CAT command ZZVS

CAT command ZZVS The ZZVS command does not appear to be listed in the SmartSDR CAT manual V1.3 which is for V1.1.7 of the software. ( I haven't seen a more recent version but did see where ZZSM was added to 1.2.0 in the 1.0.5 release notes). But the ZZVS command to set slice B = to slice A does seem to work. (see picture below and video). I have it set in DDUtil to trigger from the AUX 3 button on the FlexControl. Questions: 1- Is the ZZVS command supported on the 6x00 or is something in DDUtil supporting this behind the scenes? 2- are there any other undocumented and supported CAT commands? Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    Tim, Thanks for the reply. Since the command is not supported directly on the 6000 (currently) do you (or others here) know how this is working? I'm guessing DDUtil could be using a combination of the commands to "get & set" the frequencies behind the scenes. Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    That would be a "Steve question".

    DDUtil understands the following commands (so far) with regards to the F6K when invoked from a DDUtil macro or other internal function. I implemented these commands because they were needed to allow internal DDUtil functions to work. These commands may or may not work thru Cat depending if they have been implemented or not. See the Cat docs for what's been implemented for Cat. ZZAG, ZZAU, ZZBM, ZZBP, ZZKS, ZZOF, ZZPC, ZZRF, ZZSU, ZZSP, ZZTI, ZZVS, ZZXF Be advised some of these commands are not released yet waiting on different versions of SSDR and SSCAT to be released.

    Steve, According to Tim (and the FRS SmartCat documentation) ZZVS is not supported on the 6000 yet it works from DDUtil. Are you doing something behind the scenes in DDUtil or are you passing the ZZVS command over to the 6000? It's a bit confusing...... Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

    Al, anything not supported by SSCAT I'm doing behind the scenes. Don't forget that DDUtil v3 supports both the new radios and the legacy radios so I need some of the old commands to work as they did with PSDR. The tuning knob is a good example. ZZAD/ZZAU aren't supported by SSCAT so I wrote a direct link to the F6K so the old knob code could be used. Which was easier than rewriting the knob code just for the F6K. There are several other examples that work the same way. The ZZVS command is another knob aux switch command I needed to make work so I did. In the end some commands are sent to SSCAT and others are sent directly to the radio bypassing SSCAT.

    Steve, Okay, I think I understand now. You are using the radio api in some cases and cat commands in others. Thank for the clarification. (if I had the api doc, I would have figured it out sooner) Regards, Al. / NN4ZZ
