I'm going to the Remote site tomorrow.  I've been looking at what's available in firmware at the RR Box there, and I don't see any clear way to do this.

My desire is to key the K3 via the rear panel KEY jack connected to the Remote Rig box when I want to use the Remote Station, and to key the K3 via the RTS/DTR lines via N1MM when I am using it locally.  In this manner, I don't have to switch any cables when going from Remote to Local usage.

How can I set up the Remote Rig box to do so?  I think I see how to do it at the Control end, but I want to do it at the Remote end and I don't see the firmware options that will allow me to do so.

There is only one way to key the radio from the radio RRC, it's to connect a cable from the PAD or I/O jack to the straight key input. At the control-RRC you can use several ways, one is the RTS/DTR line as you say.

If you want to use the Radio locally just put a splitter on the straight-key input behind the radio, then you do not have to change cables
