locked Re: #Transmit #K4 - Split Operation -> DATA-R Mode on Elecraft K4 #transmit #Elecraft

Experimental 2.5.0 solved my K4 problem but it timed out on August 31. The current release is 2.4.0 so I'm back to square 1. Is there a way to extend the lifetime of the experimental release or will the K4 fix be incorporated into a production release some time soon?

Yes, on W9MDB's recommendation I tried V. 2.5.0 and it fixed the problem. "Split Operation | Rig" works fine on K4 now. Thanks!
