hi all,can't save settings nor can i save pre set macro messages!
OK... I want to post to this thread too. I am having a "save and close" issue with VarAC 3.2.1 too while editing the "PTT and VARA Configurations"... when I select any RIG and click Save and Exit, the rig choice is not remembered and it is still blank when I call up the settings again.
PTT is working... It's going in and out when I press the PTT ON and PTT OFF buttons.
But the CAT port is not (consistently) being recognized as being connected to the VarAC program. I think it worked with I first installed everything but it no longer shows up as a connected process in the SmartSDR CAT program provided by Flex.
In the attached image, the COM9 port is available from SmartSDR CAT -- and the corresponding port is selected in the VarAC settings page. BUT the "Process" indicator on SmartSDR CAT does not show a connected application... like it does for COM6 (where it is connected to Winlink/RMS Express).
I think all of these issues are because the RIG setting is not being retained across the Save and Exit. Any other insights here will be appreciated. Thank you. -John WA7UAR
Hi @WA7UAR/John the save and close does not save the RIG selector. The rig selector simply populate the PTT commands at the bottom with the right set of parameters. it is not saved. what is saved os the PTT ON/OFF commands and the CAT CMD TYPE (TEXT/HEX). If those are saved then your configuration is saved. If PTT still does not work - its a matter of defining the COM configuration correctly. Maybe some other SmartSDR users can help here. But since you jumped on a previous post regarding something else - I doubt they will see it. better starting a new thread in the discussion forum (as this is not a bug report)
any update on this @on4ibm ?
hey irad,found that i can only "save and close" the the color and canned messages settings
when i start the program as administrator.The frequency read out (top left corner)can not be hold.Probably because i use omni-rig.So far good program 73's
