What you will need
first get the plugin that controls codecs!
SABRENT USB-SBCV USB 2.0 External 2.1 Surround Sound Adapter or possibley any other but this is what i used 10.00
2 stereo 3 foot male to male cables 2.00ea at walmart
A Four pin splitter to separate speaker and mic jacks on my HP Red laptop 5.00
Here is what to do with the stuff
After inserting USB sound card make sure your internal sound mic and speakers sre set to default!!! at least I had to.
usb mic in connects to speaker out embedded device
usb speaker out connects to mic in embedded device ( your computer or laptop sound card )
! setup fldigi to use the external usb sound card
set all leval adjusments to 0
Set Hamshere 4 to use your computer or laptops Primary Sound driver for audio out and Primary Sound Capture for audio in adjust levels to 0
here are my settings that work for vox enabled ( you can do it manually if you want but when fldigi sends i want the rig vos to activate and turn off after fl is done sending.
the usb sound adaptor is set to...
mic in level apox 50 gets audio from HS Rig to decode
speaker out level aprox 5 sends audio cw or digital modes to HS Rig
Embedded sound adaptor settings...
mic in gets audo from fldigi 10
Speaker Out 10
On HS Rig
Vox delay all the way up double click on vox gain
Vox gain aprox 90%
POWER OUTPUT 5W default
It does not take a lot of power to do CW and DMs most of the time...
This is the CORE SETUP I USE...You will not hear any audio out of anything but when you use cw of psk31 or MMSTV slow scan TV you do not need to
this should get you in the ball park fine tune settings to achieve ALC Drive in the GREEN i peak about 2 most of the time.
IF one does not succeed.....try again he must...fail you cannot....Yoda
