Thanks for your reply. To clarify, I have the Pi with a cat control cable to the 857D via the tuner (so Pi to tuner to radio). I also have Pi to SignaLink to radio.
When I press “tune” in FLRIG it keys the radio, but not SignaLink.
When I use FLDIGI, and press “tune” (or any other command), the SignaLink PTT illuminates, and the radio transmits.
If you're just using a FT857 and a Signalink without a CAT
connection, then Flrig should do nothing. PTT control is completely
handled by the Signalink device. Flrig should not even be used as
it won't have any function without CAT or some other control.
Would it be an issue with the SignaLink even if
FLRIG, FLDIGI, ARDOP can all get the radio to transmit, or do
you think it’s something in my Direwolf configuration? I
swapped the jumper module, the SignaLink, and the cables with
known-good and I still have the symptoms.
I tried the radio in packet, FM, and digital - the
same problem exists on each mode.
Any thoughts on how to get the SignaLink to not do
CAT? (I thought CAT was being done through FLRIG)
I am able to get FLRig to PTT
even in packet mode.
Direwolf starts up, RIGCTL turns green, KISSATCH turns
green, and Pat opens up.
When I try to initiate an AX.25 communication,
SignaLink PTT will turn red, but does not key the
That's a new one. If the Signalink's PTT LED lights up,
your radio should key up too. This is an issue with
your Signalink, it's jumper configuration, or your
cabling. It's very strange it works for other
You mentioned a FT857. What mode is the radio in? Try
PKT or DIG mode and try again.
And Pat opens up and gives the
radio frequency for my-rig, and the AX.25 can key
SignaLink... there's just something going on with PTT
maybe? (Do I have that right? SignaLink provides the
audio/tones but something else controls the PTT?)
Ok.. this doesn't make sense. The Signalink only does
audio and fakes out PTT. If you're getting automatic
frequency updates from the radio back to Pat, this means
you have another connection to your radio doing CAT
control. This is ok but you need to be cleat that the
Signalink should do the PTT. Configure all your
programs NOT to use CAT for PTT control.
