Re: VHF Soundcard packet on FT-847 (solution)



Don't feel bad, I did EXACTLY the same thing. I bought the R-3 and, of
course, couldn't get it to work with the 847 on FM for ISS/PCSAT. Now that
I've found the Model R-FTMDIN, I'll get that and be happy using MIXW32 for
my ISS/PCSAT stuff. In the mean time I cobbled together a TNC into the Mike
input and have been using ZOC (terminal program for Win9x). It works fine,
but ties up a tnc for no real purpose. 73 and thanks so much for putting me
on to the "correct" interface.
