psk31 and Kantronics Kcp3
« on: July 07, 2009, 10:19:46 PM »
So I went to field day this year and ended up helping another ham set up a new signalink usb so that he could work psk31. I am hooked, have ordered my signalink usb and it should arrive next week. wanting to learn more about this mode.

I have an old Katronics KPC3? does anybody still use these? I have not use it in 15 years ? before the internet, not even sure how to or what programs would work with it?

KAm is good equip.  As for a TNC it's the one I would choose.  Used one for amtor and Pactor to run my backbone station for another group I'm associated with.  That's about it though, using a signalink usb interface and my pc for all the other digital modes.

Can I get a review of the signalink?  I was looking at it and it looks interesting.  How does it work for you?  What modes have you used with it?

Thanks,
Brian

I have only used PSK31, but it works awesome!  Just follow the set up instructions that come with the unit and you should be good to go. You have to set the jumpers inside based on the radio you want to run it with (easy). I was on the air in about 20 min total?  Love it and use it a lot, I pick up more DX stations with it than phone.

Saturday @2000 UTC (4 PM eastern) I'll fire up the script to start the first APRN digital net on a frequency of 14.071.5 (USB or DIG) BPSK-31 mode ~1000 Hz on the waterfall
