Using Fldigi to transmit RTTY FSK with the WinKeyer USB
You can now use Fldigi to transmit RTTY FSK with the WinKeyer USB. The WinKeyer USB v3.1 will send RTTY FSK. One benefit of using the WK3 USB is that in Fldigi it will send real CW and RTTY FSK. My last article showed how the ACC cables were made for the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610. This article will show how to configure Fldigi to send RTTY FSK and log the contacts into N3FJPs ACLog. There’s a video below.
Connect your home made accessory cable to the rear of the Winkeyer USB and then to your ICOM radio. I connected mine to port 1 on the WinKeyer USB. More on that here.
In ACLog go to settings TCP/IP and enable UDP on port 1100.
WinKeyer USB Configuration – Users
I setup my WK3 with two users, one for CW and one for RTTY. Use WK3 Tools 5.2 to accomplish this.
After configuring users, hold down the “Red” button on the WK3 until you hear “dit-dah-dit”, then with your paddle or key, switch to the RTTY user by entering the command “X” for extended command mode and then “U” to change user. My first user is for RTTY so when I hear one dit after entering “U” I know I am ready for RTTY. Two dits would indicate user two is ready.
Note: Before you change the WK3 users using the paddle you will need to disconnect from the WK3 in the software.

You can find lots of information in the WKUSB Manual with 3.1 updates.
