I am looking at getting into the "digital" age but am confused about sound card interfaces.

I have been looking at the SignaLink and RIGBlaster NOMIC.

My current stn is an old Yaesu FT301 (4 pin mic)and dipoles.  The computer an old 166. I think my mouse is a serial mouse.

As someone just wanting to get started with digital communicate (and not wanting to spend too much) I'm open to suggestions.

Any suggestions or recommendations will be welcome.

Tnx
Jeff

Of course home brew is the least expensive.  Not really much to the interface.  A Transistor switch off the serial port and a resistor audio pad to the mike.  On the ones you mentioned they should all do what is needed, pick the one that best suits your budget and needs.  Lot of the soundcard software has a simple interface drawing. With the computer you have might want to stay with DigiPan or Hamscope.  The soundcard mode software that has more features than those take at least a 200 mHz CPU.
