    I have a yaesu 450 d and a cable between the radio and the computer. I have the pcc software installed and my computer device manager shows the serial to usb cable is on com 5. However when I turn on the radio I get several errors with the radio stuck in transmit and the pcc software says com port error. I have tried three cables and all of them are supposed to work with a yaesu 450d also when I plug in the cable to the usb slot the radio clicks three times and gets stuck in transmit.

    See if you can find an older version of HRD. Just make sure not to update!

    You might want to check the menu settings on the FT450D. Look at CAT-RTS, CAT -RATE, DATA TYPE and DIG-VOX. My rig locks up in transmit if I forget to change settings when I go from RTTY to FT8 or HRD control. Also some USB to serial converters are problematic. W3YY advises to use one with "FTDI" chipset and sells them on his site. He also has some tips on troubleshooting the serial interface.
