Re: Can't Program the TH-F6?

Jerry - I did what you suggested - and it says that the USB-to-Serial is set up for COM5. My laptop, Compaq, has 3 USB ports; 1 for printer, 1 for mouse, and the 3rd spare. I hooked the USB-to-Serial cable to this third USB connector. I'm hoping my windows XP knows this 3rd USB connector, as "com5". I then did the "menu 9, set to PC" thing, and then took radio out of menu mode. Turned off F6 HT, connected HT cable(s) to PC. Brought up Kenwood's HT F6/F7 program, and then turned on F6A HT. I haven't the foggiest YET, of how to use this Kenwood programming program. But if I try to do something simple, like change the HELLO sign-on message to "N3CSY", and then write it out to the radio - it continually comes back with: "The Radio is invalid. Please check & try again" Fred N3CSY --- In TH-F6A@..., "Jerry W" <k0hzi.mn <at> ...> wrote: > > Fred, > > Open Control Panel, System, select Hardware tab, Device Manager,(Continue reading)
