W1ATR HF-AUTO and Log4OM

Post by kd0zv » 28 Nov 2019, 15:20

I am considering running my Palstar HF-AUTO with W1TR software to control it.

The program reads frequency via UDP and I really do not want to add more software than I have to do that and was hoping I could do this via Log4OM which is running all the time.

I thought I would enable the outgoing PST rotator with port 12040 and try that but does not seem to work.

I can fire up N1MM which uses port 12060 by default and that takes off fine.

Any thoughts on getting UDP data? Running a Flex 6000 series radio.

To add to that. This is in the documentation.

User CAT Control Software Configuration

When using a custom CAT Software Application, a Port Number for it must be added to the Port Configuration shown above.

This application must produce UDP packets in the form of an XML Document.

The specific format of the XML Document for a user define CAT application shall be:



<?xml version="1.0"?>

<USERDOC>

<FREQ>14275000</FREQ>

</USERDOC>

Hi, this is a "custom" UDP outbound protocol, it needs to be implemented in the source code...
I've some ideas about that on V2, but not planned and not before first public release...

OK thanks.

I am running FRstack so I can use a streamdeck for FlexRadio and SteppIR control and found that FRstack has UDP so just got it working about an hour ago.
