On to the next step. 
Setting up internal jumpers
Getting my digital operating off the ground has been off and on the last month as we have had relatives visiting from the UK so we have been out and about with them. The latest is I have been able to download and install WSJT-X's software. There is an online install guide that is just great and I followed it slowly step by step. In the past I have found when the digi modes have tripped me up it's been my own fault in most cases. I rush the process and something along the line is overlooked and problems arise that cost me time and frustration. The WSJT-X software is up and running and I have been able to get my Elecraft K3 to communicate with the software. This has always been a challenge in the past to get the proper settings so rig and software get along. Next is to get the Signalink USB own sound card to be the stand alone card for my digital operations. The PC's sound card can look after all windows 7 tasks. The Signalink USB is a very nice unit and in the past I did have one and sold it....story of my ham career! On their site they have some very detailed easy to follow setup instructions for most if not Windows OS's and most but not all digital software. Well it's off to the next step in my digital adventure.
