CT V9.26 Bug report
Problem - Can't log QSO if CT can't communicate to radio
Description - CT is setup to communicate to IC-765 on COM1. Problem
prevents communication (get radio timeout message). Unable to log a QSO
(contest=CQWW). This used to work in V9.23.
How did I find this? Well I could use your help in solving that...
This summer my station took in some lightning via the phone lines. Cost
me a modem and some com ports in the computer. Got all that repaired,
and then discovered I could no longer communicate to my IC-765 from CT.
I am using the KIY box from K1CC. I replaced the two chips in the KIY
box and still can't communicate. I can take the same cable and plug it
into the TNC and that works so I know it is not the computer, com port or
cable. That leaves the radio as the primary suspect.
This is not good. But before I rip the radio apart, I am looking for
troubleshooting ideas. If I put a dumb terminal to this, should I see
garbage on the screen as I turn the knob on the radio (I don't now)?
Has anyone ever had to work on this part of their 765 and can offer some
Anyone have another 765 I could borrow to test with? I promise to return
it right after CQ WW Phone (!).
Thanks for any suggestions.
