Silent Play and Mac microphone for reciving HF FAX

Post by Jack Mo » Mon, 18 Apr 1994 00:04:02

Using the Radio Shack Silent Play set, I managed to connect my Drake R8
to my Mac LCII's microphone inlet without any extension cables and with
the computer in the next room.
I used the Drake R8 RCA line audio OUT to connect the Silent Play
transmitter, using the RCA to 1/8 inch mono patch cord and transmitter set
to transmit in mono.
I connected the receiver to Mac LCII's microphone inlet port, using the
stereo patch cord (1/8 inch plug to 1/8 inch plug) and setting the
receiver to receive in mono.
I used this setup to receive HF FAX weather charts with RadFax 0.9
program, this is working beautifully.
The only thing that I need now is a RTTY program for the Mac that uses
the microphone inlet port for signal, does anybody knows if there is a
program like that out there, please let me know.

Thanks, Jack Mor

Jack,

What you've done is very interesting. Could you provide a little more
information about what Silent Play is. I bet this could also work with a PC
connected to a sound card? Don't know if my old Kenwood TS-520 would do the
trick, though, my Sangean 803a might.

Thanks for any additional information.

Say, are there any programs like this for the PC?

John B.
I didn't see the followup. Could you please repost it as I am also very
interested in trying this, not only for SW but for amateur radio contacts
(packet, etc.)

Thanks a lot,
