This week, I replaced my long time favor FT1000D with IC7800 in the main rig
--- Same PC with XP Pro, WriteLog latest version, DIGI Keyer with latest
microHAM USB Device Router 5.0.1, and less than 1 week old IC7800 ---
Actually I received DB15-IC7800 cable for microHam to replace the original
cable for FT1000, nothing else is changed.
WriteLog PORTS are
WL DIGI Keyer (CAT level jumpers set to RS-232)
CommSlot1=4 No Rig PTT: RTS
CommSlot2=5 Icom IC-7800 9600 Poll x Comm PTT YES Radio 9600 8N2
CommSlot3=6 CW (No Rig) CW: DTR
CommSlot4=7 No Rig FSK: x PTT
x All mode PTT on CW port RTS
IC7800 CI-V Baud Rate Auto
CI-V Address 6Ah
CI-V Transceive ON
RS-232C Function CI-V
Decode Baud Rate 9600
Frequency / Mode are talking to the radio from WriteLog.
I can test DIGI Keyer PTT OK through Device Router (DIGI Keyer panel LED PTT
ON and IC7800 on TX).
ISSUE is --- On FSK, the radio PTT is actually keyed from WriteLog with
MMTTY but WriteLog DVK (sound board) does not key the IC7800 PTT on SSB
(DIGI Keyer panel LED PTT stays OFF).
At the same condition, FT1000D is keyed when DVK is activated through the
function keys. I used old COM port setup with FT847 on COM1, PTT is keyed
Smells like some how the issue is within WL but I was unable to find any
hint in regard to PTT matter on SSB. Of course the wave file audio output
will be transmitted if I keyed the PTT manually from either front panel
TRANSMIT or external PTT through ACC jack (or turn on VOX).
Any advise why remote PTT is not working ?
