Bon voici mes premiers essais. Pour le Splashtop, c'est simple et c'est facile de prendre à distance sur mon Android un des deux ordinateurs branchés sur Splashtop. Le son fonctionne aussi.

J'ai installé le Win4K3 avec mon KX3 sur un portable Lenovo X-61 (WIN 7, 64 bits)  relié par le câble KXUSB d’Elecraft. Tout fonctionne sauf le son de l’ordinateur. J'ai branché un cable de son sur la sortie du KX3 et à l'entrée de l'ordinateur. J'ai finalement entendu le son à la sortie de l'ordi mais c'est là que ça se complique lorsque je me branche à Splashtop, le son ne fonctionne pas sur mon Android (petit détail car sans son, ça ne sert à rien).

J’ai essayé la même chose sur mon ordinateur de base (WIN 7, 64 bits) et le même problème est apparu.

J’ai parcouru toute la documentation et je n’ai rien encore trouvé?

J'ai écrit à VA2FSQ (TOM) et voici sa réponse.

Bonjour,
Le KXUSB fonctionne uniquement avec les commandes de serial port . Il ne passe pas son. Il faut que tu  connecte la sortie audio sur le KX3 à une entrée audio sur votre ordinateur . Aussie, le sortie de son audio sur votre PC  à l'entrée de la ligne ( ou microphone ) sur le KX3 . Ensuite, vous configurez le son sur Splash top
J'utilise Skype et TeamViewer . Fonctionne avec les tablettes Android aussi . C'est gratuite.

S'il vous plaît recherche pour le raccordement d'un son KX3 à votre ordinateur sur Internet . Je n'ai pas de documentation pour ca. Sur Elecraft il y'a la documentation pour le  KX3-PCKT cables.

73's Tom


Je ne comprends pas pourquoi je dois branché la sortie audio de mon ordi à l'entrée de mon micro. Le cable KXUSB devrait faire l'affaire. J'ai également une sortie RX I/Q que je peux relier au PC que je n'ai pas branché. Ai-je besoin d'un interface de type Signalink pour brancher l'ordi au KX3? Je suis un peu mêlé dans tous ces câblages. Besoin d'aide S.V.P.  :-\

QRZ utilise la vidéo de Jean-François, VA2SS, sur sa présentation du PX3.

Good job JF! ;)

PX3 Beta Firmware Revision
MCU 1.25 , 4-17-2015

* A new fixed-tuning mode keeps the PX3 display constant as the KX3 is tuned. Associated menu entries are "FixTrack" to toggle between fixed-tune and tracking mode and "FixMode" to select the behavior when the VFO cursor reaches the edge of the display. Operation is similar to the P3.
* The knob interface has been improved for smoother operation.
* The AFSK cursor is now on the correct frequency.
* There is no longer a sudden jump in display resolution when adjusting the span below 5 kHz
.

"Hi all,

This afternoon I installed an early version of the PX3 firmware with full keyboard support. Works great with a Logitech K360 wireless keyboard (a real steal at $19). I made a few QSOs in both CW and RTTY mode (FSK-D on the KX3) to check things out.

The PX3 won't work with just any USB keyboard. For example, those that include other built-in USB devices such as trackpads will not work with this implementation. So I strongly recommend not purchasing one until we provide a list of those we've tested.

There are a still a few wrinkles to work out, but it is most definitely a nice addition to the PX3. We'll be looking for a few testers when the next version is ready (please wait for the announcement before you volunteer :)

73,
Wayne
N6KR"

PX3 Beta Firmware Revision
MCU 1.42 , 3-22-2016

* Adds: keyboard macros can now be executed even when the Text Display is turned off.
* Adds: #RCF command: “Relative Center Frequency” applies an offset to the center frequency based on the passed argument. Usage: #RCFsnnnnnn; Where: ‘s’ is the sign + or -, nnnnnn is the offset in Hz. For example, if the PX3 is set to a 30 kHz span and you would like to position the cursor on the left edge: #RCF+015000; Using #RCF without any arguments returns the difference in Hz between the center frequency and the vfo frequency.
* Fixes/Adds: Removed replay buffer and its controls and in its place added a “scratchpad” to hold temporary text such as call signs, names, etc. Text may be added to the scratch pad by first pressing the Insert key. The scratchpad is cleared each time it is opened. To move the scratchpad contents to the Tx buffer, press Ctrl-Insert. Pressing Ctrl-H when the scratchpad is open, displays a help screen. To exit the scratchpad, press Esc, Enter or Insert. You may also press a text macro assigned key which will execute after exiting the scratchpad. To embed the scratchpad contents in a text message, use \s . The scratchpad holds one line of text. It is erased after each power cycle.
* Fixes: USB/LSB passband inversion when using transverters.
* Fixes: an issue when using the ‘|’ command (IM) with text message strings shorter than 10 characters. The IM character is now correctly interpreted which should solve the problem of truncated strings.
* Fixes: Keyboard help screen being overwritten by spectrum trace and grid.
* Fixes: Full Tx keyboard buffer overflow issue in which buffer could not be sent with Enter.

PX3 firmware revision 1.48 is now available for download as a general release using the PX3 Utility.  This version is essentially the previous beta 1.45 along with a few minor fixes and one additional feature.  There is a new version of the PX3 Programmer's Reference (rev A6) as well a new errata (A8-1), which are both available from the Elecraft website.

Release notes for this version:

MCU 1.48 / 02/08/2017

Note: refer to the latest PX3 manual and PX3 Programmer's Reference for more information regarding these new features.

* Adds: USB MSD (mass storage device, memory stick, thumb drive) support.  Most types of flash drives are supported.  Added a new sub-menu called “MSD menu” which includes the following features: 
   + Scrn shot – takes a .bmp screen shot of the current screen. 
   + ConfgSave – saves the current configuration.
   + ConfgRstr – restores the configuration.
   + XportMacr – exports macros/text messages to a file which can be edited.
   + ImprtMacr – imports macros/text messages from a file.
   + Set Clock – allows setting of the clock used for file operations.


* Adds: Serial commands #MAA, #MBA to adjust A or B markers by an incrementing or decrementing.  The adjustment value is the same as used by the K3/KX3 UP and DN commands.  Usage: #MAAsn
      s = + to increment, - to decrement
      n = 0 adjust by 1 Hz
      n = 1   “   “  10 Hz
      n = 2   “   “  20 Hz
      n = 3   “   “  50 Hz
      n = 4   “   “  1 kHz
      n = 5   “   “  2 kHz
      n = 6   “   “  3 kHz 
      n = 7   “   “  5 kHz 
      n = 8   “   “  100 Hz
      n = 9   “   “  200 Hz
Or:
   #MAAs
      s = + to increment, - to decrement. The step size is automatically determined by the current span and mode:   
      
USB, LSB, AM & FM
Span < 5 kHz – step = 10 Hz
Span 2-9.99 kHz – step = 20 Hz
Span 10-49.9 kHz – step = 50 Hz
Span 50-99.1 kHz – step = 100 Hz
Span 100-200 kHz – step = 200 Hz
   

CW & Data
Span < 5 kHz – step = 2 Hz
Span 2-9.99 kHz – step = 20 Hz
Span 10-49.9 kHz – step = 50 Hz
Span 50-99.1 kHz – step = 100 Hz
Span 100-200 kHz – step = 200 Hz


* Adds: Frequency displays now show all digits including the Hz digit.  This includes the center frequency adjustment and marker values.  Note that markers adjust by values determined by the current span setting.

* Adds: To enter the text decode scratchpad, you can now use either Insert or Alt-P.  To send the scratchpad, you can now use either Ctrl-Insert or Ctrl-P .

* Adds: #MSS msd screen shot serial command.
