Sending DTMF tones

I have been wanting to use the Preston Echolink enabled repeater for a while now.

My first roadblock was not having a DTMF microphone. Thanks to a dear friend the microphone was made available as a generous gift to me. After receving the new mic and plugging it in I found that I could not get it to work.

Because I was able to attend the recent Broken Arrow Ham Radio Breakfast I mentioned the problem to Kevin Arnold(KD5RHF). He ask if I was holding down on the push to talk key when trying to send DTMF. I said "Yes" I think I was.

Even though I knew that what Kevin said was exactly how it works I needed a reminder.

Now I can send DTMF. Problem Solved...Thank you Kevin and the Broken Arrow Ham Radio Breakfast group.
