Actually I am not sure. I tried to transmit with HDSDR. I used it with my Softrock RXTX without problem.
I tried to use the same approach with Peaberry and when I start transmiting I can hear a weak signal (carrier) in my receiver tuned at the same frequency. But this signal is too weak. That symtom is the same if I use CFGSR software and I press the PPT button on tab test functionality .

Am I doing something wrong?

Well, I am keep tying.
I will appreciate if some one help me on my debugging.

The easiest thing to do is use an oscilloscope and follow the signal through the block diagram. Somewhere along the way you'll stop seeing it and have found the problem. If you're sure everything is set up right and the speakers work, the problem is likely in the RF amps.

Well, I will try do that. But it will be difficult for me because I have not enough skill yet.

If you get stuck, just ask here for help with the next step. Most of the time these radios work on the first try, but when they don't you have an opportunity to learn.

First, we need to divide the problem between digital+software issues and the analog circuits. Does the radio draw more power when you turn on the transmitter?

The current draw is 170mA during receiving and 260mA during transmitting.
I am using HDSDR on Windows 7.
The receiver is working very nice. Better than my receiver Degen 1121.
I can hear a small signal (carrier) in the receiver when I trigger the PTT. Speaking at the mic, I can see the graphical representation of my audio in HDSDR interface.

Thanks.

Good. Next, transmit CW and measure VOUTL-, VOUTL+, VOUTR-, and VOUTR+. You need a scope, diode probe, or DMM that works with audio frequencies. The exact voltage depends on the software; between 1-5V.

OK. So I have another problem.
The Peaberry circuit suggests a keyer function like an iambic. Am I right?
I tried set up a couple of push buttons to simulate paddles of a iambic.
So I selected CW mode and turned on the TX on HDSDR and tried to work with CW.
Nothing happened.
In this case I think that the problem is Software.
This same behavior happens with my Softrock RXTX that works fine in LSB/USB mode.

HDSDR uses the enter key to send morse code.
