Re: K3S and WSJT-X on 160M

Another solution that keeps CAT completely working is to use OmniRig in WSJT-X and connect that to my N4PY Pegasus Plus. That solves everything. And you can still use CAT PTT.

Using USB communication between the radio and computer.


Although running this sort of split will work on some rigs using CAT
control, by selecting "Settings->Radio->Split Operating->None", it is
not officially supported.

If it doesn't work for your rig then you can disable CAT control and set
the rig's VFOs and SPLIT manually by selecting
"Settings->Radio->Rig->None". This clearly cannot be used with CAT PTT
commands but if your rig supports PTT via RTS use that, or VOX (or DATA
VOX) on the rig.

You can make a separate configuration in WSJT-X to support this
including the Rx frequency for logging.


Thanks Bill for the info and solution.
