Rig Control

I have a Kenwood TS-50 that I have recently configured rig control to work with CQRLog (as Radio Two) by slowing down its rate of asking for information from the radio using a poll rate of 2500 and using

--set-conf=poll_interval=1000

in the Extra Command Lines Arguments and it works fine, but sometimes the TRX Control window will lose the frequency that the radio is at and show a frequency of 0.00000 even though (running CQRLog from command line) the Terminal shows that rigctl is receiving the frequency from the radio:

Sending: fmv

Msg from rig: 7178040
Msg from rig: RPRT -9
Msg from rig: VFOB
Sending: fmv

Msg from rig: 7178040
Msg from rig: RPRT -9
Msg from rig: VFOB

If I refresh TRX Control the frequency will return to the TRX Control window.
Any ideas why rigctl is getting the frequency from the TS-50 and it does not show in TRX Control or New QSO windows? This problem does not seem to appear with my other radio (Icom IC-718)

Thanks.

Hi Ken,

Hi Ken,

I also have an old Kewnwood TS-50.
It is working quite slow with Fldigi on my Ubuntu 18.
It is slow, but as a beginner I am slow too ;-), so I would like to get it working with CQRLOG.

What settings do I need in " TRX control" tab in CQRLOG Preferences window.
Currently I am using all default settings except:
Rig Model: 201 Kenwood TS-50S
Device: /dev/ttyUSB0
Serial Speed: 4800

Thanks in advance.

Hi Janeks!

Good way to start is to change poll rate. By your picture it seems to be 500 that is far too small time for slow rig like TS50.

Make it as 5000. If that helps you may try smaller value. How ever not much less than 2000.

Additional parameter (preferences/trxcontrol/extra command line parameters)

--set-conf=timeout=3000

may help too.
