Icom 7300 WSJT-X Using DXLab Suite Commander, JT Bridge And RUMLogNG
DXLab Commander isn’t actually installed on the Mac, but that setting is used in WSJT-X by RUMLogNG. This was a little confusing to me at first.
As it would play out I got it working, and as quickly as it was working it stopped. I was testing it and could not get the connection going again. I was opening it like I do on my PC. On my PC, I open Ham Radio Deluxe and HRDLogbook, then I opened WSJT-X and finally JT-Alert. That’s the sequence for the PC. There’s also a way to automatically open WSJT-X with JT-Alert, but I won’t go there now.
That’s the sequence I was trying on the iMac. It does not work for me on the iMac. The best sequence is to open JT Bridge first, then open WSJT-X. WSJT-X will open RUMLogNG automatically. It’s genius!
I still have trouble every now and then with WSJT-X using DXLab Suite Commander if I don’t open it right. Sometimes when I go to WSJT-X and look under preferences, I’ll test the CAT connection and it doesn’t light up as green. The solution: Close those programs and then open it up with JT Bridge first, then WSJT-X and RUMLogNG opens automatically.
So here’s the setup and demo, WSJT-X Using DX Lab Suite Commander for rig:
I have made a number of QSO’s and really enjoy using WSJT-X, JT-Bridge and RUMLogNG. If you have a better way or suggestion, please let me know. I’m always happy to hear from fellow hams. Please comment below. Best 73 and good DX. – Rich, K0PIR
