Hi all

Sending second posting since first one was sent too soon after subscribing.

Thank you for the work put into WSJX-X. Excellent!

WSJT-X 1.80 GA does not support the new Flex Radio 6400 or 6600 series model 
radios either via serial (Kenwood TS2000) or IP (Flex 6xxx).

Back in late December (with the help of Michael Black), I downloaded the Hamlib 
daily snapshot source code from their repository on Github. I edited the flex.c 
and kenwood.c files to add the new Flex 6400 and 6600radios with their proper 
radio ID, then compiled Hamlib.

I then downloaded the WSJT-X 1:80 GA source code and compiled it with the 
updated Hamlib I created with additions. It works 100% either via IP or serial 

Michael Black contacted Nathan on the Hamlib team and had the changes comitted 
to their source code and it is abailable by pulling the daily snapshot. There 
may be other radio updates as well.

David Fischer contacted me today and let me know the current WSJT-X source code 
doesn’t include the updated Hamlib.

Can you please update the Hamlib code in your project so current GA release can 
be updated to support the new radios and also any upcoming releases as well? 
With the 6400 and 6600 radios now shipping it is only a matter of time before 
someone runs into problems trying to run WSJT-X with the new models.

If you need further information such as changes that I did to Hamlib, please 
contact me.

Thank you

Hi David,

I update the Hamlib sources to the latest master branch HEAD when I make a release kit. There will be a WSJT-X release candidate for the new DX-pedition FT8 enhancements quite soon. I have pushed the latest Hamlib master branch changes to my fork's integration branch so anyone building from WSJT-X sources should pick up the latest Hamlib changes. This includes IC-7610 support as well as your FlexRadio updates if anyone wants to try them out.
