|0003039||Ham Radio Deluxe||Bug||public||2019-01-06 04:33||2019-01-16 22:05|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||18.104.22.168|
|Summary||0003039: Yaesu FT-991A and FTDX-3000 not keying Via Rigcontroll and DM-780 Beta 22.214.171.124|
|Description||From a customer:|
Mike wa9pie ask me to contact tech support.
With this beta release the PTT is not activated by DM780 or by the TX button.
The Tune button does work.
This is the case for the FT-991A and FTDX-3000
|Steps To Reproduce||In Rig control click the TX Button... NO TX|
It does go in TX when clicking the Tune Button
In Digital Master go to Program Options > PTT
Set PTT via Ham Radio Deluxe, try to TX in PSK-31 (or other mode) NO TX
|Additional Information|| Ticket #711518 |
Looks like both radio's using the same CAT command set for activating the PTT
This is broken somewhere down the line.
This happening from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 (as far I am aware)
|Tags||FT-991A, FTDX-3000, Yaesu|
With both radio's, go in Rig Control
Run the Tools > Command Tester, select the correct comport and further settings...
Input the CAT command string to put the radio in TX... SUCCESS!
This makes me think the TX button does not send the correct CAT code to the radio
This issue was caused by the fix for 2877 and 1449, both issue around the transmit meters (SWR, Power, and ALC) not working in the rig control UI.
We can think of the buttons in Rig Control "declaring" a feature of the radio. The definition of a button tells us which command to send to activate the feature and which to turn it off. The button definition also tells us how to query the radio to see if the radio says the feature is on or off.
In this case, the "TX" button declares the transmit "feature". HRD occasionally (continuously, kind of) polls the radio for its status, including asking it if it is transmitting ... by using the commands defined for each radio by the "TX" button declaration for that radio. If the radio reports that it is transmitting, the values of the displayed meters are queried and then displayed. If the radio doesn't say it is transmitting, the values of the transmit meters aren't queried and they're set to zero in the Rig Control UI.
Turns out some radios discern between transmit initiation by CAT command or by the key on the microphone. The FT-991A and FTDX-3000 are two such radios. They send different status values when queried depending on if the radio was commanded (by CAT) to key down, or if the microphone key was actually down.
In bugs 1449 and 2877, the radios were never queried for the transmit meter readings because Rig Control was using the wrong status command to get the transmit status. In fixing that issue, I upset the transmit command sent by rig control to turn on transmit.
this issue is fixed with this checkin:
I have two users verifying that this is fixed.
HOWEVER... one user reports the following (that is likely unrelated):
"The TX button in both rig control and dm780 will transmit. However a macro for calling cq will not transmit automatically which it did before."
