Re: PSK-1 & FT-847 packet jack?



Hi again Robert!

I'm running my PSK-1 successfully off the Packet jack, NOT the data in/out.

For RX only, I would think that the packet pin at 1200bps is the same as the
data in/out output (except the level's maybe different) whether you're in FM
or SSB as it's an audio signal on both.

Similarly I use the Packet jack for 1200BPSK sat, although it's been a while
since I used this mode. You TX on FM and RX in SSB in that mode.

I put a schematic of a switch box I use with the PSK-1/TNC-NB96 and FT-847
on my web page www.btinternet.com/~hlong
