Digi QSO!

I received a new USB Soundcard for my laptop in the mail today and decided to have a try on PSK31 tonight. I struggled a bit to get CAT PTT from FLDIGI to work with my K3/10 but after some googling I found a rig.xml from Julian G4ILO that worked. I have a lot of QRM in my shack and only an indoor magnetic loop antenna so I was amazed when I found out I could see a lot of stations in the waterfall. I decided to answer a CQ on 40m from E74QA and was exited when Eno from Cazin in Bosnia-Herzegovina came right back to me. This is actually not my first PSK31 qso as I had two QSOs back in October 2007.


  1. I shall look out for you on my waterfall, Mads. If you don't mind I will also put in a plug for my own program, KComm, which I wrote specifically to work with the K3 (and K2.) It has a built in PSK capability, or can act as a front-end for Fldigi (with better logging.) It supports the K3's built in CW, PSK31 and RTTY modems as well.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Julian! I have now downloaded Kcomm and will test it with fldigi. 73! Mads, la1tpa
