Well after about 2 weeks(4 hours total) beating the Singalink USB into submission, I finally got it up to at least monitor on 40 Meters.  Below is a screen shot of that it looks like


Now to figure out the proper form for formatting messages and try to transmit.'

I am using the Yaesu FT-857 D and The Signalink USB using Digital Master 780 that comes with HRD.  The beauty of DM780 is that it will automatically decode most any of the digital streams that are available as shown here

Did what I tell you help at all or no?

Just look at the first Screen and pay attention to the text in the red bars.  The graph on the left of screen is called a waterfall.   The dark red lines running sideways, with the yellow abovr and below are different freqs, each with a digital data stream running on it. 

The red bars with text inside is the program decoding the digital data on multiple freqs.


Think of it like sending text messages via HF radio, but being able to see everyone else texts( and they can see yours) at the same time.
