Weatherfax on Asus X101

Hi Folks, I have an Icom M710 HF transceiver and want to connect it to an Asus X101 eee computer and have a go at receiving weather faxes. The Icom has an external speaker jack on the back panel and the Asus a combination headphone output/microphone input on the side. Problem is connections to these jacks that does not do any damage to either device. Anyone out there have experience with these devices.

Re: Weatherfax on Asus X101

Hi,I have an Icom 718 HF which I use to receive weather faxes on my Asus laptop.3 years old.I use JVComm as my programme.You will need a mono cable that runs from the speaker jack to the Asus microphone input.You can buy these cables from any electronics handy stores,or make one up your self.The HF speaker has a large plug so I just bought an adapter.Make sure that the cable is mono.Stereo will not work.
I have been been using this system all around the South Pacific,works real well.
