Thank you for that, Bill. I missed that. Sorry for the misinformation.

Chris, please disregard last transmission. Wrong radio.

unless Chris has given us the wrong model, he has a K3 not a K3S. I believe he could fit the Elecraft module that includes USB audio and CAT, that comes as standard in a K3S, but it will be much cheaper to purchase a basic USB sound card.

Okay, I have been going through the K3S manual regarding audio. It does indeed have a built in sound card, so you should not need anything external. The USB cable will carry both your serial information for control and PTT as well as the digital audio information.

I will do some research on digital audio input on the Mac to see how it identifies. You shouldn't have to worry about the line/out jack on either the radio or the computer.

I need some recommendations for digital interfaces or external sound cards. For use with a newer mac that doesn’t have line in or out. For K3 to use WSJT, FT8

I think this group is bound to have some experience in this regard.
