Hi,

I get tired of sitting at the radio calling CQ using my voice. I recorded my voice on my computer calling CQ. I play the audio file via window media player through my SignaLink USB to my TS-480SAT radio.

Is there some better, more automated, way to do this? Ideally, software would play my voice every 20 seconds and beep the computer if the S-meter jumps up to alert me that someone is responding. I have the TS-480SAT connected via RS-232 to the computer to monitor frequency and S-meter.

WinWarbler, the digital mode component of the free-ware DXLab Suite, includes a phone voice keyer driven by macros that can be configured to auto-repeat. There is currently no "terminate on S-meter jump" capability, however.

With all due respect, if you are calling CQ for that long and not getting any response, you might want to:

1) Check if your radio is working at all and if it is...
2) Determine if propagation supports communications on that particular band at that particular time?

And as far as the S-meter thing, it is possible for signals to be readable without necessarily moving the S-meter.

Whats next prerecorded SSB QSO too? I mean no disrespect but it's a bit silly I think.

Try something like WSPR and you won't even need to be anywhere near the radio to complete a "QSO".
