1559RE: [dxatlas] RE: Using IC-735 with CWSkimmer/RigSync
- Nov 10, 2009Burton,
Thanks for the detailed message. The setting shown in the quickstart for
Skimmer on the Options panel is not in use and not necessary. It is
unfortunate that it is shown with a previous beta version that had the box
enabled, even though it did nothing. This setting is reserved for a future
version of RigSync.
You do need to select your ICOM in the OmniRig part of the panel. The
quickstart instructions are correct here. Once your radio is selected,
RigSync should display the frequency. If it does, proceed in the
instructions to enable Skimmer with the SYNC and SKIM buttons.
If your radio frequency is not displayed by RigSync, there is a problem
either with the OmniRig setup or with RigSync's communication with OmniRig.
To check this, try another program that uses OmniRig to make sure it is
working correctly with your rig. I suggest BandMaster which can be
downloaded here: http://www.dxatlas.com/BandMaster/
If BandMaster works and RigSync doesn't, we have identified a problem that I
need to fix. This is where I need more details.
Thanks for working with me on this,
73 Ed W2RF

Ed, The Icom utilizes Comm 2 for CW Skimmer, Comm 1 for XMLog, MMTTY and
WinPsk. CW Skimmer works with the radio when stand alone. Ham Radio Deluxe
recognizes the radio and I have full control from the computer. When
used,WinKeyer USB utilizes Comm 9. I'm trying to set up RigSync on the Icom
using Comm 2. I cannot select CW Skimmer for Rig 2 as shown on page 2 of the
tutorial. The application button for Skimmer is not active. RigSync displays
SSB and Rig 1 & 2 are both checked on the first screen. When I select the
Sync button the vfo's go to 0.001 KHz from where I have them set. The only
program I have running when I try to configure is RigSync and the computer
is disconnected from the internet.
I hope this will help.
