Yaesu FT-891 dissable split mode

Post by sv1sdt » 11 Jan 2019, 20:35

Dear support team, thank you for creating and supporting LOG4OM. I'm currently own an FT-891 and wondering if somehow I can disable the dual VFO mode. Since we rarely work on split frequency mode, Is there any way the TX and RX indication to point to the same VFO ? (as for example to use single VFO "A").
As a CAT control software I use Omnirig v.1.18 and Log4OM v.1.36
Thanks in advence and keep going with your excellent logger program.

It's up to your radio and omnirig communication what is displayed. Set log at debug level and check the log itself. It should report vfoAB or vfoAA or something with double vfo shown

Hi Daniel,
thank you for your prompt response.
The debug indicates the following msg-

Code: Select all

2019-01-12 08:08:26.7638 DEBUG:      OmniRigManagement:     CAT OMNIRIG -> LOG4OM MESSAGE FROM RIG1 PM_UNKNOWN FREQUENCY: VfoA= 14075 / VfoB= 7073.3 / VfoUndefined= 0 / RX= VfoB / TX= VfoA 
2019-01-12 08:08:26.7794 DEBUG:      OmniRigSinkClass:     CAT OMNIRIG -> LOG4OM MESSAGE FROM RIG1 MODE PM_SSB_U SSB 
2019-01-12 08:08:26.7794 DEBUG:      TCPServer:     TCP MESSAGE OUT: RigStatusMessage CAT FREQTX B:False D:14075 S: --- FREQ B:False D:7073.3 S: --- BAND B:False D:0 S:20m --- MODE B:False D:0 S:PM_SSB_U --- MODEFORLOG B:False D:0 S:SSB --- CATCONNECTED B:True D:0 S: --- 
As far as I understand, CAT reads correctly both VFOs, but for some reason decides to use RX= VfoB / TX= VfoA. What we are trying to do is to use the same VFO for TX and RX.

Thanks again,
Fanis (SV1SDT).

Well it works fine with my Elecraft and Icom radios as follows

No split enabled

TX and RX frequencies are both VFO A

Split enabled

RX frequency = VFO A
TX Frequency = VFO B

Are you sure there is not a menu setting in the radio that reverses split of something?
