Have you tried this? .... Shut down HRD entirely. Shut down everything else that uses the serial port. Shut down the computer (power off). Disconnect the serial cable from any other devices besides the Orion. Connect to the Orion, and only it. Start up the computer. Do NOT start any programs that use the serial port (e.g., HRD). Update the Orion.
Force12 offers 2 and 3 element beams for 80,-- see their Magnum Force 280 and 380. They could probably answer your questions about stacking the 80 meter beams with antennas for other bands. http://www.force12inc.com/
