Wireless Transceiver Interface
Connect your transceiver to the
Internet via a Wi-Fi network. Use your laptop to operate phone,
CW or digital modes from anywhere in the world!
RigExpert WTI-1 is a revolutionary
new device to interface your transceiver to your computer
wirelessly. It provides:
- Transceiver audio interface
Analog audio interface is a connection to transceiver audio
output (external speaker connector or line output) and
transceiver audio input (microphone connector or line input).
Audio interface enables operating digital modes, recording and
playing voice, as well as other useful functions (such as
measuring levels of a signal from the air) by using a
You may use a conventional headset on your computer to operate
voice modes. A virtual sound card drives is provided to
support operating digital modes.
- CAT interface for various transceiver models
CAT (Computer Aided Transceiver) system provides control of
transceiver frequency, operating mode and other functions by
computer software. Normally, modern transceivers have serial
(with various signal levels) link providing CAT interface.
In RigExpert WTI-1, CAT interface port is seen as a COM port
by computer software.
- FSK output
FSK (Frequency Shift Keying) is a popular method of
transmitting digital messages over radio primarily used in
radioteletype (RTTY) mode. Most transceivers provide FSK
modulator feature to make the RTTY signal stable and clear.
A separate COM port is assigned for the FSK output when using
- PTT and CW output functions
Transceivers provide PTT (Push To Talk) and CW (Continuous
Wave) keyer inputs to allow setting the transmitter on or off
and operating CW using external device (PTT pedal, CW bug or
paddle, terminal node controller, or personal computer).
In RigExpert WTI-1, PTT and CW outputs are assigned to the RTS
and DTR lines of a separate COM port. In addition, the user
may press the PTT button on the screen to activate
- WinKey emulation
To operate CW, you may use software which either directly
manipulates the DTR line, or uses the WinKey protocol.
A separate COM port is created in the system to support the
WinKey data exchange.
