    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have used Ham Radio Deluxe with my older XP laptop a few years ago. Since acquiring Vista, same program and CI-V level converter cable do not function with the radio.
Initially, by mistake, I plugged the converter cable into the RTTY port which is right next to the remote control jack. After doing all the recos the HRD folks suggest, no progress has been made. The driver/s are updated and the USB ports are in sync. Thinking the converter cable was blown/shot, I purchased another cable. Same problem. So, if there was a way of measuring the output from the radio I could tell if the radio needs to be repaired. Any ideas GREATLY appreciated. Tnx K2DTE Richard
