When I do digital I like the Fldigi software.
The learning curve is not too steep.
I love the SignalLink USB interface.
This is a sound card in a box that will adapt to about any rig, and it works very well!
DX engineering has the best price on them.
I am going to get my kx3 going next week and join in too!

I have always used Digpan for PSK31.  Mainly just because I am used to it.  For any other mode, I use fldigi.

My interface is a very simple home brew thing in an altoids tin.  Just pots to adjust the RX and TX levels and a simple transistor keying circuit from a serial port.  No isolation, I was lucky that this worked.  It is an old computer (yes, still running the doomed XP).  My plan is to re-load the computer with linux, then I will just use fldigi for everything.

de KC0PET, Rick

Re: SS-40 IF Filter Mod

Thanks for the filter info.
I may try the mod on mine.

Keep an eye on the Web site, 
Shortly after FDIM we will release the SS 40 
TX board. It turns the SS 40 into a very nice transmitter. Super easy to build, plays very nicely!!

 What I came up with was a filter about 350 Hz wide with a nice shape and a good match.
I used 330 Pf in place of the two single 270 Pf caps.
And I used 680 Pf caps in place of the 150/270 Pf pairs.
Has anyone else tried tighter filters with this radio?
I enjoy the radio much more now with the tighter filter. The CW signals seem to pop out now.

I also added a DDS VFO to the radio with a digital readout.

It is a great little radio and even more fun once you add your own personal touches.

Hi Johnny,

 

Is the Thursday morning net at 7:30 or 8:30. I was going to check in at 8:30 but you all went quit! The 4sqrp.com web site has it down as 8:30 Central time. Not a big issue just clarifying.

 

Have a good day and God Bless you and yours.

Three stalwarts braved the QRN tonight.  It wasn't too bad, running S5 to S7 here.  Bert made it in using his indoor antenna draped around his shack's ceiling, good going Bert, you had a good signal tonight.  I think Johnny was in his NVIS ant tonight, it's a special design called a Super Gainer, and does quite well at Four State distances.  KV6Z sounded good as usual and Paul's sig was strong.  He was using his KD1JV Tribander on a dipole up 50 ft.

Many thanks to all es hope to hear you again next week.
