Thanks for the ideas.
I played with the Cat rate and the port speed some more, didnt really notice any difference in getting the "one" to program.
I did contact RT systems, who responded to my email in about an hour, which was awesome!
They wanted me to get data from the radio which seems to work flawlessly. then without doing anything else, send it right back to see if it error-ed. I assumed that was to see if i was using another "Radio file" to open the radio up or something along those lines.
Anyways I made them another youtube video of the issue with their question taped going over the setup. hopefully they find them to be useful in diagnosing the issuehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnfVU8AQD50
What I did try, was removing the blank freqs from my list and making everything all together, i think that might have reduced the number of trys needed to get the info onto the radio. So maybe your theory of the data is causing it might have some merit.
well see how it plays out.
