Huge Windows bug ruining receive performance on digital modes, fix discovered

Hi all,

I came across this this afternoon and it's worth spreading the news on - many or most amateurs utilizing remote sound interfaces with numerous models of TI chips are likely having poor receive performance in all versions of Windows from Vista on up.

Please have a look at this video and this story and discussion at Reddit.

As the Reddit post shows, this affects all Signalink USB units, all ICOMs, Kenwoods and Yaesu's with built in USB audio, as well as the SCU-17 interface, and very likely other devices.

The fix is handy to know, and hopefully if there's enough noise on this perhaps we can push Microsoft for a fix. (Perhaps that's wishful thinking)

The proposed Field Day site is definitely a go - see you there!

Hello all,

Please see the attached information on this year's field day site (as well as the previous article) for information on how to get there.

The Field Day schedule will be similar to past Field Days with set up beginning Friday June 26 afternoon and evening. We will finish set up Saturday June 27 morning and start operating at noon until noon Sunday June 28. Then it’s time to take everything apart.

As usual we will take a break from operating for our pot luck dinner around 5:00 PM on Saturday. Then back at it “CQ field day de VE7UT“.

Yay, the repeater is back on the air and linked in to the SIRG!
