Any opinions as to which transceiver would be best for a stand alone PSK31 rig through the transceivers display. 7410 , K3, others? Thanks

The 7410 is not capable of doing PSK31 standalone.  It can only receive RTTY.

You may be confusing it with the 7600, 7700, and 7800 which can all do RTTY and PSK31 (both transmit and receive) standalone.

The 7410 DOES have a USB port which provides rig control AND sound-card emulation with one cable, computer required. Just letting you and others know.

It seems to me that PSK31 (or even RTTY) would be pretty limiting when operated directly from the radio. Very small display, no waterfall, and probably no macros. I don't know if I'd make that a major consideration in radio selection.

Easy One:THe PSK-20

The Small Wonder Labs $100 20 m QRP materpiece transceiver kits released almost exactly at the same time Slip Teller released
his much anticipated ann wildly received DIGIPAN. With a nice Wndows GUI, "click & copy". PSK-31 took the world by storm.

THis is by far the bext "Stand Alone" PSk transceiver.

CN88 op knows how strong his signal is hitting other receivers by using JT65 Logger like the rest of us. If you see you are banging in a -3 everywhere, then it is likely you are running too much power for the conditions. The nature of JT65 is that DX signals are very often below visually detectable levels. Using a narrow filter while hunting for DX means you will probably miss 90% of the signals out there. Of course, you can be the one calling CQ and run your narrow filter, waiting for other stations to answer. If CN88 has a waterfall full of 100w + Yagis blowing his front end out, he probably won't see you. Unless you run 100w & yagi. And he has narrow filter on. Exactly on your signal.

Easier for the software to sort out 10 slightly overlapping low power signals than it is 4 gigawatt laser beacons spread out across 2.4khz reducing the entire segment to black with 4 big blotchy white smears.

Acquired the IC-7410...use it for SSB, AM & digital modes...love the receive on it...

I use the Signalink USB for digital modes.  Use the ACC port (13-pin) on the back-side of the 7410.  Still getting famaliar with all-the-operations of this unit.  The rig receives all digital signals, but just tested transmitting.  Works great !! Cheesy
