Ok. First I have a PC with Windows 11 64 bit. It is not finding a driver for the Silicon Power USB to Uart. Is this a known issue? I tell it to search and it can’t find any. Certainly don’t want any unsupported driver to install.
Second, with WSJT-x it receives fine using the GX16 cable. However, even without using WSTX-x, if I transmit I get a severe rumbling sound while transmitting (the GX16 bugs out to being wired correctly). The sound varies with RF power, so it sounds like RFI as a guess. Now I have a lot of equipment I can use including a RigPI for remote operation and have not had to deal with RFI issues in any of the equipment. This noise happens all the way down to a couple watts. Is digirig very RFI prone?
If I stick an 1/8 headphone into the digirig, will it work to let me listen to it? At present I have nothing hooked up to the rig connection port. The only connection is the GX16 cable to the digirig and then a USB cable from the digirig to the PC.
I can turn the sound output all the way down to zero on the digirig sound card and I still get the noise.
Id like to connect the headphone to be sure that this noise is not being created when not transmitting which would point the finger at a bad digirig. But I suspect it’s RFI driven, but if it happens at 4 watts, I’m not sure I’ll ever get it quiet at full power. So might have to return it and just use my sound card which I was trying to avoid.
