Packet Connection

Last Updated: 08/08/2013
Realize that the USB-K5G is made to replicate the original serial cable from Kenwood, PG-5G.  Whatever that original cable can be used for, the USB-K5G will work in its place. 

As for packet, the manual for the radio states on page 11

This terminal is for connecting to a PC (this is the 8-pin connection on the back of the head) using the PG-5G (option) cable.  Based on this statement, the USB-K5G will work. 

Note:  Remember, this is not the port through which the radio programs.
