Hello to all the experts on WriteLog reflector,
I have bought a new Laptop computer with Win7 and the latest version of
WL - 11.04A and am trying to use it with my DXpedition rig IC-706MKIIG
and DIGI KEYER II.
Now I want to configurate the whole stuff. My next DXpedition to 9Y will
start in November so no hurry yet.
The rig is working properly with the microHAM DIGI KEYER II, that means
frequency and mode are displayed correctly in the routers configuration
I have set the DIGI KEYER ports as advised:
2nd CAT: none
FSK: COM6 PTT
2nd FSK: none
CW: COM3 DTR
PTT: COM3 RTS
2nd PTT: none
Foot Switch: none
Winkey: none ???
So far so good.
When I open Writelog, the rig is keyed instantly and steady. The carrier
stops only when I close down the programme.
I have configured the ports according to the above mentioned ports:
COM 3 CW no Rig default Comm PTT YES
COM 4 rig control IC-706 Baud Rate 9600 Comm PTT NO
COM 5 nil no Rig default Comm PTT YES
COM 6 nil no Rig default Comm PTT YES
but when I close the WL programme and reopen it then it is resetted to
the following port config:
COM 1 rig control IC-706 Baud Rate default YES
COM 3 CW no Rig default YES
COM 4 - no Rig default YES
COM 6 - no Rig default YES
CW keyer Type microHAM MK2R
SO2R Control microHAM MK2R COM 4
What do I have to change in the wl.ini file? I could send the wl.ini
settings if needed.
Can anybody help with the same setup? Any suggestions?
I want to get it worked with CW for the moment - RTTY is another
challenge but later.
Thank you very much in advance.
