Ok Let me know if you7 can't.. It is a very simple system.. There is a kit on the web (I think mentioned up thread by someone else) that is under 30 bucks, might do the job too.

I can tell you that for me it was easy (You see I RTFMed before hooking up) and I got lucky the 1st time... But though I'm starting to wane a bit.. For the last few years it has been Kid in a Candy store time again with PSK and now other modes too using Ham Radio Delux... I really miss the shack computer (May take me a month or two to fix it, Simple fix (Drop in new Mother board) done it before, but alas, no dough)

Well, a few questions.
1: What radio do you have (See note below)
2: How are you feeding the computer's audio to it
3: Go to Device Manager on your computer, find the USB - RS-232 converter (it is under PORTS) and tell me what chip set or what other info is there.

Notes: Some radios like the Kenwood TS-2000 which PTT line you key (Front or back) decides what audio input you use, The CAT (Serial cable) Keys the FRONT line only so you need a 2nd adapter keying the rear PTT using the CDS/RTS line(s) to make it work

2: See 1

3: As I said up-thread, I have 3 adapter shere, the Prolific won't even download frequency to YP-LOG The belkin will do that but won't let me read the radio's memories (or write them) using the TS-2000 memory tool from Kenwood.

The RTS-3 from RT-Industries works, period, end of line, everything is proper. NO complaints.. There are several other RS-232 <->USB adapters that work as well but I don't know which ones.. Several threads here list them.
