I suspect that what he means is the radio was set to use the rs-232 port and not the usb port.

Resolved. RS232 Config item was set at 38400. Wrong. Rolled RS232 to USB and all is well. At age 86, items like this do not recall correctly.

+ That's why directing the DXLab Launcher to populate a Workspace when everything is working correctly is so important. Known good settings can then be restored with a couple of mouse clicks.

A kind, smart Elecraft tech helped me test and find this. On another happy note, he told me not to worry about parts inventory as Elecraft can repair most boards unless a catastrophic event occurs, CASE CLOSED.

+ If the K3S "RS232 Config" menu offers 38400 as a choice, why is it wrong? The K3S manual notes that firmware upgrades are automatically conducted via the serial port at 38400.

+ Did you have Commander configured for a baud rate other than 38400?
