Does anyone have jumper layout tat you use for this radio?  I can't seem to get it to work very good at all.  CW translates very poorly and other modes are a wash as well although I'm listening, I haven't transmitted due to the spotty copy with hrd.

Thanks
Brian

I just used the layout labelled as "Typical Yaesu(R) RJ45 (8 wire) Modular mic connector radios" and it worked just fine.  It's the second one from the top on page 8 of the RIGblaster nomic manual.  For completeness:

PTT to 3
PTT GND to 2
MIC GND to 5
MIC to 4

No connections on GNDTIE, 1, 6, 7, or 8.

CW sent by humans generally translates poorly via computer.  Computers read computer generated stuff much better.  Just saying don't go by the CW decoding to tell if you really have a problem.

You don't say what software you're using. 

Try tuning to 14.070 / USB during the day.  With Digipan (or any other digital-mode software) you should see a bunch of railroad tracks with crossovers -- PSK31 signals.  If you can decode those, the "receive" signal path is working OK.

As the previous post says, software will only decode _strong_ CW signals with "perfect fists" -- paddle-sent, or machine-sent, code, with good signal/noise ratio.
