"EASY DIGI" Baufeng UV-5R INTERFACE for laptops, desktops and Raspberry with usb audio. (Easy Digi) Assembled)
The KF5INZ Laptop/Desktop digital interface for the popular UV-5R and compatible handi-talkies.
AN IMPORTANT WORD ABOUT NEWER LAPTOPS AND SOME DESKTOPS:
If your Laptop or desktop only has an "Earphone" jack, but no "Mic" jack, read your manual! It probably has the combined Earphone/Mic jack.
This is a 4 conductor jack wired as follows: TIP, RING, RING, SHIELD: Tip = right channel audio out. 1st Ring = left channel out. 2nd ring = ground. Shield = microphone input.
When you order I need to know whether or not your device is as above or uses the legacy separate mic and earphone jacks. If you do not give me that information then I can not guarantee that what I ship you will work on your pc and if post shipping modifications are required you will be responsible for shipping costs both ways as well as a modification fee.
I also need to know the make and model of the radio you wish to use the interface with and whether you wish to use the microphone/speaker jacks or a data or accessory jack.
This is the VOX version of our "Easy Digi" interface to now include a laptop/desktop version made specifically for the UV-5R and compatible handi-talkies.
The pictures above show the "Easy Digi" interface connecting the UV-5R to a laptop computer.
We used FLDIGI to operate PSK, QPSK, MT-63, and various other modes. Using FLDIGI (FREE DOWNLOAD), and FLMSG/FLARQ software you can perform message handling for ECOM work.
This interface uses the VOX circuit of your transceiver to do PTT, therefore it does leave out a lot of vhf radios, but we're working on that.
Simply set your VOX setting to "1" on your UV-5R and your volume control to about 1/4 to 1/3 and your in business!
Included are the cables to connect to your radio external speaker jack, and a cable to connect to your microphone connector, and to your computer.
Cable configurations may vary according to availability.
Other configurations may be available on special request. Please contact us.
Simply hook up per the enclosed wiring diagram, load your App, turn on the radio and have fun.
Note: The laptop shown is for illustration purposes only and is not included.
Fully wired and assembled in a mountable ABS plastic case.
