Start up. Asked to check out a Flex 5000A

I have a used FLEX 5000A on my work bench and could use some suggestions on how to bring the interface cable from a IEEE 1394 firewire to a USB port. Is there anyone successfully using such an adapter and what software package do I start with for use with Window 10. I have no reason to believe that this radio is not fully operational.

Thank you W6gj

    Firewire to USB adapter unfortunately does not exist. Firewire is the only posssible interface berween Flex 5000A and a computer.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
