Re: N1MM+ ESM Unexpected Return to RX

Robie,

 

This PTT issue is unique to the K3 radio. It gets confused when there is a radio command for PTT and the hardware PTT active at the same time.

 

When you press Enter in ESM mode, the program is attempting to play one of the voice messages below.  Remove all text after the comma of every line including the “-“ characters on some lines.

 

Also, in the radio com port setup window, uncheck “PTT via Radio Command SSB mode”.

John,

 

The issue occurs in both S&P and RUN modes.

Post your Function Key text.

 

Were you in Run or S&P mode?

Subject: [N1MM+] N1MM+ ESM Unexpected Return to RX

 

All,

 

I used my Elecraft K3 in the NAQP SSB contest with N1MM+ set up for rig control, foot switch is set to NONE and ESM is enabled.  I use a foot switch directly connected to the K3 for PTT. I have not enabled any of N1MM+s voicing features.  I noticed that when I have the foot switch pressed and  hit the ENTER key my K3 immediately switched to the RX mode and displayed  ERR PTT.  I have checked my setup and am unable to correct a setting that corrects this issue. The work around I used during the contest was simply to hit the SPACE BAR to move to the next field and not enter the QSO into the log until I had release my foot switch.

 

My expectation is that N1MM+ would not switch the K3 to the RX mode with this setup. Are my expectations incorrect?  If so, what should I expect?
