After config of wfview , wsjtx doesnt work anymore - hamlib error

Hi all,
After being very pleased with my IC9700 for the last years I bought
a 7300 to also have a waterfall on the higher bands 10m 6m and 4m.
Beeing very happy with wfview and my 9700 I also wanted the 7300 to be
remotely operational in case of need.
So after a few days of playing ft8 with wsjtx I configured everything so the 7300 works with wfview what it does now. Took me some time to get the waterfall shown.
But now I have the problem that I cannot get WSJTX working again.
I don t want to run both at same time! But wfview or WSJTX each one alone - one OR the other.

So now when I configure wsjtx I get a Rigcontrol / hamlib error:
Sometimes it starts showing freq or directly OOB .
Then comes rigcontrol error…
it says after the rig control error:
Hamlib error : command rejected by rig
Rig get freq (2274) , freq mainB =7015400
/and some more lines/
Rig.c (2277) :rig_get_freq return (-9) while getting vfo frequency

Someone an idea how i can set the trx to work both with wfview and wsjtx? ( not both same time but one or the other)

What worked flawless on my 9700 seems very unstable and problematic on the 7300 …
I m a bit lost with all those CI-V options .Last Icom before the 9700 was a 706 :wink: where CIV was super simple :slight_smile:

Many thanks!

Hello Felix,

I had same Problems with my IC-7300 when using with Raspi, therefor I used rigctld.

in wfview I set:
Connect over USB: Auto
Baud: 115200
Enable Rigctld: 4533

Hello Felix,
as far as I remeber the problem was basically that wsjt-x at 115000 isnot working correct. At lower speed it was ok, but than no waterfall possible.

Hi Michael,
Thanks for all the info.
Thats also the impression I have ( that wsjtx cannot handle the high baud rate properly)

Will have a look at your solution

Mny tnx


Hello, I use WFview as a frontend for my IC7300. Then active RigCtld into settings and connect the rest of software to Rigctl via hamlib.
Run fine for CQRLOG, FLdigi and Wsjtx.

Hi Jordi,

You mention that you have CQRLog working with wfview’s rigctld. Can you share your CQRLog setup? I’m running Ubuntu 20.04 and wfview 1.4. I have wsjtx and fldigi running with wfview’s rigctld, but not CQRLog. Prior to wfview, I had CQRLog, wsjtx, and fldigi working with Hamlib’s rigctld. I’m curious if CQRLog uses a piece of rigctl that is not implemented in wfview’s rigctld as yet. Thanks.

Very simple config.

Happy new year.


That did the trick, but I’m not sure why. Clearly I need to read more about rigctld and port assignments.

Thanks, and Happy New Year! …DonA

Make sure you don’t have any firewall rules that limit you. Turn it off for a moment and try it

Hi Jordi.

I now have wfview, fldigi, wsjtx, and cqrlog working together using your config setup.

One other question: Can you get cqrlog to send cw using the hamlib interface? This was working for me before wfview. (Not a big deal, but it’s handy for contesting.)

Thanks again: …DonA
