Author Topic: Problem with VX7R Commander  (Read 1182 times)

So I have two VX7R's and use VX7R commander to program them.

I just tried reprogramming one, and it won't take. I read the memory to the computer, saved it, and changed one channel. I tried to write it, but it ended early with a clone error, and set the radio totally back to factory settings. Now, it won't take any of my saved files. It says Clone RX, the computer finishes writing (100%), but the radio stays at "CLONE RX" for a few seconds and then says CLONE ERROR.

Any ideas?

I had the same problem and traced it to the serial to USB adapter cable that I must use on my laptop. If this is your situation, you might try installing on a computer with a real serial port. Apparently the VX-7 is pretty picky on timing issues.

I had the same problem at first, but the VX-7 Commander Troubleshooting Section has a fix for that. Slow down the Transfer Speed and it works.
