Re: Serial cable question

Joe Pistritto <jcp@...>

My experience here is that doesnt work with the programming software for the TMD700A

I had to get a *real* serial cable and hook it up to a real serial port (ie. all 9 pins straight through).
a USB serial adapter would not work.

Now, i've done the other thing when i just wanted to run WinAPRS or something with the radio, but if you're going to use a connection for programming, its best if its a real serial port.

One could get the appropriate gender RJ45 to Serial Adapters and connect
them with a standard network (Ethernet) cable. A very simple and compact
way to make your own serial cables. Mix and match the genders of the
adapters and can cover all bases.
