What is the purpose for female connectors 3,5 mm in the 1274B box?
I cannot find explanation about it on website.
Is it posible to use this conections to provide audio in/out to WSJT-X software on FT8 mode?
I tried to install virtual cable software to connect audio betwen RRC-Micro and WSJT-X but it doesn't work at all. I had to uninstall everything, seems to be some sort of incompatibilities.
Thanks

This is on the RemoteRig web page http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=28 and
http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=3376

One is used for PTT and the other for a CW paddle.

Thanks for information.

" Any standard mic and speaker/headset that can be connected to the PC and has Windows support can be used for the audio.The RRC-Micro dongle has no built in support for audio any more (as version 1274A had)."

I expected that AUX connector was for audio in and out, not for CW.
I will try other solution to operate FT8.

These were used for audio in the first version, but no one apparently used it for this purpose and it
made more sense to change these in the newer version.

I do not understand what you mean by try another solution for FT8. All you need to do is to assign
the sound card in your PC to both the RRC Micro client and WJST and you can do FT8. Just make sure
that Windows and other sounds are turned off.

Hello Mitch
I'm sorry but I can not understand you.
RRC-micro uses the sound card of the PC to play audio through the speaker output and receive audio through the microphone input.
The audio input and output FT-8 are opposite. If I assign the same souncard for both programs, FT-8 does not work. TX audio goes to the speaker (not the mic input in RRC-micro) and there is no audio in RX.
As far as I know, to perform an internal cross link it is necessary to install a virtual audio cable software or similar.

Thank you very much for your support and apologize for my lack of knowledge.

Not correct, Iņigo,

The PC sound card has a microphone and speaker part that are completely separate. This is absolutely
identical to the sound card that was in the old dongle. There is no problem using this, assuming you
turn off Windows sounds. That is why they took out the sound card, because it isn't needed.
