That sounds like a configuration problem, Art.

When you say "Anytime I try to access the TNX
Line, I get an error that says ("Cannot open Comport 3)",

1. what's a TNX line?

2. How are you attempting to access it?

In order to run transmit with FSK, you need a way to convey the outgoing FSK

Signal to you rig. This requires a level converter that is driven by one of
Three serial port signals: TXD, RTS, or DTR.

To what serial port is your RIGMATE connected, and which of the above three
Modem control signals is used to generate the FSK signal?

Using Winwarbler, I can not get FSK to work. Anytime I try to access the TNX

Line, I get an error that says ("Cannot open Comport 3". Does this sound
Like a common problem with the computer, or the interface? I am using a

Believe it or not, this computer does have an actual serial port. I might
End up just using it for PTT and FSK.

Any ideas?
