Tried PSK-31 and AFSK and all works perfectly. Sound board output thru
isolation transformer to AUX Audio input (nice to have premade Din plug
cable). Set AUX gain at "4" and audio input to AUX only. Orion audio output
directly to sound card line input - perfect match. Did not have to adjust
anything on the computer. Brought up MixW and all modes worked well. Tried
MMTTY and all OK. Use serial port PTT from the computer software (set DTR
line to PTT/CW). Nice and linear and got good IMD reports on PSK. Oh - no
Speech Processor.

Computer software CW keying. Use the Serial Port set for PTT/CW on the DTR
line and full QSK in the software and use the Orion Black lead on Din cable
for both PTT and CW keying. Nice feature on Ten Tec rigs. Works great. Now
can't wait for the next major CW contest.
