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!

Have you read this: https://www.cqrlog.com/comment/6385#comment-6385

TS-50 is old and slow.
Like we all retired are ... hi!
