I am using hamlib since more than one year to control different
transceivers (TS-790, TS-2000) and had no problem with it. Well, of
course i had troubles but hamlib was not involved in that, and all
problems are solved today.
I am using Ubuntu 12.04, and recently I moved to 14.04 with no
particular issue. All these transceivers where connected to the computer
by the mean of an interface box (Microham's MicroKeyer II) which comes
with it's piece of software... But everything was fine from the Hamlib
Several weeks ago, I wanted to take the control of an old TS711 (okay,
i'm a Kenwood fan !). This kind of transceiver is rather old now, and
CAT control need a couple of interfaces to do the job. In this case to
prevent any problem, the transceiver is connected to the ttyS0 serial
port, an no audio is sent to the computer : this is the simplest CAT
test configuration that I could imagine. So I could fix all the hardware
issues that I met, and got control of the transceiver. I can change
mode, and event the RIT ( when you know how the RIT is handled by
Kenwood transceivers, this is really challenging ). But I never could
change the frequency...
A short look on the rig matrix shows that the TS-771 has an untested
state. So could it be possible that the TS-711 has never been used with
Hamlib, and we have a problem in the frequency control ?
If I can be of some help doing some test with the TS-711, I would really
be happy to do so.
Today, I am trying to control a rotator to get a full remote control of
the station, and of course got an issue with Rotctld. As this is a real
remote access, all communications are made by the mean of an SSH tunnel.
So I thought that adding the port number used by Rotctld, as I did for
Rigctld to the SSH command would do the job.
Of course it doesn't : When I send the SSH command from the remote
computer, I get an error message, and SSH do not start. So my first
question will be very simple : is there any difference in the network
connexion between Rigctld and Rotctld ?
>From the user side, they look like very similar at first glance.
I hope that you will be able to help me with this problem. I must add
that on the 'control computer', Rotctl runs perfectly, the command given
at the keyboard are transmitted to the rotator interface, and the
rotator moves to the requested position.
