Sorry that's not correct as best I can tell. The 3.5mm socket is
used for any modes which are injected using SSB mode.. eg PSK31,
RTTY, SSTV, Hellschreiber, MFSK, AFSK, etc. It is not suitable for FSK
which is done using the mini-DIN data socket.

I just transmitted PSK31 on 2m using the HF data socket without issue.
I guess it is labelled "HF data" because those modes are most common
on HF.
