Re: Yaesu FT-991A and Fldigi

Can a FT-991A user send me the radio menu setup for using the internal
USB codec sound device. I've seen suggestions about using the USB serial

would use for FM.

Then I'm guessing in Fldigi you need the USB Codec set for both capture
and playback. Also, I'm guessing for DATA VOX you do not need any serial
port PTT checked. Also do any selections in Right channel need to be
