My name is Ward Clapham, VE7CYA Nanaimo BC

All I am trying to do his configure my Flex 6400 to my newly purchased HRD logbook
No digital
Just want to have my flex send the radio frequencies to my log

I have searched the internet, watched videos and downloaded the suggested utility, etc, with no success

Any help would be appreciated

    While I don't have a video for it, the steps are the same for all logbooks (generally).

    1. Create a CAT Serial Port in SmartSDR CAT. Write down the port number
    2. In HRD, create a new radio to connect to and select Kenwood TS-2000 and select a baud radio of 19200 or 9600 - the baud rate isn't critical
    3. Start SmartSDR and make sure SmartSDR CAT is running as well
    4. Click connect to the radio you created in HRD and it should connect and you will see your VFO frequency
