Re: [Elecraft_K3] Just Received K3S.


I think you may find that the RS232 OUTPUT is active when on USB so the data going TO the USB port MAY still be going out the RS232 Tx data pin as well.  But the ACC connector is definitely active and band data is available on it regardless of USB or RS232 selection.

Just received a new K3S serial number 10015. I have moved to this radio from a TS990 . Obviously very different radios, but so far I am impressed. 

I will say one big disappointment is that it seems you can't have both the USB and RS232 ports active for CAT data. This was actually something I was really excited aboutl, because I could connect my computer via the USB port and use the RS232 port to send band data to my amp. I would love to be proved wrong on this count? 

Not sure if it is possible to re mediate this via firmware or if it is a hardware constraint. 

I'll try and set up virtual com ports to see if I can work around this
