Doesn't do the original poster any good, but thought I'd mention both TS590 models have a menu item for "VOX operation with data input". "Data" input for a 590 includes an audio stream being sent from a computer to the radio over the USB line. They also have a VOX gain for USB which is separate from the mic VOX settings. I have used it for audio to the rig from N1MM. Works fine. I'd guess newer Kenwood models include something similar.

OK, after the 'Test, I will Rich.  Thanks.  I gotta figure this out or it'll bug me--hi.

Perfect (as always) on CW but wonky on SSB.

Determined it works perfectly on CW, but get's locked to one radio after working once only on SSB.

If someone can point me to instructions on how to revert to previous versions I'll assist in finding out when this occurred.

GA Jamie,

That's fine for 1-off function keys, but I'm right handed and always use ESM, so using only my right hand, I can hit CTRL+ENTER and always have one radio transmitting and the other radio receiving.....if I am CQing a few times in a row, it's always been CTRL<enter>, CTRL<enter, CTRL<enter>, but now it's not working that way.

I have tried different SO2R settings, but can't get it to act as before.

The PC hasn't been rebooted in a while, so as soon as I am done in ARRL DX SSB, I'll do that first (that's caught me out before) and then start rolling back revisions.

Thanks !

Very confusing, especially when you get a caller....you don't "know" (muscle memory) where the next transmission is gonna end up.

What happened?

The closest I can get to the old way is "dual CQing", but I don't want "automatic", I wish to control where my transmissions go and when, by hitting CTRL+ENTER (or CTRL+F key).

I don't believe anything has changed in this area in a while.

Try earlier releases and see if you can determine if and when this changed.

Re: Flaky Available Window?

John Bednar
 

Fred,

Check the Telnet window filtering and Available window bands & modes window.

If it is on 40m or 160m, make sure that you set the SSB frequency to mode range to include the ssb frequencies. You can see where the SSB range starts by looking at the Bandmap frequency bar color.

Re: Elecraft K3S

ve3ki
 

What is the setting for CONFIG:PTT-KEY in the K3's CONFIG menu? Is it something other than OFF-OFF? Is either of DTR or RTS in the setup for the radio control COM port in N1MM+ set to Always On?

If RTS or DTR is set to Always On in N1MM+ and CONFIG:PTT-KEY is set to RTS:xxx or DTR:xxx, that will cause the symptoms you describe.

Re: VOX over USB audio?

N2WQ
 

Thanks, John. I was looking at the Configurer to learn more about the foot switch integration, but must admit didn’t read the manual.  Good reminder to do so.

Looking at the Configurer, I think I stumbled upon another issue- does pin 6 exist in virtual serial ports or I must use a true serial port interface? That is, if I only have a USB port, can pin 6 be set via software just like DTR/RTS?

Rudy,

 

We have used multiple stations on one band with VOX and radio codecs.

 

The foot switch selector contains a First One Wins selection. Cross wire the PTT from the other station to the foot switch input of the other station. No foot switch. The manual contains additional details.

I started writing my own  it is crazy to have a digital radio and then add analog boxes to do what can be done in software.

Besides, VOX outside of the logger prevents the logger from knowing that one of the radios is transmitting and the interlocks won’t work.

Rudy,

I am not aware of anyone developing an inline "VOX" from a USB data stream. There is a thread from a while back on how to key the radio for wav files.

https://groups.io/g/N1MMLoggerPlus/message/35899

If you are looking for  a way to use a microphone connected to the computer and key the radio from your voice, you could use an audio based VOX circuit on your microphone output. Google gets many hit on "audio VOX circuit".

Here's an example ...
