Anyone done anything to update/upgrade their setup recently? I made a couple of modest changes that really paid off big operating dividends, and added some really cool functionality to my Galaxy. I have been running PSK-31 and SSTV quite a lot with my Yaesu FT-847 and a homebrew simple rig-to-computer interface that a friend made for me. It worked perfectly, but I didn't like the fact that it got audio into the rig through the mic connector, instead of using the "DATA" port on the back of the rig. Same thing with the sound out to the computer--it came from the external speaker jack, instead of the dedicated DATA jack. The really nice thing about the DATA jack is that the levels are fixed. I had to always be careful and vigilant with the Mic Gain and volume controls to avoid overloading. So I purchased a "TiniCat-847" interface used for about 50 bucks and have it hooked up. In addition to now using the fixed level DATA port on the rig, the new IX also has the added feature of CAT control of the rig via serial port. Now, using either the Ham Radio Deluxe suite, or the DXLab suite, I have the full integration of those programs with rig control. Now the logging and digital routines in both programs work together. Log windows are already filled out with most of the relevant info, I just have to add my signal report info and click save. Pretty slick. The other really cool thing I got going is I rewired the mic plug for the older interface with a 4 pin plug setup for Galaxy/Cobra wiring. So now I've got a Galaxy DX2517 (which has been modded for full 10 meter coverage) now running SSTV and PSK-31 modes! Additionally, I have two of those mic plug adapters for the Lincoln/2510 and the Magnum 6 pin! So I could get digi modes going on my Lincoln or any future Magnums that I might have (I want a 257) with just the use of a mic adapter. How cool is that? Just a small amount of money and time, and I have really enhanced my operation here. Now if I could just get this AGWPE sound card packet program working, I'd be batting 1000 for the week!
