k3 and RTTY hookup question

km5ps
I have my k3 running well with N1MM and MMTTY thru com1, but frequency
will not track because mmtty uses com 1 for control of rig.  What is the
best way to have the K3 track the  frequency and mmtty control of the
k3?  Is it to use the 15 pin plug on the back of the rig?  Not really a
big deal unless you are in S&P mode and click on a multiplier from list
and rig does not go to the frequency, just would be nice though.

TIA
John

You should let N1MM Logger do rig control. Assuming you have a serial
cable between COM1 and your K3's RS232 jack, set the "Radio command"
port in MMTTY to NONE and configure N1MM Logger to use COM1 to control
your K3. That way the frequencies will be tracked in the N1MM Logger
contest log.

If you are using AFSK, you should also let N1MM Logger control TX/RX
switching (PTT). That is, you should set MMTTY's FSK/PTT port to NONE
and configure a PTT method within the N1MM Logger Configurer. See the
N1MM Logger documentation for details.

If you want to use FSK from MMTTY, you must use separate COM ports for
radio control and FSK keying. The only way MMTTY can key FSK is using a
separate port connected to the K3's ACC connector through a keying circuit.
