[Linrad] Re: Duplex

Can you send the steps you use to reproduce this?

If you use a softphone package what happens?  I would think teamspeak, 
skype, ekiga, etc would not work with what you say is happening.

I don't know if an echo test from one of those services would be a good 
test or not.

Something to try.
