It is not necessary to configure anything with the EZMaster console, all 
is done by Win-Test itself when the program starts (or after you changed 
the settings in the "EZMaster property" windows of WT).

You are probably the first one who are testing the Tentec Orion in real 
situation. I only tested it here with a simulator but not with a real 
radio. Maybe there is something wrong in Win-Test, but if you agree we 
can work together to get it fixed. A good starting point would be, as 
Larry said in a previous mail, to try the radio with a direct connection 
to the computer (not through the EZMaster). Please tell us if it works 
better that way.

Regarding the Icom radio, you should try to disable the "CI-V" mode in 
the radio menu if it is not already the case. That should be enough to 
get it working with Win-Test.

Hope this helps,
