Weird question...

I have a raspberry pi talking to my icom 706 via a USB cat cable.

It worked in wsjtx to set and see frequency, but not grig.

Now it works in grig but not wsjtx (or js8chat, or ftdx)

What stupid thing might I have done by mistake?

It was working again last night!

No idea what changed, but I deliberately didn't touch grig after a new boot and wsjtx was fine.

Until I tx'ed on 40m and it went haywire and was reading and writing random frequencies from the radio and generating errors.

I might need a torrid?

@M0YNG sounds frustrating.
Definitely sounds like some clip on toroids are a good idea.

WSJT-X does bundle its own hamlib, but if it sometimes works in grig that then that's pretty weird.

Personally I've not had much luck with grig. Settings that work fine for rigctl don't seem to work for grig at all.

flrig or rigctld might be fun to try at some point for shared access.

@M0YNG very possible that you may need a toroid. When you start from the terminal do you get any useful feedback?
