I have it receiving  but can't get it to transmit. I don't seem to be getting the audio from
the program over to the Flex 5000. If I turn on the VOX on the Flex it goes off when I
push the VARC button to receive rtty.
I must have something not right somewhere since I can't transmit the audio from
the MMVARI program.

Receives great so Im almost there:)

It should work just like other digital mode software .  Do you have other digital mode software where the PTT is working and audio tones are transmitted by the Flex ?  Also, make sure the VAC icon in PowerSDR is active.

See this video I just made.  Make sure the PTT check box is checked in the Radio Command area.

There is audio, from the Flex.  What do you mean you have only ONE comm port ?  For an application like digital mode software to activate your PowerSDR software and switch the Flex in to TX mode when you press TRANSMIT (e.g. in MMVARI) , you need ONE port for PowerSDR and another port for the digital mode software.  Most people use virtual serial port software where you can "pair" the two ports.

Yes looks like I need to the VSPM program. I have it here from K5FR he sent me.
That I guess is the control program to control the ports.
Will have to learn how to use it:)

I have it working and yes I have the VSPM program to control the PTT line now.
The Flex5000 is working great now for Digital modes. MMVARI is a great progam
and have used it in the past on a TS2000. Its easy to use with its mem buffers.
