Can't tell, not enough data, no screen shots.

I told WT my radio was ALL KENWOOD

Did you select the right COM port in Win-Test for Radio 1?  Did you click,
Click Configure, then click the "Use Kenwood(HF) Defaults" button?  It sets
4800,N,8,2 by default.  You may need to change this to match your radio:

This is also a good suggestion.  Some USB-to-Serial adapters use these pins
for power.

Check the Windows Device Manager.  Expand Ports, right click on the COM
port, Properties, check the DRIVER type.  If Prolific, stop.  No good.  It
may work for a little while, but probably won't work reliably for an entire
contest.  Even if FTDI, it may still not work if a Prolific USB-to-Serial
adapter driver is still installed on the system, even if it's not connected.
