    I m just firing up my RXTX6.3 and having trouble with he USB/I2C use in Rocky. CFGSR works fine and the tune tab allows me to put the LO anywhere I want it.

      I'm just firing up my RXTX6.3 and having trouble with he USB/I2C use in Rocky. CFGSR works fine and the "tune" tab allows me to put the LO anywhere I want it. I've checked the "use si570-usb" box in Rocky, but I don't seem to get any I2C bus activity when I tune with the scroll wheel. The displayed spectrum is also chopped off at 7.1056 MHz. I have pawed through the docs, but I must have missed the key to this. Any hints would be appreciated.

        Ok, as Bruce says you should have mult-band checked. Next there is a Rocky.ini file. Under the line [Bands] You can add *CENTER frequencies all you want, ex:

          then when you save that and restart Rocky, Rocky will then have these center frequencies to pick from at the popup menu on the upper right of window.

          When you choose one of the centers THEN I2C traffic occurs to tell the Si570 to use select center frequency. The mouse wheel movement just selects where your soft "roofing"(if I can call it roofing filter) filter is set, not any change of center frequency. The mouse wheel will not cause any Si570 frequency changing to occur.

          That's about it.


          -- Charles

          I'm open to any corrective or additive commentary.

            then when you save that and restart Rocky, Rocky will then have these center frequencies to pick from at the popup menu on the upper right of window.

            When you choose one of the centers THEN I2C traffic occurs to tell the Si570 to use select center frequency. The mouse wheel movement just selects where your soft "roofing"(if I can call it roofing filter) filter is set, not any change of center frequency. The mouse wheel will not cause any Si570 frequency changing to occur.

            That's about it.

            I'm open to any corrective or additive commentary.
