People tell me Signalink USB works with RPi3 and Raspbian.
that thing looks like a dumpster fire in a small box
If you open the case, the usb cable unplugs and is a standard cable.
so they took a usb sound card and put some optos on it......looks like crap and the usb cable in the back gave me a good laugh. We have a saying about mfj around my family "Mighty Fine Junk". 100$ for this is a joke.....that is about 25-30$ in parts and some time on a case ....
I believe the joke is on you, MFJ has been around for 30+ years selling products for Ham radio, so what have you accomplished with your life?
I was thinking about getting into the Digital modes. But now I kinda think I'll pass. Yeah "FREE SPEACH " and all,
but if this is any indication of how those Modes are ....Forget it! Remember new folks and poor folks and old folks on a fixed income read this stuff too. Negative and counter productive comments hurt the hobby. This old man LIKES MFJ and has for over 30 yrs.
Not all of their stuff is Perfect, but will do in a pinch. How about telling us what make and model you use and why and compare it to this new one.
just my thoughts ......thanks and 73 all.
PSK31 is pretty cool!! You can load a couple of macros (pre canned text) and dump all the ad nauseam onto some one else who intern dumps their macro file onto you.....It was fun for a while, however my attention span is on par with that of a 2 year old and now it does nothing for me.
If people are happy to spend that much on this go for it ....I just gave my 2 cents and a bit of a joke no need to get all nasty with me about it. Junk for 5 years or 30 is still junk. I would tell any ham to build one or buy a used signal link before I would suggest MFJ, you don't have to agree.
Just reflecting your actions.
I'm confused as to how my comments could be taken as personal attacks but that's fine good luck with fishing for more reactions. I'll also add if people take comments made about a peace of gear made by a company as a reflection of the mode...other than that being short sighted I'm at a loss for words.
