Mark,

 

How do you have your TS-450 wired up for CAT? Using the Kenwood IF-232? Have you tried it with a different radio control program other than WSJT-X?

 

Good Luck, Eric (W1EL)

Hi Bill,   Its the CAT control that doesnt work, Im geeting cannot retrieve frequency from radio, 

 

current rig control on flrig setting doesnt move the frequency on the TS450 device/radio. 

 

What I did just to isolate errors was I manually tuned the radio on 15meters then I initialize the programs. 

 

so in summary

- AF in is ok

- AF out is ok

- PTT via RTS is ok

- Wsjtx is ok via Flrig (can do qso) 

 

- Flrig doesnt show errors on settings but doesnt reflect changes in frequency. 

wasnt able to tinker with it this weekend, will try to gather more data. 

 

thanks again, appreciate the help and insights. 

 

Regards, 

 

Mark

Yes sir, I actually was in touch with the tech from xggcomms which is great, its just that the errors are on the software and my rig is old TS-450s and is tagged as obsolete with Kenwood.  Have to survive this self inflicted pain i'm getting hahaha.

But was able to make it work in 2 days just not perfect yet.

For some reason the RX station or any station I try does not answer which is strange.

Hello everyone,

I have recently upgraded from 2.2 to 2.5 and now have troubles.

All seems to look OK but I cannot connect with anyone.

I am decoding just fine, green bar about 65.

TX seems OK on my 590-SG using USB interface, ALC is 1 bar on TX.

time.is says I am exact.

auto seq is checked.

When I double click on a cq the TX comes on and I am calling that
station and their call is now in the TX windows.

When someone answers my cq their call does not show up in the TX1 window
and the TX6 window is still checked.

again auto seq is checked.


Thoughts please,

Dave KC3AM

It depends on how susceptible the USB cable is to RFI.

One more thing...just to be clear, I am experiencing this issue on my portable CHAMELEON MPAS 2.0 which only has a radial coming from the antenna and my universally grounded (copper rod) antenna in my backyard.  However, the problem is only happening on the upper bands (>18Mhz).  The lower bands are not seeing this issue with WSJT-x.

Does the problem go away if you reduce the output power to near zero and/or transmit into a dummy load? If so, it's almost certainly RFI.

locked Help needed for MAP65 network protocol #map65

yt7pwr@...
 

Hi to all.
I developing SDR software for LimeSDR-USB (2ch RX 0.1-3.8GHz) and I'm stuck with MAP65 network protocol. So far I managed to form UDP
packets and send them to MAP65, they are displayed but inversed (in the center of spectrum is +/-48KHz and at the both edges is 0Hz). MAP65 in lower
left corner is displaying message Receiving F2 or Receiving F1 (green all the time without any red NILL messages).
When I try to send one RF channel via soundcard (using VAC) it is working fine, decoding on 2m and 70cm Jt65 and Q65 modes but only one polarization.
Where can I find documentation for struct Linrad (from file soundin.cpp, line 339)? Using Wireshark I'm monitoring UDP packets and they look like packets
from Linrad but not 100% sure about first 24 bytes (packet header). Change passband_direction in header has no effect. Maybe I need to change settings
inside MAP65 program?

Goran, yt7pwr

Hi,

Thank you all for the replies and I must make an apology Bill I was incorrect in my statement that it slowed down the programme as I have no evidence of this.
As for the uploading of the adif file due to its size it does slow down the way way in which I carry out this task, which is by using the online logging uploader. As suggested here by some others I will just create a dummy adif file and copy and paste the new files for upload into that.

Thanks again for all replies.
