rig control of ts570
cliff wiginton <wb5bsg@...>
I run fldigi on my laptop using PuppyLinux, and it does a good job...I
am trying to get the Windoze version to work on my laptop, and have it
all working except the rig control....
I downloaded the xml file for the 570 and after much head banging...did
an edit job using openoffice 2.0, and saved it back to the fldigi folder
under the name "rig.xml"......It doesn't work yet.....
Can anyone walk me through this thing, I am not the sharpest html man
out here, and I like the program......would like to get it going if I
can....Thanks in advance....
Hi Clifftoggle quoted message Show quoted text
Just to recap on what we discussed.
Check the baud rate and number of stop bits in the TS570's menu, and
ensure it coincides with the rig.xml file.
Also check to see if the rig xml file has RTS CTS handshaking set, and
see if it is also a menu selectable item in the TS570's menu setup.
Personally I would not have handshaking set, and would disable it in
both the rig.xml, and also in the TS570. Pins 7 and 8 in the TS570
data plug represent RTS, and CTS respectively, and they can be linked
together if there is no menu option, effectively giving the radio a
permanent handshake scenario.
Hope this helps, as it can be a little off putting when playing with
the PTT and CAT options. I know I wondered about the stability of it
myself, but in the end it worked, and has done ever since :-).
As an aside but maybe of interest is that I found the radio must be
switched on and connected of course when booting up fldigi. In my case
with the IC706MKIIG I had forgotten to switch the radio on, and fldigi
couldn't find the cat before it's timeout. When I switched on the 706
fldigi was already running but without cat. So I closed it down, and
reopened it. Still no cat !. I rebooted xp and when it came up the cat
was fine. It serves to show some of the peculiarities which are not
present in other true Windows software. This may not happen with
anyone else, as we usually have our radios on, before we run any
software, but then you never know :-). Maybe modifying the rig xml
file to remove the cat timeout, so it keeps trying, may be a solution
but I haven't tried it...maybe I will hi.
Do keep us posted on what you find though, as I am sure we will all be
interested in compiling as much info on win fldigi as we can.
