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

I just realized this, but, if it were a hamlib issue I could copy the
library from 2.3.1 and paste onto the 2.5.4 installation; however it
still breaks and shows this error. So, more than likely, the issue is
with WSJT

Hi, Michael

I just tried this version but it still behaves incorrectly; the only
apparent difference is that now it returns 040 for the last few bits
of the frequency instead of 048.

The locale has nothing to do with it.
Try the latest 64-bit DLL here

I checked the history and there were some changes to the 747GX that broke this.

Yeah, I think that could be the reason. In that case, just switch to some
english locale like US and see how it goes...

Since we both seem to be Spanish speakers, my brother offers a
thought... maybe there's a locale issue and it's parsing the wrong
decimal separator?

I confirm the error exactly as described. when it must read 7.000 MHz it
reads 7,000 MHz and that makes it impossible to use it. Keeps happening
since more than a year in all wsjtx versions until the last one I tried
some months ago, and it looks like it keeps happening. Quick "fix": use
old versión from early 2019.

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
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

The issues:

When selecting a band from the dropdown, the rig is correctly set to
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
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.
