Hi, has anybody succeeded in connecting via an UMTS stick? Connecting (through an X-cable) the Panel-RRC to the Ethernet connector of a notebook which is using a plugged in UMTS (HSPA) stick? Unsuccessful here. Very good 3G quality at the test location. LAN card of notebook set to, RRC set to Windows-Firewall switched off. After switching on the RRC, continuous LED at RRC after a few seconds. When trying to switch on the TS-480 there is the typical short beep after 2-3 seconds. But the TS-480 does not switch on! HSPA constant data exchange afterwards, 2 kbps upload, 129 kbps download. After switching off the RRC the data exchange stays at 129 kbs up and down! Any idea what the problem is?

Mike, your last statement is rather disappointing: "But since lot of people using the existing modes we can not change them. If we make modifications of the behaviour we need to make new modes." The Remoterig internal keyer is a very good feature but you are forcing people like me to use an external keyer.

The fact is that you don’t need new modes, just improve e.g. A2. At present I cannot find any difference between modes “old type”, A1 and A2. Here is my detailed analysis:

wanted letter     E       N

output with:
old type      E   T
A1      E   T
A2      E   T
B      I   N

To explain:
With mode B we can store a dot when touching the dot paddle during the transmission of a dash. This is a good feature of mode B. If we don’t have this, a T would be transmitted instead of an N.
For some reason the dot memory is also active during the transmission of a dot (or maybe during the space right after the dot. So there will be an additional unwanted dot (I instead of E)! No CW operator would want this.

I understand Microbit is very busy but let me ask you: Don’t give up on that one! We don’t need it next week, but please give us hope on it.

Tnx, 73

Hi Andy,

have you set IO Settings / IN0 mode = Keyer?

I use internal keyer with paddle PAD input, and external keyer on 4/8 of the RJ45 connector.

hi ,

Thank you for the new features in firmware 2.30.
“New CW-keyer mode = Iambic A2, for you who have had problem with the old A and B, pse try”

Here is my comment about the CW-keyer performance:
Mode A2: Sorry still too many Dots (or dits): Transmitting DE puts out DI. We don’t need a dot memory during the transmission of a dot and the subsequent pause. There seems to be no Dash-Dot-memory, transmitting a K in the usual way puts out a M. I am not using squeeze keying but single lever. I have compared to K1EL winkey which is just perfect.

Yes, Can Microbit please look into this problem? There have been 5 change requests about that in the Forum, subject "CW Keying", on Aug 10th till Aug 23rd. I would like to use mode B with less unwanted dots generated. Thank you,73

Indeed the keyer is a little slippery in B mode. When you stay on the dot paddle during the complete length of a dot another dot will be generated. Is that a bug or a feature? I would like that to be corrected, for the time being I have to use mode A.
