Summary0002953: FT-991 and FT-991A Frequency changes very SLOW!
DescriptionMany customers who use the FT-991 and 991A radios are reporting when they change frequency from HRD rig control, the radio is very slow to respond. They also report that changing frequency from the radio it takes an unusually long time before Rig Control reflects the change in the GUI. This has been happening for quit some time.

It appears this is not related to any specific version of Windows and has been happening in the last several updates to Ham Radio Deluxe, so the problem appears to definitely associated with the CAT control of these radios.

We have attempted to resolve this via support by trying different port baud rates and refresh rates in Rig Control, but nothing we try seems to resolve this problem.

How is this different than 2928? Do we need to have both issues open?

I'm going to pass this one. I've tried it at 4800 bps. And it seems fine to me now.


It sure looks like a redundant command is being sent. That is...

It seems to be sending (1) set frequency, (2) set mode, and then (3) another set frequency.

If I'm correct, it should be (1) set mode and then (2) set frequency. (The order is important due to the frequency offset caused by changing modes after the frequency is changed... which is most likely why there could be an extra set frequency here now.)
