I bought a new FT-1000MP Mark V Field last weekend and am just getting around 
to interfacing it via my homebrewed digital interface and homebrewed computer. 
For DSP software I use Hamscope v1.54 because it supports PSK31, MFSK16 and 

Using the supplied five pin packet male plug I soldered transceiver audio out 
to soundcard in at pin #4 (data out) and that works fine. I also soldered the 
PTT line from the computer to pin #3 and that keys the rig up fine. The problem 
is with soundcard audio out to transceiver audio in. I soldered that to pin #1 
(data in) and I get no or low audio in, even with the soundcard controls turned 
up to an acceptable level. So I presume that this is the wrong place for audio 
in to the 
transceiver. As far as I can see I either send audio in via the mic jack on the 
front of the rig which is unacceptable to me because of wear and tear on the 
male jack. Or I use RCA female "Patch" jack on the back of the rig, which is 
also unacceptable to me because it's tied to the mic jack on front and I would 
still have to unhook the MD-100 desk mic to prevent audio pick up.

Am I missing something? Also as far as menu settings, I went to 8-6 and set it 
up by selecting Easy-Set with the sub VFO knob and PS31-SU with the main VFO 
knob. I also tried PS31-U. 

Also any information on the location of the SMT resistor for 60 meter transmit 
capability would also be much appreciated.

Any help would be appreciated.
