A microcontroller or a gate array is not a "full fledged computer", nor is

How can you guarantee what rig Paul is using?

Every modern rig has computer processing in it that digitizes both the 
incoming and outgoing signals for filtering, waveshaping, AGC, and other 
functions.  That doesn't have anything to do with WSJT-X, but the only 
difference is the mathematics applied to the signal processing.  I can 
guarantee that no matter what rig Paul is using his rig does what I 
said.  I never said that it did WSJT-X.

However, there is nothing that would prevent any manufacturer from 
implementing a subset of WSJT-X like FT8 within the rig ... just as 
several rigs can already handle PSK-31.
