Trying to get FlRig working with TS890

Cathryn Mataga
 

I'm trying to get FlRig working with my TS890.   This is version 1.3.49.  This is connected to the USB port on the radio, which emulates a serial port. This same setting works with wsjt.  I tried turning on logging and got this as a result. I can never connect with the program.  Let me know if you need more information.


Thank you!

Cathryn,

  • Make sure that no other application is attached to the TS890 USB serial port.  This may require a computer reboot.
  • Delete the files that are found in \Users\<username>\flrig.files\.  Deleting the files insures that you will be starting the configuration anew.
  • Turn on the transceiver and configure the serial port(s) to 115200 baud
  • Start flrig  without fldigi or any other flxxx application
  • Configure flrig for the TS890S


    • Select the COM port from the list box.
    • Make sure you have selected the Virtual Standard COM and not the Virtual Enhanced COM port (used for CW/FSK keying)
    • Check that all of the controls are set as above and then press the Init button

The "Connected" indicator should illuminate if the connection is established with the transceiver.

If the connection occurs then you may proceed to test the various flrig main dialog controls for bi-directional control of the transceiver.

When you are satisfied that control is working correctly you may then start fldigi and configure it to use flrig as it's transceiver control agent.

Oh, thanks. That actually did work. Not sure what what happened, but it seemed to me rebooting and deleting those flrig.files must have healed it.
