Subject: [N3FJP_Software_Users] CW interface capabilities


I am very interested in using the CW interface, but before either
building the circuit or buying the cable, I wanted to make sure the
software did what I hope. Perhaps I missed the full description, but
in the help screens for CW setup, I only see mention of using F-x keys
to send preset strings. I figure there has to be some way to send
arbitrary text once in the middle of a QSO, but I'm not 100% sure and
would want to be able to do that. Does this feature exist, and how
does one use it?

Thanks,
Jim (kb9dna)

hey jim...you hit the f12 key and you can send code through the
keyboard....it worked for me.....i didnt like it so much.... but it was all
right....went to radio shack and got all the supplies for about 18.00.....
it took me about 2 hours to make and test the rig.....i made the mistake of
tring to make the interface on the 25 pin lpt1 port first ....insted i went
to the 9 pin com 2 port and all went ok......i also ran into the problem of
having a continual key and the cw was back wards....i turned the input pins
around and it solved the problem...works great and now im ready for
FD...good luck
