Icom IC-PCR1000

I discovered an Icom IC-PCR1000 in my junk box which I think will make an excellent WSPR receiver covering all bands. I would like to use WSJT-X with its hopping feature to setup a hop sequence where the band options change four times per day. I see that the PCR1000 is one of the supported rigs in the CAT list but I can't seem to get WSJT-X to control it.

It seems that any serial input will temporarily turn on the radio but then it times out and turns off. CAT frequency control doesn't seem to work at either 9600 or 38400 baud. Since the rig is listed as supported, someone on the team must have thought supporting the receiver was a good idea. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make it work?
