I decided that I really wanted to run FSK with the FT-2000D, so I built a cable for my Hal DXP38 and hooked it up.  For everyday DXing I need to get a terminal program up and running.  The HAL came with DXPWin and it seems to do what I need.  I manually enter into Logger32 the station info.  It works well and the Macros are not too hard to set up.  Not many needed for DXing.  But certain characters received trigger a hardware beep from the computer.  That little buzzer that all computers seem to have inside for BIOS messages and the like.  Short of clipping the wires to that buzzer, anyone know how to stop DXPWin from triggering the beep?  When the band is busy it can get quite annoying.  I do not see any options in the Windows XP Control Panel for the hardware buzzer.

My other option seems to be using a different digital terminal.  Like the one in Logger32.  But I haven't figured out how to get the macros setup in that yet.

When contesting, I use N1MM Logger, and for it the digital window works just fine.  Macros are easier to figure out.  But I only use N1MM when contesting.  It seems like such a pain to close Logger32, switch the necessary Port configurations over to N1MM Logger just to make a DX contact.

Having said all this, yes, it was easier to just use AFSK and the SignaLink USB with MMTTY.  And I still use it as a second decoder, but not for transmitting when in the FSK mode.

Tnx es 73
