I never recommend user's to re-use the system's
built-in soundcard as OS updates always seem to mess with their
settings. Specifically, after updates, you can have your
OS system notification sounds sent out over the airwaves, have your
levels all screwed up, etc. It's just too inexpensive these days
not to buy a second sound device be it a cheap USB device all they
way up to devices like Signalink, RigBlaster Advantage, Timewave
Navigator, etc. Do yourself a favor and get a second sound
Next.. if you go the home brew approach, it was mentioned that the
EasyDigi is a good way to get audio and PTT line isolation. These
come from kits to ready-to-use versions:
As mentioned by others, devices like the Signalink, RigBlaster
Advantage, Timewave Navigator, etc also include isolation
transformers which limit the audio spectrum passed through them.
This can impact "high speed" modes on VHF/UHF such as 9600bps G3RUH
packet and possibly GMSK-based DStar. Beyond those high speed
modes, you won't have any issues with any HF modes at all.
As to how to do this step by step, there are LOTS of websites on the
web how to do this. Google it to get started and we can help fill
in the blanks when you have questions.

I can see where your confusion comes in. The FX9A uses a
3.5mm jack instead of a USB or Serial port. You'd need to use
some kind of interface between the radio and the computer.
-- Looks like the NOMIC rig blaster wants to connect to the
radio in place of the mic using an RJ-45 (keystone) type of
connector. I'd reach out to West Mountain Radio and see how
they say to connect this up.
I can see how you could scrap together an adapter cable
to make all of this work together.
When you plug the NOMIC into your computer, it should
show up as a sound device, so your digital mode apps should be
able to select it.
Let me know what you find out.

Not the Nomic model... it's a plain
interface as I recall. You have to go to the Advantage to
get internal sound.

"digital modes" (fldigi, WSJT-X suite) I got a
nomic rig blaster. Do I need usb sound card for
What are you trying to do with the Pi and
For rig control, you only need the Pi and
a suitable cable (USB or serial)
For "digital modes" (fldigi, WSJT-X
suite), if you rig doesn't have a built in
sound card, you'll need an external sound
device like a Signalink.

I'm a Newby to Raspberry PI. Take me step by
step to USB & easy Digi, & do I have
to have easy digi?
