Asked for many times. So it is time for the developers to listen and
deliver.Yes. It should get as much as possible from the radio via CAT and prepopulate the log entry with mode (USB/LSB), frequency, and time.Hmm, I wonder if the program could generate a reasonable estimate of RST from S-meter data gathered from CAT? I suppose that, since fldigi is on and running, you could be looking at FFT data too. If you look at the medium term variation (say, over 10 seconds) of S-meter reading you can get an idea of noise level and strength above noise level. If the low reading is very low and the high reading much higher you can probably guess at a higher R-value. I am sure we could come up with some interesting heuristics that would be at least as good as someone's WAG. And even if the user doesn't like the programs's guess he/she can still overwrite it manually.For that matter, it should be possible to do this even more easily with the digital modes because you have already calculated S/N (readability) and IMD (tone/quality).You know, strength really doesn't matter. It is S/N that really matters. But now I am starting to ramble as I think aloud.

Sounds to me as though you have not selected the correct audio capture
device. But to be of any help we really need to know what sound server
you are using.
- Thanks Ed. I set it for PortAudio and am using 'pulse' for Capture and Playback and now can RX. I also have the mixer on /dev/mixer and set for Line In where the cable is connected.
Now to get the TX working!
