*** Before starting on AQWPE with a SignaLink, it is important to realize that this is not the prefered method for packet radio. This is an option when no other options are avialable, for whatever reason. Packet with a SignaLink requires very fine tuning of both RX and TX sound levels as well as fine tuning of the TX Delay. It took me a couple of hours of fine tuning the SignaLink before it operated correctly.

AGWPE was developed and maintained by: SV2AGW
