Thanks. I got back to the computer to try this and I discovered that there
was actually a 2nd capture device (called Capture1) on the system. That
made the audio come through.
The problem I have now is that when the Parrot module (or for some reason
the EchoLink module) is activated, it hears the repeater's roger beep and
thinks it should replay it which puts it in to a never-ending cycle of
transmitting. Since I am leaving for the weekend, I turned it off so we
won't accidentally end up transmitting constantly, but I imagine I should
be able to adjust the VOX sensitivity so it will ignore the half-second
beep. (Other than a COR/COS line, which I would like to do) Is there a
better way of handling this? (The club does not want me to turn off the
