HPSDR on 70MHz WSPR again

Overnight I remembered that it is possible to control the HPSDR under Cat control. It can emulate the TS-2000. So I went into HPSDR setup and changed Cat control to 4800-N-2 on COM17  and enabled it:-


In the WSPR program under station parameters PTT method was changed to CAT, enable cat was ticked and Kenwood TS-2000 4800-8-N-2, no handshake chosen:-


Remember N8VB VCOM previously set up a virtual com cable between com7 and com17
Now the HPSDR is controlled without DTR etc. WSJT can also control the frequency.
Efforts were rewarded. My signals were heard in Holland:-
