KX3 rig control using fldigi

Michael Rudolph
I am a new user of the KX3.  I connected the KX3's usb port directly to my
computer's usb, and also connected the KX3's mic and phone ports to a
SignaLink-USB which, in turn, was connected to a second usb port of my
computer.  My computer has fldigi on it.

 

I am able to receive and transmit psk31 and cw, but the fldigi does not
control the frequency of the KX3.  When I first open fldigi, it's frequency
display reads the same frequency as the KX3, but if I change the frequency
of either the KX3 or fldigi, it does not affect the other.

 

Can anyone tell me if I can control the KX3's frequency with fldigi and, if
so, how?

Re: KX3 rig control using fldigi

Hey Michael,

Yes Fldigi can control the KX3.

In Fldigi go to Configure, Rig Control.
Click on the Hamlib tab
In the Rig: drop down, select Elecraft K3/KX3 (Beta)
then in Device: select the port that is connected to the KX3 (not the signalink)
Make sure the baud rate is set correctly. If you're not sure what it is you can launch the Elecraft utility first and it will auto-detect the baud rate.
Click the 'Initialize' button, and then save and close. Should be good to go.
