I have released version 2 of my SDR Voice Keyer for the Mac today.
https://w6op.com



Version 2 has a slightly different layout and the larger buttons will allow you to label each one. There is also an ID timer that will light an indicator when the time has expired and has a dedicated button and audio file for sending your ID.

hi pete
nice app...

i did notice if 'no radio" is available to select the 'select radio' panel does not go away
and
then unable to get back to main vxkeyer control panel...

only way out is to quit and restart the app.

Also the manual is a .pages format..and that is fine ok for most mac user BUT a .pdf version would be nice

nonetheless...still a nice and needed app

keep of the great work

right now, i am in the process of creating some voice files to test it with my 6600M

Thanks! I'll fix that shortly.

I can do a pdf file instead of pages. The same info is also on the web page.

hi pete

tried it on the following setup

Mac min-i7 running highsierra 10.13.6
and
Flex 6600m running ssdr (2.4.9) native on its main display

DAX is selected on p/cw panel on 6600m (sri no pics)

created .wav files using audacity
and
linked the wav files to sdrvoicekeyer via preference panel

as you can see...voicekeyer does seem to connect to the 6600M
as it show the TX slice and mode and freq and shows it is connected








as you can see it connected to the radio...
but
when i click on any of the buttons of voicekeyer
nothing seems to happen

radio does not go into transmit and no modulation via DAX

would be glad to work offline with you to resolve this

Yes, 24khz or a multiple such as 48 or 96. Though I should show an error if it isn’t.

Paul, send me one of your files too.

Thanks,

hi pete

well after all your help offline .... I T   W O R K S

i had to cleanup my .wav files...that was the key

MONO mode..... NOT stereo...
and
24000 sample rate


i now have it running nicely with a Mac Mini i7 with macos 10.13.6
and
flex 6600M

Pete deserves an "Atta-BoY" from me....

Nice all around...

I had a feeling it was a wave file issue. I found that out trial and error, then reading the setup instructions lol ..

The next version will support stereo files. Also, if anyone has the buttons changing size with long labels that will be fixed too.
