Re: Thetis and 7000DLE Volt and Ampere measuring circuit

I meant "other" non-Apache rigs -- thought I do have the schematics for the ANAN 100 that I got somewhere.

Re: Read Internal Temperature

hamlib is not part of Thetis -- it comes with WSJT-X or JTDX and is called rigctl-wsjtx or rigctl-jtdx respectively.
You'll find hamlib by itself here that has rigctgl in it.

If not that is an electrical code violation and bad idea to boot for RFI control.

I'm running Windows 10 Home Version 1909 build 18363.1082 and just did a WWV test on 10Mhz and it's rock solid.

Sounds like little like your TXCO is unstable. Did you do this shortly after you transmitted? Heat can affect things.

Not sure why you have subnets...maybe you should switch to a class B or class A internal network address if you just want more address space and aren't actually routing anything special. Personally I use a class A internal address space. Class A: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255 Class B: 172.16.0.0 to 172...

Re: JTDX rc152 PTT not working

I tested the same thing here and it still works.

Next step is to run this (note the "d" on rigctl).

rigctld-jtdx -m 2014 -r com1 -s 115200 -Z -vvvvv

And change JTDX to use "Hamlib Net rigctl" for the rig.

What do your rig settings look like?
