|Summary||0002715: Rig Control: help text contains bad link to ham-radio.ch domain|
Some in-app help text contains a link to ham-radio.ch; we should replace or remove this text. Perhaps the involved feature is actually obsolete and the whole thing can be deleted.
|Steps To Reproduce|
1) Fire up Rig Control. Connecting to a DemoMatic radio is fine
2) Use the "3rd-party serial port" command in the "Hardware" tear off on the "Tools" menu
3) In the resulting "3rd-Party Serial Port" dialog box, note the yellow text box.
BUG#1) That text box contains a broken link to http://hrd.ham-radio.ch/downloads.html

||I think we need to remove this stuff completely.|
This dialog was removed from the product (Mantis 2749) and then returned to the product (Mantis 3073).
Now that it's back, we must fix the outdated help text it displays.
Let's switch it to the following dialog (without being highlighted by default):
Ham Radio Deluxe supports 3rd-party programs such as logbooks via a virtual serial port.
Examples of a virtual serial port software include com0com and VSPE. A Google search for virtual COM port software will provide some options.
In the description that follows two ports are created, COM11 (used by Ham Radio Deluxe) and COM12 (used by a 3rd-party program).
Ham Radio Deluxe opens and listens on one port for incoming requests (COM11). The 3rd-party program opens the other port (COM12) in exactly the same way it would connect to a radio using a hardware serial port.
The connection parameters used by the 3rd party program to connect with COM12 are:
Speed = any (9600 by default but this really doesn't matter),
Stop bits = 2,
Parity = none.
The protocol supported is Kenwood, the command set current supported is:
FA Get / set VFO-A.
FB Get / set VFO-B.
MD Get / set mode.
IF Read status, currently frequency, TX status, and mode are supported,
SM Read the S-Meter.
To use this option Ham Radio Deluxe must be connected to a radio, otherwsie the standard Kenwood error response ?; will be returned. The radio does not have to support the Kenwood protocol as Ham Radio Deluxe makes the necessary conversions.
To test the connection use HyperTerminal (supplied with Windows) and connect to COM 12 (the virtual serial pot not being used by Ham Radio Deluxe). Enter FA; and you will see a value such as FA00050100000; returned (50.1 Mhz).
FA Reads and sets the VFO A frequency in Hz
Set FA<11 digit frequency>;
Answer FA<11 digit frequency>;
FB Reads and sets the VFO B frequency in Hz
Set FB<11 digit frequency>;
Answer FB<11 digit frequency>;
IF Retrieves the transceiver status
P1 = 11 digits, frequency in Hz
P2 = 5 digits, not used
P3 = 5 digits, not used
P4 = 1 digit, not used
P5 = 1 digit, not used
P6 = 1 digit, not used
P7 = 2 digits, not used
P8 = 1 digit, 0: RX, 1: TX
P9 = 1 digit, see MD above
P10 = 1 digit, not used
P11 = 1 digit, not used
P12 = 1 digit, not used
P13 = 1 digit, not used
P14 = 2 digits, not used
P15 = 1 digit, not used
MD Recalls or reads the operating mode status
Where mode is one of:
7: CWR (CW Reverse)
9: FSR (FSK Reverse)
SM Retrieves the S-Meter value
Answer IF<4 digit value>;
Where the returned value range is from 0000 to 0030. Each unit is 1/2 an S-unit. S5 is 0010, S9 is 0018.
fixed with this checkin:
