I thought the RT system cables were intended for programing and not control...... Is it possible that the control option is absent on your model?
Just a thought....

I just tried a generic KeySpan USB to serial adapter on my Win 7 Pro 64
bit machine and it worked fine. My default baud rate setting was 9600
from SATPC32. I did have to change the radio CAT speed to 9600 just for
the quick test (was 57600).

I recently received one, and loaded the drivers per the instructions and I am unable to get SATPC32 to connect with the 847. I am running a laptop with Windows 7. Does anyone currently have another vendor's cable that is working with the FT-847? Thanks, and please contact me off list at wa7eth at frontier.com so I don't clutter up the BB with my problems. Thanks..73'..Ed WA7ETH
