        FYI, NooElec also sells through their own website (www.nooelec.com) for slightly less then their prices through amazon.  No experience; I just did some pre-order research.

        There was an article on the Jan 2013 issue of QST on using these dongles for SDR

          From the menu choose: Configure Ports New Port  In the dialog box that comes up set the Port Type to AGW   Then give it a name like UZ7HOPress

            From the menu choose:
            >Configure >Ports >New Port
              In the dialog box that comes up set the Port Type to AGW
              Then give it a name like UZ7HO
            Press <Create>
              Then <TCP/IP> in the next dialog box

            Next dilog box use localhost for IP or DNS, if on the same computer (or the computer information where UZ7HO is running).  Also out the ip port from UZ7HO in the "Port" box (typically 8000).  Don't forget to forwad/open the port is this is a remote computer.

            Hit <OK>

            Verify checkboxes in main setup and hit <Accept>

            If the IP and port are correct, the status above the scroller should start with UZ7HO_Connect (probably won't see) and qiuckly change to UZ7HO_OK

                I think 8100 is the default KISS port on UZ7HO.
                 
                I know the KISS port will not allow TX for multiple streams (KISS Ports for stereo sound card input and output).
                Lynn would know if the AGW port does?

                    Are you connecting through a router - through the internet?
                    On a router, the port should be forwarded (associated with a particular IP on the local network) to ensure proper function and security.

                    I would be careful about opening ports to the "world" in a router.

                    This site has some useful information on IP ports in Windows

                    Leave the router as secure as you can!

                              Intersting site, will reference that when issues of disabling or enabling ports. Occasionally I wonder what is a port.* Craig Anderson of SJ RACES (www.sjraces.org) made this diagram (attached) during a quick review of networks. This shows the bottom layer of wires, connectors, to the upper layer of TCP/IP and where these ports are addressed. Craig began this brief presentation, "only difference between networking and networking is just one letter." illustrating how entire system can stop with just one misplaced digit, command, or address.

                              I looked up for list of IP ports, this seemed to be less cluttered list, http://web.mit.edu/rhel-doc/4/RH-DOCS/rhel-sg-en-4/ch-ports.html

                              * There was some discussion in a computer forum among networking gurus, a lay person jumped into discussion asking "what is a port?" He was answered, "it's like a train station but for ships."

                                    I have used jackd on linux before, but never quite got it to work with virtual devices/channels.
                                    I've also seen VBCable as an alternative, but have no experience with it.

                                    I will try VAC (Virtual Audio Cable).

                                    Thanks!

                                    Virtual Audio Cable was a program I installed separately from SDR Sharp. In SDR Sharp program there is a drop down menu on under Audio Output ( and Input too ) and that is where options are for computer speakers ( Windows Direct Audio ) or Virtual Audio Cable  1 and 2
