Re: Set Up to use JS8Call with Elad Fdm Duo

Good advice from Charlie. Get FT8 working with WSJT-X first as
there are more users out there to ask for help.
I had never tried JS8Call, so I checked my setup with WSJT-X first, then downloaded and installed JS8Call with all defaults.
Set up looks like this:
I have TXIN on the DUO menus set to AUTO and PTT set to IN+RTS.
When I hit Test CAT, it worked and went green (my default COM port is COM3, discovered the way Charlie suggested). Then I hit Test PTT, the rig went on to transmit and the button went red.
For the audio streams, I normally use Virtual Audio Cable wiht
SW2 on receive, but for this test, I picked the FDM-DUO audio
device on TX and on RX
I set the DUO menus for AGC OFF, AGC GAIN 1 and AUX VOL about 6
to get the level in JS8Call somewhere in the 30-40dB region on
band noise. I also messed with the gain on the Windows audio
device for the DUO to drop the gain a bit
Seems to work fine.
Much simpler for me to use SW2 and Virtual Audio cable as I have multiple receive programs listening at the same time to the virtual device and don't want to playh with JS8Call, but it looks like it is just the same to configure with the DUO as WSJT-X
