CW paddles Work, straight key does Not

Just finished boxing my Ubitx V5. The center paddles work fine, but the straight key pulling the 4.7k resistor to ground does not.

Anyone seen this and have a solution for straight key nights?

There likely is a menu setting to designate key or paddle.

Also at least in the v4, paddle use has extra resistors that must be removed or bypassed for straight key action. The ubitx actually reads a voltage level to determine what action to perform in doing cw.

Richard, there is a menu setting to select straight key or keyer mode.
