    Default Alinco DJ-V17 - Programming Software

    I have recently bought the Alinco DJ-V17 handheld transceiver and am having difficulty getting the cloning software to work - has anyone else had similar problems and if so how did you get round them?
    I have downloaded the free DJ-V17/S17 Clone Utility and acquired the interface cable to allow me to connect to the serial port (COM1) on my personal computer. I even realised, even though it is not made clear anywhere, that I needed a 3.5mm to 2.5mm jack plug converter to allow me to plug the interface cable into the mic port of the EDS-10 cable supplied with the handheld.
    With everything connected I put the handheld into CLONE mode by pressing the PTT key three times while holding in the MONI key. Then fired up the clone software. As soon as I try and read/write I get a "communication error" message appearing on the computer and an RD0E00 (or similar) code appearing on the LCD screen of the handheld.
    As far as I can tell I have all the right cables and connectors with everything connected properly.
    I also have an Icom IC-R5 handheld scanner and a Yaesu FT7800 both of which I have successfully managed to connect and programme through the computer using the relevant software.
    I thought that programming the Alinco via the software would be easier than trying to work out how to do it all manually.

    You have to match the COM port parameters in the main program to the radio's settings (I guess).
    Check in the manual for the default settings your radio uses and set up your COM port to use the same.

    For example, my KAM uses 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, at 9600 baud, so I have to set my COM port to those parameters for it to communicate.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I cannot find any reference to the parameters that the radio is expecting in the user guide or service guide. However, my computer COM1 port is set to the same parameters that you have been using.

    While reading through this link:-
    http://www.alinco.com/Products/DJV17/
    it seems that it uses an autobaud sequence.

    Try doing a read before a write...
