PTT compatibility Transistor logic only, tube amps not supported. Positive pull down .15 V min. @ 2 ma. max
Serial interface (DB9F connector) Standard RS232
RS232 Pin Assignments (DB9 PC signal set)
  • Pin 4 Data Terminal Ready (PTT control)
  • Pin 5 Signal Ground (isolated digital common)
  • Pin 7 Request To Send (PTT control)

The sound card audio is isolated from ground using an audio transformer. A high grade DC blocking capacitor on the sound card to mic. output is provided for use with radios that are designed for use with amplified or electret microphones. An opto-isolator provides fully isolated PTT control or CW keying.

Unlike the RIGblaster Pro, Plus II and Plus, which use relays for PTT keying, the Nomic's opto-isolator will not safely key an older tube rig. The CW keying and PTT keying circuits are only designed to work with modern solid state radios.
