Elecraft radios config files

Post by yo3ggx » Wed Nov 26, 2014 2:37 pm

Hi,

Please use this thread to post your own config file for any Elecraft radio. This will help the other users. Most popular functions will be added to the default radio config file included in the package.

Thank you,
Dan YO3GGX

KX3 Notes

Got KX3 to work remotely, receive so far, transmit in couple of days.

Selected No-IP for free dynamic DNS. Set it up, pretty easy.
Waiting for TRSS plug to plug into mic jack for transmit audio.
Then should be on air from public hotspot, using Android smart phone.
KX3 will be in shack connected to antenna, along with PC.
Smart phone is Motorola Moto G 3rd generation.
PC is Windows 10 box. Using supplied USB/Serial cable from PC USB to ACC1 of KX3
Using normal stereo cable for receive audio from Phone jack of radio to Line In on PC.
Will use cable from Line out of PC to Mic In of KX3. 100K, 10K attenuator in cable.
Use 4800 baud. Anything higher will not control KX3.
Edit doesn't work with Motro G, Android 5.1.1. Edit works with Asus tablet, 4.2.2

:) Got plug today. Wired it up with 33K resistor in series with tip lead, and 10K from tip to ground at radio side. Works good.

Hi Don,

Thank you very much for your contribution to the forum. Hope this helps other K3/KX3 users to junp and try Pocket RxTx.
Any other feedback is welcome.

Best regards,

Here's my K3s file. I just added a bandwidth selection, 2.7 and 2.4KHz and on F2 a TUNE function. I have already set the Tune level on my radio to 15 watts. (I was unable to attach the file) I'm certain more additions will happen as I play with this. Note that I have delineated my additions.

Hi Gary,

Can I add your config to the central repository using your Name/callsign?

Thank you.

Dan -

Here is a revised version. OK to put in your repository. Audio input is set to Line, Normal Shift is selected. I also changed the label on the Tune button to "1/0", i.e. on/off toggle. Note this file does not work on the experimental 0.9xx yet.

-------------------
What do you mean by that? What is not working in version 0.9.x?
Usually the files are compatible between 0.8x and 0.9.x versions, even if some functions work only in version 0.9.x.
All 0.8.x configs must be compatible with version 0.9.x

Thank you.

Dan -

We've discussed this...that on 0.9x it goes into Tune on power-up. Per your comments..then the Startup commands don't get executed. Version 0.8x is fine with this file.

I hope to publish an updated version later today that solves the TUNE at startup issue. As a workaround you can assign TUNE command to the "SQL" button (lower left part of the tuning knob). This one does not trigger an update at startup because it can be used only for single state commands, as no label available to display current status.

The SQL button command is assigned similar with the other option buttons:
BTN_SQL_NOFN=...
BTN_SQL_FN=...
BTN_SQL_FN2=...
BTN_SQL_FN3=...
