Can anybody tell me why can't I hear my 1500 in my laptop speakers? Works great with headphones plugged into the 1500

Not the way it was designed, radio audio is only available from the front headphone jack as line level. You can either run a physical stereo connection from the headphone jack to your line in on the laptop, or you jimmy the VAC option button using Soundmapper as output and enable the VAC button. Downside is this mono audio, volume slider will not be able to control audio level, and squelch will not function. This last option is not recommended by Flex.

Enjoy the radio,
Dudley
