Hello all! I am a HAM operator from (windy) Jupiter, Florida and I'm think of buying the AOR ARD-9800 digital interface with the optional SSTV board. Does anybody have any experiences on this equipment they would like to share? Does the converter work well? Do others use it or are operators very few and far between? Thank you!!

This is a digital slow scan device, and to be honest, looks like it may be proprietary.  IOW, the other guy would have to be using one, too.  Personally, I'd get or make a simple transformer interface, then download both MMSSTV and DIGITRX from the net.  These two will get you on SSTV on both the modes I've heard on 20M with little to no expense.

The AOR unit is primarily designed for digital voice. It does have the capability to send pictures via digital. I don't think the units are compatible with any other mfgs equipment or any of the sound card SSTV modes.

Okay, guys!
 Have any of you actually USED the ARD-9800? I know that the digital SSTV isn't compatible with other digital SSTV formats and that you need quite a strong signal-strength the actually decode the digital voice and SSTV signal but what about actual use? How 'bout it?
