  • Updated 1 year ago
My Flex 6500 works fine and USB cable controls my Expert 1K-FA. I tried to connect also my SteppIR using the older control box model in parallel. This connection did not work.
Is it available any solution to get also this box to change band and band slot via USB cable?

Can you describe a little better how you have this connected?  The Steppir controller just listens to frequency commands from the radio/etc.  

If there are no communications from the radio, then the Steppir won't track.   

Essentially, the Steppir is connected on the Data out port, not the Data In.

Can you draw a diagram, take a picture of it and post it?  That would really help.

Hi Ilmo, do have used a FTDI cable and is connected to FluidMotion with a Null-Modem cable? My SteppIr FM work as well.
