[WORKAROUND] FT-891 missing in Log4OM rig models (CAT management)

Post by F4HWL » 28 Dec 2018, 17:53

Hi,

My goal is to use CAT commands with my Yaesu FT-891 and Log4OM, using hamlib.

Log4OM contains hamlib and with the "rigctl.exe" contained in the Log4OM\hamlib directory, I can see "Yaesu FT-891" with a "Stable" status :

Code: Select all

rigctl.exe --list | find "FT-891"
   136  Yaesu                  FT-891                  0.23.2          Stable
But, in Log4OM\CAT Management\RIG Model, "YAESU FT-891" is missing.

I wonder if I am looking in the good folder or if the list used in Log4OM is not synchronized with hamlib. I think to this second possibility because, if I search another model (FT-991 for example), the versions are different:
  • Using rigctl in the Log4OM\hamlib directory, the version is 0.23.5:

Code: Select all

rigctl.exe --list | find "FT-991"
   135  Yaesu                  FT-991                  0.23.5          Stable
  • In Log4OM, the version is 0.22.4 Beta:

Code: Select all

Yaesu FT-991 0.22.4 Beta | 135
Could you help me to explain me why the supported models are not the same between Log4OM hamlib folder and Log4OM rig models? Is it possible to have "Yaesu FT-891" in the rig models list or is it possible to help you in order to support and test this model with Log4OM?

Thanks in advance for your help,
73,

Hi again,

I have just read on another post something like a workaround (as YAESU FT-891 is not in the RIG Model) and it works, using this settings:
  • RIG Model: Hamlib NET rigctl 0.3 Beta | 2
  • Parameter String: --model=136 --rig-file=COMXXX --serial-speed=XXXX --port=4532 --set-conf=stop_bits=1 --ptt-file=COMXXX --ptt-type=RIG -v
Notes:
  • "--model=136" is the hamlib model ID corresponding to YAESU FT-891.
  • "COMXXX" should be replaced with the enhanced COM port used ("COM6" for example).
  • "--serial-speed=XXXX" needs to be changed with the speed set in the YAESU FT-891
So, I hope "YAESU FT-891" will be directly in the RIG models in a future release ;-)

73,

Did you try Omnirig?

Hi Terry,

It seems Omnirig can support only one thread, reason why I have preferred to use hyamlib.

I can assure you that Omnirig supports multithreading providing you install it correctly to 'Run as an administrator'

I run my Elecraft and Icom radios using Log4OM, SDR-Radio consul, WSJTX, bandmaster and CW Skimmer all using Omnirig simultaneously
