Just took a look at the manual for the 570D/S. Could not find the
one for the DG. It shows a db connector for PC connection, so if
that is the case for the DG, you would be using an adapter to get
to USB. It says 4800 baud, n-8-1. Have you tried that setting
with both Kenwood and Kenwood2 in the rig settings?
You can confirm that the winkeyer is on Com 4 by unplugging the
USB cable and watching the Device Manager. The port will
disappear. You could also verify the winkeyer with the utilities
that Steve, K1EL provides on the website.
I would think that you could also unplug the rig cable from the PC
and have the com port disappear, but I'm not completely sure.
Also, I have heard some wierd/bad things about Prolific Serial to
Hang in there.

Device Manager shows the other port as Prolific
USB-to-Serial Com Port (COM4). That’s the comport I’m
trying to use. Rig Interface refuses to use it. I just
need to figure out what the heck is tying up COM4.
What rig are we talking about?

I don’t have an Icom. They have enough problems of their
own thank you. I guess I can look for a USB cable coming
into the rig and unplug it. I know when I go into Device
Manager and unplug the WinKeyer it is definitely using
COM3 but something is definitely tying up COM4 because
ACLog’s rig interface won’t connect to it. I’d just like
to take whatever is using COM4 out on Interstate-10 and
beat it with a friggin Sludge Hammer so I can use the darn
No. ACLog does not load any drivers. It uses the existing
ones. Just make sure that after you uninstall the existing
drivers your rig is not expecting these drivers to already
be installed when you plug in the usb cable. I know that
you have to install the Icom drivers prior to connecting

un-loading ACLog the same as unplugging? Maybe I have
to un-install ACLog and download a fresh copy of v.6.7.
I would unplug everything from the PC, go to your device
manager and uninstall whatever is listed on the trouble
com Ports, including the drivers, restart windows, then
you can start plugging stuff back in in and those Ports
should be useable again.

know of a good reliable utility that one can run
to totally annihilate anything using com ports 3
and 4 and return them to their factory
defaults? Such a utility would be a valuable
addition to my shack. As per usual I can’t get
rig interface to work with ACLog.
really getting tired of jacking with it. Thank
God the WinKeyer works as a stand alone. Forget
about using the F-Keys.
to think Rig Interface is for the rich and
