I have also noticed this problem happen 2 or 3 times each contest but I 
found a faster solution than shutting down WT.

All I do is:

Options > Configure Interfaces > Ok

And that seems to kick-start the CAT link.

I am using 3.27 a FT-1000MP MK-V and a USB - Serial converter, again not 
too sure of the chipset.
