  • T/R switch

    The T/R macro works well, but adding a timer or user selectable timer would return rig to rx mode if link is lost or one forgets to turn it off etc
    A safety feature...

      T/R switch

      Howard, is there anyway to use one of the volume buttons on the side of the iPhone as the PTT? This would make using the iPhone a whole lot easier for xmitting while holding it like a phone. I realize that you would have to disable its volume function first.
      Just an idea,
      Dave

        Hi Dave--

        I agree it would be nice to have a PTT switch. We might run into the Apple approval process by redefining one of the switches. Apple now allows the use of one of the buttons as a camera shutter, but there was a big squabble with an app publisher a year ago who tried to do that first. Apple is pretty clear about what can and can't be done.

        Thanks for the suggestion!

            There is a walkie talkie app called Zello that lets you program the volume up button for tx as well as the typical touch screen. I too would love to see this feature. Sometimes i have trouble with my display shutting off if it senses my hand moving over the screen just inches away. Its the same as when you take a call and raise the phone to your head.

              That's an interesting question I will have to research. Normally, Apple is extremely conservative for allowing non-standard use of buttons such as the volume up/down buttons. I am surprised you have a problem with your hand blanking the screen. The sensor used for detecting your ear is at the top of the screen, out of the way of most gestures.
