L32 and SDR Console

Jim Cox
 

Bob, I have been struggling with similar circumstances with trying to get SDRUno (panadapter program) to work with Logger32 and JTDX and not having any luck with various combos..
Tried this morning with the Slave port and it seems to work fine.  I did have to create a virtual serial cable 12 to 13 and used 12 for the slave port and 13 for the sdruno program using Kenwood emulation.  Working fine now but let me use it today and see if works ok with various combinations, etc.  I tried to just assign a virtual port to the Slave port and use that same port for the panadapter program but no luck that way.  73s Jim K4JAF

Rick, it's already working, guess I already coded for it. When Logger32 relinquishes radio control to WSJT/JTDX, Logger32 takes the WSJT/JTDX frequency from the UDP StatusOut message constructs a set frequency/mode message in the appropriate slave radio format and sends it. So, your ultra high def eye candy machine should still follow the radio as you snag those rare and exotic 77 byte (or whatever they are) QSOs. Give it a whirl. The attached picture is what was sent to the slave when I changed JTDX from FT8 to FT4 (no Logger32 CAT control connected). SeventyThree(s).

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..

How do I get L32 and SDR Console to talk to my FT-1000mp Mk V Field?
Logger32 does not work with Omnirig, but SDR Console seems to require it. SDR Console says use TS-2000 protocol, but logger32 does not have a selection for the TS-2000. Tried using VSPE, but no joy.

Jim, funny how the simple things are often the most difficult to grasp :)  Please test the scenario I described to Rick ... Run WSJT/JTDX and no CAT between Logger32 and the main radio. On the UDP BandMap click CONFIG and check the option to ALLOW WSJT/JTDX TO SET LOGGER32 FREQUENCY/MODE. Now, change Band and/or Mode of WSJT/DX. Does the slave radio follow? If not, look at the Slave Radio Debug Window. Do you see commands from Logger32 to change frequency/mode?

I avoid all the nonsense and use a radio without CAT. Works fine, lasts a long time. And, I have yet to hear of a single case where the QSO could not have been completed without an SDR and an ultra high def 4K display. SeventyThree(s).

Jim..

You don’t need to create a pair. You only need to create a single virtual com port. Logger32 will write Kenwood cat info to that port as if a real radio is connected. In SDRUno just enter the single virtual port number. As I show in my example I use com 13. I can switch back and forth between SDRC and SDRUno and both work correctly..

I tried what you described  and used the virtual com port with Kenwood protocol for the slave port, all appeared to work fine, slave port polling, etc.  But when I went into SDRuno and tried to choose the same com port as used in the slave port, it said that port was already in use..  I am using Eltima virtual ports, could that be my problem, but don’t think so as the virtual cable with 2 ports would fine..

Hi Jim..

I’m not sure why its not working for you just to make sure I went and just loaded SRDUno and set the CAT to COM13 and it took of reading the Logger32 radio frequency. I clicked in the Uno waterfall and Logger32 moved to that frequency. You can download VSPE and give it a try and see if it makes a difference.
