Re: Elad duo and wsjtx

Hi Antony, if you use the new Hamlib drivers for the DUO, you no longer need to use RTS for PTT, CAT PTT *does* work fine now.

I just stick to the old way because I'm like that.  The old way was necessary because of a programming race condition bug in the TS480 Hamlib.  That bug is *STILL THERE* in the TS480 so RTS PTT is mandatory if you won't move to the new DUO driver in wsjt-x etc

just seen your email..

You have to set up BOTH CAT for frequency control and RTS for PTT. I operate FT8 most of the time due to poor antenna here (60cm indoor loop!)
