Did you save the changes to the config files when you closed it?

My 990 at 4800 baud works fine - nothing major had to be done - it was 
harder to get it going with CT - I just did same stuff as you noted. 
There is a chance your not outputting info at the CAT socket on the back 
  - dunno if a local could mebbe lend you one of those line testers with 
the LEDs that show activity on the circuit - you could plug that into 
the far end to see if the checker's lights flicker when you spin the 
knob, etc...

Is the CAT readout on the display of the 990 flashing?

GL - off to Dayton to see my buddy K8CC - no matter how much he upsets 
me at times I still love his program NA!
