Thanks, Jerry. Have joined that group, but early results say 'no soap'. Guess I'm in for another remarkable hair-pulling session here; especially since I came up dry on a bunch of google searches. But appreciate the steer.

Using QT creator to generate the UI; runs fine. However, I'd like to use the python 'twisted' libraries to set up a serialport reactor, and have that reactor talk to the various UI controls. I'm having zero success in being able to start both the reactor and the UI. I've seen that both being event driven, I cannot use app.exec on the UI. And this snippet never shows the UI though apparently the reactor is running:
