The Flex 6500 connects to my PC by an Ethernet cable. The Flex rear panel USB connections are not
The 2k-FA has 2 cables:
1. USB cable from 2k-FA rear panel to pc USB receptacle, and
2. A proper DB15 to DB9 cable to a FTDI chip conversion of RS232 to USB and then to pc USB receptacle.
The SPE software “Term-2k-USB.exe” controls the 2k-FA as expected but frequency / band information is not passed from Flex to 2k-FA without performing a Flex Tune to utilize the 2k-FA internal frequency counter to jump to the proper band.
How do I get the 2k-FA to automatically follow the flex changes in bands, without having to initiate a Flex tune?
Do I need to use the Flex rear panel USB receptacles, with a USB cable from Flex to the pc? Or, the Flex USB to “USB – RS232 FTDI chip conversion to DB15 connector” cable directly to the CAT port of the 2k-FA?
Thanks for any advice.Mike, K6DRY
