I can't imagine why that would have any affect, but I am glad you found a remedy!

What exactly do you mean by "the backups were not properly working"? They should be just fine unless you were sending them to a non-existent folder or a drive that was full, in which case I would think that you would have seen an error message.

Dale,

I'm coming late to the party, and am a little confused. I assume that you are using both the USB and the C-IV ports. It is the USB port that does the keying. As Scott indicated, you have to turn on CW keying  in the menu (Menu > Set > Connectors > USB Send Keying > USB Keying (CW)). You also must be in CW mode on the 7300.

I just checked it with my 7300 and WPX logger and it works ok for me.

Hope this helps.

Hi Dale,

I have a Winkeyer here, but I've received lots of good reports on Winkeyer Mini, which is a less expensive alternative and works just fine, too.  You can control the speed with my software (which I do anyway), so you really don't miss anything by not having the speed pot.

Hi Scott:
Thanks for your reply.
I tried the 7610 settings but to no avail.  I just may have to investigate the WinKeyer.
Bottom line, is I would like to use computer keyboarding instead of the memory keyer off the 7300.
I have just about run out of combinations, so will “paddle” my way through the contest 😊
I am sure it is just a setting, but everything else is playing as it should (rig control, spotting, and keyboard entry to the main form.)
Another issue that has popped up (with no relation to your software) that looks like immediate attention is needed, is my amp is now setting off my smoke alarm!  The other half is not going to appreciate that at 2:00 am, so got to move the keying problem to the back burner for now.
Thanks for the great software!  My best guess is that I have been using it for close to 20 years!

Hi Dale,
 
Thanks for your e-mail.  It sounds like, instead of using Winkeyer or USB to serial keying hardware, you would like to key CW via your Icom 7300 directly.  I can't speak to the 7300, but the menu tree to make that work in the Icom 7610 is as follows:
 
Menu > Set > Connectors > USB Send Keying > USB Keying (CW).  I have my Icom 7610 set to DTR.  
 
My Icom 7610 presents two com ports on my PC, Com7 and Com8.  I select Com8 in the software for CW keying.  Of course, you have to choose the option for DTR keying in my software as well.
 
I use Winkeyer here, but the option above seems to work fine, too.
 
Enjoy!

I desperately want to use the keyboard function of WPX.  I can make it do everything it should, except key the transmitter.  I see the scroll of what is being sent, but does not key.  I don’t like using the memories due to the fact I can not insert another call into them when running.
My two com ports are #5 and #10
Com 5 is my remote and silicone labs.  Com 10 (USB) does rig control.  My “din” plug handles alc, relay, and cat control for my amp.
Win 10
 
I can not find the specifics of cw keyboard in the help file, and K0PIR’s videos center on HRD.
I know it can be done, I am just missing something simple.
 
You may contact me off board if you wish.

Hi Scott:

Thanks for your reply.

I tried the 7610 settings but to no avail.  I just may have to investigate the WinKeyer.

Bottom line, is I would like to use computer keyboarding instead of the memory keyer off the 7300.

I have just about run out of combinations, so will “paddle” my way through the contest 😊

I am sure it is just a setting, but everything else is playing as it should (rig control, spotting, and keyboard entry to the main form.)

Another issue that has popped up (with no relation to your software) that looks like immediate attention is needed, is my amp is now setting off my smoke alarm!  The other half is not going to appreciate that at 2:00 am, so got to move the keying problem to the back burner for now.
