Setting up an external winkeyer creates a com port. In DM780 open CW (Winkey) and put in the new com port number. Click connect and that's it.
There are are a lot of settings for your favourite cw mode. Don't forget to click off iambic mode in SSDR.
With version 1.6 there is no need for an external winkeyer anymore, as it is now possible to create a winkeyer port with SmartCat and connect DM780 directly.

My pleasure ;-)
Testing the SmartSDR CAT Winkeyer port I found some hiccups from time to time but
this seems to be a DM780 Winkeyer problem.
