Re: v2.5 bug with KX-3 #Cat_RigControl #Elecraft

Bill,

I set the radio to DATA A mode using the radio controls and verified that both VFO's were in fact set to DATA A. 

Then, tuned to an arbitrary frequency on 15M.  
Put the radio into CW mode.  
Pressed A>B so that both VFOs were on the same frequency, same mode (CW).
Pressed SPLIT.
Tuned VFO B to an arbitrary frequency a couple KHz away.
Verified that both VFOs were indeed operating SPLIT and in CW mode.

Started WSJT-X v2.5
Set "Preferences->Radio->Mode->Data/Pkt" checked.
Selected from pull-down frequency selection 21.074 000 MHz (15M)

Pressed Tune.  
The transmitter keyed.  
The KX-3 display said: "SPLIT N/A" for a second or two.  The "SPLIT" indicator in the display never turned on.
The KX-3 put out power that seemed to be controllable in level with the MIC control.

BTW, I can verify again that the RX frequency response rolls off below 400 Hz.  I also tried placing the transmit frequency at 2500 Hz and at 200 Hz.  There seems to be no difference in output power, which suggests that the filter issue may only be on the RX side.

Then, I redid this. 

Tuned to an arbitrary frequency on 15M.  
Put the radio into CW mode.  
Pressed A>B so that both VFOs were on the same frequency, same mode (CW).
Pressed SPLIT.
Tuned VFO B to an arbitrary frequency a couple KHz away.
Verified that both VFOs were indeed operating SPLIT and in CW mode.

Started WSJT-X v2.5
Set "Preferences->Radio->Mode->USB" checked.
Selected from pull-down frequency selection 21.074 000 MHz (15M)

Pressed Tune.  
The transmitter keyed.  
No output power.  The MIC control adjusted the Keyer Speed, which is what that knob does in CW mode.
The mode indicator in the KX-3 display indicated "CW" when in transmit mode.

Pressing A>B put the B VFO and associated functions in USB mode and it worked properly.

That help?
