Author Topic: radio starts scanning on transmit when digital  (Read 948 times)

I finally have digital operations up and running.  I am Using Stream by IZ8BLY to run PSK31 among other modes.  The operating system I have is Windows NT.  Whenever I go to transmit, I start typing and then look over at the display on my FT100D.  I notice, to my amazement, that my radio has started to scan up the 20 meter band of its own accord.  I really don't know what the heck I'm doing, so I may have set something incorrectly, I don't know.  I have gone up and down 20 meters looking for PSK31 activity and Stream can't (or won't) decode any of the non voice signals I'm hearing, maybe there just hasn't been any activity, I don't know.  I think I have everything hooked up correctly.  The interface I'm using is an MFJ 1275.  If there is any other information you need to help me, I will be glad to provide it

Sounds like you are getting RF into the microprocessor in the rig. Double check all your cables to make sure the are not too long, properly wired, and not running too close to antenna cables. Also, make sure you have a good RF ground on your rig.

I use a Yaesu FT-840, BuxCom interface, dipole antennas, DigiPan software, and an AMD 500 Mhz machine with no problems.
