I'm using the Elecraft KXUSB cable connected to one of the USB ports on back of rig. Set configuration same in KPA=1500 setup as well as USB settings in Flex.
It's plug and play and amp follows rig as to freq.

We got it going finally.
No it is not plug and play, there are settings to change, not just plugging in a cable and go.

Dick,

what help do you need with a KPA1500? Do you have the KXUSB cable?

That connects from the back of the Flex to the amp serial in.
