I am working on finding a good way to record the stuff I listen to off of the short wave radio. and off of the scanner. So far I have tried GarageBand but that has a limit of 1 hour and fifteen minutes. Right now I am trying a program called AudaCity, if it works well, I might post some of the short wave stations that I listen to, I also have to get a converter for the earphone jack on the radio, it has the older style. Also another project I am going to look into (out side of the SWlogger program I am working on) is to build a cable to go between my computers sound card and the Icom 2100. There are some programs out there that will let you use a computer as a TNC. I am hoping to play with packet radio when I build it. I have built a cable before to go between a miniTNC and the Icom 2100 before. The problem the miniTNC was that it only worked with the proprietary program and it only ran on DOS

    Found your site while googling for Icom 2100H software.
    I saw your comment about finding software that will record output from a radio. You might want to look into a program called Scanner Recorder. It will record to hard drive capacity, also, it will not record the long silences between transmissions.
