Re: [softrock40] Re: rxtx doesn't transmit
- Hey EdThanks to you and the other guys, I just got a step closer. Hitting enter after clicking on transmit, did allow me to hear an SSB signal in the FT897D but nothing happened in CW although I see the paddles having an effect in CFG. Even in SSB, it sounded like I was a martian and there was a delay.
I obviously still have issues such as calibration and I think I still have some softrock issues but it was good to hear my melodious voice. Ihave been using a 10m dipole and hope I haven't been sending all kinds of junk over the air.Marc, WB2MSCFrom: edingraham <edingraham@...>

After you click the Transmit button, press ENTER to get output as expected. The CTRL key allows you to change the CW tone.

- Does your sound card have any kind of "headphone expander" or other matrixing technology (like SRS)? These often cause crosstalk unless you can figure out how to turn it firmly *off*.-J.On 6 Oct 2012, at 06:38, "Brent G DeWitt" <bdewitt@...> wrote:
I agree. I’m just not sure how to kill it. Suggestions welcome!
