[WriteLog] Radio control of FT 890
Tue, 6 Jun 2000 20:40:41 EDT
I spent many frustrating hours of trying to make an FT 890 work with WL. I
was experiencing a problem of the radio cycling off and on (rx audio off, rx
audio on) about every two seconds when under the control of WL.
I sent out a request for help on the reflector and Ron, N9QQK, responded. He
suggested I select FT 900 in Setup | Ports instead of FT 890. This cured the
As it turns out, radio control for the FT 890 DOES NOT work correctly if FT
890 is selected in Setup | Ports. However, radio control for the FT 890 DOES
work correctly if FT 900 is selected in Setup | Ports.
I have asked K5DJ to put this on the punch list to be fixed.
GL to any WL / FT 890 users.
