RCFORBClient 0.9.132 CW Keying Issues
« on: October 22, 2016, 09:53:21 am »
Hi,

I tried the direct CW keying on this new client SW version on my Lenovo Laptop, W10 Home, T9400, 2.5GHz, 3GB RAM using a USB FTDI chip, driver 2.12.16.0, 09.03.16 on my remote DL0JV Remote, which I administer using a TS-480 with Server version 0.7.6104, 32 bit running on a Sony Laptop with W7 professional

I have not been able to get the dahs working, whatever I tried. The dahs are sent as continuous tone.

Change of lambic keyer mode does not make a difference.

The client SW is configured as:
dits are configured for DSR
dahs are configured for CTS
RTS is used as power


This configuration is propely working in the same set-up on Client SW version 0.8.6104, except that for this version there is also the possibility to enable PAD detection, which is done.

Any thoughts?

Currently, the CTS pin is sort of "hard wired" for "KEY" purposes.
This is why you have the effect you describe.

There is information on a temporary work-around by editing the Windows Registry.

There is a new version that fixes this issue  0.9.144  and you should be able to download it.

I am now using Version 0.9.218 Build 33474 which works just perfect for CW using an external paddle. The performance and latency is very good. The RTT to my prefered remote is around 40ms. I am using VOX Operation on the remote end.
