XTS External Keyup

Postby KE4NYVJR » Sun Nov 20, 2016 6:29 am

I'm working on a project for a buddy and I'm having a hell of a time getting an XTS2500 or 5000 to key up through accessory port. When I look at the pinout, I see ground, but I don't see a pad for PTT. I see a Busy pad, so I wondered if that was the PTT (kind of like Kenwood's way of using "standby" a the PTT term). That didn't work. He bought one of these adapters that attaches on and gives you a 3.5mm speaker connection, as well as a built in PTT button. The PTT button is not keying the radio. So I grabbed my Motorola adapter and it won't key the radio either. However, if I connect my Motorola speaker mic, no problem keying the radio.

I'm wondering if there is something in programming that isn't allowing the keyup with the adapter, possibly through the opt_sel1 and opt_sel2 pads on the port.

Any help would be appreciated. Iv'e been sitting on this project for months and he's getting tired of waiting :o)

The post from NAND in the thread link below explains it very well.

Thanks! I did a forum search prior to posting and this thread didn't come up. I must have searched the wrong keywords. Thanks again!
