    Greetings! Has anyone had success getting an LNR LD-5 QRP transceiver to run FT-8 (WSJT-X) using the CAT cable?

    The CAT documentation at LNR. says that, "The LD-5 very closely matches the interfacing driver from Kenwood TS 2000 with minimal complications." I followed these instructions and tried using the TS-2000 setting on WSJT-X but cannot get the program to recognize the rig.

    The instructions go on to say that communication errors are "very likely" due to configuration problems with the software. I did find the last step LRN listed, "Good luck!" to be a bit ominous.

    Having never operated digital, I though that I'd give FT-8 a try.

    Any help would be appreciated.
