This computer has 3 sound cards, the Window default is NOT used
for digital modes.

careful setting a ham sound card as the windows default!!

Really recommend using any other sound card (e.g. cheapo USB
stick) as
the default, for windows sounds/dings/email notification/web
or ads, etc ... all of that will go out over the air if it
while you're transmitting.

This is a common topic on the JT65/JT-Alert related
reflectors, but
applies to all digital.

On a similar note, took me a while to realize that my
IC706MKII mic is
"hot" when i'm transmitting digital (PSK/JT65), so i have to
is when working those modes, since the rig is in USB (no
"DATA" mode
like more modern rigs). So i'm sure i echo'd some phone
calls, dog
barks, etc over the air.

For the serial<->USB issue ... try a different USB port, too.
sometimes windows is weird....

Hi, folks. I just got off the phone with West Mountain
support. We spent quite a bit of time trying several
things, all
unsuccessful. He just sent me some software that he
felt might
work and he also thought my serial to USB cable might
defective. (the best customer support I have experienced
in quite
a while!) I will try both and let you all know. thanks

Hello, folks. I was pretty active using PSK last
year. I
needed a
new computer in Jan. I made all the same
connections with my
sound card and alternative MIC connection. I
beautifully - any
signal on the waterfall, BUT, I cannot get my rig
746pro) to
TRANSMIT! I tried to open every com port (one at a
connections, etc. I'm stumped. Any ideas, anyone?
I'd sure
it. thanks, Marcus, KM5EH (070-714)
