Only choice for Apple users, happens to be great too.  Time owned: more than 12 months
I run Apple computers and always have. It can be frustrating at times in the HAM world finding things that will work with Apples, let alone something that really shines with them.

I was in Dayton a couple of years ago and happened by the MicroHam booth and heard someone mention Apple computers. Stood there listening to Joe for a few minutes and walked away with a DK. So glad I did.

I have run the box with my FT817 for almost 2 years now and never had any problems at all.

I just bought an IC-7000 and ordered a cable for that from MicroHam and same thing, it just works.

Should be sold as a Noise generator  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I gave it a 0 because there were no negative numbers to pick. This unit should be sold as a noise generator or comb is so bad it is unusable with ICOM 781 and FLEX 5000a with WSJT. Sales/service tells you it is your computer NEVER their stuff...but I have confirmed it is the DigiKeyer...performing all the tests they suggest....yet they insist it is my 1 week old Dell (and 2 other computers I tried and a laptop also)...guess I only own bad computers. They say send it back and they will check it BUT 100% of the time it is never bad....and it will be the computer (why bother sending it back).

The Best  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've been using this interface for over a year and it is the best I have seen. The quality of the equipment is well beyond excellent and the service from the US rep, Joe Subich W4TV sets the standard everyone else should meet.

If your tired of dealing with multiple serial ports and less than quality equipment look no further, the Digi Keyer is the answer.

I have had no compatibility problems and have been able to set up all of my favorite software to work through this interface.

If you have questions, a quick answer is only an e-mail away.

The Best!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Excellent interface. I have had mine for 10 months and have used it on my 746 Pro and 756 Pro 3. Works great and is first class. Why would you buy anything else.

Excellent interface  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This interface card it's wery well buildt starting from the PCB and ending to the hi-quality interconnecting cables.
Set it for your favourite rig (jumpers included), install the software and go ON AIR.
Knobs to adjust TX and RX levels are very convenient and lets you adjust immediately the right amount of signal you desire.

Audio functionality is provided via the internal sound card, so you can forget to plug the audio minijack to your soundblaster. Very convenient.

Software provided (device router) may looks little complicate at the beginning, but in reality adds great flexibility to your operations.

Last, but not least, there is the automatic firmware update procedure.

Jozef OM7ZZ provides outstanding real-time support, even in "strange" hours. All my respect and my appreciacion for a kind of customer support that should be the reference for all the manufacturers.

I tried this interface in conjunction with my FT-817 and my Miracle Antenna but I experimented RF return that made fail the experiment.

This is not my first computer interface and it's definitely the best one I own.

Excellent quality and super support.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The DigiKeyer is an impressive bit of engineering and an incredibly flexible addition to my station. Even more impressive than the DigiKeyer itself is the support offered by Microham USA. The US support representative responded to my email questions quickly and worked with me patiently and persistently for several days (including a Saturday and Sunday) to resolve a connection problem that turned out to be my radio. Though I have been an active ham since 1961, and have owned lots of gear over the years, Microham's support is easily the best I have ever seen. Microham has earned my admiration and loyalty.

Great product!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Excellent quality product that delivers. The included rig specific cable kit makes set up a breeze. The front panel control for transmit level is a blessing. Works great with HRD and PSK31Deluxe.

A delight!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
There is not much that I can add to what has already been said. I gave myself one as a "Christmas present" and am using it with MixW version 2.18 software. Setup was smooth. The well-written manual comes on a cd. I found it convenient to print a hard copy.

Excellent Product!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After reading the reviews on eHam I purchased one from microHam USA. Quick shipment, excellent packaging, cables are pro quality.

> Setup was a breeze
-- The included microHam USB Router is foolproof and makes the whole interface easy to setup, easy to add other software, etc.

> Support
-- I sent an email to Joe at about midnight and the next morning at 0500 I was blown away to find a response from Joe including a file attachment that was specifically for my rig, keyer, and logger32 software

-- The support is by far the absolute best I've seen in 28 years of being a ham!

I'm impressed with the way the new interface works. It made all the difference in the world with the on board sound card versus my PC sound card. Weak signals are now easily copied.

"GREAT"  Time owned: months
For a none english speaking ham it was a bit of strugle to understand the manual and settings.But after an è-mail from my true hero:W4TV Joe Subich who supported me with images how to do it right, up against my rig(Yaesu FT-1000D)it`s just fun using it.Must be one of the best interface on market.NOT CHEAP BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY IF YOU ASK ME.GO FOR IT !
