Notes
Two cable connections are required from the SignaLink to the Elecraft KX3 as follows:
  • Connect the RJ-45 end of the SLCABKX3 radio cable to the SignaLink’s “Radio” connector. Connect the 4-pin right-angle TRRS plug to the KX3’s “Mic” jack, being sure to fully insert the plug.
  • Connect the supplied right-angle mono audio cable between the SignaLink’s “SPKR” jack, and the KX3’s “Phones” jack. Be sure that both plugs are fully inserted.

KX3 Radio Settings:

1 - The “Mic Bias” setting in the KX3’s menu system should be turned OFF if you are using jumper wires. This setting can be left ON if you are using our SLMODKX3 jumper module as it has a built-in DC blocking capacitor.

2 - The “Mic Btn” setting should be set to either “PTT”, or “PTT Up.Dn.”.

3 - We recommend turning the KX3’s “Audio Effects” feature OFF, as it will likely cause receive problems during digital operation.

Notes
For special signals requiring un-filtered "discriminator" audio, you will need to move the "SPKR" jumper to pin #4 (9600 baud output).  Note that some newer radios do NOT provide this output, so this may not apply to your radio.

Power is not available on any 6-pin mini DIN Data Port, so you will need to use external power for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

**IC-703 - If you are using the Data Port on this radio, then you must set menu #36 to "1200".

**IC-706MKIIG - If you are using the Data Port on this radio, then you must set menu #29 to "1200".

**IC-746PRO / IC-7000 - Some users have reported that this radio has a very sensitive Data Port, making power adjustments with the SignaLink USB's TX knob somewhat touchy.  If this is the case with your radio, then please click here for a simple solution to this problem.

**Mic audio is NOT muted on this radio.

##You will need to connect the SignaLink to the "Main" data port connection on this radio (not the "Sub" port).

Notes
IC-756PRO users should use digital mode "D-USB" or "D-LSB".

**Some customers have reported that the IC-746 (early model only) does NOT mute the Mic when keyed from the Accy Port.  If this is the case with your radio, then you will need to turn the radio's Mic Gain down and/or unplug the microphone.

**Due to the design of the IC-746PRO, this jack does NOT support VHF operation.  If you want to operate both HF and VHF, then you'll need to use the 6-pin mini-DIN Data Port instead.

**IC-746PRO users should use "USB/LSB Data" mode (not regular USB/LSB).

IC-820H users need to set the Modulation Input Sensitivity switch to "Low", and the Baud Rate Selection switch to "AMOD".

 

13-pin DIN Accessory Port Connector (use SLUSB13I, SL1+13PI or SLCAB13I)

Notes
For VHF operation on the IC-706 and IC-706MKII you will need to move the PTT jumper to Pin #4.

For VHF/UHF operation on the IC-706MKIIG and IC-7000, you should turn the following menu item to OFF:

Item #30 for IC-706MKIIG

Item #20 for IC-7000

This will force the radio to use the same PTT pin for all bands so you will not need to change the SignaLink's jumper settings.

**The IC-718 does NOT mute the Mic jack when using the 13-pin Accy Port, so you will need to turn the Mic Gain down.

**The IC-7000 does NOT mute the Mic jack when using the 13-pin Accy Port, so you will need to turn the Mic Gain down, or use the 6-pin Mini Din Data Port instead.

**Some customers have reported that the new IC-7100 doesn't mute the microphone jack, so you will need to turn the Mic Gain down, or use the 6-pin Mini Din Data Port instead.

 

24-pin DIN Accessory Port Connector - Tigertronics does not manufacture a cable for the ICOM 24-pin Accessory Port connector, but you can easily build one using our un-terminated radio cable (p/n SLCABNC).  To build your cable, simply wire it straight-through for pin numbers 1-8 (Pin #1 to Pin #1, Pin #2 to Pin #2, etc.).  Note that your cable MUST wired straight-through or the jumper settings shown below will NOT work, and you might DAMAGE YOUR RADIO OR THE SIGNALINK!

Power is not available on any 6-pin mini DIN Data Port, so you will need to use external power for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

**Only European models of the TM-271 and TM-271A have the 6-pin mini-DIN Data Port.  All other models will need to use the RJ-45 Mic cable.  

 

13-pin DIN Accessory Port Connector (use SLUSB13K, SL1+13PK or SLCAB13K) Our 13-pin cable works with ALL Kenwood radio's that have a 13-pin Accessory Port, however there are two possible jumper settings.  If your radio is not listed in Figure 1 or Figure 2, then you will need to try both jumper settings to determine which PTT configuration your radio requires. We suggest that you try the settings in Figure 1 first. Your radio will NOT be damaged if you install the PTT jumper using the wrong configuration - you just won’t be able to transmit!  After you have installed the jumpers, be sure to set the sound card audio levels as outlined in the SignaLink manual. If you do not set the levels correctly, then the SignaLink may not transmit, and you might mistake the problem for incorrect jumper settings.  Note that external power is required for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

Figure 1

Figure 2

Notes

 

This configuration is the most common and works with early Kenwood radios such as the TS-140, TS-450S, TS-850, TS-870 and TS-950. Some newer radios such as the TS-570D, TS-590S, TS-990 and TS-2000/X also use these settings.

 

This configuration is less common and is used by some newer radios (TS-690 for example) and some older radios such as the TS-440.  These settings are identical to those in Figure 1, except for the PTT jumper, which has been replaced by a diode module (supplied with cable).

TS-2000 users should set menu item 50E to Main, and 50F to 1200 Baud.  Menu 50B can be used to increase the radio's power output if it is too low, and menu 50C can be used to adjust the Receive Audio level..  We suggest that you change these menu items even if they already appear to be set correctly (set 50F to 9600, and then back to 1200, etc.).

TS-570 users should set Menu #33 to 1 or 2 (a setting of zero will result in no transmit power).  Menu #34 should be set at 4-5 and can be increased to provide more Receive Audio if needed.

TS-940 users need to use the jumper settings shown in figure 1, except for the PTT jumper.  The PTT jumper should be connected to pin #4 instead of pin #3.

TS-440 users please note that your radio's Mic Gain control will affect your power output.  We suggest setting this control to 50% and then adjust it as needed so that the SignaLink's TX knob can be used to adjust the power output properly.

Power is not available on this connector, so you will need to use external power for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

Notes
Power is not available on this connector, so you will need to use external power for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

**On the FT-920, the AFSK/FSK switch MUST be set to AFSK, and you must be in "Data" mode (push the front panel "Data" button).  The Mic Gain control appears to affect the operation of the Packet jack, so we suggest setting this to 50% and then adjusting as needed.. 

**The FT-1000MPMKV and FT-1000MKV Field MUST be in "Packet" mode (NOT usb!) for digital operation.  For PSK31 or other "USB" digital modes, you'll need to set your radio's "User Mode" (selection 8-6) to "PS31U". This will configure the radio to look at the Packet jack and use the correct side band for PSK31. For more detailed information on this (including settings for other modes), see "Digital Modem Operation" in your radio manual.

**The 5-pin DIN jack on this radio supports only FM and LSB, which are not compatible with the majority of digital modes.  We recommend connecting the SignaLink to the Mic jack instead.

##Detailed setup information for this radio is now available thanks to Wade Bolling, W5ERX. Please click here for details.

Notes
For special signals requiring un-filtered "discriminator" audio, you will need to move the "SPKR" jumper to pin #4 (9600 baud output).  Note that some newer radios do NOT provide this output, so this may not apply to your radio.

Power is not available on any 6-pin mini DIN Data Port, so you will need to use external power for the SignaLink Model SL-1+.

**FT-450 - Some users have reported that this radio has a very sensitive Data Port, making power adjustments with the SignaLink USB's TX knob somewhat touchy.  If this is the case with your radio, then please click here for a simple solution to this problem.

**FT-950 - Some users of this radio have reported that the Notch Filter is turned on after a hard reset.  If you see a "hole" in your waterfall display, then please make sure that your Notch Filter is turned OFF.

**The 6-pin mini-DIN Data Port on the
FT-840 and FT-847 supports FM and LSB only.  It may also function only on VHF (not HF).  Because of this, we recommend using the Mic jack, or on the FT-847, the Data I/O jack (see below).

**The FTM-350 requires Yaesu's CT-141 adapter to convert from it's 8-pin mini-DIN connector to a standard 6-pin mini-DIN.  This adapter should be available from any authorized Yaesu dealer.

##The FTM-400 requires Yaesu's CT-164 adapter to convert from it's 10-pin mini-DIN connector to a standard 6-pin mini-DIN.  This adapter should be available from any authorized Yaesu dealer.

 

FT-847 ONLY - 3.5mm Stereo "Data I/O" jack (use SLUSBNC, SL1+NC or SLCABNC)

NOTE:  This jack works great on HF, but it does not appear to work on VHF/UHF.  For VHF/UHF operation,
you'll need to use the 8-pin Mic jack, or the 6-pin mini-DIN Data Port.

For HF operation on the FT-847, we recommend that you attach the SignaLink to the "Data I/O" jack.  This jack works
for virtually all sound card digital and voice modes, and will let you keep your microphone plugged into the radio.
We do not stock a cable for this jack however, so you will need to build your own using one of our un-terminated
radio cables (p/n SLCABNC).  The picture below shows how to wire this cable and install the jumper wires.

The values shown below for R1 and C1 have been used for years in a number of our products.
You can use these values, or those shown in the FT-847 manual.  Both will work just fine.
