Supported rigs

From Win-Test Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Win-Test supports most rigs of today's amateur radio market. The radio or radios (if you use two) and their communication parameters are to be configured in the Options Menu of Win-Test. Typically, you don't even have to guess specific baud rates or parity settings as Win-Test knows most of the default settings.

Kenwood

Virtually all Kenwood rigs are supported by Win-Test. They all use the same CAT command subset needed by Win-Test.

Note: Additional function for modern Kenwood rigs is supported by LUA scripts by N6TV that you may download from https://bit.ly/wtscripts in file TS590scripts.zip.

Kenwood rigs use by default:

  • Speed: 4800 Bauds
  • Data bits: 8
  • Parity: None
  • Stop bits: 2

Exception: TS-590S uses two stop bits only for 4800 baud. For all other baud rates, use only 1 stop bit.

Models successfully tested:

  • TS-480SAT
  • TS-480HX
  • TS-590S, TS-590SG

USB connection only; the serial port may not work. See Reflector post by RA3AUU. USB requires installation of the Silicon Labs Virtual COM port (VCP) driver. For VCP installation instructions, see this page on the Kenwood web site).

  • TS-850S
  • TS-930S PIEXX (Tnx FM5BH)
  • TS-940S
  • TS-950S
  • TS-570DGE
  • TS-990S
  • TS-2000
  • (others are known to work, but not fully tested, e.g. TS-690, TS-450, TS-950SD, etc.)

Icom

Virtually, all Icom rigs are supported by Win-Test. They all use the same CAT command subset.

Note: Additional function for modern Icom rigs is supported by LUA scripts by N6TV that you may download from https://bit.ly/wtscripts in file IcomScripts.zip.

Note: The VFO-B windows with ICOM is almost always grey on older Icom radios [1].

Best results for Icom radios are usually achieved by checking both the Don’t poll and the Use CI-V-Transceive options. The band map then moves very smoothly while turning the VFO. Another choice is to remove the check mark from both of these options.

Other Icom radios

  • Icom generic: This setting can be used to connect an Icom rig not listed. You need to set the Icom rig's address (found in the rig manual) in the wt.ini file in the [Interfaces] section. Please see WT.INI for more details.
  • IC-728
    Use the Icom generic setting with hex address 38h and set COM port to 1200 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit. Tnx VK6NU
  • IC-746 PRO
    In fact, the IC 7400 (below) is the European version of the IC 746 PRO. It uses the same hex address and should work with the same settings. Tnx F8CRH
  • IC-910H
    Use the Icom generic setting with hex address 60h and set COM port to 4800 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit. Works on all 3 bands (2m, 70 and 23 cm). Tnx F6BEE
  • IC-7400
    Use the Icom generic setting with hex address 66h and set COM port to 9600 baud (also successfully tested with 1200 and 19200 baud and TRX set accordingly), 8 data bits, no parity, 2 stop bits. Tnx F8CRH
