locked Re: Computer to radio connection


The SignaLink does not have any connection for radio control. It is only a sound card for audio plus a PTT signal derived from the audio.

You need a separate connection for radio control. In the case of the FT897, that would be from a serial port or USB-to-serial adapter from the computer, connected to the radio's CAT/linear connector through a CT-62 or equivalent adapter.
