    Hi there,

    I am trying to get WSJT-X working with this Xiegu X5105. I have the factory control cable, plus a Signalink USB that I have wired to the mic connector for the audio portion.

    In WSJT, there is no X5105 option. Some say that the IC-7000 setting should work, but it doesn't for me. I select the only Xiegu setting (X108) and the CAT test passes "green." It reads the frequency as I tune the band, and on RX, everything seems just perfectly fine. Usual settings - 19200/8/N/1.

    However, the PTT test fails. The rig clicks to transmit and immediately clicks off with an error message reading "Command rejected by the rig while setting PTT on." I have read a few messages that RF can cause this problem, however I've put the RF at a minimum. 1W transmit power into a dummy load. (Plus, if the error message is accurate, then it's a command issue.)

    Does anyone know if the X5105 has a slightly different set of commands, or if there are other settings in the software or rig that I should be looking at? Might we see an X5105 setting in Hamlib one of these days? Thanks and 73!

    I too have been working with the x5105 trying to get digital ft8 to work. I am having the same problem with wsjt-x. I download MSHV. This seem to work great, however I do not seem to be able to make contacts. I could be having some audio issues. This may not help much be the keying works with MSHV. I have not been able to get it to work with any other software. 73s

    This is a good piece of info - thanks! Perhaps WSJT will get around to integrating this model. I will hive MSHV a shot though.
