Ok so I have only been licensed for 8 Months give or take a day and I love ham radio. I currently am operating a Yaesu FT-857D. I am looking into possibly trying out packet radio and or digipeat (sorry if these are the same). I have read that I am able to use my sound card on my computer to get this working. My question is can I use my radio and my computer sound card to get this working??? Would i be able to use a 3mm double ended headset jack from the radio to the computer to get this working?? Thanks again and 73's P.S. I am also looking into working the ISS and HO-68 while trying packet.. thanks again.
