I don't know if someone is experiencing the same problem,
while in CW mode the vox is activated
Is it an error already detected?
setup Flex 6500 - V. 2.6.1

    I queried this last month, nobody acknowledged it though. I reckon it’s a proper bug. To work around, go into DIGU or DIGL and switch off VOX it’ll then hold when you go back to CW.

    OK my friend
    but in my case it is not possible to distil the vox
    Even if I'm in CW and picks up some sound the mic activates the TX
    does not send sound but cuts reception

    That's why I think it's a problem to solve

    Quería consultar nuevamente a los medios de comunicación.
    Si este es un problema ya detectado o tiene que tener un ticket?
    Puede que tenga que restaurar mi equipo desde cero,
    la verdad de que la voz está activada mientras uno está haciendo cw es muy molesto

    I have exactly the same problem. And the problem is when in CW mode the VOX indicator the "faded blue"; not "gray". if there is any noise in the shack that would trigger the VOX (if in SSB mode), it disrupts any received signal. So if you are listening to CW and cough or otherwise make a noise, you lose parts of the CW signal -- making it impossible to copy.

    I have tried resetting the radio (Flex6700) which is running Version but nothing seems to work. The only way I can stop this is to physically disconnect the microphone while working CW.

    @Javi LU5FF you should upgrade to SmartSDR v2.6.2. The version of SmartSDR you are using has some issues fixed in v2.6.2 that will improve the stability of your radio.

    You may need to reset the persistence database to prevent this radio state from being recalled using the HelpDesk article How to Reset the Persistence Database for a FLEX-6000
