Hall of fame
Please add an option for PTT via RTS and DTR lines on COM port.
After V2.6 is out I will queue this for the upcoming version.
Are you willing to be a beta tester for this feature ? I don't have a way to simulate so I'll have to code blind and send you a tool to test.
are you up to the challenge @avishay.4x1zq ?
Sure, just send me the tool and I will try it.
First, I want to express my gratitude for this amazing software. As the owner, like many others, of a not-so-fancy radio, I kindly request a PTT VOX option. For those of us who use Signalink, Digimode-3, etc. it will be a much appreciated option.
Hi @Antoine NP3AD . what do you mean by PTT VOX ? isn't it a given fact that all transceivers out there provide with VOX based PTT ? I believe I did not understand your ask.
Thanks for your prompt response. It my fault... I didn't notice that I wasn't using the lates version of Vara HF or Vara FM. It is working now without CAT control.

@avishay.4x1zq @Antoine NP3AD
Done. Will be out in V3.
See attached SCreenshot.
Avishay, thank you for being a tester for the DTR/RTS feature :)
Hi Irad, I have tested the RTS/DTR and works great, but I think it could be more useful if it could be selected as PTT option without disabling Omnirig CAT. In other words OmniRig should be active for CAT if the rig can be remotely controlled, but at the same time user could choose between PTT with CAT command or PTT with another method (RTS/DTR) and using the same COM port for both CAT (frequency) and PTT (RTS/DTR) or two different COM ports, e.g COM1: CAT Omnirig, COM2: RTS ptt.

PSE add HEX String to the CAT PTT, you already have TXT Strig
Thanks. will add to the list
For the popular IC7300 they are:
PTT ON Hex String : FEFE94E01C0001FD
PTT OFF Hex String; FEFE94E01C0000FD
Hi, this is my configuration on WSJT-X with FT-847 and SCU-17, so i need two com, one for data and other for PTT. I'v fund many other people with same problem on fq and unfortunally omni-rig dont solve.
Thanks for y
