Lot of playing - now seems to be working ok.

I have no idea what I had wrong but all freq’s seem to match up.

Thanks for letting me know it should do it - that allowed me to move forward

Hmm

I have wsjtx -> Setting -> Freq  - Station info 

Band Offset
13cms  -2,174.000 000

On main wsjt screen select 13cms from pull down - Freq Box shows 146.985   (ok it is in red as that is a beacon I am looking at)
Cat control working fine with correct offset being used for correct band etc.

When start JTAlert the freq shown on the ‘info bar - (freq, mode, logger etc) is showing 2m

Will try adding the beacon freq as a ‘valid’ mode just to see if that is what it is.
Just remember there is a agregator to monitor udp is there will run that up tomorrow.

Hi Mike, Tom, and Laurie,

yes, which is exactly what it does.

Tom, have you selected the right band in WSJT-X? The band you set the IF offset for is the one you select. For example you might have -116 MHz as the offset for the 2m band in "Settings->Frequencies->Station Information". Then simply select a 2m frequency in WSJT-X and your 10m IF rig will be controlled as expected.

Seems to me WSJT-X should be reporting the correct frequency since it knows what's going on.

All

Not sure if this can be fixed/worked around - will depend I suspect on UDP message content

Testing a 13cm (2320) system - wsjt-x allows me to enter transverter offset so it knows what to set the rig to. 

JTAlert reports the freq the rig is set to - is there a way to get JTAlert to report rig + offset?

2320 - offset (of  -2174) gives IF of 146 - JTAlert report 2m - which is correct for the rig but not to operating freq
