      IMHO – I can recommend Signalink USB. I have used that with a Kenwood TS-570/TS-2000 – but now I have a K3 so I don’t need any interface.


      I tried out Rigblaster PRO – and the only thing it will do is take the DTR pin and key the radio – it does not have a built in soundcard, no usb, and if you are using a laptop you then still need a serial port to key the radio. I have not used any other products from them, but I was very surprised that they did not have a built in USB FTDI chip – rather they supply just a USB dongle that I found out to be low quality.


      Signalink does this in a different way, it comes up as a second soundcard, that you can tie directly to WSJT. It then uses a VOX feature to key the radio. Only thing you must do is to order the correct cable for your radio and a pre-wired header that you insert into the Signalink – then you are good to go. (I would recommend DXEngineering)


      I have used this setup on EME and HF with great success.

      Does anyone have any experience with the Rigblaster radio interfaces?
      1. Rigblaster Pro
      2. Rigblaster Advantage
      3. Rigblaster Plus II

      I am new to all this and want to buy an interface that works well with the least setup problems.
