AB3AP K2 Settings Retrieval Software

It's always a good idea to have the state of your K2 stored away in case your rig ever requires a reset or undergoes some other event catastrophic to the stored settings. This program uses the K2's KIO2 serial port to grab those settings.

REMEMBER! You must plug the frequency counter into the BFO TP2 (Test Point 2) in order to retrieve BFO settings. That part's not wireless. :-)

Running the Program

Turn on your K2, note the serial port, and start the program. When you click the "Read Settings" button, the program will ask you for a file name. This is the file where your settings will be written. The K2 display will begin quickly flipping through settings as they are read. Don't worry, this is expected and will take a couple minutes to complete.

Run it on this page.

Shortcomings

I'm not lucky enough to have any transverters so I didn't write code to retrieve TRN info.

Sample Output

Here is the actual output of the program when run against my K2. If you have a KDSP2 board, the program will also print out those settings. You can see I reset my mine pretty close to factory defaults for this run.
