    The circuit gets powered from the V1 accessory port.

    True! But he wins more from new customers who want to hook it up to their CarPCs. Having that option is just good PR. tj!2k4 just bought one and fantomas and I are planning on it.

    Nope, it's the simple "homebrew" interface I'm working on that is the issue.

    I can almost guarantee you that the software works 100% with the following:

    -the six-transistor design cable like the one here:
    http://home.comcast.net/~sllewd/pcware.htm
    which is the same design available for purchase from here, as the CT-29A:
    http://www.rtsars.com

    -The Valentine interface from http://www.ttl2usb.com

    However, it would be nice to have a simple desing using few components. Also, the interfaces above definitely won't work with the mute function I'll be adding, without some modification.

    Well, I hope he isn't mad about it. Someone who isn't careful could definitely mess up their V1, and then send it in for a warranty repair or something. However, it would be really nice to get his input on the project. I know he uses some kind of software, and interfaces to a laptop to do testing on the V1s...


    I'll try to work on this some more tonight...

    Hey Jim - just looking at the CT-29A "Programming Cable DB-9 to 3.5mm Stereo Plug" - one would just need to snip the stereo plug and replace w/ RJ11 then (obviously paying attention to the correct wiring order), correct?

    $25 seems a good price rather than building your own. But mute functionality would also be very nice if you're going to these lengths to integrate the V1 into a car PC setup.

    $10 + $7 shipping and already has the RJ11 for the electrically challenged, but as Jim said, no mute at this point..

    That, or build the "Radio Cable to Valentine One adapter from my page, which basically adapts the 3.5mm plug to the RJ-11...

    I agree, but where are you seeing this $25 price?

    Look in the Alinco cables under the DR-605 heading.

    Edit: I also see it in the Icom cables section.

    Stupid question, but the TTLUSB cable is.. USB.. correct?
