Is anyone using a piece of software that relies on Hamlib to do the serial (CAT) control of the X108-G ? One example is WSJT-x for FT8 mode. I have this working but after about 5 minutes with everything decoding fine, a popup comes from Hamlib saying it can't communicate with the rig. If I clear this it's fine for about another 2 minutes and then comes up again. I have tried different speed / byte / stop bit settings - I feel that the problem occurs less often at a higher comm speed but I'm not sure. Sometimes the only way to clear the error is to turn the X108G off and on again. I am using PTT via the PTT connection in the mini-din Aux plug and while there appears to be a delay between the PC telling the rig to Tx and it actually happening, it does work - but messes up FT8's timing. I would switch to using the CAT command for PTT as well as frequency control and signal strength reporting but while Hamlib keeps dropping the connection, that's not a good solution. Are we sure that the X-108G emulates an IC-7000 or is there a better choice in the list of rigs supported by Hamlib? I have not tried rig control using HRD as I'd like to run FT8 and for that I need WSJT-x, which in turn needs HamLib. 73 Ed DD5LP.
