My 320-EX speedlight will not trigger via wireless radio trigger (YONGNUO RF 602 RX). My camera is a 60D. The radio transmitter mounted on the hot shoe does communicate with the receiver mounted on the speedlight hotshoe. I can actually fire the flash using the test buttom on the transmitter. However, when I take a photo, the flash will not fire. I can only use the 320 EX speedlight via optical trigger, which I do not want. Can the 320-EX speedlight be triggered by a radio transmitter at all ? Can someone help ? Thank you

Yes, the 320 can be triggered with the RF-602, as you show by using the test button. Most likely your camera is not telling the transmitter to fire. A couple of common causes, if it’s not one of these we can look deeper:

Hi Skirball - many thanks!!! The problem was due to liveview being actived as you suspected. As soon as I turned it off, the radio trigger RF 602 worked flawlessly with the 320 EX speedlight. Thanks againn. I was so frustrated. One obvious thing I learnt is that if you are not using fresh batteries, you will have to wait 5 - 10 seconds before the flash can fire.

Glad it worked for you. If you want to try using live view with off-camera flash you can try turning off the "silent mode" in the menu, I think that trick works for the 60D.
5-10 seconds is a long time for recycling. I suggest you pick up a set of Eneloops.
