I'm going to have to write an FAQ on serial ports!   :-)


A number of items you don't state that we need to know:

Do the base address's and IRQ's match with the ComtsrX
Are you using NETTSR which uses com 4
Can you talk to the radio with a DOS based communications program like 
Telix or Procom?
Do the baud rate's match with each radio and com port
Do you have all the comstr's loaded for each port.
Are you running this on top of Windows, or are you loading DOS at bootup?

Let us know... Mike VA3MW
