Using Skype to Provide Streaming Audio to your iDevice

Skype is a free Internet service you can use to provide streaming audio from your K3 or KX3 to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You can learn more about Skype by visiting the Skype site:

Two Skype accounts are required, one running on your PC or Mac that is connected to your K3 or KX3 and the other running on your iPhone. The latest Skype version for the iPhone supports multitasking on the iPhone 3GS running iOS4 or the iPhone 4. Multitasking is important because you will want to run Skype in the background while you are using K3iNetwork or K3iDitDah.

Using Skype

  1. Start Skype on the PC or Mac that is connected to your K3/KX3.
  2. Start SServer or K3NetServer and make sure it is controlling your K3/KX3 properly. Be sure the server and K3/KX3 are set to the same Baud rate (38400 baud ideally).
  3. Start Skype on your iPhone and call the Skype account on your PC/Mac. You should hear your K3/KX3 audio in the iPhone headset.
  4. Click the Home button on your iPhone to send Skype to the background. You should continue to hear your K3/KX3 audio. An iPad, iPhone 3GS or later, or an iPod touch 3rd generation or later (32GB or 64GB only), is required for multitasking so you can hear your radio and run K3iNetwork or K3iDitDah at the same time.
  5. Start K3iNetwork or K3iDitDah on your iPhone. Be sure you have the correct Port/IP settings in K3iNetwork or K3iDitDah and tap Connect.
  6. Enjoy remote operation of your K3/KX3.
