Using the Tigertronics SignaLink from http://www.tigertronics.com
that I purchased for packet radio, and EchoLink, I have managed to successfully connect my ICOM VHF for VOIP operations. In a nut shell Packet around my area is BORING! just a bunch of monitoring stations and little traffic. So using the same theory as I was using with my packet setup this little SignaLink box works as a VOX interface between the PC and My radio. I did have to enable the built in delay in the SignaLink and still need to shorten the delay as much as I can. All in all this is working great! I use my normal EchoLink call KE7HDF and connect from work to my Link Node KE7HDF-L using EchoLink and BAM! I'm using my local simplex freq and annoying all my local buddies
**Audio Isolation in the SignaLink device is making the audio over the pc kinda quiet when trying to hear traffic received from radio to link.
**Delay circuit is adjustable and seems to be 3 seconds by default. in order to prevent my transmission from continuing for 3 seconds after I am done talking I need to lower that as much as I can. however need to balance so the radio does not bounce the keying when their is a pause in received audio from the internet. I'm going to shoot for 1-1.5 sec.
