@Rick, John make an important point about the CT-62 cable… I forgot to mention it. I prefer full CAT control because I can use the program to auto switch to the correct frequency.
@John, which sound interface do you recommend using? Prior to BETA 12 I was using “hw:CARD=udrc,DEV=0”, it no longer works in wsjt-x, and I found by experimentation that “plughw:CARD=udrc, DEV=0” does work. I get the feeling I am missing something…
Thanks for your input.

Yes, the accessory port is used for CAT control. Typically, you use a CT-62 type cable for CAT -- there are USB versions which work for the Raspberry Pi and FT-8x7 radios. For example https://smile.amazon.com/Valley-Enterprises%C2%AE-FT-100-FT-817-FT-857/dp/B0041LNISK
A couple of programs like fldigi and direwolf support GPIO PTT on the Raspberry Pi (which is wired to the DIN6 PTT line), others do not, so CAT, VOX, or other methods need to be used to key the transmitter.
