I seem to be having problems consistently being able to transmit on PSK31. I alway have to set the Digipan transmiter configuration for volume & wave to max to get any transmit signal. Even then sometimes while transmitting the KX3 stops transmitting and Digipan locks up. I would appreciate getting information from anyone with the same setup and what settings are used for the KX3's AF and mic gain as well as settings for the signalink. Also, any other KX3 menu settings that I may have missed.

Thanks. Alan KZ6B

Thanks, Zack. I will give that a try but I also thought this forum might produce someone with the same setup.

Hello KC1YC here,

I am new to PSK31. Have an FT-817ND set on full Power. SWR fine into AlexLoop (indoors). Transmits fine with Mike and ssb. SignaLink between rig and computer. Receives fine, On transmit, rig is triggered (transmit led comes on) but power is nil on external meter (normal indication when using Mic).

That indicates that you don't have audio on the headphone or speaker output making its way to the radio. You might try listening for it--disconnect your rig temporarily and use a computer speaker or headphones to hear it. A computer typically has more than one volume control window--you may need to hunt around to find the right window.

Once you get that sorted out, the next step is making sure you have the proper connection from the computer headphone output to the mic input of the rig.
