K9DUR Voice Keyer
The K9DUR Voice Keyer was specifically written to interface to PowerSDR(TM) via Virtual Audio Cable (VAC). PowerSDR is the program used with the Flex-Radio Systems line of software-defined transceivers, and VAC is a 3rd party software driver that creates pairs of virtual audio cables.
VoiceKeyer allows you to select which soundcard installed on your PC to use for sending messages. Most other digital voice keyer programs only use the Windows default sound card.
Although it was written for PowerSDR w/VAC , VoiceKeyer is a general-purpose digital voice keyer program which can be used with any amateur radio transceiver by using the PC's sound card and a hardware interface to the rig.

I use the built-in record features in PowerSDR to record the necessary .wav files. The raw files normally need to be edited (trimmed to length, etc.) before they can be used. I have found that

are both easy to use and work very well. Any Sound Recorder is shareware & costs about $25 to register. Audacity is free.
