I wish to use VarAC on HF with an Icom IC-728. This is possible by using OmniRig. However I want to use the CAT-commands. I took the command set for IC-707 and changed the HEX-code from 3E to 38 on all places. When I try it out it is possible to change frequency on the radio from within the Settings window, choosing the different TEST frequencies the radio switches to that. However it seems impossible to change frequency from the main VarAC window. Does anyone have a working set of cat-commands for IC-728.
PS. I have another IC-728 that is is modified to HEX-code 3E and 9600 baud. Using this one all works well with changing frequencies when I choose CAT IC-707.
Functional CAT-command files for IC-728, IC-725 and IC-735 can be found above. I made a reply to myself instead of making a new comment.
Obviously that is not the case. As said with OmniRig Freq select works. I have tested with 2 different IC-728. The IC-728 that I have modified to 3E and 9600 bps works fine with selection IC-707. Maybe I should try to change to 9600 bps and keep 38, but then OmniRig worked at 1200.
There must be some difference in VarAC code when using TEST and when using Freq select, could this be investigated, perhaps by Irad?
Weird, if TEST is working then the Freq select will work.
Can you post the section of the rig ini file you modified?
