Okay, I just fixed the problem with my TS-790A.  It appears that the
connector wasn't pushed in all the way into the back of the radio...  As
an IT guy, I always look at the most complex fixes.  It has to be with
the software or the computer, but sometimes it is just with user.

Thanks for all that responded.

SatPC32 seems to recognize the port (it doesn't error out like it did when the wrong COM port was presented to the software originally).  With that side working (I guess) the radio just sits there and doesn't do anything.  I reviewed the manual for the 790 but it didn't have any instructions to make the radio start accepting CAT instructions.  Anyone have one of these radios setup in this configuration that can help me out?
