Author Topic: Using VOX remotely with Skype  (Read 15050 times)

I run remotely to my K3 using Skype for audio.  If I have the radio volume up fairly high, it is very difficult to go to transmit via VOX.  But if I turn down the K3 receive audio level, VOX works fine.  Looking at Skype audio settings (auto adjust is off), the mic level at my end (client) drops as receiver (speaker) volume goes up.  It appears that Skype is not duplex.

Any suggestions on alternative to Skype that IS duplex?

I may have my wires crossed but I think you can do duplex with two instances of Skype at the same time. I can't seem to find the article but I think I did it once several years ago...required four separate Skype accounts.

Are you trying to use a smartphone or PC?

Sorry for the belated response to last question.  I am using a PC and/or laptop, both running Win7.

The three K4VV Remote Contesting Positions all use Skype and they all use VOX successfully.  The critical adjustments are and ANTI-VOX control and the level of audio being fed out of the receiver into Skype.  Also, you need to run the VOX sensitivity a bit higher than you would normally with a direct mike hookup.
