I am not sure if they just rebranded this radio for Europe or which came first but it is basically a TM-8000 series they called Tecnet.  Was an inexpensive radio which also had the I/O that the more expensive radios had.

I have software for the tecnet radios I will upload if you want to give it a try.  Very basic software and it is an early version.

Hi no it didn't work because my maxon lead is serial I used a usb adaptor still didn't work because the usb driver is specific to a certain chipset in the cable and can't find this cable any ideas on the usb cable?

so what are you say it wont work because of the cable. i can suggest to if you can get the wiring diagram you purchase one of these and make one or get .laptop which has serial load the software and use it.


you can use one of this and make the cable#http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-to-TTL-UART-6PIN-CP2102-Module-Serial-Converter-T1/252583963023?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB-2-0-to-TTL-UART-6PIN-CP2102-Module-Serial-Converter-T1/252583963023?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649)

You should be able to find the driver.  After you plug it in right click on my computer and click manage.  Go to Device Manager.  Possible it would be under Ports or USB Controllers.  You will see a device with a yellow explination mark on it.  Right click on that and go to properties.  Click details tab and under dropdown click hardware Ids.  Report back the first line and we can find a driver for you.

Hi yes the first line says

"ACPI\PNP0501

That is coming back as a touchscreen driver.  Unplug the serial converter and make note of any devices with the explanation point on them.  Then plug it back in and see if a new one pops up.

Hi I don't have touch screen on the laptop and there is no exclamation mark against the com port the cable is there but the software reports com 3 picked up but says "connect programming cable" can the problem be the VCD ? not picking up the cable

I have no idea. Does com3 show up only when you have the converter plugged in?

I agree with tech.  I always buy a computer with a serial port.  I have used a pcmia serial adapter with a laptop before with very good success.  Maybe you have a desktop with a serial port or know someone that does?

Hi

the cable I'm using is for the pm200 which uses 15pin to 9 pin serial lead not the mic socket as there is no rd tx data transfer from there and plugged into the com1 serial port then using supplied tm8000 tecsun software I select com 1 and then read the radio it reports make sure of the correct cable connection the radio makes a noise when I read the radio then makes a noise again before the error message I still think it's a driver problem
