I have WSPR up and running fine however I have yet to be able to get the cat control to connect to the rig. I have WSJT-X working along with Fldigi. I have read just about everything here on the forums with no luck yet. I am using the Kenwood 2000 just as I normally would and have try all com port options-- Picture shows the error I get --- Any help on this one? Thank You

Please take a look at this thread:

There's no need to use a COM port to talk to the radio from WSJT-X.  Using a simple TCP port (as shown in the thread) is much simpler and more reliable.

You didn't say what model radio you are using.  Please note the special case for 6400s and 6600s.

Ok thanks---- Well try it tonight and report back. The funny thing is WSJT-X or any of the variances
 work great--- It just seems to be the WSPR software.
