I just don’t use SDRC if I am going to do WSJT. Since Logger32 closes the CAT port to WSJT the information would not be sent over to SDRC or SDRUno.

Hi Chuck..

Sorry for not responding sooner I had to set things back up so I could get the settings for you as I haven’t turned on my radio in about a month..

I’m using a 7300 and one virtual serial port.

 

1.       Open VSPE and create one virtual port in VSPE its called a connector. This is set to COM13.

2.       Load Logger32. In Logger32 I have the 7300 connected and Logger32 has full radio control over the radio

3.       Click on setup and then go to the radio setup window and select Slave Configuration. This is how my slave window is setup.

 

Note that I have COM13 the VSPE port set as the com port.

 

4.       Now open SDR Console and open up the options. In the options window you will want to click on Controllers and then CAT then port selection. Your Virtual port should be shown in the listing of ports available select it by placing a checkmark in the box. (If you want to make sure things are working correctly you can open the I/O Monitor and you should see the radio commands going by if they are connected.

 

After closing the options window the frequency in SDRC’s frequency display should show that of your radio in Logger32. This is a two-way connection. If you change the frequency in Logger32 the frequency should update in SDRC. If you change the frequency or mode in SDRC then Logger32 should update also.

Here is an image of my using SDRC within Logger32. I have an SDR-Play RSP1 connected to my computer that SDRC is getting its information from..

One thing that I did not mention is this same setup can also be used with SRDUno. You just need to enable the CAT port settings in the program and tell it what port to listen for the commands.

Re: L32 and SDR Console

This is all way above my pay grade - I don't know what omnirig or sdrconsole capabilities are or exactly what they're used for, but I have some knowledge of how Logger32 works. Looks/sounds to me that you're configured ass backward. Shouldn't the main station transceiver be connected to the Logger32 CAT port (that way all logger32 functions will work as expected). Your SDR is then connected to the Logger32 slave port (the SDR will now follow the main radio freq/mode). How you connect sdrconsole to the SDR is up to you. Am I oversimplifying the problem? SeventyThree(s).

I no longer have these radio and cheap SDR RX so I can not check.

I have used K3/LP-PAN 2/NAP3/VSPE for many years. This works fine. NAP3 is one of panadapter software.

K3 is connected to COM 3 port. COM15 is created by VSPE as splitter port.

COM15 should be selected in Logger32 and NAP3. No OmniRig.

K3 IF out is connected to LP-PAN 2 input. LP-PAN 2 i/Q out is connected to Sound in/out in PC. ( I use

stereo USB audio adapter)

I do not know if LP-PAN 2 and NAP3 support FT1000MP or not. This is radio list in NAP3.
