All replicated ‘buttons’ provide access from a touch screen, or via mouse or short cuts on the standard keyboard. The radio’s physical control-head,¬†microphone and speaker can be used in parallel with the SoftRadio VCH. All connections are made from the rear 15 pin connector on the radio. The Virtual Control Head includes an optional numeric keyboard, useful e.g. for use with selective calls or channel selection. Settings on the radio:

  • GPIO Pin 10¬† programmed for external PTT active low. (Extended function, AUX-Tab)
  • The External PTT (voice) shall be connected to the MI2 line. (Extended function, Modulation Line-Tab)

Two jumpers within the radio need to be set to access the audio I/O on the rear connector. Please see the installation manual for details.
