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.
