Okay. It was misconfiguration. I changed the radio type to full-duplex. Now gpredict is in control, pushes the radio into SPLIT mode and successfully controls both UP and DOWN frequencies. while I can transmit with the rig’s PTT. I’m very happy with the result!
I’m playing with gpredict’s radio control features. For rigctld I use kappanhang which connects to the radio via wifi and runs rigctld on 4532.
In gpredict my radio control options are
Radio-type: half duplex
PTT status: read PTT
VFO Up/Down: N/A
With these options gpredict successfully controls my rig’s TX and RX frequency IF I talk via the computer. However, if I want to talk through the radio’s PTT, only the RX frequency is in control, but the TX frequency.
It looks like gpredict knows the PTT status when I talk on the PC, but doesn’t know it if I use the radio’s PTT. It might be possible that kappangang’s rigctld doesn’t correctly report the PTT status, however get_ptt function seems implemented and I’m not quite sure how to verify this.
Anyone with IC-705, kappanhang and gpredict, I’ll be glad to share your config options and etc.

Gpredict is 2.3-72-gc596101-3
- main cpu 1.26
- others needed?
kappanhang should be the latest version.
