Re: CAT settings help needed

Hi Paula,


Is it possible that RF is getting into the USB ports…. I have to use a fair amount of ferrite here in the shack (and I suspect that it may be as challenging while portable).


Used a kit from Palomar Engineers – every single piece in the kit was used!  FT-8 / timing on JTDX and WSJT-X were very susceptible to drop-outs from RF messing with the USB and Audio ports.

I was never successful getting CAT to work while portable. I discivered, when I returned home, that it would work correctly only with the laptop power cable plugged in. I checked all the buried power saving settings regarding USB power saving, and they are all appropriately disabled, including the USB root hub settings. 

So it is the laptop itself that is the problem. Don’t know where to go from here . . .
