M710 cloning question
Hi; First time for me trying to add some freqs to a Icom M710RT, US/general version. It's had the HF radio mods (by Don) for "ham friendly" operation years ago.
I get "cloning error". Here is what I've got. A new HP laptop, running WinXP. I've done what I think are the correct setup to get the DOS Icom EX1726 software to run, and it does seem to run ok. SInce the laptop doesn't have a db9/serial port, I'm trying a 3rd party USB to 3.5mm plug cable and driver, made for this purpose. I see the driver in the device manager OK. I've selected COM1, and tried both 4800 and 9600 baud rates. The usb cable does appear to affiliate ok.
Any ideas out there? The usb to icom cable was purchased by Affordable radio in CAN.
