Has anyone used the + version on CW yet?
Really like to know if that addressed the issue that all the others had.

Ask direct that's easiest way groupe@president-electronics.com

My guess maybe, but certainly not sure at all. I've not considered using it at all on mine

Hi, I'm new here but this forum seems to be a good source to solve my problem :-)

Yesterday I got my brand new Lincoln II+ (xmas present to myself)
First impression is ok but but I was a bit disappointed that they have left out the 11m band, I have no plans to use it on that band but I had a plan using 27.555 as a monitor freq. to see if there is some possible activity on 10m, does anyone know if there is a mod for that ?

My second problem is that I'm not able to get the software from President to operate. I assume when connecting the radio to a Windows computer it will appear as a com port but there is nothing in my Device Manager.
I made a quick test and connected it to a linux computer and the dmsg commad show that the radio is connect but does Windows need any special comport driver ?

There is a wire loop inside the radio which you need to cut which then enables 11m

Pretty sure the L2 isnt PC programmable unlike the other radio which share similar internals. (CRE-8900, AT-6666, DR-135UK etc)

I don't think the L2+ has the usual wire to cut but I may be wrong. I have one and I know it was modified by Knights before it left. It was not a wire as far as I understand.

Might just be a couple of button presses then like on the Alinco DR-135.

Thanks everyone, there is no wire to cut like I have seen on other Lincoln radios.
I have attached a picture showing

Regarding the programming via PC, there is a programming software for this L2+ and the President site but I'm not able to make the communication work so I have sent a mail asking if there is any special com port driver that is neede.

Cable ordered :-)
But the next step now is to find out how to open it for 11m

Anyone ?

Might be worth emailing President?

It is probably a case of pressing a couple of buttons as you switch it on.
