Review Summary For: West Mountain Radio Plug-n-Play; Reviews: 39 MSRP: MSRP $99.95 + shipping; Description: Built-in USB interface provides rig control, CW keying plus carrier detect for Echolink operations. The plug & play works only with a radio's data or aux jacks, not a mic jack and may be orered for your particular radio. Compatible with USB 2.0 or lower. West Mountain Radio RIGtalk RT1 USB/Cl-V Computer Interfaces do everything that the ICOM CT-17 does, without the requirement for a serial port. It provides a USB interface for CAT and CI-V Radios. You can use any rig control and logging software that is compatible with your computer and radio. I use an Icom 746Pro with a West Mountain Plug and Play to provide the CIV interface via USB and a virtual serial port. The issue is the West Mountain drivers are not signed yet. The current version of OS X is not tolerant of unsigned drivers now Apple has integrated System Integrity Protection (SIP) to prevent malware attacking users.


(The following notes are for Ubuntu but may also apply to derived distributions).
You can find the serial port by opening a terminal and typing:

Click “Hardware” then “Device manager”. Scroll down and click the “+” symbol next to “Ports (COM and LPT)”. You MUST see “West Mountain Radio RIGblaster” listed under this category. If not the RIGblaster installation was not completed successfully.


This should return a display similar to the one below:
As the output shows, only 'root' and 'dialout' have permission to use the serial port.
To see if you have permission at user level type:
If the group 'dialout' is not listed in the output you will need to add your username to that group. This is the most common reason why rig control or ptt won't function!
Use the following command:
where <username> is your linux username... and then log off and log back on for the changes to take effect.
If you have more than one USB serial device on your system you can use the following command to determine which ttyUSB device number is assigned to the RIGblaster: Drivers
