Homebrew interface from PC to Alinco DX-70TH now working. Looks like the rig is a tad off frequency though, i kinda suspected this from voice QSOs. Will carry out netting procedure later. For time being, im now beaconing on 20m.

The new interface is very simple, but has some 'odd' features. For one, the rigs microphone now plugs into the interface, not the rig. This is good as the mic socket on the rig is hidden behind the fascia and is a pain to get to. The other feature is a through connection from the serial cable to the FRG-100 CAT interface.

HF Tx antenna unavailable.

Rx only. Equipment FRG-100 + 100ft random wire.

Current unattended automatic monitoring of 10m
