Would it be an issue with the SignaLink even if FLRIG, FLDIGI, ARDOP can all get the radio to transmit, or do you think it’s something in my Direwolf configuration? I swapped the jumper module, the SignaLink, and the cables with known-good and I still have the symptoms.
I tried the radio in packet, FM, and digital - the same problem exists on each mode.
Any thoughts on how to get the SignaLink to not do CAT? (I thought CAT was being done through FLRIG)
I am able to get FLRig to PTT even in packet mode.
Direwolf starts up, RIGCTL turns green, KISSATCH turns green, and
Pat opens up.
When I try to initiate an AX.25 communication, SignaLink PTT will
turn red, but does not key the radio.
That's a new one. If the Signalink's PTT LED lights up, your radio
should key up too. This is an issue with your Signalink, it's
jumper configuration, or your cabling. It's very strange it works
for other applications though.
You mentioned a FT857. What mode is the radio in? Try PKT or DIG
mode and try again.
And Pat opens up and gives the radio frequency for
my-rig, and the AX.25 can key SignaLink... there's just something
going on with PTT maybe? (Do I have that right? SignaLink
provides the audio/tones but something else controls the PTT?)
Ok.. this doesn't make sense. The Signalink only does audio and
fakes out PTT. If you're getting automatic frequency updates from
the radio back to Pat, this means you have another connection to
your radio doing CAT control. This is ok but you need to be cleat
that the Signalink should do the PTT. Configure all your programs
NOT to use CAT for PTT control.
