Hello All and Irad,
it looks like VarAC is designed for more bands than HF only, so I set up 2 transceivers on 2 meters using Vara HF. Note: both transceivers have a correct rit/clarifier setting to be within each others rx-'window'.
The first problem I'm experiencing is that using a QRG of 144.385 MHz (set in VarAC_frequencies.conf), VarAC sets it to 144.384.990 and 144.384.992, so that's a few Hz off. Maybe that's because the frequency is >= 100 Mhz with an extra digit now? Or there is a CAT error; used trx's are a Yaesu 817 and an Icom 9100.
The second problem I'm having is that a QSY Up 1 kHz with te #-button does not change frequency on either side, producing the error (also on both sides):
05:47:49 - Error: Unable to parse QSY freq: De indeling van de invoertekenreeks is onjuist. bij System.Number.StringToNumber(String str, NumberStyles options, NumberBuffer& number, NumberFormatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal) bij System.Number.ParseInt64(String value, NumberStyles options, NumberFormatInfo numfmt) bij System.Convert.ToInt64(String value) bij VarAC.VarAC.write_data_stream_log(String msg, Color clr, Boolean with_timestamp, Boolean with_newline)
(sry about the Dutch) There is no problem qsy-ing with the Up and Down buttons and changing frequencies.
Noted: I'm Down 750 Hz now, the QRG should be 144.384.250, see my first problem. That is perfectly ok because I started off at 144.384.990.
Thank You and Cheers,
Ok fixed also the QSY issue. it has nothing to do with the 2M frequency. it has to do with the Ø (zero with slash). now fixed. I'll send you another version that include also the fix for that
I refer to the not accurate frequency using CAT change frequency command.
I found the bug @Jan PH3J
Please send me an email and I'll send you in return a version to check.
No problems with an IC-9700 and Omnirig here.
