Ok, so the interface use both RTS and DTR to operate the PTT? I saw
such a solution somewhere and the reason for doing like that was that
one pin was not enough to drive the PTT circuit (opto coupler) on some
So I guess the reason for the constant TX when SvxLink is started is
that DTR is automatically set when the serial port is opened. If the RTS
pin have enough drive current for your interface, Richards tip should
I'll try to fix this problem in the next release so that one can write
something like this in the config file:
and maybe also:
for reverse polarity.
What does the configuration in the windows EchoLink software say? Is
both pins explicitly configured to be used as PTT?
