I’m trying to use Winlink and Vara HF with my g90 and digirig. It seems like I have everything setup correctly, and it seems like Vara HF is hearing audio from the radio, but I cannot get it to TX.
I am able to use WSJT-X via flrig to the digirig and g90 and make contacts that way, so I don’t think it’s a hardware issue. I must have something set incorrectly somewhere. Do I need / can I use flrig as the CAT control, or does Vara HF/Winlink handle that? I’ve tried both with and without flrig and various settings for com ports, ptt, etc and nothing works.
I know the digirig is on com 5 as I can see it in Device Manager, and it’s working with flrig/wsjt-x on com 5. What settings do I need to use for Vara HF and Winlink?
