Hi Ed,

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
