Re: sync intermittent issues with external radio

Siegfried Jackstien

hmm ... just a guess ... maybe it is cause you have 2 comports in your kenwood??

either use normal serial cable ... and normal audio connect

or use usb cable (that also has comport on same cable

justc a cguess but two comports for same radio control??? can that work??

Love SDR Console. Making me crazy with intermittent loss of sync with external radio. I'm using SDR Console v3.0.12 (issue has been constant with prior versions). My guess is I've got something set incorrectly. Although I note that HPSDR does not have this issue.

Will go along swimmingly then the Kenwood TS-590SG via Omni-rig and the Airspy HF+ fail to syncronize. Usually when I move to a new spot in DXLabs SpotCollector. Sometimes I just pull up Console's External Radio Options and then the Omni-Rig settings. Close them up and all is well. Other times; like this mornings I quite Console then restart and everything syncs.

Presently the damn thing is working fine. As Charlie Brown used to say - ARRGGGH.
