Need a little help here. I am running a Yaesu FT-2000, Installed IF2000, E-MU 0204, and the LP-PAN2. The LP-PAN 2 front panel [atten] button is pushed in. Cables are swapped in the back of the 0204 as directed, although I am not 100% sure that pertains in this situation as this was an assembled LP-PAN unit, and I selected the FT-2000 radio option when ordering.
The PC is an ACER ONE 722, AMD Dual_Core Processor C60 with turbo core technology up to 1.333GHz, 2GB DDR3 Memory.
I have no RS232 serial port connection on this PC so I am running a 232 to USB converter. Unfortunately, the chipset I have in the converter is a Prolific chipset. It worked fine for my CommCat software but seem to be limited to a baud rate of 4800, which could be part of the problem I am having. I have ordered a FTDI chipset based USB to 232 converter and it should be i mid week.
I seem to get some life out of the system when I first turn things on. By that I mean it goes to the rig frequency on startup, and I can seem to control the bandwidth, but that is about it.
Any suggestions? Do you think I need more PC, this one is just a notebook. Gees I hope not. Would hate to have to spend another $500 to $700 on another PC. Any thing I could change in the settings to make my pc work, like decreasing sample rates etc. . . ?
Also, do you think I will be able to run my CommCat logging software and the NaP3 program at the same time? They are both talking to the rig through Com Port 5.
A little frustrated, but being patient.
