I have an arraylist that is created with a variable number of CurrCOMPort

When I go into the SendRequestCommand() sub I always seem to have my indicatorPort referencing to my last added in  CurrCOMPort #.

How Can I ahve it so that it loops through all comport and the indicatorPort refences the correct serial object?
Private WithEvents IndicatorPort As IO.Ports.SerialPort
 Public Sub Indicator_COM()
        Dim intloop As Integer
        'Dim IndicatorCOMPort As String
        For intloop = 0 To ActiveCOM.Count - 1
            IndicatorPort = New IO.Ports.SerialPort
            IndicatorPort.PortName = "COM" & ActiveCOM(intloop)
            IndicatorPort.BaudRate = 57600
            IndicatorPort.DataBits = 8
            IndicatorPort.Parity = IO.Ports.Parity.None
            IndicatorPort.StopBits = IO.Ports.StopBits.One
            IndicatorPort.Open()
            CurrCOMPort.Add(IndicatorPort)
        Next
    End Sub
 
 
 Public Sub SendRequestCommand()
        Dim intloop As Integer
        For intloop = 0 To CurrCOMPort.Count - 1
            IndicatorPort.Write("[REQ]")
        Next
 
    End Sub

Wow... that shouldn't have even compiled.
Use this:
        For intloop = 0 To CurrCOMPort.Count - 1
            IndicatorPort = CurrCompPort.Item(intloop)
            IndicatorPort.Write("[REQ]")
        Next
