So, I just was able to make my first Winlink over RF transmission using Digirig, Vara FM & my Anytone 578UViii Pro. Ive been chasing this concept for so long its not even funny. Anytones are not the best for digital modes unless you are talking DMR. I picked up the Digirig a week or so ago. The digirig was the easy part it’s pretty much plug & play but the software & settings were all greek to me. It took many long hours to work through it but I managed to unlock a new HAM skill & capability. I was able to finally get all of the software & settings configured to make it work. I’m beaming with joy right now. There was not much to go on out there regarding how to make this work with Anytones so I wanted to add something to the forum about it to help the next guy.
My Station Details:
-MacBook Air running a Windows 10 virtual machine.
-Anytone 578UViii Pro
settings to change… Radio Settings–>Hand Type–>Volt Detect.
-Anytone 878UVii Plus
settings to change… Radio Settings–>AnaSqLevel–>0
(very touchy about RF interference hanging the PTT in Tx so make sure you use quality cables & a USB Isolator).
Thanks for a great Product Digirig!
