RTS from the DB9 serial connector which worked perfectly with Fldigi and
Serial Port Terminal.
In an attempt to use WSJT-X I got a USB to serial converter which works
perfectly with Fldigi and Serial Port Terminal. WSJT-X, when set to key
with /dev/ttyUSB0 and RTS, will key the transmitter but is erratic in
Strangely, if I set WSJT-X to use DTR it will also key the transmitter
but most often fails to un-key it. This should not happen as my
interface does not even have the DTR line connected. Neither of the
other programs will key the transmitter if DTR is raised so there is not
a wiring error. WSJT-X is apparently raising both RTS and DTR
regardless of the configuration setting.
Perhaps WSJT-X in raising both RTS and DTR runs into a timing problem
when bringing them down.
Hope this helps as I would prefer to not use VOX control.
