    Kenwood TS-2000 - Fldigi, WSJT-x and others - SignalinkUSB - RS-232 serial cable and hamlib for PTT and control (mode, freq, etc) - Linux (Fedora and CentOS). it all works quite nicely together.

    Fldigi also does CW quite nicely.

    K2CQW - thanks for the info. I’ll shoot you an email.

    KA7O - sounds like a good deal. I’m not running Linux but at least that gives me a lead on everything. I just got my SignaLink in today. Only thing I’m waiting for is my antenna and a good day to put it up. Then I’ll see if I can put all this together. LOL!

    I’ll have to wait to email ya until I convert my account to my callsign. I’m not considered a ham member at the moment and I’ve been waiting on my vanity callsign approval by the FFC so I just have to ask QRZ to just change it once instead of twice. LOL!

    The difficulty with CW is the better signals are generally put out by old timers who aren't interested in sending CW with a computer. New hams rarely have the big yards and mature trees that would allow them to easily install an antenna that would put out a good signal. I've found that if I turn on the amplifier and use my 8-element RX array I have no trouble finding folks to talk to on 80 CW. The amp adds about an S unit to how loud I sound. The RX array allows me to hear an S unit or two better than most stations.

    FT8 works really well once you have everything set up properly.
