Default Vertex VX-150 Problems.


hello, i have this vx-150. it's in great condition and the only mods that have been done is a MARS/CAP mod. when i program a channel and input the PL tone and offsets, they never save. as soon as i change channels then come back to the original channel, all my settings are gone and i have to input the info again. it's very frustrating. so i found this software called VX150 COMMANDER. very easy software, used it to input all the info for the local repeaters and what not. i was hoping maybe the info would save by using the software....... well, the software will not import the settings to the radio. i get a timed out message everytime i try to import to the radio. does anyone else have these problems with their vx-150?

I have a VX150 that I programmed using the Commander software. In fact, it's one of my favorite radios. Sounds to me like the radio is having a problem communicating with your computer.

Do this:

Connect your radio to your P.C.

Then:

Open Windows, Click on the Start button, then Settings ---> Control Panel --> System --> Hardware Tab --> Device Manager --> Ports (Com & LPT). Now, click on the plus sign to expand Ports. Here you should see which comm port your radio is using.

Now that you know this.

Open the Commander radio program. Go to Settings --> Comm port and click on the comm port your radio is using in Windows.

You should be all set. Good Luck!

Sound like a case of no idea what you are doing. For simple tasks, I find it just as easy to use the keypad.

A quick search should lead you to a vast wealth of information on that particular programming software as well.
