I tried the first also. Getting SBDVP to run right was frustrating, but
I finally managed. My logging confuser is the very old 486-33 our
youngest son used in college about a dozen years ago, and I had to set
up a RAM disk for the .wav files to get it all to work. Off the hard
drive, the audio played erratically.
The two major problems were:
1. Getting acceptable .wav files recorded. Getting rid of background
noise, getting enough bass into it, and keeping extraneous hum out.
2. Getting the audio into the radio without hum and at the proper level.
I finally gave up, and since I generally operate only CW and some RTTY,
it's OK. Incidentally, an informal survey of DVK quality during last
year's SSB Sweepstakes seems to have indicated that 9 out of 7 DVK's are
essentially unintelligible :-)
