[NA-User] 2 radios - 1 COM port
Wed, 13 Mar 2002 21:22:23 -0500
I understand that the CI-V interface is designed to handle several radios
and will not get confused, but what about NA?
If this is the case, how do I properly assign COM ports? In the CONFIG.EXE
utility, under Serial Port Configuration, there is no provision for making
any one COM port talk to more than one device.
Has anybody else tried this? Succeeded?
