Sound card program setup instructions are now available

Detailed instructions for configuring some of the more popular sound card communication programs to work with the SignaLink USB are now available on our SignaLink Support Page.  We have also provided general setup instructions that can be used with virtually any sound card program to get it up and running with the SignaLink USB.

NEW SignaLink Plug & Play Jumper Modules

We have just added several new SignaLink "Plug & Play" jumper modules to fit a variety of radios including Yaesu, ICOM and Kenwood 8-pin round Mic jacks, the Elecraft K3 (rear panel), Yaesu 5-pin DIN Accy/Packet jacks, and Ten-Tec 5-pin DIN Accy Port Jacks.

These modules plug into the SignaLink in place of the supplied jumper wires that you would normally use to configure the unit.  This makes installation or swapping radios much easier, and completely eliminates the possibility of installing the jumper wires incorrectly!

The SignaLink USB works GREAT in Linux

Many of our customers have confirmed that the SignaLink USB works very well with the Linux Operating System, using a variety of programs including fldigi, and gMFSK.  One of our customers, Ken Hopper - N9VV, has written a nice article about his experience installing and operating the SignaLink USB in Linux.  We would like to express our thanks to Ken for sharing this with us, and to the authors of fldigi and gMFSK, W1HKJ - David Freese and OH2BNS - Tomi Manninen, for their tireless effort in developing and updating these programs.

NOTE:  The Linux operating system is not officially supported by our chipset manufacturer, or Tigertronics.  We will do our best to help you get your SignaLink working in Linux if you call for Tech Support, but please understand that we do not run this OS ourselves, so support for it will be very limited.  If you are not familiar with installing and configuring software/hardware in Linux, then we strongly suggest that you use a different OS with your SignaLink.
