[chirp_users] Has anyone successfully programmed a Kenwood TM-D700 with Chirp?

Tom,

What com port did you use? I keep hearing a rumor that Kenwood doesn’t like com port numbers above 4.

Rich...I just downloaded to CHIRP from my D700A.  I connect my radio directly to a serial port at the back of my computer and when I start the download I set the model number to detect rather than D700.

Thank you for relying Mike!

What does it take to get the D-700 to cooperate?  I have a new USB-63
cable from RT Systems, downloaded the driver first (and successfully), but I
cannot download any data from the DM-700.  Com port is 8.  When downloading
from radio, when I click 'OK', nothing happens at all.

I don't know if this is a clue, but the second time I try to download, I
get an error message "could not open port COM8: [Error 5] Access is denied."

It's not like I am inexperienced, I have programmed 2 HT's my Kenwood TM V71-A
dual band mobile successfully in the past on this computer.  Hoping to transfer those
channels over through Chirp.

Any ideas of things to try?

Thanks again,

Rich,
 I have.  You connect to the RS-232 port.  You might need a gender changer if using a straight serial cable. If dealing with USB get a Kenwood specific cable with a FTDI chipset. The cable that RT Systems sells with there software works perfect all the time.

1) Has anyone successfully programmed a Kenwood TM-D700 with Chirp?

2) What cable did you use?

3) Does that cable connect to the 9-pin RS-232 on the radio, or the 6-pin mini DIN connector?

Thank you,
