RX1 AF: CAT command????

Postby OZ1CT-Ben » Fri Jul 17, 2020 4:36 pm

HI All

Just started to modify my own " basic_controller" made by John Melton g0orx/n6lyt but I need the CAT command for the RX2 AF: ??
...I know that "ZZAG" is master AF

See this topic: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2577&p=3827

The CATStructs.xml file appears in the similar directory under Thetis as well, if you are using Thetis.

Hi Scott

Yes I did see in the CATStructs.xml file in Thetis directory..... but there is nothing ....

so I still look for RX1 AF: but maybe there is no cat command ???

There are CAT commands for all audio levels. The problem is that they are poorly labeled/poorly named. I had to go into both the XML file and the Flex reference document and look through them for you.

In CATStructs.xml:

Master AF is called "extended AG Gain", ZZAG
RX1 AF is called "RX0 Gain", ZZLA
RX2 AF is called "RX2 audio level", ZZLE

There is also "RX1 Gain", ZZLC, which I think is for the main (RX1) sub-receiver.

You will have to test all of these to see what they really do. You can do this in Thetis by going to Setup > CAT Control > CAT > Test CAT Commands.

There is a CAT command reference guide in the Thetis documentation. https://github.com/TAPR/OpenHPSDR-Thetis/tree/master/Documentation/Radio

It isn't absolutely up to date but you are unlikely to encounter the newest CAT commands yet, I will ask Doug to add the newest one at a convenient point.
