TS-480 Keyer
« on: 2011-04-07, 17:14:49 »
I was reading the eHam reviews of the RemoteRig, and came across the one written by
K7CF on January 2, 2011. In his review, he writes:

"I tried CW and you can either use the internal keyer in the ts480sat (DEFAULT) or you can
use the Key input of the built in keyer of the Control black box. I use the internal keyer in the
TS480SAT."

This is at http://www.eham.net/reviews/review/96687

I use the TS-480 as well, but have never seen a way to switch between the two keying methods,
except for accessing the TS-480 internal keyer with software and the RRC keyer with a paddle. Am
I missing something here? K7CF did not respond to my mails to two different addresses.

Hi

You can connect your straight key or PC to input 0 in the Control-RRC then you can simultaneously change between paddle, PC or straight key. I recommend everyone to use this method. Keying the TS-480 directly should only be used on internal LAN where the latency is always the same. Input 0 must be set to "keyer" also.

Hi Mike,

I have suggested that method to several users, but I understood K7CF's statement
as switching specifically between the TS-480 internal keyer and the RRC's keyer. I
was wondering what he was writing about. I think he has confused something.
