K2 FT8

N4FN
  I have recently added to my K2 the Fixed Audio Output kit that Dave
W8FGU now has made available.
I wonder if any K2 user has used the K2 with either a Signal Link or the
Rig blaster Advantage. I would appreciate any feedback.
Thanks

I used mine with a SignaLink for JT65 and JT9 several years ago. No issues. Shouldn't be any with FT8 either. Pulled audio from the K2 using W3FPR's schematic, and fed audio into the mic input. No issues that I remember. Remember you can't run full power in those modes unless you like replacing finals, and follow Don's recommendation for adjusting ALC.

Hi Bill,

Absolutely!  We notify all customers prior to shipment to reconfirm everything
on on backlogged items like this.

You also can add options then or at any time.

Eric

I've used my K2 to work WSJT-X modes for a year now, using the external
speaker audio out, and a cable connected to the mic for audio in.
They connect to a $10 USB soundcard from Amazon.    The rig is connected
using the AUXBUS serial cable, to a USB adapter to the computer, which
runs DXLabs Commander.    WSJT-X is has Commander set as the rig.

Works great for under $35.00, cost of audio cables, soundcard, and USB
serial adapter (FTDI chip).
