CAT don't work Power Genius XL with Kenwood 990 RS232
Hi, I bought the Power Genius and paired it with the Flexradio 6500. Once the settings are made, everything works perfectly.
I also have a Kenwood 990 and would like to be able to use it by connecting the cat from the COM RS232 of the Kenwood 990 rear panel to the cat A of the Power Genius XL. I Prepared a 9pin female to 9pin straight female cable, connecting: pin 2 RXD, pin3 TXD and pin5 gnd
I then opened the setup to select the Kenwood radio, the speed 19,200 for as set also on the 990 and saved on the power genius.
Unfortunately, however, the cat does not work. I also tried to swap the cables from the 990 to the genius from rxd to txd and from txd to rxd, but it doesn't work. The frequency set on the 990 radio does not appear on the power Genius screen.
Where is the mistake? Can anyone tell me if the rs232 cable should be straight or cross? and which pins of the db9 must be connected to the 990 and to the Power genius? or what other setting is needed?
Thank you in advance.
