Am using Galaxy Tab 3, 8" with my KX3. It works FB in receive mode but crashes in TX. Sometimes it crashes when I first hit the send button, other times it crashes at the end of a transmission. I just uninstalled it and re-installed, but no change. Any ideas?
Can someone help I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and would like to connect my KX3. In the free version everything works ufb, unfortunately after I bought the full version, the KX3 Companion Full version hangs up and does not react, I have to close the program and then I can start the program again but unfortunately no function. The KX3 is addressed with a Piglet via W-Lan 4800 Bd. Can someone give me a hint what I can try or where the difference between the free version to the full version, except for the price ... Thank you in advance, 73 es 55 Chris de OE6CUD
Hi Andrea! Sorry for the late reply. I was in September 3 weeks in 9A and have my KX3 tested with the app and is running. My change was the polling time on 300. Thanks for Info. Thank you so developing a great app for your quick response and congratulations for your work. Since one it was developed by a radio amateur for radio amateurs looks. Please keep it up. Sorry by my not good English.
I notice the same problem like Chris. For my Galaxy 3 everything works fine for the free version, but paid still hanging. I must bought try again with suggested 200/300 ms pooling time.
Yes, uninstall and reinstall and rise the polling time to 200/300 ms and eventually lower the serial baudrate to 19200/9600 (on both the app and the KX3). Default settings are made for very fast devices. Next update will have more reasonable default settings
Ciao Andrea, first at all congratulation for your FB job.
I'm absolutely new to the KX3; I own it since a few days. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.1 with audio splitter cable and OTG cable. Communication between the tablet and the KX3 is ok but I can't go on PSK31.
The KX3 switches to TX but no audio is transmitted. What went wrong ? How do I have to setup the radio ?
The PSK31 (as well as CW and RTTY) with the KX3 is not done using the audio channels but the serial one. The audio is only needed to have the audio spectrum/waterfall. But to encode/decode CW/PSK31/RTTY you only need the USB Serial to be attached to your smartphone/tablet.
Said that, it's fundamental that you set the mode to PSK31 if you want to send/receive PSK31. Then make sure that you have TEXT decoding enabled in the KX3. You can do that by pressing the TEXT button. You should see a "T" in the KX3 display. This allows the decoded text to be shown in the KX3 Companion RX display as well.
Transmission is not made via audio but via serial as well. The app tells the KX3 what to send, and the KX3 sends the message using the PSK31 encoding features.
I hope this clears things out. If you keep having problems feel free to contact me directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Andrea, I play around with your app for a while, but I'm still not able to use the swr function. I tried it with my Samsung Galaxy Pro 8.4 and with my portable phone Samsung Galaxy S2. On both devices the same behaviour. When the frequency passes the center, the app crashes. Run button remains dimmed. Tried several combinations of polling time and baudrates. No success. Any suggestions? 73, Herb
Hi Herb, unfortunately is seems that the SWR Meter is not stable enough on some devices. I'm recoding it from scratch for next version so that it should work well on all devices. The SWR Meter function uses a sort of hack/trick in the KX3 programming to work and it's a little bit tricky to make it work 72/73 Andrea IU4APC
