      Christos,

      I got the hsusb driver to install, and PowerSDR-IQ installed and chose the SI570 and unsopported sound card.
      Everything seemed okay to this point. The HSUSB showed up as HSUSB SV1EIA.

      Paul,

      It seems that the copy and past has a problem

      The downloads folder is
      -> http://code.google.com/p/powersdr-iq/downloads/list

      and from there you can download the PowerSDR-IQ 1.12.6 and the USB
      connections for PTT_CW_BPF control.pdf

      The home page of PowerSDR-IQ googlecode site is
      -> http://code.google.com/p/powersdr-iq/

      73,
      Christos SV1EIA
