Compatible with +2000 Radios

Can be used with almost any make or model microphone and most model radios no matter what brand

Any radio that has a 8 pin round screw on microphone connector

Any radio that has an RJ45 modular telephone style connector

Any radio with RJ25 6 wire microphone connector with the purchase of an optional FT100 style 6 wire modular mic. cable

Any radio with 4 pin round microphone connector with the purchase of a optional 4 pin mic cable

Computer Interface

Supplied with both a standard DB9 RS232 serial cable and USB cable interface (supported for Mac (OS9,10), Linux, Windows (98SE - Vista 32 and 64 bit)! May be used old or new computers with your choice of USB or RS232 DB9 serial

True Keyed CW

In addition to the PTT keying circuit there is a fully isolated CW/FSK keying output for direct keying of your rig's CW or FSK jack for use with non-sound card software, no other interface has this

Input for control of the additional fully isolated CW/FSK keying circuit as well as the PTT circuit is jumper selectable between serial port control pins: RTS, DTR, and TXD

Mic/Keying/Audio Flexibility

No extra manual switches needed, two DPDT relays for true automatic operation unlike other sound card interfaces

Simpler operation than the other brands, you never have to remember to push un-needed switches to make your station work

PTT override and interrupt enables mic to override the computer or stop the computer program, perfect for contesting or SSTV operation

Rear panel RCA PTT switch / foot switch jack enables the PPT override and interrupt

Internal diagnostic RTS, DTR and TXD LEDs show at a glance what the serial port is doing

Properly matched and RF suppressed audio for your radio

Fully isolated transmit audio and PTT keying, unlike other interfaces that have little or no isolation

Positive and fully automatic PTT control supports almost 100 ham programs, no illegal or spurious signals due to built in sound card VOX operation

The microphone audio is completely isolated from all other grounds. The sound card audio is isolated using an audio transformer. The serial and PTT circuits are isolated using, two DPDT relays, and an opto-isolator. A high grade DC blocking capacitor on sound card to mic. output is provided for use with radios that are designed for use with amplified or electret microphones.

The relays provide adequate current and voltage capability to switch tube rigs. The relays also provide automatic switching between sound card audio and the microphone plus our mic. override and mic. interrupt features.
