Can I connect a USB cable from my 6500 to my computer to have it communicate back and forth, particularly with Amateur Contact Log?

Not necessary. You can connect to a virtual com port that is provided by the SmartSDR CAT program. SmartSDR CAT uses TCP/IP to talk to the radio and then provides you with Virtual Serial Ports. You can create many serial ports, so you can run multiple programs that need CAT in parallel like N1MM and WSJT.

I hope this help. 73, Andreas, N6NU
