Hi everyone, I have a problem I need help with. I have a Kenwood TS-480SAT that I am trying to run HRD on and I can not get it to connect. I am using a usb to serial cable. I can control the radio with the PC with the Kenwood software but when I connect to HRD it can not read the frequency. Not sure what is going on here, just thought someone else might have had the same problem before. I am running windows 8 and HRD 5.24.38.0

Thanks so much and 73's

I don't operate nor am I familiar with Kenwood stuff though I think they have some very nice equipment.  I've found that the hardest part of HRD for anyone is connecting to the radio and more times than not it tends to be the cable driver software.  You might want to try and see if there's any newer versions of the driver available.  I use RT System cables and software and I've had good success.  I know you can connect to the radio with Kenwood software but it's worth a try.  Also try using the "auto-detect" feature when choosing com port (even though you're using USB port) and baud rate settings.  Hope this helps.

I use the FTDI chipset. But as Randy mentioned, the settings are incorrect because your Kenwood software can connect.
