My next mini-project

Just found this link to a homebrew USB interface for digital modes.  This is just the ticket for helping me build my shack.  I am using a modern laptop with only 1 serial port and I want to save that for my FT-847 CAT port.    I also can’t see paying $99 for a commercial interface.

I have build a lot of soldered kits over the years, but at some point I want to learn proper circuit board creation techniques.  This is a pretty simple circuit so I should be able to use this opportunity to learn how to do proper circuit prototyping.

I just ordered 4 (!) of the sound cards referred to in the article off of eBay.  Total cost with shipping?  Less than USD $8.

Great work G4ILO!
