on older laptops it may be necessary to check 'low CPU speed' and NOT use 
portaudio on fldigi.

Also make sure you have fldigi >= 3.20.20.

Frequency accuracy may be critical on PSK and MFSK modes. Try to stay within 15 
Hz from the center freq.

I now use jPSKmail 0.5.6, which features compressed beacons.

This combination has been tested thoroughly with Pi4TUE, SM0RWO and PA0SON-4.
I cannot test with windows, as this qth has been successfully microsoft-free 
for the last 30 years...
