I am using the 6-pin cable that came with the DRAWS plugged into the right socket on the hat and the data port on the 818.

Pat http loads but says it can't get the frequency from rigctld.
Because rigctld is not running

I'm using a FT-818ND. Hardware id is 1041. There is no ttyUSB0 in the
/dev/ folder so I must have missed something somewhere.
Do this to see if the device is enumerated at some other USB number

ls /dev/ttyUSB*

Either you are using the wrong device name (ie. could be /dev/ttyUSB1)
OR you don't have the CAT cable for your FT-818ND plugged into the radio
or RPi.

If the above command comes back like this:
ls /dev/ttyUSB*
ls: cannot access '/dev/ttyUSB*': No such file or directory

then you don't have a CAT cable for your radio.
