I have had several ask about setting up DX4WIN with the Flex-6000.  Very easy to do:

First, make note of the 3rd party port, in this case com5:

Second, setup a shared port pair, in this case com 6-16

Next go to DX4WIN in the Radio tab in the preference menu and setup the Radio as shown:

Next go to the control tab in the preference menu and setup the rotor control com port to com 6 in this case and for DDUtil setup Type and Message handshake as shown.

Finally, if you are using DDUtil V3 for rotor control check B Cast and Rotor Port as the other end of the port pair, com 16.

DX4WIN only knows about VFOA and B and will not respond to higher VFO selections.So if you double click on a spot VFOA (and VFOB if there is a QSX frequency) will go to the spot.  Also, the mode logged in DX4WIN will always be what ever the mode is for VFOA not B if it is different for some reason.

And finally, you must have VFOA and VFOB open before you start the radio otherwise DX4WIN will error out....

If you have any problems let me know, otherwise, good hunting and logging...
