Hi Robert,

Thanks for the info. There were a couple of items in your list that I didn't 
have. I'll try them tonight and see if it helps..

My interface uses an external power source, so I'm positive it's not an 
interface power issue.

I'll be sure and post a 100% working config once I've got it going.

Thanks. 73

  While I'm not using an 706, but a Syntor X with an XCAT here's the related 
stuff in my rpt.conf
  (gleaned mostly from an archived Tom Sawyer post that I found in a Google 
search)

  Yes, the CIV address is in decimal.

  When I used to mess with my 706mkIIg with Ham Radio Deluxe, the serial/CIV 
level converter
  I used needed to have one of the handshake leads forced on to power the 
interface. I want to say DTR, but not sure.
  If that's the case I also remember seeing a way to set a ttyS to do that. 
But again, memory fails me as to the command (setserial ?).
