How do you feel the receive is compared to your icom r8500.scancapecod said:There are actually two discriminator taps. One for the main receiver, and one for the sub. I use "Packet 1" to drive an Opto DC-440 tone decoder. "Packet 2" is running Eric's Trunker port to Windows. Neat being able to use the radio in dual capacities at the same time. As I'll use it primarily for DX purposes, finding a CC on the main receiver, entering it into the sub so it'll decode the CC with Trunker (or UniTrunker if it's a 9600 baud system), and scrolling merrily along with the main receiver will be a super tool.
Your comment about Ham Radio Deluxe gives me the incentive to go download it and try it out. I've heard a lot of good things about it. I have an R8500 also but it's been completely a "hands on" receiver for me. Now that I have something that will work ideally with software I'll have to give it a whirl.
