kxpa100 computer interface

Gary Slagel
 I'd like to be able to use my kx3/kxpa100 along with my k3 for so2r.  I've got n1mm+ talking to both the k3 and the kx3 and I can even talk to the kx3 through the kxpa100 connection.  However, I can only talk to the kx3 through the kxpa100 connection when the kxpa100 is off!  This kind of defeats the purpose of having the kxpa100.  Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks, Gary/KT0A

Gary,

You did not specify the cable connections that you are using.  You
should have the KXPACBL for best integration with the KX3.  See pages 14
and 15 of the KXPA100 manual.

If you do have those cables and have them connected correctly, then I
would say that you have a problem with the KXPA100 and that you should
contact Elecraft support.

Thanks Don.... I took a look and I've got the cables all right.  But, Dick at elecraft suggested I look at communication speed that I had n1mm+ set at and set it to 38,400 and that took care of it.
Thanks for the answers and hope this helps someone else as well. Gary SlagelAce Hardware #14814207 So ChicagoHot Springs, SD 57747(605) 890-2310KT0A

My advice would be to set the comm speed of the KX3 to 38400 as well,
that way you can seamlessly use the KX3 when the amp is off or not
connected.  The amp will autodetect the new speed for the KX3 and you
will not have to change anything else.
