SDR Softrock Ensemble RXTX 40/30/20 with Winlink Email
- I wounder if it is possible to use the SDR radio together with Winlink software using WINMOR sound card protocol. Perhaps connecting another computer to the sound card? if yes, how to control the PTT. If anybody has any comments on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have never seen any reference to this.
I guess this is packet? So with soundcards would you use AGW?
Then it would be necessary to connect to a SDR program with VAC.
I don't think this is for a beginner, best of luck!

- Aaron;you might want to try something like WSPR first that natively supports the Softrocks. You can bring up a map once it's operating and see who has heard your signal. http://wsprnet.org/drupal/wsprnet/map If you scroll down, you can filter the map by band and call sign to see your own paths that are open. Don't forget to uncheck the idle box to allow transmit. Be patient while it does it's thing. You can watch the small waterfall and see if there are any signals coming in.Download site: http://www.physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/WSPR 2.1 includes these enhancements: Support for software-defined receivers and transceivers that use complex (I-Q) sampling, such as the popular SoftRock kits.I also use http://www.thinkman.com/dimension4/default.htm to sync my PC clock accurately.73 Steve, KM5HT
