    I think I am having exactly the same issue.

    I am using Linux and wsjtx, if I try using ptt via cat the radio flicks to transmit and then back to receive, wsjtx still thinks it's transmitting I then sometimes get rig error.

    I also notice a power spike on the display when this happens.

    If I set the mode to CW it works fine. I am using the accessory port for ptt for now.

    Also the X108G in ham lib has not been touched since Feb 14, 2017

    The comment is interesting in Hamlib/x108g.c at master · Hamlib/Hamlib · GitHub


    /*
    * Hamlib CI-V backend - description of Xeigu X108G and variations
    * Adapted from IC-7000 code 2017 by Michael Black W9MDB
    * As of this date there is no CAT manual for this rig
    * The X108G is supposed to emulate the IC-7000 but there are a few
    * differences as of 2017-02-11 in the return data from the rig
    * It's quite possible they may fix all these eventually
    * If they do the functions below can go back to the icom routines
    * #1 the response to PTT
    * #2 the inability to set_dsp_mode
    * #3 setting splie which impacts 3 routines

    Thank you for the information and files here. I am trying to go digital for the first time, and this has been a lot of fun... There is a lot of information here, and I'll be sure to post if I was able to get her going.

    So, I have had no luck. still getting the same error message. Cannot connect the radio to the computer. I am also trying through the signalink to no avail. I cannot make heads or tails of why it won't work.
