Can't get USB Interface for the KPA500 to talk
I bought an FTDI USB cable off of Amazon and a null modem adapter to go between the cable and my KPA500. The radio seems to see the cable ok as it displays the cable serial number. CAT is enabled and the speed is 9600 source TX ant and ANT1. Have logging turned on and whenever I change bands it logs for instance 20:38:32 (TX): FA00010108000;.
Changed the settings on my KPA500 to be as shown in the Flex USB Cables Interface for the FLEX-6000 guide. RADIO"is set to SERIAL, SER POLL is set to ON and baud rate is set to RS232 X 9600.
Have Flexlogger running on my PC and it is talking to the rig but the KPA Amp tab does not see the amp either.
However when I change bands on the rig it does not change it on the amp.
I know that I can use DDUTIL to change the bands automatically but I want to use SSDR on two different PC's.
Any idea what I have wrong with my setup? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
