I've been using my K2 successfully with AA6YQ's DXLab Commander and WinWarbler. There are some modes WinWarbler does not support, so I wanted to try fldigi-3.21.40.
Fldigi is able to control the K2 using HamLib, but for some reason will not work when using rigCAT. I downloaded the K2.xml file but saw an older post by G4ILO that the K2 and K3 .xml files on the fldigi website do not work. The K2.xml file is dated 2010, newer than G4ILO' post, so I'm not sure if his observation is still valid.
I don't get any kind of error message, it simply doesn't communicate with the rig. I'm using a serial COM port, not a USB/serial adapter. Strangely, HamLib control works fine.
Has anyone had success using the K2.xml file with rigCAT? Does it need some sort of modification to work properly? Thanks!
I didn't notice if you said that you're running Windows or something else.
I'll assume you're on Windows.
I had trouble using fldigi/rigcat with the K2, but the associated flrig
program works fine (also downloadable from the w1hkj site, the same place
you get fldigi). flrig and fldigi work together so that it's like you're
using rigcat with fldigi, except that flrig provides more capability such
as controlling power, controlling split frequency operations, etc.
There is a Yahoo Group for fldigi called win-fldigi that you should join to
ask questions relating to fldigi. Dave (w1hkj) monitors the group and
frequently responds to questions.
