Not able to transmit when switching from Panadapter A to B

  • Updated 9 months ago
Setup: Flex 6700, Smart SDR v2.4.9, Win 10, One antenna attached to the 6700.

Scenario:
Panadapter A is set to any portion of the 40M band for CW and transmits fine.
Panadapter B is set to a local 6M repeater for monitoring.
When switching from panadapter A to B by clicking on the TX button in the panadapter B window, the 6700 will not transmit. Both panadapters are set to the same antenna. I am able to transmit on 6M when panadapter A is tuned to the 6M repeater. Also have checked power levels for both panadapters to make sure they are not set for zero power. The TX button turns red in panadapter B, the radio "clicks" but to no RF out when trying to transmit on an alternate band in panadapter B. I can hear the repeater identify in panadapter B.

Maybe a better question is how do you switch the transmitter from panadapter A to another panadapter if clicking on the TX button in the alternate panadapter window does not allow the user to transmit. 

I had hoped to be able to respond to a call on a local 6M repeater while working CW on some of the HF bands.

Hi Rich

Can you post a screen shot of when Slice B is active and both in RX and TX.  

When you go into on TX on 6M, so the Transmitter do the 1Mhz offset?

Yes, I have the correct PL tone and the correct offset. When I tune the local 6M repeater in panadapter A everything is great and the radio transmits and receives perfectly. But if configured as per the screenshot I can receive an HF band as per panadapater A and also receive on panadapter B simultaneously just not able to transmit on panadapter B.

Can you post a shot of slice B in TX?  What is the repeater frequency?  Has it worked before?

Here is a screenshot in transmit. Yes but I cannot figure out how to make slice B transmit on a consistent basis. I must have something set up wrong.

I can’t see the screens very clearly but it looks like you are set in CW on 6 meters

Hi Rich

This looks like a Bug as I have an issue in 2.4.9 where I can't get the repeater offset to work, but I can get REV to work.  

I am converting this to a support case for you.

Mike, Thank you. Radio overall is awesome! Just want to be able to monitor the local 6M repeater while working CW on HF bands hoping to make a single click and  then talk with the local hams on the 6M repeater.

I had a similar  problem with 6600 and 6300. Running  FT8 2.0 in A slice and  HF in  B. after using 6m and going to B HF it would not xmit  in B slice even when reloading profile. Importing old data from  desktop  solved the  problem in  both rigs. Me thinks there is a bug . gl paul, wa3qpx
