JoeVE1BWV has announced that the team (Joe and Dr VU2SPF) have just released version 2.9U of their firmware to support CAT control and split TX/RX operation particularly useful for 40m operations and contesters. The new code is available at http:// vu2spf.blogspot.ca
The team has also been testing it with WSJTX FT8 mode and all is working quite well… Occasional episodes of rig time out appear to be related to limitations in hamlib.
