Thanks for the suggestion, Pierfrancesco!!
I e-mailed Wayne at Elecraft to see if he had any comments on my problem.
I may have read somewhere that current software for kx3 doesn't disable afx on data modes, you may want to check on elecraft mailing list, or shoot a mail at support@elecraft

Yep, I have the KX3 in the data mode with all audio modes off.
So, I guess the question is: Problem with the KX3 or with fldigi??
If anyone over there using KX3 doesn't have any problems
with fligi, then my guess would be something is not right with
KX3. I also cannot run jt65 since it also shows a blank waterfall.
Thanks for the suggestion.

- Holgar, thanks very much for the info you passed along the other day on the alsamixer. I installed that and now have retired the external speakers I was using with the splitter on the KX3. The laptop (Thinkpad T42) speakers work great - no distortion - and I have one less piece of equipment on the desktop.
I have a separate T42 running WinXP and the Rocky I-Q program to provide a spectrum display of the band from the I-Q output of the KX3. Rocky demodulates PSK31 in good shape and gives me an extra receiver even when in the Data A mode on the KX3.
Again - many thanks for passing along the alsamixer info. You never know when a comment like that turns on the lightbulb for some of us.

Also, turn your radio from SSB mode to DATA mode. This should turn off the
audio effects, but also AF equalizers.
- Okay, now that alsamixer did the trick for you, you save do this permanently. On my Debian system I do (as root)/etc/init.d/alsa-utils stop(the name might be slightly different if you use something else). That effectively calls "alsactl store" with a proper file name so that your settings can get restored at the next boot. And, yes, it works even if your system uses systemd (like mine) or upstart. But I could probably also run "alsactl store" by hand.Holger, DH3HS
- Holgar, I use Ubuntu 11.04 and so far the system remembers the last settings for alsamixer each time I boot. The settings I selected are the same the next time I fire up alsamixer, the only change I see is that the focus is on the Master setting instead of the last thing I adjusted when I shut down.
Again - thanks for the tip on installing alsamixer. I have been lobbying Wayne to allow the internal speaker to be active and have a fixed setting on the audio output of the KX3 in the DATA A mode, but with the alsamixer available that takes the pressure off that change in the KX3.
The capability has always been there for monitoring the input lines on the computer speakers in Windows, but I had not tumbled to the capability to do the same thing in a Linux operating system.
