I spent about an hour tonight interfacing the FT-2000 to Writelog. Yes, I
used the FTdx-9000 setting, deleted the .INI file entry, and reset all
parameters. Nothing, nada, the dreaded "No Rig."
I finally brought up HyperTerminal, read the CAT manual, and started
querying the rig with the terminal program. Nothing, nada. I reset the rig
microprocessor; still no communication.
I finally got it working; here's the magic: you must turn off the power
switch on the back, then go through the CPU reset ("Full Reset") routine
(front-panel ON/OFF switch while holding FAST and LOCK). I started getting
a bunch of ? for every FA; entry. Next I changed the menu item 028 GEnE CAT
TOT to the maximum 3000 ms. I started getting the correct VFO A frequency
response in HyperTerminal to my FA (Frequency A) read commands.
Great! I set 028 GEnE CAT TOT back to 10 ms (default) and started Writelog
(10.61E). All is well, now!
Synopsis: A true Full Reset involves cycling the rear panel power first!
