Hi Dave,

often deleting the offending device from Device Manager then restarting to get the drivers automatically reinstalled sorts things like this out.

Re: CW-R problem

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

Actually, the FTdx3000 default CW mode *IS* USB.
MENU 060 CW BFO USB/LSB/AUTO DEFAULT= USB

Selecting AUTO will make CW = LSB on 160/80/40 and
USB on 30 and above. Selecting LSB will select
LSB on all bands.

See page 117 of the FTdx3000 Operating Manual.

The Yaesu FTdx3000’s default CW mode IS LSB so you need to choose the CW setting (not CW-R) in DXLab software. This will give you “Tune up frequency to raise side-tone frequency reception” and “tune down frequency to lower side-tone frequency reception”. CW-R will give you USB CW.

Re: Help with WW and Commander setup for Elecraft K3S

This is the test on which we are currently focused. After you configuring your anti-malware to consider WinWarbler and Commander to be safe, please repeat it:

1. make the General tab of Commander's Configuration window visible on-screen

2. with WinWarbler configured for RTTY AFSK, click the Start button in WinWarbler's "RTTY transmit (soundcard AFSK) panel"

Does the caption of the PTT panel on the General tab of Commander's Configuration window change from "PTT: Rcving" to "PTT: Xmitting" ?

Those two which were added, and the other DXLab apps that were already present in the list, have their private and not public boxes checked.

The optimal offset is the audio offset of the midpoint between the two RTTY frequencies (Mark and Space). If you click on the Opt button while tuned to an RTTY signal on a different audio frequency, WinWarbler will change the audio offset and Commander will make a corresponding change in the rig's frequency in order to move the chosen signal to the 2125 Hz Mark spot in the waterfall. If your Mark is set to 2125 Hz (the K3S's Pitch setting would be 2125 - 170), then the optimal audio offset is 2125 + 170/2 = 2210 Hz.
