The cable communicates directly with a PC through the now popular and standard USB interface. It emulates a Serial Port but that port communicates with a radio at TTL voltage levels. A Serial Port connection is not needed since the cable emulates one for you. The cable is compatible with all versions of Windows® that support USB operation. This only includes Windows® 98SE, ME, W2K, XP, Vista or higher.Please click here to download necessary USB drivers. As usual a virtual Serial Port is created, so that any Windows™ based rig control software that is compatible with your computer and radio may be used.
