Just got Digirig and hooked it up to the TS-440s. Followed the Getting Started guide and have receive working just fine. PTT does not work, though it does not give an error. Just doesn’t key the rig. I was able to press down the mic button when starting an FT8 session and was able to work the other station provided I manually keyed the mic each time it was my Tx session. Audio was being provided by Digirig and I logged a QSO. Just not too efficient.
From the posts I’ve read here, it seems that the cable I ordered doesn’t actually work with the TS-440s for PTT. So two questions:
If I rewire the cable using a new 13-pin connector and wire PTT to pin 13, does that work for those of you with the 440? (Wish I had known about that before ordering a $29 cable).
If I order the IC-10 kit for the 440s, will CAT work with the Digirig and accomplish the desired setup (meaning it works as it should)? I might rather go this route than rewiring the cable.
Thanks for your help.
