As a recent baby tech I have been gifted an Alinco DJ-500t. I have tired running it through an ftdi chip (2 actually to double check it wasn't the chip). I have tried every possible wire combination that I could think of. Nothing seems to be working right. It won't load the radio in the Alinco program. I'm stuck trying to program it by hand for now.

Does any body have (dumb, baby tech proof) instructions for how to program this radio? Everything I have found online is saying to plug it in and that's it. Maybe an actual writing diagram for the plug to the ftdi chip and whether or not the radio needs to be in clone mode or not?

Any help is appreciated!
