well, it seems like he found the place in the code where this is happenning
but the fix is not still right. It seems to be all about getting qrg from
the poll and doing the right thing with it: not scaling it up (original
bug) and not scaling it down (Michael's fix bug)

Unfortunately that leads into a weirder behavior; it initially set my
rig to the right frequency , but then it started to drift from 707,46
to 74,6000 to 746000 and so on, then it randomly started enabling PTT.

I'd send debug info but I don't know how to obtain that from Windows' WSXJT.

Please try this DLL....I just made a change that should help this....

And if it still is wrong (which it likely will be) please provide debug

New hamlib for installation directions

#1 Shut down WSJTX

Linux/Unix/Mac users need to compile the latest tar file from
Note: If compiling on Unix-like systems please uninstall any Hamlib
package you have before installing the new build

#2 If you don't save directly you need to open a file browser and move
the file that way.

If you're not familiar with that here's a video on the file browser -

I'm trying to setup CAT to control my rig; my settings are:

8 data bits
2 stop bits
no handshake
other pins on default

The Test CAT button works, it sets to green, and PTT also correctly
starts transmitting.

The issues:

When selecting a band from the dropdown, the rig is correctly set to the
appropriate frequency. A couple of seconds later, when the system polls the
current frequency, it's 100 times higher and it ends in 48. E.g.: 40m sets
to 7,074.000 Two seconds later, it becomes 707,400.048.

A few seconds later, I get a timeout error and the rig disconnects.

Any help is appreciated.
