      Hi Jim,

      Could you tell me the chip set of the device please? Unfortunately manufacturers have been known to change the chips during a production run if they find a cheaper supplier.

      If you're new to linux you can find it by typing 'lsusb'.

      Might this sort of info be useful in a group file?

      TIA

        Hi Paul,
        I  was going to say I couldn't.  I bought it from Star Tech (www.startech.com) for about $22 US around a year ago.  Their part # is ICUSBAUDIO and I should have included that in the post - My bad.  I just went back to the Star Tech website and looked it up again.  Much to my surprise, it is still available ($21.99 US)  and in the tech specs, they DO list the chipset.  C-Media - CM108AH  so there you go Paul.

            I haven't heard of a way to do this - The config program metiones GPIO, but it seems this refers to the GPIO pins on some usb sound dongles. I think you'd have to modify the soundmodem source - which would be pretty simple to do.

            Sorry if this has been asked before, I searched the group but haven't come up with anything useful yet. Anyway, has anyone gotten soundmodem to use one of the GPIO pins for PTT? I am working on a Raspberry Pi tracker program using soundmodem for the TNC and the only thing missing is a way to key the radio. I'd really like to stay away from VOX if at all possible. I have seen some references to using the RTS line from the onboard serial, but I will be using the serial data lines (hamlib rig control) and I'm not sure if hamlib and soundmodem can share the same serial port.

            Thanks!

                  of the development of SDR (Software defined Radio) and the commercial,
                  open source and experimental options available to licensed radio
                  amateurs worldwide.

                  Its purpose is educational and informative.

                  In this new forum important things can be discussed such as:

                  What is DUC and DDC transceivers? Who is making them?

                  Does Hermes or Mercury, mean anything to you? What about SDR-IQ or Perseus?

                  Do they cost more or less to manufacture? Where are they manufactured?
                  Who manufactures them? What is a FPGA? And an ADC? Where are these
                  components engineered and/or manufactured?

                  What are the differences between Open Source software and Propietary
                  software? PowerSDR, SmartSDR, cuSDR, Ham-radio SDR, QTradio and many
                  others…? Who is writing them? What is their history?

                  What about Gigabit? What is it all about? And all this about sample
                  rates and slices? How do these advances impact the cost of the SDR radio?

                  Is SDR for everyone?

                  And, what’s this about client servers?

                  How much more am I purchasing for $9,000.00? If I already have a
                  $900.00/ 100W transceiver that operates all bands from 160M to 432MHz
                  (70cm)?

                  How important are these extreme statistics being published by the ARRL
