Re: Using WSJT-X with SDRs #sdrs


 

My mistake I use VB-Audio. The free version of VAC cannot be used for TX as it sticks extra audio in the path. I think it’s $25 to get a “clean” version.

I use com0com for the control. Virtual Audio Cable gives you one cable for free. For a small donation you can get the second cable (needed for TX and RX).

Pete,

I use my SDRPlay RSPdx receiver with WSJT-X and it works well.  I implement the CAT and audio paths via free versions of VSPE and Virtual Audio Cable, respectively.  The SDR program, SDRuno, allows easy selection of the CAT and audio paths.  I imagine many similar SDR applications have the same facility. It's just a case of making a device pair within VSPE, and tweaking the monitoring capability of VAC should you want to monitor the receiver audio in the PC speaker. Just select a basic Kenwood CAT protocol in WSJT-X.

It's likely possible to do the same thing for a small SDR transceiver since the paths are bi-directional, so you could have both a beacon transmitter and receiver.

73, Peter.
