Anytone 578 Connection

Been reading through the post. I ordered the Digi rig and the Anytone Mobile Audio Cable. But it is not firing my PTT. So is there another step here? Does the serial connection of the Digi come into play?

Barry, please refer to this video:

Thanks that helped a lot. Testing the TIP and Ring showed me it was working. I then followed the instructions using WSJT-X and tested the PTT. All is working as shown. So working in Winlink, I have sent using Packet, no issues. Using VARA-FM I found I needed to turn on the RTS in the VARA settings menu under PTT to COM/COM PORT USED/RTS. All is now working. So far so good. Thank you for your help, appreciate it.

Thank you for the update.
If you don’t mind sharing the relevant configuration screens from the apps you used, that will be much appreciated. Those trying to configuring the same radio will find it very helpful.

Here is my documentation to the best of memory. I did test it again, so should be correct.
