How did you set it up?  Wired?  Type of interface?

Some more details would help to see what is going on.

You  might want to review the USB interface guide:  http://www.flexradio.com/downloads/usb-cable-interface-guide-pdf/

Hi Thurman

I would love to, but I would be taking away work from the team in support.  :)  You could also log a case in the support page and they will jump in.

I hope you didn't use the USB port on the back of the amp. That is not intended to interface with the Flex. It's intended to control the amp with a PC. You need a FTDI USB to serial adapter. Configure the amp for kenwood protocol and connect it using a serial cable... At least I think that's how it is supposed to operate from reading the manual (I only have a 91B, sorry).
