    Hi Everyone -

    I'm trying to get on the air using digital modes on my KX2. I have everything hooked up properly as per the manual (using 2x audio cables to connect the Phones and Mic jacks + the KXUSB for control) and I'm in Data A mode. However, when I go to transmit from fldigi it says "Connect Data In To Mic Jack." I was hoping to be able to use my onboard sound at least to get it up and running. Am I getting this error because I'm not using a dedicated sound card? I've tested the output from fldigi using headphones and it is definitely "transmitting" from the PC, but for some reason the radio isn't picking it up. Thanks!

    I found the answer! From the manual:
    In AF data modes (DATA-A, AFSK-A), an external audio
    source must be plugged into the mic jack. This disconnects
    the internal mic.

    For some reason my KX2 isn't sensing the audio. I can work FT8 if I use the normal USB mode, but I am having problems in the Data mode. I suspect that my audio level is too low. Time to experiment.
