I have been looking for some software that will record off the sound card. The software should
1) be able to allow me to select recording quality (not very high ---- since I will be recording HF/VHF radio)
2) display time - either actual time recorded or relative time since the beginning of the recording session.  This is necessary to index key places in a recording so I can get back to it later.
3) basic VOX or dead time capability would be a nice to have IF it could work with #2 above.

I have been downloading and testing dozens of products from various shareware and $$ sites and have not found anything that does a good job with item 2.  Anyone know of a good program?  Shareware or $ware are all ok.

Have you looked at Audacity?

A popular program in radio broadcasting and small recording studios is Cool Edit Pro. The original manufacturer was bought out by Adobe a couple years ago and they discontinued the product.  Their new version is Adobe Audition 1.5 which I haven't used but assume they retained some or all of the original product features.  They offer a free trial you might want to test drive.

Cool Edit displays total time of a sound file along with real time display of current cursor position, plus time of each section you highlight for editing purposes. Hours, minutes and thousandths of a second.    

I also use Saw Studio for more demanding multi track sessions and last time I checked they offered a free demo too.  Mo bux to buy, however.

Never encountered a digital audio application that stops recording like a vox-operated cassette machine, so can't help you there.
