Beware, this is a constant work in progress and may not reflect the most optimal settings.
This page represents a list of the notes I have taken during my operations of the various radios I own. This is no means an authoritative source on the most suitable settings for each radio, but these are the settings that seem to work best for me. If you choose to use these settings your mileage my very. Check back often as I learn new things about each radio and how they work with the various digital modes out there. These notes are specifically in relations applications running under Linux.
The following menu settings have been changed from the default settings.

For the most part Flrig works right out of the box with such applications as Fldigi, QSSTV and WSJTX. Within the rig control settings of each application Flrig needs to be selected without any other settings. Flrig will handle any interaction with the radio, so there isn’t a need for the application to provide any additional rig control. I do however run into situations where Flrig looses control of the radio and refuses to connect. This typically happens if a second instance of Flrig is started. Sometime unplugging the USB cable from the radio and plugging it back in and selecting the correct USB serial interface within the settings will resolve the issue. A reboot my need to be performed should this not resolve the connectivity issues with Flrig. As a bonus Flrig has the FTDX 3000 defined within it’s list of radios supported through the UI. No more selecting “Yaesu FTDX 5000” like you have to do when using Hamlib.
