No Connection With TS-590s

I've searched through similar issues folk have had with their rigs not connecting but although I can query the rig's freq via the terminal CQRLog does not connect. I have flrig and xlog connecting okay using 231 Kenwood TS-590S, /dev/ttyUSB3, 115200, RTS/CTS and I have updated hamlib. The path to the binary is /usr/bin/rigctld Hopefully there's something in this debug readout that spotlights the fix.

No Connection With TS-590s

Hi !
In the beginning of your message you have tested with
/usr/bin/rigctl -m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200

Could you try with rigctld. I.E. add just 'd' to the line
/usr/bin/rigctld -m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200

And after that start another command window and try
telnet localhost 4532
When connected give 'f', do you get frequency then?

If ok, cqrlog should work. If not, try to add one more parameter for command line:

-t
--send-cmd-term=char
Change the termination char for text protocol when using the send_cmd command. The default value is (0x0d). Non ASCII printable characters can be specified as an ASCII number, in hexadecimal format, prepended with 0x. You may pass an empty string for no termination char. The string ’-1’ tells rigctl to switch to binary protocol. See the send_cmd command for further explanation.

I think your TS needs end of line char as ';' not 'CR'

That is just a guess. When played with my TS-50s with minicom it was required but I can not remember what happened with rigctld. Does the rig model carry the EOL information or not.

But that is easy and fast to try!

I have used TS-50s with cqrlog, but interfacing has been via home made WiFi interface done with ESP12e microcontroller.
It has rigctld emulation built in and I just change localhost:4532 to ESP.IP.ARR:4532 and rig model to '2' in prferences of cqrlog. The emulation takes care of EOL char.

Just making the first test

Just making the first test more informative:

Could you try with rigctld. I.E. add just 'd' to the line
/usr/bin/rigctld -m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200 -vvvvv

Adding -vvvvv shows all information in terminal window of rigctld while you connect with telnet from other terminal window.

Might give a glue.

Re: No Connection With TS-590s

The problem is here:

RigCtldArgs:-m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200 --set-conf=stop_bits=1,serial_parity=None,serial_handshake=None,rts_state=ON
RunRigCtld: FALSE

Please go to Preferences -> TRX control and check "Run rigctld when program starts"

With Preferences -> TRX

Hi Ed!

We are both too fast to response.
What Petr says is true. I tested, before reply, with my kitchen laptop and got same lines as you. Did not get notice to RunRigCtld: FALSE as I do not work qsos with that computer and the "Run rigctld when program starts" unchecked also here. It should give RunRigCtld: TRUE as it does when "Run rigctld when program starts" is set.

How ever if your rig does still not give frequency we could try again with 2 command line windows.

On first window give:
/usr/bin/rigctld -m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200 -vvvvv

On second give
telnet localhost 4532

After that on second (the telnet window) hit f (and enter)
you should get frequency as reply and in first window, because of -vvvvv you see what happens inside rigcltd

If f (enter) on telnet window did show rig frequency it should work also with cqrlog.
If not:
give telnet window q (enter) to close telnet connaction
on first (rigctld window). five Ctrl+C to stop rigctld.
Check that yor rig really is ttyUSB3 and that no other program is using that serial device at same time.

Forget the --send-cmd-term=char rigctl and rigctld have different commands. Even different meanings for same one letter commands.
I did mix them (once again).

IF you want to use CAT for several programs at same time you should first star cqrlog (that starts rigctld), Other programs (wsjtx, fldgi, etc.) should use rigctld as -m 2 (rig model2) at localhost:4532 (wsjtx says this "Net Hamlib ricgtld").
You can use only one rig CAT to ttyUSB3 at time. That's why cqrlog startred rigctld is used to share rig data to several other porgrams.

What does "cqrlog debug=1" give now when "Run rigctld when program starts" is set?

RigPoll: 500
RigSendCWR: FALSE
RigId: 231

Starting RigCtld ...
/usr/bin/rigctld -m 231 -r /dev/ttyUSB3 -t 4532 -s 115200 --set-conf=stop_bits=1,serial_parity=None,rts_state=ON
rig_open: error = Invalid configuration
rigctld failed to start!

At the point you started cqrlog were the 2 comand lines closed and 1st window rigctld closed with Ctrl+C?
As there can not be 2 instances of rigctld running at same time.

Before starting cqrlog you can check from console window that no rigctld is running with:
ps ax | grep rig

If it just gives line like:
2734 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto rig
And nothing more it is ok. But if you see rigctld with parameters as another line it is running there in background. Then you can give:
killall rigctld
so many times that it says "no processes".

So if we assume that at the time you started "cqrlog debug=1" there were no other rigctld(s) running already and you got: rig_open: error = Invalid configuration
the failure compared to your command line tests must be in part: --set-conf=stop_bits=1,serial_parity=None,rts_state=ON

I have only TS-50s (others are Icoms) and at least that rig wants 2 stop bits to work.

Next job is to play with Preferences/"Radio one serial parameters". If 2 stop bits does not help you could also try setting all "default" on top row and "none unset unset" on bottom row.

Unless some same model Kenwood rig owner gives the right settings here, (or you can chek these from your other ok running programs).

You are very close now!

That did it Saku! Interesting that explicitly setting the configuration as successfully used in Flig and QSSTV did not work in CQRLog but you made it come together for me.

My thanks to you and Petr for your patience and encouragement to this Linux newbie during this challenge. You've gone "the extra mile".
