Name here is Josh, (AB9FT) from Sheboygan, Wisconsin (50mi N of Milwaukee along 
Lake Michigan)

30m conditions haven't been the best here past few days, if that is why some 
have not heard the server here. Trying out KAM+ on 30 (test propagation) and 
actually hearing very little as well. More one way with "packet" TX/RX then 
with PSKMail I have very regular copy of KB2PNM on 30m... Anyway, I have been 
having a problem with the server here with my IC-7200. It is a random problem 
that has no specific time but seems to eventually happen.. It can be either in 
the ID (where I have noticed it happens more often) but simply when its done 
transmitting, it gets "jammed" and continues to transmit until I turn the radio 
off. When that happens, fldigi apparently hangs and have to "kill" it. I am 
wondering if my problem is related to anyway to SA6BQZ's problem.... On some 
cases, it loses communication with the radio with a message about (Radio IO 
failed....). I should mention that I have it set up that it uses RigCAT with 
the IC-7200.xml that keys up the radio
 and has that special  "command (can't remember, its not NO500....)" to ensure 
the 7200 can key up with PSKMail Server

I have tried to troubleshoot as much as I can and getting nowhere with it. 
Started with different USB cables... Tried different linux distros (Lubuntu, 
Xubuntu, Slackware, Fedora, Mint, Debian) and different software combinations 
(newer/older versions) and get the same thing... Also, it happens whether I use 
frequency/scanning.. Pretty sure, its nothing I have set up for files, but send 
them if that will help. Beginning to wonder if its the computer, but that would 
be strange....

If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to mention.


Josh, AB9FT
