[TRLog] Sending custom messages to the rig
Wed, 15 Aug 2001 16:39:13 -0700
Things are progressing, thanks to all the helpful inputs. I now
want to send a message to the MkV consisting of 4 nulls folowed by
CTRL-D. So, the F Key memory looks like this: CTRL-C CTRL-@
CTRL-@ CTRL-@ CTRL-D CTRL-D.
When I try it, the MkV doesn't do anything and the CAT light
doesn't flash. It normally does when receiving commands. I wrote
a little program in Visual Basic to try the command out and that
I'm thinking that maybe TR sees the first CTRL-D, figures that's
the end of the message and doesn't send the following CTRL-D. The
MkV doesn't get the number of bytes it's expecting and doesn't act
on the command.
Does anone know how to get TR to send a CTRL-D (assuming that
that's the problem)?
I think there's a way to get TR to tell you what it sent to the
radio. I haven't tried that yet but I will. Don't know if it
will show control chars though.
TIA for your help.
