      3610 does not transmit serial data on the RS232 TD and RD lines. Instead, they bit-bang data using RTS/CTS/DTR/DCD by some bizzare means. I could not get the 3610 to work via a USB-to-serial dongle nor via my EdgePort 8 port serial-to-USB.

      The designers of the 3610 (LaCrosse's supplier) made a really stupid decision in doing this in this era of disappearing serial ports on PCs.
