Soundboard = mixer, ok I get it now...

Just record and process everything on a PC. Playback as an MP3 or whatever. Simple cheap. No need for any expensive hardware..

Yeah, you could just use stereotool, but I think you still need at least a cheap mixer to connect your mic. The kind of mics you can connect directly to a PC sound card are not the best and then you can't fade it in or talk over.

There are still a few Radio Shacks around that sell mic mixers for around 20-25 bucks. They'll do both mono and stereo.

Spend some $ on a decent USB audio interface, one with an XLR mic input + get a decent mic. Will be all you need, that and a TRANSMITTER!

'It's better to give than receive' so why RX when you can TX!

                            Buy one from me, NOW!

Great discounts on ALL my transmitters if purchased via HFUnderground
