    There are some videos showing setting up Flex & SDR for digital.

    Digital Modes for Flex Radio, Part 1 - YouTube

    Digital Modes for Flex Radio, Part 2 - YouTube

    It's all done with software... you will need the VAC ( Virtual Audio Cables ) program to the digital audio streams between PowerSDR and the PSK program and you will need a virtual comport program, such as com0com to route control signals.


    See: What is VAC and What Does It Do?
    and: What is a virtual com port or null modem emulator?

    I would avoid the X1M I have heard that the stability is a bit to far off to use it in digital modes.
