Introduction

To interface this console to another program such as a logbook use a virtual serial cable, for example VSP Manager by K5FR (an excellent free product which works on 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows including Windows 7).

Virtual Serial Cable

In this example a virtual serial cable with ports COM30 and COM31 is created.

Now connect one end (COM30) to the 3rd-party program and the other end (COM31) to this console.

Console Serial Ports

In the console select the serial port from the Program Options - Serial Ports window.

The ports are opened:

  1. when you make selections in this window, and
  2. when you restart the program.
