Controlling an External Modem
WinWarbler can decode and generate CW, RTTY, and other digital modes via an External Modem connected to a serial port. WinWarbler interacts with a connected External Modem by sending it individual commands, e.g. Initialize or begin transmitting or switch to RTTY. The individual commands required for a particular model of External Modem are obtained from an External Modem Command File. WinWarbler includes External Modem Command Files for the KAM 98, MFJ 464, PK232, PK900, and PTC-IIe; you can [http://www.dxlabsuite.com/winwarbler/Help/RTTYModemCommandFiles.htm create an External Modem Control File] for other devices.
To control an External Modem, you will need
- an RS-232 cable connecting a serial port on your PC with the External Modem's serial port
- an audio cable connecting your transceiver's audio output to your External Modem's audio input
- an audio cable connecting your External Modem's audio output to your transceiver's audio input
- a wire connecting your External Modem's PTT output to your transceiver's PTT input
- to transmit RTTY in FSK, a wire connecting your External Modem's RTTY output to your transceiver's RTTY input
- to transmit CW, a wire connecting your External modem's CW output with your transceiver's CW input
All of the above connections should be described in detail in your External Modem's user guide.
