I just got myself a hand-me-down computer that I am using to improve my set
up in the radio shack. Nothing special, but it has 2 serial ports, so I'm
using one for CW and one for rig control.
CW works fine over COM2 - the rig control cable has taken COM4.
On "Setup Ports" it has accepted both....there's all kinds of stuff listed
in the ini file for both ports...BUT...
I can't get the computer to control the frequency/mode/etc on my
IC-706. (It is set according to numerous posts I've seen to make sure that
the radio is properly configured for the control cable.)
Any thoughts? Is there an .ini setting that I need to check?
It works fine right now - CW is flawless, etc. I have tried both radio
Right and Left - but often the frequency "button" will say "No Rig!" when I
transmit in CW. It would just be nice to solve this before the ARRL DX
I have to say, WL is vy fb.
