Interface Genius - the radio interface that does it all!

Interface Genius ("IG") is a USB or LAN controlled SO2R radio interface modem.  Usable for up to 2 transceivers for SO2R or multi-op contest operations.  Multiple units can be interfaced together via LAN for multiple (more than 2) transceivers in the same environment.  It is designed to be controlled by a Windows application, or can be used standalone. 

  • Full SO2R capability via USB with the use of the optional SO2R Extender, which allows connection of a second radio the main IG unit via 15 pin cable.  Alternatively use 2 IG, one per radio, for LAN control of both units for SO2R or multi-radio multi-op contest operations.
  • Dual built-in hardware soundcards.  Audio output from single input microphone plugged into IG, output radio A from IG to rig A mic jack, radio B from SO2R Extender or 2nd IG to rig B mic jack.  Independent front panel RX A and RX B knobs used for setting recording levels for transceiver(s) audio to shack computer.  Soundcard used for sending transmit audio either live or messaging to the mic inputs on transceiver(s).
  • Full CW capability with built-in WinKeyer v3.0.  CW outputs similar to SSB, single output from IF unit to radio A, radio B CW output from SO2R Extender or 2nd IG unit.  Front-panel CW speed pot, rear jack for paddle connection.  CW speed can be set independently for 2 radios.
  • Integrated direct connection capability for most Yaesu, Kenwood, Elecraft, Ten-Tec transceivers via CAT interface.  CI-V output for Icom and some Ten-Tec transceivers.  FlexRadio connection via LAN. 
  • SO2R selectable audio profiles for manual or automatic changing of receiver audio focus
  • Multi-op broadcast mode - with multiple IG units connected on LAN, have run radio audio sent to all other units for monitoring by other operators.
  • Single or dual footswitch control on SSB. 
  • "Modem mode" for remote control of connected radio with laptop instead of 2nd transceiver using Ham Radio Deluxe software
  • Coming soon:  FSK operation
  • Coming soon: "Slave mode" allows control and operation of a remote radio via the internet.  Station with antennas and transceiver with an IG at remote site is controlled by a 2nd transceiver with 2nd IG of same type locally.  Plug paddle, mic, headphones into local radio and have it control the remote radio automatically.
