Anyone using the K3S and FSQcall. I can get the audiocodecs to load from the K3S to FSQcall but can't get the rig to key up and transmit. I checked the CAT file and set it to correct com port and baud rate but no joy. Any suggestions?
Found a work around. Set the FSQcall program to PTT. Enable Vox on the K3S and set vox gain to 25. I still get the "no com port available or in use" message but the rig will key up and send. If anyone still knows how to get the K3S to key with FSQcall through the cat line, I would like to know.
Quite some time ago I did some tests using FSQCALL v0.24.6 and my K3 TRX.
I used the "Use CAT commands from file" option. In a text file, you have to define the relevant COM port and CAT parameters. See the help text for details.
It should not be necessary to use the "Use CAT commands from file"
option. Set PTT/CAT to "01,Kenwood (newer models)" and check the
"Use PTT" radio button. Set the Comport to the port created by the
Set the Soundcard (Select Soundcard) to "Line (USB Audio CODEC)" or
"mic (USB Audio CODEC)" depending on the way the K3S identifies in
your operating system for Input and "Speakers (USB Audio CODEC)" for
In the K3S make sure to set CONFIG:PTT-Key to rts-OFF to allow the
RTS line of the USB port to be used for PTT by the K3S.
Set the K3S to DATA A mode, set MENU:MIC SEL to LINE IN and adjust
the K3 Mic Gain along with the Windows gain for FSQCALL for four
bars of ALC with the fifth flickering.
In general, these configuration options are the same as one would
use for PSK31, JT65, JT9 or any other audio based data mode.
Note: there may be a problem with FSQcall and COM port numbers greater
than 8. I have not made it work with higher port numbers but it works
properly with COM 1 - COM 8.
