The Baofeng UV-5R comes with a USB cable to program the device. It appears in Windows as COM3. I have tried to use COM3 with the free radio network client but I have had no success. Changing all of the DTS, CTS, etc. settings makes no difference.

Has anyone successfully connected this device?

Thanks.

I think you need the right driver for that device.
Otherwise it will not work, I presume.

I did find a driver that makes the USB cable appear as COM3 and that allows be to successfully connect to the device to program it.

However when I try connecting to COM3 using a simple vt100 terminal emulator like putty, I get absolutely no response.

Can someone confirm that a working driver for your device makes the COM interface appear in a terminal like putty? Are you able to send ATA commands?

Thanks.

My knowledge about computers is not so big, so I am afraid I can not solve this for you.
Have you tried to contact the 409 shop? Perhaps they can help you?

Hello Gmagill,

The 'Programing' cable you are using right now is not made to connect to FRN.

The FRN Interface you need works like, If a Comport pin is High, than the Radio is going to transmit, but the cable you have now, is made for programing your radio, not for Transmitting etc..


Go to http://www.freeradionetwork.eu and check: Interface
Thats the one you need for you portable!

Does anyone have a source online for the Elomax I/O chip?

The link on here is broken.

At http://www.freeradionetwork.nl/interface/interface.htm is a new version of the interface.
This will work with the soundcard and not with serial or usb.

Good luck

For Baofeng I know that one of our Admins has developed his own "cable" for these radios. He is using a mobile phone USB to Serial cable.
