11575RE: WSJT-X wrong tone frequency transmitted
- Sep 2, 2013
Today called JT65 CQ on 15m at DF 996. My VFO A was 21076, my VFO B was 21075. Spectrum Lab confirmed my TX tone was approx 2k.
WA8OJR replied to me at DF 1993 but due to the frequency confusion we did not make a QSO.
My VFO setting and TX tone were, I believe, correct. After the call I verified SPLIT was still active in my config settings.
Just another data point.

My polling interval is 5 sec but note that only VFO A is polled. VFO B is set, but never polled, by wsjt-x.
No other applications are sending CAT command. I'm monitoring all CAT traffic in real time.
I believe the 1k offset anomaly is caused by wsjt-x dropping split control. This leaves VFO B where it was last set but the transmitted tone is for the full DF offset from zero, rather than being in the appropriate 1k - 2k range.
Since the rig remains in split it will transmit at VFO B freq + tone freq. I suspect that the resulting offset can be -1k, 0, +1k,+2k depending on where VFO B was left and the position of the TX cursor. This happens very infrequently in normal operations with my TS-590S and I have not yet found a way to reproduce it.
Please let me know if you are interested in working on wsjt-x CAT issues. I have a list I could send you and would be willing to act as a tester for any fixes.
Have here been any CAT changes since r3496?

What poll interval for the CAT settings in WSJT-X do you have set?
Could any other software or hardware be sending CAT commands to the radio?

The VFO B setting for DF 2985 should be 14077. So looks like this a CAT issue after all.
I'll make sure the serial monitor is running when I try next.
Sorry for the confusion.
