Micro-PC and PTT again
« on: 2015-03-20, 20:22:44 »
Someone posted a hardware mod to the dongle to have an RTS driven PTT, I'm aware of that. Is there any software approach planned in any update to the client?

I have a remote K3 that is used by myself and a few others with K3s and RRCs. We have one guy who doesn't have a K3 or an RRC but has acquired the Micro-PC client and can connect and hear audio, transmit using PTT on the dongle, etc.

For contests, we use N1MM and he currently can't use N1MM in  to send CW or to PTT and send recorded audio files in SSB, since there doesn't appear to be COM3 functionality or a way to do control-side PTT, other than modifying the dongle.

Is there plan for any upgrade to support such capability? Should he just plan on modifying the dongle? Any advice from Microbit?

A better solution for him is of course to use a Remoterig control box instead of the RRC-Micro.

We plan to put a extra PTT input on the Dongle for next production batch, but it's some month away.

Any other upgrades for the RRC-Micro is not planned at the moment
