The TigerTronics SignaLink/USB uses the sound from the PC to
trigger it's own internal PTT circuit to the rig. I guess it
is almost like VOX. I have one USB connection to the PC and
one connection to the AUX port on my TS-480SAT. I wonder if
this type of a device would work properly for the fellas
having problems with the ICOM gear(?) IIRC someone on the
list said that the RigBlasterUSB works in a similar manner.
