Re: [linuxham] Do I require a RigBlaster?
- What radio?
K3 - no, IC-7200 - no. As Rick says there are good less-expensive options.
If you're not using an ICOM radio with a USB cable then whatever you do
please consider a second soundcard, some of these interfaces have a second

Do I require a RigBlaster to operate PSK?

Most radios will require some sort of an interface between the computer
and radio if for no other reason than isolation. While the Ribblaster
Plus doesn't provide isolation on the RX audio, they just provide a
cable with a 1/8" plug on the ends, it does isolate the TX audio and
provide a couple of differing methods of keying the PTT. I like the
Plus since it allows me to keep my desk microphone connected to it and
not have to swap cables all the time.

- You need an interface. Some have built them and it isn't hard.
I had a old RibBlaster which worked fine, but all the interfaces
I have seen except one has the same problem. It ties up your sound
card or you need a second sound card.
I got the SignaLink USB which has a built in sound card. I can now
go from digital to phone and have my main sound card playing without
moving wires. Life is good!
