RTTY with Ten Tec Orion II and RemoteRig
« on: 2011-02-14, 20:39:47 »
I have RemoteRig to send and receive audio and CW from my Ten Tec Orion II that will soon be operated by remote using a 1.5 MBPS wireless LAN.  The radio will be controlled by a computer at the remote location over the WLAN using N4PY client/server software, so I will have the serial port and  TTL ports unused.  I want to be able to send FSK keying to the Orion using RemoteRig.  What is the best way to do this?  My current settings are:

IN0 Mode = Keyer
OUT0 Mode = I/O
OUT1 Mode = I/O
OUT2 Mode = I/O
USB RTS as PTT = NO
USB DTR as PTT = NO

I currently use a parallel port through a transistor to directly key the FSK input on the Orion.  Can I directly connect to pin 4 the RRC-Control I/O port then key the radio with pin 5 of the RRC-Radio I/O port?  Will the keying timing be accurate enough for FSK?

Thanks,
Ron N6IE
