Re: Intermitent Rig Control Errors to my ICOM 7610
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
I have been battling this error with my IC-7610 while using
WSJT-X and DXLab Suite for some time. I would get a rig control
error which would pop up after 5 - 20 minutes of operation. I'd
clear it. Then it would happen again after 5 - 20 minutes. I'm
not sure, but I think it happened more frequently under quite
crowded band conditions. I may even have slowed the setting down
thinking it was a computer processing problem.
Somehow, I missed any previous mention of the resolution of this problem. I had been through the installation instructions again and ....
I saw your answer. A light switch went on. I made the change
and operated some FT-8 with only 1 error occurring over 3 days.
I've already shared this with a similarly equipped friend.
Most gratefully with 73,
