Hi everyone, I don't see the IC-821H listed in the CAT command rig selection menu. Any ideas how to use it? 73's, Adam
Hello Irad, I have uploaded the debug file, let me know if it is showing something useful. 73's Adam
Hello Irad, unfortunately the new set of CAT commands to IC-821H does not work. I only have PTT (RTS) working, (that sometimes can't access the USB port but it's OK). More issues I notice are the following: 1. After selecting the varAC icon, the HF modem will always start, no matter if the SAT modem is set to active through Profile menu. This leads to a warning that 2 modems are active from the same folder. OK, I turn off HF modem manually. 2. To test CAT commands to IC-821H through Settings I need a valid VHF frequency to be selected which is not included in the list, I see only HF frequencies. I can only temporarily write something like 144.174000 in that field that I am not certain if it is accepted. In the main program's freq list I did save a VHF frequency. The IC-821H on this installation is making FT-8 on the QO-100 without problems ruling out hardware and PC issues.
Add this to thr VarAC CAt command file and LMK if it works.
Remember that IC-821 has no PTT CAT command so PTT will need to be handled through RTS/DTR .
