      Tom,

      Looking at the TS-50 commands, I don't see a SET command for the RIT (only read) so likely that issue needs to be ignored.

      Tom,

      OK, set both to On.

      Tried SO2V with the TS-50 as the only radio and same results. Can't SWAP or SPLIT.

      Ham Radio Deluxe (first time I tried this program and it seems pretty good for testing the CAT interface). Does both SWAP and SPLIT fine.

      The 100ms comment was what I set on HR Deluxe as I though the little radio might be being overwhelmed with polls from MM.

      Are there any other TS-50 users out there that have the interface working?

      Don't bother to try to get it to work with handshaking. Just set both to
      always on.

      Try split, etc. with the TS-50 set up as the only radio and so2v. See if
      you can set these options in that config. As I said, I can do all the
      things you cannot do with my TS-850, and the command sets are the same, as
      far as I know.

      What did you mean you set the polling to 100 msec? With another program?

      73,
      Tom

      Tom,

      I tried, unsuccessfully to get Flow Control working on my serial ports and
      went back to 2 wire only. I agree that if it works for most function, it
      should work for all. If you think these issue might be due to Flow Control,
      let me know and I'll work further at getting FC working.

      I loaded up Ham Radio Deluxe to see how it handled the TS-50. All functions
      worked as they should. I could SPLIT and SWAP VFOs OK as well.

      On MM 5.0.82 (WIN98SE)-SO2R it appears that MM can't set SPLIT (CTL-S or
      ALT/CTL-S) on the TS-50, but it does recognize that SPLIT was set manually
      on the radio. I reduced the polling to 100ms with no problems. Also the same
      as Left or right radio.

      RIT: will not set/reset RIT but sees RIT changes on the radio. Reads the RIT
      frequency OK.

      MODE: Mode is read OK by MM and set correctly by MM when sent from the call
      window. As the TS-50 doesn't have an RTTY mode it locks when clicking the BM
      mode as follows:

      - Start with radio in AM.
      - 1st BM click goes to CW
      - 2nd BM click goes to USB (20 meters)
      - 3rd BM click tries to go to RTTY but reverts to USB
      - Further BM clicks try to go to RTTY and revert to USB.

      In SO2V:
      - Alt-F10 will not swap VFOs

      OK Tom,

      More testing.

      Flow control, but that really depends on your interface. If anything
      works, then it is very unlikely that your flow control choice is the
      problem.

      Tom,

      Thanks for the input.

      Do you have CTS/RTS for Flow control or are you just using RX/TX data?

      It's working as a second radio here. I was able to set split, toggle
      split,
      etc. I was also able to click on the bandmap mode and change the
      mode.
      Mine is a TS-850.

      All Kenwoods are handled the same in the program, as you would guess,
      since
      you can't specify a model.

      73,
      Tom

      I just connected my old TS-50 as a second radio. I see the changes
      made at
      the radio in MM and can send some commands (Band Up/Dwn, Set Freq) but
      can't
      get a few others to work (Set Split,Toggle Split). Also clicking the
      Mode
      button on BM will not change the mode on the radio, was a problem with
      the
      1000(D). Typing Mode in the CALL window does change modes.

      As I've never used SO2R before or a Kenwood on MM, I might need some
      guidance.

      First is the Kenwood CAT interface. I connected it up just using TX/RX
      data
      and looped CTS/RTS. Does the Kenwood require CTS/RTS to work properly?
