Re: Addendum: Richard Garriott report: the first 3 days



Hi Lou and all,

OK, possible... but sure confusing.  Might be hard for ground ops to 
switch configurations between modes on a minute-by-minute basis. I pipe 
audio directly into sound card for SSTV, but I use a microphone near an 
external speaker (into the sound card) for voice activity, so it will 
pick up my voice too if I am calling.

I'm also kind of surprised that ground ops are even calling on voice 
when the SSTV is active.  Silly me.

73,
Stan W4SV
