Well, it looks like I'm making a shift to the RT Systems USB cable and programming software. I guess I'm rather fickle when it comes to technology I'm not comfortable with. The serial/USB converter I ordered would probably be touch and go - it might work - it might not - so I am
told. So I'm returning $100 worth of Kenwood serial programming cables back to GigiParts and getting $99 worth of RT Systems USB cables and programming software for my 2 Kenwood radios.
The hour's worth of data entry into the 6A programming software won't go to waste. It was a good learning experience. I doubt that I will be able to simply copy and paste the Kenwood channel data into the RT Systems' spreadsheet format. But at least I know that when one radio's programming is complete, I can just port it over to the other radio via the RT System software. Not sure it is that simple using the Kenwood software for 2 different models of radios designed 10 years apart.
The more I learn, the more I realize that I don't know a lot more than I thought I didn't know.
