Re: [Elecraft_K3] Output problem on 80 and 160 meters
The answer there is to take the USB-Serial device and plug it into EACH USB port on your computer and (via Device Manager) TELL the OS what port you want it to be in each case (the same). Do this with each of your USB-Serial cables (because they often have a unique ID code) before you actually intend to use them. In the long run, it's simpler (I got tired of that and went a different route and now use real serial ports).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The utility program can also rescan the available ports to see what shows up, so you can try each one in turn to see if one works for you. Or scan it with the cable unplugged, plug it in, wait for the OS noise, then scan again and choose the one that was added.
This of course presumes that the serial port on the radio has not been compromised. A (power off) reboot of the computer (and radio) often clears some issues as well (drivers hang, the OS belches...).
