CW Keying and the I/O connector -- strange!
« on: 2015-03-21, 18:18:01 »
Lots of documentation on using Pings 4 and 8 of the IO connector for CW.

I've tried two old RJ45 cables...  Pin 8, Ground, is brown, and Pin 4, the key line, is Blue.

Anyway, when I connect the two, nothing happens.

I am running a standard RRC box set for a K3, and the Remote is a K3.  I have set my own jumpers.  Everything works wonderfully, other than this.

Could a jumper be set wrong?  THe CW Paddle input, as well as the dot/dash pins on the I/O port, work fine.

Frustrated!

Gerry, did you change IN0 mode to  keyer as on page 95 of the manual?

The important pages are pages 94-95 and appendix B.
