Re: [linuxham] Re: Problems with Rigblaster
- Hi Tearlach,
I'm sorry to hear you didn't get the Advantage fully working in Ubuntu
Regardless of the version of linux, you can always put the RIGblaster switch
in VOX and it will behave in an identical fashion to the Signalink USB. The
sound card driver seems to be included in most kernals. I.e. if it works
with the Signalink it will also work with the Advantage (in VOX mode).
The RIGblaster Advantage has an additional feature in VOX mode which may be
interesting to you or others on here -
the VOX circuit is logically OR'ed with the CW keying output - the result is
it will turn MCW (e.g. from fldigi) into a real key output which can be used
to send Morse Code using 'CW mode' on your radio. For full QSK, you can
disconnect the RIGblaster mic cable and then use the VOX delay control to
adjust break-in time.

I had just the same issues with the Rigblaster and got almost the same
errors that you have. I resolved the issue by putting the Rigblaster back in
the box and setting the box on a shelf in the basement.
I then got a SignaLink USB and plugged it in as stated by the manufacturer.
It has worked flawlessly since. No special drivers or any bit of fooling
about and beating my head against the computer box. Simply plug and play. I
reccomend making the same solution.
