Setting up JT56 using Signalink USB

Postby VK4WDM » Fri Jan 25, 2013 9:22 am

Hello Everyone

I am having trouble getting JT65 to transmit using a Signalink USB.

On the JT65 rig control/ptt screen it says:

"Enter COMM port" Does a USB device such as the Signalink use a COMM port? If so, how do I find out the number of the port? I can't see it in device manager.

The other option is: use alternative PTT method. Checking this box does not seem to work either.

The annoying thing is I got it to transmit ok when playing around last night, but don't know how it did it :oops: But when I switched on this morning it is not working :cry:

Please reply in language to suit an IT-challenged, semi-geriatric.

Got it sorted. You have to use "alternative PTT method" and make sure the changes have been saved. :D

Now all I have to do is get someody to hear my 2.5W :mrgreen:

Wayne, I work JT65 on all bands. If I decode you anywhere, I'll give you a call.
