Hi John, congrats on your new friend! I got mine about 4 weeks ago!
I've designated "User 1" settings for Phone and "User 2" for Digital 
modes, that makes for an easy shift from one to the other.

Mostly I work JT65A, WSPR and PSK31 at low power.
I've connected my Soundcard interface (a SignaLink USB) to the "AUX" 
Important settings:
AUX input gain       40
TX Audio Src          AUX
Bandwidth             1800
Line Out Src           Main
Line Out Level        Low
AGC                        Off
RF Gain                 100
ATTN                     12dB (normally)

It works very well, with signals in WSPR mode down to -33dB decoded

PWR setting varies but from "1" to "25" mostly.

Vy 73 de OZ1PIF/5Q2M, Peter
