Can anyone help me with some advice? I was using a nice Toshiba laptop on all digital modes. I was running Windows 7 - 32 bit. That laptop crashed beyond repair (It was old anyway, started on XP pro). I just received a new Lenovo with 8 gigs of memory and 1 Tb hard drive. The new computer is operating on Windows 7 - 64 bit. I am trying to use digital modes with my old reliable Tigertronics usb interface and Yaesu FT-990. I can hear everything, and the waterfall is working, but cannot get the radio to transmit. I am using the same radio and interconnect cables. The programs seem to work the same, but no keying to the radio. This is happening in every digital mode. Any ideas? Thanks - Gary WS5J (new call)

See http://www.tigertronics.com/windows7.htm and see if that helps.

From that link:
"Note that we have tested only the 32 bit versions of Windows 7."

You are going to need a 64-bit driver for 64-bit Windows7. According to the Tigertronics web page the chip manufacturer doesn't yet support 64-bit.

My W7/x64 laptop installed a driver for the SignaLink USB's sound card automatically; no special driver was needed.

Because you're able to receive, I suspect there's something wrong in your setup.  In particular:

 - Check your digital modes program to confirm that it's using the USB sound card in the SignaLink for both transmitting and receiving.

 - Check the playback volume control for the USB sound card to make sure you're actually outputting sufficient audio to the SignaLink USB (if the volume's not high enough, the PTT line won't be actuated).

I assume your SignaLink's front-panel tx volume pot setting is OK, but check it anyway.
