TS480 Problems

 
TS480-SAT with serial to USB converter - worked fine with Ham Radio deluxe in Windows 7. I have carried out varioius checks as suggested in the forum.
 
charlie@charlie-Lappie ~ $ sudo useradd -G dialout charlie
useradd: user 'charlie' already exists
 
============================================
From cqrlog --debug :
 
Settings:

charlie@charlie-Lappie ~ $ /usr/bin/rigctl -m 228 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 9600
rig_open: error = IO error
 
But if I log in as root:
 
/usr/bin/rigctl -m 228 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 9600
 
TS480 is seen:
 
rig_register (228)

Opened rig model 228, 'TS-480'

Any help greatly appreciated!

Set everything as default.

Re: TS480 Problems

Hi Charlie,
 
are you member of dialout group? That will be the problem.
Use
sudo useradd -G dialout yourusername
after that, please log out nad log in again. It should work.

Petr & Tom,

Petr & Tom,
Now working! Using the command above did not actually add me to the dialout group so I had to go into Administration > User and groups and add me there (this is in Linux Mint), log out/log in and CQRlog was communicating with the TS480.
 
Thanks!
 
Charlie.

See if this works

See if this works
 
My settings for the TS-480 are now as this:
Rig ID model: 214Device: /dev/ttyS0 (because I have connected the radio to the computer with RS232, if you use USB, then the settings should be: /dev/ttyS1)Poll rate: 125Port number: 4532Serial speed: 9600 ( make the same settings in the radio, under meny nr.56)all other settings: default
 
The very low poll rate make changing of the freq/band without delays.
The rest should be default.

For further refference......

For further refference......

This comment is wrong......

Use :  sudo addgroup <your user name> dialout

useradd is to add a new user to the system :)

good luck

Alex,

Alex,
Yes, I realised that - eventually - by looking at at Users & Groups in Adminstration.
