thanks :)

your description a little bit deceptive - only the Tlf-WARC
doesn't work, or any other Tlf-version reproduce this problem?

Of course, I'm using Tlf-WARC version too, with SHOW_WARC option
(I don't have antenna for WARC bands, so I can't work on those
bands), and Tlf works with hamlib correctly - but that's true,
I'm not using rigctld, Tlf communicates with RIG directly.

I always wanted to try the rigctld, and now I've done :)

Looks like Tlf manpage is outdated, because described this:

"RIGPORT=<serial port> You can use e.g. /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyUSB1,
etc... anything that looks like a tty.  RPC rig daemon users
should have RIGMODEL=1901 and RIGPORT=localhost.  In this case
RIGSPEED is ignored."

but with the model 1901 has been fault.

With this settings I can work through rigctld:

rigctld -r /dev/ttyS0 -m 209 -s 4800 &

and logcfg.dat:


(the RIGSPEED as the manpage describes had been ignored)

and Tlf works correctly :).

Then I stopped rigctld, and Tlf shows the RIG freq as 0.0, so
looks like it losts the connection with RIG through rigctld.

Thanks for motivation :)

please test it again with my instructions above,

> pc tlf-1.2.0 # ./configure --enable-hamlib 
looks like everything is right. If my proposal doesn't works,
please try it with directly to RIG (I mean put the RIGMODEL to
logcfg.dat, and RIGSPEED/RIGPORT parameters too).

And please let me know the result,

What's the second question?
