PSK31 on a budget.

I googled a bit and found that you need an interface to connect the PC to the rig.

so I bought a kit, and built it, and when I connected it to the PC it killed the USB circuit.

Oh Poo

so i then decided to do it the easy way.

a cable from the AF out to the sound card mic socket.

a cable from the speaker out on the soundcard to the mic plug.

a cable from a switch to the ptt socket.

download some free software, tune to the correct frequency, switch to USB and THAT's IT.

after a week,250 or so QSOs  35 DXCCS worked, mainly on 20m but a couple on 17m and one on 40m.
