Thanks for the responses. Let me try to clarify the problem.
I have CT ver 9.27 and an OMNI VI with the latest firmware upgrade.
I'm using the RS-232 port on the OMNI and I can only get some of the
CT features to work.
1) If I enable CdE (matrix mode) The frequency will continuously
display and update in the band window as the tuning knob is rotated.
This is a really neat feature in CT. However with the CdE on I can't
use the computer to change bands.
2) With CdE off, the Band change works, but the frequency is not
continuously updated in the BAND window. Only the last frequency is
displayed. Also, when I change bands from the computer keyboard the
filters default to the 2.4kc position. (This is a problem in a CW
The TEN-TEC manual says that the MATRIX mode is for use with the
serial interface in a multi radio/computer environment.
That is why I think I need to use the serial input for this to work
Does anyone know a source for a serial convertor? Commercial product
or a schematic will do.
