FLDIGI won't transmit with Yaesu FTDX 3000
I have successfully been using my new Yaesu FTDX 3000 in CW, RTTY and SSB. It works perfectly with N1MM+ using CW and RTTY (via MMTTY and EXTFSK). Thanks to everyone who has advised me to get me here so far. For the record, I'm using just a USB cable between the 3000 and my computer. My USB cable gives me COM7 for CAT and COM8 for PTT as well as the audio CODEC.
Now I am trying to set up FLDIGI (and FLRIG) both as stand alone programs and eventually to run FLDIGI within N1MM. I want to do PSK31 for rag chew and contesting.
Here's the issue... I can decode PSK and other mode signals perfectly. I can even get, after much trial and error, the CAT working both in FLRIG and FLDIGI to show frequency, mode and operate the ATT, filtration, etc. But I can't get the 3000 to key up or transmit!
It is worth noting two things... First and foremost, it turns out that the DATA mode is not used for PSK, even though that's where the nifty PSK decoder is! I talked with Tim a t Yaesu and he told me to use USB. Seems that the DATA mode is for Packet and AMTOR, etc. Who knew?
The other thing is, I have made several successful QSOs in PSK using Digipan. But why is it working and FLDIGI doesn't? Only one thing to set... Serial port is COM8 (no CAT in DIgipan) and DTR as PTT.
Anyone using FLDIGI with the 3000? I've posted this same message to the Yaesu 3000 Group but I assume it's more about the software then the radio.
Thanks and 73!
