Option: Automatic speech transmission (parrot function)

With this option and some additional hardware, CQ calls can be automatically repeated. The hardware consists of an interface (for connecting the sound card, the serial port, and the microphone) and a connector cable to the microphone and headphone jacks of the transceiver.


Record the voice sequence with RadioLog. The file will be automatically saved in folder "…\W".

In the last line under Settings,    the function " Auto TX after (parrot)" can be switched on or off. The pause between two subsequent transmissions can be set (in seconds). For special use cases, the pause can be set using three digits. Example: With the pause time set to 720 s, the sound file will be sent every 2 hrs.

  When no file has been selected yet, the selection window can be opened by pressing the button " Auto TX " and clicking on  .

  In this window, sound files can be selected, deleted or renamed. After selecting a sound file, it will be played for control purposes (without activating the parrot function).

The parrot function is activated by clicking on  . The button toggles between on and off. When the talk button on the microphone is pressed, the parrot function will be switched off (signalled by the message TX_Mic). The parrot function can be reactivated manually. By right-clicking on "Auto TX", a new sound file can be selected (e.g. CQ_20.wav).

    or   Clicking the parrot switches the parrot function on/off.



Documentation for building the interface are available upon request.
