    What kind of sound card are you running? I'll bet if you put that same signal on a panadapter, you'll only see the one...

    RR. And if you don't already use it, get JT-Alert. Let's you know where they're from, what you're missing, if you're worked them B4, what bands are busy, instant chat and many other benefits.

    Jim, onboard mobo Realtek ALC892

    Frank, I do use that, once someone sent me a text through it, freaked me straight out. Never have figured out how thats done.

    Yeah, the first chat box I saw (and it says HELLO) surprised me too!

    Right-click on the callsign you want to message, then left-click "Send Text Message to Callsign".

    But keep in mind, not everyone is using JT-Alert, so your message might end up in the ether.

    I think that was me lol

    And the onboard sound card works but you will experience more artifacts such as what you describe.

    I will have to check logs. I could buy a PCI sound card. Trying to figure how that would work out since I'm using an ANAN. Do you think a separate card would do better?

    I just remembered I have this critter sitting unopened in a closet. Bought it when I thought I was getting a K3 and LP-PAN. Could I use it?

    Plug it in and try it out :)

    I use a higher end USB sound card (Creativ Labs something or other... )

    17 was just fading here, thanks for the contact, Dave! The beam was aimed right at you for that -23 you gave me.

    Cool - K1JT is on your RX screen capture - and worked B4! :eek:

    I use JTAlert as well - there's no way to easily see who you've worked, and who you need without it.

    ON6SAT must be on every day - I seem to run in to him every time I get on JT65.
