    I've not tried Minideluxe, but I am running DM780 alone with SmartSDR. It works quite well. I am not using HRD or any CAT at this time.

    The HRD apps won't work directly with the F6K radios using SCAT (Smart Cat). However, DDUtil v3 has a special HRD Server built in that does work with the apps. If you wish to go that route please see the DDUtil v3 wiki at this link. http://k5fr.com/DDUtilV3wiki/index.php?title=Features#HRD_Apps For DDUtil questions there is a Yahoo group also. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DDUtil/

    Jim, how do you get the audio stream from the radio to DM780.

    I'm using a SignalLink USB for the physical connection through the ACC connector on the FlexRadio 6700. As I understand it a physical device must be used pending a revision of that software that supports the virtual cable environment used on the 1500, 3000, and 5000 machines.

    Steve: Using the DDUtil approach, does that interface DM780 without the need to have HRD open? Tnx de Arnie W8DU

    Yes, it does. That's the whole point.

    Yes, Minideluxe will connect to HRD Logbook allowing DM780 to be used. Of course, you still need an external interface (in my case SignaLink) for the audio. 73 John VE1CDD

    Jim: If you are not using any CAT, how are you accomplishing T/R changeover from DM780?

    Having grown up with real radios that glow in the dark and are stand alone receivers and transmitters and often home built this seems much more straightforward than all the CAT, whatever, that may be useful for integrated logging, turning a beam, etc., but just adds lots of complexity (and computer cycle overhead) to simply go from receive to transmit and back: 1) Use the 6700 ACC connector to connect to a SignalLink USB. 2) Configure the DM780 soundcard option for the USB audio input and output of the SignalLink USB. 3) Use the PTT function available on the ACC with the SignalLink USB. You're done.
