pockettxrx problems

Post by arttuli »

I've had problems using the program this month, for example the tx audio is too small and the radio doesn't always obey commands. Do others have similar problems or is there something wrong with my devices, I have tried with different devices with bad results.

Hello,

How is your radio connected to Pocket RxTx?
If the Tx volume is too low, then you must increase it from the audio interface connected to your radio.

You can try the prerelease of Pocket RxTx v4 from here:

I use ic7300, it has usb port. I can't get it to work properly with the ft-857 either, the sound does work, but I can't control the radio anymore. The system used to work fine, now problems have appeared. I also reset the radio to factory settings, but the problems persist. I also reinstalled win10 when I doubted if there was a problem with it. I have also tried on another computer but the same problem. Now I can get the sound to work sometimes. Another surprising problem is when I connect with the phone, the tx turns on almost immediately and doesn't turn off until I turn off the jarec. with jarec v4 I can't get pocketrxtx v3 to work anymore. pocketrxtx v4 beta does open with jarec v4, but I haven't used it because I can't change to a different bands, it always goes to cb band. The frequency display also disappears after a while. With direct control, it works fine when I use a PC. I've tried everything possible, I can't do more, hi. I also use the remotehams pcforb program, it works without problems on both radios.

Hello,

Let's take it one by one.
1. IC7300 - check the radio settings as follows for full functionality:
- Connectors > USB SEND/Keying
USB SEND - RTS
USB Keying (CW) - DTR
- Connectors > DATA MOD: USB
- USB Serial Function > CI-V
CI-V Transceive: ON
CI-V USB Port: Unlink from [REMOTE]
CI-V USB Baud Rate: Auto
CI-V USB Echo Back: OFF

USB MOD Level: 50% (increase or decrease to adjust Tx modulation)
DATA OFF MOD: MIC,USB

in jAReC, use PTT over RTS, on the same COM port as for CAT.

2. FT857 - what CAT/audio interface are you using?

You may try to reset the configuration file in Pocket RxTx: OPT > SYSTEM > RESET.

All settings are ok. I put a video where you can see how the broadcast turns on by itself and doesn't turn off before I turn off the program https://youtube.com/shorts/_iJID61AL8w

Hey. Now I got ic7300 working with v3. I don't know exactly what I did, at least I did a full reset again to icom. The program works until I try pocketrxtx v4 beta, after which the problems repeat, and I have to reset the radio. I think v4 beta changes some settings on my radio.

V4 does not change anything in the radio. Hope you are using Pocket RxTx v4b4 with jAReC v4.0.4.
Please wait for 4b5 and jAReC v4.0.5. I've done a lot of changes in between. Waterfall for IC7400 will be supported too in 4b5 and 4.0.5.
