All of us Signalink Interface users, we are definitely missing the VOX PTT option. Not all rigs are CAT controlled by USB. I understand that todays generation is born with an USB plug on their belly, but for lots of rigs, there is a Signalink sound interface which does the PTT, and even as good as USB. Thanks in andvance!

That is strange, Irad since I downloaded VarAC just two days ago on the 29. December 2021 from this page, and the current version at that time (2 days ago) has been 2.7.2 without that third PTT-option (VOX). What happened?
See image below:
Thanks for updating your download link ;-)
Hi all. always look under : "in development" before posting 😀😀😀https://www.varac-hamradio.com/forum/in-development/adding-vox-option-in-ptt
Thanks and looking forward! 😀
Not familiar with that version of the signalink, but I can tell you the next version on VarAC it will have a VOX PTT only selection.
Currently if your radio does not need to be controlled then you do not need OmniRig but VarAC requires you select one, I selected OmniRig but did not even setup a radio. The Signalink setup with your pc should I think work the same as other Tigertronics products. Setup VarAC to start your VARA HF software, then setup VARA HF to use your Signalink as the sound device, if you using the mic jack on your rig then VOX should trigger your Signalink to key your rig.
How does your Signalink connect to your computer?
I have a rig which does not have a USB port. My Signalink does not have an USB port either. So, what is your recommendation to all the non-USB folks, as they can not PTT their rig via USB but just by VOX?
VarAC is asking for a PTT option. There are only two mandatory options: PTT over CAT (USB). and PTT over OmniRig (also USB). No other PTT option available, neither 'None' is not available. That's where the VOX PTT would (and should) kick-in IMHO.
If your using a Signalink setup for VOX PTT then the VARA HF modem will handle that for you.
