K3 Line Out is set to nor 010
K3 RF Gain is set to 1 to 3 oclock

WSJTX slider is adjusted to where if I drew a line to the left
it would be the same level as about 05 on the db scale
the actual db readings are between 26db up to 30db
I went into the actual Win 7 LEVEL setting for my Delta 44 sound card
and set it so I got the above readings of 26db to 30db
now if I need to adjust for a different level
depending on my antenna, band conditions, or someones signal being to strong
I can either change the K3's RF Gain
or drag the WSJTX slider
so I can maintain a 20-30db reading on the WSJTX readings
which is where it decodes the best (so says fine manual <g>)

I'm struggling to find audio level settings that will produce decodes. I can see
nice signals on the waterfall and they're all very audible in my headphones so
S/N isn't a problem. Transmit is working fine.
I'm using a K3 Lineout connected to an external USB soundcard which is properly
recognized as LineIN at the PC. I've also tried the internal PC audiocard LineIn
function. Both are properly recognized but their audio levels are much higher
than what is expected by the program...at least that's what it seems. With the
LineIN set to 50% I still need to put the slider on the main page to about 15%
to keep the noise level around 30db as suggested. Should I reduce the LineIN
level even further? I would think that LineIN levels are fairly standard. What
level of LineIN is recommended?
I have the K3 AGC off to minimize confusion. Is that a good start?
I have the input set to 1 channel, 16bit, 48000hz. I have also tried it with 2
channel, 16 bit, 48000hz. Neither seems better. Which is more appropriate?
In the Setup menu I'm offered MME, DirectX, WASAPI and WDM-KS for the same
device. Which interface is preferred for a Win7/64 machine? This is a 2.6Ghz
quadcore so not lacking in performance.
