Keying the TX using a Remote Headset/mic/Switch in the upcoming v1.4?
Aside from VOX or click-and-hold, what options do you imagine for keying the TX using a PC-connected remote headset/mic or switch in the upcoming v1.4?
What, if any, manufacturers will offer a "complete" headset solution for Flex 6000 series users who do not want to use VOX or click on the screen to TX during remote operation from a PC?
Will v1.4 have a provision for such a hand/foot-switch hardware solution? (or is it already there and I'm too dimwitted to notice the solution in front of me!) Maybe Flex will be offering a hand/foot switch? [Now, I'm wondering, does the FlexControl already map one of the buttons to Xmit?]
As I lie dreaming at night of features Santa and his elves (please, let's not forget the elves!) are putting into v1.4, these questions ensued. I need to stop eating before I go to bed.

Bill N3HQB Member ✭✭Headsets and handsets for Apple iOS and Mac devices with the familiar 3.5mm, 3-sleeve section plug have a pause button that could be programmed to provide a convenient PTT function.0
Ian1 Member ✭✭Perhaps for remote use with a headset they can incorporate the Space Bar for keying the radio to transmit.
Dale KB5VE Member ✭✭I bought a wireless remote receiver with two fobs. looks like a remote car door lock . added 12 volts and I now can ley my radio from anywhere in the house. using mt JABA wireless head set I can being my flex up on my 55 inch tv and operate. the ptt device only cost 18.00 but the batteries in it are a little expense. I keep one fob hanging from my pr40 wjhen I want to use ptt instaed of vox.0
Tim - W4TME Administrator, FlexRadio Employee adminSmartSDR v1.4 is not slated to have a hardware method for keying the radio via the remote PC. You will have to use VOX or click MOX on the GUI. This capability may be included in a future version of SmartSDR.
On a remote laptop can we use Bluetooth to the laptop? Or would possible latency be an issue? Just wondering if you experimented with this.
KY6LA_Howard Member ✭✭✭While not necessarily applicable to 1.4', I have been using a Bluetooth headset for my iPad remote operations with SSDR. No latency issues.1
Great glad to hear that. I have ideas of the laptop out and about sending pictures while remote via HF someday. Bluetooth would help have hands free a little bit.
Good day to you Howard!
Asher - K0AU Member ✭✭Just noticed Tim's post, and my enthusiasm for V1.4 LAN Remote is dropping. At best we're talking about a LAN-Remote-Audio-proof-of-concept feature in 1.4. I still need my RemoteRig for PTT and for CW paddle support. I'll give it a try, but I can't predict if CW sidetone latency will make keying feasible using remote audio. If I plug my headset into a computer USB adapter then I lose the PTT connection I have through the RemoteRig. At least the foot pedal going through a separate port will still work. Kind of makes me want a FlexControl with CW paddle support AND a headphone/mic/ptt jack AND locally generated CW sidetone. Guess I have to look at the FlexLib API after all.
