This is an issue with WSJTX and RigBlaster. Please take your question
to those organizations as it does not involve JTAlert.

The short answer is that you will need to use hardware PTT (for the
RigBlaster). Since Omni-Rig does not pass DTR through to the interface,
you will need separate serial ports for CAT and PTT. The exact
configuration will depend on your particular RigBlaster model.

You should seek assistance from the WSJTX and/or RigBlaster support
organizations. I suspect RigBlaster would be better positioned to

I am running an ICOM 756PROII, with a Rigblaster pro.  I am trying to get WSJT, JTAlert and Log4OMng working together.  Log4OMng seems to need Omnirig for CAT control, along with WSJT.  However if I "key" to CQ in FT8 mode in WSJT, the PTT does not engage in the Rigblaster, The transmit from WSJT does put the radio into XMIT, but without the PTT by the rigblaster, I get no signal from the computer to the radio.
Any thoughts??
