I've solved the problem and am successfully on the air now with fldigi.
I managed to make a trivial task more complicated than necessary.
After realizing that there was as tty button on the left side of the
configuration panel that I had overlooked, I was greeted with the
welcome clicks of the keying relay in the Rigblaster interface and
knew then I was over the hump!
I hope that the next time I have to turn for help it will be for
something of real consequence.
Thanks again for being here.
