    using it on SDR, Check Vox and it is off. Last 2 times I saw that the Mox light on, That is next to the tune. All I had to do was click it and it unkeyed.  Of course that is where you key it. The red light will be on too where power button is. Am using a Heil mike and it is hard wire with a push button, and it will not be key thru it.

    In addition, are there any third party software programs (logging, ddutil, etc), connected?

    I wonder if it will stop happening if you use the hand mic that came with the radio? Just a test.

    Have ddutil. It is only use to get auto band switching and to control power to the PW-1 when on. Also have N3FJP logging. Last time it did it the PW-1 was off, but the logging is on.

    I would have to try that. but the mike is hard wire, so you have to push the button to key it and it is the mike Flex sales. Will double check the connected on the button too make sure there is no short, and there is not.

    There have been a number of cases of strange things being reported with apparently no action on the operators part - many cases ended up being auxiliary control programs doing something unexpected. If that turns out to be the cause, you can isolate the problem tool by removing tools in turn. Look for any changes you made prior to the unexpected TX problem starting.
