Radios that Support CWByCAT and SpeedSync

Tom Schaefer edited this page Jan 16, 2018 · 13 revisions

TR4W now supports sending CW via the same CAT interface used to keep track of the radio frequency and mode. However, not all radios support sending CW via the CAT interface. Below is a table of radios that support the feature.

Another feature in TR4W is the ability to keep the CW speed of the radio's electronic keyer in sync with the speed of the program. This would be particularly useful if one was using a serial or parallel CW interface (or via RTS on the serial port on Elecraft radios). Without this feature, when the program is sending CW, but the user wants to use a paddle to send a fill from the radio's keyer, this keeps them at the same speed. In the WinKeyer case, one would just connect the paddle to the WinKeyer so they are both in sync.

Please note this table is still being updated as of 2016-03-19. The absence of a radio does not yet mean it doesn't support the feature.
