Features

• Compatible with every soundcard equipped computer.
• Works with every present or future HAM radio soundcard program.
• Properly matched audio to your radio.
• Advanced circuit design and cable shielding for RFI product suppression.
• Bidirectional transformer isolation of input and output audio signals.
• Full optical isolation of your radio and PC.
• High quality and professionally designed fiberglass printed circuit board.
• High quality and stylish inline screwed flat box for PCB.
• No external power supply needed, great for portable or QRP installations.
• Robust and light set, excellent for both - portable and shack use.


Input and output audio signals from the radio to the computer and vice versa are supplied through 1:1 bidirectional audio transformers for proper isolation of the circuit. Positive and fully automatic PTT control and CW are supplied from the computer to the radio from USB port through the circuit based on the FTDI USB to Serial Bridge Controller and the optocoupler for proper optical isolation between your computer and the radio. PTT control uses RTS line in the virtual COM port created after driver installation. PTT line provides +5 VDC by virtue of a corresponding voltage stabilizer implemented into the USB to Serial Bridge Controller circuit. CW uses DTR line.

We do not write digital mode programs. We also cannot properly support software, only the author of that software can. 

There is a lot of digital mode programs listed on the following websites:

• RV3APM Data Mode Software Collection - http://www.qsl.net/rv3apm/  
• DL9QJ Data Mode Software Collection - http://www.muenster.de/~welp/sb.htm 
• AC6V Data Mode Software Collection - http://www.ac6v.com/opmodes.htm 

More can be found on the Internet. 

Most of these are «freeware» or «shareware» and in many cases provide a level of performance beyond your wildest dreams.
