Radio Cables - The SignaLink comes supplied with a single the radio cable. Please see Question #5 to determine which SignaLink unit to order. Computer Cables - The cables that connect the SignaLink to your sound card are not supplied with the unit. However, we do offer an optional SignaLink Cable Accessory Kit (P/N: SLASSY). You can also purchase the cables from your local electronics supply store.
The SignaLink SL-1 will work with ANY transceiver, receiver or scanner, that has an external speaker output and a microphone input (required for transmit only). The SignaLink SL-1+ will also work with your radio's Data and Accessory Ports. Unlike many interfaces the SignaLink does not require VOX capability, so it is perfect for that little QRP rig! Specific radio requirements are dependent on the software you choose and the modes that you wish to operate.
The SignaLink is available in two models, the "SL-1" and the "SL-1+" (see our Product Comparison page, or the above question for a comparison of the two models). The SignaLink SL-1 works only with the radio's Mic jack, while the SignaLink SL-1+ works with the Mic jack, Data Port, and Accessory Port. We recommend that you attach the SignaLink Model SL-1+ to your radio's Data Port or Accessory Port connector.
With the exception of our 13-pin cables, ALL of the SignaLink radio cables are UNIVERSAL and will work with ANY radio, so long as you select one with the right type of connector (see Question #5). We have made this possible by wiring our cables "straight-through" (pin #1 to pin #1, pin #2 to pin #2, etc.), and using push-in jumper wires to connect the mic lines of the radio to the same lines in the SignaLink (PTT to PTT, Ground to Ground, etc.).
These jacks are unbalanced TIP = send, RING = return INSERT jacks. The cable used is called an "insert cable" and resembles a Y-cord with two unbalanced TS plugs joined to a single TRS plug also configured unbalanced. This type of cable may be obtained off-the-shelf at many pro audio dealers.
