Thank you for taking time to address my problem. I hesitate to
write to someone at a work address unless invited, thus this.
>>1) KM9P . . . all three major programs (NA, CT, TRLog).
The problems seemed to involve the microprocessor software within the
>>2) KG5U . . . interface was sensitive to RF in Field Day environments.
As I said originally, I have the radio working perfectly on all bands using
CT; and, the problems occur even before any transmitting is done. So I
doubt that either of these applies.
And you said:
>>3) Warren, . . . for non-RS232 accessories . . .
The secret is to only connect the RXD, TXD, and GND pins and the Omni-VI
The connection I am using for CT is:
Computer DB-9F #3 to Omni-VI TXD (pin 2)
Computer DB-9F #2 to Omni-VI RXD (pin 3)
Computer DB-9F #5 to Omni-VI SGnd (pin 7)
Computer DB-9F #4 to Computer DB-9F #6 (DTR to DSR)
None of the Omni-VI pins for bandswitching or remote tuning are involved.
Do I need to connect the computer RTS and CTS together??? This I have not
I don't think I'm missing anything in the program/computer setup, but as I
said--I've been wrong before! Now I'm going to pretend this is an ICOM 781
once more and see. . ..
