Here is a new TS-480SAT and I did remark the problems whith cat remote TRX and WSPR X.
first in the remote cat on a comport set the port and the transmitter on 57600 baud,
and on hardware control! , oke, then i connect the data port for the audio input and audio output
from the pc interface , so you have also set a secundairy com-port for the switch ( PTT ) to data mode on the data connector see the manual TS-480sat
This switch from the PC interface is muting the Mike and connect the data input to the audio from the TS-480sat

Hello fox

I mounted the cushcraft R5 on the roof and it improoved the long distance reception on 20 mtr and above to ten.
Now I test a magnetic loop for 7.1 , 10.1 and 14.15 I intend to make the remote for tuning and direction, the ZS6BKW
is in the N/S direction and i can't hang it the E/W direction
so then I use the loop on the lower bands.

I would like that WSPR can drive CAT- TRX at com 1 rs232 for

all known trancievers,
so then we could program the bandswitching,
on specific times,
the frequentie setting and the ptt(TX),the usb (mode).

So we can automate the whole process off prop.prediction

This weekend i did setup the station for all
bands RX and TX , pwr 5 watt ts870 and the antenne
for 3.5 7 10 14 18 24.8 28.4 is a ZS6BKW dipool
direction N/Z not ideal but it will do.

for 14 21 28 mhz there is a FB13 whith a rotor.

most off the time the ZS6BKW is connected.
we will see the results realtime.
