Maestro PTT on Mic 2 not working?

I bought a used Maestro, and just wired up a W2EHY electret desk mic to it using a 3-conductor 3.5mm plug.

I turned the BIAS switch on and the TX audio is fine, but the PTT doesn't work. The PTT switch is connected to the "ring" of the plug and tests fine with a meter, but when plugged in the switch won't key the rig.

Is there anything I should check, or does it sound like PTT on the Maestro Mic 2 connector may be broken?

    The Mic 2 PTT is controlled by software.  

    Check the Menu setting under TX.

    Thanks, Mike. I stared right at that screen and missed it.
    I'll boot the Maestro up when I go back upstairs and try it out.
