FT991 Patch

A small patch.  Allows the FT-991 to work with Fake Split in WSJT-X.
FT-991 Rig Split does not work due to audio routing (at least not with the USB port)

The 991 needs a delay after transmit is turned off and 50ms works.

[Fwd: Re: FT-991 backend not working]

The SourceForge Git server is back up, however, I could not, as of a few
minutes ago, update the daily snapshots Web page.  Hopefully that will
come back online soon.

I've applied and pushed the patch but only to GitHub as it appears SF is
having a major outage and is still down this morning.  You can clone
the master branch from:

https://github.com/N0NB/hamlib

The FT-991 patch is in commit dffa13017584e78a.

73, Nate

P.S. I'm mailing direct because the list via SF is also down.

FT-991 backend not working

Hallo,

The backend for YAESU FT-991 does not work correctly on my system.
openSUSE 13.2, 64 bit with the latest version of hamlib 3.0 from
https://github.com/N0NB/hamlib/commits/master.

rigctl from the command line:
================
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~> rigctl -m 135 -r /dev/ttyS7
rig_open: error = Feature not available
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~>
================
When I open the FT-991 as FT-950 I get some answers
================
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~> rigctl -m 128 -r /dev/ttyS7

Rig command: m
Mode: USB
Passband: 2450

Rig command: q
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~> rigctl -m 135 -r /dev/ttyS7
rig_open: error = Feature not available
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~> rigctl -m 128 -r /dev/ttyS7

Rig command: m
Mode: USB
Passband: 2450

Rig command: f
get_freq: error = Invalid parameter

Rig command: q
dl8fcl <at> dl8fcl:~>
================
The result is the same if I use the RS232 or the USB interface of the 
FT-991.
Controlling the rig with the RigCat function of FLDIGI is possible.

HAMLIB accuracy

Hi All,

Some of the communication protocol car send command with a precision of
one tenth of a degree (like the EASYCOMM). Maybe other communication
protocol can be more precise.

But, does the HAMLIB package handle such precision (receive an order to
move to 78.2 degrees for example) and send it to the rotator interface ?

My idea is to use the HAMLIB package on some very large parabolas where
the beam width becomes smaller than a degree.

Thank you for your advice.

Very 73

easycomm protocol

So rather than trying to add a Galil controller to the Hamlib backend, I've been tinkering with writing my code to communicate with hamlib via a psuedo terminal. I was thinking the easycomm 2 protocol looked like it was pretty well documented so I'd just need to have my C++ code interpret the easycomm commands and instruct the Galil controller to respond appropriately.

The Linux null-modem emulator <http://sourceforge.net/projects/tty0tty/> seems to work pretty well for setting up the pseudo terminal pairs, and I've cobbled together a program to read and write on the serial port. If I run the null modem program to generate the pseudo terminal pair /dev/pts/23 <=> /dev/pts/24 I can then run rotctl as:

rotctl -vvvvv -m202 -r /dev/pts/23

and run my program connected to /dev/pts/24. This all seems to be fine. If I use the set position command "P" in rotctl, my program successfully gets the command string, an example being:

AZ45.0 EL78.0 UP000 XXX DN000 XXX

What I'm not finding documentation on is what the protocol should be for the get position command "p". My program receives a single exclamation point "!", and that is consistent with what rotctl is reporting that it sent. OK, that's easy enough to decode, but what do I send back? I've tried just replying with a string like what rotctl sends to the rotator, namely:

AZ270.0 EL90.0 UP000 XXX DN000

but rotctl doesn't seem to understand that. The response is:

Rotator command: p
easycomm_rot_get_position called
write_block(): TX 1 bytes
0000 21 !
read_string(): RX 31 characters
0000 41 5a 32 37 30 2e 30 20 45 4c 39 30 2e 30 20 55 AZ270.0 EL90.0 U
0010 50 30 30 30 20 58 58 58 20 44 4e 30 30 30 20 P000 XXX DN000
easycomm_rot_get_position: unknown replay (AZ270.0 EL90.0 UP000 XXX DN000 )
get_pos: error = Command rejected by the rig
I'll go see if I can figure this out from the hamlib source code, but if it is documented somewhere that could save me some time.

Re: Hamlib-developer Digest, Vol 109, Issue 1

Hello,

Regarding the upcoming release, what can I do to verify my submission for the CNCTRK positioner type is included in the release?  The patch was uploaded January.15.

A description of the system was recently published in the AMSAT Journal.  Copies of the article and the related files are available on my web site, here:

ki4sbl.dodropin.org/CNCTRK

Please advise.

Thank you,
Bob

As it is mentioned in your spec. The yaesu 757gx is in beta phase.
The main problem is that the cat is working one way not bidrectional.
So wating to have feedback if the freq is correct on the transcriver is not correct
There is no feedback
Pleas can you correct this
Thanks

Omni VII patch

Patch for TenTec Omni VII to allow rig control with latest version of wsjt-x.

This has been broken for a while due to some change in wstj-x which caused a new error to show up.
