Plug n Play and FT-897D Help

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm using the West Mountain Plug n play and MRP40 for my CW to send and receive. I'm having trouble getting my cw out on my FT-897D radio. Is there something that I need to do thru the program on the FT-897D or what? It's hook up to the radio and it receives the code and prints it out on the computer screen. I have tried and tried to get it to work. When I send out my message in CW, I hear it thru the computer speakers but the radio just makes a loud blairing noise.

Thanks & 73's

Lamar,

I don't have your interface.  So, I can't speak from experience.

But, I'll give it a try.

How are you keying the radio?  Are you using the CW keying cable (stereo shielded cable with 1/8" plugs) between the rigblaster and the key jack on the FT-897D.  Is the radio's built in electronic keyer disabled so the jack functions like a straight key jack?  Is the correct COM port configured in the software?  Is the software configured to use DTR?

Also make sure the radio is in CW mode, and your software supports hard keying CW. For example, FLDIGI uses audio tones on the data port, and you put the radio in USB/LSB/DIGI mode.
