Ethernet Interlock: Description of ANT Interlock

dk2ro Member
we are trying to implement a hot switch protection for our remote controlled antenna switch.

The the SmartSDR Ethernet API allows to install a software based interlock system.
I can create an interlock with: "interlock create type=ANT name=AntennaSwitch serial=73001"

But I have difficulty to understand the Description: "ANT External antenna controller - interlock state always controlled by external device"

I can make the interlock ready with "interlock ready"
But how to get the interlock back to not_ready state?

For the AMP type interrupt it is clearly stated "interlock assumes a return to not_ready state after each PTT"
But how is the ANT type interrupt handled?
Is there a "interlock not_ready" command?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
