West Mountain Radio RIGblaster

The West Mountain Radio RIGblasters series provides the easiest way to properly connect your radio to your computer's sound card so that you may operate using any present or future ham radio sound card software. RIGblasters are compatible with almost every radio and every sound card equipped computer. It is easy to adjust the audio to any radio's mic input. Opto-isolators are used to the fully isolate computer ground circuit (other interfaces require extra ground screws, extra wires and extra cables to eliminate ground loops). All required cables are included for easy hook up using fully isolated audio and computer keying circuits. Effective RFI suppression eliminates RF in the audio. Positive and fully automatic PTT control or VOX operation is available. This is a quality product, supplied in sturdy 1/16 inch aluminum cases, powder coat painted and silk screened (no plastic pill boxes, sharp edges or plastic coated metal). Double sided 1/16 inch fiberglass plated through, solder masked and silk screened printed circuit boards are used. Commercial quality mini toggle switches are featured (no cheap slide or push switches). Stainless steel black anodized hardware is included. Click here to view rear panel.
