[ct-user] ?CT & IC706IIG still not talking
Wed, 20 Jun 2001 17:57:43 -0700
Hello yet again,
I am running CT963 under DOS on a Toshiba Portege 7100 with the CI-V connection on COM1. I cannot get any communication using CT running under DOS. I t_e_s_t comm by typing a frequency at the CT prompt and by switching bands on the rig. The error from CT963 is _still_ "radio not echoing".
However, I verified the port and the radio settings using TRX-Manager 3 running under Win98. Both directions work - the computer to rig, rig to computer.
Here are the IC706IIG settings:
34 CI-V Address 04H (IC735) also tried 26H for 781
35 CI-V Baud Auto also tried 4800
36 CI-V TRN On (broadcast)
37 CI-V 731 ON (4 byte freq data) also tried Off (5byte)
Here's the ct.bat file I'm using:
comtsr1 -P1 -B4800 -N81
ct -d %1 %2 %3 %4 %5
CT also calls out RADIO1 as COM1 4800.
I find nothing in the Icom manual for parity/startstop bits so I have them set for no parity, 4800 baud, 1 stop bit. I also tried 2 stop bits.
What arcane piece of the puzzle am I missing?
