Does anyone know of a macro that will make a beep come out of the K3?

Here’s one way. 

You can send a string, say a letter ‘T’ (etc.) in CW mode with tone output only by embedding “<“ (RF off) and “>” (RF on) characters in a KYtext command. 

For example:

KYW<T>;

The ‘W’ forces the K3 to complete the message send before moving on to other commands in the macro.

I would like a macro to make a beep come out of the computer. i.e. be heard in the speaker or phones. {BEEP} doesn't seem to work anymore.

Hi Wayne,

Does the "W" suffix apply for all macro commands, or just the KY macro command?
