Hello Jean,

You will need to set up the amplifier for Kenwood CAT using RS232C. Then you will need to get a FTDI Usb to serial adapter. Plug it in and under the USB cables menu configure this adapter in SmartSDR as a CAT cable. Then you can attach it to your amplifier as you would any kenwood Radio.

Yes. The usb cable connects to the radio. No computer is needed.

I didn’t mention it but you also need rf in, antenna and ptt cables.

I have that setup but had to use a Null Modem cable from the USB - RS-232 to the THP amp.

Are you using a Null Modem cable?  The THP requires a Null Modem RS-232 cable.  I made a simple adapter using a pair of DB-9 connectors back to back.

You can buy a Null Modem adapter to go between your cable and the THP amp.  Just make sure you get the proper male/female connections.  As I said earlier, I made one, but they are readily available on Amazon and other Web sites.
