WinKeyer3 and Ham Radio Deluxe DM780 Settings For CW

Yes the WinKeyer3 will work beautifully with Ham Radio Deluxe Digital Master 780 and the settings are very easy. To upgrade your WinKeyer2 to WinKeyer3 see my previous post, Upgrade Winkeyer 2 to Winkeyer 3. Winkeyer3 will also send RTTY FSK! More on that to come.

Winkeyer3 Cables

You can purchase the cables for WinKeyer USB from K1EL or maybe you have them laying around in a junk drawer as I did.

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.
