No Tom, the ticket is hereby reopened. In fact, the original question was merely a place-holder to establish a dialog with Flex Support on the matter.
I’m not talking about hardware VOX support. That would be completely useless to me. Too bad Bob Tracy didn’t note in my customer file that disability requires me to do literally everything via software. Even my voice is software generated so I have no use for mics or hardware VOX circuitry. I’m talking about your software, PowerSDR. Doesn’t “SDR” mean software defined radio?
Specifically, PowerSDR already receives audio headed for the radio via a virtual audio cable (VAC). In practice, that’s just a virtual audio device, and my speaking software knows how to redirect my “voice” to any audio device known to the system. All that’s missing is a way for audio to cause PowerSDR to key the transmitter. Simply described in pseudo-code:
Wait for audio on the VAC
While audio on the VAC
Let VAC do its thing
Wait specified delay
As I say, easy. Too easy to not already be in the code. Especially since it would also benefit anyone working the digital modes. HRD’s Digital Master also sends audio to any system audio device. No more need for fragile PTT lash-ups that might be broken by a hard stare.
Understand that my new Flex-1500 is useless to me without VOX. Some of my friends have already offered to make PTT lash-ups for me, but I would rather see Flex do the right thing and correct what I consider to be a glaring shortcoming in PowerSDR.
