      Keying the key input jack to the softrock does not tell PSDR that
      you are transmitting. When running PSDR you must key the softrock
      through PSDR via a serial com port. Setup/DSP/Keying. Your key
      connects to the COM port and you key PSDR which in turn keys the
      softrock.
