Okay, well, if you're getting characters echoed, that should mean that 
the USB bit (and drivers) are working, as well as the USB-to-serial chip 
inside that hood.  The TX and RX lines on the RS232 side are tied 
together, which makes it echo.  So, that should eliminate everything up 
until the bit of cable that runs to the connector and the radio.  I'd 
say it's clear that it's something in one of those pieces.

Hopefully you can get that resolved, and I look forward to hearing about 
it :)
