I used sbdvp for years with TR Log.  The documentation is a little obscure, 
but it works fine, and once you have it figured out, it is easy to use and 
requires no attention once it is set up.  You just go through your normal 
sequence of keystrokes with TR and it plays the appropriate .wav file.  I 
used a Creative Soundblaster 16, and as I recall the software is pretty 
much limited to that sound card.

To answer your specific questions, the sound card in the computer that runs 
TR is used, and the wav files are stored there.  You'll need to build up 
some sort of interface between the sound card line out jack and the 
transceiver mike or line audio input.
