IN0 use simultainiously with CW paddle, how?
« on: 2021-02-01, 11:41:16 »
My CW paddle is working OK, via OUT1 and OUT2 on the Radio side.
So OUT0 is left to use.

I want to use it in a transparent way, so OUT0/Radio should follow IN0 input/Control

However, I do not get the Radio OUT0 programmed as I/O. It always reverts to "Connect"

Control side:
IN0      I/O
OUT0   Connect
OUT1   I/O
OUT2   I/O     however the OUT settings here should be irrelevant to what I want to do.

Radio side
OUT0    Connect   (no way to choose I/O)
OUT1    Keyer
OUT2    Keyer

So what am I doing wrong here?

In the mean time I tried :

Control side:
IN0      I/O

Radio side
OUT0    Connect   (no way to choose I/O)
OUT1    I/O
OUT2    Keyer
because RING of PAD is not used for keyer output to the radio when using the internal RRC keyer.

Still no output at OUT1 (with LED + series resistor to 8V, pin 7)

How can shine some light on this. I am lost....

Hi

in0 at control side can only be used as straight Key input if Keyer is enabled.

IN your setup out0 and out1 (radio RRC) can only be controlled from the web page in combination with Keyer

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the explanation. Clear, but pity it works this way.

I do not understand this design.
As a user I deliberately want to use a paddle, that is my CW input.
So why "waste" IN0 on a straight key I never intend to use.
That makes no sense to me. (but maybe I am missing something I am not aware of..)

Anyway, I will try other options to control stuff at the Radio side without the need for a PC/webpage.
(unless you already have a solution I can use and build in :-) Please let me know!)

My whole control station is just a K3/0 box (plenty of empty space inside to host/connect all what is needed) with only the WiFi antenna sticking out and I cannot have additional "boxes"/gear
