CW on SSB modes

  • Under Consideration

With the recent sporadic E openings on 6 meters, I find I miss a feature I had on my K3 which is the ability to transmit CW while in USB mode.  Currently, with the 6700, I have to change the mode to CW and drag the frequency up 600 Hz (or use XIT).  By then it is often too late to make the contact due to the fast QSB on 6 meters and certainly destroys the fluidity of mixing CW and SSB as needed in a QSO.   On the K3 while in USB mode (with CW on SSB enabled) I just have to start keying and the tone is put at the correct CW pitch for those listening in SSB mode.  Is this being considered for the 6000 series?

We have this feature request in the database for possible inclusion in a future version of SmartSDR.

Hi Bob. I'm still new at this so each day is a learning experience. I found the big "LIKE" button at the top and gave it a hearty 'click'.    Hope this helps. 73, Jim

That did it.  I hope it helps too.  I really enjoy the Flex 6700, but miss not having this feature.

This was requested 3 year ago, where are we at with this today? Any chance of seeing this before V2.0?

All that was asked for was something that is standard on many other radios! I have it on my TS-590S and on my new FT-991A but not on my most $$$ rig - Flex 6500.  :-(

It is marked as under consideration so any new post are not even easily seen.  That feature is right up there on the top of my want list with dax and vox working together.  I doubt if we will ever see frs implement.  Maybe in v3. or v4.  but by  then you will also need new hardware..

This request is getting old. Are we any closer to the top of the list?

All we are asking for is a feature that is standard in radios like the TS-590 FTD-3000 & FT-991A... etc.

And.. Yes I know it can be done using 2 slices but awkward & not readily available to use..

Again, just to make sure this is clear:  We are not talking about changing over from SSB to CW and back, even with the correct shifts as in Steve's IC-7400.  This proposal is CW simultaneously with SSB.  No switching.  No additional slices.  Press PTT and get the mike.  Operate the key and get CW at the proper pitch so that those listening on SSB can hear it.  Or do both together.  Very fluid and great for working in strong and fast QSB as is experienced on 6 meters and above.
