  1. Dr Linuxer,
    I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or Mint 19 Cinnamon,
    I am trying to run QSSTV (installed from distribution) wit my new IC-9700 on 2m (144,500 MHz), using a USB cable. I am struggling already for getting the right settings…
    Untill now I am able to receive pictures, load pictures for transmit. The program seems to transmit, but no CAT-link with IC-9700 and so no data-modulation and TX…

    On the IC-7300 I am using FLdigi with succes, tks for your fine suggestions on internet…
    Can you giveme some hints for the IC-9700?
    In anticipation my hearty thanks!

    1. Hi Jan-Pieter,

      I haven’t had a chance to lay my hands on IC-9700 yet. Maybe try and follow the wsjt-x steps described here for IC-7300 – just to confirm whether this would work or not. Also make sure you have the newest available program versions you are using as IC-9700 is still quite new radio.

      Thanks for visiting.
