Pairing a Radio Skin with a Hardware Device (#103)

The Problem:

You want to pair a military handset with a radio skin on a tablet running the Voisus client. However, the tablet audio input and output does not support military handsets.


The Solution:

Connect a hardware based audio channel with the radio skin GUI.


This can be done using an ACU2:
