Gentlemen, I have output and firmly believe the TS-890 itself is
It appears that turning the data mode on using the Data Button on
the rig does not select the USB Audio as the data source. I
started ACRP-890, an external Kenwood Rig control program, noticed
in the status bar at the bottom said ACC-2 was the modulation
source, also while the rig indicated USB-D, the ACRP program
showed just USB as the mode. After clicking the DATA button on
the ACRP-890 software, the ACRP software correctly displayed the
mode as USB-D, and the modulation source at the bottom correctly
showed USB audio as the modulation source. Upon clickin CQ in my
MixW software it keyed, and I had power out of the rig. I was
able conduct a QSO with WA5AMM in South Carolina.
This morning, I fired up the rig, and attempted to use MixW to
CQ, had the rig displaying USB-D, no power out. I went to
ACRP-890, noticed the modulation was back to ACC-2, mode displayed
as USB. Had to click the Data button in ACRP to get it to show
USB-D and the USB Audio as modulation sourcc. I was able then to
transmit the CQ with power out.
So, something is awry in the rig. I should not have to have ACRP
running and go through all these steps to operate every time I
turn the rig on. The rig should be completely self-functional,
and operate all features as a stand alone entity.
Again thanks to all for assistance. I am currently attempting to
get Kenwood Customer Support to agree, and be able to return this
defective rig to the dealer for replacement.
