I have a 396XT radio that all of a sudden will not talk to the BuTel software and computer I have been using for programming. The message is the radio is not connected. It connected just fine prior to just recently. The only thing new I did was purchased an HP 1 and use the BuTel software and Sentinal software with the radio. The HP 1 connects just fine with the computer. Is there a conflict with drivers/radios?

For programming, the HP1 doesn't use the serial driver, but if you loaded the one that is supplied, you may have to check to see if you've got another Com port now. With the serial cable hooked up test all available Com ports in the 396XT software..

I think they both use FTDI chipset. Check the baud rate and com port for the 396xt and see if they match up with butels software
