Re: Lost CAT Connection in FT8

Dave Colliau

Jim apparently I had everything set up in the UDP window but I didnt know about the cat stuff. I will get the new help file today ! By the way I used WSJT-X hound mode and worked VP6D from 12 down to 160 on FT-8 . I never heard them on 10 meters and when I worked them on 160 they were not using the dxpedition mode ? It was fun .

Thanks and 73

You can setup the radio for JT configuration when you open JT and have it revert to normal when you close JT. It’s all covered in section 5 of the UDP  bandmap in the latest Logger32 help file posted this week..


It’s a work in progress. More capability is forthcoming in the next autoupdate.

Thats great information Jim. I didnt realize this was happening :).

I had a logging Issue this morning and got that figured out and now I will try running from the UDP window and see what the cat port does. Bob keep up the great work.

Having a separate Logger32ini for JTDX/WSJT is no longer necessary. Bob has integrated the 2 programs.

You can open/close the JT programs from the UDP Bandmap.

By setting Logger32 to receive frequency from JT, Logger32 will close the radio cat  port, shifting CAT to the JT program.


I would highly recommend you download the latest Logger32 Help file and go through the latest setup recommendations. Aki has done a tremendous job of documenting the JT setup.

Hi All


I’m puzzled with this.


I have two configurations of Logger (2nd INI file), one for SSB,CW and RTTY etc, and another that runs with WSJT for FT8.

When I tried to run FT8 today the CAT wont connect to either HF or VHF and WSJT throws up the Reconfigure radio window!


Nothing has changed here, if I try to run my standard Logger 32 session it sees the rigs fine and so does N1MM so I know the settings are good and they are identical in the L32/WSJT configuration.

As soon as I open the WSJT window the re-config radio window opens!!


Has something changed in the linking of the two programs? Has anyone else seen this problem?
