I am running my ham related software on a Linux system (Kubuntu 18.04).
I have a quite complex setup with a number of programs communicating with the rig either via rigctld if a program supports it or directly via a virtual serial multiplexer written in python.
In this setup cqrlog is not always running so I start rigctld independently and configure cqrlog not to start rigctld at start up. This is working fine a long as rigctld is not restarted while cqrlog is running or cqrlog is started before rigctld is running.
From this situation comes my wish:
Add a function "Reload RIG interface" which is trying to connect to the rig again if the connection was lost, similar to the existing "Reload CW interface"
If there is already a solution or workaround that allows to reconnect to the rig without restarting cqrlog I would be glad to know.
