Re: Set Up to use JS8Call with Elad Fdm Duo

Let's see if we can fix this one bit at a time.
First step, let's find out if CAT is working at all.
Using the same COM port that works as a TS-480 in HRD, and with no other programs running that might be locking the COM port, confirm that the WSJT-X or JS8Call settings are the same as worked in HRD. Should be 38400, 8 N 1 as usual.
Now I'm going to assume that you are using the latest JS8Call or the latest WSJT-X (so you have the current Hamlib setup, which is built-in to those).
Check that you have the radio type set in the program settings to Elad FDM-DUO in the drop-down box (don't use TS480, the Hamlibn for that is buggy, the DUO library functions are new and work perfectly)
Check that you are set to PTT using RTS on the same COM port
which worked OK with HRD for CAT. The rest of the settings
shouldn't matter at this point, but set them anyway to Fake It
split and USB mode so you don't have to go back and fiddle with
the settings later.
Assuming that is OK, and the settings are all correct, click the "Test CAT" button.
If that doesn't go green within a second or so, we need to dig
further into whether something is stopping the COM port from
working, so stop at this point and report your findings.
If it does go green, then click the Test PTT and see if the rig goes to TX. If it doesn't, then check the DUO menu 54 and the PTT is set to IN+RTS, then retry.
If that still doesn't work, you have a different issue around the RTS line, so change the PTT setting to CAT and try again.
So, now you either have CAT and PTT working, or just CAT or neither.
Can you test and report on whether those settings work in JS8Call and/or WSJT-X?
Next step is to get receive and transmit audio working, but let's go one step at once.
