New GBCAT is Ready for Download!


What’s New in GBCAT v1.2?

The greatest news in this version is support for Kenwood TS-590S transceiver. GBCAT support about 95% of all capabilities of this excellent radio, so give it a try!

Also, a few bugs are fixed:

– Fixed bug (TS-2000, button “PWR”): after Power Off/On, Audio and Squelch are initialized again.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): After GSCAN feature turned off, the following buttons unfortunately remained disabled: APO, FSK.R, iT2M, CALL, 2CALL.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): TX and RX frequency labels are at correct position now.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): Kenwood specific buttons MULTI/CH 1 step Up/Down now are shown correctly after NUMF/Set FQ features are performed
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): Sub receiver may stay turned on while GSCAN is activated. Control will be switched to the Main receiver.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): While switching CTRL from Main to Sub and back, Squelch value changes while slider position stays unchanged.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): Shown TX frequency now includes calculated repeater shift.
– Fixed bug (TS-2000): After switching VFO-A/VFO-B, the Power slider for the current Band now shows band power correctly.

A few minor bugs are also fixed, as well as a few minor cosmetic changes are applied. Please note that there has been a revision and extension of the GBCAT.CFG configuration file, so the old configuration file can’t be used with the new version of GBCAT.
