Just a little something I’ve run in to when setting up my new FTdx3000. I had an OmniRig setup with my previous FT-450; worked like a charm, including SDR-Console tracking, etc etc. I run everything trough OmniRig as I don’t need any virtual serial ports that way, and it works pretty fast and stable. Even WSJT-X works with it.
Here’s the deal though: the supplied FTdx3000 profile for OmniRig, puts “Digital-UP”-mode in RTTY-DATA mode instead of USB-DATA mode. To fix this, I’ve created a modified profile. Just put it in the Afreet OmniRig install folder and select the profile in OmniRig. Should save you all some head-aches. Click here to download it. It also works great when working Split in WSJTX (set split to “RIG”) – e.g. it doesn’t toggle VFO like the default data profile.
Here’s my menu settings list:
- 067 – Data Mode: Others
- 069 – Other Disp: 1000Hz – This is needed as the FTdx3000 adds a 1000Hz shift in data mode – utmost importance for FT8!
- 071 – Data Lcut Freq: OFF
- 075 – Data In Select: USB
- 077 – Data Out Level: 1
This way – you don’t have to switch any mic settings – data modes have their own profile.
