I just got on PSK31 with my FT-1000MP MK V and Digipan. Using Tigertronics SignaLink USB interface. Seems there's a lot of info here and there (some conflicting)on setting up Digipan. Can someone help?

I have Digipan Sample Rate Corrections set as follows: TX: 10000. RX:10000. Is that correct?

I also set my xcvr on 14.069.50 so waterfall freq. readout is correct. Is that OK?

Is about 40 watts out still OK these days? I see some guys claiming 100 watts plus needed for condx.

Maybe this is really dumb, but can someone walk me thru on setting up macros with Digipan.

I am primarily a DXer, if that affects things. Do DXpeditions generally use split on PSK31. Any settings changes needed as a result?

You can e-mail me directly at wayne@longshortstories.com if that is better.

Thanks guys!

Hi Wayne,

take a look at the psk31 series on Utube
from Randy K7AGE

it is best if everyone adds comments to your post,
that way others can learn by reading it here.

25-40 W is just fine for most qso,
K7AGE shows you how to adjust the radio and soundcard
settings for almost no ALC level on the radio meter.

the DX stations I have worked did not use split.

take a look at this for the correction value

Hi Wayne,

I printed out the Digipan document. It helped a lot for working with macros. I also have the Signalink USB and found it a very good interface.

Someone pointed to the YouTube videos for PSK, they are a great help also.

We are close enough that perhaps we can do some testing on 10m for you to get your feet wet so to speak. If so, we can setup a sked some evening.

The setting you have is wrong. Off the top of my head its a figure like 11725 so that needs changing.

PSK users don't use split frequencies, it can be done, but it isn't

The usual power is 30 watts and NO ALC ! Take a look at the KK7UQ Digipan Help sheets,all the help you need is on those sheets. Just Google KK7UQ
