Hello all

In what way do you use the USB output of the Flex6x00? Ik want to try to control my UltraBeam with this. But I like to hear your experiences with what can be more connected to this.

I use my Flex remote over internet v2.49

Hi Laurens

This should help you out https://www.flexradio.com/downloads/usb-cable-interface-guide-pdf/

In RS232 mode, the radio sends band data in Kenwood format of either your active TX Slice or a specific antenna port.

Laurens,

Here are two diagrams that show how I use my 6600 and 6700 USB connections to control literally everything.

This diagram is a bit outdated. The radio is now a 6600 and the amp is now a PGXL. The transverters have been moved to the 6700 for 160M - 23 cm.

I use one usb to control my amplifier band switching. I use another to control my remote coax switch band selections.
