  So impressed with a G4ZLP CT17 that I purchased some time ago, I decided to invest in a DigiMaster PRO+... And just as before, it does everything the ad says its supposed to do, far less expensive than other isolated interface options out there that don't do as much !

  I have used the Digimaster USB Minipro interface that was recommended to me by a friend, I am very impressed.

I have used the interface with a Yaesu FT817ND and an Icom IC7400 using PSK, SSTV and EasyPal on both radios with no trouble whatsoever.

The USB MiniPro is a small interface that takes up barely any room on my desk in my shack.

  Hi,

Thanks, Interface arrived yesterday, and is brilliant!

First tested with wsjt - that just worked, I think I had to change the com port and a couple of the sound settings in some fancy thing my laptop has but it was very easy.
Then on to digipan - equally easy and then N1MM - a bit more faffing but I got mmtty stand alone working first with the EXTFSK dll and then bolting N1MM on top was fine. That
was with CW FSK PSK all working just fine. Then on to the CAT. Eventually I managed to suss out how to convince N1MM to work, you had to fiddle with a couple of things.

Anyway the bottom line is that I retired to bed truly happy with CW FSK AFSK PSK WSJT and N1MM fully controlling the rig through the CAT interface, all through the one USB on my laptop. So, it does - everything.


I'll write up the settings I used for your website, most things were "obvious", but the experiences with the CAT interface to the TS-2000 through N1MM should save someone else a bit of time.

Cheers
Andy

  After looking at several options from other suppliers G4ZLP was recommended to me by several friends. I went ahead and bought the DigiMaster PRO. I am glad I did!
Had the PRO over a month now and to say that I am delighted is an understatement. I am operating DATA modes, real CW and CAT all via the same interface all at the same time.
Software is a real treat and the interface fits in so well with HRD and DM780 (and works with all other software I have tried too) that it makes operating the 857 and the software a real pleasure.
It just doesn't get any better than this!
I am glad that I did not make the mistake of spending more for an UK (G3) interface that did much less.

  Makes life so easy using DATA and CAT with HRD and DM780. Side by side on my screen controlling and using my 857D through the one USB box could not be easier or better.
I found it simple to set up (even for me with little PC experience).
10/10.

  Some background...

My local club has REALLY been getting into digital the last year or two - we even have a weekly 2-meter digital net so members can test out their gear and software settings, and get advice from some digi-experts.

I tried first holding the mic close to speakers of the rig and the computer for digital, but as you can imagine, that becomes old REAL quick.

Tried out several different digital interfaces - and they worked to some degree - but was never completely happy with any of them.

The last one I tried was the West Mountian Radio NoMic on my Yaesu 897D. It worked out OK, but on the 2-meter net I would have to TX and quickly unplug the NoMic and plug my microphone back in to talk.

Another problem with this set up was I was using my only serial port for Ham Radio Deluxe and rig control. Had to buy an "USB to serial converter" for the digital interface, and that presented it's own set of problems...

So I bit the bullet and bought the best ZLP interface he sells - the "DigiMaster USB Pro". I think I paid about $160 delivered to Michigan from England back in winter 2009. I see today that the price has gone down.

I was REALLY surprised when it arrived in just a few days, package was in perfect shape, was VERY easy to hook up, and it work perfectly the first time out. So now with one device I have rig control, a data interface that every piece of software seems to see, I don't have to unplug and re-plug in my mic, and I can even do keyboard CW in CW mode to boot!

I hate to admit, but since making general I have not been using my Morse Code and most likely wouldn't even recognise my own call sign. This interface has a key plug, so it does NOT imitate CW in another mode - it actually keys the rig in CW mode!

So bottom line, there are good interfaces out there for data modes, for CW, and for rig control. Some of the interfaces use serial ports - getting scarce now-a-days - and some use a USB port, but this thing is the cat...

  Just a short 'thank you' re the MiniPro interface.
Nice little unit - easy to use, and having the USB soundcard thown in is a great boon -
saves messing with the 'windows' soundcard on the PC.
Everything was set up very quickly, and, once I'd found the comport that Windows XP had allocated, I was up & doing the digital TX/RX thing in no time....
Currently running WSPR - and my 1 watt signal was successfully 'spotted' by VK3SMC on 20m -
can't be bad !
So - many thanks for the nice little interface, and the great service

Regards

  Perfect for Hamradio Deluxe
I got my DigiMaster PRO earlier today, it arrived 24hours after the order was placed.
A couple of days ago I bought the Mydel SB-2000, a similar product but I wasn't very impressed with it for two reasons:
The CAT speed was only 4800baud and only one comport was assigned - no good if your run Hamradio Delaux and some digimodes.

The DigiMaster PRO is so much better: Cat baud rate with my FT-2000 runs at full 38000 Baud, no more delays. A second comport is also assigned which makes running Hamradio Delux and digimodes so much easier.
The set-up was very easy as well.

In a nutshell: I believe this is the best product out there and the price compared to the SB-2000 is about 50 less.

The SG-2000 will have to be sold on Ebay or hifissb.com

Would I buy another one? Any time!

  Thanks for your really fast service. I recieved the Digimaster next day after placing my order. I have to admit I was a little concerned about setting it up, but even for me, with your simple instructions I was up and running in less time than it took the kettle to boil. I am absolutely delighted with your product and service.
Once again Thanks and I would recommend you to all.
Best Regards Richard.

  I purchased the DigiMaster PRO for my 897 and wanted to use my 897 with my FC30 so I got it with the DATA cable and "y4" CAT cable to connect CAT via the mic socket ( I can still use the mic via the supplied adaptor).

I received the interface yesterday. Absolutely terrific thanks. For the first time ever I can use the 897 as I have been wanting with the FC-30 tuner. It was very easy to setup and I had no problems.

Thank you so much for your help

  The "modem" is very well done.
Use it in all digital modes and works fine even with small signals.

  I've been using this interface for the last 2 weeks and so far it has performed flawlessly with all soundcard based data software I have thrown at it, e.g. Digitalmaster 780, MixW, Digipan, WJST.

Installation is simple, download the serial driver from the website, choose your software of choice, plug the interface in, and away you go.

The unit itself is housed in a very robust box, the only external features being an on/off button and a two colour (color) LED for rx (green) and tx (red). Neil supplies interface to radio leads for all popular radio's, mine being the Icom-IC736.

I only had one very small issue and that was with the supplied USB cable, when used I was getting a small bit of interference on 20m but replacing this with a high quality screened cable cured the problem.

The service from G4ZLP is excellent and in most cases the item is shipped on the day of ordering.

For anyone who hasn't tried the datamodes and wants a hassle free introduction to this bleepy warbly world I have no hesitation recommending this interface.

Regards

  I've been trying out for the last few weeks the DigiMaster DUAL Channel USB Audio-Data Interface with various Programs. FT817 Commander, Ham Radio delux, PSK31 Delux and now MixW 2.18.
Everything works perfectly that I have tried so far. I've been away from Ham radio for around 10 years so many of the modes are new to me.
It was nice to be able to buy a piece of hardware that "JUST WORKED" straight out of the box leaving me to just figure out the band plans and how the modes worked !.

Before purchasing the interface I had a few question which were answered very quickly, one returned to my inbox within 2 minutes of sending. Now thats what I call service.

  Outstanding quality and customer service, good shipping rates/times. Neil went out of his way to help me get everything up and running, and was very patient, as I am very new to digimode operation. CAT control (FT-990 via HRD) was flawless.
I highly recommend this interface; it's well-constructed, functionally simple, works FB with every program I've thrown at it, and is very reasonably priced, even having to ship across the pond.
Thanks again, Neil, top-notch product and unbeatable after-sale service!

  What a fantastic product. Very nice case and good qaulity construction.
Been using psk31 and very happy with the reports, it picks up the weakest of stations on the waterfall and decodes them with ease.

Will be coming back for a civ cat interface in the near future.

  I bought the Mini Pro and even as a complete beginner in didital modes, had BPSK up and running with the Mini Pro and HRD in under an hour. Unit very well built and supplied with correct and well made cables. Operation is completely seamless, level setting an absolute dream and for thye price, well recommended, you should sell 1000's !

  I got the MiniPRO and have had it for jus 2 weeks now. I must say that the feel of the interface is superb, all black, small strong metal case. On/off switch and red/green led for tx/rx. I plugged it in, Windows detected it immediately and automatically installed the drivers. I plugged it into my FT857 and was amazed to be working psk31 in less than 10 minutes after taking it out of the box. Operation is flawless. I have had many qsos, always get good reports, and can 100% decode traces on the waterfall that I can hardly see! To say I am happy is an understatement.

  I purchased the DM USB Data-Audio interface and set it up on my laptop. The drivers installed flawlesly and gave me the virtual com ports that I lacked on the laptop. It connected to my Icom IC-7000 via Ham Radio Deluxe and out-performs my Homebrew unit that has a pre-amp and attenuater circuit. The quality and construction is superb. I use it with MixW2, MultiPSK and a couple of SSTV programs. Highly recommend this and any products from Neil and ZLP Electronics.

Just an additional note to my last message, This interface works great under Linux - Suse 10, Ubuntu 6.2 and the CD version Digipup 1.33. Digimodes and rig control work well under all distro's.

Thanks Neil
